Looking to enhance the design and attract serious gamers and enthusiasts alike, the Ostrog has had a makeover. This time around the looks are much more aggressive and plenty of additional features have been added to the fold. Today’s review will be on the Ostrog GT, which is at the upper end of the ECA3280 series of cases. So, let’s have an up close look at this new chassis offering from Enermax and find out if it is a serious player in the crowded mid-tower case market.
A couple of years have passed since the first Hoplite case was released by Enermax, which by and large was a well received product. Fast forward to today and we have a remake called the Hoplite ST. There isn’t a whole lot of similarities between this case and the original Hoplite, other than the name of course. As with any product refresh, a good deal of features have been added and updated to meet more current standards. We all know how competitive the sub $100 chassis market is, so let’s dive in to the Enermax Hoplite ST (ECA3261-W) and find out if it’s a solid competitor.

Since Fractal Design has jumped into the component market, they have done a great job of bringing us affordable cases that look great. Today we look at a refinement of their venerable Define XL, the Define XL R2. Did they make the right changes to make an already solid case a top contender? Let’s find out together, shall we?
Previously we looked at a massive (1500 W) Enermax unit, today’s unit is a rather more reasonable 650 W. It also has something interesting, flat cables. Not just flat cables for some connectors, but flat cables for all the connectors! Even the ATX24P connector. Everything! That’s a rather interesting idea if you ask me. Beyond that we also get 80+ Bronze and a <$100 price tag, putting this unit straight into what is arguably the toughest price bracket.
