3 out of 5 eggsGreat case, horrible fans.

Pros: This case is sleek and big, it looks good and can fit everything into it that I need to fit.

Cons: Cons:
- NZXT only fans. I've had to purchase at least 6 fans for this case. The first 3 fans I purchased from NZXT were all broken upon delivery. After returning them and getting new fans sent to me I installed them in my case, well, tried.
After attempting to install a 200mm fan on the side of my case I realized that it wasn't the right -type- of fan and the holes where the screws are supposed to go don't line up with where they go in the case.
After purchasing the correct fan, with the correct holes for screws, I was able to install my side and top fans with little to no hassle.
The fan I purchased for the top of my case, the Rifle Bearing FN 200RB, has ceased to work due to bad wiring. I contacted NZXT to replace my fan and they sent me the wrong fan, they sent me the fan where the holes for the screws don't line up. Now I'm in an endless battle with them trying to prove that the fan they sent me is too big and the screws don't go where they need to, via picture messages in emails.
-The cooling unit slot, as people have mentioned before, isn't cut properly so you have to unmount your entire motherboard and attach your cooling unit to the motherboard before placing it in the case.

Other Thoughts: If you could purchase fans for this can from other companies, it would be a top of the line, amazing purchase. Though in order to function, cases need fans, when the fans you receive are confusing or not the right size it becomes a hassle. NZXT should think about moving to more universal fans to satisfy their customers.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, Valued NZXT Customer

We do apologize for the inconvenience, The original phantom case was implemented to work only with our FN series fans and for the 200 mm fan it was a unique mm that was 193mm which was the reason it did not fit. If at all you have any issues or parts do break please visit our website at support.nzxt.com which you would be able to submit a parts replacement. We would also need an invoice on file as well with the request. If you a question or concerns please let us know you can contact us directly at +1-800-228-9395.

Kind regards,
NZXT Support.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent Case, Bad Company.

Pros: - As stated many times, Great airflow even topping some of my more expensive cases.
-Decent Cable Management space
-Removable dust filter that is easily cleaned
-Decent look and the size is actual internal size not case size so your getting what they tell you.
-Side Panels open suicide door style making it easier to manage cables etc

Cons: -Very cheap plastic for the snap on front and top accents to the case.
- In fact the whole case is very cheap plastic
- Cutout for aftermarket CPU coolers is too small for all 3 of my coolers. (Had to unscrew the motherboard and put the back plate on first.)
- Even when in sleep mode has a very bright green LED on the case that flashes. (Not a big deal if it's not in your bedroom)
-For such a large case it has very terrible USB options on the front and top. (Knew before purchasing though)

Other Thoughts: On the whole I am satisfied with the case I do sometimes wish I would have gone with another but this case will last a long time as long as you take care of it. The biggest issues I have run into besides little things like the cheap plastic and LED lights that stay on are the following:
The side panels have a small indent that slides under the inside of the case to help secure it. Problem is the plastic is so cheap that it bent on mine the first time I took it off and I had to bend it back as flat as I could to get it to fit in the small groove that it rests in.
Bought 2 fans from NZXT a 200MM for the side and the 140 for the front. Both fans came with screws that were to big to even screw into the fan let alone the case, and were too short to even fit trough the fans if they were the correct size. I contacted NZXT and was told they would give me a call back. Still have not heard from them 2 weeks later.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, Valued NZXT Customer

We do apologize for the inconvenience, yes the case is made out of ABS plastic which is the front and top panels for the case. It was the only way we would have been able to achieve the curves for the case itself. The placement of the USB connectors were implemented at the top to give it a sleek and futuristic design to allow users to plug in there devices with ease. Depending on the type of coolers and the recommended specs with certain coolers you might have a problem or not. If at all you have any issues or parts do break please visit our website at support.nzxt.com which you would be able to submit a parts replacement. We would also need an invoice on file as well with the request. If you a question or concerns please let us know you can contact us directly at +1-800-228-9395.

Kind regards,
NZXT Support.

5 out of 5 eggsOne small inconvenience - but there is USB 3.0

Pros: Lost of room and plenty of places for cable management and peripherals.

One USB 3.0 port on the front/top

Cons: Open the back panel and the rear of the motherboard is exposed just behind the CPU to allow easy installation of aftermarket coolers. The problem is the cut out area is not big enough to expose the mounting holes on the left for a Z97 motherboard.

Other Thoughts: More Details about the CPU cooler problem. I have an ASRock Z97X Killer board, thinking it might have just been bad design by ASRock I checked other boards and all Z97's are in the same spot. To mount my Corsair H50 cooler I had to take the motherboard out despite the convince cutout in the case. It was only a minor inconvenience so I'm not going to take a star.

The added bonus is the USB 3.0 port up front. The details mention there are two 2.0 ports, but one of those ports is actually a 3.0 with 20 pin header. This might be a problem for some if they are looking to upgrade their case and their current system does not have a 20 pin header.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad when on sale

Pros: Massive! I can literally fit the tower from my last PC inside this case. Lots of room. The acomadation of larger fans ensures plenty of airflow for hot builds. The case I recieved had been updated to include one USB 3.0 port even though the description doesen't mention this, a pleasent surprise!

Cons: The 200 mm fans are specific to NZXT. Other manufacturor fans won't fit unluss you are willing to modify or rig them. Also, after extensive checking, it appears that NZXT is moving away from this particular patern of fan. I am concerned about ongoing availability of replacement fans. The case is quite nice and should last a very long time, but if they ever stop making these fans it could become a real headache.

Other Thoughts: I'm pretty handy with tools and have modofied everything from book shelves to cars. Drilling hole to mount a more standard fan shouldn't be a big problem if it ever becomes necessary. Just a disapointment and nusance. Really wanted to use LED lit fans. In reading other comments it sounds like lights could be added with minimul dificulty to the propriatary NZXT fans.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Full Tower

Pros: High air flow, Amazing space inside and of course Epic Looking.

Cons: None to be had so far

Other Thoughts: With the fan speed manipulation settings on the top of the case you are easily able to guide how the air flows to keep your rig at the perfect temperature even which your GPU(s) and CPU(s) are peaked.

2 out of 5 eggsBad powerswitch on arrival

Pros: Sweet looking case, cable management was awesome.

Cons: Put entire computer together. Only to find out that the power switch on the pantom was bad. Would only spin up if holding the power button. Attached it to another computer and everything inside spun up fine. Not too happy at all. Now have to wait forever for newegg to RMA a new one too me.

Other Thoughts: Hope the next case actually works.

4 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely great!

Pros: Great space has a sleek look to it and the fans are quiet.
Took the top 200mm fan out and installed a dual radiator Liquid cooler and it fit easily. I then installed the 200mm LED fan on the side looks good and provides excellent airflow that is silent.

Cons: Gets dusty fast but easy to clean. A LOT of air flow.

Other Thoughts: Love it. would recommend to anyone looking for a case for their upcoming gaming rig.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid case with a few issues

Pros: This case stays cool. Honestly it is a solid case with the preen-stalled fans in the case. There really is no reason to install any more fans unless you really want to. They are Quality NZXT fans with a little noise which is adjustable on the top of the case. Led fan button on the back was a nice touch to the case. Would highly recommend this case to anyone needing a full tower case especially if it is on sale.

Cons: the case had some issues with the fan controller led's coming on and off. The case also has an issue with some of the aftermarket fans that i had wanted to put on the case. If you are planning on adding any 200mm fans for the top or the side it is HIGHLY advised to buy the nzxt fans to put them in. I really had some issues installing the 200mm top fan and the 200/230mm side fan. (another note if you decide to install the side fan it is HIGHLY recommended to install a 200 mm fan because you will have some issues trying to install a 230mm fan. But if you find this case on sale it is a great buy for the price!!!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: Cool design. Sturdy. A ton of space.

Cons: Some fans/lights do not want to work.

Other Thoughts: No complaints other than the fact that I have three inactive case fans because I don't know where to plug them in. Probably my fault, but it's still a great case.
