With the Ostrog and the Vostok Advanced series, Enermax already carries two successful chassis lines which are designed for professional system building: The manufacturer follows an elegant, clean design and relies on a sturdy and user-friendly structure. Now, Enermax introduces Ostrog.Q and Thorex, two new compact midi towers which support standard ATX mainboards as well as the smaller micro-ATX form factor models.
Ostrog.Q: Functional Structure with High Cooling Capacity
In comparison with the remaining models of the Ostrog series, the new Ostrog.Q chassis is more compact. To overcome the space limitation, Enermax has adjusted the cooling concept of the new case: A large mesh front with two 12cm fan mounting slots increases the fresh air supply. Filters behind the mesh protect the system from dust. Ostrog.Q comes with one 12cm rear fan pre-installed which dissipates the warm air from the system. Apart from that, the chassis accommodates two side and one top fan optionally.
Screwless mounting systems facilitate and speed up the installation of 5.25" optical disk drives and 3.5" hard disk drives. The hard disk bay is composed from two sections, one for 3.5" and one for 2.5" HDDs or SSDs. The top 2.5" cage can be removed in order to integrate longer graphics cards or improve the air circulation inside the system. In this particular case, Enermax provides another slot for one 2.5" disk at the bottom of the bottom cage. Punched side panels allow for a comfortable hidden cable routing behind the mainboard tray and the installation of tall tower coolers with max. 174mm of heights.
Thorex: Compact Case with Prominent Front Design
Thorex, the second newcomer tower from Enermax, is designed for basic gaming rigs. While the internal structure and functionality of this case is almost identically equal to the Ostrog.Q, the style of the two models varies significantly. Thorex has a clear-cut shape with a striking front air inlet which is particularly suitable for bright LED fans like the T.B.Vegas Single series from Enermax. If you illuminate the system properly, the tinted acrylic side window reveals the installed hardware.
