• 25.08.14 | Smart Solutions for an Efficient Data Management

    One week ago, Enermax has launched the Mighty Charger series with two card readers for 3.5” and 5.25” bays. They have been the first models of a new line of data management solutions from Enermax. Even if cloud computing has been a major trend to handle the huge amount of data, many people prefer to keep physical drives for security reasons. The average user owns two and more data storage devices. Smart solutions are necessary to manage and link them. Many PC systems and chassis are not designed to accommodate numerous hard disk or solid state drives. But you can easily expand the capability of your system by integrating mobile racks. Enermax now introduces the EMR series, a complete line of 11 mobile racks for different mounting slots (3.5”, 5.25” & PCI slots) and disk formats (2.5” & 3.5” HDDs/SSDs).

    Sturdy Structure & Durable Design
    Enermax’ mobile racks are designed for durable operation. The manufacturer applies quality materials and relies on patented non-scratch SATA connectors which offer an extraordinary high number of 50,000 plugging and unplugging cycles. To protect sensitive data carriers from unauthorized access, Enermax has equipped the hard drive caddies with a security key lock. And if you want to setup a raid backup system, the EMK3203 with two 2.5” disk slots is the best choice for you.

    Utmost Usability & Flexibility
    The wide range of different models helps users to select the right product according to the individual system requirements. With smart solutions and convenient designs, Enermax increases the usability and flexibility of the particular data management system. Steel SATA clips avoid accidental disconnections and the hot-swap system allows for changing disks without shutting down the PC. The manufacturer provides overall four models for 5.25” bays and six models for 3.5” bays. In case that these bays are occupied already, the EMK3105 can be installed at the PCI extension slot, so that you can include an additional 2.5” HDD or SSD into your system.

  • 22.08.14 | Upgrade Your Desktop PC to a Multimedia Station

    Considering the huge variety of mobile devices (tablets, smartphones, cameras, MP3 players etc.) and the growing volumes of data (photos, videos, music etc.), the PC has become a platform which connects different devices and formats. Thereofore, it is annoying if the initial configuration of your computer does not fulfill all requirements: No memory card slots, an insufficient number or hard-to-reach USB ports complicate a regular and frequent data transfer. Luckily, there are ways to upgrade your PC without investing a lot of time and money. As an experienced case manufacturer, Enermax knows about the problems and wishes of his customers. With the Mighty Charger series, the company presents a solution to upgrade a desktop PC to a modern multimedia station. The two new multifunctional front panels will enter the European market in coming week.

    Mighty Charger 5.25“ (ECR501): Convenient 2-in-1 Solution for External and Internal Data Storage Devices
    The ECR501 multifunctional front panel is designed for 5.25” bays. As many systems of today get along with just one DVD or Bluray drive, the other 5.25” mounting slots remain vacant. Therefore, the ECR501 from Enermax can be integrated into most PC chassis. And apart from the external interfaces and memory card slots on the front, it provides another smart feature: The new model offers three internal mounting bays for one 3.5” drive and two 2.5” disks (HDD/SSD). Considering the fact that many older cases lack of internal 2.5” bays, you can upgrade your system with the ECR501 in two respects: It not only enhances the options for the external data transfer, but it also creates new space to extend the system’s data volume.

    Various Options for Memory Cards and External Data Carriers
    ECR501 comes with one eSATA port and overall seven USB interfaces: One USB socket complies with the latest high-speed USB 3.0 standard achieving a data transfer rate of up to 5 Gbit/s. Another one is designed as charging station for smartphones, tablets etc. The so-called “Super Speed Charger” port can be used to recharge the batteries of mobile devices with up to 2.4A. It complies with the latest USB Battery Charging v1.2 specification. The integrated card reader of the Mighty Charger 5.25” supports all current memory card formats with slots for MS, CF, SD, Extreme Digital, Micro-SD and M2 cards.
    The Mighty Charger 5.25“ (ECR501) costs 31.90 Euro (MSRP incl. VAT) and will be available for sale next week.

    Mighty Charger 3.5“ (ECR301): Many Options for External Data Transfer
    The ECR301 is a well-thought multifunctional front panel for 3.5” bays. Due to the more compact size, the 3.5” model offers less USB and memory card slots than the 5.25” version. But for most desktop PC, the Mighty Charger 3.5” (ECR301) is a perfectly good solution. The product provides three USB 2.0, one USB 3.0 and – like the ECR501 – one „Super Speed Charger“ port for mobile devices. With five slots for MS, CF, SD, Micro-SD and M2 memory cards, the ECR301 supports almost all common formats.

    The Mighty Charger 3.5” (ECR301) costs 29.90 Euro (MSRP incl. VAT) and will be available for sale next week as well.

  • 03.06.14 | For Professional System Building: Thorex & Ostrog.Q

    With the Ostrog and the Vostok Advanced series, Enermax already carries two successful chassis lines which are designed for professional system building: The manufacturer follows an elegant, clean design and relies on a sturdy and user-friendly structure. Now, Enermax introduces Ostrog.Q and Thorex, two new compact midi towers which support standard ATX mainboards as well as the smaller micro-ATX form factor models.

    Ostrog.Q: Functional Structure with High Cooling Capacity
    In comparison with the remaining models of the Ostrog series, the new Ostrog.Q chassis is more compact. To overcome the space limitation, Enermax has adjusted the cooling concept of the new case: A large mesh front with two 12cm fan mounting slots increases the fresh air supply. Filters behind the mesh protect the system from dust. Ostrog.Q comes with one 12cm rear fan pre-installed which dissipates the warm air from the system. Apart from that, the chassis accommodates two side and one top fan optionally.

    Screwless mounting systems facilitate and speed up the installation of 5.25" optical disk drives and 3.5" hard disk drives. The hard disk bay is composed from two sections, one for 3.5" and one for 2.5" HDDs or SSDs. The top 2.5" cage can be removed in order to integrate longer graphics cards or improve the air circulation inside the system. In this particular case, Enermax provides another slot for one 2.5" disk at the bottom of the bottom cage. Punched side panels allow for a comfortable hidden cable routing behind the mainboard tray and the installation of tall tower coolers with max. 174mm of heights.

    Thorex: Compact Case with Prominent Front Design
    , the second newcomer tower from Enermax, is designed for basic gaming rigs. While the internal structure and functionality of this case is almost identically equal to the Ostrog.Q, the style of the two models varies significantly. Thorex has a clear-cut shape with a striking front air inlet which is particularly suitable for bright LED fans like the T.B.Vegas Single series from Enermax. If you illuminate the system properly, the tinted acrylic side window reveals the installed hardware.

    Prices & Availability
    Ostrog.Q (model: ECA3351B-BT(U3)) and Thorex (model: ECA3321A-BT(2U3)) are available on sales soon. MSRP incl. VAT: 39.90 Euro for the Ostrog.Q and 41.90 Euro for the Thorex.
