The Front Panel

The NZXT Phantom 410 has a door, which opens to the left, covering its 5.25” bays. Based upon how they are implemented, doors can be an Achilles Heel for the case. For example, some products have the USB ports and on/off switch behind the door, so you must open the door every time you want to connect a USB device or turn on your computer. In such cases, we prefer that the case simply didn’t have the door. On the NZXT Phantom 410, however, all buttons and connectors are not located behind the door, so what we’ve just described doesn’t occur.

The case has three 5.25” bays. See Figure 5.

The reviewed case comes with one 120 mm fan installed at the bottom part of the front panel. This fan comes installed on the single-channel, three-speed fan controller available. No technical specifications are provided. You can install a second 120 mm fan or replace the 120 mm fan that comes with the case with a 140 mm model. There is no air filter on the front panel for these fans.
