This case just seems well feature-less and barren for 70 dollars, I mean yeah it's branded Enermax and it's painted inside, but what else does it have, just seems meh, in both design and features.

Looks OK to me - it has cable management holes, a bottom mounted PSU, side loading for the HDD rack, a space behind the CPU bracket for easy cooler removal/cleaning without removing the motherboard. It's also painted on the inside.

Not sure if i like the glossy mirror finish on the front of those renders but i'm not the target market for a mid-range case like this.

I think this case looks AWESOME for $70. Cable management, sharp looks, and hopefully solid build quality. I like the mirror finish. The point is to not touch the outside of the computer after building it. Keep it nice n' shiny.

A multicolor fan ... well, if THAT ain't something to pay 70 bucks for! :roll:

Seriously, though, the case looks neat. It's just one of them shiny bricks that have nothing in excess, cover all the basics for a modern system and have a premium name-tag on it, to justify the $$.

Congrats Enermax, you've managed another cookie-cutter case. Oh, sorry, it's got a new gimicky fan this time so it's obviously a different case. At least you were kind enough to include a rear 120mm fan too then... Oh, wait nope, guess not. Sorry Enermax, better luck next time.

One 12 cm fan on the bottom and two on the top, and a shroud for the top fans. That should do it. Looks like a good base for a modded case. Really liking the tinted front.
