BitFenix Enso Mesh Tempered Glass Aura Sync Case Review
Peter Donnell / 4 months ago
As you can see, the chassis is finished in a lovely matte white. The colour matching on the plastic of the front panel and surround with the metal is pretty great too. There’s a slight texture to the entire finish too, which looks and feels fantastic; much nicer than it just being a flat and glossy finish, which can often look quite cheap. There’s a huge tempered glass window, which is crystal clear, so you better get that cable routing nice and tidy.
The glass is held in place with four thumb screws on the side. The outer edges of the glass are rounded off too, giving it a nicer quality finish and fewer sharp edges.
That black trim you can see is painted on the back of the glass. However, it covers over a black felt padding on the chassis that helps reduce vibrations on the glass and also creates a pretty airtight seal.
You’ll have no issues getting air into the Enso, that’s for sure. The entire front panel is one big air filter. The mesh section is magnetic too, so you can simply lift it out. However, it locks in pretty firmly, so it shouldn’t drop out every time you bump your leg against the case.
I love the angular design too, and it provides a great way for them to integrate those edge LED lights on each corner. We’ll see those in action shortly though.
No glass on the back of this one, but a solid white panel will do nicely. It’s clean, simple, and effective. Even the thumb screws at the back are white, keeping things nice and uniform.
Around the back, the white finish is pretty thorough. There’s a 120mm fan mount at the top, seven expansion slots, with reusable metal covers, and an ATX PSU mount. Nothing crazy, but it’s ticking all the right boxes here.
The top panel features a magnetic dust filter with a mesh design to allow for airflow.
However, if you want to close the holes up, there’s a magnetic solid cover included too. Which one is right for you? I don’t know, but personally, I would just leave the mesh one on, as I think it looks nicer.
There’s room for a pair of 120mm fans under there should you need it too. I don’t think radiators will fit, but you could always put them in the front or rear of the case.
The front I/O panel is nicely equipped too. It features a pair of USB 3.0 ports, as well as a pair of audio jacks. There are three controls in the middle, one for lighting, plus the usual power and reset buttons. The lighting button is connected to an internal hub, allowing you to control the RGB lighting should you not want to do it from your motherboard software.
