Product information - Enthoo Evolv Shift Mini-ITX Gehäuse, Glas - schwarzThe Enthoo Evolv Shift combines the striking design of the Evolv series with new, innovative features to make for a truly eye-catching Mini-ITX case. The Evolv shift has a very small footprint, nevertheless, thanks to its clever layout, it is capable of holding an extensive range of powerful gaming hardware. The shift can also be placed horizontally, cutting an attractive figure in any living room with its combination of aluminium and tempered glass.
The Features of the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv Shift Mini-ITX Case
- Striking aluminium and tempered-glass design
- Perfect case for stylish living room PCs
- Graphics cards up to 35 cm in length
- GPU bracket can be rotated
- Supports a wide range of RGB-LED controllers
- Can be set vertically or horizontally
Premium PC Case for the Living RoomThe Enthoo Evolv Shift offers space for gaming graphics cards up to 35 cm in length and, according to Phanteks, is ideally suited for the installation of AiO water-coolers. With its aluminium surfaces and tempered glass this Mini-ITX case fits seamlessly into any designer living environment and can be placed in a standing orientation, similar to Hi-Fi speakers, or placed horizontally like a games console.
The graphics card is mounted with the accompanying PCIe x16 riser card in such a way as to allow either the backplate or the GPU cooler to be visible from the exterior. The Mini-ITX motherboard is built in parallel to the graphics card with the back panel facing upwards. The ports on the I/O panel as well as the graphics card are hidden beneath a cover to allow all connected cables to be redirected through a gap in the back.
Cooling, Storage & Additional FeaturesA 140 mm fan comes pre-installed from the factory at motherboard height in the Evolv Shift and this helps to exhaust warm air out of the case from the front. Additionally the warm air produced by the hardware is also removed via the vents built into the roof of the case. A 120 mm fan or radiator for an All-in-One watercooler can be installed in the lower section, while a further 120- or 140 mm fan/radiator can be installed in the front.
A 3,5" hard drive or a 2,5" SSD can be installed in the rear and two further SSDs can be located in the front using the SSD brackets - at the expense of the bottom 140 mm fans. The baseplate in the back, used for mounting the SSD/HDD, can also be removed to make hardware installation easier.
For the best view of the RGB-LEDs in the installed hardware the integrated LED lighting is compatible with Aura Sync from ASUS, RGB Fusion from Gigabyte as well as MSI's Mystic Light Sync, all of which can be controlled at the push of a button.
The I/O panel of the Mini-ITX case is located to the left side on the rear of the case and offers two USB 3.0 ports for gaming peripherals or external USB hard drives as well as USB sticks. In typical Phanteks fashion there are several points with Velcro ties as well as rubberised cable guides for cable management in the case design. As well as air vents in the aluminium on the front and rear, there are also dust filters in the casing to offer the system further protection.

*Attention: The first batch of Evolv Shift Series cases are incompatible with specific series of power supplies, in particular those whose construction varies from the standard layout. A support strut on the cutout of the PSU bracket can prevent the power supply from being oriented correctly or, in the worst case, installed at all. An SFX/SFX-L-format PSU is compatible when there is either no on/off switch located on the rear or it is positioned in such a way that it is not located directly next to the connector plug. This notice will be removed as soon as full compatibility with all power supplies can be established in a future revision.
The following power supplies are currently known to be incompatible:
Silverstone ST30F (V1.0)
Silverstone ST45SF (V2.0
All be quiet! SFX PSUs
All Cablematic SFX PSUs
FSP Dagger 600W
The following models provide limited compatibility and can only be installed with the fan facing towards the inside of the case:
Silverstone ST45SF (V3.0)
Silverstone ST30SF (V2.0)

Die Qualität der Seitenteile ist enorm hochwertig. Das eigenständige und einzigartige Design des Phanteks Shift ist überzeugend. Für einen kleinen PC ist das Enthoo Evolv Shift in der Höhe aber doch ähnlich der anderen Midi-Gehäuse. Für den normalen Nutzer sind ein ITX-Mainboard und eine ITX-Grafikkarte keine Reduzierung in der möglichen Leistung. Klar werden selten OC-Rekorde im ITX-Format aufgestellt und die Lüfterbestückung oder Wasserkühlungsoptionen sind begrenzt, doch im Gesamtbild ist das Enthoo Evolv Shift sehr stimmig. Am Deckel sind an den Rillen leichte Verarbeitungsspuren zu erkennen und die Kabelwege sind sehr eng beschnitten.read more...

The build quality is excellent thanks to the winning combination of aluminium and tempered glass, and we think it looks great both horizontally and vertically.
It’s always pleasant to see something different, especially when it’s done well. This isn’t a perfect case, but it is rather unique and on the whole a success. If you’re willing to work with it, you could definitely build a great looking, high-performance custom system inside the Evolv Shift, and that’s something worthy of recognition.read more...
All right, enough about the subjective insights of yours truly. We see something objectively unique, we see a clever and well thought-out product, we see an undeniably neatly high-quality product, and above all we see a new, clever and striking opportunity to create a special build for yourself with a compact footprint on your desk or wherever you want to create something beautiful, whether horizontal or vertical. With some planning, attention and love admittedly, but something else would be inappropriate for a housing like this. Seldom do products achieve perfection, but even less frequently we see products that we become so enthusiastic or fill the geek sentiment as this new Phanteks Evolv Shift X.read more...
