Enermax release Ostrog PC Case
Ryan Martin / 8 years ago
With the entry-level case Ostrog, Enermax successfully overcomes the contradiction between functionality and performance on the one hand and price on the other hand. The manufacturer relies on a generous and flexible case structure in order to gain space for an effective cooling system and oversized high-end components. With a width of 200mm, Ostrog significantly exceeds the dimensions of other cases in this price segment. That way, the new Enermax tower easily accommodates CPU coolers with a height of up to 174mm. Apart from that, users can remove the HDD cage, so that longer graphics cards can be installed (up to 413.8mm length).
An effective heat dissipation provides the basis for a stable system operation. In this regard, the Ostrog grants much room for an adequate customization of the cooling system: The midi tower hosts up to seven fans – one front, two side, one rear, one bottom and two top fans. One 12cm rear fan is delivered with the case. Screwless quick-release fasteners simplify the installation of ODD and HDD. Furthermore, Enermax includes a 3.5”-to-2.5” adapter, so that Ostrog supports the increasingly popular Solid State Drives (SSD) as well. On the top of the case, users can find one USB 3.0 and three USB 2.0 ports.
Ostrog stands out by its clear and timeless shapes. Apart from that, the coloured mesh frame forms a good contrast to the completely black coated case. In Europe, the manufacturer offers two colour variants of the midi tower – with black (ECA3250-B) or white (ECA3250-BW) mesh frame. Both models are now available at a MSRP of £39.90.
