TechPowerUP Editors Choice Award Enthoo Luxe

In terms of craftsmanship, the Luxe rivals that of the Primo in most regards. Phanteks also tried and succeeded in adding unique features, ones not found in cases by the competition. These range from its multi-colored LEDs to the fan PCB and move on to its interior layout. Sure, none truly "reinvent the wheel", so to speak, but as one, all these esthetic extras do make for a potent chassis when combined with its functional features. Especially its cable-routing possibilities and the focus on having the ability to install complex water-cooling setups make the Luxe an interesting addition to the marketplace. This is further underlined by the inclusion of the fan PCB and a base, each, for reservoir and pump. But even those using all-in-one solutions should be happy with what the Luxe has to offer, while air-cooling fans should be weary as really big coolers may not fit. But such is the tradeoff that had to be made in light of the space behind the motherboard tray, which also allowed for 2 more drive bays on the back. Overall, the Phanteks Enthoo Luxe is a great chassis. Well built, it also comes with a good mixture of features and materials. Even its price is a perfect match for its position in the Enthoo family of cases.
