NZXT Phantom 630 Windowed Edition Matte Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Extremely poor quality control 05/23/2014

This review is from: NZXT Phantom 630 Windowed Edition Matte Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Looks good on paper, Comes with lots of dust filters, Modular drive cages and lots of radiator mounts. Cable management was not too difficult either with big rubber grommets and fan hub.

Cons: When you actually start working on this case, It instantly turns into a nightmare.
1. The front panel is extremely difficult to remove, Those plastic prongs are supposed to come off when you pull from the bottom, Instead you can snap your entire front panel in two during the process. They either messed up the measurement or just poor workmanship. I wish I can skip this process, Unfortunately you HAVE to open to front panel first before you remove the top panel. They really should attempt to remove the front panel themselves before selling it to the mass.
2. The top panel is also a huge pain to remove and requires excess amount of force that you think you might just break something again. Did I say again? So good luck installing a radiator there.
3. Once the CD drive / Front panel water cooling reservoir is installed, You can no longer open up the front panel without breaking it. Now good luck reaching that dust filter.
4. Just as others mentioned, There was a layer of dust around the case corners after it was opened.
5. With all the modular hard drive cages removed, The entire case can actually bend showing how weak the structure is.

SilverStone Temjin Series TJ11B-W Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs Seriously, This is the successor to TJ07? 01/26/2014

This review is from: SilverStone Temjin Series TJ11B-W Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: It's aluminum

Cons: TJ07 was a legend, But this is a joke.

The hole on the side panel is ugly, The price tag is horrendous, The numerous 5.25'' bays are worthless today and not 3.25'' drive compatible, The two bottom fans are unnecessary (Anyone who spends 600 on a case obv going water cooling), The radiator support is poor.

I expect radiator support on top, front and bottom for a case like this.

Other Thoughts: Why would you implement the RAVEN design into a case that's made for liquid cooling? It's like giving a cruise ship tiny wheels and expect it to run on land. Not only you lose the radiator support on top, It's also a huge waste of space.

And all that 5.25'' drive bays? lol

BitFenix Prodigy Arctic White Steel / Plastic Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs A little bigger than you think 01/19/2014

This review is from: BitFenix Prodigy Arctic White Steel / Plastic Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case

Pros: This is one of the few good Mini-ITX cases that work for high end gaming systems. There is enough airflow (Assuming you get the non-window version) even for high end flagship video cards, Plus tons of room to hide your cables even if you don't use a modular power supply.

You can install a 240 radiator onto the top by sacrificing the optical drive bay for some overclocking CPU cooling. There is also tons of places to install the SSD, Such as the side panel, drive tray and the place behind the power supply.

Comparing to other cases, Installation was relatively painless except what I will mention below.

Cons: I dislike how they have all the front panel audio, switches and USB ports integrated onto the right side panel with all the cables, Those are difficult to manage.

Despite being a Mini-ITX case, This case is actually wider than most mid tower cases and about the same size as micro-ATX cases. Also the rear fan needs a fan grill.
