Conclusion

Summing everything up, we’d call the NZTX Phantom a spectacular-looking and efficient system case. It is going to be liked by users who can appreciate its exterior design besides its functionality and manufacturing quality. The downside is that the Phantom is large and heavy and may not fit into some computer desks designed for ordinary computers.

Highs:

  • Excellent exterior design
  • Huge interior
  • Five-channel fan controller
  • High-quality preinstalled fans
  • Can accommodate up to seven HDDs of 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch form-factors
  • Handy screw-less fastening mechanisms
  • Can accommodate a radiator of a liquid cooling system
  • High quality of manufacture

Lows:

  • Insufficient protection with dust filters
  • HDD fastening mechanism might be better
  • No external 3.5-inch bay

The smaller NZXT Vulcan is a good and, quite importantly, inexpensive product which combines compactness with an attractive exterior and proper cooling. So if you don’t like huge computers, you may want to consider the Vulcan.

Highs:

  • Discreet exterior design
  • Compactness
  • Can accommodate two long graphics cards
  • Dual-channel fan controller
  • Good ventilation
  • High quality of manufacture

Lows:

  • Does not support 2.5-inch HDDs
  • Insufficient protection with dust filters.
