Conclusion: We really can’t complain with the Phantom. It features killer styling and ample room for even the most space-demanding builds. We only wish it were a bit more efficient at whisking away heat with the included fans and provided more space for custom water cooling loops — something any full tower...
Summary: As casemodders we always look at a case and evaluate it based on construction and its ability to accept mods. The case is constructed from high quality steel and painted to match the color you have chosen.
Pros: Artful design, Plenty of Cooling Options, Built in Fan Controller, Three Colors Available
Cons: Very few modding opportunities, Large case with only 7 expansion slots, Door fans with long wires
Excerpt: Dear Icrontic: Your Editor-in-Chief is kind of an idiot sometimes. So much so that he assigned the same review to two separate staffers. Well, no harm, no foul. Here’s an unprecedented second review of the NZXT Phantom full-tower case. Enjoy.
Conclusion: The NZXT Phantom sells for $139.99 , but can often be found on sale for much less. ( Editor note: There’s a promo code on Newegg right now for $20 off: NZXTAP20 ) The price is average among full tower cases, but given the build quality and thought given to keeping cables out of the way, the price of...
Excerpt: The more I played with the NZXT Phantom, the more I liked it. The white finish with its black accents really makes this case stand out from the crowd and the roomy interior was a joy to work in thanks to the excellent cable management.
Excerpt: NZXT have now released a new case called Phantom, whose styling somewhat reminds us of their Lexa S but with a more futuristic styling and larger size. The Phantom is aimed at the full gamut of DIY builders: gamers, enthusiasts and overclockers.
Summary: NZXT has something quite unique on their hands with the Phantom. This is a very well thought through chassis with all the features and space you'll need for a long time. Commendable is the work space, I mean even E-ATX fill fit spaciously.
Summary: There are a lot of things to like about the NZXT Phantom case and as I compiled my list of things I liked it became pretty clear to me that this case was a winner. Probably my top 2 things I liked are the unique design and the reasonable price (available online for ~$139.99).
Pros: Very Unique Design, Lots of Room Inside - Easy Installation, Built-in Fan Controller, Great Value - Affordable MSRP, Available in Multiple Colors (Red, White and Black), Excellent Airflow, 6 NZXT Premium Cables Included, Great Cable Management
Cons: Fingerprint Magnet, Front and top are plastic
Summary: I honestly cannot think of anything bad to say about the NZXT Phantom. After a long stretch of refreshes and no really new products from NZXT, this one really takes the cake and instantly pushes the company back into the spot light.
Pros: Sweet looking design, Spacious interior, Includes four fans, Easy installation of drives, Plenty of cable management possibilities, LEDs can be turned off, Fan controller for every fan within the case, Dust filter on intake fans, Available in three colors (white, black and (soon) red), Can hold l...
Cons: LEDs embedded in fan, The tool-less 5.25 inch system still not as good as screws, Plastic may not be for everyone
Conclusion: The case’s appearance and quality really shined through. One of our favorite features on the case was its built in fan controller. It’s something most people end up buying anyway for their own case. It is also an extremely quiet case, as one would expect with the built in fan controller.
