Small-form-factor PC builders with an eye for color coordination can rejoice. The inexplicably-named Steelwing microATX chassis from Enermax increases the number of choices aluminum-and-tempered-glass fetishists can select from when building a compact gaming rig. Steelwing takes flight in two color combinations: black with red anodized accents or silver with green trim. The accent color is mirrored in the LED-illuminated 120-mm fan installed in the front of the case.
The Steelwing can grudgingly accomodate a 120mm radiator in the front for liquid cooling, but 3.5" drive capacity will be reduced from two to one. In addition, the case offers a bracket for a single 2.5" drive. Graphics cards up to 11" (or 280mm) long will find refuge within the Steelwing. The Steelwing requires an SFX power supply; the upshot of this requirement is up to 3.2" (80mm) of clearance for CPU coolers. No external drive bays are present in the Steelwing, so buyers will need to have some flash drives ready. The Steelwing's external dimensions measure 15.25" x 6.9" x 11.8" (or 38.7cm x 17.6cm x 30cm). Wolfram Alpha will tell you that all adds up to a volume of 20.4L.
Cable management-averse builders can rejoice in the fact that only one of the side panels is made from tempered glass. The snake's nest of wiring can be hidden from critical eyes on the case side made from anodized aluminum stamped with the Enermax logo.
