I get a little excited whenever a new case with a price point under $100 is released. When it’s $25 less, I get pretty happy. The Phanteks Eclipse P360A is a mid-tower case that is designed to be used with liquid cooling. It features a dual-chamber design that separates the motherboard and graphics card from the power supply and storage. This allows for better airflow and helps to keep your components cooler. The P360A also has a built-in RGB lighting system that lets you customize the look of your case. It comes with a tempered glass side panel that provides a clear view of your internal components.
Phanteks Eclipse P360A Review
Add a brilliant, vibrant, and plentiful RGB implementation that includes two fans, an LED strip, and a genuinely helpful controller. The Phanteks Eclipse series consists of various enclosures, all of which have a forward-slanting front design.
While some Eclipse cases allow users to choose between a solid or perforated front, the Eclipse P360A only has a vented front. You may, however, select either the black or white edition.
In this review, we will look at the latter, the Phanteks AMP 1000-watt PSU and the Glacier One 360 MPH AIO, both in white. It is a fact that such a liquid-cooler can fit is one of the main differences between the G360A and the P360A, which has a maximum height of 280 mm.
The P360A is also aesthetically pleasing. The case, which comes in a sleek black color, has a distinct minimalistic look that looks great when paired with RGB illumination. The Phanteks themselves include two 120mm PWM fans with RGB lighting. These can coincide with other RGB LED elements using a separate Phanteks controller, and the LEDs can then be controlled using the I/O panel’s RGB-Mode and RGB-Colour buttons. Lighting can also be controlled directly from the motherboard.

The P360A has room inside for an ATX motherboard and long graphics cards up to 400mm (15.75 inches), allowing you to fit compelling gaming systems. Storage options aren’t lavish, but this chassis is not the point. Two 3.5-inch drives can be inserted from the front, and two 2.5-inch drives can be inserted from behind the motherboard tray. You can add a third 2.5-inch drive by purchasing an optional third tray.
The paint job on the inside isn’t as lovely as on the outside, but that’s nothing to worry about.
The radiator-pump combo is without a doubt the AiO cooler’s visual highlight. It has RGB lighting as well as an infinity mirror. In addition, there are 14 digitally addressable RGB LEDs. The lighting effects can be adjusted using the Phanteks RGB controller or software.
The sleeved flexible tubes contribute to the stylish design. The tubes can be easily positioned using the included tube clips. On the CPU contact surface of the Glacier One 240 MP, heat conductive paste has already been prefilled and applied. After mounting, a cover can be magnetically attached to the pump housing. This results in a stylish and clean appearance.
The Phanteks Eclipse P360A is an excellent case for liquid cooling. The dual-chamber design helps to keep your components cool, and the built-in RGB lighting system lets you customize the look of your case.
