Phanteks Enthoo Pro M Review

The Build

Instructions come in the form of a fold out 2xA4 sheet and aren't exactly on the generous side.  They don't for example mention the pump mount or tell you how to remove the lower 3.5" drives or the 5.25" drive.  Still, if you're man card is in date this shouldn't be a problem for you.  The bag-o-screws that comes with the M might not look much either, but there's everything in there you're going to need including some long screws for rad mounting.

With most of the kit in se can see that although this is quite a small case there's plenty of room inside to work.  This of course is mainly due to the absence of damn great banks of 3.5" drive cages that are so often seen cluttering up the front of a case.  As usual we've popped in our old faithful EN8800GT to give a good comparison, but the M will actually take anything up to 420mm.  De bear in mind though that if you're going to be putting big rads in the front this max length will diminish.  There's also a neat little gap between the motherboard and the PSU cover that makes it a doddle to bring though any cables that require fixing here.

As we suspected, plenty of room and generous cable management options make for an easy to accomplish tidy cable job.  As the area to the rear of the PSU is covered, it's a great place to stash all the lengths you don't want.

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
