I love the red color interior of this case. Case is full steel construction. The side panels feel little flimsy though. The windowed side panel is also very prone to scratches. Lucky Phanteks support was awesome and sent me a new acrylic window free of charge!.
it can take 240mm liquid CPU cooling, and it's red inside.
Very nice looking. Good custom options. Watercooling was a bit more difficult then you would think. Top slide out bracket is in theory a nice touch but is very tight, hard to get in and out. Cable management is excellent. More room then you would think.
It is really fun to have this case to work with. I would recommend this case if you want cable management, lots of space and options for water cooling, removable socket to better show off your GPU and after all it is still not that expensive. I am not dissapointed even though I wanted to buy the Manta from NZXT. The price wouldn't drop so for basicly the same specs but 50% cheaper I love the Phanteks product.
Not enough good words for this case. Lovely to work in, especially for the first mini itx build. The removable liquid cooling bracket up top works very well, and the tray to the right of the case housing the SSD does an excellent job in filling the right side of the case. The included 200mm fan (a high quality fan from Phanteks) retails at 20 bucks, so i saw no reason to replace it as it delivers air to all the components in the case. The rubber-dampened thumb screws for the side panels as well as the red-coloured top dust vents are very nice touches.
Beautiful case, seems solid, has great cable management and was easy to work with. Love it!
Probably the best ITX case I could ask for. It was a pleasure to build in. Some screws were a pain since the threads were sort of bad.
I honestly have to give some extra cred here to Phanteks for their EVOLV ITX case. It may not be exactly a "mini" ITX case, but it is extremely versatile. The radiator mounting rack was so easy to use and the back of the case has plenty of space to hide cables, even making my hastily done cable management job yesterday look passable.
It was a pleasure to work in and I'd suggest it for anyone who is looking for a smaller Desktop, but without sacraficing all the additional features of a regular ATX case.
Built my first PC in this guy. It was fun.
- Cable management
- Supports water-cooling (I didn't, but it supports it!)
- Little big for ITX, but does the job well nevertheless
