    Hi, I'm considering a new build and here's the problem:

    I just love NZXT Phantom while the budget say's no since it priced over 100

    So I will appreciate it if anyone can recommend me a case between 50 and 100

    I know Phantom 410... But I feel it somehow ugly compared to Phantom.

    and...it seems that H2 has some problems with the pci slot and hdd shelves ?

    Or...if anyone have some idea about raven-04 ?

    Fractal Define R3 over the $100 budget by $2 but it is a superior case in everyway and it also comes in white.

    as you can see theres plenty of airflow and the case supports 140mm fans as well as 120mm, good cable management and plenty of space to fit in even the largest of graphic cards.

    Unfortunately this case doesnt come with a clear sidepanel and nor does Fractal supply one or have one on sale. But the case looks every bit as good without one if you dont care to kit your case up with more neons then an electro club night in full swing.


    :EDIT:

    this case also comes with USB3.0 as standard, so make sure you are getting the 'newer' model when you buy it

    I never say it must be a full tower...

    I just feel phantom 410 not so beautiful as the origin phantom because it shrinked.

    Maybe I care too much of the look.

    If the Phantom is what you really want it may be best to wait a little while and save up the extra funds and get what you really want.

    If you settle on something else you will always look at the case you bought as "not the Phantom" ;)
