Phanteks Eclipse P350X Case Review

Final Thoughts

As we have mentioned, we were really impressed with the looks of the Eclipse P350X when we saw it at the Phanteks suite during CES 2018. We also know that things often change between the time you first see a product and when they become available. Thankfully this wasn’t really the case, and what we saw in Las Vegas is nearly identical to what the final product looks like. The Eclipse P350X includes just about every feature you could want from a budget-based midtower ATX case. The tempered glass side panel offers an unobstructed view of your build, while the D-RGB LED light strips at the front and side of the case offer a ton of lighting options.

Putting a system together in the P350X is a breeze, thanks to the perfectly placed cable management cutouts. We had no problems with our install, but we highly recommend taking a look at the detailed specifications for this case and any potential components being installed, as some clearances might be tight. We really appreciate the full-length power supply shroud that also doubles as a divider for the 3.5″ drive cage. And speaking of 3.5″ drives, we really like how Phanteks chose to give access to these drives via the easily removable front panel; this method is so much better than having to remove a side panel and deal with a potential cabling mess.

The only negatives we noticed with the P350X were the lack of a USB Type-C port and the single 120mm fan. We know that many cases still don’t offer a Type-C port, and the cost to include one would be passed onto the consumer, but this connectivity mode is becoming more and more prevalent. And as far as the single fan goes, we really wish a second fan would have been included at the back of the case to assist with getting heat out of the case. Now we also know that most builders are particular about what fans they use, and including multiple fans with the case, just to have them replaced wouldn’t make much sense financially, so we aren’t going to complain about this too much.

Overall, we really think Phanteks has designed an amazing and affordable compact case. Currently selling for $75 over at Amazon, the Eclipse P350X is an amazing deal. With a ton of great features and solid pricing, the Phanteks Eclipse P350X earns a 9 out of 10.
