Product Description

Phanteks Evolv Shift Air Mini-ITX Case - Black

The Enthoo Evolv Shift Air combines the striking design of the Evolv series with new, innovative features such as optimised airflow in an attractive Mini-ITX form factor case. The Evolv Shift Air keeps a remarkably small footprint, yet thanks to its clever layout, remains more than capable of supporting high-end gaming hardware. The Shift Air can also be set in a different orientation, and this is then combined with the attractive use of aluminium and fine mesh surfaces to make it an attractive feature of any living room or home cinema setup. Specially developed by PHANTEKS, the mesh fabric covers extend across much of this stylish case, meaning that all your gaming hardware is kept supplied with cool, fresh air. The mesh surfaces also double up as dust filters.


  • Striking design with aluminium and fine mesh fabric
  • Perfect case for stylish living room PCs
  • Graphics cards up to 35 cm long
  • GPU bracket can be rotated
  • Supports various RGB-LED controllers
  • Can be set vertically or horizontally

Premium PC Case for the Living Room

The Enthoo Evolv Shift Air offers space for gaming graphics cards up to 35cm in length and, according to PHANTEKS, the case has been specially designed with the use of two AiO water coolers in mind, where the radiators are 120 mm in size. With its aluminium and mesh surfaces, the Mini-ITX case fits seamlessly into any designer living room. Furthermore, it can be set vertically or horizontally - meaning it can easily pass for a HiFi system. Fresh, cool air can be pulled in through the mesh coverings on the case, while the mesh itself is so tightly woven that it also acts as a dust filter.

The graphics card is mounted with the assistance of the included PCIe x16 riser cable, meaning that either the backplate or the GPU cooler can be seen from the outside depending on your preference. The Mini-ITX motherboard is mounted in parallel to the graphics card with the back panel facing upwards. The ports on the I/O panel as well as the graphics card are cleverly concealed beneath a cover, and this has the added benefit of concealing much of the cabling which is then guided through an opening and on into the back of the case.

Cooling, Storage & Additional Features

A pre-installed 140 mm fan in the Evolv Shift Air pushes warm air from the front and side panels out of the case, while the air inlets in the roof also contribute to the case's overall excellent cooling.

A 3,5"- or 2,5" SSD can be installed at the back and two further SSDs can be installed in the front with the help of the bundled SSD brackets - at the expense of the 140 mm fans of course. The rear panel on which the SSD/HDD is mounted can be removed to make hardware installation even easier.

The I/O panel of the Mini-ITX case is located to the left side on the back of the case and offers two USB 3.0 ports for gaming peripherals or external USB hard drives and USB sticks. In order to put your hard-earned hardware on show in the best possible light, the case includes an RGB controller that can be controlled at the touch of a button. As we have come to expect from PHANTEKS, there are multiple points within the case that include velcro loops for cable management as well as rubberised cable pass-throughs. The bottom and top of the case, as well as the air inlets on the aluminium covers to the rear, all include additional dust filters that help keep your system looking and running its best.
