Summary: To test the fit of the Phantom 410 we installed an ASUS Rampage IV Extreme motherboard with a Thermaltake Frio Advanced CPU cooler. The Frio Advanced heatsink is a larger unit measuring in at 130(L) x 130(H) x 25(W) mm.
Pros: Beautiful finish inside and out, Outstanding cable management, Multiple cooling options, Near tool-less design, Fans are efficient and quiet, Included fan controller
Cons: No external 3.5" option, Heavy at 9 kg. (~20 lbs.), Left side hinged door
NZXT Phantom 410 Special Edition Mid-Tower Case Review
Hi Tech Legion
15 May 2012
Summary: The NZXT Phantom 410 was an excellent performer in almost all aspects. The Phantom 410 SE had excellent airflow at all fan speeds and provided excellent thermal characteristics with minimal noise.
Pros: Outstanding Exterior Finish, Top LED Fan Provides Great In Case Glow, Clearance for multiple video cards longer than an HD6990, Tool-less PCI-E and 5.25” drive mounting, Three fans pre-installed with built-in 3-step fan controller, 240/280mm radiator mounting support at the top, Five more additio...
Cons: No dust filters for the front intake and side panels, Rubber grommets for cable routing come off easily, Drive caddy design obstructs 90 degree power and SATA cables when a 2.5" drive is installed, Fan Controller Leaves Behind A Glut of Wires If You Are Not Using It
Summary: I began my build by installing my CPU and heatsink before I installed the motherboard. Even though the NZXT Phantom 410 has a large hole in the motherboard tray to facilitate installation of after-market heat sinks, I still find it much easier to install these before dropping the board in the...
Conclusion: The original Phantom was a highly awarded case and it was a logical move for NZXT to make a smaller version of this popular case. The newcomer features the same, very unique and cool looks, packs a LOT of optional cooling and can also take all the longest graphic cards.
Pros: Unique looks, Fan controller, Lots of optional cooling
Cons: No dust filters, A bit 'plasticky', Small frame
NZXT Phantom 410: The Boutique Favorite Goes On a Diet
19 March 2012
Conclusion: Now there's a conclusion I'll admit I was surprised to come to: the NZXT Phantom 410 is fun (possibly funny) to look at, but despite being kind of a pain to assemble it's actually a remarkably capable enclosure and definitely ranks among the better ones we've had in house.
Summary: If you are looking for a great case that will last you a lifetime, then I suggest that you give the Phantom 410 a look. The Phantom 410 will be a great case for liquid cooling enthusiast and amateur builders alike.
NZXT Phantom 410 Special Edition Case Video Review
21 February 2012
Summary: The NZXT Phantom 410 Special Edition Case is available in Black with Orange Trim, Black with White Trim, White with Blue Trim, and a surprise Gunmetal black edition with a gunmetal interior and exterior matte finish. It looks sexy, but is smart as well!
Excerpt: The case market is constantly being bombarded with low quality cases, whether they are poorly made, don’t function well, or just look terrible. So it was refreshing when we were able to work wit NZXT’s Phantom back in July 2010.
Summary: The NZXT Phantom 410 mid-tower case performed extremely well in terms of looks, functionality and thermal performance, with a few minor inconveniences.
The original NZXT Phantom full-tower case set the bar quite high and introduced a new standard of quality, compared to previously seen NZXT cases.
Pros: Clearance for multiple video cards longer than an HD6990, Tool-less PCI-E and 5.25” drive mounting, Three fans pre-installed with built-in 3-step fan controller, 240/280mm radiator mounting support at the top, Five more additional fan mounting options, 19-pin USB 3.0 header, Clearly labeled acces...
Cons: No dust filters for the front intake and side panels, Rubber grommets for cable routing come off easily, Drive caddy design obstructs 90 degree power and SATA cables when an SSD drive is installed
NZXT Crafted Series Phantom 410 Mid-Tower Computer Case Review
14 February 2012
Summary: In terms of design, I have yet to meet anyone who doesn't like the elegant curves of Phantom. However, quite a few users wanted a smaller case with a window to show off their elite components yet with nearly, if not all of the features in the original Phantom. That sounds like a tall order.
Pros: Great standard features: cut outs, wire management, fan control and tooless drive bays, Supports dual 120/140mm radiator, Adjustable fan shroud, Attractive design, good quality build and in multiple colors too!, Only $99 or less price tag
Cons: Could use one more intake fan, Adjustable fan could be located elsewhere
