Phanteks P600S Mid-Tower Chassis Review – Premium Just Got Affordable
Peter Donnell / 4 weeks ago
A Closer Look – Exterior
The P600S is a mid-tower chassis, albeit on the larger side for its class. There’s a massive tempered glass window on the side, offering great views of the interior. Furthermore, the panel is trimmed with some black lining on the inner edges and mounted on a pair of hinges with a magnetic latch to open it.
The right side panel is just a blank panel. However, this one is also mounted on a set of hinges with a magnetic catch. Opening up the chassis to clean, install hardware, etc, is going to be pretty darn easy.
Feature Packed Front Panel
The front panel looks fantastic. It has a pretty clean design that’s all colour matched with the rest of the chassis. On the sides, you’ll find loads of ventilation for any front mounted cooling. However, there’s a large magnetic panel that’s packed with filters and noise dampening materials on the front also.
Towards the front top, you’ll find even more ventilation, keeping airflow nice and high. However, there’s also a hidden panel just near the top.
Just flick it up with your finger, and you’ll find a hidden I/O panel, which includes USB Type-C and USB 3.0 ports.
Pull at the top of the large panel to release it from the magnetic mounts. This allows you to lift it out of the way entirely.
It’s a thick metal panel, with multi-layer noise dampening material pre-applied.
Behind that, there’s a soft fabric filter infront of two intake fans.
Snap the panels back in place, and it’s all hidden out of sight once again.
Much like the front panel, the top has a mid-section which is magnetically mounted.
Again, you’ll find it to be another thick panel, loaded with noise dampening materials.
If you want to dive further in, you can remove the entire top panel with two thumbscrews at the rear of the chassis.
Once it’s removed, there are mounts for a wide range of fans and radiators. However, even this whole panel can be removed to ease the installation process.
Around the Back
There are plenty of things going on around the back of the P600S also. Towards the top, there’s a 120/140mm fan mount. However, it has height adjustable mounts, meaning it’ll be easy to fit radiators here and navigate any compatibility issues.
It’s an ATX chassis, so you’ll find seven expansion slots. However, there are three more mounted vertically, perfect for mounting a GPU there, and with three slots, even the thickest GPUs on the market will fit with ease.
Finally, at the base, you’ll find the PSU mount, with a slide out dust filter for easy maintenance.
