    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.

    I like it.If it wasn't a full tower it could be mu next case.but I won't use any bigger then a mid. No point in it when I fit everything in a midtower just fine.
    But on Topic nzxt made a nice case that seems like it would be good in airflow and wm.

    For $140 I'm definitely picking up this case, whether from sneekypeet or some retailer. I normally prefer micro builds... but this really just tops the charts. I like everything about this case... okay maybe I'm not a fan of the 2 secluded 3.5'' bays since it might get in the way of uber long power supplies, but overall NZXT has sold me on this one.

    $##!#! Where's the USB 3.0 on the front panel?!??!

    No, I just happened to help them with this case. I focused on the interior layout and design. :D

    Very cool. I saw a lot of "we" in that comment, just making sure it wasnt the frog in your pocket you were refering to:roll:

    Nice work, I'm about to open the box in like an hour and take a look at your handy work:D

    Lol, not a problem man. I hope you like what you see. There were a few features I wanted that didn't make the cut from a price point perspective, but overall it's pretty true to what we wanted to accomplish.

    Absolutely stunning for the price, I did like what I saw. Is a bit of a fingerprint magnet though;)

    This looks like a really nice case, I love the style and colors. I'm so glad to see NZXT putting in some real effort into designing their cases instead of taking the low road like how some other "budget" manufacturers have done *coughthermaltakecough*

    Edit: I'm watching the 3DGAMEMAN video review and man, this thing kicks ass. Do want badly.

    Looks like it. I know CoolIt was working on it, so I'd assume Corsair would make the same move.

    At first I didn't like the white but it is growing on me, does resemble alienware in the design but that's not a bad thing. I want one of these..

    You won't be disappointed with the HAF X. They're both really good cases.

    It arrives tomorrow and cannot wait. Not sure what to do though as I first want to braid all the cables but also want to put everything in the case and start it up. Going to have to control myself

    Omg! I just looked at the HAF.X and I think I changed my mind:twitch: I really dont like the external look of the X, but the features completely make up for it! I wish I could have the internals of the HAF X and outer design of the Phantom;)

    Did no one look at reviews before getting all excited about this thing? The cooling is somewhat awful unless you spend $40 in 200mm fans.
