Very good case 01/15/2014
This is a very nice case. It is a good value. I really like the cable management system going behind the motherboard, however, it won't work for shorter fan cables and the like. The included fans are nice, and push out a decent amount of air. The manual fan controls are easy to use (just one switch). The case is sufficiently wide enough for larger CPU coolers, like the CoolMaster Hyper 212 Evo; I have this one and can confirm it fits perfectly. There are spaces to add additional fans, however, the stock fans will suffice for the vast majority of users' needs.
The built-in case fans can become quite loud when the fan controller is switched to max RPM. To that I say: What did you expect from three 120mm fans? I thought I had a fan rattling or a controller issue, but it turned out the be the fan on the CPU cooler. There is some evidence online of an issue affecting some Phantom cases. Search for "Phantom 410 fan noise" if you are curious. My case is OK so far...
