PREMIUM PC CASE FOR THE LIVING ROOM
The Enthoo Evolv Shift offers space for gaming graphics cards up to 35 cm in length and, according to Phanteks, is ideally suited for the installation of AiO water-coolers. With its aluminium surfaces and tempered glass this Mini-ITX case fits seamlessly into any designer living environment and can be placed in a standing orientation, similar to Hi-Fi speakers, or placed horizontally like a games console.
The graphics card is mounted with the accompanying PCIe x16 riser card in such a way as to allow either the backplate or the GPU cooler to be visible from the exterior. The Mini-ITX motherboard is built in parallel to the graphics card with the back panel facing upwards. The ports on the I/O panel as well as the graphics card are hidden beneath a cover to allow all connected cables to be redirected through a gap in the back.
COOLING, STORAGE & ADDITIONAL FEATURES
A 140 mm fan comes pre-installed from the factory at motherboard height in the Evolv Shift and this helps to exhaust warm air out of the case from the front. Additionally the warm air produced by the hardware is also removed via the vents built into the roof of the case. A 120 mm fan or radiator for an All-in-One watercooler can be installed in the lower section, while a further 120mm fan/radiator can be installed in the front.
A 3,5″ hard drive or a 2,5″ SSD can be installed in the rear and two further SSDs can be located in the front using the SSD brackets – at the expense of the bottom 140 mm fans. The baseplate in the back, used for mounting the SSD/HDD, can also be removed to make hardware installation easier.
For the best view of the RGB-LEDs in the installed hardware the integrated LED lighting is compatible with Aura Sync from ASUS, RGB Fusion from Gigabyte as well as MSI’s Mystic Light Sync, all of which can be controlled at the push of a button.
The I/O panel of the Mini-ITX case is located to the left side on the rear of the case and offers two USB 3.0 ports for gaming peripherals or external USB hard drives as well as USB sticks. In typical Phanteks fashion there are several points with Velcro ties as well as rubberised cable guides for cable management in the case design. As well as air vents in the aluminium on the front and rear, there are also dust filters in the casing to offer the system further protection.
