With each chassis we see from Phanteks, we are taken back with just what goes on inside and out of their cases. The Enthoo Primo is hands down the most well thought out design for water cooled systems, and the Enthoo Pro is the most budget friendly, and leads the way in what is possible to obtain in a $100 chassis. When it comes down to the Enthoo Luxe, we find that it is worth every penny of the investment. With the accessories that bolster the feature set, along with the sleek and stealth way they hid the LEDs into the design, the Enthoo Luxe has us spinning around ways to use words like "fantastic," "exceptional," and "superb" without coming off as too aggressive. But, the Enthoo Luxe really is all of that, and more.
While the Luxe is not as large as the Primo, it is within reason of the Pro that starts at $100, and it fills the void in price gap. However, since it offers things like plenty of black wiring to cleanly manage the chassis, room for nearly any length PSU, CPU cooler, and video cards, and the ability to completely dismantle the chassis and leave components out as needed, there are no complaints on its feature set.
Even with the general aesthetics of the design, it is a cross between the two as it is, and the resemblance is easy to see. Although, once the Luxe is powered and the LED lights kick on, it just adds that certain something that the previous designs were lacking aesthetically. Where air flow is concerned, there is plenty of it to keep temperatures down across the system; since airflow is PWM controlled via the built-in hub, the most we ever heard from the fans was 35dB of noise.
It is rare that a chassis company can come up with such a hit even once, and to do it twice is heading in the realm of magic, voodoo, hocus pocus, or whatever it is you believe in. To do it three times in a row just seems impossible, but somehow Phanteks has managed to do so. The Enthoo Luxe shows us once again that Phanteks is setting the bar, and is doing a great job offering what the market needs at any price range, with any set of needs and desires.
To top it all off, Phanteks also plans to offer addition components for the chassis; you can even add storage, more pumps, get interior chassis lighting, or add an additional PWM hub for control of additional water cooling. It seems Phanteks has you covered from every angle, and with this Enthoo Luxe, we have found our favorite chassis from Phanteks yet. While you may not like the $159.99 pricing for the black model, or the ten dollars extra for the white version, you cannot deny that you are definitely getting every penny's worth with an investment into Phanteks' Enthoo Luxe full-tower chassis.
