My thoughts

With the case set up from the start with a built in PSU Power splitter and a enough space to accommodate a mini ITX and a micro ATX motherboard building a dual system PC has never been quite this easy. 

One thing that needs to be remembered however is that the PSU in such a dual system better be able to power two full systems under load, and you better have a fan setup that is ready to prevent any thermal build up.

Awesome! This should have been included from the start, especially considering how screwy that dual PSU setup was, placement was...undesirable.

Love Phanteks build quality and attention to detail, but...
maybe offer an option to get rid of the trapezoidal windows their designers
seem to be obsessed with?
It seems like a Monty Python line must be popular.
--Engineer 1: I think we are done, it's ready to ship.
--Engineer 2: 'And now for something completely different! Shapes that don't relate to anything else!'

If they are trying to show the SSD mounts or the pump/reservoir location, it doesn't make sense to show most of the rectangular shape of the mounting plate or the cylinder behind, but then have a conflicting window to view said rectangular items 'well, we didn't want you to see this top corner, so...yep.'

Sorry for the rant, but I bet the radius at the top of the front panel is equal to the radius of the side panel wrapping under, the radius of the side panel top corner has the same centerpoint as the top radius etc etc,
Just like the evolv, the bends in the front panel are the same angle as the side panel front extensions, then the dang PSU cutout window is not the same at all. Drives me nuts.Quote

I dunno, to me the trapezoidal window has been a Phanteks design feature for so long on their bigger cases that it's become an integral part of Phanteks design language.

Take it away and it blends into a sea of black boxes.Quote

I like a signature move, I just wish there was more of it or something that made some logical sense you know? Why is it there/why is it shaped like that/what does it relate to or inform on.Quote
