Enermax Ostrog Lite joins the compact-ATX party

Enermax has expanded its Ostrog line of budget-friendly cases with the Ostrog Lite, a steel mid-tower case designed to swallow up ATX motherboards. This enclosure packs features usually reserved for more expensive chassis, like a power supply shroud and both top and bottom magnetic dust filters.

Enermax says the Ostrog Lite was designed to accomodate power supplies as long as 7" (or 18 cm), graphics cards up to 15.3" (39 cm) in length, and CPU coolers as tall as 5.9" (15cm). The case comes with three 120-mm fans installed, and it can hold two such spinners in the front, two more in the top, and one in the back. Liquid-cooling enthusiast also have room for 120-mm radiators. A 92-mm fan fits in the power supply shroud in exchange for giving up a 3.5" drive mount.

Digital pack rats will enjoy mounting locations for two 2.5" drives, three 3.5" drives, and a pair of external-facing 5.25" bays. The case also includes an adapter to cosset a 3.5" drive in one of the 5.25" external bays. To top it off, two of the 3.5" bays can be converted to hold 2.5" drives.

Power and reset buttons are mounted on the top panel, along with audio jacks, a pair of USB 2.0 ports, and a single USB 3.0 port. The front panel is made of plastic with a "hairline" brushed metal finish in one of two available grayscale colors. Buyers can keep an eye on all that hardware through a tinted acrylic side panel. The chassis' external dimensions ring in at 17.3" x 7.6" x 18.1" (44 cm x 19.4 cm x 46 cm). Enermax says the Ostrog Lite should be available now.

    “Compact ATX”?

    This is “Compact ATX”: [url<]http://www.coolermaster.com/case/mini-tower/elite-361/[/url<] That is a typical mid-tower... if they're putting the PSU below or above the mobo like that, which is a waste of space, it doesn't qualify a compact ATX case IMHO.

      I have to agree. There’s nothing small or compact about this case, it’s a standard mid-tower.

      I came to rant about that as well.

      We need more Elite 361s.

      Cheers! 😛

    I am a digital hoarder, not a digital pack rat.

      Aren’t they called “Strogg”? Or are you talking about a particular unit name/type?
