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.

    – 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. 😉

    Can I fit a 60mm Rad at the front of the Enthoo Luxe? I was a bit confused with your water cooling specs.

    If not a 60mm what thickness of rad can I fit?

    1. Julian Duque

      You can install as thick as you want of a radiator as long as you don’t install a 240mm radiator or a pump at the bottom near the drive cages. If you install a 280 mm radiator you might need to look into the spacing between holes as they are not elongated although the one from the luxe is standard.

    But can I install a massive 240 radiator with push-pull fans at the bottom of the case and still use one of the hard drive cages?
