Video Review #1330 Summary

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

The NZXT Phantom 410 Special Edition Case is available in Black with Orange Trim, Black with White Trim, White with Blue Trim, and a surprise Gunmetal black edition with a gunmetal interior and exterior matte finish. It 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 got a question about the fans.. The case comes with a molex which goes from the fan controler to the power supply? so if I'm right, I'll have to install all the fans in the fan controller? where is the fan controller? thanks in advance, lookin forward a reply

I need to konw about the USB's in the front are they in the same cable (USB 3's and 2's)so do I need a mother board that has an USB3 header?

You'll definitely need a motherboard that has usb3 headers on them for the front connectors to support it.

This case is really awesome looking and seems to have a lot of options. However, just a few dust filters would've made this case a 100% Kickass product IMHO.

I do like the gunmetal look also but i prefer the original phantom. imo the answer for everyone asking for a 230 mm fan for the side wasn't to remove that option but to make a 230mm fan that fits the mounting -with led's-

That gunmetal black does look really good, but I think I still prefer my Phantom

Hello.. thx 4 the review... ;)
Quick Question... So there is really nothing they changed but the color? Still no dustfilters? no other improvement?
Also, does the new Versions have all the same blue LED like the original ones?

Yes, that's what I was informed before I did the review and I can't confirm this as well at the time of this review.

Does anyone make cases with removable motherboard trays anymore?

"The motherboard tray is not removable" it's a 3dGameMan.com trademark! :P

Not many, but Lian Li does as well. I think it's a corporate decision to save costs. Making a case with a removable motherboard tray would cost a nice but more and in this economy, who's gonna buy it.

It's not Matt finish it's a satin Sheen! Matt does not reflect light at all.

So, if it doesn't reflect light at all, than it's invisible, right? :D
