Phanteks Eclipse P400S Review


Phanteks Eclipse P400S Conclusion:

The Eclipse P400S is a multi-talented mid-tower case with room for just about any system build you can think of. The motherboard tray can handle a range of motherboard sizes from a mini-ITX up to a rather large E-ATX. Absent are any optical drives, but this frees up room for a front mounted 280mm / 360mm liquid cooling radiator. With the way that optical drives are slowly being phased out, do you really miss them? Probably not.

The case follows the current trend of using a fully tempered glass side panel along with a power supply shroud. I have mixed feelings about the shrouds. On one hand, they offer a great way to hide excess cables and wires, leaving you with a clean, streamlined build. Unfortunately, if you have a nice power supply that you want to show off, well you really can't - so I can see both sides of the argument. The RGB lighting is a nice touch and brings the case to life with the ability to select from 10 different colors. Not only is there a light strip that you can mount anywhere you like, there is a front fixed LED strip and an RGB trimmed power button that add to the visual lighting aesthetics.

The built-in 3-speed fan controller is another nice feature, along with the sound deadening material on the inside of the case panels. That material is the reason for the "S" in the P400S model number. There is room at the top for two extra fans and I like the way you can leave the top open, use the magnetic filter panels, or completely cover the top with the included covers.

The quality of the case is similar to the quality I experienced with the Enthoo Primo, meaning that the fit and finish are right at the top with no issues or any indications that corners were cut to save a few pennies. In fact, for the feature set that you get for the $89.99 price tag, you really end up with a nice case that is right at home for a gaming system or just a daily driver. If you are looking for a sub $100 case for your build, then this is one to check out.
