Introduction

Enso mid-Tower, Tempered Glass ATX PC Chassis
With an integrated LED design and tempered see-through glass 

In this review, we check out the new 89 USD and 85 EUR BitFenix Enso chassis, a product series that is designed for a somewhat mainstream crowd but still loaded with features and really nice looks, thanks to an embedded RGB lighting system. And yes, it has been fitted with tempered glass. And that does make this chassis look very special. Wanna have a peek?

The Enso is a product series that is designed with style and features in mind. Next to that, it also harbors some innovative features. The chassis is all AURA Sync compatible (ASUS) but also works fine without it of course as the company includes its own RGB LED controller. The chassis offers a fairly tool-free installation, offers much space, loads of room for cable-routing and, yeah, it does look cool, VERY cool if I may say so. You'll notice that the chassis has been fitted with tempered glass on both sides. And that brings this chassis look into the 2017/2018 trend. That tempered glass is see-through yet black tinted on the left side so you can observe your components, but to keep the style in line and the looks refined, the right side glass panel would normally show ugly cables at the backside, hence they coated it. It's these little intricate things that make this chassis stand out really. This chassis can house mini-ITX, micro ATX and ATX (but not E-ATX over 272mm and XL-ATX) motherboards and offers decent space to do your "thang". You can mount three SSDs at the backside. At the front, you will spot USB 3.0 connectors and your typical 3.5 mm HD audio jacks. The Enso comes pre-fitted with front side RGB LEDs to modernize the build aesthetics. Air and water cooling options are included, with support for up to a 280 mm radiator up to 35 mm thick and a 120 mm radiator in the front as well as the rear. It's also equipped with removable dust filters which allow for easy building and maintenance.
