Phanteks p500a pc case

In recent years, Phanteks' product list and reputation have exploded. The brand has launched a variety of protective sleeves for various budgets, and all products do not affect function or quality. I can view the Phanteks PC case through the pink lenses, but this is mainly due to the impressiveness of every model I have reviewed or built so far. Enthoo 719 is an incredibly complete tower, but Phantek's main stronghold seems to be in the Zhongta market.

Today we will review Phanteks P600s, which is the latest flagship model in the brand's Eclipse series. This case has been around for more than a year, but it still feels very popular, with excellent airflow, aesthetics, sound insulation and modularity.

Let's take a look.

4 4 4 40 4 40 40 An invisible briefcase with attitude. There are angles and vents in all the right places, which makes this look very futuristic. At first glance, the front looks like a solid panel with a slanted grille on top and vents on both sides. The design is impeccable, but the most impressive thing about Phanteks P600s is its modularity and ability to switch from one configuration to another. The main feature of

P600s is its switchable modes, from bliss to high-performance airflow. The original setting is in silent mode. To change this setting, you need to remove the front magnetic center panel. If you have little fingers, that's fine, but I have to lift the I/O cover, which I will discuss later. Once removed, the next important feature in Phanteks' repertoire will be revealed, his cloth armor. This mesh is a highly breathable nylon, which allows for greater airflow compared to traditional mesh filters. There appears to be a double layer of nylon mesh, which is then supported by a magnetic dust filter on the back, and they work together to limit the amount of dust entering the system.

Of course, if you're only focusing on airflow, you might consider P500A rather than spending extra money on this feature, but it's a feature that I like and I have to thank Phanteks because it contains so many options. Like other panels, the front detachable center panel uses high-quality sound insulation materials, which is very good for those who like acoustic performance.

As mentioned above, the front is where we see the I / O, which is hidden by a flip panel to keep the overall aesthetic consistent. The reality is, you could flip it over and use it for life, but it looks really cool. The

I / O includes:

You will notice that there is no power button on the front because it is located on the front and in the middle of the top of the chassis. The rear of the

is not as basic as other situations at this price, which depends on the function of the dual system in the first place. At the top, you will see a detachable panel to make way for the ITX bracket sold separately by Phanteks. Below the

ITX slot is a space for 120 or 140mm fans, which comes pre-installed with a 140mm fan. You can also get PCIe 7 + 3 slots. Although vertical installation is the norm at this price, three slots are another good option for this spacious chassis. Phanteks includes the necessary brackets to fix the GPU to the top of the deck, but if you plan to install it vertically, you must purchase a lifting cable separately. The hinges on the side panels of the

are at the rear. This is my preferred design because I think this is the easiest way to remove the panel. The exposed hinge allows the door to open more than 180 degrees and allows each panel to be lifted. The component side of the

case uses a full-length tempered glass panel, in which Phanteks contains an opaque frame, which always adds an extra aesthetic point in my books. The glass panel has a slight tint to help you complete the visual appearance of the build, while allowing you to see some extras, such as modified cables. The

's side panels do not require tools and are attached to the case by four powerful magnets. Good contact with magnets is the use of a thin layer of rubber on top of each magnet, which means that when the panel is closed it will make a satisfying thud instead of a click. These side panels make everything from build to upgrade a breeze and as mentioned above it is my first choice for side panel design. The

's rear panel is solid and has the same sound absorbing material as the top and front of the case. It can be seen from the weight alone that these can eliminate noise in the system. Another good practice is to use rubber strips around the boundary of each side panel, which not only helps improve acoustic performance, but also primarily forms a seal and also provides you with better airflow.

Take a walk in the park. Or, you can choose to use the dual system bracket of the case, there is a space for the ITX motherboard in the upper rear corner of the P600, and they also provide you with a magnetic cover to fill the unused slots when using smaller rads. The top of the

is also where you can find the power button. It just shows you what Phanteks thinks about its advanced chassis. The P600s is equipped with useful build features from head to toe.

If you are familiar with Evolv, the P600 and its spacious interior will feel great. This is a bit higher than some other mid-tower options, but the extra space comes in handy, especially during construction. The interior design is logical and everything is just right.

In the front, we have room for three 120mm or 140mm fans, of which two 140mm fans are pre-installed. The included fan does an excellent job of airflow out of the box, but adding another fan will only make it more powerful. There is a cutout on the PSU cover to make room for a sturdy radiator or reservoir. You can install a front radius of up to 360 or 280 mm on the front, giving you plenty of interior options for use with a carefully crafted custom ring.

At the bottom, we have one of the best PSU protectors, it is solid metal, which is well integrated with the overall color scheme. There are some brand logos that look great on the cover font, and there is a cutout where the PSU is located to cater for those who are going to grab a model with a display or RGB lighting. The top of the

is where you will have room to install the dual system motherboard. The bracket for this is sold separately and will be attached to the mounting bracket on the P600s.

The only real criticism I can think of for this case is the cable management clip that comes with Phanteks. They include this feature in most cases, but it is a feature that doesn't need to be as fancy as these. They work very well and the color scheme looks great, but in my opinion, a simple cable rod or rubber gasket would be a better choice. Phanteks

has a dual-strap cable management system, a set of strategically placed single Velcro straps, making it very easy to manage your PC cables. The straps and buttons can be removed with a screwdriver, which means finer management can be done if needed. The top of the

P600s is the fan hub that comes with it. If you have it and the pre-installed fans are already running on the hub, it has enough space to accommodate more fans. There are also three SSD mounting trays on the back of the

, which I removed to make way for the AIO fan hub of my choice. You can also get four hard drive trays in the accessory kit, which can be stacked and placed in the basement, providing you with plenty of storage options.

In general, Phanteks Eclipse P600s is one of the best cases on the market. Although I still prefer the Corsair 5000 series, Phanteks still ranks high on my list. If configured correctly, the P600s has excellent heat dissipation performance, and I prefer the option to make my system like a quiet, hidden beast.

For pure airflow performance, there are some alternatives that can save you some money, such as Phtankes P500a, but in this case, it is full of various functions, making it not only a high-quality choice, but also better than competitors High value.
