Default Fractal Design Define R5 VS Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV ATX

Hello.

I watched your video to help me make decision, it s great video between.

But still uncertain which case to choose.

The Fractal Design Define R5 mainly for the silence.

The Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV ATX for the more advanced features.

So since you used it both which one u prefer ?

And is the Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV ATX also quite ?

HERE IS MY FUTURE BUILD.

Thanks for the help

Ive been looking at a new chassis myself. And so far everything I look at, I come back to the R5. That case seems to have it all.

I can't speak about the R5, but I have an EVOLV ATX on my desk. There's good reasons why Dmitry named it the case of the year. It's the nicest case I've ever worked in. That being said, if your focus is silence, I find that I do hear the PWM controlled front fans. Maybe it's because they change speed that I notice them more. This should resolve itself when I get a watercooling loop in place though.

i went for an R5 myself just last month. But the Phanteks looks pretty sweet. I'm sure you'll be happy either way! :)
