Enermax Staray ECA3171 / ECA3170

Part 1: Four Gaming Enclosures Under $50
By

Enermax sent its ECA3171-BR-AP, armed with three fans, where the hyphenated parts of the name indicate color and number of fans. A member of the ECA3170 family, this upscale version includes three red fans rather than the single blue fan of the more common ECA3170-BL. Because a limited-time discount forced the triple-fan version down to the single-fan version’s price, we tested the case in both configurations.

Front-panel control buttons are found on each side of a single 3.5” external bay, while front-panel ports and a fan lighting control are located in a bay panel beneath it.

The rear panel for the ECA3170 family has two grommeted holes for the pass-through of liquid-cooling hoses, and is able to hold a single exhaust fan up to 120 mm.
