NZXT Phantom vs Cooler Master CM Storm Trooper


Whats the best case, for PRICE, FEATURES and QUALITY!


Opinions welcome!

The Storm Trooper hands down. The interior has more space, more fan mounts (all mesh filtered), I personally prefer the looks, solid construction (less plastic than the phantom but still A LOT) and more space behind the motherboard tray. This along with better cable management (more grommets and a larger space for a cpu 8 pin if you have a radiator in the roof).

Would you mind options on other cases?

I did a build with the Storm so I can only vouch for that. Good case, good airflow, decent cable management if you're creative.

Truth is you can't go wrong with either case but I'm going to be biased because I own a CM Storm Trooper. For $149 you get a lot for your money with the Trooper. Cooling is great, it has options for mounting radiators top and bottom. The construction is solid and well put together. It comes with tons of hardware and drive adapters. The looks aren't for everyone but to each his own.

Here it its up against my NZXT Vulcan, it's a beast of a case.

You can run your Hard drive cages front to back or side to side. I like that this case give you options, helps with cooling and wire management.

I Lan with my friends and for me a handle is a requirement for case. And with the storm trooper its executed really well and very sturdy. A few weeks ago I was in the same boat trying to decide between the Phantom and The Storm Trooper. I chose the Trooper because a lot of people I know IRL have the Phantom. I wanted something different and I'm really glad I chose the Trooper.
