    Phanteks are very well known for their high-end cooling solutions, the Dutch design team created some of the best on the market but today we see the debut of their new ATX case the Enthoo Primo. The case sets accessibility and functionality levels of its own.

    Dutch designers at Phanteks have created some of the best and most efficient coolers on the market today, well known for their unique looks and colour schemes. Today Phanteks debut their new case to the world, the Enthoo Primo - a case that sets a level of it's own and it's really a monster. When you are dealing with a company that specifically design coolers, you know the capability in a case will be above and beyond. The case has clean and elegant style, refined with aluminium front and top panels along with controllable LED lighting. The stealth interior covers the PSU, HDD and cables along with grommets (modular cable cover) for the most clean and sleek looking system.

    For more installation flexibility, the internal HDD cases can be repositioned or removed which can also give unrestricted airflow. A closed HDD panel strengthens the chassis rigidity even when the cages have been removed. Drop-n-Lock brackets is a great feature which means SSD's can be installed on 3 different locations, the brackets are supplied with the case. For easy installation of cooling components the front and top covers can be removed along with dust filters that can be removed cleaned and reinserted with ease. Tidy cable management is always essential, the Enthoo has pre-installed management capabilities with tools behind the motherboard tray that can be fastened and released. LED ON/OFF switch is capable of controlling 4 additional LED fans and LED strips. The case has space for up to 2 PSU's.

    Now we get to the cooling, and this is pretty special! Phanteks have hit the nail on the head with this and it would be expected from a company passionate about thermal solutions. The Enthoo has up to 16 fan mount locations (120mm / 140mm) and comes stocked with 5 of Phanteks's new PH-F140SP premum 140mm fans. The PWM hub will enable PWM functions to 3-pin fans. A max number of 11 fans can be connected to the hub. The thermally isolated PSU location directs heat away from critical components. Extensive watercooling can be supported in the case and support provides 5 different installation locations for thin and thick radiators from single all the way to quad along with clearance for push-pull fan configurations. The case has innovative liquid cooling mounting systems which include:
    • Radiator brackets allows for easy installation (bottom and side).
    • Modular cable cover with pre-drilled holes for mounting reservoirs.
    • Rear reservoir mounting location.
    • Universal pump bracket with vibration dampening function.

    I like it too,...

    Unfortunately I've been looking for a case that can support 9 or more 5.25" bays and this isnt it. I'm starting to think they dont make that type of case anymore,...

    But yeah, like the vertical lower PSU location and additional rear fan space,...

    Why in the world do you need 9+ 5.25" bays? Newegg carries several cases with 9, 10, and 12 5.25" bays.

    9 5.25" bay cases
    10 5.25" bay cases
    12 5.25" bay case

    I've read good things about the Xigmatek Elysium (12 bay case) if you're willing to go with the "Super Tower" form factor, though the front panel aesthetic isn't for everyone.

    Case Labs also sells several highly-customizable all-aluminum enclosures that have "flex bays" in the front. Natively they are 5.25" bays with covers but you can buy accessories to mount 3.5" drives, card readers, radiators, fans, and reservoirs in them. They're higher-end cases than your standard steel/plastic enclosure and cost a bit more as a result.

    I really like this case, except for that big fat annoying panel covering the drive bays and 5.25 bays. Id rather that were completely removed and I could at least remove the whole bottom half of that area, similar to the switch 810 or corsair C70. Then this case would be perfect. Air 540 is still my favorite case so far though.

    I think a lot of people are taking a superficial glance at this case and not looking at the innovative design and water cooling possibilities.

    Gorgeous case. The internal drive faceplate seems a little odd, but I like the side-oriented PSU at the bottom to make room for a 120mm.

    Wow this is an impressive piece.

    At a first glance it makes me think at a watercooled, silent yet powerful system powered by a couple of 520W fanless PSUs.

    Very nice case, nice clean looking interior, not sure on the groove, but I could live with it.

    This case is sweet! I was thinking it was just another $100 case, going by the looks, but when I saw the specs, I took a closer look. For water cooling this might top even the 900D, and the way everything fits together like a Chinese jigsaw puzzle makes more efficient use of space without sacrificing anything. A lot of skull sweat went into this design. Check out the great videos on the Phanteks website; http://www.phanteks.com/#&panel1-1&panel2-1

    Can't wait to see some sweet water cooled rigs in this.

    Wouldn't mind seeing a TPU review of this.

    Looks like it could get pretty cramped inside though.

    I hope there's a no-window option.
