The Red Phantom 410 Mid Tower Chassis

The front of the Phantom 410 takes on the Phantom look down the front with the multiple angles and the door covering the 5.25" bays. Down below there is a large mesh panel that allows you to very easily see the white blades of the 120mm fan behind it.

The release mechanism for my door took a very solid push to activate, but once opened it does expose the three drive bay covers that remove with the use of the black slider on the right. Essentially to add devices here, you don't need to remove the plastic bezel to do so.

As the front rounds over to meet the top plastic component, on the left side of the Phantom 410 there is the small reset button, large power button, the activity LED and the chassis power light is in the strip that bends around to the front.

With a ridge separating the sides, the right side offers the front I/O and a fan controller. There are jacks for audio followed by a pair of USB 2.0 ports and again followed by USB 3.0 ports. The fan controller offers three positions and can control up to six fans or 30W worth, whichever comes first.

The left side of the top panel at the rear of the chassis has a mesh panel that allows the 140mm blue LED fan seen here to blow out through this. There is room for thinner radiators under this cover if you wish to try your hands at water cooling in this chassis.

The door panel offers both a window to look at the top half of your system, but the bottom offers mesh for passive ventilation, and has holes for 120mm or 140mm fans. While not exactly like the original, the styling still comes through.

With a red chassis, even the southbound end of a northbound case is somewhat nice to look at. The contrast of the black grommets and expansion slot covers against all that bright red will induce smiles when looked at from any angle.

The right side panel of the chassis is flat, but when you get close enough, you will see yourself in the reflection of all this high gloss red paint.

Under the chassis you can see it is supported by rails essentially with six rubber pads applied to best support the chassis while not making or sliding on the surface it is placed on. The power supply gets a dust filter, but the optional 120mm fan mounting position in front of it does not.
