OverviewHardware: Cases & PSU
WHAT WE LIKED:Great cable management for a Mid-Tower, flexible HDD bay, locking mechanism for the ODD drives, good size window, inexpensive $54.99 price tag
WHAT WE DISLIKED:Fan filters are secured into place is awkward. Doesn't support larger custom water cooling without case modding.
Enermax has added a new case to their already impressive line-up. The Coenus is a mid-tower case that comes in either black or gunmetal grey. This mid-tower case supports high end GPUs with seven expansion slots for two or three way SLI/CF depending on the size of your cards. We had no problem fitting in two GTX 680s as you will see later in this review. The Coenus can fit up to seven 3.5″ devices depending on the configuration you choose.
The Coenus sports a large smoke-colored window, which is raised outward for those using taller heatsinks. This version of the case includes one 120mm Red LED fan and one rear 120mm exhaust fan. With mid-tower cases we frequently worry about cable management… fitting larger PSUs and a few other things can sometimes be difficult in a mid-tower. Let’s see if Enermax has come up with a winner by avoiding this issue.
