Enermax Fulmo GT review -
Product Showcase Exterior
The chassis is made out of a steel structure with black faceplate/bezel, the bezel has an plastic inlay. As you can see at the front side, it supports 4x External 5.25" and a good 10x Internal 3.5/2.5". It makes the chassis an ATX full-tower or as some say, Jumbo Tower.
The door covers almost the entire height of the chassis.the panels to the right and left can be removed.
When we flip around the unit we can see the all closed side panel a little better. The panel can be removed be removing two thumbnails at the back and then pull it towards you, it is the old traditional way of chassis panel removal. The size of the chassis by the way is is chassis is D 674 x W 235 x H 640 mm.
The backside then. Next to the rear IO we spot a 140mm (included) fan. All fans in this chassis can be PWM fan controlled. The Fulmo GT has 9 card slots and we spot seven grommet holes, these could be used for some sort of external liquid cooling.
Here we can see the left opposing side panel, with the same locking mechanism. Two thumbscrews at the rear secure it down. The matte black paintjob is a little sensitive to scratches by the way.
On top we see Front panel connectors, You'll have plenty of them including MIC/Headphones, a good four USB 3.0, lacking is a Firewire connector but there is an eSATA port. Also here we have a power on/off button and reset switch as well as small activity LEDs. Also an switch is there for the FAN lighting, the included vegas fans are asesome.
You get 6 LED effects from the three pre-installed blue 18cm Vegas fan at the front (1x) and at the side (2x) with patented circular LED light and 6 LED modes to choose from. LED button on the top of the case to synchronously change the light effects of the three integrated fans.
Below the IO ports we spot four 5.25" drive bays. The entire front panel is removable with clip on fan slots, the meshed 5.25" covers are protected with dust filters. The gap in-between the top and side panel is in fact a vent for air flow.
Located behind the frontpanel is a HDD dock. Basically slide on the storage unit and you are set to go.
Hot-swap dock at the top to plug-in external 2.5” and 3.5” SATA HDD/SSD. You receive a little cover for the SATA connector to keep dust away whould you not use it.
We review and test the Fulmo GT. Enermax has been going very strong with their power supply and fans. For a while now they also offer PC cases, and more recently they released what seems to be the biggest chassis I've ever laid my hands on. This chassis series has HPTX support for the bigger than biggest motherboards and some pretty cool features as well.
Enermax KW001 Briskie Keyboard mouse combo review
Keyboard kits come in all sizes, shapes and forms .. and that's next to a gazillion of manufacturers that offers them. Surprisingly enough a few weeks ago Enermax, the guys behind the best power supplies and the brightest fans also launched a keyboard/mouse combo. Briskie is all about value and as such for 25 USD/EUR you get a mouse and what we think is a very decent wireless RF keyboard.
Enermax Platimax 850W power supply review
Enermax always is able surprise us, they now have released the Platimax power supplies, that means a platinum certification and yeah .. that boils down to a 94% efficient product. Very few products get this certification. Today we'll grab a couple of older older supplies and see if what they claim is true, can we really save on energy. We fire off three PSU's at a P55 / Core i7 870 based system setup with a GeForce GTX 590. We then monitor power consumption in idle, CPU productivity (stress) mode and then lock into a gaming session.
Enermax MaxRevo 1350W PSU review
The MaxRevo is 1350 Watt .. with peak power available up-to 1620 Watt, yummie. Interestingly enough this is a nice small sized power supply, you'll hardly hear it, has plenty of modular options, wwell read is all modular and is 80 PLUS Gold certified. That makes the modular cables based MaxRevo PSU series 88-94% efficient @ 20-100% load.
