Pros: Tons of room for ANYTHING. Built in fan controller. Looks great, very cool!
Cons: Reflective surface smudges easily. Only uses NZXT type 200mm fans. Side fan may not fit with certain cpu coolers. Hope you have enough room for it!
Let's move on to one of the greatest features of the NZXT, it's a cooling MONSTER! A built in fan controller up top is pre-configured for your use. Just connect them to a power supply, connect your side fans and everything should get to a whirling start. The case includes 4 pre installed fans, 2 side fans, one rear exhaust and an incredible 200mm top fan. With room for 1 more 200mm side fan, another 200mm top fan, and a smaller fan in the front, this thing almost takes off with the amount of air it gets. The Phantom is in every sense of the word a 'Wind Tunnel'. Some users may be dissapointed in not being able to tell how fast the fans are actually going, as the controller only lets you guess to how fast it goes. Luckily the Phantom fans are very quiet even at full speed. Leaving the case fans at full speed all the time ensures incredible air flow and proper cooling. With so much room, you can even stick a few more fans in the case if properly secured. Can't go wrong when a case is cold to the touch!
With that said, mind your fingers when touching the case. The reflective finish smudges easily, while may also be annoying to some users. The optical bay is covered with a hinge that while sleek may be annoying to some users as it reflects whatever is in front of it. Luckily, it's incredibly easy to remove and attach back on. If looking to attach another 200mm fan you'll have to buy specified NZXT type fans, as others will simply not fit unless modified. With how spacious the unit is, and it is great, it's also large. Be aware that you'll need a good amount of room to have it sitting around.
The price of the case is incredible, with proper searching you can find it for less than 100$, and the quality of the build makes that a steal. Get this case without any doubt, you will love it!
