Excerpt: The Phantom 410 inherits the good looks of its full-tower predecessor but adds some tweaks of its own. It’s a great-looking case in any color (we’ve used white and red for builds), but the gunmetal gray is spectacular. The paint is thick and luxurious to the touch, enough to give the Phantom 410 a much better feel than the MSI Ravager , which uses similar chassis tooling.
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 Crafted Series Phantom 410 Mid-Tower Computer Case Review
14 February 2012
Summary: In its basic configuration, the NZXT Phantom 410 is much like it’s bigger Phantom sibling but has a bit less air flow. It does its best work with at least one more fan either on the side or bottom of the case which directs air directly on the system. That alone helps control noisy coolers and drops overall system temps.
Excerpt: Let's be real honest here. In the realm in which I live, as a reviewer, there is a level of trust that develops as you work with companies over the years. As a guy that is in the position to recommend things to others, I take that aspect seriously. When I put my "seal of approval" on it, I mean it!
Summary: NZXT has proven to still have some punch in it when they presented the NZXT Phantom. The Phantom 410 is not only a much needed smaller version of the successful case, but also a case at that magical 100 Euro price point. The case clearly has the same genes as its bigger brethren and manages to offer the same great design and functionality we have seen in the taller version.
Due to the compact size, some elements had to be changed to fit the entire concept.
Pros: Sweet looking design, Spacious interior even though it is smaller than the Phantom, Includes three fans, Easy installation of drives, Plenty of cable management possibilities, Simple fan controller for up to four units, Available in three colors (white, black and (soon) red), Can hold large graphics cards and CPU coolers, Possibility to install a fan in the interior, Can hold a 240 or 280 mm radiator, Thumb screws for expansion slots, Meaningful tool-less systems, Inf...
Cons: LEDs embedded in fan, The tool-less 5.25 inch system still not as good as screws, Simple dust filter in the underside, No dust filter in the front, Larger grain metal mesh in front than on the Phantom, No magnets to hold the door in place - a plastic clip instead, Plastic may not be for everyone
[Day One] NZXT Phantom 410, due filosofie si uniscono in un ottimo case mid tower
23 March 2012
Excerpt: Vi presentiamo in esclusiva un nuovo case prodotto da NZXT, nello specifico parliamo di un modello appartenente alla serie che nel giro di poco tempo è diventata la punta di diamante della compagnia grazie al design mozzafiato e ad una elevata versatilità. Il Phantom 410, come si può intuire dal nome, segna l'unione tra due correnti di pensiero, quella minimalista e compatta dei case 410 e quella da hardcore gamers del Phantom.
