Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Full-Tower Case Review

Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Water Cooling Specifications

Because the Phanteks Enthoo Luxe carries on so many water cooling features I have decided to make one section dedicated solemnly to explain compatibility. You can check the water cooling table at the end of this section for a quick glance, however we suggest you read this page entirely if you are planning on modding or working on a complex water cooling loop within the Phanteks Enthoo Luxe.


The place were you want to get your biggest radiator is at the top. There is support for a 360 mm and a 420 mm radiator with height clearance of up to 38 mm until it meets the top plastic cover. If you are planning on doing a push/pull set up I would suggest you use the top portion only for fans and the bottom to mount your radiator and the rest of the fans. There is also mounting holes for a 200 mm fan and you could probably drill yourself holes for another one,


My biggest gripe with the Enthoo Luxe is that at the front there is only support for a 240 mm radiator. now you could easily remove the optical drive cages which are secured with screws and make yourself support for up to a 360 mm radiator at the front. The front mounting holes for a 280 mm fans are not elongated and this really limits compatibility with radiators if you are not willing to use a drill. With a 240 mm radiator installed at the bottom you still have 63.5 mm of clearance, without it you can get up to 152.4 mm of clearance for a very thick radiator, or simply install your pump here. This does mean that you will be left without 3.5″ drive cages if you are mounting a radiator on the front or the bottom.

    – 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.

  3. Addison

    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?
