Enermax iVektor Mid-Tower ATX Computer Case Review

Enermax has long been an enthusiast brand associated with some of the best computer power supplies made in the industry. Over the last couple of years it has also developed a very strong following in computer case arena with DIYers. Today we look at the iVektor case designed by Enermax and it looks to be a strong contender for your next build.

Who among you isn't familiar with the Enermax brand? The company, known the world over for its impressive line of power supplies (a long time favorite here at [H]ard|OCP), also features a full line of coolers and computer cases, the latter of which is what brings us here today, as we review its iVektor case.

Most of you will remember the last Enermax case evaluation we did here featured the Coenus. The reason that is important is because the inside of the case we are looking at today, the Enermax iVektor, is almost identical to the Coenus. Where things get really interesting is the exterior of the iVektor. Enermax put a special "Soft-Touch Coating" on this chassis that the company claims is able to absorb vibrations, noise, and prevent fingerprints. The iVektor comes in three colors: jet black, passion red, and snow-white but only the white and black versions come with the soft touch coating. Enough with the formalities, let's get down to business and see how this case holds up when the rubber (coating) meet the road.

Enermax has once again skipped the flashy packaging, instead opting for a simple black printed outline of the case on the plain cardboard packaging. The side of the box also features basic product information and a list of specifications. The case itself is wrapped in a plastic bag and held in place by thick styrofoam inserts.

The box arrived in good shape. Other than a few minor wear marks, the packaging showed no signs of damage. Once again, the product packaging did its job well by protecting the case and contents from damage during shipping.
