Phanteks Enthoo Primo Ultimate Chassis Review and Build

« Page 3 | Page 5 »



Phanteks says: “Phanteks’ Enthoo Primo features a unique PSU thermally isolated location, multifunctional cable/reservoir cover, exclusive brackets, and massive cooling potential. Phanteks’ new case features a shifted design which allows for the unique PSU configuration. The PSU is thermally isolated, creating cooler temperatures within the case. With the PSU located in the back of the case, this allows for a cleaner look and better cable management.. Exclusive brackets that makes everything a breeze to install. Reservoir bracket that can be use as a cable cover with the modular cover on or as a reservoir bracket with the pre-drilled holes when cover is off. Enthoo Primo includes a pump bracket that supports many different pumps, side radiator bracket and bottom radiator bracket for easy installation.”

This is a FULL Tower ATX case. I mean it’s in the upper class of “full” but also in the upper class of looks. It has a brushed steel look with dimensions measuring 25.0 x 65.0 x 60.0 cm or 9.8 x 25.6 x 23.6 inches (W x H x D). Case volume is 97.5 L which is a good 30-40 L more than most big ATX towers. For perspective a Corsair Obsidian 900D is approx. 114 L.  The Enthoo Primo weighs in at 20Kg or 44 pounds. Now that I can examine the surface, materials, compositions closer I have to say it’s very impressive. There is quality in here.
