NZXT Phantom 240 Review
The front and roof panels are removed with a good few firm tugs. Once inverted it's easy to see how they practically mirror each other helping understand why the case has such a strong sense of visual symmetry. The image below right shows the roof panel which although spacious enough to accept a 240mm radiator has plastic tags and rods which will make the fitting of anything much larger or longer very troublesome indeed.
Yup, that's the H230 chassis alright, only with two bloody great holes in the roof for the 120mm and 240mm fans. lineage aside stripping off the panels does afford us a good look at the chassis and if you're a modder it's almost impossible to look at a bare chassis with out getting al dewy eyed and dremel fixated. The eagle eyed amongst you will also have noted all the black rivets. This means that the case was put together after painting, which in turn means that it will come apart easily after the rivets have been drilled out as there aren't layers of paint still gluing the panels together.
We mentioned it was possible to get a 240mm rad up here, anything up to 35mm think in fact. Problem is though that those tabs sticking out near where the end tanks will be actually obscure the G1/4" port threads and so make getting a rad up here an impossibility if you're not willing to trim them off. Shame really as if it were not for this oversight we'd be waxing lyrical about how you can get good sized rads up in the roof.
