Was just reading a review on this case and it is really close to amazing for an entry level case. For some reason Phanteks did not design the case for top rad mounting, not tall enough and not enough mounting offset. Shame really.

I don't like the P400. I can't really see the point of this case and they missed so many marks. they really should have just implemented some of the things found on this case in the already existing Pro M. also, going from $70 (too close to the Pro m already) to $90 depending on which SKU you buy is nuts. Phanteks needed a $50 case (still with better execution than this) and they needed to repackage the Pro M with two cheap 120 mm fans and an extra SSD bracket. I hope they make a poll or Q and A in this thread before they plan to release their next case because they are on a steep, downward trend.

I think the intent was to present a different look. To day they have 2 basic looks Enthoos' and Evolvs'. Now they add the Eclipses'.

Some people like nice square line, some like the more solid look of this aluminum panels, and some like un-square lines. I haven't decided if I like it's looks or not yet. Didn't like the Evolv at first, but do now. wink.gif

Agreed. A couple of tweaks on the Pro M would have served them better. I do like the look of the nose better on this, but no top rad? Really?

I actually really like the look of the Eclipse, but I'm the type to scrutinize cases based on everything but looks as they are subjective and will be either good or bad depending on who you ask, and that's where this thing fails, everywhere else.

exactly. we didn't need this, nobody asked for it and the execution on several things just keeps getting worse. the Gamers Nexus review was pretty harsh, but almost all are very valid points. he didn't even touch on the fact that adding any front mount radiator removes the mounting for optional hard drive brackets and the fact that just as in the Pro M and Evolv ATX, adding a 360 rad in the front removes all hard drive mounting. and that is an issue that could be solved easily on the Pro M and Evolv ATX by having the ability (which none of their cases have, though with their first three releases I can see why) to move the hard drive cage closer to the psu. there is plenty of space.

I, personally, would have liked the HDD moved to the back behind the res/optional HDD area. They fit back there but there is no way to cleanly mount them. Adding the drop and locks back there would have made the Evolv ATX/Pro M so much more attractive to me. Well, that and making them an inch taller so you could fit two 360mm rads.

While I'm not sure abut the Eclipse series, I will give it a chance. Just because some don't like it doesn't mean everyone else won't like it Considering how well most other Phanteks cases have been received, I would assume they have good reason to build the Eclipse series Only time will tell.

Mounts for HDDs in back is a good idea.

Filter wise, I had how all case makers with almost no exception have the PSU filter pull ou the back. To me this is total stupid If it slid forward and out the front or even out the side. If they did this we wouldn't have to pull the case away from te wall to get get the darn filter out and clean it.

Fact is the Enthoo Luxe is a perfect example of blind design engineers. If the PSU filter is taped to the front pull out filter both can be pulled out and put back in from the front of case. Mine is and it works great!
