Summary:

Enermax has definitely stepped up their game with the Thormax GT. The build quality is good, and the cooling options are good as well. The Thormax GT leaves you with plenty of room when working on the inside, as well as between the left side door and MB tray for great cable management. If we had anything to nitpick about, it was very disappointing to see the three cable pass-through areas on the inside with no rubber grommets installed. We were also disappointed by the lack of ventilation up front for one fan under the front I/O panel. (This was only when we had a 360mm rad installed.)

You may not get too excited over the lighting features of the 180mm Vegas fans the way we did, but on another note, you can shut that off. Regardless, these fans do move a lot of air and are very quiet. In addition, for many, it’s nice to be able to light up your case and show off your build. We especially liked the front I/O panel with its many features and most definitely enjoyed the built in fan speed control to keep it running cool and quiet.

The multiple choices in the different areas for mounting HDDs or SSD drives is a welcome addition. It makes it so much easier to configure your build for not just looks but performance and water cooling options as well. This makes it a no brainer for anyone and everyone who is looking for a top notch full tower chassis with all the bells and whistles to go with it.

The Enermax Thormax GT covers almost all the bases. Gamers and enthusiasts alike are going to love the many advanced cooling options it brings as well as the ease of install that it offers. At an MSRP of $150.00 USD, it’s definitely worth considering and worth the investment. The Enermax Thormax Giant garners PureOverclock’s Great Hardware Award!

    What a stupid window on the case. It just shows of your cables.

    The window does block your view of most everything inside but also brings with it additional cooling over the MB and GPU areas when gaming with the 180mm fan.

    How does it compare to Tt Chaser Mk-1?

      The Thormax is slightly larger. Supports up to Eatx boards. The window design is slightly better as well. Quality wise I would say they are even. I do not care for the look of either. If I had to pick I would go with the Thormax.
