Eclipse Stealth FX812R795 Extreme & Stealth Flight Pack Review

Up Close - The Case

Up Close - NZXT Phantom Case

As I'm sure Tom will tell you, photographing paint is one of the hardest things to do. Nearly every photograph of the NZXT Phantom ends up with the red looking a different hue, from deep blood red, through orange, and even to pinkish tones in certain lights. So it's worth remembering that the merged image on the right is the closest approximation to how it appears in real life, and any other colours are limitations of the camera. 

The case itself is nice with lots of airflow and, as we'll see on the next page, good internals. Personally the plastic front and top let the side down a little but this isn't a case review, and the Phantom is certainly a long way ahead of the Antec offerings that so flood the marketplace.

We love the look of Crossfire graphics cards. There is just something about them that speaks to the 'overkill' side of us. If one is good, two is better, and the XFX HD7950s in the Stealth certainly look the part, and the red DVI ports nicely match the case. Little details.

The Sabertooth motherboard has an almost overwhelming array of connectivity options. No matter what is on the end of your cable, you'll find a hole for it on in the back of the Stealth.

Opening the front flap on the Phatom reveals the LG BluRay reader/DVD Writer, and up the top we have all the useful front audio/USB that make our lives so much easier. Also on the right hand side you'll find a fan controller arrangement which has a handy partition diagram letting you know which area of the case is adjusted by each slider.

Another great review. Shame to see the use of such a lackluster CPU, but they must have had their reasons.Quote

I almost spat my tea out over my keyboard when I saw the CPU spec, very weird choice when you combine it with the price and their target buyer, knock off a few £100 it might make sense.Quote

Nice review, there's a lot of interesting stuff there.

I have an LG screen and love using cinema 3D for gaming - I've tried Skyrim and BF3 and the depth added is quite fantastic. I've been limited by my 1gb 5850s though so in 3D i've had to put the graphics on minimum to get playable fps. That will soon change and when it does I can't wait to play Shogun 2 co-op in 3D...

As for the CPU....that thing will be holding back the cards. Such a shame and not worth the price tag.Quote
