Enermax is known largely for their power supplies but they also have some solid gaming cases. Today I will be taking a look at the Hoplite-ST, which is Enermax’s newest mid tower case. If abstract-looking PC cases aren’t your cup of tea then the new Hoplite-ST may be something that will intrigue you. The mid tower case from Enermax comes in to two different colors (white and black) and has a simple, classy looking exterior, which is sometimes hard to come by in a gaming case these days.
This case has all the gaming features you could need, like tool-less drive bays, an external hard drive SATA port, a transparent side window, good cable management, an external fan controller and more. Yet it still retains a simple and elegant design. Let’s see if Enermax’s cases are as good as their power supplies, and see if perhaps this is the right case to house your next build. First, here is a litte more about the manufacturer.
“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.”
Next we have the specs and packaging.
