Specifications, Availability and Pricing

NZXT Phantom Enthusiast Full Tower Case 01 |

The Phantom arrives as a full tower built of steel and painted with an almost shiny coating inside and out. You will be able to find the Phantom in red, white, as well as the black I received. The top and front are covered in uniquely shaped plastic and steel mesh covers. The front incorporated a vent at the bottom and a door to cover the five 5.25" bays. The top incorporates the front I/O while on the other side there is a five switch fan controller system with 20W per channel. At the back of the top piece there is a large mesh area back by a fan. The side panel incorporates venting to not only match the overall design, but to add cooling in specific areas. Around the back you will find all the typical holes along with four holes for water cooling. With the use of a couple of brackets, there is room for a dual 120mm radiator to hang inside the top.

The outside of the chassis gets the same almost shiny paint job. Around the inside you will get seven 3.5" bays. Five of them are under the 5.25" bays while two are in a separate rack on the floor. The motherboard tray has many wire management holes with rubber grommets and support for most motherboards. To cool the Phantom, NZXT offers a good selection of included fans with even better options for the optional fans you can add later. The fan controller I mentioned is already pre-wired to all the included fans except for the door fans and the front fan, which in my case wasn't included. With the four fans that are included, the two 120mm fans in the door, the 200mm up top, and the 120mm in the back, air flow is already under control.

I'm being told to expect the Phantom to hit shelves sometime in September. I know that isn't very specific, but I bet they are waiting on a bit of input and making sure they have worked out all the finer details before unleashing this case on the public. All of the news blasts are already announcing an amazing MSRP. For the $139.99 price they are projecting, this case is in direct competition with cases like the older HAFs and the DF85 we just saw, but boasts features of the finer cases on the market. Time to give the box a spin and get to opening the package so I can finally get my hands on the Phantom.

After a year of gaming, Chad caught the OC bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and Chad has had many air and water setups. With a few years of abusing computer parts, he decided to take his chances and try to get a review job. As an avid overclocker, Chad is always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals.
