The case is gigantic, but I think the implementation of the "two systems in one enclosure" concepts works a lot better here, than with the matx/mitx setup of the Mini XL case.

On a sidenote, InWin and Phanteks seem to be fighting for the "best looking case" award:

Inwin 605

Definitely has a Phanteks look and feel to it, cool case but I would imagine the market for such a huge/premium case is pretty small. I wish Phanteks would release a compact atx cube case.

This case is now known as the Enthoo Elite and is being listed at $699 US.
Sorry Phanteks but at that price it needs to be all aluminum and have extremely good quality build.
Other wise at this price range I'd just get a case labs custom ordered, or Hex Gear, or Parvum. So many options high quality cases in this price range.

WTF? $700?!

It looks like your standard stamped steel case. ANY case w/ that price better well be 100% aluminum. It honestly looks like a standard $250 case.

Meh too much of a fan of this case. That price tag is just killing it. I was hoping Phanteks would release a MATX case that would be affordable. The EVOLV MATX had bad IO and was expensive (in Canada.) This only case that's doing great with budget builders is the P400. Even then, I find it to be quite big. Would love to see Phanteks to release another ITX or MATX that's affordable.
