Phanteks Enthoo Luxe vs tempered glass?
« on: August 19, 2018, 08:02:14 PM »
Is there any difference between the regular Phanteks Enthoo Luxe and the tempered glass option other than the appearance of the glass on the case?

That's not the only difference, but it's a big one. The Enthoo Luxe Tempered is far superior. I wouldn't recommend the standard model at this point. The acrylic scratches very easily, reducing the value of the case dramatically. Also, the acrylic window covers only about half the panel, while the glass is the entire panel. It's a substantial aesthetic upgrade. Plus the glass panel swings out on hinges, while the standard acrylic panel is a less impressive slide-in design.

As for performance differences, the tempered glass version has dual 140mm fans in front, instead of a single 200mm fan. It's a better setup overall.
