Phanteks Releases Sleek Enthoo Primo Full-Tower ATX Case

By - Source: Phanteks | B 13 comments

Phanteks has introduced its all-new Enthoo Primo full-tower enclosure.

A Dutch manufacturer, Phanteks, has introduced its new flagship enclosure. The enclosure, known as the Enthoo Primo, is a full-tower enclosure with room for many large components. It features a sleek design, and just like its size, has a rather sizable price tag. Fortunately, it also comes with a respectable five-year warranty.

The enclosure has room for up to E-ATX size motherboards down to Micro-ATX boards. On the storage front, it can house up to six 5.25" optical drives as well as another six 2.5" or 3.5" drives. These drives fit in two adjustable or removable cages. Beyond that, there is room for a grand total of two power supplies in separate compartments, as well as room for CPU coolers up to 207 mm tall, graphics cards up to 390 mm long, and there are a total of 16 different fan mounting locations. Standard with the case are two front LED fans, one top fan, one rear fan, and one bottom fan, all 140 mm. The case also has a built-in PWM hub, which allows all of the fans in the enclosure to be controlled off a single PWM signal. The case also has a total of five different mounting locations for both thin and thick style water cooling radiators.

Regarding connectivity, the case features the standard kit: two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and a pair of HD audio connectors.

The case will be available through select retail channels starting in September, with MSRP ranging from £199.99 to €229.99, which translates to roughly $305.

    I want this case but I will wait for the reviews to come in and see how it does.

    Remember seeing something about the Enthoo somewhere else already, but I did not pay much attention to it.

    Now, I gotta say, it is a very sleek design, nicely done. Aside from the aesthetics, the PSU separation done on the Enthoo was a smart design choice in a case that size; I think more case manufactures should be doing it this way, IMO anyway. Though I don't care for windowed cases, the PSU layout really helps to clean up the showcase view and probably helps greatly with cable routing.

    I really like the look of asymmetric computer cases, to an extent, of course. I do like how this case looks.

    This looks very nice. I love the design. Especially the clean lines with the mesh paneling.

    it's nice and everything, but I'll stick with my 900D from corsair.

    Id stick w/ the 900D if I had it already too..... wouldn't toss that kind of investment :0

    Height was my only beef with the 900D .... still trying to decide how much radiator I need for a 4770k and 2-way SLI. The 900D allows bigger Rads.

    900D - 25.6" x 9.9" x 27.2"
    Enthoo - 25.6 x 9.8 x 23.6

    Great looking case. Sleek design. But $300+ is a but to expensive for me.

    BTW- IS the 3rd picture the case with the door open? Are the USB ports in the edge of the door?
