After an enthusiastic reception of the Enthoo Primo, Phanteks has decided to expand their selection of cases to include a new mid tower case. This case is name the Luxe, and is packed with enough features to possibly live up to the name.
If there is one area of the PC world that is difficult to release something unique in, it would be cases. While it might seem that the possibilities are limitless, the truth is there are a very tight set of requirements to which builders must conform. These guidelines result in manufacturers churning out case after case that are essentially the same thing. Sure they may add this plastic bit here, or convert something else to be more tool less there, but at the core they are the same. This has had both positive and negative effects. The case mod scene comes from the desire for individuality in this sea of indistinguishable parts and has resulted in some impressive builds. However, many are left building their machines within the strict confines allowed by their cases. Fortunately for those of us looking for something unique and appropriate there are still some companies thinking outside the box. Today we will take a close look at the Phanteks Enthoo Primo full tower case and see if Phanteks is one of these companies.

I have been covering computer hardware for quite some time and one thing that I’ve seen a lot of are companies that specialize in CPU coolers and cooling come and go. Today we are checking out a CPU cooler from a relatively new company called Phanteks. They currently offer CPU Cooler and cooling fan solutions. The CPU cooler is the PH-TC14CS which is a C-type cooler that features dual 140mm fans, 5 heatpipes, and a large copper base. The cooler also comes in a variety of colors so you can match it up with your case and other components. Read on as we check it out.
Phanteks have been working in the cooling market for almost 20 years, but relatively recently they decided to breach into the consumer space with the incredible PH-TC14PE. Receiving rave reviews across the industry, Phanteks have made a name for themselves in very little time by dethroning the Noctua NH-D14, which was regarded as the king of air CPU cooling for quite some time. If you were to obtain a Phanteks PH-TC14PE, you’ll also be provided with 2 PH-F140TS 140mm case fans. These fans are rated to have very high airflow whilst not making much noise, credited to their Maelstrom Vortex Booster design on the blades of the fan itself. We’ve received the blue version of the PH-F140TS, but it comes in black, red, orange and white too. Keep reading if you want to see if this fan is able to blow away the competition.
