4 out of 5 eggsSolid, had it for years.

This review is from: NZXT Crafted Series Phantom Black/Green Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Where to start? I've had this guy for over two(ish) years.
1. Durable. I've dropped the thing several times and did more damage to the floor than to the case.
2. Massive interior. if you want a case that will support around 8 HDDs/SSDs and plenty of room to work in, this is it.
3. Seven Fans. Drop 40-50$ and you can add another 120mm and a 200(?)mm. That is crazy for cooling. or take out the top fans and slap in a water cooler.
4.5 Disc drive slots. For stuff that goes there like a fan controller.
5. Cools well. I've had the thing for a few years and have never had a problem with the case cooling.
Overall it is a solid case if you want a massive hulking thing that is still nice to look at.

Cons: As literally everyone has said, the thing is massive. It is really heavy by itself and once you add all the components it can get bulky.
The storage runs right into two fans. But, this is an easy issue to solve. Put your HDDs/SSDs in backwards and route them through the back panel (which also comes off) (That is the side where the built in fan light controller is) Easy issue.
Overall those are the only things I can think of that I dislike about the case.

Other Thoughts: It can take a hell of a beating. (Just try not to beat it up)

5 out of 5 eggsNZXT phantom case. I had my eye on this case for about 4 years now it's simply amazing so much room that it keeps everything running at a nice cool temp.

This review is from: NZXT Crafted Series Phantom Black/Green Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Room for more and cooler things looks simply amazing sitting there.

Cons: The only con I have is I didnt check my power supply for when i bought this case my power supply has no 3 pin connectors to hook up the side fans. and plastic case but what ever the plastic is sturdy and amazing

Other Thoughts: So.... If anyone would like to help me with the 3 pin connectors if they could direct me to a product that would allow me to hook up the side fans it would be appreciated

3 out of 5 eggsIt works, but I expected better.

This review is from: NZXT Crafted Series Phantom Black/Green Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: It has a nice colour scheme. I like green, and it's sort of the colour I'm identified by.
Plenty of space to move cords around.
Has a significantly more friendly shelving system than a lot of other cases I've used
The fans made especially for it move a lot of air.

Cons: Requires specialized fans. This design is supposedly stopping because of that.
The fan controller is weak, if it even works.
The spacing of the components is awkward at the best of times; the backspace for where the heatsink goes isn't appropriate for a lot of boards
The dust cover for the optional top filter was a pain to remove.
I got a case with unbearably cheap looking plastic. This really seems to be 50/50, but it also made it a lot easier to pry apart. If I did it with a solid plastic, I wouldn't feel the bend needed and it'd just snap.

Other Thoughts: My fan controller died after the first boot. I've restarted a few times in my build, and it has yet to start up since the first time. That is extremely frustrating, and it's hindering my performance. Which sucks, because it has green LEDs, and I really just love green. I have to go look for a replacement fan controller or just go with hooking them all up to the board itself.

I also couldn't actually find a lot of fans with green LEDs, or anything to fit the front panel at all since when I looked, the 14cm ones were sold out. I'd personally like to get help with this one. And the fan controller. Please, give me my green.

This review is from: NZXT Crafted Series Phantom Black/Green Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Looks great and build solid with plenty of space.

Cons: The top and side panel fan require specific fan which was not listed and caused me to buy the wrong fans several times.

5 out of 5 eggsBest case

This review is from: NZXT Crafted Series Phantom Black/Green Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: This has been the best case I have owned for watercooling. It fits both my seahawk 980ti''s as well as a huge h220x swifttech waterpump on top as well as 4 extra fans for intake and exhaust of air.. 5 eggs for top notch quality product. I had a case like this in white gave it to my wife/ got this one for myself for a green theme PC

Cons: Only con I can find and disappointedly so.. is if you want to remove the extra bay for hard drives you have to unscrew it from the side and from the bottom. The side unscrews just fine but the bottom is basically painted over and it is VERY hard to take the screws out. You have to use a very sturdy hard carbon metal cross point screw driver or automated one with a strong carbon point that doesn't break and incorporates the screw very well to be able to break that paint line that is formed around the screws.. Other than that everything is flawless. Very spacey has a LOT of spots to place pumps. Also the side door for the case may appear hard to TAKE out at first because you haven't learned its trick.. it has a clamp like end that connects to the end of the case and clicks right in and pops right out if you press it right.

Other Thoughts: This case makes my full green theme PC look AMAZING everyone is asking me about it now :D

5 out of 5 eggsPhantom Case by NZXT (UPDATED)

This review is from: NZXT Crafted Series Phantom Black/Green Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: This is an extremely solid case. I have had this for just over a year, and haven't had any issues. This case comes with a lot of hard drive options, which is a plus for many people. The HDD sliders are very easy to work with.
The color is amazing. Nothing has faded or broke during the time that I've owned this. With a small child and dog, my case still looks brand new. The plastic is very durable, and keeps its shine.
This case comes with "decent" fans, but most people tend to upgrade regardless.
This comes with a bracket to allow for the installation of a radiator below the 200mm fans up top.

The fan controller is amazing. It is very simple and easy to reach. It is better than having to manipulate toggles on a front plate.

Unlike others, my case came initially with USB 3.0 on top.

This case is high quality. The best case I've ever owned. Its a little heavy, and feels very sturdy. There are rubber grips underneath, which do a great job and preventing any sliding. I have to pick the ends up to adjust the case to make sure it fits straight (OCD, it has to be set up parallel to the wall).

Not sure how, but the case does a good job at muting any internal sounds. I can hear the 200mm fans when they are on full blast, but I cannot hear much else.

Cons: Power LED went out after a year (please see note)

Other Thoughts: My power LED died at just over the 1 year mark. I emailed customer service with my invoice. I immediately received an email within 10 minutes asking for my mailing address. I sent my email at the end of the day Thursday, and I received my package 7 days later. Within an hour of deliver, I was emailed by the customer service rep to ensure I had actually received it (he received a delivery confirmation). The experience was amazing. Between quality and customer service, I will be remain an NZXT customer.

This is a very solid case. I did a case modification and took out the big HDD rack, and inserted the smaller one underneath the CD bay. There has been minimal, if any, instability caused by the removal of the HDD rack. It was riveted in, and the only change in integrety is when all sides are off and I'm working with it. It isn't bad, and I do not feel that the product will collapse. It's simple physics.. Seriously.

The case is huge, but ensure you do your measurements. I have a Corsair heatsink, and it barely fits the side 200mm fan. I had to mount the brackets between the mesh and the door. (You have to shave down the inside of the brackets for it to fit).

Despite all of the intakes on this case, I have very minimal dust. Granted, I clean the case out about once a month or so, but having a dog, I've had other cases fill up much quicker. The airflow is great. Purchasing the FN series 200mm fans is a great upgrade.

The default 200mm LED size is 3.5mm. I installed 5mm and drilled the holes bigger. An idea incase you cannot find 200mm fans in your color scheme.

Lastly, the air pressure for the 200mm fans can backflow into the case. A simple modification is to block off the hole in the top inside portion of the metal case and the front of the top plastic case modling as well. I used plastic from a water jug and taped it in. It isn't even visible when the case is put together. It prevents the air from black flowing. The exhaust air pressure is noticeably stronger. (If you do the same to the bottom of the front piece, it'll stop the front fan from taking in any dirt, dust, or animal hair that might float underneath the case).

Great case, and will definitely purchase another NZXT case when I upgrade in a few years.

(Of note, please track that the FN and FS series fans have been replaced. The new holes of the FZ series 200mm fans will not fit this case.)

4 out of 5 eggsGorgeous Case, Confusing Fans

This review is from: NZXT Crafted Series Phantom Black/Green Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Excellent quality in materials, visually stunning, and TONS of room for components.

This case is absolutely worth the money. I have zero regrets in upgrading to this full size tower from a mid. The finish on the case is fairly durable and the plastic parts don't scratch from basic handling of the case.

Installation of parts was SUPER easy. Everything fit where it should.

Cons: The fans were very confusing, I don't care about using the controller. It came with no instructions on how to hook the fans up to the power supply. This could just be ignorance on my part on how to hook up a fan controller

The fans aren't of the best quality, I would plan and recommend on buying OEM fans with better and quieter bearings.

Other Thoughts: This is a BIG case and it weighs a decent amount. I love seeing it sitting on my desk every day. Worth every penny.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat tower

This review is from: NZXT Crafted Series Phantom Black/Green Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: great construction and format!
No issues but one and ill explain in "other thoughts"

Cons: fan controller is the biggest con for this tower. if your system fails to turn on, best bet it is your fan controller.

Other Thoughts: to see if it is your fan controller (sliders on top of the tower that speeds up your fans) disconnect the power to the controller and if the system turns on then you need another controller. i have found a good controller that you can get from newegg .http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811992004
this one has five fan controls but if you need a six fan controller here is the other one i considered. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811992012. i only took one egg away for the controller issue. other then that it is a great case.
good luck all.
