NZXT Unveils Crafted Series Phantom Full Tower Case

NZXT, a company built on realizing the dreams of gamers worldwide, is proud to announce Phantom, the company's most elegant and intelligent chassis design to date. Phantom exudes sophistication with pristine contours and a robust menu of high performance features that will satisfy the demands of even the most discerning PC enthusiast.

Phantom's extensive cooling capabilities include 7 fan cooling options with dual 200mm, single 230/200mm, triple 120mm, and front 140mm fans. For enhanced control and expandability, NZXT includes dual radiator support, quad watercooling cutouts, and an integrated fan controller with up to five 20W channels.

Extensive Compatibility and Expandability - Features support for larger heat sinks, graphics cards, and E-ATX motherboards enabling enthusiasts to include any of today's hottest components. Vast space within the enclosure allows for 7 hard drives with SDD support and up to five 5.25" bays.

Simple Installation - Phantom celebrates an array of innovative features designed to enhance every stage of the build. Meticulous wire management is easily attainable with large spacing behind the motherboard. The innovative all-new 5.25" screwless rails make installing and swapping HDDs an effortless process.

Additional Advanced Features - Further distinct features include an LED on/off button to control case lighting, rubber PSU and case feet to reduce vibration, easily removable front and top panels, and top mounted USB, Audio/Mic, and E-SATA ports.

"This is the most intelligent and elegantly designed chassis we've ever conceived" said Johnny Hou, Founder and Chief Designer at NZXT. "The profoundly unique contours combined with a highly functional, robust feature set solidifies Phantom as one of the most innovative case designs on the market."

NZXT reached out to the enthusiast community and enlisted the design input from the renowned modder of the L.O.S.I.A.S., Rogue, and OSIDIAS Projects, Craig Brugger, to aid in the creation of Phantom. "NZXT has shown that there are still companies willing to listen to the community, and that collaboration can lead to innovation and a product with few compromises," remarked Brugger.

Phantom will be available in early September in White, Red, and Black for the MSRP of $139.99. For more information, visit this page.

That interior is gorgeous, need a windowed side panel to show it off, especially with the cable management inside, thats my only gripe of this lovely looking case (I like windows :D)

Looks very workable. Personally, I'd prefer an exterior that's a little more "understated", the alien spaceship shell is a bit much.

Ooh, I have every intention of owning this case!!:rockout:
A nice upgrade from my Apollo.
NZXT you have a sale... if you agree with my email I'm sending you just now and make it with a side window that supports a fan, like the Apollo does.:o

EDIT: why not 4 frontal USB ports?!:banghead:

Yeah I saw this in my MaximumPC mag and fell in love with the ad. Corsair really hit home with the rubber grommeted cable cutouts and NZXT listened and took off with it. Given the options, look, and price NZXT has a win here and for 140 for a full tower decked out like that? Very nice. I still want a Corsair 800D or 700D but I d love to have this too.

I like it. Its one of the only cases that I like in white too. I think my next case is going to be a Fractal though- this case is pretty loud in the looks dept for my daily driver.

The case was designed with efficient air cooling mind. Lots of air with minimal sound. We wanted to keep everything as cool as possible for those not focusing on watercooling. Maybe we'll focus on water in the future, but that's still a small market comparatively speaking.
