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

Overclockers Approved

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 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!

Discussion
  1. The winner has been contacted. Last contest we ran, we went through three different winners that never contacted us back and had to edit our published congratulatory post several times. We're avoiding that little annoyance for the contest participants this time.

    If you haven't been contacted yet, you're not the winner unless this one never responds to our inquiries. Sorry for the suspense, we hope he/she will respond soon and the announcement can be posted. :)
