Up Close:  Front, Rear and Base

The high gloss finish to the Phantom 240 really has to be seen to be believed, as does the colour match between the painted white of the chassis and the plastic of the front and top fasciae.  We're also very pleased with the quality of the shut lines, with only the wide angle lens on the camera showing up and real gaps we could find.

Opening up the front door reveals three 5.25" bays along with their removable plastic blanks.  We're not too sure there's a real need for three bays these days but then as this case doesn't have a fan controller then we guess there's a small excuse to be had.

With the door shut you really wouldn't know it was there so good is the fit.  Below it there lies a mesh area, again unfiltered, this time covering the front intake where a single white bladed 120mm fan is fitted.  There's room above it for a second 120mm unit if you should decide you need a bit more airflow.

The rear of the 240 is pretty standard, with a 120mm fan grill providing exhaust for the fitted fan behind.  Below this we find a pair of grommeted tubing holes beside the seven Black vented expansion slot covers.  Down at the bottom of course there's the ATX PSU cut out.

The case stands on four dense plastic feet which have thin rubber caps glued to their underside providing a stable platform for the case and lifting it a good inch off the deck.  A large single piece of flimsy mesh filter clips awkwardly into slots and provides filtered air to the PSU and base mounted fan areas.

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
