Pros This case has an abundance of room even with large gpu's. Grommets in motherboard plate give good routing options to keep build clean and tidy. Added front fan and the other 2 200mm fans and airflow keeps everything cool.
Cons No USB 3 ports on front panel, hope NZXT offers an accessory to switch out current ports, also would have like firewire on front but not that big of deal
Summary Easy case to build system in, good wire routing options. would recommend especially if con's listed above were included.
Pros lots of room good looking good cable management hdd trays are nice
Cons flimsy latch on drive bays (one broke right away)
Summary The case looks great, the paint on the front is nice. There is lots of room so you can make it very neat and stick a lot of hardware in there. The drive bay latch is flimsy so you have to be very careful with it. In my case it doesn't matter because I'll have a blu-ray drive in there anyways.
Summary J'ai voulu essayer un full tower. J'ai toujours eu du médium. Wow c'est vraiment bien fait. On peu cacher nos fil pour libérer le boitier, la ventilation est parfaite avec les fans de base. Toute les fans peuvent être régler manuellement. Je déplore seulement qu'ils auraient plus nous donner une fans supplémentaire éclairer led sur le dessus et les deux de côté ne sons pas éclarer non plus dommage. Mais pour le reste c'est super!
Summary I love this case! I bought it because it looks awesome, and to this day, I am still happy I made the purchase. The only bump that I ran into was that it couldn't fit XL ATX boards (specs did not say it could, so that was my fault). Besides that, this is an awesome case to have!
Pros Sexy. The fan options are awesome, as well as the ability to expand your system for future motherboard upgrades.
Cons Doesn't come with a 3.5in adapter for a cardreader to mount into a 5.25 bay. Unfortunate, so you'll need to adapt for an external option. Case seems to only support NZXT branded fans. a 200mm fan is quite a bit smaller than the NZXT 200mm fan. My guess is how they measure it. (unit width vs. blade diameter?).
Guess i will have to shop NZXT for the optional fans. A bit of an inconvenience.
Summary I like the Phantom. Quite an awesome case. I have the black model, wish I could have the white model. And I've the red model in person, it actually looks the color of the photos online *kinda wish i got the red as well ;)*
The NZXT Phantom is an interesting option for the user who wants a case with tons of features at an affordable price. The overall construction quality, however, can’t be compared to the one found on more expensive products, and therefore if you are freak about quality, you should look for a differen
