Phanteks Introduces Eclipse P300 Chassis
Ron Perillo / 5 years ago
Phanteks has a new budget friendly mid-tower chassis called the Eclipse P300. This is the smaller brother to the Eclipse P400, sharing much of the same style and features. It measures 200 x 450 x 400 mm in comparison to the Eclipse P400 which measures 210 x 465 x 470 mm.
Phanteks P300 Features
The style is simple, using subtle angles and the front is devoid of any external drives. The clean exterior appearance continues to the internal layout as well, which is in full view through a tempered-glass side panel. The IO panel runs along the right side top, while the front has ventilation grooves at an angle at the top and bottom. These intakes have dust filters behind them. The front IO even has an RGB LED switch, compatible with MSI, ASUS, and Gigabyte motherboards.
Despite the more compact mid-tower size, the Eclipse P300 can fit a 240mm or 280mm radiator at the front. The top area supports a 120 or 140mm fan as well. Although due to the lower height, it is not ideal to mount a radiator in there. The rear ventilation area supports 120mm fans and radiators as well.
As for other component support, users can install CPU coolers up to 160mm tall and VGA cards up to 330mm long. The PSU area and the HDD cage area has a PSU shroud, hiding messy cables underneath. The HDD cage supports two 3.5-inch or two 2.5-inch drives. An additional 2.5-inch drive can be installed behind the motherboard tray. Users can fit in power supplies up to 197mm long comfortably. Since there is no HDD cage on the way in the main chamber, users can install an E-ATX motherboard.
Pricing and Availability
The Phanteks Eclipse P300 is available for £52.99 in the UK or €59.90 in the rest of Europe.
