    NZXT proudly presents the Phantom Big-Tower in orange, another special edition of the successful chassis. All new Phantoms, including this variant also come equipped with USB 3.0 connectivity. Additional features of these enclosures are a five channel fan controller with 20W load capacity on each circuit, spacious interior, lighting which may be turned off, elaborate cable management, numerous anti-vibration measures and a water cooling ready design.

    The futuristic design of the NZXT Phantom makes it the perfect basis for an extravagant gaming PC as the case specialist has included unique shapes and lines which resembles that of modern high performance sports cars. A front door covers the drive bays, so that the chassis looks perfect, regardless of what type of drives you have installed. Besides the white, black, red and red/white color options, NZXT also offers a special pink variant and now the sleek black and orange version.

    In terms of cooling, the NZXT Phantom manages to blend form and function perfectly, as the black mesh elements do not simply look good, but also allows access to fresh to any installed fan. To keep temperatures down, two 120 mm fans have been installed in the side panel, pushing cool air across the hard drive bays, with another one in the rear along with a large and quiet 200 mm unit in the ceiling pulling air out of the case.

    Those wanting even more cooling performance can turn the interior of the Phantom into a wind tunnel by installing another 200 mm unit in the ceiling of the chassis and a 140 mm unit in the ceiling as well. In addition, one may exchange the two 120 mm units with a 200 or 230 variant. To keep things quiet, NZXT has included a high-performance fan controller with 5 channels and 20W capacity on each circuit.

    Dust filters on all intake areas ensure that the interior of the Phantom stays clean and presentable and that the bottom mounted power supply life span is kept at a maximum. For drive bays, the case allows for a slew of drives to be installed as it comes with five 5.25” and seven 3.5” inch drive bays. The chassis can easily be filled with high-end hardware as the rear hard drive cage may be removed to allow for large power supplies or components. To make the assembly process as easy as possible NZXT has employes thumb screws and tool-less locking mechanism throughout the entire case.

    The complete interior in all four Phantom variants has been painted in the matching color and the exact same high-end finish as the exterior. An opening in the mainboard tray gives easy access ot the backplates of CPU coolers, eliminating the need to remove the entire board from the chassis. In terms of space, the Phantom allows for large components like eATX and high-end graphic cards with up to 35 mm length to be installed. Externally all Phantom variants offer an I/O panel equipped with USB 2.0 & 3.0, along with a pair of audio connectors and eSATA port, while the power and reset buttons have been seamlessly integrated into the overall design of the chassis.

    Those interested in water cooling will find that the Phantom manages to impress in this area as well. The combination of four openings in the back of the chassis and ability to install a 240 mm radiator in the ceiling should cater to even the most extreme scenarios. A switch to deactivate the LED lighting of the included case fan has been embedded in the rear of the chassis as well.

    The USB 3.0 versions of the NZXT Phantom Big-Tower are available immediately for a price of 139.90 Euro exclusively at www.caseking.de.

    That's one killer looking case. Add an extra 2-3 expansion slots and price it under $150 and you've got a deal.

    Suddenly black+orange is looking sexier than black+red.

    Other companies need to take note. This is how you design a futuristic/sleek case without it looking cheap and tacky.

    Edit:
    Black and red's always been over-rated imo. It's about time some other colours started getting a look-in.

    The orange is brighter and stands out better, it actually has a cleaner look to it IMO. That Gibabyte boards HS's are over the top though!

    That's just ugly... eek. Sorry, even a DFI board can't make this case look good. It's clear orange, not toned down or such.

    I actually like that. Just a lil orange accents and not to over powering. The mobo backing does look a lil bright but your not gonna see much of it anyways.

    T77snapshot should be all over this one :)

    yea this would look so freaking nice with a X58A-OC or X79-UD7
     
  22. John Doe Guest

    Man, you guys have no taste. The X58A-OC is even uglier than the mobo tray of this case. Pure orange ew, it just gets on my stomach. Wish I had taken a pic of my old generic server case, you know, one of those Super Full towers. Now that's how a case should look like. Plain, cold hard steel. Have a look at the older Chieftec cases (German made), then this. It's a day and night difference. These things look like a toy in comparison.
