Phanteks today launches three new products: the new Eclipse P300A case, D120 Distribution Plate, and the Evolv Sound Mini speakers.

ECLIPSE P300A
Small in size and big on features, the Phanteks Eclipse P300A brings high airflow performance in a compact ATX chassis. The P300A features the Ultra-Fine Performance mesh delivering the best performance while keeping dust from entering the system. With support for standard-sized hardware in a compact size, installation is intuitive and convenient. The Eclipse P300A delivers quality and high airflow performance with exceptional value.
D120 Distribution Plate
The D120, a second distribution plate to the Glacier series is a universal distribution plate designed to perfectly fit in any chassis with a rear 120 mm fan position. The D120 sports an acrylic top, mirror-finished backplate, and integrated Digital-RGB lighting to highlight the entire build. It features dedicated inlet and outlet ports for the CPU, making water-loop planning easier while the air vents provide airflow across the motherboard's critical components. The D120 delivers an effortless building experience for all users.
Evolv Sound Mini
Designed to perfectly match the award-winning Evolv X chassis, the Sound Mini speakers will complement your Evolv setup. The compact Evolv Sound Mini delivers a stereo sound and packs a punch for everyday casual music listening to gaming.

I had the original version of the P300 it was very easy to build in and looked pretty good, they went on to add different coloured top and bottom vents at the front, airflow was ok ish. Build quality is very good.
It got replaced when I got my NZXT H500i which is still the easiest case I have built in to this day.

Now that Cnc'ed manifolds are "off the shelf" and any idiot can buy them now, they're not cool anymore

The original P300 P400 was a pizza oven. Steve from GN bashed them so hard about airflow and it seems they have listened.

I really am liking this p300a, small size and can support atx mb. with good airflow, my next case for sure unless something better comes but I doubt that.

They came out with the P400A several months ago and GN has tested it. They gave it an award for best airflow in 2019

I really like the look of the new 600A. I was thinking of getting a Luxe2 but the only thing that is holding me back is no support for multiple 420MM rads.

well im talking about the original P400 being a pizza oven that got bashed by Steve at GN that Phanteks then improved with the P400A
Yes I know, my point was more that they made an update to that case back in early fall 2019.

Phanteks let you buy the P400 mesh front panel separate so I don't see why not they wouldn't sell the P300 mesh separate.

Just bought a regular P300, it runs pretty cool @ stock anyway. It has a lot of little annoyances though. I don't like the non-standard front panel, would rather it go to the motherboard.
I'd prefer it have some 2.5" inserts for the 3.5 bays instead of a behind the motherboard mount. The glass side panel looks nice but is kinda hard to handle. It has nowhere to put PSU cables really besides the HDD bays if you aren't using a modular PSU. It's a bit of a pain to get to the USB headers and audio connections due to the bottom of the case being walled off and the management holes are RIGHT UP on the bottom of the board.

One other thing I didn't notice right away, the top panel connections for audio and usb do not have a very good fit and finish. It's hard to put cables in there, know when they are in all the way, and it feels kinda wobbly.

What it does well is keep a simple build of a full sized ATX board with an m.2 drive cool and look reasonable for a slight price premium over pure budget cases. If you want 2nd and 3rd SATA drives or more than one other expansion card I'd avoid it. I also would not use it without a modular PSU. Not a good box for someone who messes with their build occasionally.

yea I don't like the lack of a physical reset button and two more usb 3.1 ports would be nice
