Enermax Ostrog ECA3250-BW Series Midi Chassis Review

Rating: 7.5.

The case we are looking at today is part of the ECA3250 series of cases by Enermax. There are 3 models in this series; one in black, one in White/Black (predominantly White) and the one we are looking at in Black/White (predominantly Black).

Enermax are mostly known as a chassis manufacturer, but they do also produce power supplies, CPU coolers, fans and other peripherals. The Enermax Ostrog ECA3250-BW is  heralded as the ‘Fortress for your hardware', according to the company website.

They say the design is ‘plain and timeless' – we will take a look at this later in the review.

Valve engineer warns against Steam Deck SSD mod

Officially, Steam Deck only supports M.2 2230 SSDs, but modders have found a way to use 2242 form factor SSDs inside the portable console. This increases the variety of SSDs you can mount on the console and the storage, as 2242 SSDs tend to come with more. However, modding the console to support such SSDs will shorten its lifespan, according to a Valve engineer.
