Phanteks Eclipse P350X Review

Günstiger Midi-Tower mit RGB-Beleuchtung und Hartglas-Seitenpanel

Workmanship

With a price of € 64.95 the Phanteks Eclipse P350X is clearly in the entry-level class – especially with the rich feature set! Nevertheless Phanteks knows how to convince as always with quality. The case is made of plastic and glass, steel and not aluminium, but the workmanship is neat and the case is surprisingly light.

Of course, you have to make slight compromises. In my opinion, the power button doesn’t have an ideal pressure point, but can still be operated without restrictions. The buttons to control the lighting have a better pressure point.

Inside, while building the system, there will also be some further points of criticism to be found, which we will discuss later. These concern less the workmanship, but rather the conception of the housing.

Equipment

The Phanteks Eclipse P350X Midi-Tower offers like most Midi-Towers a very good hardware support. Up to 40 cm long graphics cards and 160 mm high CPU coolers can be used. A 120 mm fan is already pre-installed, but it is not yet sufficient for a good airflow. But it’s also a cheap case.

The housing is only partially suitable for water cooling. A large radiator can only be installed in the front. Although there is (theoretically) enough space on the top for two 140 mm fans, the distance to the mainboard is too small for a radiator to fit there. Even for fans it’s getting tight.

Removable holders or similar, as you know it from the top models of Phanteks, are of course not found in this case. This is only possible with the hard disk holders. These are also decoupled, by the way.

But you don’t have to do without dust filters. These can be found both under the power supply unit and in the front. A magnetic grid is placed on the top, which can be easily removed. But also the other filters are easily and quickly dismantled for cleaning.
