Elegant PC case for the living room
The Enthoo Evolv Shift offers space for large, up to 35 cm long gaming graphics cards and according to Phanteks is designed for the use of AiO water chillers. With its aluminum and hard-glass surfaces, the Mini-ITX case fits seamlessly into any designer living environment and can be positioned like the speakers of the hi-fi sound system standing up or presented like a game console.
The graphics card is mounted with the enclosed PCIe x16 riser card so that depending on the preference either the backplate or the GPU cooler points outwards. The mini-ITX motherboard is installed parallel to the graphics card with the backpanel facing up. The connections of the I / O panel as well as the graphics card are hidden under a cover, whereby all connected cables can be routed through a bushing in the back.
Cooling, data storage and other features
There is a preinstalled 140 mm fan in the Evolv Shift, which at the height of the mainboard disposes the heated air over the front out of the case. In addition, waste heat generated by the hardware can escape through the ventilation slots in the cover. A 120 mm fan or radiator of AiO water cooling can be installed in the ground, while another 120 mm fan / radiator can be installed in the front.
A 3.5-inch hard drive or 2.5-inch SSD can be attached to the rear panel, and two additional SSDs can be placed in the front via the two enclosed SSD brackets - at the expense of the lower 140mm fan. The disk in the back on which the SSD / HDD is mounted can be removed to facilitate the installation of the hardware.
The LED lighting integrated in the case is compatible with Aura Sync from ASUS, Gigabyte RGB fusion, and MSI's Mystic Light Sync, and can be changed at the touch of a button to show the hardware installed using RGB LEDs.
The I / O panel of the Mini ITX chassis is located on the left rear side and provides two USB 3.0 ports for gaming peripherals or external USB hard drives as well as USB sticks. In the familiar Phanteks style there are also several fixings with velcro closures for cable management as well as rubberized cable ducts in the design housing. In the bottom and the ventilation slots of the front and rear aluminum covers are dust filters, which protect the system against foreign objects.
