I would like to thank Phanteks for supplying the review sample.
When Phanteks introduced the original Evolv Shift, it made quite the headlines. Now, over 3 years later, Phanteks has introduced the Evolv Shift 2, which comes with a lot of subtle but functional changes while keeping the design fundamentals of the original.
The Phanteks Evolv Shift 2 comes in two color options: "satin black" and "anthracite gray," which are, as the names imply, black and a dark gray. On top of that, you may pick between a glass or cloth side panel variant, the latter of which is the Evolv Shift 2 Air. We got the version with glass, but Phanteks was kind enough to also send us some cloth panels so that you can see how that setup performs.
