2 out of 5 eggsBetter Options Out There

Pros: I will start off by saying that I purchased this case from a different vendor, however, as I have had my current build in it for going on 3 years now, I felt obligated to write a review.

-Nice looking case (depending on your personal taste)
-Decent airflow (an included front intake fan would've made this great)
-Integrated fan controller (not a lot of cases in price range feature this)
-Plenty of room for drives (both platter and SSD)
-Will fit nearly any graphics card (I have had a EVGA GTX580 in mine, and never have space issues)
-Good cable management options

Cons: Now come the cons, a few of which, are big enough in my opinion to outweigh the pros.

-No included front intake fan (I would be hard-pressed to find a case in this price range that doesn't include a front intake fan)
-Fan options are largely restricted to NZXT brand-only fans (which are not cheap!)
-Case is a haven for thumb-prints/smudges!
-The case is advertised as having "extra room" behind the motherboard for cable management, the amount of room behind the motherboard tray is average at best.

Perhaps the biggest con for me with this case I ran into when I first purchased it, and I should have returned it. Perhaps it was my mistake for not letting the problem warn me to stay away.

When I (and others reported this same issues as well) installed my motherboard, before even attempting to install my graphics card, I could tell that the expansion slots on my motherboard did not line up correctly with the expansion slots on the case. I thought perhaps that this could be an issue with my particular model of motherboard, however, I installed a ASUS Sabertooth 990FX AM3+ board I also had and it had the same exact issue. So, in order for me to install my graphics card/sound card, I had to physically bend the dividers between the expansion slots on the case to get the card to install and seat correctly.

It is because of this somewhat terrible experience that I will be weary of purchasing an NZXT case again, and many of the people I know (lots of gamer/IT friends) also have seen this, many of whom were shocked that NZXT would sell such a product.

Other Thoughts: Please do your research before buying this case; it may seem like an extremely good deal for a full tower at this price point.

Always remember, you get what you pay for!

5 out of 5 eggsLove this case

-Beautiful Design
-Includes its own fan control!
-Comes with 4 fans
-Easy to open/close (thumbtack screws)

I've owned this case for about 4 years and i decided to buy another for the computer i was building for my brother. You cant go wrong with this case.

Cons: It can be too big for some people, but thats why i like it.

Other Thoughts: At $100 this is my favorite case. I'd pay $200 for it if that was what it sold for.

5 out of 5 eggsPhantom

Pros: Good cable management
The fans are quiet when they are on low
Lots of room for motherboard and high end cards
Gloss black finish is nice

Cons: The side panels take getting use to, but that really isn't a con, when you pull the top panel off it feels like it is going to break other than that it is a really good case.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid case for price

Pros: -Plenty of space
-Good cable management
-Good airflow
-Plenty of fan slots
-Easily removable front and top panels
Side notes:
The case comes with fan filters on its fan slots which is nice so you don't have to go buy any. The case also looks very nice which depending on your preference can either be extremely important or not at all.

Cons: -Case is a fingerprint magnet
-Front and top panels feel a bit cheap
Side notes:
If you are using a high end air cooler that takes up a lot of real estate in your case you will not be able to use the side 200mm fan.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this beast

Pros: *Interior space - crossfire no problem
*Cable management - lots of room behind mobo tray
*Top-mounted audio and USB
*Good airflow - heat never a problem
*Fans not loud at all - six fans and a 1000 wt ps
*Style - nothing else like it
*NZXT quality - very well-engineered

Cons: Does not make me toast

Other Thoughts: I have had this monster for 3 years now and still love it. The space inside I can fit two 7870 cards in crossfire no problem. Also an extended 1000 watt ps.
Fan controller has worked great for 3 years.
This is not a small case. With 3x HDD; 2x SSD; 2x 7870; big power supply, etc, it is about as heavy and ungainly as a window air conditioner. Do not recommend taking it to LAN parties.
Unless you want to show it off. ;-)
If you place it on carpet I recommend you use spacers for best air flow.
My Phantom has travelled cross country and back with me for jobs and shows minimal wear and tear.

5 out of 5 eggsOverall Great Case

Pros: Plenty of room, fairly good air flow, nice shape and design, very sturdy

Cons: All but one fan indicator LED went out within a year

Other Thoughts: It's been great for my first solo build, most of my college friends love the design and the color of the LED's. It's a pretty sturdy case, being in a college apartment it can get knocked around every now and then even when I think it's out of the way. It has lots of room for cable management and expansion. The fan indicator LED's going out kinda bugs me but it's not a huge deal, I can still adjust the speed and everything else works. Would have liked more room with the top fans to fit some of the bigger liquid CPU coolers but again its a minor detail for me.

3 out of 5 eggsToo many angles

Pros: Lots of space
Good cable management
Fan filter on bottom
Good fans
Mounts a double rad no problem

Cons: wasted space on top and front with the angled covers. cant put anything on the case or it will slide off.
Only 1 USB3 port.
The door is really though to put back on, could have really benefited from a hinge.
the lights on the fan counter went out, and the plastic over them is coming loose
The harddrive mounting option is really annoying with the little stoppers

Other Thoughts: I have a mid sized case that fits just as much vertical space as this huge case because it doesnt have the protruding top and bottom. Maybe it personal preference but I dont think this is even close to the most functional case out there

4 out of 5 eggsKiller

Pros: Very spacious and it keeps my computer with really nice air flow, I've hardly had any issues with heat even with just a stock cooler on my CPU because I haven't been able to afford better quite yet. The fans that it comes with are very efficient it was rather shocking, and quiet as well.

Cons: Hardly any. I have issues with cable management but that's only because I suck at it.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing case, Great price

Pros: This is such a great case. There's so much room, but not so much where your wires are strained from one end to the other. Great wring orgaization routes. Aesthetically beautiful. I get compliments on it all the time. You won't be disappointed.

Cons: None! Such a great case both aesthetically, and functionally. And it's priced much lower than similar cases.

Other Thoughts: But it!
