    Overclockers.com Review

    Here are our conclusions from when we reviewed this case a few months back:

    For $139.99 at Newegg, this case is a steal. There was almost nothing negative to say about this product, mind you it is my job to look at these products critically. Installation was smooth, especially with screwless 5.25" bays and thumbscrews in the expansion slots. It was also great not to have to wire up my own fan controller setup, the Phantom was already wired and ready for use. If you are in the market for a new case, the NZXT Phantom will not disappoint.

    Pros
    • Durable steel construction
    • Cooling Friendly Design: four included fans, plenty of mounts for fans of different sizes, space for watercooling equipment and tubing cutouts on the back of the case
    • Mesh all over the case helps airflow, but stops dust from entering the case (included fan filters block dust as well)
    • Easy-to-mount HDD/SSD and screwless 5.25" drives
    • Wire management holes and plenty of space to hide wires
    • Stylish, futuristic looks
    • Added value in integrated five-channel fan controller and seven fan filters

    Cons
    • Drive bay door does not lock into place
    • Difficult to decipher RPM with fan controller

    Other Prizes
    Two others will be chosen at random to receive a sleeved LED kit from NZXT, with adjustable brightness. The LEDs are on a flexible sleeved cable, allowing for placement throughout the case and even behind/under components, which makes this a more versatile than your average cold-cathode.


    Winner will be chosen at random and notified via private message on the forums. Good luck to all participants!

    I've never paid $139 for a case, but this one sounds like it may be worth it. It is certainly worth it if I win it!

    All ppd from friends and family. Many thanks to HayesK for his support and congrats on being the #1 Folder on Team 32. Special thanks to ChrisC and ColinC
