Hey guys
I finally decided to build a new system. :peace:
I want to go with an all white build with some black accent this time.
I come from the Phanteks Evolv ATX case which was the easiest case to build in without any issues along the way.
Any opinions on the two cases? Which one is easiest to build in or maybe if one of the two cases has some flaws or maybe that is something i should know? I would gladly appreciate it.
I did a lot of search but i couldn't find any comparison between those two.
Thanks
P.S I do hate cables showing except the sleeved braided ones unless they are perfectly straight or have a nice angle. OCD freak here :roll:
My current setup just to get an idea.

Good to know thanks :)
If money allows get the newer slightly bigger version, the bottom fans on mine are very close to the bottom of the mobo and hinder cabling.
That's my only gripe the bigger one allows a rad at the bottom easier too.

I would like only to install 3 fans on the bottom not a rad and if possible to route the GPU cables through the opening on the bottom of the motherboard tray. Not possible?

I've done 2 builds in the regular dynamic and agree with others the bottom is way too close to the motherboard. Go with the XL version if you can.

if you're coming from a phanteks evolv to either of those cases you might be a little disappointed. Dynamic looks better so that would get my vote as well.

It doesn't have the typical brushed aluminum and fit/quality that most lian li (and the evolv) have -- where they look like they could have been an apple mac pro case in a parallel universe. The dynamic is more of a metal and glass computer aquarium. And the 303 is an ok case.

The other option you can do is get your phanteks wrapped/ wrap it yourself and just flip to a white theme.
