1 out of 5 eggsLies

This review is from: NZXT Phantom PHAN-001WT White Steel / Plastic Enthusiast ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: This case is a work of art inside and out. I just love the way it looks and how much space is inside of it. The cable management capabilities are phenomenal.

Cons: There were a few slight problems I ran into but I improvised. Problems to expect:
1. Screw holes do not always match up between the case and motherboard/fans/HDD/SSD/optical drives.
2. The two 200mm "optional fan" areas are total lies. There is not a single 200mm fan that will fit in those two areas due to screw holes not matching up.
3. PCI cards are a little difficult to screw in because of the way the case bends.

Other Thoughts: This is case is great if you're looking for a full tower. Just a few minor problems with it. I improvised with the screw holes not matching up on the fans by using industrial strength velcro. Can't even tell it is on there.
8/10 would recommend. Update: Velcro gave out, tried industrial strength mounting tape and it gave out. Those "Optional Fan" spots are total pieces of garbage. 2/10 Would not recommend. NZXT needs to a better QA department because obviously they aren't checking the "optional 200mm fan" spots. Probably going to buy a case that isn't NZXT and just use this one for holding my laundry or something. All it's good for.

3 out of 5 eggsgood but not perfect

This review is from: NZXT Phantom PHAN-001WT White Steel / Plastic Enthusiast ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: really big,nice looking,great cooling and good cable managment

Cons: can't put all of the screw for the power supply (2 screw / 4) because the rubber pad make the power supply too high
motherboard back hole a little bit too small (not bad also..no worry it work but just a little bit too small for installing backplate)
can't put 2 fan on a controller..the issue is it supossed to work this way LOL this issue is know on internet...check some forum
200mm fan are not 200mm...you'll need to buy nzxt fan ONLY

Other Thoughts: if the motherboard back hole was bigger and the 200mm fan socket was a real 200mm this product would have been very good !

5 out of 5 eggsCool design

This review is from: NZXT Phantom PHAN-001WT White Steel / Plastic Enthusiast ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Amazed at how big it is, sleek cool design and awesome color scheme!

Cons: Removing the top panel is basically impossible without removing all the components inside, don't even try, if you're installing an extra top fan be sure to do it FIRST.

1 out of 5 eggsYellow piece of trash

This review is from: NZXT Phantom PHAN-001WT White Steel / Plastic Enthusiast ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Lotsss of space

Cons: This scat had its plastic start to yellow a little bit before the warranty ran out and I ignored it because I thought "hmm it's not too bad it won't get worse" Well just a little over 3 years and most of the plastic on the case is yellow. I have white cases from the 90's that are still white as snow. You know that ugly look some of the old super nintendos get? Dingy tobacco stain yellow? That's what you have to look forward to when you buy this.

3 out of 5 eggsI got the 1 out of a 1000 bad egg, still a good case

This review is from: NZXT Phantom PHAN-001WT White Steel / Plastic Enthusiast ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: The case is huge, Mobo, GPU, CPU cooler, HDD, SSD all fit nicely!
The fan controller on top is a nice touch to control them.
Design is amazing

Cons: Fans go out and Fan controller failed after 6 months. I would have warrantied it out, but to wait for another case was out of the question for me.
Limited fans included. you have to buy the rest.

Other Thoughts: Cant wait for the next design, maybe ill get a good one instead of the 1/1000

4 out of 5 eggsA farewell review

This review is from: NZXT Phantom PHAN-001WT White Steel / Plastic Enthusiast ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: - Big case
- Very aesthetically pleasing
- 4 fans, including a nice, big 200mm fan.
- Nice cable management potential.
- The ability to turn on and off the lighted fan really easily.
- Integrated fan controller (I never realized how much this spoiled me until I got my new case, which does not have one).
- Big power and reset buttons, as well as power and HDD lights.
- Magnetically closing front door for a clean, finished look.
- Spring loaded releases on both side panel doors.
- Screwless mounting of HDDs and 5.25" devices.
- Easy mounting of SSDs.
- Screw holes for 5.25" devices for an added layer of protection.
- The rear hard drive cage is removable for water cooling, or long PSUs.
-

Cons: - This thing LOVES dust, especially in the little hiding places where you can't see it all collecting until it chokes the case up.
- Only a 120mm rear exhaust fan. (not a real con, but hey)
- Putting a fan in the big opening on the door is a good idea, but it's really annoying if you want to ever open your case.
- Did not come with a front fan.
- The front fan port had no dust filter.
- The dust filters were very difficult to remove for cleaning.
- The power and reset buttons were easy to accidentally hit.
- I hope you don't need to route any cables to the top rear of your motherboard, because the cable management is really bad there.
- Front panel audio has never worked for me. Nor did it work for me in the previous case that I owned, which was also NZXT (it's not the motherboard, it's working perfectly fine in the new case)
- If you mount an SSD into the cage with thumb screws, you can't put an HDD into the slot below it.
- The HDD rails were very inflexible, and probably way too thick for their purposes.
- The pins to hold the HDDs in place on the rails were held in with very thin rubber, making it very hard to keep them in place, especially when I had to use all that force to make them go into or come out of their rails.
- The hole on the rear of the motherboard tray does not line up with AMD motherboards, so I still had to take it out to install an aftermarket cooler (not a real con, but I'm lazy)
- NZXT's fans. They're garbage. Really. They are. I have never worked with worse fans in my life. Their blades are both really soft and really brittle, which doesn't make sense at first, until you gently press on the wrong part of the fan to hold it in place while trying to mount it, and it gives way really easily to have a blade snap after hardly moving at all. And the longevity of these fans? Give me a break. I've had to replace almost all of the fans due to excessive noise after a few months to a year or two. It's not the bearing either. One of the blades broke off from all of the rubbing against its case, and the noise stopped. Obviously, I still had to replace it, but it worked until I could get a new one, and it was quiet. Without the fan issues, most of the cons on this case are from laziness, and this case might have even gotten 5 eggs. NZXT really needs to step their fan game up.

Other Thoughts: I just recently got a new case. I am writing this review after having this case for more than five years. I got this case back when it still had 2x USB 2.0 on the top panel. So, yes. I've had it for a while, and have run into every problem that people are likely to have, however, they may have updated it since my purchase.

Please do not let the wall of text in the cons section deter you from purchasing this case, though. This case was amazing while it lasted.
