The Phanteks Evolv Shift is one of the coolest cases we have seen so far this year. Offering a nice mix of materials, it allows you to build a potent liquid-cooled system while maintaining an extremely small footprint. GPUs of up to 350 mm in length are supported, too!

I have to say this is amazing. I have wished for some real case innovation for years and this looks like the first one that could actually be it! Looks very good so far. May even be my next case.

Absolutely disappointed. I've been waiting for this case since January and this is what I get? Flimsy plastic, idiotic sata connector and SFX PSU, and some really moronic airflow choices. Shift X is no better, just bigger and even more limited as you can't use 120 mm aio at the bottom (GPU) and 240 (CPU) on the side at the same time. Basically if you don't custom loop it's going to look quite stupid. Oh and that dual tone glass... My advice to phanteks - take a look at VR1 from Jonsbo and learn, just shut up and learn!

I like it. I would definitely consider it if I was building SFF. I had my days of mini-ITX building, now the novelty of small size has worn off, it's just a series of compromises. I like Phanteks' cases, waiting on one that's perfect (for me). The Evolv ATX was almost there, but I want better air flow and more room for fat radiators. The Elite is a great case, but priced too high...

decent case but overall build quality does not match with the asking price one bit. Should be less than $100 if they wanted to be competitive in the mini ITX casing market. Would give it a 7.5/10 IMO
