4 out of 5 eggsVery tall, much room!

This review is from: NZXT Phantom 820 Series CA-PH820-M1 Matte Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Seems to be almost the same width and depth as the original NZXT Phantom, which I upgraded from. This however, is much taller.
Better quality rubber on the cable routing grommets than the original Phantom, and more spaces for routing cables.
LED lighting is great, and TONS of extra connections for the fan controller so you don't need to buy a bunch of 2:1 adapters like I did.
There's a sleeved 8 pin power extension cable for the motherboard, so you can forget an extra cable to plug in when you set up your system!

Cons: Very, very tightly constructed. The side panels are very snug to get off and have to be pushed in more considerably.
After reading the manual, I took off the front panel for the FIRST TIME and a plastic connector broke. The same thing happened to the top. Unlike my original Phantom, this thing doesn't seem to want to to come apart
You have to take off the front to take off the top of the case, because of 5 little connectors that weren't present on the original Phantom.

Other Thoughts: I got this for a Christmas gift about a month early - my girlfriend didn't know that it ships in the retail packaging. I sat and waited a month before getting to open it, and then another month before I had the time to transfer my system. I added an additional 200MM fan to the top, and another 140mm to the bottom and pivot point. The airflow is amazing, and considering the size of the fans.. VERY quiet. Hell, knocking the fans down 1 click through the controller and I can't even hear the thing.

I took off 1 egg because of how tight the fittings were. I snapped off 2 connectors, and I'm worried about taking the case apart again. It's very, very, very tight and I'm afraid I'll break more and won't be able to close it up properly.

In terms of performance, airflow, space, convenience and toys.. this case is top notch. I just wish it was a bit easier to work with!

1 out of 5 eggsa curse of noise with poor RMA support

This review is from: NZXT Phantom 820 Series CA-PH820-M1 Matte Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: It's a case.

Cons: Noisy case. RMA folks will not send replacement non-noisy parts - they will only re-send the exact same parts. You won't find out until you receive them that it isn't actually a fix. Ludicrous.

NOISIEST CASE EVER, AND NO FIX. This case is a curse.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, Valued NZXT Customer

We greatly appreciate the feedback on our 820 ultra case , but the case itself is not meant to be a silent case like the source 340 or h440. With larger fans you will have noise ambience, coil whine or grinding from the fans is a defect which can be changed out by replacements. A larger case with bigger fans will give that RPM hymn which can not be avoided. If you require any assistance or need further questions answered please feel free to contact us at +1-800-228-9395.
Kind regards,
NZXT Support.

5 out of 5 eggsWell built case with plenty of space

This review is from: NZXT Phantom 820 Series CA-PH820-M1 Matte Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: All metal case construction
Plenty of room for anything you want to fit in this case.
Can remove all panels and get at any area on this case.
HUGE
Accessory tray with individual compartments for screws is a nice touch

Cons: Its not worth knocking an egg off for but the hard drive trays look like they are easy to break. Just be careful with them and you should be fine.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you note the size of the case and plan ahead on where you will put this case.

4 out of 5 eggsOverall a nice case.

This review is from: NZXT Phantom 820 Series CA-PH820-M1 Matte Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: - Huge. Absolutely huge. There is enough room in this case to fit basically anything you can image.
- I have an x99 MSI board and a Nvidia GTX 970 which is still 6 inches away from reaching the HDD bays.
- There are 3x200mm fans which at least in my case, really quiet. When idling, you barely know the fans are running.
- Construction of the case is pretty solid. Everything snaps in pretty well, although in some cases where the top and front (which are plastic) snaps to the rest of the case (which is steel), light from the LED's does shine through the joints.
- The fan control and other I/O headers are easily connected. NZXT did a good job keeping installation of front I/O simple.
- Overall design and aesthetics of the case is awesome in my own opinion.

Cons: - The box itself said the case was Gunmetal, which through me off since I ordered the Matte Black finish. Upon unboxing, it did appear to be black. Nothing too serious, but just mentioned as a precaution.
- ( -1 egg ) There is a smudge on the front of the door on the case. It was on the case as it was unboxed. The way I have the machine facing hides the smudge, but still kind of bothersome if you see it.
- As mentioned in the pros, in between some of the joints the LED's shine through. Doesn't bother me but may bother some others.
- As others mentioned, the Matte Black finish isn't the best and is easily scratched. The screws holding the side panels does almost automatically scratch the finish off, though it ends up hiding it either way.
- I purchased a Corsair H110 sealed cooler for my i7. It was a very tight fit up in the top of the case. The fan spacing in the top is not exact, however, with a little help from someone else, I did get all 8 screws in.

Other Thoughts: - For the price tag of around $200+, I would expect the case to be in pristine condition, which mine was not. However, everything else I have observed about the case has been awesome. I truly have no complaints about the case other than the fact that it was received with a smudge on the front door. I would recommend it to anyone building a high-end system. I have always been fairly pleased with NZXT in the past, and this isn't any different.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case!

This review is from: NZXT Phantom 820 Series CA-PH820-M1 Matte Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Excellent case for my new 5820K build. Like others have said there is plenty of room in this case for whatever build you plan to do. The lighting effect on the case is great. The fans run super quiet, if fact I wouldn't know if it was running if not for the lighting effects.

Cons: Had three USB 2.0 connectors but unfortunately my board had only two separate pin connectors.

Other Thoughts: My Build:
Core i7 - 5820K
Cryorig H5 heat sink/fan
Samsung 840 EVO SSD - 500 GB
Asus x99 Deluxe MB
Crucial Ballistic DDR4 - 16GB
Asus GTX 760 - two in SLI
Antec HCP-850 PSU

5 out of 5 eggsWhat A Beauty

This review is from: NZXT Phantom 820 Series CA-PH820-M1 Matte Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: There is tons of space in this thing. It makes my standard ATX look like a micro ATX. I the extra cable routing is really nice as well. By far the cleanest cable routing I have ever had in a case. Plus I have more room to add more hardware. The lighting is really nice since I'm not the only person that uses it. I like red or green and she likes blue. Having so many usbs are really nice as well.

Cons: Mone that I have found yet.
