NZXT Phantom 410 Chassis Review

The Build and Finished Product




I'm not typically a fan of doors, and I have to say up front, this one swings the wrong way. With the window on the left, the case will sit to my right, and the door will block you access.




Even so, the removable cover came right off when I released the latch and allowed me to slide the drive into place and is held securely with just the tool-less clip holding it in place. If you plan to travel with this, I would use the thumbscrews provided on the side of these drive bays - they are supplied for a reason.




I think I was able to produce a pretty slick looking build in this all red chassis. Everything I had to add to the chassis ended up being either a lot more black or the red stripes of the Mushkin RAM, and fits right in this chassis. I thought about adding red sleeved extensions, but I thought that would be too much.




With the door back on, the window gives you a great view of the CPU cooler and memory and extends on past including a view of the side of the optical drive bays. The mesh area blow offers passive flow as it is shipped, but the view of the cards through the mesh shows the fan placement offered is right on point with its location.




The back of the chassis gets a bit more colorful with the addition of the rear I/O shield and the off while DVI ports showing. The rest, consisting of the GPU brackets and the PSU, are both black and again makes even the back of the case look good.




It did take me a bit of time and maybe thirty or so zip ties, but I was able to undo that huge clump of wires, re-route some of them, clean up others, and make room for the 8-pin EPS and 24-pin cables to go in here. As stated in the manual, there is a minimum of 25mm here. Behind the drives and in the trays indented into the motherboard tray there is more room for thicker cables.




Just another angle, to enjoy the red Phantom 410, before I add some power and put the case through its paces!




Powered up, the Phantom 410 starts with a glow of blue as the chassis power light comes on with an intermittent flicker from the activity light just behind it. At first, since the fan is set at low speed from NZXT, there was not much of a glow inside of the case from the top fan, but once turned to high speed, you can now see the blue glow on the rear exhaust fan.
