titleIn order to break out of the normal mold NZXT took a different route than the other manufactures and paired up with PC Modder/Builder Craig Brugger (craigbru). Together they worked together to design the Phantom. The Phantom quickly became a popular case with both enthusiasts and case modders. Soon after, a white and black version was introduced, starting the trend of different color cases. When one of our members came across an orange and black version I couldn’t help but beg and plead to get one in. Considering the color combination is a Newegg exclusive I was really happy to find out they could get us one. Today we are FINALLY going to take a look at the NXZT Phantom LanOC Style.

Nice review... Sucks about the quality control on that one, couldn't believe it myself.

One question I had was were the LEDs orange or still the standard blue, I didn't see that in the write up.

They're orange LEDs in the fan controller.

I haven't been a fan of the phantom look until I read through this review it seems like a nice case. I like the color scheme, this would be cool if I wanted to do a Komets theme PC or something.
