ENERMAX, a leading designer and manufacturer of high-performance PC hardware products, launches a new addressable RGB gaming chassis, StarryFort SF30. Featuring full ATX support, panoramic tempered glass side and front panel, a vivid LED strip on the side, and 4 x pre-installed SquA RGB fans, StarryFort SF30 presents a stunning gaming fortress that is ready to light up your masterpieces.

StarryFort SF30 comes with 4x pre-installed SquA RGB fans which feature unique square-shaped LED frame to create incredible lighting effects. This mid-tower gaming chassis supports addressable RGB lighting synchronization with motherboards featuring RGB header (4-pin assignment: +5V/D/-/G); you can program preferred lighting effects via the motherboard software. Moreover, for those who do not use the RGB-sync motherboards, the built-in integrated hub allows you to control the lighting synchronization of 6x addressable RGB devices through the lighting control button on the I/O panel. Characterized by dual tempered glass panels, StarryFort SF30 offers you a clear view of both your system components and vivid RGB illumination.



Ample Interior with Versatile Water-Cooling Options
StarryFort SF30 has spacious room for high-end components and advanced cooling. The gaming fortress supports 360/280/240mm radiator and offers 3 designated places for all-in-one liquid CPU cooler installation. Furthermore, StarryFort SF30 features a removable HDD cage; the design can help create extra space when users would like to install a longer power supply.

StarryFort SF30 will be available in March 2019.

For such a classy looking case it's odd that the front panel PCB is visible from the inside.

Might be to avoid clearance issues with large radiators? At the very least they could have made the PCB black, though. That's just lazy.

And a fan hub on the backside of the motherboard tray!
That's quite common, and a rather sensible place to put it. They could have sprung for a plastic casing to pretty it up, but why bother, really? As far as I can tell there isn't glass on that side of the case.

Lol, that is a foolish design to put on the front panel with the restricted rectangular air paths from top of semi blocked to the bottom of sort of receiving air. Good job *applause*

There's a decent gap around the vents all around, top to bottom - look at the front 3/4 perspective. They even took the (minor) care to angle the bezel surrounding the vents to lessen pressure loss. The side perspective makes it look like the vents are flush with the outer frame, which they clearly aren't, and none of them are blocked. Still not good ventilation, but likely not as bad as you seem to be implying.
