Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Tempered Glass Edition Chassis Review


Features of this chassis, really set itself apart from competitors. When we think of case management the thing that comes to mind is cleanliness and space. The layout of the inside is one of the best us at Technology X have seen. Phanteks luxe temperedThe motherboard bracket supports ATX and extended ATX motherboards in addition to a cut out in the cable management area that creates room for after market cooling devices. A PSU cover runs along the bottom of the case and canvases the full size PSU slot. The space inside this cover has enough room for another fan or a radiator for liquid cooling. Two quick mount 2.5″ brackets are handy for showing off your storage drives as well as making quick switches if necessary.Luxe temperedOne 140 mm fan is mounted in the case although one more can be purchased for the top to make two 140 mm fans. The cable management in the side is quite clean and methodical. This cleanliness is produced by having velcro lined all along the square motherboard perimeter. tempered luxeNine large rubber grommets  line the perimeter as well to keep cable management at an all time high. The six, quick release 3.5″ bays on the inside of the chassis can be removed and the screws taken out to make room for liquid cooling reservoir.   It is important to note the RGB light emitting diodes that line either side in an L shape have ten colours that can be put in static, breathing or transitioning. To control this feature use the right most button in the I/O panel. One second holds change between the ten colors in static light position.phanteks luxe tempered A two second press engages the breathing mode on the already selected colour slowly going from black to full brightness, then back again. The last feature on the RGB panel is transitioning which can be engaged by holding the button for three seconds. To power down the case lights all you have to do is hold down the button for four seconds.

Filling this case up with was an easy task given all the space provided. phanteks luxe tempered The motherboard fit in snugly with enough space for all the cables to reach the rubber grommets easily. Attaching the CPU cooler was also made easy due to the CPU cut out in the back of the motherboard mount.phanteks luxe tempered Our 2.5″ fit well into the quick release bracket and cords were run through the cable management area very easily.
