This review is from: NZXT Crafted Series Phantom Black/Green Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Pros: Lost of room and plenty of places for cable management and peripherals.
One USB 3.0 port on the front/top
Cons: Open the back panel and the rear of the motherboard is exposed just behind the CPU to allow easy installation of aftermarket coolers. The problem is the cut out area is not big enough to expose the mounting holes on the left for a Z97 motherboard.
Other Thoughts: More Details about the CPU cooler problem. I have an ASRock Z97X Killer board, thinking it might have just been bad design by ASRock I checked other boards and all Z97's are in the same spot. To mount my Corsair H50 cooler I had to take the motherboard out despite the convince cutout in the case. It was only a minor inconvenience so I'm not going to take a star.
The added bonus is the USB 3.0 port up front. The details mention there are two 2.0 ports, but one of those ports is actually a 3.0 with 20 pin header. This might be a problem for some if they are looking to upgrade their case and their current system does not have a 20 pin header.
Pros: Works as advertised in my ASRock Z97X Killer board.

Pros: All the bells and whistles that I'll never use

Other Thoughts: Running a 4970k @ 4.8GHz on a stress test for 12 hours now. No issues what so ever.READ FULL REVIEW
