With all the new motherboards, CPUs, graphics cards, storage units and memory products coming out, it goes without saying that new PC cases would debut as well, and Enermax definitely acted on this ever present need.CES 2011 was full of all sorts of hardware, from small chips to large platforms and PC chassis.
Enermax' newest desktop enclosure has even been not only detailed, but listed online, although only Japan has, so far, given it a price.
The product in question is the Hoplite tower enclosure, an all-black, steel-wrought model whose price is currently set at the equivalent of $154.
There are four exposed 5.25-inch bays, used for ODDs (optical disk drives) or other accessories, like fan controllers or 2.5-inch drive cages.
There are also four hidden and two hot-swappable 3.5-inch bays (at the bottom), plus up to 4 2.5-inch bays, depending on model.
There is even an optional 2.5/3.5-inch dock on top, as well as an I/O panel, also on top, with optional USB 3.0, two USB 2.0 ports, eSATA and audio.
Furthermore, Enermax threw in a 120mm fan at the rear, a bottom PSU holder with a removable dust filter and a front 120mm Vegas LED fan with light control.
What's more, three watercooling holes are already drilled and all features are packed inside a tower form factor, measuring s 495 (D) x 202 (W) x 503 (H) mm.
Other specifications include a tool-free installation for all drives, be they ODDs, HDDs or SSDs, seven expansion slots and support for ATX and mATX platforms.
The only model already listed, and previously said to be priced at $154 is the ECA3222 (USB 3.0 and HDD dock available), but the other Hoplites shouldn't take long in showing up.
Until they do, any and all available information can be found on the official product page, located here.
