Good call, forgot about that lol

I really need help deciding on a new case, I had it narrowed down to three, but that's gone up now.

My choices are:

  • Phanteks Enthoo Pro M Acrylic
  • Phanteks Eclipse P400/S
  • Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV ATX Glass (if I save up money / sell my extra hardware)
  • NZXT S340
  • Fractal Design Define R5


I'm open to other suggestions.

What you are planning on doing inside of the case will have a lot of influence on the decision. You may want to list out your intended build for some more accurate answers.

Hi all,

I currently run a Phanteks Enthoo Mini XL, but I am finding the fans a little noisy, they are connected to the fan header, that is connected to my CPU OPT fan header, that sits next to the CPU fan header on my Asus Maximus VI Z87 Gene, so I am sure PWM, not had any issues bar a bit noiier than I like.

They are by no means the worst, but clearly the loudest noise in my PC, as my cooler is a Noctua and the GPU a rather quiet EVGA.

I guess I am asking what quieter fans may be recommended over the stock three 140mm case fans suplied? I sit rather near the case also.

Also tempted to watercool the PC, simple 360 in the roof on the CPU to start if it will be quieter and cooler. Thinking EK pump/res combo in floor where HDD bays are, with EK block and EK-CoolStream XE radiator. Wondering what the quietest fans for that would be too?

Asus Gene VI
Noctua NH-U12S
Patriot Viper 2400MHz 8GB
Samsung 840 Pro 250gb
SanDisk Ultra II 960gb
HGST 4tb

Says the build has been removed.

The way I look at it is:

Get the Pro M if you want to balance appearance, functionality, and price

Get the Evolv ATX TG if you want dat sex appeal and don't mind paying for it (also don't mind a little more air restriction vs Pro M and Define R5)

Get the Define R5 if you just want a nice, average price, black box with lots of room to build in.

Forget the rest.

NP! I would go with the Pro M. I personally do not like the NZXT. Sure it has a nice price, but it is a bad long term investment. The P400 is also cheap, but it is also cheap. The Define R5 is a great case. I had the R4 and the R5 is better in just about every way. The Evolv ATX TG would be a terrific investment that you would likely keep for a long long time. With that said, it is very expensive and it's cost could be put elsewhere in your build. IMO the Pro M is the best middle ground between looks, price, functionality and long term viability.

Finished swapping my build from a Corsair 750d -> Enthoo Primo.


Still a few small things I need to tweak, But overall I like the way it came out.
