At the current price bracket Phanteks Enthoo Pro almost feels out of place, in a good way. Little has been sacrificed to make this case stand out, but it does, even next to much more expensive competitors.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great value for money
For the price bracket it's in, the Phanteks Enthoo PRO is equipped with a lot of features that most cases in this price bracket do not have. It’s a large, sturdy, modular case that can easily fit a 420mm radiator and a custom water cooling loop.
Pro Included fan controller
Back of the case has a 3-pin fan controller with room for up to 6 fans, which will allow you to control the installed fans directly from your operating system.
Pro Extensive water cooling support
One of the things that this case does not lack is room for cooling. It can have up to 10 fans installed at once, bottom and front can have a radiator of up to 240mm. At the top there’s enough space for a 420mm radiator. The case also comes with a bracket for a liquid cooling reservoir, that can be installed onto the 3.5” drive bay.
Pro Easy to build in
There are a few options for customizing the look of the internal layout. You can remove the hard drive bays and push the dividing wall back to create a more open space. There’s also a bracket that will help you hide your power supply and the cable mess that comes with it. You probably won’t have any clearance issues installing a large gpu, since there’s 347mm of room even without removal of the 3.5” drive bay. The back of the case is covered with velcro straps for cable management, yet still has plenty of spots for zip ties.
Con Limited storage drive room in the back
If you were to remove the 3.5” and the 5.25” bays to make more room in the front, you’d be left with only one 2.5” drive bracket on the back. While there are two slots for drives, the case only comes with one bracket.
Con Poor quality packaging
A lot of buyer complaints are about the case arriving broken. Some of the most common areas for breaking are the front panel attachment points. Another issue seems to be the included accessory box breaking open in the case and scratching up the paint and the windows from inside the case during travel. Buying the case in person might save you some trouble.
