Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Tempered Glass Review

The Enthoo Luxe, Now a Bit More Luxe

Several years ago, Phanteks launched the Enthoo Luxe case which was and still continues to be an excellent full tower case. While I didn’t get a chance to review it at the time, it was easily one of the best reviewed cases on the market with a full tower form factor, sandblasted aluminum exterior, completely tool-less design, great cable management options, and beautiful LED accents that made it well worth its $150 pricetag.

That said, there’s really no case that can’t be made better with a tempered glass sidepanel which is exactly what Phanteks recently added to their Enthoo Luxe. While I can resist reviewing a [...]

Review: AVADirect Avant Mini Cube Gaming PC

Big Performance in a Mini Cube

AVADirect is a boutique system builder with its origins in the suburbs of Cleveland Ohio. It’s probably not one of the first names that pop into your head as a system builder, but they’ve been making everything from gaming to business systems for over a decade.

Recently, AVADirect launched their Avant Mini Cube Gaming PC which is exciting because it’s based on Corsair’s excellent Carbide 240 Air PC case. Despite the relatively small size of the mATX formfactor case, AVADirect managed to fully kit it out with an overclocked Intel Core i7-6700K and GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition. Given how much we love big [...]

Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV Tempered Glass Review

EVOLV, Evolved

Ever since Phanteks first appeared on the market with their massive PH-TC14PE CPU cooler, Phanteks has always been a company known for making some of the most innovative products in both the PC case and cooling markets. Constantly pushing the envelope in terms of features, build quality and value, Phanteks has achieved great success in the chassis market following their debut of the Enthoo Primo back in 2013. This then led to Phanteks’ introducing several more models in the Enthoo lineup such as the more budget focused cases like the Enthoo Pro and Luxe, and the stylish Enthoo EVOLV line.

Today, we’re taking a look at the latest of the Enthoo [...]

CES 2016: Phanteks Displays Eclipse P400/P400s, Enthoo Primo Dual System, Evolv Tempered Glass Edition, Project 916

Phanteks is a name that has been making waves in the case industry, designing some highly innovative and really sweet looking cases. It also happens to be personally one of my favorite brands (I myself run an Enthoo Luxe). Earlier this week, they showed off several of their new cases at CES.

 

Eclipse P400 and P400S

 

The Phanteks Eclipse P400 is something for those looking for a full ATX case on a mid-range to low budget builds.

As a budget case, it does cut some corners as it’s less friendly to those planning on installing custom loops, with the biggest concession to be made if you plan on installing [...]

CES 2016: Corsair Introduces Several New Budget Cases

In the days leading up to the CES main events, Corsair is introduced the Carbide Spec-Alpha, Carbide 400C, and Carbide 400Q to its budget gaming series chassis.

The Carbide Spec-Alpha rocks some aggressive angular lines that are reminiscent of the ever so popular Corsair Bulldog. Its mesh front cover has sufficient room for up to three 120 mm fans but, due to the lack of clearance from the hard drive cage, there is only enough space for a 240 mm radiator. Buyers can choose between red or blue as the primary color, each comes with color matching fans. These and any other additional fans can then be controlled via a built in three speed fan [...]

Best Gaming PC Build Under $1,500 [November 2015]

$1,500 Mid-Range Gaming System

With a number of AAA games being released for the holiday season as well as a number of new hardware announcements for the holiday season, we thought we’d do a new gaming PC build article, this time designed for the mid-range crowd.

With a budget of $1,500, our goal this time was to create a gaming build which would allow gamers to play the latest games at 1080p, 1440p or 1600p at the highest possible settings (or pretty close to it). Additionally, we also designed this system to be as “futureproof” as possible, utilizing all the latest technologies including Intel’s latest Skylake architecture, DDR4 memory, USB 3.1 [...]
