Video Review #1299 Summary

Review category: Cases
Manufacturer info: More info

The NZXT Phantom 410 Case looks sexy, but is smart as well! This case has lots of drive bays, fans, cable management, cooler hole, tool-less design and is available in three different colors. If you in the market for something different I'd take a look at this case.

I noticed you've reviewed both the Phantom case and the Phantom 410. I love the look of both of them and was wondering which one you would recommend. Some reviewers seem to be seeing the 410 as a smaller version of the phantom for people with less space, and others seem to see the 410 as the new and improved version, what do you think?

I have no space issues. I slightly prefer the look of the 410 and I Like the window on it, but the spring loaded thumbscrews on the original phantom seem nice too. Can't decide! What are the pro's con's?

Thanks! :D

Hi,

Just wanted to know, have you personally used the NZXT Phantom 410? I saw your review on it, and just wanted to know if you'd recommend it after a while of using it? Just as I'm thinking of getting one in the new build I'm getting soon.

Thanks a lot,
Robbie :)

I was wondering, will this case fit a CoolerMaster V6 GT? I currently have a Zalman Z9 Plus and I cannot close the side panel, I have it open.

Late reply, I know, but I can confirm that it does fit, but only just.

I rebuilt my computer in this case today and I have a V6GT.

There is only a small space between it and the side panel

It doesnt fit if you have the fan on the inside

The fans are fine on top. The top panel has enough room to still fit on perfectly

I saw this a couple months ago and thought it was a phantom case mod then got word they were actually making a mini phantom, it's a sick little case. I see it retailing at 99.99 on newegg, could be a little high but if you like the phantom but a full tower is more than you'll need this would be the way to go especially if you're setting this ontop a desk. It's cool that they brought the phantom down to a mid tower, even if its still on the big side with the panels.

there's still only 2 front usb ports on the full tower version..and if your mobo doesn't have 3.0 support, you really only have one front usable one...and here with the 410 they have 2 of each which is nice (and they have everyone on one side of the case rather than controller on one side and usb/audio on other). but still would think they'd revise the phantom a bit and atleast give 4 front usb's for it because there's plenty of room and it is a full tower afterall.

410's a sweet case :)

@Rodney, in your personal opinion would you prefer this or the full tower Phantom and why?

True, but remember you can buy dust filters in just about any size. As an example: http://www.quietpcusa.com/Fansis-120mm-Fan-Dust-Filter-Washable--P298C0.aspx

I really like the Phantom case. It is my second favourite case after the Raven RV01.
Its good to see this smaller version with a window. Thats one thing I dont like about the bigger version. Its just a pity that the window is kind of small.
If it had a bigger window instead of those vent holes, it would be perfect and I would buy one.

They do have a windowed side panel for the original on now, came out like last month IIRC. I just don't remember anymore if it is -just- an option, or if they bundle it.
