Dmitry from Hardware Canucks has managed to get Phanteks’ unreleased P200A Mini-ITX PC case in for an exclusive first look. The case appears to be on the larger side from a first look, fitting in around the CoolerMaster MasterBox NR200.
As the case comes in at just smaller than 30 L, it supports a full ATX power supply, 3-slot GPUs with a length of up to 355 mm. There is also a bottom intake with a removable dust filter to allow the GPU to intake cool air. Two 120 or 140 mm fans can be installed on the bottom as well.
Like the larger ITX cases on the market, the P200A can support CPU coolers up to 165 mm tall. A vertical GPU bracket and riser cable can also be purchased if you want to show off your GPU. It will limit your CPU tower height to 94 mm.
The case supports 240 or a 280 on the front, with side mounts for dual 120 mm fans. If you plan to have a radiator and side fans installed, clearances can be an issue.
The front panel is located on the bottom front of the case and comes with two USB-A 3 ports, a USB-C 10 Gbit port, a combo audio jack, and a microphone jack, along with lighting buttons. The power button is located on the top of the case.
The case features a tempered glass side panel with a tool-less design. Dimitry also showed off a prototype mesh side panel that could be released with the case. The mesh looks like the perfect size for a vertical GPU.
When it comes to storage, you can fit up to four 2.5″ drives or four 3.5″ drives and two 2.5″ drives simultaneously when using the correct mounts. To me, the case looks very similar internally to the NEO Mini from Metallic Gear, which happens to be owned by Phanteks.
If you’re interested in Dimitry’s full thoughts on the case and thermals when in use be sure to watch the video below.
