Phanteks Drops ATX-Sized Enthoo Evolve, Pro M, Special Editions At Computex

Phanteks launched its upsized Enthoo Evolve ATX at Computex, featuring many of the exterior elements of its original Evolve and the interior features of previous full-sized Phanteks predecessors.

Available in Anthracite Grey or black, a 3mm-thick aluminum shell covers a sheet metal interior with two lower drive trays (2.5"/3.5" compatible), two SSD trays behind the motherboard, and up to five modular drives at the front of the motherboard tray, which are also both 2.5" and 3.5" compatible. Three brackets are included in the standard $180 package.

Phanteks also responded to reader and customer demand with a scaled-down version of its Enthoo Pro. Named the Enthoo Pro M, it doesn't include any modular brackets, but it does support them. Two lower drive trays and two additional SSD trays behind the motherboard, plus an external bay with internal drive brackets, are included. The reduced-accessory package allow a similarly scaled-down price of $100 for the standard package.

The firm announced two special edition color combinations for its original Enthoo Evolve: white with black interior ($80) and black with red interior ($70). Phanteks' upcoming ATX power splitter enables the use of a single power supply with two motherboards in its Mini XL case. We're still waiting on the price.

    "Original Enthoo Evolv"? Pictured is the ITX version which came out after the mATX version.

    The mATX version is really underrated but I love mine.

    Two computers in one case with a single power supply. A novel idea for a niche market that i'm not sure exists...

    I built 3 systems in the Evolv, one for me and 2 for customers. All 3 of them were of shoddy build quality, the one I built my system in was the worst of the bunch, came with gouges in the aluminum panels, the top radiator mounting point is made of 2 separate sheets of paper thin steel that are laid over eachother and secured only by rivets on the corners. This created a horrible low end vibration sound, and and time the machine was touched it would rattle like a snake in the desert. the badges were not adhered to the PSU bay and were already drooping when I opened the boxes. The windows were cloudy, and some of the areas in the window had what looked like "glazing" or thicker areas of acrylic as if it were cured on an incline. I have no interest in purchasing another phanteks product, even though I enjoy their cpu coolers and fans, I got burned for a lot of money on their cases.

    I've built in 7 of their cases over the past two years - 6 pros and 1 luxe. only thing i ever had negative about them was a small scratch in the acrylic panel of hte one pro... due to the packing materials in the box breaking... haven't used an evolv yet... deff something to look into before risking it for a build though.

    Huge proponent of their fans and coolers as well though.

    When will the Enthoo Pro M be available? EVOLV ATX is a great case but a little too expensive to me... Pro M meets all my needs to build a good water cooling rig, if it has a wider window...

    don't believe they have formally announced it.
