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.

GeForce GTX 980 Ti Is Ready, but We’ll Have to Wait a Little

AMD is getting ready to launch their new 300 series very soon and Nvidia isn’t just standing by on the sidelines to watch, they want to be prepared. According to the latest leaks coming through Sweclockers, who have an impressive track record of being right on the spot with Nvidia rumours, Nvidia already has their new GeForce GTX 980 Ti ready, they just don’t want to release it yet.

The timeframe for the GTX 980 Ti is still set to the end of Q2 or Q3 2015, but with the option to switch it up and release it earlier in case AMD’s new flagship GPUs will kick their butts. I know that many people are waiting for the card, based on comments on our previous articles, but this is also good news. It will give Nvidia time to optimise and tweak the card, give board-partners more time to create better custom PCB and cooler solutions, but also to improve on it in case AMD’s 300 series cards will surpass the leaked performance figures.

The sad side of the news is however that it looks pretty much like the Titan X with half the memory. The GTX 980 Ti will feature the full version of the GM200 core with 3072 CUDA cores, 192 texture units and a 384-bit memory interface for the 6GB VRAM. Where the Titan X is running in at the $999 price tag, the GTX 980 Ti will most likely cost around $699.
