Good Case

  • Pros: Sleek look fans are quiet clean sleek design
  • Cons: Cooling fan doesn't fit hard drives must be turned backwards so to access you must remove both side panels very irritating. No real way to install card reader only 2 USB ports on top wouldn't buy another

Phantom review

Bryan T., Newegg

  • Summary: price is reasonable, but manufacturer needs to put a better connecter in.
  • Pros: not a bad case, good amount of room, great airflow, looks nice, I recommend this case to anyone looking for a full tower upgrade. i love the horizontal hard drive mounts. makes it easy to manage HHd's. built in fan controller is a plus.
  • Cons: the only con i would say is the low qaulity molex male connector that is built in to the case (power supply for the built in fan controller). the prongs were all messed up and it took forever to get it plugged in, other than that all is good.

Decent, bur not perfect

Brian D., Newegg

  • Summary: more space between hard drive caddy and fans, or lower profile fans would make a good revision, but otherwise an all around solid case
  • Pros: Quite a few fans, lots of work space inside, can hold quite a few drives. Comes with a large selection of screw
  • Cons: In order to fit hard drives in the bays the double fans need to be removed (one can fit in the front of the case, the other second can stay unless you are mounting 6 hard drives). The fan controls don't really work, but isn't a deal breaker (works fine when set to max).

NZXT Phantom

Timothy G., Newegg

  • Summary: I love this case. One of the best cases I have owned and I have owned a lot. It has a unique design and is pretty rugged. I love that they set it up to help with noise and air flow, which in my opinion they did a pretty dang good job at it. I would definitely recommend this to everyone and their mothers.
  • Pros: 1.Case fans on max are very quiet just a mild hum comes from them. 2. Plenty of room for water cooling and everything else you want to cram in it. 3. Hard drive bays are easily taking out and slide right back in plus it is set up to help reduce vibrations which is always nice. 4. Plenty of places to tie all of your cables and wires to keep them from flopping around and for better appearance. 5. Very sturdy case I am not worried about it falling apart or crushing or ev...
  • Cons: This is a minor one but it was a little difficult closing the back side up after I was done with the cable management due to space that is available between the tray and the panel but with a little adjustment and a little push I was able to get it all to work out.

Best Case Ever!!!

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Very innovative, sharp and beautiful design
  • Pros: Very Spacious, extremely quiet, superb cable management. The drive bays easily pop out to accommodate large graphics cards
  • Cons: This isn't eligible for free shipping with Newegg's premium membership. It also doesn't have a side window, which in my opinion would have looked amazing.

User Review

  • Pros: It looks great. This series of case is one that I wanted ever since I bought my computer 4 years ago, but couldn't afford at the time.
  • Cons: Sadly, I didn't receive it (through no fault of NZXT). It was sent to the wrong address and though Newegg called FedEx before delivery to have it turned around, FedEx decided to deliver it anyway. Since its wasn't turned around they won't refund the money. Without the refund I can't reorder.

very decent case with some minor issues

Ryan B., Newegg

  • Summary: There are several older versions that came with only usb 2.0 like I have and a newer version with mostly only front panel usb 3.0. It would be nice if the case came with a internal header adapter for people that don't have USB 3.0 since many people still do not and its very unprofessional to just have 2+ non working usb ports on the front of a custom built computer.
  • Pros: This is a huge case that is at a decent price and holds many components. It can hold a crazy amount of hard drives, the airflow is amazing, it has room for a ton of fans, it can hold many dvd drives, it has many expansion card slots. Wire management is very nice with this case and it has many holes to support whatever type of liquid cooling you want to do.
  • Cons: Since this is a Extended ATX case it would be nice for them to include more slots for expansion cards in the back. Many of us who get this have extended atx gaming rigs and want to even do QUAD sli/crossfire and there simply aren't enough slots in the back depending on the configuration. Also the NZXT fans are VERY cheap. I would highly recommend replacing them since most of them will die a few months after getting them. Personally I got an extra large top case fan so...

Massive Case

Matthew H., Newegg
2 February 2015
  • Summary: Sells at a great price point especially with rebate. This thing is lovely.
  • Pros: This thing is huge, which is great. It's got plenty of room for your 980 or 290s. It's also very sleek and has plenty of fans built in (along with a fan controller). It keeps everything properly cool.
  • Cons: I just cant stress how big this guy is, which isn't a problem for my battle station. But I just think you should be aware.

Fantastic case.

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: This case offers great airflow options, I own this model and white 001- almost zero hassle installs considering the ample space, custom water cooling from its and hidden front panel. he plastic snaps for the case are very sturdy. This case also comes with hanging brackets to mount up to a 240 mm radiator, and provides enough room for a push pull setup AND the ability to use two top mounted 200mm fans in conjunction. I can't stress how good the airflow is.
  • Cons: There are a few real con's, the push pull on the radiator with 200mm fans are kinda cramped. there is a known defect in the fan controller where the 2 120mm side fans would stall out and the light would flash NZXT will ship a new controller at shipping price. (so I've heard.) You can only use certain nzxt 200 mm fans with this case.
