Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX SE Case Review
With everything installed and the cables routed you can see that I was able to get a nice and clean looking system with little effort. In the this you might also notice that the drive bracket that was there earlier is missing. Again this is an option that was placed in the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX SE.
Here is a closer look with the drive bracket installed… but wait I have a larger video card than the one you installed.
No fear as the bracket was placed so that it would stay above the graphics card. With another sharp attention to detail Phanteks also put a hinge in this bracket, but why? Well you see if you have everything in place and you want to install that brand new beast of a video card you spent a few weeks worth of pay on all you have to do is remove the two thumb screws, flip up the vertical piece, slide out the old P.O.S. and install the new graphics card, and finally screw the flap back down and you are good to go.
Turning our attention the side we all like to hide we can see that even with all the hardware installed and cables routed to where they needed to go the end result turned our rather good.
One of the features that I like about this case is the usage of the Velcro tie downs. Adding or removing wires and cables is so easy with this set up.
A good size hole was placed just above the top of the motherboard which allowed me to run several cables right to the correct spot.
Another Velcro tie down strap is placed towards the bottom as this would be the place that most of the cables would be coming from the power supply. As seen in the picture.
Plenty of room is given to tuck away any cable or power supply cables that you need to get out of the way. If you play it smart – and I know you will- use a modular power supply and only use the cables needed. This will all but eliminated any frustrations you might get when working with any smaller case.
I did not install any extra fans into the Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV ITX SE as the front 200mm fan seems to do just fine moving the air in the case. If you want more air flow you can clearly see that this is plenty of space to install quite a few extra fans.
