Default NZXT Phantom(Bck/Blue) Or Blue H440?

Hey I could love some of you guys to recommend which out of these cases for my new build:NZXT Phantom (black-blue), NZXT H440 Black and blue,NZXT S340 Or you guys could say another case which you think would be better.(Blue/Black please)

Im kinda going for like 4 HDD and maybe 1 SSD so it would need the right sized area for them,I would also like room for like 2 10" graphics cards,and I would love a basement for the PSU. I think that's all I really to be specific on,Please reply or contact me if you need to ask me about anything!

I'd probably say the H440 is best based on your requirements. It has tonnes of 3.5" disk bays plus the two SSD mounts on the PSU shroud. The S340 is awesome too but only has 2-3 3.5" disk bays. The next model you could look at would be the Phanteks Enthoo Pro, but it's a fair bit physically bigger.

It's a good deal as well with the removable PSU shroud and has lots of storage and airflow options. Not quite as well built as the H440, but quite good if you aren't ripping it apart and taking advantage of the modular features.

The original Phantom is dated and eclipsed by the Phantom 530, 410 and 240, but the 240 only comes in white with black trim.

Heyyo,

I'd definitely go for the H440 over the Phantom 530... some issues that really annoy me on my 530 is the 200mm mounts on the front and the top... they only fit those low profile 200mm fans, not ones with bigger mounting points like the bitfenix spectre pro fans I have... plus the fan intake on the side of the case? It's not filtered and dust just builds up like crazy on it... so I have mine taped off.
