Phanteks has recently released a new full tower chassis that combines flexibility and functionality without the added cost – the Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Full Tower chassis. The Enthoo Luxe is designed to accommodate and cater the needs of every PC enthusiasts and system builders; fully supports customized water cooling setup and has lots of space for high-end components. In my opinion, the Luxe looks like a combination of the Enthoo Primo and and Enthoo Pro. The said full tower chassis is available in Black and White colors and features multi-color LED ambient lighting. Check out the rest of its features, specs, and price below. There’s also a review video of the white version below.
Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Features
The Phanteks Enthoo Luxe’s front and top aluminum panels are sandblasted to create a textured appearance. This allows for an attractive and practical solution to reduce the appearance of fingerprints on the case. LED ambient lighting stretches all through the top and front of the case creating luminous edges and providing a spectacular indirect light effect.
The Luxe’s stealthy interior design only showcases the mainboard and its components while isolating the bulky power supply out of sight with the included power supply cover. This removable cover not only isolates the power supply from view but also acts as a thermal shield from the rest of the case.
Fully equipped with many accessories, including 2x removable Drop-n-Lock SSD brackets, PWM hub, pump bracket, reservoir bracket, and PSU cover.
For cooling, the Luxe has an exceptional watercooling potential. It can mount various sizes of radiators to four different locations on the case. A watercooling heaven for many watercooling enthusiasts.
