Phanteks Enthoo Pro M Review

Cooling Options

Any tower type CPU cooler up to a height of 194 mm will fit just fine into the M, certainly the NZXT one we use to help you guys gauge space between cases appears almost lost in there.

Also looking a bit lost is the 240mm rad we use.  We think these pictures show quite well just how much room there is in the front of this case.  As mentioned on the last page, there's a good 100mm of clearance on offer here.

A pull out 360/280mm rad mount on a £60 case??? Surely not.  Not bad Phanteks, not bad at all.  It certainly makes mounting things up here a whole lot easier that's for sure, and with the multiple slots you'll be able to position your rad just where you want it.

With the drawer pushed all the way back in we can see that there's more than ample clearance between it and the RAM.  In fact there's a just under 70mm of clearance which should be enough for even the tallest RAM heatsinks.  As you can see in the images below there's absolutely stacks of room, and as it's unlikely that there's going to be anything on you mobo higher than 70mm in this area provided your rad clears your RAM you should be good al the way down as far as your CPU socket edge.  Just remember to leave yourself enough room to fit the water block and plumb everything in.

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
