After the Enthoo Evolv ATX is available as a version with tempered glass sides, the Dutch now also buy hard-glass sides from the Evolv series of micro-ATX cases. In addition, the I / O panel has been moved and is now better to reach, while the interior has been a bit "tidy".
The PHANTEKS Enthoo Evolv Micro ATX Case - Tempered Glasss:
Stylish design in a noble look
Tempered glass sides
2x USB 3.0 behind a panel in the front
Power button now on the top
Space for 360 mm radiators
Graphics cards up to 31 cm
Very high processing quality
Micro ATX housing for water cooling
The Phanteks Enthoo Evolv Micro ATX enclosure is also ideal in the Tempered Glass edition for the installation of a custom water cooling system. 360- and 280-mm radiators can be installed in the front and the cover, and pumps and general terms and conditions can be found next to the mainboard. A removable panel in the power supply cover increases the available space, but without the hard disk cage on the floor in front of the power supply.
31 cm long graphics cards can be accommodated in the relatively large Micro ATX housing. If the pixel accelerator is equipped with a water cooling, there is still sufficient space for radiators and pumps / general conditions in the front. If you want to use Phanteks in your custom water cooling, you can rely on CPU and VGA watercoolers with RGB LED lighting from Phanteks - of course, with matching Phanteks fittings!
Tempered glass sides for admiring the hardware
Whether you need cooling or air cooling, the careful installation of the hardware and good cable management are worthwhile with the Enthoo Evolv Micro-ATX. The left side part is made of hard glass and allows a view of the interior of the tower. The side panels, however, are not bolted, but are supported by two hinges and can be opened conveniently as a door, while magnetized edges hold the side parts tightly closed.
A narrow toned border on the left side part is in contrast to the almost completely tinted right. A cut-out provides a look at the two SSD mounts behind the mainboard tray. Velcro closures help cable management as well as rubberized cable ducts. The PSU-Shroud can be installed with a power supply of up to 180 mm in length, which is either supplied with fresh air through the floor (with filter) or from the inside of the enclosure. For the latter option, there is a grid area on the cover.
The partition between the PSU and the mainboard is half-open to the left so that the power supply is visible and only the removable hard disk cage (for 2x 2.5 or 3.5 inch) is hidden. Two fans, completely black in color, 140 mm fans are factory-installed and produce good airflow. Additional LEDs are included in the case, which can be used to change the lighting in the front.
