Phanteks Enthoo Evolv Review

Interior:  Rear of Motherboard

It's not very often that we give the rear of motherboard area a page all to itself, but then it's not very often there's so much going on back here that we need to.  The first thing we notice is the very generous CPU cut out, and the well placed grommeted management holes, especially the pair up at the top which will be perfect for routing the 8pin CPU and fan cables through.  Down towards the bottom right there's a pair of mounts for 2.5" drives, with the one on the left having a Drop-N-Lock SSD bracket included.  If you mount your SSDs with the sockets facing down the large aperture underneath will mean that should you need to 90 degree power or Data cables could be used.

The Enthoo Evolve also comes with three pre installed Hoop-N-Loop (Velcro to you and me) cable management devices.  If you're as OC3D over cable management as we are you're going to have a ball with these, and even if you're not, you're going to have to try hard to make a mess of things back here, which is just as well as the hard wired front I/O, power/reset and pre installed PWM fan header means that from the get go there's a lot of cable taming to be done.

The other things that will make cable management easier are the generous 25mm of space on tap, combined with a nice large hidden trough at the bottom into which any unwanted lengths can be stashed after they have left what looks like it might be quite a cramped PSU mount
