1 out of 5 eggsQuality assurance do you know what is it?

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

Pros: good looking

Cons: they tightened the screw so tight that all the screws where stripped and the case were bent. i could not even make my way inside....

other than that i cant say, i will not trust this poorly built case to handle my 2000$ build.

Other Thoughts: i might got the bad cases in a million but there is one thing that made me decide to never trust NZXT again for anything, by reading the reviews and seeing always the same issues.... NZXT need a better quality assurance department.

am going back to my loyal Antec... It cost an arm and a leg but at least you are sure of getting quality

4 out of 5 eggsGreat! But...

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

Pros: A lot of space, fit my H100iGTX perfectly with about a inch of space between the rad and my RAM. Looks amazing, pre-installed fans are very quiet. Very glossy keep a microfiber cloth around to clean the fingerprints and dust off.

Cons: The main con would be that the screws on the back were so tight they bent the metal in the factory. So, i have two large dents on two thumb screw holes. Hard to take off the main side panel would be nice if they sent me a side panel for it.

Other Thoughts: Overall a great case just wish the side panel wasn't damaged from factory.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Good Case

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

Pros: This was a very surprising order as this is my first time building a PC.But when i got it in the mail it came earlier then i was expecting(I live in Pennsylvania).Overall the design is very sleek and for the price it is a bargain.

Cons: I was very carefull when reciving this because the instructions do not tell you how it dissemble it.In fact I allmost broke one of the side panels because of this.

1 out of 5 eggsNot for ATX

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

Pros: It has excellent routing capabilities for cables and the like.

Cons: This Case, despite what it details itself as, is not for an ATX motherboard. It leaves about an inch of bend-room for the motherboard, so you cannot install anything in the PCI-E bays. So beware when purchasing this case.

Other Thoughts: Would have been nice to know. ._.

2 out of 5 eggsOkay case but won't buy again

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

Pros: Nice full sized tower with nice blue LEDS.

Cons: Case comes with cruddy dust filters so you have to really clean the inside a lot. Built sturdy but that adds to the weight which is pretty considerable. The side panels are pretty pathetically made as they can bend very easily which is what happened to me. First time I side the case back on, it wasn't on completely so the front part of the door bent which couldn't be fixed with some pliers or a hammer so my case doesn't get its proper air flow through it. I highly recommend that you don't water cool with this system as its already tight inside and the case also gives off monster heat from my dual radiator. Intake fan in front also blows towards the HHD's which is nice but that's all the fan does is cool the drivers, it doesn't help with air flow. The two small side fans on the case are also really pathetically positioned in the case. Again, they just blow on one or two components and adds nothing to the air flow inside. Not to mention it is a big time hassle when you open your case side because you have to either work around the fans or unplug them. Not to mention you also need to find a place for all your cables which just adds more of a mess to the case and again restricts air flow.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome tower

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

Pros: I bought this case 4 years ago when building my first gaming PC. I had no idea this was a full tower when I bought it. And I also had no idea how big a full tower was, since I had never seen one in person. I'm glad I bought it though. I LOVE the space a full tower gives you. It allows so much more air flow and cable management. Also gives you more space to work with if you're cleaning/taking parts out. This thing has held up for 4 years and still going strong (I realize it's just a case, but things can happen). You can't go wrong with this case.

Cons: None!!

Actually, there is one. The big fan slot on the side panel. I can't put a fan there, because it bumps into the GPU and won't close. It doesn't bother me, as my case is already cooled very well. But I would love to have one there. Not worth docking an egg off though.

Other Thoughts: I'm working on building a new rig, and I think finding a new case will be the hardest part for me. I always compare every single tower out there to this one, and have yet to find one that I like better, except for the NEWER Phantom tower.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Tower

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

Pros: Roomy
Sleek
Cool

Cons: Collects dust very easily
Could come with more fans

Other Thoughts: Great case! A little roomier than I anticipated, so my lack of hardware in it looks silly. It collects dust very easily and needs to be cleaned often. Could probably benefit from filters on the provided fans.

3 out of 5 eggsNZXT Phantom

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

Pros: I really like the size of the case and all the spots it has for fans. It made ventilation so much easier. I have ever fan slot filled and a cooler master seidon on my cpu. I chose to switch all the fans to intake and exhaust with the two 200mm fans on top and this seems to keep my internals pretty cool. I have never had cold air blow out of my exhausts before but with this setup my computer does. I have a i7 4790k and two gtx 970s in my case and there is still no problem with temp or space. The spot behind the panel for cable management is a bit plus as well.

Cons: The build of all the switches and cables is really cheap. On every cable end the actual connection nodes wobble around separate from the housing. This makes it very difficult to plug the fan cables together sometimes. The switches for the fan control are also really cheap. One of the switches was even broken when I got the case. It is still usable but you can tell its is cased by the poor build quality. The 200mm cooler master fans that I bought don't fit well. I read reviews and knew this my be an issue before hand but I was just going to fix it up myself because I am not buying NZXT LED fans the LED's suck. I was able to get two of the holes on my cooler master fans to line up and that appears to be enough to keep the fans from rattling so that worked out well. In the reviews i read people said the fans didn't fit at all but I weaseled them in and those two holes lined up so i don't know what those other guys were talking about. I still wish they would use a more standard hole placement between all the companies. The 200mm LED fan that comes with the case has to have the crappiest LED's i have ever seen. On top of that the fan is made from white plastic blades and a black case so none of the LED light transfers through the fan . I moved this to the side of my case and put the two cooler masters up top and you cant barely see the light from the NZXT fan because the light coming from the top two fans is overpowering it through the case. LAME! Don't specialize your holes and then make cruddy fans. The build on the fans seems sub par as well but so far I havn't had any problems so I'll hold off ragging on them about that. Overall the biggest problem is that NZXT just used cheap plastics. The rest of the build quality on the case was pretty good but all the plastics are cheap. I also have never touched the fan control switches so i don't know what the point was. It seemed cool when I bought the case but there really isn't a use for them.
