Video Review #1168 Summary

Sponsored by: NZXT
Review category: Cases
Manufacturer info: More info

The NZXT Phantom Case looks like something from out of this world with it's bold styling. There are plenty of drive bays, toolless design, lots of fans, cable management, painted interior, fan controller and it's reasonably priced.

Can you install a 360 rad in the top? I know you only have 2 holes, but with room for 400mm, it should fit.

That is a very nice case. Its just a pity it doesnt have a window in the side panel, if it did I would buy it.

how is the cablespace on the other side?
im just asking since my storm scout case has tight space on the other side :3

anyway seems like its a good case.

the moment you think you did it perfect is the moment you stop improving.

It's about 1/2", so there's enough space for most cables :)

Between $130 - $150. It is currently on pre-order on one or two sites. I really like this case and it's on my short list for my rigs new home.

It's the fault of the courier system we have here in North American. It seems that the delivery people like to smash the @#$## out of just about everything.

Having worked for delivery services DHL, i can see both sides of the issues.

As a consumer, i want my package delivered on time and with no damage. I want that at a good price rate for transport too.

As a former delivery employee, i know that the demand for fast on time service is usually dangerous. They push workers fast and hard to make deadlines and keep pay rates low.

The sad part, most of the damage happens not in transit, but in sort at delivery hubs. Products come in from one area and are sorted into cargo bins for other destinations. Its all on belts, and boxes get stuck. When that happens damage usually occurs.

I do agree with you Rodney, its the system failure. Their need for cheap labor and fast turn-arounds cause carelessness. Its a sad side affect of our need for speed.

On a good note, the last several times i received a package from UPS it was unharmed. Probably because it was trucked and not shipped air.

The white version looks very nice. I dont usualy like cases with plastic doors but this 1 has a very different look. But apon further inspection of the white case, if they painted the inside black and the parts under the mesh black it would look even nicer

ive seen this case reviewed before this is and awesome case great cooling also alot more quiet than my spedo case the although i think that NZXT should have supplied a second 200mm fan also i really dont like the placement of the additional 2 drive bays that looks like a pretty tight fit for your power supply cables thank god it is removeable .also a major 1 up to NZXT for place the dustfilters on the outside of the case you dont see that alot in cases

Most interesting case I've seen since the Raven RV01.

Mac OS X or Windows you ask? I SAY BOTH!
