Rated 4 out of 5 by Burgess1981 My view on the NZXT Phantom Enthusiast USB 3.0 case
The case while it does look aesthetically pleasing I am finding that since moving my PC parts from one case to the NZXT My I am noticing noises that I did not hear before so I would not say it is as quiet as what everyone makes it out to be
I do like the space down the motherboard side for cable management
not to keen on the way around SSD's go in to it which causes me to have to use a extra Sata power cable then we should need to
Pro's - Looks nice & Good for cable management
Con's - Not as quiet as what people make it out to be but it's ok

Rated 2 out of 5 by HerrGeorge The case itself is good, but the condition it arrived in was not so.
Well, first thing is first, I rate the value and quality of this case as 'good' because it is a good case. It has plenty of room (e.g. you can easily fit 2 large graphics cards in here and still have some room left), plenty of drive bays, some positions to add extra fans etc.
However, the reason as to why I gave this product an overall rating of 2 stars is due to the condition that it had arrived to me. First of all, a wire that connects to the top-backside fan was in the way of the area where the ports are supposed to go, and because it was a short wire, it was a bit worrying trying to move it out of the way without snapping it. I had to move it out of the way otherwise my motherboard would not align up properly.
Secondly, on the back of the case where you can remove these metal pieces so that PCI-E expansion cards can be installed; well the screws for these were very tight. So tight in fact, that it caused the screws to round as I unscrewed them. Therefore, my father had to sort of... try to snap them out. Now our next step is to go to the local iron monger to purchase some new bolts etc so that I can have some secure-sturdy screws.
Hmm... overall I was not very pleased with the condition that this case had arrived in, but I will state that this is likely a one-off and that I will still likely be purchasing more items from Scan in the future. However, if this occurs again, I will unfortunately have to shop elsewhere.
