Enermax Fulmo GT Review

  Enermax Fulmo GT

 

Introduction

I arrived home from work just before Christmas to be greeted by a “sorry we could not deliver your package” leaflet, informing me said package had been taken to the local post office where I could pick it up.  I wasn’t actually expecting anything through the post, but my good lady was, (a small pressie for me by all accounts) and so she quickly announced she would take a quick trip to the village post office to pick up said little package.  Some 30 minutes later she re appeared hot and bothered and using the sort of words you would normally expect to hear from a sailors parrot. Turns out it wasn’t the expected “little package” after all, but the Fulmo GT which had arrived courtesy of Enermax. Apparently it took her and the lady at the post office by a good 5 minutes to heft the box out of the post office and into the boot of the car.

So as you’ve probably gathered it’s a big case.  Big enough to take on the largest twin CPU motherboards, including the mighty SR-2 and as many of the largest and most immense GPUs that money can buy.  The “GT” in the name does not imply that this is a “Grand tourer”, and as such the perfect case to take for a long drive across Europe, rather that it is a “Giant Tower”.  Measuring a staggering 640mm in height and 674mm deep there’s enough room in this case for a party.  So if you’ve just won the lottery and have splurged on the best and biggest hardware money can buy, and are looking for somewhere big enough to put it, or perhaps if you are simply looking for a case with plenty of room for air or water-cooling options then perhaps the Fulmo GT might be worth a look.
