I understand this, but i am the type of customer who will pay that premium for something like an aluminum case, look at the TJ 11 fantastic case and honestly my only choice as i hate case labs box designs

NZXT designs looks even better but the quality of the case is no were near comparable.

if only there was a aluminum phantom (not such a fan of the switch), price can be in the same ballpark as case labs or tj 11/07, I would happily pay 500 to 600 for a product like this but i can understand why you wouldn't make this eg BOM and market size

but at least make it some sort of metal eg steel just please no glossy cheeky plastic

Phanteks and Corsair at least use aluminum plastic combination but still the boring box design, its not great but its something, not to mention the reasonable prices

I have 2 puling in air on low speed and 1 sucking out - not including psu.

Sooooooooooo quite and there is to much emphasize on temps then noise. Rather be up a few degrees and way down in decibels thumb.gif

its a balancing act that can be tailored to your needs and if I was to set the temp range given by the default heat sink, i bet would have no noise tongue.gif

I don't understand why people buy such expensive cases; unless you are filling them with 4 GPU, 8 HDDs, etc. where the cooling and cable management is actually needed. tongue.gif

Are you trying to say that a case does not affect your temps?

They can't. Silverstone holds the patent on that (yes, they patented the 90 Degree Motherboard Orientation).

I like where Phanteks is going with their chassis. That Enthoo Primo would be right up my alley in style, except I'm moving toward smaller form factors which means the chassis is a bit too large for me to use, but that's just because of my personal decision to go smaller. I think Phanteks is positioning themselves to be the next big powerhouse in the mass production market.

Proven by Steam Boxes. Let the PSU vent itself out of the case, The GPU vent direct out and then chamber the CPU and HDD area with 1 intake and outtake .. job pretty much done at 1/4 of the size.


I have always wondered why aftermarket PC cases stray so far away from much smaller OEM case designs that have internal airflow plastic shields and chambered designs (other than for 2/3/4 GPU's 2 CD-Roms and 5 HDD's type builds)



Having said that variety is the spice of life sometimes people want something and it doesn’t have to make sense (like a 5.0ltr V8 vs a 2.0ltr turbo that’s just as fast and more efficient)

There's almost no need for a massive case anymore. Even small ITX cases can often fit 5 HDD's and a 10" GPU with a fast overclocked Quad now AIO coolers are here.

Damn near every water-cooling build on this site begs to differ. 
water Cooling is another exception

every case uses different fans. Go figure.

When you think ambient temps of the system case are not much different then the outside, where is the energy difference to account for such extremes? The increased airflow over the independent coolers what matters. Mass air flow over the cooler is what cools the components, not how much air you pull into the case.

Luxe looks better (more symmetry than Enthoo Primo), but the lighting stuff is gimmicky for form rather than function.



Luxe = 560mm tall, 235mm wide, 550mm long (22" high, ~9.25" wide , ~21.65" long)
Dimension comparison (Click to show)
This is smaller than Fractal design arc XL: 232 wide x 572 high x 552mm deep/long
It will also go up against the just announced Corsair Graphite 760T/730T (22.4” high x 9.7” wide x 22.2” deep) but the 730T/760T have three 5.25" bays
NZXT H630 is 245mm(W) x 547mm(H) x 567mm(D)

Luxe looks like it lost the radiator support on the motherboard ("right" when you look a it from front) side panel.

You can see it in this shot of the Enthoo Primo (also adopted in the Cooler Master N600, N400 , N300 , CM Force 500):


Another big change is the switch to a "horizontal" PSU mounting. It seems to have lost the lower rear fan, due to this change in PSU mounting.



Re: Pro



How small is it? It looks less restrictive than Enthoo Primo/Luxe (even those aren't super restrictive)

Also the small triangular window on the side panel seems like a waste of money on tooling

I have a feeling they cut this down too little, it still has four 5.25" bays like the Enthoo Luxe.

If they could get it down to at least NZXT Source 530 size it would be ok ( 235mm x 507mm x 510.5mm or 20x20x9.25")
