The Enthoo Evolv ITX Tempered Glass is one of the latest cases from the American manufacturer Phanteks. This particular model is good looking from any angle. On top of that also the build quality is top notch and so are the ventilation options and the internal layout. In terms of build quality and materials used we can't find anything to criticize.

The looks of a case are always a matter of individual taste but when checking out the interior, we believe this layout is as close to perfection as it gets. Everything is tool-free and therefore removing the front panel to access the dust filter for instance is as simple as it can be. Even the cable management is perfect, since there are plenty of grommeted eylets and the delivery even includes a number of velcro straps. One of the key aspects of this case it's the great compatibility with custom liquid cooled setups since it allows the installation of up to two 280mm and one 120/140mm radiator. Nevertheless we'd recommend checking the dimensions carefully before buying custom water cooling gear for this case.

The Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX with Tempered glass is available on Geizhals at a price of 75 euro excluding shipping costs and you can buy this case in anthracite, black and red as well as black color. In our opinion this case is very competitively priced. There is only one downside, which is the fact that you can't install 2.5 slot graphics cards and you're limited to dual-slot cards. This isn't the biggest of issues but since some custom design graphics cards nowadays feature 2.5 slot coolers again you'll have to check the specs at this point as well before putting your system together. We award the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX Tempered Glass with 4 out of 5 stars.
