Phanteks has unveiled the Eclipse P600S, a new chassis that it first showed off at CES 2019 earlier this month. While this looks like a pretty ordinary case at first glance, it has an interesting feature that allows you to operate in either a silent mode or a high-performance mode with better airflow. 

This hybrid design is a nice touch of versatility that should help it appeal to a wider audience, and the company expects you to fiddle with the chassis on-the-fly, depending on the task at hand. For instance, you might want to prioritize airflow while gaming, but focus on silence when working on a spreadsheet.

Phanteks enables this through the use of removable, magnetic acoustic panels that you can snap on or off as needed. They're designed to be taken off easily, and there are cutouts so you can get a grip on them quickly. Once removed, the case reveals its mesh design, which Phanteks says comprises a highly breathable technical textile that supposedly allows more air to pass through than regular mesh panels. 

The panels don't cover the entire case though, and are only found on the top and front panels. This means that the side is still tempered glass, so it seems like the sound-dampening capabilities of the case may not be quite the same as a chassis that's fully dedicated to noise reduction.

The Eclipse P600S also comes pre-installed with three 140mm fans and a PWM fan hub for controlling more fans. On the storage front, it will take up to 10 3.5-inch HDDs and three 2.5-inch SSD, shipping with four modular 3.5/2.5-inch HDD brackets and mounts at the rear of the motherboard tray. If you need more storage, you can add up to six more modular 3.5-inch brackets that can be mounted at the front. 

In addition, there's support for both 120mm and 140mm fans, so you can install either a 360mm or 420mm radiator at the front. The top will also hold either a 360mm or 280mm radiator. 

The case will work with vertical GPU mounting as well, so you get a way to show off your card through the side window.

The Eclipse P600S will be available in Satin Black, Anthracite Grey, and Glacier White. However, there's no word on local price or availability yet.
