Phanteks announces Enthoo Mini XL Dual System
December 2, 2015 // 11:38 a.m.
Phanteks has announced a new variant of its Enthoo Mini XL, designed to make the installation of dual motherboards easier thanks to the pre-installation of a power splitter and mini-ITX upgrade kit.
Designed for those who, for whatever reason, want or need to run two independent PCs but who don't have the space for two towers, the Enthoo Mini XL offers the ability to install two motherboards: one micro-ATX-size for a high-performance rig, and another mini-ITX-size for a lower-power system. Previously, taking advantage of this feature meant buying the case then adding the optional extras yourself - but the new Dual System variant aims to make things easier by doing the hard work for you.
Largely unchanged from the standard Enthoo Mini XL design, the Enthoo Mini XL Dual System pre-installs the Phanteks Power Splitter and Mini ITX Upgrade Kit options previously sold separately. Using these, the case is able to house and run the two motherboards from only one power supply - running either system independently or both simultaneously, so long as your PSU has the power to cope. Everything arrives pre-mounted, meaning that installing motherboards and a power supply is no more difficult than any other case. Two independent front IO panels are also provided, one for each motherboard.
As with its standard predecessor, the Enthoo Mini XL Dual System features hidden power supply and hard drive mounts, a pre-installed ten-colour lighting system, dual removeable hard drive cages, two Drop-N-Lock tool-free SSD brackets, three pre-installed fans with dust filters, cable binders, and a PWM control hub. Those wishing to upgrade the system to liquid cooling will find dedicated pump and radiator brackets in its design.
The Enthoo Mini XL Dual System launches this month, priced at £159.99.
