PC cases are out there by the shiploads, it's hard to exactly know what you want, sure, you can stick a motherboard and the other vital components inside them, but sometimes it's the little things that make the difference between a pc case and a pc case.
This brings me to the NZXT Phantom, quite frankly, it's bonkers, with it's looks you'd think it's going to attack you, this thing really does look like an alien, with a top fan so large you'll worry it'll take off for world domination, it's a looker, no two ways about that.
But open it's side and you'll find a huge space to work on, many tooless ways of installing drives and expansion modules, this thing is massive, in fact if you shouted in it you'd probably hear an echo, it's so big that you might lose your motherboard inside it, okay, maybe an exaggeration, but still, this case certainly won't disappoint you in terms of adding on and installing stuff.
Nice little touches too, all the wires inside are black and wrapped nicely, nothing worse than seeing a coloured spaghetti junction when you open it up for the first time.
The Phantom as standard comes with a top 200mm fan, two 120mm fans on the side for cooling your hard drives and a rear exhaust fan, complete with a built in fan controller, but if you want the full monty you can install a front 120 or 140mm intake fan at the front, and 2 more 200mm fans, one at the size providing immense cooling and another one at the top, the good news is the fan controller at the top has the wiring already in place for these extra fans, making extra fans a breeze for installing.
You also have 2 usb ports and a headphone and mic jack installed at the top as well, with the wiring nicely loomed.
The price is steep, but what a case, recommended.
