Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX Galaxy Silver Edition Review

Table of Contents -

IMG_5313 It seems that the minimalist design is starting to become more and more popular these days. There are still a few companies out there that make what we call pre-modded cases (Those are the ones with all the aggressive angles and funky shaped window panels) but, for the most part most of the modern cases are very minimalist. That just means that much more blank canvas to work with.  A few months ago we reviewed the Phanteks Evolv ATX and now Phanteks has come out with a new “Galaxy Silver” model. Other than the new galaxy silver color, it’s pretty much identical to it’s anthracite brother.
