Inside the Enermax Staray ECA3175-BL
Hardware Secrets Bronze Award

Both panels are attached to the chassis using black thumbscrews, which is great to see on an entry-level product. The motherboard tray has a huge hole for you to access the backplate of the CPU cooler without having to remove the motherboard from the case. This case doesn’t allow you to route cables behind the motherboard tray, but the tray comes with several clips for you to fasten cables using cable ties.

In Figure 12, we get another overall look inside the case. Expansion cards are fastened using a metallic tool-less mechanism. The Enermax Staray ECA3175-BL supports video cards up to 9.9” (252 mm) long and CPU coolers up to 6.5” (166 mm) tall.

The power supply is installed at the bottom of the case. It can be installed with either its bottom fan facing up or facing down, so you can decide if you want the fan of your power supply pulling air from inside the case or from outside of it. There is no air filter for the power supply fan.
