Phanteks Enthoo Evolv MATX Case Review

Introduction and Technical Specification

Phanteks Enthoo Evolv Review


We wouldn't normally begin a review by telling you how much something costs, but with the Phanteks Enthoo Elvolv falling a just a Starbar short of £80 we think it's important that you have the price clear in your mind before you make your way through the rest of the review.

So, a steel chassis case with all Aluminium exterior, that looks fantastic without being clad in a plastic chassis mask, water cooling capable and with a build quality and solidity of construction that would make the Thomas Telford blush, the Enthoo Evolve looks to be a bit of a corker.  Measuring in at just 230x450x400 (WxHxD), it's demure stature does mean it's limited to the smaller M-ATX and M-ITX boards, but in this day and age, with such great compact boards on the market from both camps that's not really an issue.  Sling in just enough storage, the ability to house 5.25" devices without spoiling the looks, and oodles of room inside, and we should have the makings of a winner.  Oh and did we mention it only costs £80!
