I am sure that you have heard the saying “Good things comes in small packages” and well they say that because most of the time it is true. I do not know about you but I have had my share of “Not so good things” in small packages, fortunately this is not the situation with the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX SE Case. I will have to admit that when I started the inspection of the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX SE the “ITX” part had me apprehensive. I have had so many adventures with smaller cases that did not go so well and had me cursing like my grandmother used to do at holiday gatherings (that is normal with every family, right?). But when I started to take it apart for the images I noticed all the details that I pointed out too you which got my hopes up. During the installation of the hardware I actually did forgot that I was installing hardware in to a small case. I did not have problems with getting the screws into the motherboard, routing the cables and just hoping that there were holes to make it easy and look good, or the worries that I was going to have to push in all the cables on the right side of the case in order to get the side panel on. WTH just happened? I have had worst times with full size cases than this. I will contribute it too two things, one is that I only used what I needed and two that the designers at Phanteks did a great job on laying out the inside of the case by anticipating what the struggles and needs would be. Then toss in a price of just $79.99 USD (for the white/black version and $69.99 USD for the black/red version) this will be a hard ITX case to pass up, so don’t.
