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.

3 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: Plenty of space and looks great.

Cons: Easy to scratch, and I've had this less than a year and the LED light over the top fan has already stopped working.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, NZXT Valued Customer

We do appreciate the feed-back regarding the original phantom case, the cases surface is made out of abs plastic which has a glossy coating to it. Also in regards to the LED light failing to blink or emit any light at all we would be able to assist with a parts replacement for you. All you would need to do is visit us at support.nzxt.com and at the top right you would simply submit a request with your invoice attached. You can also contact us directly if you have any issues with filling out the request form at 1-800-228-9395.
Kind regards,
NZXT Support.

5 out of 5 eggsMinor issue but NZXT is resolving it

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

Pros: As someone who is slow to upgrade non-essential things I had my previous mid-tower case for at least 7 years. I finally decided it was time to get a full tower that easily worked with todays bigger and bigger GPUs and aftermarket CPU heatsinks and bought this.

It's spacious and designed well with the airflow as well as the cases ability to route cables to keep it clear of clutter.

Cons: My case came with a bad wire for my panel fans so they were intermittently cutting out. After 2 days of chatting with NZXT they are sending me replacement parts so it will be fixed soon. Otherwise an awesome purchase.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Case

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

Pros: Sleek look fans are quiet clean sleek design

Cons: Cooling fan doesn't fit hard drives must be turned backwards so to access you must remove both side panels very irritating. No real way to install card reader only 2 USB ports on top wouldn't buy another

5 out of 5 eggsPhantom review

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

Pros: not a bad case, good amount of room, great airflow, looks nice, I recommend this case to anyone looking for a full tower upgrade. i love the horizontal hard drive mounts. makes it easy to manage HHd's. built in fan controller is a plus.

Cons: the only con i would say is the low qaulity molex male connector that is built in to the case (power supply for the built in fan controller). the prongs were all messed up and it took forever to get it plugged in, other than that all is good.

Other Thoughts: price is reasonable, but manufacturer needs to put a better connecter in.
