Phanteks Announces Enthoo Pro M Acrylic Window Edition

Phanteks is ready with another beautiful chassis in the Enthoo line-up and this time, it is the Enthoo Pro M Acrylic Window Edition chassis. It is a new Enthoo M variant that features a full acrylic side panel window along with a few other modifications and an overall beautiful finish.

The new version features more modifications towards the older models than just a new fancy side panel that gives a great view on the entire system inside the chassis. The Enthoo Pro M Acrylic Window Edition also features the new HDD mounting system, the PWM hub, the innovative radiator bracket, and the various pump mounting locations for even more build options and hardware choices.

The front IO panel has moved from the top of the chassis and down to the side for better optics and it is also something that prevents extra dust and dirt from settling the same way as it does in upwards mounted ports. There are two USB 3.0 ports along with the HD audio connectors and a reset button on the side while the power button still is on the top.

The large interior space allows you to mount full-sized ATX components, including motherboard and PSU. The motherboard area features a large cut-out for easy CPU cooler mounting and backplate access and there are plenty of cable routing options for a beautiful build.

Phanteks used the same type of innovative top radiator bracket to allow easy installation of a radiator and fans alike, just like the Enthoo EVOLV ATX and the EVOLV ITX already have.

There are multple locations for storage drives and additional HDD brackets can be purchased and used. As a basis, the chassis supports two internal 3.5-inch drives and one internal 2.5-inch drive. Additional brackets can be used for up to eight 3.5-incch drives and three 2.5-inch drives for plenty of storage.

Phanteks optimized the chassis for liquid cooling setups, so there is plenty of ventilation space for your fans. You can add up to three 120mm or two 140mm fans at both the top and front and another 120mm or 140mm fan at the rear. The front and top support up to 360mm radiators too.

Included with the chassis are two 140mm fans, one at the front and one at the rear. The included fans are PH-F140SP that come with a speed of 1200 RPM and a noise level of just 19 dB.

I previously mentioned that you could add full sized ATX components, but there are more clearance factors to consider than that. The Enthoo Pro M Acrylic Window Edition chassis has clearance for graphics cards with a length up to 420 mm, CPU coolers with a height up to 194mm and a power supply unit with a length up to 318mm. That should be plenty for most hardware. There’s also a spacious 35mm cable managements space on the back of the chassis.

The new Phanteks Enthoo Pro M Acrylic Window Edition chassis will be available throughout December 2015 for a recommended retail price of €89.90 and £69.99 including VAT. The Enthoo Pro M Acrylic Window edition chassis is also backed by a 5-year limited warranty.

Thermaltake Reveal New Video of Wall Mount PC

Thermaltake has made a lot of cool cases in recent time and we already got to see one funky wall mounted chassis at Computex 2015. Now they’re back with another wall mount PC chassis that was co-designed with ASUS.

Thermaltake presented the new chassis in a video where they don’t just show the final product and some catchy phrases. Instead, the video gives us a more detailed view into how it came to life, from idea to actually building it. You get a glimpse of it all.

The system is using an ASUS Sabertooth motherboard and ASUS STRIX graphics cards. The whole thing is cooled by a dual loop liquid cooling setup that should keep everything running at peek performance. We can easily spot the 420mm and 360mm radiators, three reservoirs, two OCZ Vector 180 SSDs and the PSU is, of course, one of Thermaltake’s own.

Best of all, this isn’t just some fancy and funky concept that the Thermaltake crew came up with, it should become an actual product and it should be available soon. The description reads: “Featuring an ultra minimalistic open-air design that’s ready to handle the extreme, the new Thermaltake open-frame PC coming soon!”

Mayhems Release New Havoc Radiators

Anyone who has watercooled their pc in the last few years will have probably seen the name “Mayhems” knocking around. They are responsible for some of the best looking fluids in the watercooling business and have only been going from strength to strength. Mayhems don’t have much of an advertising strategy, they just let their products do the talking. With some of the biggest modders in the world using nothing but their products you only have to type “water cooled builds” into Google to find Mayhems fluid on show.

Now Mayhems have taken things a step further. They have created 3 sizes of radiators and we have the exclusive pricing for the units, and let me tell you, they are VERY well priced for what you’re getting.

All the radiators have the following spec, as you can see they are quad flow and triple pass so you would certainly mean business.

*         Quad Reflow Chamber
*         Triple Tubed
*         Split fin
*         Medium FPI (9)
*         Anti Piercing Plates
*         Copper Core
*         Brass End Tanks
*         Matt Black Coated
*         2 Port
*         180 Degree Logo
*         Includes a Mayhems Mini Blitz kit (part 2 only)
*         RoHS compliant

Finally, what you have been waiting for, the prices! You won’t find these prices anywhere else yet as Mayhems have given us the exclusive!

First up is the Mayhems Havoc 240 mm Radiator.

  • Dimwensions: 125mm x 63mm x 286mm (Width x Depth x Height
  • Weight : 1.1 kg
  • RRP : 50.00 + vat (£60.00)

Next is the Mayhems Havoc 360 mm Radiator

  • Dimensions: 125mm x 63mm x 410mm (Width x Depth x Height)
  • Weight 1.36 kg
  • RRP : £66.67 + Vat (£80.00)

 

And finally the big daddy the Mayhems Havoc 480 mm Radiator

  • Dimensions: 125mm x 63mm x 520mm (Width x Depth x Height)
  • Weight : 1.75 kgs
  • RRP: £83.33 + VAT (£99.99)

 

All of these radiators will be available directly from Mayhems and will be a limited run for now. The first 60 radiators will come with a newly designed radiator grill from their new venture ‘Mayhems tech’ which will hopefully be bringing some nice products to help you mod your builds.

I am hoping to get a sample of these radiators to put them through their paces but if they are anything like Mayhems fluids they will perform well and look great.

DeepCool Launches Captain Series Liquid CPU Cooler

DeepCool has just launched their newest liquid CPU cooler under its sub-brand Gamer Storm. The innovative and creative new cooler, the Captain, which is a name that I think is very fitting. This has to be one of the most unusual and beautiful approaches to AIO coolers I’ve seen so far. There will be three models with radiator sizes of 120, 240 and 360 mm.

The CPU block is a patented Separated Section design. It divides the pump and cold plate into two blocks and then connects the two by a transparent tube. This allows for a visible water flow that looks somewhat like a tiny nuclear reactor when coupled with the fin design at the top. The base is made from 100% pure copper and the radiators are precision-machined with high density fins (0.2 mm).

The included fans are 120 mm PWM silent fans that operate between 600 and 2200 RPM. The fans also have a unique detachable fan impeller design; this allows you to take the fan blades off to clean or lubricate them without having to remove the entire frame.

The Deepcool Captain comes with mounting kits for both AMD and Intel, including the new Intel LGA2011-V3 socket; it also looks like a fan hub and metal sticker is included.

All three new coolers use anti-evaporation tubes to minimize the loss of pre-filled coolant from the kit.

The new Deepcool Captain liquid CPU cooler should be available October 2014 with a MSRP of $79.99 for the 120 mm, $109.99 for the 240 mm and $139.99 for the 360 mm version.

Thermaltake Debut Their Water 3.0 Ultimate All-In-One CPU Coolers

Thermaltake look set to assert their dominance in the cooling market with the release of the Water 3.0 Ultimate, a new all-in-one liquid cooling system that features a massive 360mm radiator.

Targeted right at the heart of the enthusiast market, the water 3.0 packs enough cooling power to satisfy those who love to overclock their rigs. While many will talk about the benefits of custom loop water cooling, you cannot ignore the plug-and-play friendly nature of an all in one water cooling system, or the fact that they’re incredibly easy to maintain, and often significantly less expensive.

High Performance Waterblock
The high performance copper base plate accelerates the heat conductivity. Additionally, the pre-refilled coolant reduces any stress from liquid replenishment hassle.

High Efficiency Radiator
The specially designed 360 mm large surface radiator not only doubles the cooling surface, but also supports up to 6 x 120 mm fans for additional heat dissipation.

Triple Curve Fans
The triple 120 mm PWM fans provide an instantaneous cooling function. The powerful PWM controlled fan speed is between 1000~2000rpm, reducing the radiator heat from the chassis to maximize cooling off performance.

High Reliability Pump
The high quality and reliable pump enables the maximum amount of water circulation, keeping the copper plate continuously cool. The low evaporation tube effectively decreases the loss of coolant; therefore no refill is either needed or required.

Easy and Simple Installation
The Water 3.0 Series – Water 3.0 Ultimate, Water 3.0 Extreme, Water 3.0 Pro and Water 3.0 Performer feature the latest cooling performance technology from Thermaltake, providing a simple installation system, and a totally maintenance-free operation. The Water 3.0 Series is easy to install and requires the minimum amount of space in the chassis.

We’re really looking forward to seeing how this cooler performs, but going on the reputation of previous Thermaltake coolers, this should be a pretty awesome product. We’ll update you as soon as we have more information on price and release date, although we would expect something north of £100 and a release within the next month or two.

Thank you Thermaltake for providing us with this information.
