Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The Phantom 410 is mostly steel for the chassis frame and panels with smaller versions of similar plastic panels on the top and face to give this chassis that unmistakable look of the Phantom name. Instead of being full tower, the Phantom 410 is a mid tower chassis with room for Mini-ITX, Micro-ATX and ATX motherboards inside. With a good idea already of the way it looks, I saw the side panel is much different with the window and mesh combination, but still has a shape that lends to the original design. The most notable thing to me about this chassis, as I received the Phantom 410, NZXT is offering my first look at a red chassis! I know it's been done before, but the color and look of this chassis definitely put a spring in my step with this particular review.
It does use the frame, motherboard tray and optical bays that we saw in the Tempest 410 Elite, there are enough unique features to not only make the obvious external difference, but inside there are new tricks added to set the Phantom 410 above the Tempest. It still holds three 5.25" bays with access to the removable covers behind the door, still being able to be accessed from the outside, so there is little need to remove the front bezel, but the hard drive rack has changed. Two are securely riveted to the floor of the chassis. Above that there is a section of four that can be simple removed with two clips to allow for much longer video cards to be installed. These drives all use black plastic trays that work with both 3.5" and 2.5" drives. The last thing to cover about the interior, aside from the fans, the seven expansion slot covers, grommets, hard drive trays, and the various thumbscrews which are all black, the rest of the interior is painted in a shiny red to match the outside of the Phantom 410.
Cooling in the chassis is handled with three fans as it is shipped from NZXT. There is a 120mm in the front as the main intake to the chassis and this fan has a black frame with white blades, and is visible through the mesh in the front bezel of the case. The rear exhaust fan is a direct match to the intake fan. The black frame with white blades here really stands out against the red interior. The fan you won't see unless you are looking down into the top mesh of the chassis, you will see its effects. This 140mm fan that is installed into the top of the chassis has blue LEDs glowing when it is in use. It is sort of odd that a red chassis has blue LEDs, but it does match the blue LED of the power and HDD activity lights found on the top left corner of this chassis.
As I looked to buy this chassis I found that it is pretty widely available, and in red too. The Phantom 410 also comes in a black and a white version, and all three cases are priced exactly the same. Out of the eight locations I could have purchased this case, the $99.99 listing at Newegg.com is the second best once shipping is factored in. Outletpc.com does have a slightly better deal for $7 less. This pricing does put this in direct competition with the likes of the Corsair, Fractal Designs, and even NZXT's own H2 chassis. I will keep that all in mind as I progress with the review, but I have to just say again, the sheer fact of all this shiny red I am looking at is really slick and I do like it just for that fact alone. Let's see what else should make this the chassis to choose over many others at this price range.
