At the consumer electronics fair CES 2022, Phanteks presented a very curious computer case – the Evolv Shift XT model, which will go on sale next month.
The novelty can be converted between three sizes. The idea is that users can change the height of the case depending on how their computer is configured. So if you are installing a powerful graphics card, you can choose the medium mode to improve airflow. And with the addition of a radiator for the liquid cooling system, the third mode with the maximum height is suitable.
The case is designed for mini-ITX mainboards. The panels are made of 2.5 mm thick anodized aluminum. Perforations are provided to cool the installed components.
As is well known, the new product allows the installation of three-slot graphics accelerators up to a length of 325 mm. The graphics card can be installed vertically.
It is important to note that the Evolv Shift XT does not have a motorized transformation system. The user selects the desired height when assembling the computer. However, the configuration can easily be changed later.
The Satin Black and Galaxy Silver versions are available for sale. Estimated price – 170 euros.
