Phanteks is a relatively new face to the chassis market. Their first case, the Enthoo Primo, was released less than a year ago. The Primo was very well received by many reviewers and put Phanteks on the market as a new and upcoming chassis designer. Now, Phanteks has released their second case in the Enthoo lineup, the Enthoo Pro. The Enthoo Pro is designed to provide many of the same features the Primo did, such as an outstanding build quality and multiple options for both closed and custom water cooling setups, but do so at a much more affordable price.

The Phanteks Enthoo Pro full-tower computer case boasts compatibility with EATX, ATX, and mATX motherboards, plenty of options for 3.5 and 2.5 inch drives, and a large tinted window combined with a PSU shroud for a clean, attractive build. Cooling wise, the Enthoo Pro features mounts for up to ten case fans ranging from 120mm to 200mm in size, four different locations for radiators, and and a mount for an internal reservoir.

    I’m surprised there is not more about the PWM controlled 3-pin fan hub. It is a unique and very good way to have automatic control of up to 11 fan allowing them to idle at slow speed and ramp up as system workload increases. Makes for a very quiet system that can easily handle stress testing without overheating. ;)

      The case can only mount up to 10 fans and the hub has connectors for six. Sadly the explanation Phanteks provided for the controller was quite poor.

  2. JackNaylorPE

    You can, at least with the Primo, use two fans on each of the 6 connectors except for the first one which is req’d to be single because it needs a single fan to provide feedback of fan speed.

    From the Phanteks Primo web page (FAQ Tab)

    “How to use the PWN fan hub?
    PWM hub will enable PWM function to 3-pin fans. Fan 1 can only be connected to one fan and cannot be split. Fan 2 – Fan 6 can be split to multiple fans. Total of 11 fans can be connected to the PWM hub. All PWM functions will be controlled by fan 1. ”

    AFAIK, the only thing different between the 2 is the cable supplying 12v power if needed is a SATA Power cable instead or Molex used on the Primo. i expect to be doing a Pro build next weekend for one of the neighborhood boys.

    Can this case fit a 360mm radiator on the top without removing the 5,25 bays ?

    1. David Shields

      You can’t remove the 5.25 bays, but you can fit a 360mm or 420mm radiator in the top regardless.
