    Phanteks Enthoo Evolv Shift and Evolv Shift X announced

    Both chassis have a small footprint but the Evolv X makes up for that in its lanky stature.

    I honestly hope that no-one, ever, buys the case. Just because it has x or y it's still a lump of metal/plastic and should be priced as such. Just because it's 'new' or 'different' why price it so high?

    is it just me, or is anyone else put off by the great big case sat on a desk which looks like it's about to tip over?

    Looks like it could be quite good in a lounge environment, apart from the glass top.

    It's "expensive" because it's steel, glass, and it's new (designed from the ground up, as far as I can tell). I hate the word "innovative," push this is rather different, even if not remotely disruptive. I personally really value new case designs - the standardish formats of cases are really poorly thermally designed and often a pain to work in, especially if you are doing custom liquid cooling.

    Yes... laying it down also seems really narrow to try to balance your monitor on. That said, I do think a long case has the potential for more efficient cooling (think like the Corsair One Pro), by getting flow going linearly through the system. It would probably be totally fine on the floor under a desk, or pressed up against a wall. I can see things like this being more common in the future.

    Actually, size wise (especially footprint) plus the ease of access to parts makes this case pretty much perfect for me personally.

    The smaller one is cute, I like it. Provision for a couple of sealed liquid cooling loops isn't a bad idea, and an SFX PSU is plenty for an M-ITX system anyway.

    The bigger one is less sensible, I can understand the appeal of fitting a bigger radiator but why would anyone need so many 2.5" drives?

    I've been eagerly awaiting the arrival of both, they'd look good in the living room, got to decide if the Streacom F12C is getting sidelined for one of these!

    Could definitely blend in with a speaker setup in a TV Room.
