Excerpt: Not long ago NZXT officially announced their upcoming new Full tower chassis The Phantom. This case is targeting the enthusiast market and offers many exciting features. The company spent countless hours working with members of the Case modding community like Craig Brugger and Bill Owen to help bring a product to fruition that is both easy on the eyes and very user friendly. The exterior features an elegant high gloss finish and will be available in Red, White and Black.
Excerpt: The Phantom case is one of their more popular models, and is available in many different colors to suit your taste. The cases are available in white, black, red, and even pink for the grrl gamers (and some boy gamers: you know who you are!).
Conclusion: We really can’t complain with the Phantom. It features killer styling and ample room for even the most space-demanding builds. We only wish it were a bit more efficient at whisking away heat with the included fans and provided more space for custom water cooling loops — something any full tower should easily excel at.
Summary: As casemodders we always look at a case and evaluate it based on construction and its ability to accept mods. The case is constructed from high quality steel and painted to match the color you have chosen. All of the edges are filed smooth or rolled over for additional strength so you won't need to break out the leather gloves during the initial build or upgrades.
Pros: Artful design, Plenty of Cooling Options, Built in Fan Controller, Three Colors Available
Cons: Very few modding opportunities, Large case with only 7 expansion slots, Door fans with long wires
Excerpt: Dear Icrontic: Your Editor-in-Chief is kind of an idiot sometimes. So much so that he assigned the same review to two separate staffers. Well, no harm, no foul. Here’s an unprecedented second review of the NZXT Phantom full-tower case. Enjoy.
Conclusion: The NZXT Phantom sells for $139.99 , but can often be found on sale for much less. ( Editor note: There’s a promo code on Newegg right now for $20 off: NZXTAP20 ) The price is average among full tower cases, but given the build quality and thought given to keeping cables out of the way, the price of admission is well worth it. It’s a great looking case to boot. Is there anything bad about this case?
Excerpt: Today I am checking out the NZXT Phantom computer case. This enthusiast level case is aimed at gamers and computer geeks that want something looks good and has good cooling and other features. Read on for all the details on the NZXT Phantom.
Pros: Fantastic case design, Lots of features, Robust cooling system
Excerpt: The more I played with the NZXT Phantom, the more I liked it. The white finish with its black accents really makes this case stand out from the crowd and the roomy interior was a joy to work in thanks to the excellent cable management.
Summary: 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.
Summary: Though its CPU cooling score was second-worst in the pack, GPU and system temperatures ran as cool as the LanBoy Air—once again proving the merit of side intake fans. With the addition of a front intake fan, the Phantom could offer cooling performance to match its astounding looks. And given that the Phantom costs just $140, you’ll have plenty of cash left over for a fan or two. Pop off the front bezel and install an intake fan. DO IT.
Pros: Stunning design; plenty of room for fans; great value.
Cons: Needs a front fan; thinks it's a full-tower.
