Phanteks Enthoo Evolv X

Maximum PC - - CENTERFOLD -

IT’S NO SE­CRET THAT PHANTEKS has pro­duced some of our ab­so­lute fa­vorite cases of all time. Its at­ten­tion to de­tail, use of high-qual­ity ma­te­ri­als, and in­no­va­tive de­sign phi­los­o­phy has forged some true gems when it comes to those rec­tan­gu­lar boxes our sys­tems call home.

As for the Evolv X? Well, it’s an evo­lu­tion­ary step up from Phanteks’s orig­i­nal Evolv. This mid-tower mon­ster takes all the fea­tures of the orig­i­nal Evolv, and im­proves upon them. From en­hanced air­flow to bet­ter spac­ing, su­pe­rior tem­pered glass pan­els, now fix­able in place, and those in­tu­itive rear hard drive cad­dies, it’s a case to be ad­mired. Of course, there’s also the added in­clu­sion of some smooth­flow­ing RGB, all dig­i­tally con­trol­lable and ready to go, and su­perb cool­ing sup­port. Oh boy, it’s a liq­uid­cooler’s dream, that’s for sure.

So, what’s the catch? What’s the price of this beau­ti­fully crisp, clean so­phis­ti­ca­tion? Weirdly, there isn’t one, re­ally. Th­ese ad­di­tions have been added at min­i­mal cost to the end user. In fact, com­pared to its pre­de­ces­sor’s price on launch, this go­liath of sand-blasted alu­minum and pow­der­coated steel only costs $10 more. Sure, it will still set you back $200, but for what you get, it’s more than worth it. – ZAK STOREY
