Internals then. First impression, that's enough room to work in for a mid sized tower, like what we see. If you have extremely an lengthy graphics cards then hey, not a problem. You can even seat four 425 mm graphics card.
Motherboards wise the chassis will support anything from small Micro ATX to HUGE HPTX form factors. And check out the all black design, that looks good, including cables and connectors. It would have been nice to see all cabling colored back as well though.
At the backside of the chassis we notice the big-ass gaping hole in the motherboard tray. This is a CPU backplate cutout which allows you to remove and install a new CPU cooler much easier.
Typically you'd need to take out the motherboard to install a new cooler, now you can access it from both sides without that unpleasant experience of removing a motherboard from the chassis. There is space for cable routing here, but not heaps of it. You should be able to get most stuff routed properly though. Obviously the grommet holes have rubber inserts to hide away cabling, that's a nice detail.
Front side again, with a bit of force you can remove the front bezel. It will give you easy access to the 5.25" bays but also you'll see a dust filter inside the bezel. The lower side shows one fan, a HUGE fan actually as it is a 1x blue 18cm Enermax Vegas fan.
At the left top side we can see the 120mm fan, these are included and installed for you already. In the upper mesh you'll notice that there is space for dual 120mm fans or a radiator, so yes you guessed wasn't that hard eh ? This chassis would be able to take in LCS obviously.
The space in there allows up to 280 mm radiators to fit. This chassis supports radiators with a maximum of 420mm. Location wise, well take a pick.
Located all the way at the bottom you can seat a power supply. Here again, length is just not an issue. Just below is a huge mesh where you can install extra fans again. Also a dust filter can be spotted.
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.
