Pros: Case of the Year 2013 - Enthoo Primo
Case of the Year 2014 - Enthoo Pro
Case of the Year 2013 - Enthoo Evolv
The one I think is best of the bunch is the Luxe; they made the mistake of getting that one out in the same year as the Pro or they mighta had 4 in a row.
Cons: Will hold that thought until I get done with a few Evolv builds
Other Thoughts: Based upon multiple builds with the Primo, Luxe and Pro, I can't say enough about Phanteks quality and innovation. The best on market fans, the PWM fan Hup that powers 3 pin DCV fans, the pull out rad mount on this case is so well suited for the Swiftech H240-X anbd future loop expansionREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Jonnyguru ratings of 10.0 on build quality and performance; enuff said. have it scheduled to go in a MSI XPower Z170 water cooled Titanium build
Cons: Many cases (i.e. Enthoo Luxe) hide this beauty.
I agree, sell the PSU with a coupon for free set of cables and provide at least a black option and a white option.
Other Thoughts: Had a user who I did a build (in white Enthoo Luxe case) for (he bought all the parts) who bought an EVGA G2 1000 due to a one time sale that had it cheaper than the G2 750 (which was all he needed for SLI'd 970s) .... I had recommended the Snow but a) the price as over $100 more than the G2 at the time of the sale and b) the perty white PSU was hidden by the case's optional PSU shroud so thought was, won't see it. As it turned out, the G2's fan is the loudest thing in the case and now he's wishing the baby snow silent (750) wuda came out 1st as noise is annoying.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Phanteks PH-F140MP 140 mm PWM, High Static Pressure Radiator Fan
Pros: I did see a review where the author concluded that these were sleeve bearings but according to Phanteks engineering department, they are actually equipped with a modified rifle bearing. I have over 30 of them, (16) on my personal box, (10) of which are on rads. One had a bit of a wobble, I sent it back and rec'd 2 back in exchange for my troubles.
Cons: Newegg specials where ya can get them for $10 are now few and far between.
Inlcuding the SP versions in the discussion, the ones that come with Phanteks cases from factory do not have sleeved wires, or the rubber vibration isoltaors
