Phanteks Enthoo Luxe 2 Goes from Prototype to Promising

Enthoo Luxe 2
We’ve already shown you the stunning affordable range from Phanteks here at Computex 2019. However, they really don’t pull any punches when it comes to the enthusiast market either. While we first saw this as a prototype at CES 2019, it has certainly come a long way since then.
The Luxe 2 has been tweaks to improve the cooling performance, and comes equipped with the high-end features the modern enthusiast would want in their system build.
It features dual system support, allowing you to use a full ATX or even SSI-EEB motherboard at the main rig. You can then install a mini-ITX system in the base, which could seriously benefit game streamers that need a dual computer configuration to do so.
It’ll handle dual 480mm and dual 360mm radiators at the same time. That’s a crazy amount of liquid cooling! Then again, you can have up to 12x HDD and 11 SSDs too, so it’s not like it’s lacking anywhere else.
Full ARGB, huge airflow, huge design. It’ll be out this August with any luck and priced at $189.99. Honestly, I thought it would be more expensive!
Of course, Phanteks are into more than just cases. As you can see above, the Luxe 2 is a great starting point to show off their new custom loop components.
The Glacier series comes with a pre-made custom distrobution plate that can fit ATX layout cases. It has the usual choices of blocks and fittings too. What I love though it just how damn cool it all looks. There’s so much subjective taste to custom loop, but these do stand out!
The first two blocks for GPUS will be for the Radeon VII or the RTX 2070. So not crazy high-end ones, but more reflective of what most people actually buy. I can’t wait to see more though!
The plate is exciting though, and will fit in the back of most chassis that have a 140mm fan mount in the rear. Remember to check with Phanteks for compatibility when it is available though.
We just want to say a massive thank you to our sponsors for Computex 2019; EK, Taitra, Patriot, Corsair and Viper Gaming. We’ll be bringing you the latest products and news for all these brands and many more while we’re in Taiwan. Check out our Computex 2019 event page for the latest!
