The Phanteks Enthoo Mini XL Case is a tribute to a product that has no boundaries. This case is made for users as simple as the casual multi-fan only air cooling solutions user, to the AIO (All in One) Liquid cooling solutions guys, all the way up to the ultimate in high grade, high priced custom looped solutions of the very imaginative minds of Pro-Modders around the Globe. This case can satisfy the tastes of everyone for one very simple reason. They did it right the first time and it doesn’t need to be re-done to make do or create a way to make a custom water cooling loop work in this case. This case has been engineers alone and not meeting room full of bureaucrats all unilaterally jockeying for their next promotion and not knowing thing one about what they are talking about especially how the Enthusiast and Pro-Modders wants needs or desires. A lot of companies have gotten so big they forgot what they were doing in the first place and spin out a variation of the same product year after year and so on.

This is not a showy design but it could be. It has a true minimalistic quality that can only be appreciated up close and personally to see what it is really like.
