Let’s do a quick IQ test like question. If Silver Power is to Tagan, then LEPAtek is to? The Answer is Enermax. This is their low end product range and today I’m reviewing one of their cases, the LP 301. It’s got some red styling and an interesting side panel; even has dust filters at the front.
Budget doesn’t necessarily mean bad, so let’s see if this represents good value, or poor production.Features

Last year Thermaltake introduced an iconic looking chassis that while it wasn’t the greatest in terms of cooling or practicality, the original Level 10 was certainly a head turner; even if it was just to look at the £500+ price tag.
Now though Thermaltake have worked on the design, creating this new version known as the GT. It’s not quite as pretty and has some lumpty plastic parts, but it’s certainly still interesting. Let’s see how it turns out.FeaturesPerformance cooling made quiet: one top 200mm exhaust fan, one front 200mm intake fan, one side 200mm intake fan and one rear 140mm exhaust fan.
