NZXT Phantom case question

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I am going to get one of these if I can. I really want the red one. I wanna ask a question first though. At the moment my case is a mid one so I was wondering if my current motherboard can fit in this full size case(My motherboard is in my sig) thanks guys.

Your motherboard looks like an mATX, and the Phantom I believe is at least a mid-tower/ATX sized case. It should have plenty room and the correct threads for your motherboard yes, size wont be an issues either.

Phantom is actually a full tower (a small full tower, but def. bigger than a mid tower.)

It will fit fine.. but the Phantom is going to look empty with that little mobo inside!

She will look very empty with that little motherboard in there, also make sure you check your fan controller wiring, mine arrived all messed up (red wire where yellow should have been and 1 ground loose) and melted all the insulation on the molex power cable rendering it useless. NZXT have already shipped out a replacement which was nice of them.

I have the NZXT Vulcan and a number of people with it also have had minor issues, such as no LED's in fans, or minor damage while in shipping, and all have had nothing but good things to say about NZXT customer support. Giving out free fans and new cases without much at all in terms of pictures or anything.

OK thanks guys I just wanted to make sure so that I don't waste a bit of money. I thought it would though. Also I don't mind about the room. I really want this case cos I love the look of it and it has great cooling for my gaming needs. Thanks again.

the phantom is a huge case, just doesn't have unnecessary space above. The Phantom supports E-ATX, so that gives you an idea how much space there is for motherboards. My motherboard is MATX and looks absolutely tiny in there.

No regrets with getting this case, its large but looks awsome and has plenty of airflow.
