Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX Alum/Steel Tower Computer Case with Window Review
With a beautifully carved aluminium design, the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX is a great gaming case with lots of focus on water cooling flexibility. Awarded the Best Case Award of 2015 from Hardware Canucks, it’s a premium mid-tower chassis that is solely based on the EVOLV design. This case is an ATX version to the popular and original EVOLV launched by this company earlier.
Although this is an ATX version to the originally introduced EVOLV, but the list of new features in this ATX version of the case is long and leaves the buyer impressed. It comes in 3 colours viz. black, anthracite grey and galaxy silver. This best ATX case comes in a really impressive designer black box at the back of which a lot of information regarding the product is enlisted. It comes with a cardboard box that includes all the accessories and the manual of the product that comes complimentary with the product.
This is stealthy looking small ATX case which is made up of aluminium metal. Its material makes it really thick and hence, it weighs approximately 10 kg. The left side of the panel comes with a big window that occupies most of the space, and the right aspect of the panel is same to left one, except for the fact that there is no window there. Beneath the case, you notice that two rubber feet are given to keep the case lifted from the surface about 20 mm.
At the rear of the PC tower, you can notice that the layout set is standard. In the top left corner is an I/O shield cutout and in the right one, there is a 140 mm exhaust fan situated. Under this, there is space provided for the seven expansion slots and a grilled area. The grilling area can be utilised to mount a water cooling reservoir. And even below that, there is the power supply which comes with a removable filter at the base. In the front side of the case, there is one port given for the audio jack, 2 ports for the USB 2.0 and 2 ports for the USB 3.0. When the dust filter in the front is removed, we see the twin 140 mm fans.
To open the side panel, you don’t have to deal with any screws or thumbscrews. It can merely be opened up by pulling the panel at the front as the panel is hinged at the rear. By default, there are already 2 SSD mounts found in the chassis. Phanteks has also provided the three optional HDD brackets so that if you intend to install more drives, then you can easily proceed with your wishes.
