Phanteks teased their brand new Enthoo Primo case a while back just before Computex and now it is finally ready for release. This is Phanteks’ first venture into the PC chassis market and they are hoping to set the bar very high with the Enthoo Primo. Phanteks have opted for clean styling with an aluminium front panel and controllable LED lighting.
Internally you can move around the hard drive bays or even totally remove them. Phanteks are using “drop n lock” brackets to allow SSDs to be installed in 3 different locations. Both the front and top panels are removable to allow easier installation of components and these also have removable dust filters. Cable management is provided by an extensive management area behind the motherboard tray. There is an LED ON/OFF switch for controlling up to four LED fans or strips in addition to the pre-installed one. Impressively the case has space for two PSUs.
In terms of cooling Phanteks equip five of their newly released PH-F140SP fans. There is space for up to 16 fans and a PWM fan control hub to control up to 11 fans. The case has also been designed with water cooling in mind and has space for 5 different radiator placements.
