    All the potency of the original Phantom in a tidier mid-tower frame?

    If they could get someone to back a limited edition white motherboard and power supply, then that would be special.

    Nice review ...

    Looks good and performs pretty well. Not sure if a saving of just £20 from the larger model is enough though ... No annoying side fan is a big plus in my book as I like tinkering.

    I had one of the larger Phantoms and liked it as well, with the fans turned down it was surprisingly one of the quietest cases on the market and seemed to not take too much of a hit in performance like this 410 does. I actually regretted upgrading to a Corsair 650D which in many ways was anything but an upgrade.

    Shame they haven't fixed the failing rubber grommets and for anybody looking to purchase one of these I would avoid the black version as it is a greasy fingerprint magnet - the white version would be ideal for me though as it does look stunning in real life.

    Re: Reviews - NZXT Phantom 410

    I have the larger Phantom running an overclocked system and its cooling performance is excellent. Yesterday I took delivery of the 410. All looks good so far and I have already installed an additional top 120mm fan and a 140MM fan on the inside of the HDD cage. I have reservations about the lack of fan filters. On the larger model I am using the new magnetic filters obtainable at Quiet PC and will likely install these on this 410. I have suggested to the design team at NZXT that this is something they need to look at but the rest of the case is very impressive and I look forward to transferring a 1366 socket system into this case.

    Re: Reviews - NZXT Phantom 410

    Scan used to stock the white NZXT Hale 90 PSUs which were cracking little units, but they no longer list them . Anyone from Scan able to advise if they will come back in (is this a knock on effect of the Tsunami as they were Japanese made, or at least heavily dependent on Japanese components according to their literature)

    From the right angle it reminds me a bit of a Star Wars storm trooper

    Re: Reviews - NZXT Phantom 410

    Having now transferred a 1366 system into this case and added a couple of extra fans it runs vey quietly and was easy to fit out--with one notable exception. As the HEXUS review rightly says the rubber grommets which are not secured are a real pain and it is almost impossible to refit them neatly when a thick shielded motherboard cable is threaded through. I have suggested to NZXT's design team that this neeeds urgent attention on the production line and decent fan filters would help a lot. No reply as yet which sort of lets the side down as the accompanying paperwork for the case encourages users to report problems.
