$900 Phanteks Enthoo Elite Displayed at CES 2017

When it comes to huge and expensive chassis, Phanteks don’t screw around. The Phanteks Enthoo Elite is freaking massive, their biggest chassis to date, and it comes complete with a whopping $900 price tag. So what do you get for your money? More than 32KG of expertly crafted materials, that’s what!
With a 4mm sandblasted aluminium design, fitted over a reinforced steel frame, 4mm thick tempered glass side panels, and a curvy edge design with RGB lighting that allows the chassis to appear as if its floating on a pillar of light, it’s certainly an impressive looking beast.
There’s room for a huge amount of storage drives, with up to 13 x 3.5″ and 6 x 2.5″, as well as a single 5.25″ bay. If you thought that was nuts, how about room for five, yes FIVE, 480mm radiators, plus another 140mm rad in the back! Not forgetting dedicated mounts for a reservoir, as well as brackets for two pumps, and two PWM fan hubs.
GPUs can be mounted using riser cards to put them on their side, allowing you to show them off through the side window, and with 10 PCI slots, four huge GPUs can be fit with ease.
A well equipped front panel, with HDMI, Type-C and more. Notice the dual jacks? You can fit an additional mini-ITX system in this chassis too, why dual boot when you can simply have two full systems.
I’ve never said this before, but the box this chassis comes in is cooler than the chassis. It’s a gig worthy shipping crate which is simply awesome, and even houses a huge collection of modular components for your build.
There’s really nothing quite like it, and given that you can easily spend £1000+ on some chassis on the market, you get a whole lot for your money too. So, time to start saving up?
