Summary:

I really enjoyed reviewing the Enthoo Pro and although my expectations were set pretty high, Phanteks did not disappoint. Utilizing many features from the Enthoo Primo makes the Phanteks Enthoo Pro a great purchase and a sure winner in my book. Some of the extras included here which you won’t find on too many cases at this price point are: multiple radiator support, two spots for SSD brackets, Modular HDD cages with closed front HD panel, great cable management, perfect window placement, and PSU cover.

If I had to nitpick about anything at all, I would prefer to see the exit for the video card cables on the PSU cover moved up top and in a bit in toward the center so the cables are not so close to the window. Also, there are areas like the front and top bezel that are made of plastic and designed to mimic brushed aluminum. It would have been preferable to be the real deal. Finally, although the paint job is pretty good, it’s not the best I have seen. These are just some of their cost cutting measures that I noticed, but the case is designed for the budget minded individual, so these are minor issues relatively speaking.

Other than these minor cost cutting issues, Phanteks definitely didn’t skimp on all the other features available. Phanteks Enthoo Pro at a price point of only $99.99 USD is a purchase that’s really hard to beat. So, if you’re on a budget and in the market for a Full Tower Chassis that’s very well equipped with a plethora of options, I am happy to recommend the Phanteks Enthoo Pro for your next build.

The Phanteks Enthoo Pro Receives the PureOverclock Great Hardware Award.
