So, I am trying to weigh out which case to buy, I personally prefer the Phantom's style over the Trooper, and plus I like the built-in fan controller on the Phantom, not to mention can hide drives, though I have heard it appears to be weak in the sense of its construct material.
The Trooper is $20 AUD more then Phantom, and would like to know what people prefer, I have no intention of water cooling..
(Please don't recommend the HAF case, I cannot stand the sight of it )
The phantom build quality is good, some is made by plastic but it is still well build, i own one, no problems with that, and i still didnt see the trooper in flesh, but then i would still take the phantom any day
Reason I am for the Phantom, Is the fact, It has Built-in Fan Controller, Tool-less Designed, Cover to hide Drivers,and I feel the Phantom has a more appropriate fan layout design, for air cooling anyway (maybe wrong, probably am lol)
Only reason for the Trooper, Is of course that look, even that it is quite large, and probably the top specifically (Button layout is quite nice) - And it looks very solid
But even though the Phantom support 2x 200mm top, it looks as if the second one is half covered by the plastic material (whatever it is ) - and perhaps block some airflow, and I guess it looks the same for the front fan, if someone can let me know about that, be very helpful
Also, how good are the NZXT stock fans, are they decent, I suspect there loud, I just dont want to waste more doe on replacing them all...
