Phanteks Enthoo Pro M Case Review

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.
