Enermax Spinerex full tower


Enermax Spinerex


Today we’ve got a full tower chassis from Enermax called the Spinerex. They’re a fairly well respected company, so I expect great things from this case. As a full tower, I’ll be looking to ensure that it can contain a hearty helping of computing goodness, as well as the normal things like build quality, materials used and cleverness of design.

Let’s get right into it, after you cast your eyes down this lovely set of features and specifications.


  • SpineRex – King-size Tower
    Majestic Full Tower with much space for high-performance components and with a first-class cooling system.
  • Spectacular Two-colour Vegas Light Show
    Leading Enermax LED technology creates unique effects and unmatched intensity. Two integrated 12cm Vegas front fans and one 25cm side LED fan. Two colours (blue/red) and up to 13 LED modes (only front fans) to choose from. One light switch on the side and two buttons behind the front columns to change light effects and colours.
  • Advanced Cooling System
    Up to 6 fans: Powerful 25cm monster side fan and two 12cm front fans pre-installed. Two 12/14cm top fans and one 12cm rear fan can be installed optionally.
  • Customised Cooling
    Manual speed control knob to adjust the speed of the built-in 25cm monster side fan seamlessly (600~900 RPM).
  • High-speed Data Transfer
    Up to 5 Gb/sec. with easy accessible USB 3.0 interface on the top of the case. Additionally three USB 2.0 ports, one eSATA interface and HD/AC’97 audio ports.
  • Modular & Flexible HDD Installation
    Two modular 4-in-3 HDD cages to accommodate up to 8 HDD offer quick access and easy installation. The HDD cages can be mounted flexibly. Each occupies three 5.25“ drive bays.
  • Quick & Comfortable System Assembling
    Flip-open front columns and smart-release bay covers, rails for quick ODD and HDD installation, mainboard tray with cutout for comfortable CPU cooler mounting, thumb screws for add-on cards and side panels.
  • No more tangled cables
    Cut-outs and clips for a comfortable and clean cable routing.
  • Bottom mounted PSU
    Easier cable routing and optimized case cooling thanks to the stack effect. The rising warm air can be dissipated by the help of the top case fans and adjustable air vents. The case supports both PSU mounting orientations with fan downwards and upwards. Easy cleanable dust filter at the bottom and vibration-damping rubber stands.
  • High-end Graphics Power
    Support of most current high-end graphics cards with up to 310mm length or up to 337mm length without using corresponding HDD bays.
  • Passive Cooling
    Robust steel mesh front and steel mesh side window with easy cleanable dust filters provide unrestricted air circulation and an excellent passive cooling. Adjustable air vents on the top side.
  • Water Cooling
    Four openings with rubber grommets at the backside for liquid cooling systems.
  • Top Device Tray
    To store HDD enclosures, MP3/MP4 players or other devices and PC accessories.
