Case Build and Finished Product
With the plastic trays so loose, and the potential for them to move around a bit even with a drive in it, NZXT has raised sections on the side with holes in them to allow users to send a screw through the metal, and it pass it into a hole in the plastic rail to keep it from sliding out.
We left the HDD cage out of the chassis to show its potential for video cards, but with the fan installed in the lower position at the front, it will not free up much stock air flow. Off to the left, we find the motherboard and PSU fit well, and the Phantom 240 offers a very clean look when completed.
The dust shield snapped right in, the card aligns well, and it is no fuss to install with the thumbscrews. We also found the PSU slides right into place, and the holes to mount the PSU line up right on spot with the chassis holes.
We did a bit of cleaning and re-wiring back here just to get the front I/O wiring away from the thick 24-pin lead. With all of the holes and punched out tie points, we had no issues finding a way to keep things tidy, and even with much more gear, wiring can be easily tamed in this design.
This is yet another chassis that does not change from our initial images, well, except for the view through the large window. The angular design shows just a hint of the lower drive bays, but it definitely affords a great view of all of your installed goodies.
Once we powered up the Phantom 240, if not for the white LED, and the occasional flicker of the HDD activity LED, we would find it tough to tell it was running. The fans deliver 31 dB of noise at one foots' distance from the back, but are nearly inaudible behind the panel and mesh of the front.
