Phanteks was back at CES 2023 with an amazing new case (NV7), as well as a new fan with the goal of cleaning up cable clutter.
Keeping with the new trend of “fish tank” style cases, Phanteks has announced the NV7, a new tower case with an unobstructed view of the hardware inside the case with its unique outer frame. This view is made possible by removing any case frame material from the front left corner- leaving just the front and side glass panels to provide the case corner allowing your hardware components to be shown in their full glory!
With multiple fan mounting options on the bottom, side, and top, as well as dual 120mm fan support on the back of the case, there is plenty of cooling capacity in this case. You are also going to an ultra-fine performance mesh design, which for those who don’t know is Phanteks’ high-quality dust filter for great dust filtration. Surrounding the motherboard tray area are two panels with ARGB lighting bars that can be adjusted to fit around your chosen components.
An included dual-zone RGB controller allows you to have multiple lighting effects going at once. The back of the case is quite bare, thanks to a hinged door that conceals all of your system’s component connections on the motherboard and GPU, making for a very clean design. There are a vast array of cable management tools on the back of the case.
Available towards the end of February, the NV7 will be available in both black and white color schemes to give you that picture-perfect build for $219.
Based on their existing T30 fans, the new D30-120 fans feature a clip and lock system that allows up to four fans to be daisy chained in a single grouping, and with a single cable for connectivity. With D-RGB lighting, these 30mm thick fans will be available in black and white models, and will also be available in standard and reverse blade configurations.
These fans will be available in a single pack for $29.99, and a triple pack for $85. Included with the fans are the connecting clips and dummy clips for each side of the fan, as well as screw cover panels, which really clean up the installed look of the fans.
Shift XT High-Res Display
We’ve seen mods of the Shift XT case that feature a small LCD in place of the infinity-style mirror up front, but now Phanteks has created an official display to make installation an easier task.
At 5″ diagonal, the IPS display has a 2560 x 1440 resolution, which should provide plenty of pixel density to use it as a high-resolution custom display to show your cat memes, or system statistics to all onlookers.
This screen will be available in April for $129.99.
