What do you get when you cross a mid tower case with a mini-itx computer motherboard? You get the Phanteks Enthoos EVOLVE case. Phanteks really did a fine job mixing the age old, tried and true way of computer building with next gen. Mini-ITX and Micro-ATX computers. This case can take any size video card and they made room for the builder to do a custom water loop or use an all-in-one cooler like we did or use any sized air cooler you might desire. The Phanteks family thought of everything and this is the “Best Mini-ITX case I have ever built with” and I have built quite a few and they are usually like doing a Rubic’s Cube.
My Editor once asked me when I got really excited about a product and, he said. “Derek, is it really a 10 of 10. Do you think that it’s perfect?” I will have to say yes. If there is a perfect computer case for Mini-ITX build I found it in the Phanteks Enthoos EVOLV computer case. I am not a pessimist but I really could not find anything bad to say about this case even when I was building into it and that is the time I call them every name in the book. This is as close to a perfect case and one that will surely be a classic of years to come. One reason it will be around a long time is that its almost indestructible, you can’t bend it or break it unless you use a really big sledge hammer.
Phanteks built the Enthoos EVOLV like a military all personnel vehicle and the price is perfect too, because if it were my company, I would ask $229.00 for this case instead of the $129.99 that is the real price of one of these cases. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV Case a 10 out of 10 score and our Editor’s Choice Award!
