    Default Enermax Fulmo ST review

    Today i take a look at Enermax Fulmo ST mid tower case,few weeks back Enermax EU. held fans test competition on facebook and i was one of the lucky guys to recive Enermax Fulmo ST for review.Emermax is well known company so i wouldnt waste time to introduce them so i will jump straight to reviev.
    The chassis comes in a standard box with a image of the chassis on the front and the full specifications listed on the side .
    [IMG][/IMG]
    [IMG][/IMG]



    In the box I found the handy Enermax velcro strips, these are great for cable management, as well as some cable ties and the usual assortment of screws and standoffs. There was also an internal case speaker and two 3pin fan to molex adaptors.
    [IMG][/IMG]


    Looking at the main body of the case with the windowed side panel heavily tinted to give us a subtle peak at the interior such motherboard and all other cool hardvare that you might put in . The panel is held in place with a pair of thumb screws for easy access.. This particular case is black, but it also comes available in gun-metal grey and has a two blue LED fans at the front.
    [IMG][/IMG]

    The right side panel features the exact same shape as the left, but it doesn’t feature the window panel and this raised section should allow plenty of extra space for hiding cables behind the motherboard. The entire panel sticks with the colour theme of the case, which is once again,black.
    [IMG][/IMG]

    Here we have the front of the Fulmo ST,It has the Enermax logo which is centred towards the bottom. The Fulmo ST has 3 x 5.25 removable inserts which is required to install devices such as DVD-RW drives, Blu-Ray drives and other 5.25” devices such as fan controllers. 3 x 5.25″ drive bay covers are removable from the chassis interior. The mesh design lines up nicely with the top panel and creates the effect of a continuous mesh across the top and down the front of the chassis.
    [IMG][/IMG]

    The front panel is equipped with a power and reset switches that follow the same angular design as the rest of the chassis, four USB ports (2 x USB 2.0 & 2 x USB 3.0) as well as HD audio connections for headphones and microphone.
    [IMG][/IMG]

    The rear of the case has 8+1PCI slotseach with ventilated, a bottom mounted PSU space with the holes to secure the PSU, rubber grommets for water cooling and a rear 120mm exhaust fan, which comes pre-installed with the Fulmo ST.
    [IMG][/IMG]

    The underside of the chassis feature 4 hard plastic feet with foam stick on covers that will provide some grip on hard surfaces, but more importantly some ground clearance for the bottom air intakes. Each is fitted with a mesh air filter, you’ll also notice 4 thumbscrews near the middle of the base, this is to hold in place the SSD bracket on the chassis interior.
    [IMG][/IMG]

    Taking a closer look at the innards, we can see the main compartment of the case. It looks pretty spacious but the first thing I noticed was the lack of rubber grommets on the cable management holes. It is the first thing I look to in cases these days, they do have rolled edges to prevent your cables from snagging., the brass stand-offs in the Fulmo ST have come pre-installed although there are more included in the accessories box. There is room for 8 x 2.5” HDD’s; a lot of space for a large amount of storage,the HDD bays are tool-less and slide in and out via a runner mechanism. Each of the HDD trays has four screw holes that can support a 120mm internal fan and the top bay can be quickly removed thanks to a simple clip-in mechanism. We also have a large cut out in the motherboard tray, mainly for installation of CPU coolers without taking motherboard out of the case.
    [IMG][/IMG]


    Also SSD bracket can be fitted on lower HDD cage simply using four thum screws that held bracket in its original position.
    [IMG][/IMG]


    With the top and front panels removed you can see that the top fan or radiator mount is raised well above the chassis internals, this should minimise conflicts with cpu cooler ,memory modules and motherboard connections. The front of the chassis has mounting points for two 120/140mm fans ,there are two cable rooting holes at each side of the fan mounts to allow for routing of their cables.
    [IMG][/IMG]
    [IMG][/IMG]



    At the back we see there is 20mm of cable management space,and there are a few cable tie loops at key points to help you tide cables.
    [IMG][/IMG]
    [IMG][/IMG]
    For final part i installed hardware wich was easy and not dificult due to small size of the case, on the contrary it is very fast and surprisingly easy to install water cooling setup and big HD7970 video card,one thing that i must point out is quality of color is very good.(better than my 900D case)



    Hardware used in this build:
    CPU – AMD FX8150
    Motherboard – ASUS Crosshair V formula-z
    Memory – Corsair Dominator GT 8Gb 1866Mhz
    Graphics –Sapphire HD7970
    Storage – Western Digital 1Tb green,OCZ Agility2 120Gb
    PSU – Corsair TX750V2
    [IMG][/IMG]
    [IMG][/IMG]


    Fulmo ST is absolutely packed with features it has exceeded my expectations for lower price case, there are a few minor issues I have with it but those are just things like there is no cable manegmant gromets on motherboard tray and I/O cables are not black so all in all Fulmo ST is case to use if you are on budget build or space issue ,it's great performing case with lot of options and lot of inside space for easy and fast build.

    Not bad for your first review, but you do have areas that need some work, also your photos show to much back ground, they need to be tightly cropped.

    Try to use a table close to an empty whit wall, and make sure your table top is also white. For taking photos a white case, or PSU, you will have to change both your back ground and table top colors. Your photos are nice and bright and clear, but like I mentioned earlier, you need to things in the back ground out of the photos, and tightly crop them. The review was fine for a forum review, but if you wanted it published, there's just not enough of information, but your off to a good start, if you lived in the US I'd give you a chance reviewing.

    I am glad you like it guys ,yes i know there is still room for improvement on picture,information as well as on text side,i know i cant expect everyone to like it on review side or case side thats what makes us different and critics are always a good thing ,Stan i am glad you even considered of giving me a chance of reviewing and that gives me boost to do it even better next time,all in all i am just another hardware addict who likes to play with it.
