The cases of the Eclipse series from PHANTEKS are designed to be beginner friendly while also offering features that will appeal to the more experienced PC building crowd. The Eclipse P360X Midi-Tower is designed to offer a clean and sleek aesthetic, while bringing some fresh RGB-lit style to the front, taking a degree of inspiration from modern cards in this respect. The large air inlets ensure excellent airflow, with three dust filters together helping to keep the interior of the case as clean as the day you bought it. Of course, no gaming PC would be complete these days without the addition of a tempered glass side panel, meaning that your hard-earned gaming hardware gets the opportunity to look its best.
THE FEATURES OF THE PHANTEKS ECLIPSE P360X AT A GLANCE:

- Plenty of space for air- or water cooling
- Graphics cards up to 400 mm long, CPU coolers up to 160 mm tall

STYLISH SHAPE & DESIGN
The trapezoid front has two cut-outs with acrylic glass covers, behind each of which lies a strip with digitally addressable RGB-LEDs. These ensure an unmistakably futuristic look that takes after modern automotive design in terms of its inspiration e.g. LED headlights. In the top and bottom of the case lie large air vents, meaning that the optional 120- or 140 mm fans located behind them are kept well-supplied with fresh air. A removable filter helps to keep the case clean and free of dust.
The rear of the case includes a pre-installed 120 mm fan in the single slot available. The roof allows for either two 120 mm- or two 140 mm fans. Radiators will also fit in the Eclipse P360X, with radiators in the roof being limited to 240 mm, and up to 280 mm in the front. The rear allows for a 120 mm radiator should you prefer. Apart from the dust filter on the front, there are several more present that can be slid in and out as needed with minimum effort due to PHANTEKS' thoughtful integration of magnets.
Powerful hardwarewill be well taken care of in this case given the amount of cooling options available. The interior of the Eclipse P360X allows for motherboards up to E-ATX in format, although the boards themselves may not be wider than 280 mm. The processor you install is limited to using a CPU cooler of up to 160 mm in height. Graphics cards also have plenty of space, given that they can be up to 400 mm in length if you so choose. Regular ATX-format power supplies have 250 mm of space to play with underneath the PSU shroud. This not only hides unattractive cabling, it also has the added benefit of concealing the HDD bays.
3,5- or 2,5" hard drives can be installed into the front of the case by means of the two bundled sleds in the HDD cage. For 2,5" drives on the other hand, a total of three slots is also available for use on the reverse of the motherboard tray. Two brackets are included. An additional 2,5" SSD bracket is available as an optional accessory from PHANTEKS directly, as is a replacement for the total of seven PCI slots which can be replaced with a bracket for supporting vertical GPU mounting.
At the top of the case and on the left, users will find the I/O panel complete with both LED controllers, one of which controls the RGB effects of both RGB-LED strips at the front, and the other the range of colours. There are also two USB 3.0 ports present, the nowadays almost ubiquitous audio jacks, and of course the centrally located power switch.
