Enermax Chakra ATX Case with 25cm Fan
July 27, 2006

Computer cases used to be just a place for your hardware. They have evolved into the vehicle for enthusiasts to customize their system with cooling, lighting, and style. The case that houses your hardware serves a much greater purpose than in the past. Cases are being innovated every year to maximize functionality. No more crawling underneath a desk to plug in a peripheral; it is now accessed from the front or top of the case.


Enermax USA sent over one of their newest computer cases, the Chakra. As the promotional image above shows, the Chakra is available in three colors, and we will be taking a look at the all black model. I have had my eye on this case since I first saw it and Enermax USA just happened to send us an e-mail asking for us to review it; already we are wondering how this Chakra read our minds.

From Wikipedia: "In Hinduism and in some related Asian cultures, a chakra is thought to be a nexus of metaphysical and/or biophysical energy residing in the human body."

Now that we have an understanding of the Chakra on that level, let's look at some published data from the Enermax USA website...

    5x5.25"
    5x3.5" [four hidden]

Features:

World's first case with external SATA port in front
Massively curved meshed front panel with 2 brushed aluminum columns
2 CD-ROM flip covers integrated
On-Top interface for the easiest access (e-SATA, 2 x USB, Audio I/O)
Tool-free drive bays and removable HDD cage
12cm fan slots in front and rear for silent cooling (optional)

Packaging:

The Chakra arrived in a standard Enermax cardboard box with the specifications and features on either side. I laughed at the little logo of the person doing some yoga on the front of the package. On the specifications side I noticed the model that I got had the 25cm fan, but did not include any 12cm fans for the front of rear like the other two models include. On the feature's side some areas of interest are CD-ROM flip covers, an eSATA port, and the 25cm monster fan with controllable bidirectional cooling.
