5 out of 5 eggsPhantom Case by NZXT (UPDATED)

This review is from: NZXT Crafted Series Phantom Black/Green Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: This is an extremely solid case. I have had this for just over a year, and haven't had any issues. This case comes with a lot of hard drive options, which is a plus for many people. The HDD sliders are very easy to work with.
The color is amazing. Nothing has faded or broke during the time that I've owned this. With a small child and dog, my case still looks brand new. The plastic is very durable, and keeps its shine.
This case comes with "decent" fans, but most people tend to upgrade regardless.
This comes with a bracket to allow for the installation of a radiator below the 200mm fans up top.

The fan controller is amazing. It is very simple and easy to reach. It is better than having to manipulate toggles on a front plate.

Unlike others, my case came initially with USB 3.0 on top.

This case is high quality. The best case I've ever owned. Its a little heavy, and feels very sturdy. There are rubber grips underneath, which do a great job and preventing any sliding. I have to pick the ends up to adjust the case to make sure it fits straight (OCD, it has to be set up parallel to the wall).

Not sure how, but the case does a good job at muting any internal sounds. I can hear the 200mm fans when they are on full blast, but I cannot hear much else.

Cons: Power LED went out after a year (please see note)

Other Thoughts: My power LED died at just over the 1 year mark. I emailed customer service with my invoice. I immediately received an email within 10 minutes asking for my mailing address. I sent my email at the end of the day Thursday, and I received my package 7 days later. Within an hour of deliver, I was emailed by the customer service rep to ensure I had actually received it (he received a delivery confirmation). The experience was amazing. Between quality and customer service, I will be remain an NZXT customer.

This is a very solid case. I did a case modification and took out the big HDD rack, and inserted the smaller one underneath the CD bay. There has been minimal, if any, instability caused by the removal of the HDD rack. It was riveted in, and the only change in integrety is when all sides are off and I'm working with it. It isn't bad, and I do not feel that the product will collapse. It's simple physics.. Seriously.

The case is huge, but ensure you do your measurements. I have a Corsair heatsink, and it barely fits the side 200mm fan. I had to mount the brackets between the mesh and the door. (You have to shave down the inside of the brackets for it to fit).

Despite all of the intakes on this case, I have very minimal dust. Granted, I clean the case out about once a month or so, but having a dog, I've had other cases fill up much quicker. The airflow is great. Purchasing the FN series 200mm fans is a great upgrade.

The default 200mm LED size is 3.5mm. I installed 5mm and drilled the holes bigger. An idea incase you cannot find 200mm fans in your color scheme.

Lastly, the air pressure for the 200mm fans can backflow into the case. A simple modification is to block off the hole in the top inside portion of the metal case and the front of the top plastic case modling as well. I used plastic from a water jug and taped it in. It isn't even visible when the case is put together. It prevents the air from black flowing. The exhaust air pressure is noticeably stronger. (If you do the same to the bottom of the front piece, it'll stop the front fan from taking in any dirt, dust, or animal hair that might float underneath the case).

Great case, and will definitely purchase another NZXT case when I upgrade in a few years.

(Of note, please track that the FN and FS series fans have been replaced. The new holes of the FZ series 200mm fans will not fit this case.)

4 out of 5 eggsGorgeous Case, Confusing Fans

This review is from: NZXT Crafted Series Phantom Black/Green Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Excellent quality in materials, visually stunning, and TONS of room for components.

This case is absolutely worth the money. I have zero regrets in upgrading to this full size tower from a mid. The finish on the case is fairly durable and the plastic parts don't scratch from basic handling of the case.

Installation of parts was SUPER easy. Everything fit where it should.

Cons: The fans were very confusing, I don't care about using the controller. It came with no instructions on how to hook the fans up to the power supply. This could just be ignorance on my part on how to hook up a fan controller

The fans aren't of the best quality, I would plan and recommend on buying OEM fans with better and quieter bearings.

Other Thoughts: This is a BIG case and it weighs a decent amount. I love seeing it sitting on my desk every day. Worth every penny.

5 out of 5 eggsPhantom ATX CASE

This review is from: NZXT Crafted Series Phantom Black/Green Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: This is a full size ATX cast. with 7 Fans.
Plenty of room to add.I hook Up the Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z, still have lots of room. I love this car.

Cons: no clear window on side for LED lighting.

Other Thoughts: When I bought this case it was a bundle with McAfee, but I did not get the McAfee software. No big Deal.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat tower

This review is from: NZXT Crafted Series Phantom Black/Green Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: great construction and format!
No issues but one and ill explain in "other thoughts"

Cons: fan controller is the biggest con for this tower. if your system fails to turn on, best bet it is your fan controller.

Other Thoughts: to see if it is your fan controller (sliders on top of the tower that speeds up your fans) disconnect the power to the controller and if the system turns on then you need another controller. i have found a good controller that you can get from newegg .http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811992004
this one has five fan controls but if you need a six fan controller here is the other one i considered. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811992012. i only took one egg away for the controller issue. other then that it is a great case.
good luck all.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdated Review

This review is from: NZXT Crafted Series Phantom Black/Green Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: This case is very roomy. Plenty of space for all of the internal extras. the lights aren't too bright, so it's not annoying.
The top fan spots are great, and the fans aren't loud.

Cons: Although I enjoy NZXT fans, the default 200mm with the light is extremely under powered. I will definitely be replacing it.
It would have been nice for it to include all of the necessary fans, specifically the air flow series.

4 out of 5 eggsLarge and relaible

This review is from: NZXT Crafted Series Phantom Black/Green Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: I've had this case for over 2 years now and the Fans and everything still work pretty amazed by that. The amount of space inside is amazing too you could put anything inside there in terms of comp. parts.

Cons: Only Con with NZXT is with the case fans if your going to put more inside don't bothering trying anything else but NZXT brand case fans or else. Nothing but NZXT will fit the screw placements believe me i tried. only ended up wasting 30$ but whatever everything else is reliable and now i have a 200mm casefan wall clock. haha...curse nzxt schemes

Other Thoughts: Great colors and design.

5 out of 5 eggsOne Nice Case!

This review is from: NZXT Crafted Series Phantom Black/Green Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: BIG! Lots of room for expansion. Easy to work with. Runs cool and quiet...a plus for any case. LOTS of extra hardware and some stuff I don't even know what to do with! Just for the record, I'm running an ASUS Sabertooth board with AMD 8120. Currently 750W PSU...soon to be 850 or maybe higher. Arctic Freezer 13 CPU cooler w/92mm fan. Everything fits with room to spare! Upgraded from a Cooler Master Elite mid-tower so I'm quite impressed with the overall construction, looks, and interior space.

Cons: Only thing I can see is the fan control, which I never used before so I went online and found a you-tube tutorial on hooking it up...not really a con, but the instructions weren't too clear on that.

Other Thoughts: Reading some other reviews, I noticed a lot of people said that this case had poor design because the side 120mm fans interfered with the hard drive cables...just FYI for those who may be interested...I turned my drives around so they hook from the opposite side and I have no problems with the fans since the cables are now hidden behind. Just a thought...
