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!

2 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely Horrible.

Pros: Not many.
The fan speed switches are nice to have, but yet again, very flimsy plastic.
It comes with nice hardware, but don't use the "easy mounting hard drive bays."

Cons: Oh, boy. Time to make this list.
- One of the feet at the bottom of the case was broken off when I got it.
- The side door came warped, I cannot fully shut the door.
- One of the fans on the side door works when it wants to.
- Bad airflow.
- Scratches easily.
- Dust and dirt MAGNET. It's glossy plastic.
- The fans, if you'd like to get a replacement, have to be NZXT. They make them slightly smaller so you HAVE to buy their brand with their cases.
- May not be a technical issue, but it's a giant eyesore to my room. I don't have enough room to put a second monitor on my desk because this thing is so huge, and not to mention, ugly.

Other Thoughts: Overall, i'd say this was a waste of my money. This is one case where i'd say "you get what you pay for" doesn't apply. Absolute money pit. I have no idea why this case is in the top 10 gaming cases on most websites and youtube videos. I'm a technician, and when my friends look at this case for their gaming builds, I tell them to avoid this like the plague, and so should you. I'm currently looking for a new case to get rid of this pile of junk. Thanks, NZXT.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Case, Has Flaws

Pros: Space:
This thing has TONS of Space in the front, I managed to squeeze two Radeon 6850's in there no prob (this was an old build). It also comes with some of the most amazing airflow you'll get out of a case (If you get some extra fans).
Build Quality:
They built this case quite nicely, there's no shoddy work on it (that I noticed anyway). Other than the front and top removable panels (which are plastic) the rest of this bad boy is Steel. It's also quite sturdy in some aspects, it's had college text books dropped on it, it's been kicked, dropped and a slew of other things and for the most part everything works the same way it did the day I bought it.
It has lots of functionality as well, all of the HDD bays are removable (which I took out except for the two I was using to increase Air Flow from the front fan) and the 5.25 inch bays have this clever latch system that makes installing and removing things (whether it be an optical drive or a USB hub or a fan controller, etc...) as easy as 3.14.
I almost forgot the EXTREMELY useful fan controllers. Sure they aren't the most fancy, but they get the job done, make the case look better, and stopped me from buying a separate one.
The Look:
Now we can talk about the look, this thing is BIG but it has a sleek sexy look to it and when its dark out, those blue LEDs look like heaven, NZXT made one hell of a pretty case when they made the Phantom. I really can't overstate this, this case is a Sexy, Sexy beast.

Cons: Now it's time for the dreaded down side. Off the back, for all of the work NZXT put into making this case rigid and sturdy in a general sense, they kinda slacked in the micro sense. My front most USB port on the top of the case doesn't work - period.
Another thing is that there is little space behind the MOBO tray for wire management, that being said they leave tons of places for you to anchor wires down, so it kinda evens out.
Actually, that's all of the serious cons with this case, the top panel may not last too long (then again, I've had this case for nearly 3 years now).

Another con for me is cleaning, but thats just a big case problem in general when you're using air cooling. I clean the comp I used this case on about once a month and it takes about an hour getting it nice and Shinny. That's Actually It for me, I love this case!

Other Thoughts: If you want a sexy, sexy Case for a pretty darn good price that'll last you, buy this bad boy, It's worth the investment.

4 out of 5 eggsspacious but flawed

Pros: The space in this full sized tower is fantastic. The tool free assembly of the drives made it a breeze and the ability to hide the wires gives a very spacious and clean look.

Cons: The front external audio ports have completely stopped working. Everything is connected properly, but at this point it needs replaced.

Other Thoughts: Great design, amazing look. Got it 20% off.

2 out of 5 eggsFaulty case, don't buy.

Pros: Pretty silent.

Cons: Case fan LEDs started blinking within a couple months of the purchase at random times.

Can't remove top of the case because the plastic is melded together rendering it impossible to remove the top of the case from the side panels.

Fans randomly change their RPMS, as indicated by the blinking LEDs on top of the case. The LED on my back fan is currently off, yet the fan is still spinning at the lowest RPM.

GARBAGE FAN CONTROLLER, and I've read around the internet that this is a huge issue with this case.
