A Look Inside
Getting inside the Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Tempered Glass Edition is pretty easy. Just remove the two screws on the tempered glass side panel. Now I went ahead and removed the glass panel from the case altogether. You simply lift it up and it comes right off. Taking a first look inside you can see Phanteks has kept it black, which slightly contrasts with the Grey color of the exterior.
Starting at the front of the case we have the three 5.25-inch drive bays, which use a tool-less locking system. Moving down there are two SSD mounts. On the original version of the case this section was sort of empty so it is nice to see something there, especially since we have the all-glass side panel where you can show off your drives.
Moving over we can see the power supply cover. While this is pretty much standard these days Phanteks was one of the first to implement features like this in their cases. There is a cable routing hole built into the power supply cover. The entire power supply cover is removable.
There is quite a lot of room inside this case, it supports motherboards up to E-ATX, graphics cards up to 347 mm, and CPU coolers as tall as 193 mm. The motherboard tray has seven cable routing holes built right in. For those who will be installing a radiator in the top of the case you have 65 mm from the top mount to where your motherboard will be mounted.
Taking the other side panel off we can see how the rest of the case is laid out. The first thing I noticed when I took the second side panel off was the fan hub. It is centrally located and supports up to six fans. This makes it easy to connect all of the fans that come with the case and add more with ease. We can also see quite a lot of Velcro table ties. This will really help you with cable management.
Towards the front you have two hard drive cages. Both of these cages are completely removable from the case. Inside each cage are three removable drive trays which support both 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch hard drives. 3.5-inch drives will be able to be installed tool-lessly, but you’ll need to screw in your 2.5-inch drives.
Moving to the back part of the case there are two more mounts for 2.5-inch drive trays, but the trays are not included. You can easily move the ones from the front of the case back here. When it comes to space behind the motherboard tray you have just about an inch between the motherboard tray and back of the case so cable routing should not be a problem at all.
