I started thinking about a new build after seeing the SEXY BEAST of a case that is the Phantom 530. I've worked with cases before but this one has been a pleasure. It had everything I needed and was so easy to use and build on. From the fan controls to the removable drives and clean, and I mean CLEAN look, there was no other case I wanted save for the H400, but in the end the Phantom won me over. Did I mention it's sexy? (SIDE NOTE: During my upgrade I accidentally broke the windowed door of my Phantom, don't ask how, point is it happened. So i went to NZXT.com to look for a replacement and they didn't sell one, well ONE email later to ask if I could purchase one, NZXT sent me a replacement for free!!! FREE!!!! Safe to say they have my vote for life, their dedication to their customers is amazing. And their cases aren't to shabby either.)
I love this case for the price it is hard to beat. I would have liked to see the top drive bays to also be removable. other than that it has worked very well for me
Great case easy to cable manage. Three 140 fan mounts at the top, one 140 fan mount on the left, two 120 fan mounts at the botton but psu takes up one spot, and one 200 fan mount. 200mm fan is intake one 140mm fan is outtake.
This case is built solid. I've seen many cases where the front opens, but they always feel cheap and flimsy. Not so with this case. This case has a solid front that just feels satisfying to open and shut. Tons of room in the back for cable management.
Its Dope just look at the pics! Great cable management and all. plus the window. also it comes with speed controls for the built in fans that also look fantastic! also it is super quiet.
Also comes with Built in LED lights inside of the case which help you to see in a dark room if something needs attention.
I might be unhooking the Front LED light because its a little obnoxious how bright it is
I think NZXT make the better looking cases and they are all made with easy handling. This one got plenty of space (its a realy big tower) and you can put up to 3x 200mm fan in it. The only downside is that the fan dust grid prevention make noise when the bottom fan go at 50%+ speed (they vibrate).
Nice looking case, tons of fan mounts, hard drive bays, and a neat SSD mount behind the motherboard. Lots of opportunity for cable management, tons of loops at the back to put your cable ties through. Only gripe is that the top and front panels take a lot of effort to pull off, seemed like it would snap at any second. Worked out in the end, though.
This case looks beautiful, and lets me glare inside the computer. <3
I wanted a white case, don't ask why. It looks nice. The fans that came with are very quiet. I like the LED on the back panel so you can see when you connect things.
I'm happy with it :)
Great case. Plenty of room and I love the ability to remove sections of the drive tray housing. Cooling options are great. I'm running a 240mm intake up front, two 120 mm intakes on the bottom (case sits on desk), a side 140mm fan, an internal 140 mm fan, a rear 140mm exhaust fan, and 4 140mm fans on my AIO radiator in push/pull exhausting out the top. So really I should never have a problem with cooling, especially once I get my GPU on water.
Love the ability to run cables behind the case. It's still somewhat tight back there depending on how many cables you have running. I've got a lot, with 2 hard drives, a blu ray player, video card, and everything else.
It does have a glossy finish, which in retrospect I'm not a huge fan of. This case nails what it sets out to do. Speaking as a new guy to PC building, there might be better cases out there, but this one is a great option. Only negative is the price, but maybe you can find it for cheaper now.
