post #13181 of 15204
So I bought this case when I was building my first build and thought of everything except the color scheme, now I want to change it to make it look right. I have a black with orange trim case. Anyone have any good opinions of which color fans I should use? Btw I plan on using all fan slots. And maybe a cold cathone tube for the black area that doesn't get lit by anything (near the SATA ports).

Btw I was thinking of going with Orange and white or maybe green but I am scared that will clash. It sucks I wanted to get the black with green trim but they were out of stock so I settled for the orange one.

Orange is better than green.

Use white light imo.. always white. Let your hardware do the color scheme and then use white light to light it up. the problem with LED fans is they flood the area with color and then all the detail gets lost.

I'm in a no more BS mood today, how about the rest of you . . . .

It was a little cute at first, but now I'm absolutely tired of being treated like a little kid right before Christmas.

Enough of the carrot on the stick crap.

I'm at the point where I don't friggin' care how great the evolve is, the silliness has just totally turned me off to where I'd buy an Azza Genesis instead.

Sure it's fugly, but they didn't treat me like a 10 year old introducing it.


If some RGB lighting is the best they can do, it's time to get back to the drawing board.

No longer amused, . . . or interested

I totally agree (and I've said it before).

It's just a case. All this teasing is totally inappropriate.

And the first Phantom didn't set the standard for PC cases... It may have helped introduce white cases to the consumer but that may have been around the same time smartphones started selling in white whereas they used to be only black.

What I've seen in TTL's video doesn't look any better than the first, actually it looks weird and I don't like it. I don't know how long it'll be before it's finally unveiled but I think many will br disapointed (looking at those who've been waiting for a month or two to get a case).

Such a Diva... wink.gif

It's just a marketing method to gain interest through mystery and curiosity. Have a nice bowl of ice cream, chocolate, and cheer up! smile.gif


FYI Steelkevin, just over 2 years ago the Phantom was delayed several months from when it was announced in the spring of 2010. We were told a August release, then September, but it wasn't fully stocked in retail until the fall (Oct.-Nov.). A few trickled out in the summer, just enough to sell out instantly. It created quite a stir as potential buyers had to wait weeks/months. One factor mentioned was they sold way more cases in pre-order than they thought they would, and they had to ramp up production. Then there were production delays due to a few defects. Those early Phantoms (I have one) had a few fitting and spacing errors, so NZXT addressed the issues to correct them at the production site, and worked with customers to correct the problems of those cases already sold.

So, the waiting game is nothing new to the NZXT world, just to new customers/owners... thumb.gif

*Here's the thread I first saw the Phantom back in 8/2010. Notice how some liked it, some disliked it. Once it was fully available and the word got out, the likability and popularity took off and now we're at page 660!

I find it fun, I'm not in the market for a case but I'm sure interested. Relax guys its all good. NZXT is just doing their part.
post #13188 of 15204
I agree with Kgtuning NZXT is only doing its part and lot of big companies do the same like james bond and as a teenager i find it rather enjoyable

@Sandshark

Didn't know about that but that's far from normal.

Atleast their RMA and reps are great wink.gif

Well, Darlene, I'm not sure what pushed you into a bad mood, but, I hope you cheer up. I understand where you're coming from, however, there was never any intention to treat anyone like a child.

Personally, I think it's a fun way to introduce a product. The chassis really is an excellent successor to the current Phantom. Moreover, the community helped push a lot of ideas into the design of the chassis. Without the community, NZXT wouldn't have been able to improve upon the design of the Phantom like they have. The designers have learned a lot from the community's feedback, and from feedback from the Switch 810 as well.

As with the original Phantom, some will love it, some will hate it. Time will tell, but, if the current gen is any indication, the Phantom is one of the most modded chassis here on OCN. I have no doubt the new one will be even bigger.
