Phanteks is a company that has been around since 2007, but how many have heard of them. As of lately I would said a lot more. When some engineers and a design team paired up they set out to create the best cooling systems. With four cases under their belt, including the Enthoo Luxe, Phanteks have come into battle hard for their share of the computer case sales. We will be taking a look at the Phanteks Enthoo Luxe and see what this team has come up with this time.
[sc:sponsor sponsor=”Phanteks” product_link=”http://www.phanteks.com/Enthoo-Luxe.html” product_name=”Enthoo Luxe” product_price_link=”http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811854007&cm_re=Phanteks_Enthoo_Luxe-_-11-854-007-_-Product” product_price=”$159.99″ ]
The Luxe is placed into a detailed retail box that shows off some of the options of the out side of the case and all some great images of the both side of the inside of the case.
The case is perfectly protected with a clear plastic bag and Styrofoam caps at the top and bottom of the case.
The accessory box is located inside the case and is securely attached to the hard drive cage with a plastic coated wire tie.
Inside the box you get a users manual, a plastic box full of accessory screws, tie wraps and mounting plates for water cooling parts.
The box full of screws is a super nice touch and if your like me I usually misplace one of the screw bags that came with the case when I need it four months from now.
Another great surprise in the box was two mounting plates for hardware when using water cooling products. The black plate is used to mount you pump to while the larger white plate can be attached to the hard drive cage and a reservoir can be mounted to it.
We all know that each case you buy normally comes with a users manual, but they typically lack any usefully information. The manual that came with the Enthoo Luxe is 36 pages and full of useful information. You get a total breakdown of the case, how many fans can be installed in different locations, the same is done for radiators and much more.
