    Phanteks graduated from being behind some seriously great coolers and fans, to cases. The company kicked off its enthusiast PC case lineup with the Enthoo Primo. This ATX full-tower easily rivals contemporaries from Corsair, Lian Li, and the likes, in terms of quality, materials, and features. What sets the Enthoo Primo apart from other cases is its large (≥10 cm) clearance between the motherboard tray and the panel behind it. This gives you a large amount of room to route cables, coolant tubes, and even tuck away some parts of your liquid-cooling loop, such as pumps and reservoirs.

    The Enthoo Primo from Phanteks features eight expansion slot bays, letting you use dual-slot graphics cards on the bottommost slot on your motherboard, six 3.5-inch drive trays spread across two cages, each tray can hold two 9.5 mm-thick 2.5-inch drives. The case offers five 5.25-inch bays that hide behind a door in the front-panel. Cooling system includes two 120 mm front intakes, a 120 mm rear exhaust, and provision for additional fans on the top (3x 120 mm), side-panel, and bottom. A 6-channel voltage-based fan-controller comes included. Phanteks stated that the price could range between 199 to 249 EUR, when the case hits markets in July.

    We also managed to score a video presentation of the Enthoo Primo. Watch it after the break.

    their inside looks pretty good, but the exterior looks pretty standard
    i love the space on the back of motherboard tray, you can hide tons of cables there

    wow amazing case with interesting ideas; you can actually fit anything you want with no restriction like some retarded "unnecesary" big case like the cosmos 2..

    i like the back a lot; hell you can "hide" a water pump or whatever back there along with cables !!


    Like your aircoolers, epic case phanteks +1 :toast:

    You are right, they took up the space with a dual rad at the bottom.

    The PSU sits on its side in the back of the case, and there for is hidden pretty neat idea. I am really liking this case, and may end up using it for a 3-4 way SLI right next year when Maxwell hits. :pimp:

    Indeed, but as Eternal was leading to, there isn't one in there. ;)

    Yeah, in one of the pictures its not in there, but on that back pic you also do not see the GPU power cords that on the front shot are present there. Might be taken during different time of the build. Very interested to see how it turns out quality wise, as it could have good features but fit and finish is crap.

    Huh, that's actually quite cool. It even looks good! Expensive though, which might be justified but well beyond what I'm willing to pay for a case.

    For those who won't watch the video, they put the psu on its side behind the motherboard try.

    This actually seems well-thought out and solidly built. Plus it's a nice platform for modding...
    Phanteks shot it out of the park with this one, if you ask me.

    Very clever design, but you wouldn't know from the bad pictures.

    Look at the video. PSU goes in vertical in the section behind the case, leaving the lower area open for a radiator.

    Very interesting.

    For those of you who can't even seem to understand a video for a source of information...

    They Have Turned The PSU On To Its Side And Tucked It into the back corner of the case. :nutkick:
