The Front Panel
The front panel of the Enermax Staray ECA3175-BL is practically identical to the one used on the ECA3170 models. The only difference is the addition of one USB 3.0 port. The reviewed case has four external 5.25” bays and one external 3.5” bay, all using meshed covers with air filters.
The case comes with one 120 mm fan on its front panel, using a standard peripheral power connector. Unfortunately, the manufacturer doesn’t publish the specifications for this fan, which has blue LEDs. The case comes with a button near the USB 3.0 port for you to turn off these LEDs. There is an air filter for this fan on the front panel.
The case comes with one USB 2.0 port, one USB 3.0 port and the traditional audio jacks at the middle of the front panel. The USB 3.0 port uses an internal USB 3.0 connector. As mentioned, there is a button for turning off the LEDs of the front fan.
