3 out of 5 eggsGreat Refurbished case, but already damaged out of box..

Pros: - Was inexpensive refurbished
- Looks amazing. Reminds me of the old Alienware Desktops, and I like it even though I hate Dell
- Extremely quiet. I guess it is called a 'Phantom' for a reason
- Lots of space, and presumably much colder. if....

Cons: - Fan controller didn't work out of box. Tried playing with the switches am different settings, replacing molex cable, trying different fan extensions.... Nothing worked. Can't RMA it because I already have my radiator and liquid cooling set up, and it took too long to get everything in there just right. Part would be easy to replace if newegg would kindly send me a new fan controller unit for it.
- The 200mm fan that came with it was broken!! Can't RMA it because I thought I could just use plastic cement on it to get it back together only for it to easily fall off again. I'll doubt they'll replace it after that -_-
The mesh panels were pretty significantly damaged,
- I must have purchased the wrong 200mm fan? I bought a Cooler Master one that didn't seem to be case-specific, and it won't fit in any of the 200mm fan spots...

Other Thoughts: Don't get your hopes up when you buy something that is marked refurbished, as cases like this aren't all too uncommon. It only gets 3 eggs because I like the case a lot. If I already have this many bad things to say on day 1, that's not a good thing. I hope Newegg replaces the fan controller, because it is really unfortunate and dissatisfying. I was mostly excited about that feature... only to find it not functioning whatsoever, so I had to take WAY more time than I intended to re-route the cables (something that always has and always will take a lot of my time) and get all the fans working. Now ask me how much fun it was searching for my molex-to-3pin header. Hint; it wasn't. I spent three hours or more revamping my rig (this also included applying thermal paste to a couple parts), and overall I'm really disappointed in Newegg for this.... Not to mention the trouble I went through to retrieve it. I had to sit at the post office for quite an amount of time because Newegg tried to mix home delivery and USPS delivery, which my town and many others do not do >.>

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, Valued NZXT Customer

We deeply apologize for the inconvenience, we can assist you with a parts replacement for your fan controller and also the 200mm fitting for the phantom is not a true 200 mm fit. When released it was a 193mm fitting that was meant for the phantom case. If you can please visit support.nzxt.com at the top right you will see submit a request. What we will go ahead and offer is replacement for the fan and also a mesh replacement depending on the location if it is on the side or top it would have to be a panel replacement. Also if you have any concerns or questions please feel free to contact us at +1-800-228-9395.

Kind regards,
NZXT Support.

4 out of 5 eggsCheap, Huge, Works

Pros: Just received the case. The extra fans are decent, nothing to write home about but definitely nice to have since my rig runs hot. The case is large, so if you plan on putting in a tight spot, its best to reconsider. It came ready to be compatible with a water cooling system. All in all im very pleased with it. The additional disc drive bays are a nice touch. If anything fails on it Ill be sure to update this review.

Cons: The only con i can think of is that when I received my case, one of the nuts in the rear was put on too tight and it caused a small, nickle sized dent. Not really a huge deal for me since im not worried too much about aesthetics. That was the only issue I could find with it. Nothing worth fussing over, but thats the only thing I could think of.

Other Thoughts: In summary, this is a really great case for the price. The only reason i docked an egg was the small nickle sized dent, which isn't really a big deal. I would definitely buy another one of these and would recommend them to family and friends. If your looking for a case that has extra fans and disc bays and is ready for a water system. This is the one for you!

5 out of 5 eggsI like it

Pros: Very big, comes with a few fans and has room for several more, keeps my CPU, GPU, chipset and power supply all running cool. Has a nice shiny red finish.

Cons: Does not have a slot to put in a card reader

Other Thoughts: I was using a cheap rosewill mid size tower before I switched to this case and everything has dropped about 10 degrees Celsius in temperature. My fx 8320 runs at 45c average under load and my radeon 7950 boost runs at 50c average.
