Up Close:  Interior Base, Rear and Roof

NZXT take the award for the smallest PSU anti vibration mounts we've ever seen on a case.  They look like somebody has taken a hole punch to a slim sheet of rubber.  Comedy vibration mounts aside, there's really no limit on the size of PSU you can but into the 240, although the cables on those longer than 160mm will start to obscure the bottom 120mm fan mount.

As the exterior rear is pretty standard, so too is the interior rear.  We do though like the counterpointing black vented PCI covers and black surrounded white bladed fans as they add a degree of contrast to the otherwise white interior.  Up in the roof we get our first taste that along with 120mm and 240mm fans, water cooling may be on the cards.

In their marketing blurb NZXT claim the Phantom 240 has "More than 20 cable tie points".  It seems they got as confused counting them as we did, as there are so many we came up with a different number each time we did so.  There are in fact 24...No hang on 25...23...No it definitely 24.  Anyway, you get the idea, there's shed loads and they're well spaced as are the cable management holes themselves.

This little collection of holes and tie points around the PSU outlet and front I/O inlet are an indication of the thought that has gone into cable management.  As is the generous 17mm of space on tap.

It's weird seeing a case that has curves instead of angles.
It looks strange, but in a good way. Not a case I would buy, but a good case non the less.Quote

Awesome little budget case.

As SieB said, not something that I would use for a personal build, but definitely one to go on the list of cases to recommend to other people who are looking to do budget builds.

Awesome to see that we're getting a lot more case for the money compared to 3 years ago too!Quote
