Final Thoughts

Closer Look Inside:

Once we get the side off this case you immediately notice that there is a ton of hard drive slots (7 in total). Also you'll probably notice even more fans (120mm fan in the rear, 200mm fan in the top, with space for another 200mm fan in the top). The inside of the case is all steel and you'll have more than enough room to get all of your hardware into this case without any problem.

The front panel of the NZXT Phantom opens up to reveal the 5 5.25" bays on the front of the case. This panel closes and has magnets in the door to prevent it from swinging open on its own.

One of the interesting features about the front of the Phantom is the 5.25" drive bay covers. Normally these covers on most cases just pop out (and you usually have to reach around to pop them out), but the NZXT Phantom case offers covers that easily pop out from the front by release the clip on the right hand side. While this might not seem like a big feature, as someone who installs a lot of different systems in a lot of different cases I can't tell you how many times I've cut myself fighting with 5.25" bay covers trying to get them removed, I actually almost cried when I saw how easy these panels went in and out.

Another feature that adds a bit more value to the NZXT Phantom case is the inclusion of 5 NZXT Premium cables (pictured below). Included you'll get:

  • 1 - 24 Pin MB Individual Sleeved Extension Cable (250mm)
  • 1- 6 to 8 pin Video Card Individual Sleeved Adapter (250mm)
  • 1 - Molex to 2 SATA Individual Sleeved Cable (200mm)
  • 1 - 8 pin MB Individual Sleeved Extension Cable (250mm)
  • 1 - 6 pin Video Card Individual Sleeved Extension Cable (250mm)

These cables are pretty nice and a great "added value". You can buy these cables individually online for anywhere between $3.99 and $7.99 per cable.

So there we go, that's what the NZXT Phantom is all about, let's move onto the next section of our review.
