Final Thoughts about the NZXT Phantom 240
Despite being a $70 case, the NZXT Phantom 240 does not come short in looks nor in performance, delivering impressive aesthetic and style at an affordable price point. The glossy finish is exquisite blending seamlessly across the metal side panel and the plastic top and front covers. The cooling expansion options from the two default 120mm fans is also remarkably accommodating with additional radiator support at the top area.
A few perks that most builders have come to expect such as removable dust filters for the intake are absent (except for a mesh dust filter at the bottom) and fan hub/controller but these are something that could be done without as long as the essentials are present such as comfortable cable management, 8-pin power supply routing, enthusiast graphics card support and flexible CPU cooler support.
Although it may not be as revolutionary as the original Phantom case or the new H440, the Phantom 240 nonetheless offers remarkable value and unparalleled quality in its class. NZXT is redifining budget chassis quality with this offering and it should be interesting if their competitors can respond or will even dare to. A $70 case no longer means compromising in quality and features as the NZXT Phantom 240 has shown, earning it the Modders-Inc Must Have award.
