Phanteks Enthoo Pro Full-Tower PC Case

Legit Reviews did not take a look at the Phanteks Enthoo Primo Full-Tower case, but the popularity of Phanteks is growing and we decided that now is the perfect time to see what Phanteks has to offer when it comes to PC cases.  The Enthoo Primo ($239.99 shipped) was Phanteks first entry into the crowded case market, and it caused quite a splash in the higher end Full-Tower case market.  It included nearly everything enthusiasts need in a case with multiple liquid cooling options. Their latest case, the Enthoo Pro is another full tower case, which takes many of the features from the Enthoo Primo at a fraction of the original price.

With so many options in the mid-range PC case market, Phanteks has to stand out to get noticed.  The Enthoo Pro is available in two models, PH-ES614P includes a side panel window, while the PH-ES614PC includes a solid side panel window.  In addition to the difference in the side panels, the PH-ES614P includes a power supply cover, while the other doesn’t.  The PH-ES614P can easily be found online for $99.99 shipped, while the lower model is $10.00 cheaper at $89.99 with free shipping.  Both models are only available in black and both come with a five year warranty.

So what makes the Enthoo Pro special?  For starters, let’s take a look at the cooling options.  If you prefer air cooling, up to ten 120mm fans or seven 140mm fans or a mix of 120mm/140mm and 200mm fans can be installed.  The options don’t stop there, if you utilize liquid cooling, Phanteks has included four different locations for a liquid cooling radiator to be mounted, the larges of which can be up to 420mm!  In order to control all the cooling options, Phanteks includes a six PWM fan hub on the back of the motherboard tray, allowing them all to be controlled by the PWM function on the motherboard!  Also, to help keep the system clean, filters have been installed in all the fan locations.

Multiple cooling options and a PWM hub are not the only features that makes the Enthoo Pro stand out, they have pre-installed cable management Velcro straps behind the motherboard tray, along with a hidden SSD tray. The3.5″ hard drives are hidden from view by a solid hard drive panel.  As we proceed through the review, we’ll discuss other features that might be of interest.  When taking a look at the Phanteks Enthoo Pro, one thing to keep in mind is that this is a full tower case that has a retail price of $99.99!
