Enermax makes EATX affordable with its MK50 Makashi enclosure  

EATX cases are often expensive, and there is a clear reason for that. EATX cases need to be large, and that comes with inherent material costs. Enermax has decided that it wants to make the EATX form factor a little more affordable, thanks to their new Makashi MK50 chassis. 

At £69.41 at Amazon UK, Enermax's Makashi MK50 offers front-mounted RGB lights, support for up to two 360mm water cooling radiators and support for up to six storage devices using 4x 2.5-inch drive bays and 2x 2.5/3.5-inch drive bays.

Like most modern cases, the Makashi MK50 features a screw mounted tempered glass side panel and integrated RGB lighting, which can be controlled using a button on the enclosure or using 3rd party software utilities like ASUS Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion 2.0, ASRock Polychrome and MSI Mystic Light. At stock this case ships with a single 120mm fan.  

Our only problem with this case is that it doesn't seem to feature enough space to provide enough airflow at the front of the chassis. This could become a problem with certain setups, but this cannot be confirmed without dedicated testing. 

On the Makashi's front, I/O comes a USB 3.0 ports, dual USB 2.0 ports and HD Audio ports, all of which feature anti-dust rubber plugs. The case also features a built-in PSU shroud and movable 3.5-inch hard drive bays. This case's movable hard drive bays allow this case to support PSUs that are up to 200mm in length.

Affordable means no airflow I guess.

Save $20 on a case just to cook your GPU and waste hundreds. Seems smart... Glad EATX is coming back though. I miss that look.Quote
