Seems to have the makings of a very “cool” case

Phanteks has so far limited itself to manufacturing PC cooling solutions, but very soon it will have its very first PC case on the market in the form of the Enthoo Primo . To this end, it has now divulged all the vital product details it chose to withhold last month, when it teased its impending entry into the world of PC cases through a couple of short preview videos.

Given the company’s background in cooling, it is no surprise that the Enthoo Primo promises “extreme cooling capacity,” with as many as 16 fan mount locations. What’s more, it will ship with five Phanteks PH-F140SP140 mm fans. There is no dearth of water cooling options either.

“Phanteks’ Enthoo Primo features a unique PSU thermally isolated location, multifunctional cable/reservoir cover, exclusive brackets, and massive cooling potential,” the company said in a press release earlier this week. “With the PSU located in the back of the case, this allows for a cleaner look and better cable management.”
