    Default NZXT Phantom

    NZXT first previewed the Phantom at Computex 2010 and then only as a little teaser to whet our appetites. The release date is now scheduled for early September at the latest and will be available in Black, White and Red with a suggested MSRP of $139 USD. We've got the pre-release first look so there may be some minor tweaks before the case goes retail, but you can expect most of it to be the same. Let's dive in.

    Good review Kip, not a bad looking case not my cup of tea personally, it's a little garish IMO.

    First, excellent review. Well written.
    Second, you should include this official video in the review:

    (NZXT put it out a week ago, but didn't say anything. 44 views... sad.)

    Always a pleasure reading your reviews KIPPER.
    Thanks!

    The only downsides to this case that I see are the fact that the left side fans have to be removed if using a cooler that is 180mm in height or larger and the fact that the motherboard tray is not removable. Other than that the case looks like a really decent case for the price.

    it's nice if our reviews have a short video in it you can't insert any video if you don't produce it. copyright!

    Also making video create more work for reviewer, editing and the final cuts. And I'm haven't account about the time audition to get a right actor .

    BTW, I'm looking for a sexy actress for my upcoming chilled water cooling review. Do guys know any body interesting in this position. This is going to be wet and cold enviroment shoting though

    Is he good looking enough to be a model.....didn't I mention this is going to be ice cold shooting room, so this is might not suitable for him with the speedo...if you know what I mean

    Ladies are more pleasant in this type of shooting IMO..

    Logan went to a nudest colony. I just know it. He will have absolutely no tan lines except for the strips from the redneck 70's lawnchair he traded for his old hardware from his yard sale(no cup holder)!

    You must be referring to his private measuring stick. I am sure it would have filled the gap between the GPU and HDD.
