Phanteks Eclipse P300: The Popular Eclipse Series Just Got Smaller!
Phanteks' Eclipse P300 Midi-Tower retains the best aspects of this successful series while adding a variety of incremental improvements. In this respect the Eclipse P300 case is targeted at beginners while also offering plenty of interesting features for experienced PC enthusiasts. In direct comparison to the Eclipse P400 the Eclipse P300 is markedly smaller while retaining more than adequate space for powerful gaming hardware and supporting up to the E-ATX form factor. With a backlit RGB-LED power button as well as an additional LED strip on the left side, the Dutch company offers a range of possibilities when it comes to colour.
The Phanteks Eclipse P300 also offers space for graphics cards up to 33 cm in length and five fans, a tool-free hard drive installation as well as compatibility for installing radiators e.g. AiO water-cooling in the front. Its combination of great design and hardware compatibility shows the P300 Midi-Tower to be a case that has been designed from the ground up to make a great gaming PC.

LED Lighting & Superb Hardware Support: Why Buy a Phanteks Eclipse P300
Apart from the sleek and stylish design of the Eclipse P300, the new case from Phanteks comes with built-in RGB lighting. As in the Eclipse P400 the power button is also illuminated, although in this case the additional lighting makes its way to the side of the front of the large tempered glass window. The RGB lighting can be controlled at the push of a button or via an optional link to an ASUS-, Gigabyte- or MSI motherboard. To make hardware installation as easy as possible the case comes with Velcro cable ties and 35 mm of space for cable management. A PSU shroud separates the drive bays and the PSU from the visible area of the case.
Of particular interest to beginners here will be the pre-installed fan to the rear (1x 120 mm), which ensures great airflow through the case without requiring any major changes in terms of your choices in gaming hardware. An additional feature of the Eclipse P300 case is to be found in the removable dust filters in the front, roof and beneath the power supply.
