NZXT Phantom 410 Chassis Review

Inside the Red Phantom 410 Mid Tower Chassis




Inside the Phantom 410 we see more of the mix of black on red going on. The hardware box did break loose in transit, the tape just broke. I did find a loose thumbscrew, but it appears it caused no scratches or damages.




Now I see where that thumbscrew came from! The three optical bays have rubber tool-less latches with metal pins to hold the drive in place. The thumbscrews are kept here for use on the other side, but this way they are always close to where they are needed.




The top four hard drives and trays are built into a removable section with an unusual fan mount on it. This mount actually allows you to angle a fan to optimize what it's blowing on. Under the removable section, the bottom two drive bays are permanent, as they are riveted to the floor.




Lifting a tab at the bottom while pressing down on the top clip allows the midsection of the Phantom 410 to come right out. This will allow room for longer graphics cards and the wiring to them.




In the top of the chassis there is room for an additional 140mm fan if you wish, but again this area is capable of housing a radiator above the steel with fans here blowing up through said radiator!




I mentioned the motherboard tray is the same as we saw in the Tempest, but when painted red, it is much easier to see the structural bends and the contrast for the rubber grommets in the wire management holes. There are plenty of options with various tie points and holes to make for a very clean build.




The power supply gets rubber pads to sit on, and to be honest, once I add my power supply, there is no way I am going to get a fan in this hole in the floor. You will need a short PSU to have access to this option.




The black and white fan and the black grommets and expansion slot covers even look good from this angle; I really am surprised with how much I find myself falling for this redhead.




Behind the motherboard tray NZXT takes everything and bundles it together for shipping. This does make it all stick together and stay situated, so that it doesn't damage this paint job. In the shallowest parts you will find 25mm of room for wiring, more in other areas.




This bundle of wiring has everything from fan connection to the Molex to power the controller for those fans. You also get the entire front I/O wiring all sleeved in black to keep the black on red theme intact down to the last detail.
