NZXT PHANTOM vs HAF X vs HAF 932

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Haf x Vs NZXT Phantom VS Haf 932

I have narrowed my selection to these three options. I like the price on the phantom although I like the features on the Haf x. Im not sure if the haf 932 is the sweetspot or not.

What I want to get out of this topic is well known flaws of each case, if there are any, because they usually give me the best idea on which case is for me.

I really appreciate all the help, but I'm not open to suggestions as I have done quite a bit of research.

Thanks in advance.

Besides the fact it doesn't come with the 3 fans that its missing, I really have no problems with my NZXT Phantom. I love the fan controller, and the overall space that I have for additional things such as water cooling. Oh ya I have the Xiggy Dark Knight so I believe there's a clearance issue with the side 200mm fan and the tall heat sinks.

I read on another topic saying you could call NZXT and have those fans sent to you?? Do you happen to know about this?

The only thing that bothered me about my NZXT Phantom was after my Antec Kuhler 620 install. I had the 200 mm side fan and the side door wouldn't close and I had to remove the fan. Other than that love the case!

I love both the phantom and the Haf X but I went with the Haf X before the phantom came out. The Haf X is awesome with lots of room, fans, etc if you want to do any water-cooling. The main flaw I could see someone having with it would be that it is enormous so If you don't have alot of desk space you may be in trouble. But either way they both are really good cases but uniquely different.

Go for the haf x,if you have the room for it.

The options on the haf x are great and you have great room inside the case to work around during building. Also the airflow on the haf x is very good.

I also was doubting between the phantom and haf x. and i went for the haf x
should be here in 10 days or so.
