Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Case Exterior Details
A first look at the Phanteks Enthoo Luxe reveals that without the top and front panels, this is the same chassis as the Enthoo Pro, at least on the exterior. But let’s take a closer look at what really sets both of them apart.
The front Input / Output panel can be found behind a stealth cover right on top of the 5.25″ bays. It features two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, a headphone and a microphone jack, a reset switch, and a button that allows you to select from 10 different colors of the included LEDs. All of these are clearly labeled for your convenience.
Unlike the Enthoo Pro, the Phanteks Enthoo Luxe is adorned by a sand blasted finish which screams quality. This makes the Enthoo Luxe a bit more shiny, and unlike the aluminum texture found on the Pro, it isn’t a fingerprint magnet making it easier to clean. This sand blasted finish can only be found on the front and top panel; the side panels as well as the back all have a more glossy finish.
Adorned by an LED, the power switch is far away from the reset switch, which is great as I always find myself screaming after I accidentally press the reset switch when I am in a hurry to turn off my system. The LED changes color along with the rest of the included lights, this small details really show why Phanteks is quickly becoming a leading case manufacturer.
Removing the top filter the mounting holes for three 120 mm, three 140 mm, and one 200 mm fans are revealed. All the mounting holes are elongated for better radiator compatibility. If you really wanted to you could make yourself more mounting holes for one 200 mm fan as there is enough width clearance. We also find cable routing holes along both sides of the fan mounts.
