Endorfy ARX 700 AIR chassis review
We’re checking out the Endorfy ARX 700 AIR, a mainly airflow-oriented mid-sized ATX tower PC chassis. It’s not the first product we’re checking from this Polish company (founded in 2007 in Warsaw). In fact, it was known as SilentiumPC, but because of international expansion – it was changed to Endorfy (in relation to hormones of happiness – endorphins). Their portfolio included the chassis, air/liquid coolers, mice, keyboards, headsets, and mics offered at an attractive price and providing good/high quality. A previous product we covered on guru3d was the Navis F360 AIO (which earned the “Recommended” award).
For €109, the ENDORFY ARX 700 AIR offers excellent value and performance. Whether a gamer or a PC enthusiast, this chassis is designed to keep your system running cold. It’s a (rather extensive) mid-tower chassis with around 52.3 l of volume. The looks are rather mediocre, not standing out in the market. We’ll find the five 140 mm (max 1200 rpm) fans, three at the front, one at the top, and the fifth at the back. There is a tempered glass panel on the left side.
There are no color versions; it’s “only” black, but there’s also the ARGB version available (for 10 EUR more). The exact dimensions are 486 × 228 × 472 (H×W×L) in total; it’s 52.3 l of volume, so that’s in the higher end of the mid-tower chassis. The ARX 700 AIR supports up to ATX (and uATX and mini-ITX) motherboards – there’s no E-ATX compatibility (but that shouldn’t be an issue). According to the specs, one 3.5” or up to seven 2.5” drives are supported. On the front, you will find the following ports:
- USB 3.0 x 2,
- USB 3.2 Type-C x 1
- Audio and Mic Jack
- Power button
- Reset/LED button
The Endorfy ARX 700 AIR provides many cooling options, and supporting radiators:
- 360 mm at the top
- 360 mm at the front
- and 120 mm at the back.
It’s possible to mount up to eight fans.
- up to two 120 or two 140 mm fans at the side,
- three 120 mm at the top,
- one 120 mm at the rear (and the 1300 rpm is pre-installed),
- one 120 or 140 mm fan at the bottom (and one 120 mm 1300 rpm is pre-installed)
There are three dust filters - at the front, top, and bottom. You also get seven expansion slots.
First - let’s check out the specs and features of this chassis. You can use CPU air coolers with a max height of up to 179 mm (which should fit practically all models). The GPUs can measure up to 410 mm in length. The PSU shouldn’t be longer than 340 mm. The price is 109.99 EUR for the non-RGB version and 119.99 EUR for the one with the lighting (and fewer fans, as it has four, not five units). The warranty period is 36 months (not so standard in this segment). Will it be worth that price?
