Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX Tower Chassis
Aug 14,2015 0 Comments
Unless you live under a rock and have never seen what Phanteks has been delivering when it comes to chassis design, you would know that their cases are always slightly ahead of the curve, they are very modular, and all of their cases are designed with water cooling the components in mind. We have also see many iterations of what they can come up with, and the Enthoo series of cases has been one that has never failed to impress us. The only thing that has stopped some buyers from looking to Phanteks for a chassis is that most of what they offer is truly huge, and if you were looking for compact and space savings, they really had nothing to offer.
Well, that is until now. With seemingly everyone making the move to build something much smaller than what most gamers and enthusiast are used to, Phanteks had been missing out on a lot of potential sales. Of course, there was the Enthoo Evolv ATX, but even that was a mid-tower design, and while it can house a Mini-ITX motherboard, that chassis just isn’t small enough to cut it for many builders out there. So, how exactly is Phanteks solving this hole in their lineup? They are offering their first attempt at building something with smaller form factor builds in mind, specifically for Mini-ITX users.
The chassis we are going to be looking at today is indeed the smallest chassis that Phanteks has attempted, and the Enthoo Evolv ITX that we have now loses nothing that we are used to seeing in Phanteks cases. They did eliminate ODD bays, and even with a much smaller foot print, this ITX chassis is still very well equipped. There is still plenty of modularity to make the chassis suit your specific needs, option parts for water cooling delivered in the box, and they even came up with a cool slide out rack for the top of the chassis to simplify radiator or optional fan mounting. So, while this chassis may be smaller in stature, it can still run with its bigger brothers and deliver a chassis so well appointed, it may take you a few trips around the chassis to find them all.
