Phanteks Enthoo Luxe and Pro M get the glass touch

Back in April, Phanteks released a version of its Enthoo Evolv case with tempered-glass side panels. That case was apparently a popular choice, as the company is now adding tempered-glass side panels to two other models in its lineup. Enter the Enthoo Luxe Tempered Glass and Enthoo Pro M Tempered Glass.

Unlike the Evolv—which got a pair of glass panels—both of the cases Phanteks is releasing have a single sheet of tempered glass for the left-side panel. The new versions look to be unchanged from the previous iterations save for the glass panels themselves, so if you're already familiar with the Enthoo Luxe or Pro M cases, you know what you're getting here.

For those unfamiliar with it, the Enthoo Luxe is a full tower chassis that can take ATX, E-ATX, and SSI EEB motherboards. Phanteks says the case can take three 5.25" drives, six 3.5" drives, and four 2.5" drives simultaneously. The case comes with four 140-mm fans and can accept two more. Alternatively, builders can mount 240-mm radiators in the front and bottom of the case, a 120-mm radiator in the rear, and a massive 420-mm radiator in the top. Just like the regular Luxe, the tempered glass variant includes RGB lighting that can sync with Asus' Aura or MSI's Mystic Light systems.

The Enthoo Pro M is a more moderate mid-tower chassis, although it can still take E-ATX motherboards up to 26 cm wide. It can accept eight 3.5" disks and three 2.5" disks simultaneously. The case also has a 5.25" drive bay that can be removed in favor of mounting a 360-mm radiator up front. Another 360-mm cooler can be mounted in the top, and a 120-mm unit can fit in the rear of the case. If liquid cooling isn't your thing, the Enthoo Pro M includes two 140-mm fans, and can accept two more.

Both cases include a PWM fan hub and re-usable fan filters. Phanteks hasn't announced US pricing for the new versions, but the company says they should be available this month. Phanteks suggests a price of €99 for the Enthoo Pro M Tempered Glass, while the Enthoo Luxe Tempered Glass should be €169.

    I L.O.V.E my Enthoo lux case. It was a breeze to build in, and remains incredibly easy to open back up and swap components around and maintain. All in all though I think I prefer my original to this look. I really don’t get why people want to see their drive cages.

    I always thought the mini triangular led lit windows that shows only the Phantek badge was a cool little touch to the original enthoo case. To each their own I guess.

    Pro-M is a great case. I ended up building into an H440 for myself but I’ve used the Pro-M and come away seriously impressed.

      It’s only $85 with the acrylic clear window on amazon right now. $60 for the regular window version. Seems like a steal.

        Phanteks cases in general are on the high end of the bang-for-your-buck scale. Most people just don’t know about them because they fail to do due diligence in case research and Phanteks really doesn’t spend a lot of money on advertising.

        I feel like a broken record on the TR system build guide comments because I’m always urging Jeff to get his hands on these and throw out some reviews/recommendations.

        Yeah. It’s an average quality, well-designed case at a sensible price.

        The high-quality case market (rigid, laser cut steel, high quality buttons and ports, CNC aluminium etc) has basically vanished. These days there are certain companies getting away with charging flagship prices (>$150) for a relatively flimsy, stamped and rivetted steel product garnished with lots of brittle plastic. There’s nothing wrong with those cases unless you’re being massively overcharged for them.

    What do you suppose the two slots in the grillage next to the expansion slots are for?

      Clips for a dust filter, maybe? The manual alludes to such a thing:

        A reasonable guess, but no.

          ah, makes sense.
