The new Volcanus case from Enermax will reach the market with a very attractive suggested price of USD 80. Let’s see if you should consider this product.

The overall look of the Volcanus is really neat, with the front panel inspired by a flame that continues to both side panels. There are two Volcanus models: ECA3180-B, which is the model we reviewed, where this flame is black, and ECA3180-BR, where this flame is red. The left-side panel supports two 120 or 140 mm fans, which don’t come with the product. Unfortunately the meshes for these fans don’t have air filters.

The front panel of the Enermax Volcanus can be seen in Figure 3. This case has five external 5.25” bays  and no external 3.5” bays. Of course you can buy an adapter to convert one of the 5.25” bays into an external 3.5” bay if you really need this feature. As you can see in Figure 3, the bay covers are meshed and have air filters attached to them. It is important to note, however, that only the top-most bay comes completely open; the other bays have a metal cover behind the plastic cover, which must be broken out if you want to improve the case internal airflow.

The highlight of this case is the 140 mm fan present on the front panel, called the “VEGAS.” Thru a button labeled “light,” available on the front panel, you can select between several patterns and two colors (red or blue), or you can completely turn off the lights. We made a short video showing this fan working. On the Volcanus ECA3180-BR the fan has only the red lights. No technical information about this fan is available. This fan has an air filter in front of it.
