Although roughly 5 years ago we waited months at a time for a new PC case to hit the market things have changed quite a bit and so today new PC cases are launched almost on a daily basis. Of course this is a very good thing since not only does increased competition results in lower prices but also because there are more cases for someone to choose from. Enermax also joined the PC case race quite a few years ago but up until today their highly respected name in the market was a direct result of their excellent power supplies. Today we are taking a look at one of their latest midi tower PC cases the Hoplite.
Enermax Technology Corporation was founded in Taiwan in 1990 and today is one of the leading manufacturers of PC components (power supplies, PC cases, cooling fans, keyboards, HDD enclosures and other peripherals). Since 2000 the head quarter is located in Taoyuan, Taiwan. Six subsidiaries and numerous affiliates around the world provide an excellent network for ODM/OEM and retail business. Enermax has subsidiaries in Germany, France, Italy, USA, Japan and China. Worldwide, over 600 employees work for Enermax. Since 2004, the Enermax Technology Corporation is listed at the Taiwanese stock exchange. Detailed technical knowledge and foresight played an essential role for the quick development of the Enermax brand. Prior to the establishment of their own business, the Enermax’ founders served in executive positions in IT industry. They have been well acquainted with the demands of ambitious, hardware enthusiastic customers and took the opportunity offered by the lack of premium-quality, high-performance and durable PC components at that time. Within a very short period of time, the Enermax brand became popular around the world. Enermax possesses two own factories and thereby guarantees product’s high quality and long lifetime. Own research and development departments assure steady advancement and innovative design of products. Over the last decades, their innovations and technologies continuously defined new standards for the market.
The Hoplite is named after a legendary ancient Greek soldier battalion and so as a Greek you can imagine how excited i was when it arrived on my doorstep. However that also means that i had great expectations from it and i am really happy to say that for most part they were covered since Enermax gave the unit quite a few nice features including two 3.5' hot-swap drive bays, two SSD trays, top hot-swap HDD dock, USB 3.0 ports and a forward 120mm Vegas LED fan capable of producing up to 11 light modes. Let's take a close look and see what the Hoplite PC Case by Enermax has to offer.
