Yeah, you also only have 1 choice on where to mount the WC pump now, which is where the lower HDD cage would go or the fan for a rad. So basically if you want to use the padded pump mount, you are restricted to a 360MM rad up top and just a 120/140 in the back if you have 3.5inch HDD's.

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

Without going into it too deeply, getting a "Phantom made out of Aluminum" would basically be impossible to produce. It would need to be diecast aluminum, which would be about 4x more expensive to develop than say the 900D. The technique used to produce Caselabs and Silverstone cases is called extruded Aluminum, which basically limits your parts to a 2D design. This is why today's steel cases tend to be more intricate in their design.

Beyond the hurtles of getting such a case developed would be getting it into the customers homes. This case would essentially be our entire R&D budget for 4 years, would cost around $300, and would need to sell by the thousands every month. It just isn't feasible for us to do this.

However you can see we recognize the importance of material and finish quality, with the H630 we made this our top priority and I assure you, there will be more to follow... soon. thumb.gif

Im sure the answer is no but can you give us any insight on what's to come? I'm a week away from jumping on a new case to replace my Switch 810 and I would rather stick with NZXT. It's pretty awesome having a direct line to the reps on here thumb.gif

I would say hold off for a little bit, but don't expect anything too large. Haha thank you! smile.gif

As a Enthoo Primo owner, I can tell you it is the single finest pc chassis I've ever owned, and is the last pc chassis I will own for many years. smile.gif

The Enthoo Luxe looks to be essentially the same design in a smaller package -- appropriate for smaller form-factor watercooling or air cooling. Jump on this without hesitation, folks. Phanteks is here to play. biggrin.gif

I think Phanteks is positioning themselves to be the next big powerhouse in the mass production market.

I agree, and I think the introduction of the Enthoo Luxe (re: smaller form factor for mass appeal) cements that.

I was heavily considering the primoo but that blue led strip is a no go for me. I know I could change it out but ...meh

It's pretty easy to swap it out for a different color. Unfortunately, though, RGB for multi-color control isn't really an option due to the dimensions of the LED channel.

I'm glad to see they went a different route with the lighting on the Enthoo Luxe, though. They're learning from the very few complaints we early adopters have made.

Looks good, friend bought a phantek case recently. Idk why would need to get a 900D now. If you need bigger go Caselabs

I figured that was an RGB LED?
