Full Disclosure: The product sample used in this article has been provided by Phanteks.

A few months ago Phanteks released the Enthoo Pro, a case that Benchmark Reviews concluded as being a game changer in the case market. Prior to the Enthoo Pro, Phanteks had already released a case that was praised by many enthusiasts as the most water cooler friendly case released in 2013, the Enthoo Primo.. With the release of the Enthoo Pro, Phanteks had a price gap to fill in it’s Enthoo line-up, leading to the release of the Enthoo Luxe, the case which I will be reviewing today.

Like many European companies, Phanteks is more concerned with the build quality of it’s products than with anything else. Starting from their fans all the way to their cases, I can almost guarantee that any of their products will last you a long time, but if my advice is not enough to convince you then the 5 year warranty they include in all of their products probably will.

Surprisingly the Enthoo Luxe is Phantek’s third case. What is no surprise is that it is packed with features as seen below. If are looking for a more detailed set of specifications for water-cooling we recommend that you jump ahead to the dedicated water-cooling section of this review.

    Uhm…

    “Cons:
    – Shares the same chassis as the Enthoo Pro
    – Power Supply cover does not have rubber grommets for tubing”

    1: I´d like to see any other cases out there, at that price range that even have a PSU cover… (other than the NZXT H440 which doesn´t have nearly as many radiator mounting options)
    2: The interior build of the Pro proved itself to be extremely efficient and catered for a lot of enthusiast water coolers needs…. so why NOT use the same layout???

    Corsair has the same interior layout in the 750D, 760T and the 730T… haven´t heard any complaints there…

    NO “Cons” mentioned were of any value if one takes the price and the total build quality into consideration. There are other cases out thee that cost way more that are not even close to the Phanteks Enthoo Luxe. ;)

    Peace
