Phanteks Enthoo Pro Review

Last summer Phanteks won our hearts with the Enthoo Primo aluminium case – which claimed a ‘Must Have’ award despite a price tag of £199.99. This success led to a huge amount of anticipation for the upcoming Phanteks Enthoo Pro as we were promised a case that carried over the core thinking behind the Primo, but at half the price.

Obviously that huge price drop must involve compromises so let’s see whether Phantek’s second case is a success or wide of the target.

    My only concern with the PWM hub would be connecting six fans to a single PWM connection on the motherboard. You could easily exceed the maximum wattage capability of a single PWM connection.

    The motherboard only supplies PWM signal to Phanteks PWM controlled 3-pin fan hub and PSU supplies the power. The master fan on header 1 sends rpm singal to motherboard.

    Those of us with Enthoo Primo hubs love them and can’t wait to buy them as an accessory.

    Can this case fit a 360mm radiator without removing the 5,25 bays ?

    no, because the fans are to be mounted inside the case with the radiator it will be too thick and will interfere with the top 5.25 bay. A good alternative is the enthoo luxe which allows for the fans to be mounted in the top shroud allowing a 45mm rad to be installed and not mess with the top 5.25 bay
