    Other than the retro speaker grills, I find this case quite good looking.

    I hate gamer cases overall, but i sort of like this white version. The only thing i dislike is that thing on bottom of front panel, it would be even better without that thing :D.

    I like how they've given it an angular design without hitting it with the ugly stick as Antec have been doing for the past couple of years..

    Love it. Mega props to Craig and NZXT for nailing it with the Phantom :D

    Hmm, might do my budget "I miss modding" build in this...

    I have always loved NZXT design, I am a fan of most of their cases, this one is no exception. It does remind me a lot of their older cases (mostly the Nemesis Elite). Looks like this case has a lot of potential.

    Yep, I think a lot of other manufacturers out there could benefit from talking to modders and enthusiasts in general. Kudos to NZXT for making the effort.

    So we have had 3 recent big tower cases reviewed, and your conclusion is still 'to wait for the next one?'

    Seriously, what is this case you have lined up? fractal R3? a long awaited update for the TJ07 from silverstone? what?

    FAIL. Constructive criticism is usually warmly welcomed by the reviewers, but this is just BS. Three comments and all you've done is bash the reviews without any further explanations? Seriously please just hit yourself in the face.


    And back to the topic: it's a nice looking case, and the idea behind it (manufacturer + modder) is something I've really been looking forward to! So many annoying glitches could be avoided if manufacturers actually listened to the community.

    Umm, on what planet do you live?

    All cases are tested in exactly the same way, with the same temperature sensors, same software, same components, same room and are all compared each other.

    Inconsistent forum post by Senilex. Muppet

    The question is, is it finally time to replace my grand old Antec p180? This review would suggest a yes. Haven't been able to find a photo of the black one though - do you chaps have any preview images?

    Like the amount of space and cable management.....should be future proof for years, as regards gfx card lengths....

    But the colour.....hmm, it looks like it's come straight off the set of the new Star Trek Enterprise bridge..

    Looks very impressive and great cooling too. With some extra fans in there it could be a beast. Making my R2 look a little less impressive.

    I like it!

    But I miss a photo of the MB side to appreciate the free space for cable routing.
