Phanteks Catch-Up: Enthoo Pro TG, Halos Lux Fan Frames, Glacier Reservoirs
Phanteks is a PC builder’s, pun intended, wet dream when it comes to computer cases. They represent quality, elegance, and amazing support for custom cooling loops. Last month, they announced quite a few products and I feel like you might want a heads up of what’s to come. Not only do we have a glass version of the Enthoo Pro case, but we also have RGB fan rings and innovative reservoirs.
Tempered glass is almost a necessity for a case that’s as amazing as the Enthoo Pro series. Phanteks also has a special edition that gives you an extra fan and two of their RGB fan frames. The only issue I have is the lack of a hinge/latch system for the glass panels, which I feel is a necessary extra step for this caliber of case. Going back to the fan frames though, the Halos Lux are compatible with motherboard RGB headers so you can integrate the lighting with the rest of your system. This also allows RGB to be completely optional and match it to high performing case/radiator fans. Finally, the Glacier series reservoirs come in two sizes and integrate two fairly unique features. The inclusion of a heatsink to help mitigate heat retention is a cool concept, but may not add much to performance in practical use. The fan bracket however, is a great addition that makes installing the reservoir easy in just about any type of case.
Check out the gallery below and you’ll get a good look at everything Phanteks released recently. You can also follow the links to see the full details on their website. To sum it up, if you’re a fan of overclocking, then you should definitely check out these releases and see if they might end up in a future build. Stay posted to PureOC and we’ll be back with more news from CES!
