new case descision

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I am looking for opinions between two cases

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133188

and

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811146074

I'm looking for which you feel is better for cable management/cooling/general awsomeness.

I've been using my cosmos for 4 years and am tired of the cable management problems i have with it.

I'd go for the Phantom, better looking imo, cheaper, just as spacious, and great cable management options, it looks awesome.

yes it should fit any coolerm I've sen NDH14's in there so you're good.

Fan controller should work with just about any fan, probably not the CPU fan. but its good for any chassis fans

well If it makes you happy there is a USB 3.0 version of this case, I don't know what countries already have it, but its not in the US.

according to a mod from the NZXT forum
Quote:
Our apologies for keeping you guys in the dark. We are working on updates for the NZXT Phantom. USB 3.0 is being considered, but not completely confirmed.
My vote is still on that case

Edit: plus there are cool gizmos like so
