Also, it looks like some people are having problems with phantom?

Just sayin'... my buddy's pretty happy with colossus is all.
you do realize the problem was solved right? and those lines on the colossus are so tacky!

How was the problem solved? It sounds like the guy is still waiting for nzxt service.

As for the lines, I think they look great, but the look of any case is pretty subjective. I think the haf x looks fugly, but that doesn't mean its not a popular choice. For me, the phantom looks cheap and plasticky, but others are going to dig it. For looks, it really comes down to personal preference. I can only comment on things I've seen in person.

But on a spec level, the colossus beats phantom hands down. Usb 3, soft touch, s3 storage, cable management (those grooves on the front are hella cool), pwm fan control, tool-free...

If I were looking for full towers for my next build, I'd probably go with colossus, but hey, its great we have so much choice out there!

Soft touch? All it does is get oily......I had a Macbook Black and it was sooooo greasy.
