We were expecting a box with graphically striking images, as is typical from NZXT, and we were not disappointed when the Phantom arrived.  The features and specifications are also displayed.  The case is carefully packed and held in place securely for shipping; you shouldn’t have any problems with the case surviving a trip to your doorstep.

The accessories package is well done, with a wide assortment of screws, standoffs, zip ties, brackets, and such and all done in a nice black finish; everything you need to fully install your system, other than a screwdriver.
