P200A : a Phanteks mini-ITX case in tower format !

This morning, we learn that Phanteks launches a new case on the PC market. Indeed, the brand focuses on the mini-ITX format with its P200A. It’s about a cute case in tower format. Moreover, with its mesh front panel, it should breathe well!

In terms of visuals, the case inherits the design of the Eclipse series cases with their characteristic front panel. Moreover, in order to preserve a certain harmony, the control panel has been moved to the bottom of the front panel. The latter includes two USB 3.0, a USB type C and the usual power and reset buttons and the headphone/microphone jack.

In terms of dimensions, the case displays 205 (W) x 365 (D) x 400 (W) mm. As for weight, it will not be very heavy (ITX obliges), the brand announcing 5.3 kg on the scale.

Inside, we will have room for mini-ITX and mini-DTX motherboards (Crosshair VIII Impact). For the storage, Phanteks announces a rather interesting number of slots considering the format. Indeed, we will be able to mount up to 2x 2.5″ slots against four 3.5″ via optional baskets. Basically, this P200A will host four 2.5″ units and zero 3.5″ hard drives. Even though SSD’s are becoming more and more prevalent, the big mechanical hard drives are still around. That’s a shame.

As far as the power supply is concerned, this case remains compatible with the standard ATX format. Although we can opt for blocks of 205 mm deep, the manufacturer recommends the use of a model not exceeding 19 cm.

For ventilation, there is plenty to do with up to seven slots in 120 mm. These will take place on the front, bottom and side of the motherboard. The last slot is simply located at the back of this model.

Of course, we will be somewhat limited for watercooling. The compatibility with the radiators stops at 240/280 mm. Otherwise, for the aircooling, we find a clearance of 165 mm height, which is not limiting.

Finally, we end with an interesting point: the graphics card (355 mm long). This model offers two options for its mounting: vertical and horizontal. In case of vertical mounting, we will sacrifice the rear fan and limit the space for the CPU fan (from 72 mm to 92 mm). Again, keep in mind that the riser is sold separately.

For prices, Phanteks announces its “Performance” version (without RGB and full side panel with mesh opening) at 49,90 €. The DRGB model, which features two lighted fans and a glass window, will be a bit more expensive: 69,90 €.
