Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV ITX Case Review

Final Thoughts
There is no doubt that Phanteks is absolutely killing it with their cases. Aside from the hype of being a newer company and case manufacturer, every new case launch is greeted with enthusiasm from the majority of reviewers and potential customers as well. The Enthoo Evolv ITX is certainly no exception, but does it live up to the hype and deliver well? I feel that it does. While it is easy to build a small case, building one that is actually functional is no small task. Aside from great looks I feel that the best feature of the Evolv ITX is really how easily functional it is. To start it is a light case that is easy to move around and doesn’t hassle you when building. Followed up by brilliant touches like the GPU expansion space and the removeable radiator bracket, you will feel really positive while building up your new ITX rig. There is plenty of HDD space for a case this small, and fully filtered fans are awesome. For those of us that can’t help but take things apart and tinker, all the screws instead of cheaper rivets are a welcome sight. There is a good amount of room behind the motherboard for hiding cables as well as a ton of pass throughs to assist in your cable management. Lastly but certainly an important item to note is the cost of the Evolv ITX. While the case isn’t yet available on any major US retailer sites it should be released at $79.99. Frankly this is a flat out a steal. You get well over that price in features and build quality.

While it would have been nice to see this case done in aluminum, you would never see such a case at this price. And one could argue that a single fan might be a bit light and why not include the HDD and pump bracket? I see these as being exclusions that are explained in the price.
