CES 2016: Phanteks have been creating some of the best chassis money can buy over the last few years and it looks like that is a trend that is set to continue, as they demonstrate their latest and greatest products here in Las Vegas. This first one is still a prototype, but Phanteks say we can expect the final one by Computex this year.  IT comes with room for an ATX motherboard, as well as a mini-ITX motherboard, much like the Enthoo Primo did with Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX boards. Obviously, this means it’s freaking huge, and with room for high-end water cooling in the front, back, top and bottom it’s obviously aimed at the enthusiast user.

In the base, there’s a separate compartment for the PSU and additional water cooling hardware, as well as a some lovely built-in RGB lighting that goes around much of the chassis.

The use of an SFX PSU is no longer required either, thanks to the PSU splitting hardware that allows you to power dual systems from a single PSU, freeing up more room in the chassis for hardware.

The external panels are thick cut aluminium, giving it a fantastic premium look and feel. Normally aluminium is lightweight, but with this much of it, the chassis is extremely heavy.

We can’t wait to see this chassis once it is completed and ready for consumers!

The new Enthoo Primo also supports dual systems and once again the SFX PSU mount from the old model is gone, allowing you room for a GPU mount using a riser card, giving you a much more visually appealing build.

The Mini XL dual system looks great too, featuring the same sleek and high-end built quality and component support of any other Phanteks chassis we’ve ever seen.

The power splitter card is certainly a cool bit of kit, and as you can imagine, it’s pretty darn handy for these dual-system chassis designs. Just remember, if you’re running two high-end systems, you’ll need a pretty beefy PSU. With built-in load sharing, the unit is far from a dummy splitter, ensuring each system is getting the power it needs.

The power combo is the same idea, albeit in reverse. Not only can it bridge two high-end PSUs, something that can be a vital tool for those doing extreme system builds, or enthusiast/competitive overclocking, you can bridge two lower grade PSUs  to get the power you need, giving you a lot of unique and interesting options for your build.

Just look at this monster gaming system, powered by two 750W EVGA PSUs and using the power combo! Pretty cool, right?
