NZXT to produce pink Phantom case

NZXT to produce pink Phantom case

The pink Phantom started life as an April fools joke.

Case manufacturer NZXT is planning to produce a limited edition pink run of its popular Phantom case later this year.

The move was prompted by the overwhelmingly positive feedback the company had from its April fools press release, which stated that the company was going to start manufacturing a range of pink cases, PSUs and fans.

The run will be strictly limited, and only a handful of the cases are likely to make it here to the UK, so you’ll have to be quick if you decide you fancy a quirkily coloured case.

The company was also showing off a pink PSU with the pink case, although we were quickly told that there were no plans to put this into production in the same way as the Phantom.

Do you fancy a pink case? Is NZXT making a smart move by producing its cases in more than the normal set of colours? Let us know your thoughts in the forums.

Ah, I see Jordan's new computer has arrived. The case may be all pink and garish on the outside, but in fact it's just an empty shell begging for someone to stuff some hardware inside it...

:-)

It aint my cup of tea that's for sure. Does make a change from all the black cases though I suppose.

Wow, I can't decide whether I hate it or like it in the way a parent cares for their broken child.
If there was ever a paint job that inspires you to mod your case to make it better, this would be it!

When you turn it on, does some Snoop Dogg get played as your startup sound automatically?

Now if they do one of these in lime green, I might just need to throw my wallet at them.

Why won't they release a phantom with a proper side window? Cutting mine was a pain in the arse:

Proper water-cooling compatibility would be nice as well :)

Add a little leopard or zebra print fabric to that and you've got the perfect pimp case!

Wow, this totally fits in the "it's-so-bad-it's-good" category...

That is a sexy case in a sexy color.

to be honest I really do like this, now I wouldnt buy it for myself but maybe for my girlfriend but it really does look good.
The_Beast 2nd June 2011, 23:28 Quote
I kinda like it, I would pay money for it but I'd accept it as a gift *wink wink


A lime green case would be something I'd buy :)

I guess women technerds need their own color.

I imagine that the people who buy this will be the same people who buy pink Nissan Micra convertables.
So that's a potentilal market of what?....... About a dozen people in the UK?

Seriously though, it's the most hideous case I've ever seen. And I'm old enough to remember the way cases looked in the mid 90's.

I kind of like it. It would look better with a black interior, though. I've been asking for something other than a solid black monolith and this certainly fills the bill, so why not?

And where do you put it guys?
Right next to your white or pink couch?

A pink bike, cool!
A Pink car, meh, that's a lot of pink.
A pink computer? No thinks, it's going to stick out like a sore thumb pretty much no matter where you put it.

If I saw that in your house, I wouldn't wonder about your sexuality, but I would certainly wonder about your taste and style.


On the other hand, paint the outside a neutral color and leave the inside (which looks good) pink and you can make it work quite well. I'm not big on the outside looks on this at all. It's simply too much pink to try and blend into a room unless you have something else in there that's pink to tone it down.

If you saw my room you'd have no doubt I was an alpha male. Species wise, you'd probably think more like "pack rat!"
