A Closer Look: Interior

The white with black accents seen on the exterior of the chassis continues on the inside. It’s nice to see that the Eclipse P600S includes a full-length PSU shroud as well as plenty of room to work with. If you have worked with many mid-tower cases, you can see that the P600S has a lot of extra room above the motherboard tray. This probably was done to give you room to install an ITX system in the roof of the case, but if you did go with a single system it should give you enough room for a push/pull 360mm radiator setup.

Phanteks has also done away with the plastic grommets and went with a plastic sliding panel instead. Personally, I much prefer the look of these panels over the traditional grommet, but did wish they were done in steel or aluminum matching the rest of the P600S accessories.

Looking down to the PSU shroud, you have multiple cable cutouts near the back for your motherboard wire as well as a covered cutout for your GPU. Toward the front of the case is a generous cutout giving you room for a push/pull configuration is you wish.

Also, near the front of the shroud is a beveled edge which has been inscribed with “Phanteks”. Its aesthetic additions like this one really gives the case some personality.

The front of the P600S comes with two pre-installed premium 140mm fans but does have room for a third. This also gives you the option to install up to a 420mm radiator in the front of the case.

The back of the P600S also comes with a pre-installed premium 140mm fan.

Going to the back of the P600S, like the front of the case, it also has a magnetic removable hinged panel. This solid steel panel includes sound dampening foam as well as a ribbon near the front to easily open the panel.

If you’re a fan of cable management you will absolutely love the back of the P600S. Phanteks has included many tiedown points on the left and bottom of the case which all include Phanteks branded Velcro straps. Phanteks also provides three 2.5” drive brackets which are located below the motherboard cutout.

The left side has 2 useable cable channels which are held in place with double looped Velcro strips.

By default, the PSU shroud is free of all obstructions and provide plenty of room to tuck away your cables. If you did have some 3.5” drives you wished to install, you can use the included stackable trays and install them in the back half of the shroud.

At the top of the P600S is the included Phanteks fan controller which has support for up to 3 x 3 pin fans and 5 x 4 pin PWM fans. You can expand the number of fans using splitters as long as the total power doesn’t exceed 4A.
