Unfortunately I can't post my video review of it until the 28th. TBH, I had a bit of apprehension about the Plastic bezel and top panel. After seeing it in person, they're actually very nice and will surprise a lot of other people who think they will suck. They're constructed from 1/8" thick ABS plastic. You could drop it on the floor w/o worrying about the pegs popping off. I'm thoroughly impressed. The chassis layout is very well thought out as well. I actually liked the tool-less features in which I normally despise because most are cheap plastic. I'm gonna set my alarm to wake at midnight to open the video link the night before on my YouTube channel. I predict the Phantom will do very well.

Sold!

Now to find one for sale.

I can live without a side window for the features that has to offer.

Yup. That looks like my next case.

7 HDDs with good cooling AND SSD support.

Crap loads of fan mounts. AND built in fan controller.

Just hope the RED option is "candy apple" red. THEN I could live with all that plastic!

:)

Sooo whats the damage on the old pocket book for it?

couldn't have painted the front mesh grilles for 5.25 drives white?
fan on top has a very goofy placement.
the case looks better without the top panel.
sliders for fan controller?
those blue leds on the fan controller will get VERY annoying.

Theme of the case is black/white, I don't see whats wrong with them being white.

I like how it completes the "curvy" design. It's also there to allow for a rad up top

Sliders can't be that bad, it isn't supposed to be the BEST fan controller ever and sliders will give you enough control... very easy to set to 1/3 speed or 3/5 or something.

Take the LEDs out?

I really like how the top panel is easily removed and hope more manufacturers do this. I also predict once it gets into people's hands who see it first hand, and they start talking about it how it's not flimsy, then the sales will kick into overdrive. It's a matter of how long before the word of mouth starts throughout the community.
