Enermax Coenus

Posted August 15, 2013 by James Taylor in Cases & PSU







Total Score


Price at time of Review: $54.99 @ Micro Center


Great cable management for a Mid-Tower, flexible HDD bay, locking mechanism for the ODD drives, good size window, inexpensive $54.99 price tag


Fan filters are secured into place is awkward. Doesn't support larger custom water cooling without case modding.
If you're in the market for a budget friendly case that offers some great features, then you should take a loot at the Coenus. This mid-tower case will be able to fit high-end components and offers the "air" cooling folks more room than they will need.

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.

Before we start this review here is a word from Enermax,


Enermax was founded in 1990 by a group of young professional, enthusiastic, and high-tech oriented people in Taiwan. The main products we carry are switching power supplies, PC cases, industrial PC cases, pedestal and tower server cases, CPU coolers, second fans, mobile racks and other peripherals. Enermax has its own design groups and production line. Enermax’s Design engineers work around the clock to come up with the best solution and product to meet the demand of the market.”




    Nice build and a great case for the money.
    I use and like the Enermax brand myself.


    Great review man. I’ve been looking for an affordable case for my new gaming rig for a couple of days, and this review helped a lot. My only concern was the clearance between the GPUs and the Hard Drives, but the rig you put together clears all concerns. Good job bro!


    Great case, only problem i have had thus far is I bought 2 180mm fans to put into the top which was fine until I bought a Corsair H75 (push pull fans with rad), then the rad and the inner fan interfered with the back fan. Otherwise I love the cable management capability.

    As you can see in the top right side there is nice little hole for the 4/8 power cable (although the heatsink made it a pain to plug in)
