Phanteks Enthoo Pro M Case Review

Up Close: Side Rear and Base

Phanteks Enthoo Pro M Review

Up Close:  Side Rear and Base

The clear window on the M is set flush into the side panel.  A look at the tabbed fixings on the reverse side shows us that should we choose to it would be a simple enough job to remove it in favour of something else.

Round the back we find a large extract fan mount with slotted locations for either the included 140mm fan or a 120mm of your choosing.  Below this there's seven vented PCI covers, which is unusually scant given that this case can accept E-ATX Motherboards.  Below this there's the PSU cut out, with the space off to the side indicating that there should be a decent amount of space behind the motherboard.

Wrestling the case over to have a look at the base we find a slide out filter for the PSU.  Thankfully Phanteks have resisted the urge to include fan mounts on the base of the case.  The case itself stands on four good sized feet, which are capped with rectangles on dense foam to aid in the reduction of vibration.

Allow me to say that this case is better than the "Define S" better airflow due to the open mesh at the front, still let's people use an optical disk drive or a fan controller as wellQuote

IMO but it's almost to the point where ODD slots should just dieQuote

You might be right, however I bought one internal ODD for my new rig anyway, you'll never know when those things might come in handy and comparing the 15Euro price tag for a internal one against the 40Euro one of an external one, I don't think that aesthetics will get massively crippled on specific chassis like the enthoos, which are what I would call "workstation grade" apart from watercooling friendly.Quote

I have watched a review of this case, After watching the review i just found myself saying this case is to flimsy (Side covers) so that's why it's kinda off my list now for New Cases.

But i do understand that to get it into this price range they did have to cut some corners tho.Quote
