3 out of 5 eggsfew things to add

This review is from: NZXT Phantom 820 Series CA-PH820-G1 Gunmetal Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: high end case but with a few issues..

Cons: - why on earth does this case and alot of other cases have 4 dvd/ 5.25 drive bays? save the space and add more harddrive cages! these 5.25 bays get in the way !. i dont need more then 1 or 2 of them. maximum should be 3 of these....

- make the front dust filter and top dust filter easy to remove... you literally have to rip of the panels to get to them.

- the bottom dust filter at the front is very cheap very hard to put back in once removed...

- and the fans in this case royally suck they barley move air.

other then these issues awesome case a legendary case to have

Other Thoughts: fx 8350 still holds up for every possible use for the pc

3 out of 5 eggsGood but not Great

This review is from: NZXT Phantom 820 Series CA-PH820-G1 Gunmetal Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: -Has lots of room and nice cable management.
-The LED's are a nice touch, the kids love to play with them.
-The filters haven't had a chance to get dirty yet, but they look like they will come in handy.
-A couple different options for Radiator support
-Has a nice sleek profile, so it looks nice

Cons: -The hard drive trays are cheap plastic, if you are mounting a SSD it really get flimsy since you don't have the sides of the hard drive supporting the plastic.
- The top is more cheap plastic. Some of the plastic studs/latches attaching it were already broken off when I received it.
- More plastic on the front of the case
- I wasn't that impressed with the fan controller, so plugged into motherboard instead

Other Thoughts: For over $200 I expected better construction. Overall it wasn't a bad case to build in, but it could have been better.

5 out of 5 eggsNZXT did a great job designing this case!

This review is from: NZXT Phantom 820 Series CA-PH820-G1 Gunmetal Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Case is huge! cable management isn't bad. The led lighting is nice and bright. Lights for the I/O was a great idea and very handy when plugging in new usb or other cables after its up and running. My rig runs very cool in this case and I just upgraded to the Noctua NH-D14 cpu cooler and there's still plenty of room! (If you are familiar with this cooler you know what i'm talking about) My I7 Ivy now runs idle at 32 Celsius. The internal adjustable fan is perfect for aiming at your gpu's or even cpu. I've got an sli config that this fan does help to cool.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: The only thing I would change is to have the option for caster wheels underneath. This case is heavy to start with and now with everything installed its like picking up a car battery. (It comes with an instruction manual?)

5 out of 5 eggsBest case ive ever owned!

This review is from: NZXT Phantom 820 Series CA-PH820-G1 Gunmetal Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: This case is perfect for anyone looking for style and functionality! Lots of space and high air flow and perfect for water cooling!! I've seen reviews about this case being cheap and the power button being to easy to press and in my opinion this case feels luxurious and nothing to me feels cheap and everything works just right! Couldn't be more saticfied than I am now!

Cons: None at all!! Its worth the price and if you don't like the partial window on the side panel the full window of the switch 810 mounts up and matches perfect!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case with lots of room for expansion

This review is from: NZXT Phantom 820 Series CA-PH820-G1 Gunmetal Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Bought this case from some retail store because i didnt have the patience to wait for it with the rest of my new computer its front and top panels arent as flimsy as other reviewers claim and for something you should only have to do once every two months they come off quite easily for the experienced user the dust filters do their job and for something you rarely ever have to touch i dont see how they would be to flimsy unless you like to bend stuff to see if it breaks rgb lighting has some trippy effects like making the rear fan look like its barely moving as well as illuminating your case inside and out fans are indeed quiet (alot more subtle than the gpu fan) case looks great its sleek and futuristic which is very appealing cable management is a breaze and everything is either labelled or odvious with average quality. includes a nice little screw kit with all the screws you would need to install anything you can cram in here

Cons: window could be bigger would prefer black fans instead of white but the lighting does look cool off the white and more dust covers wouldnt hurt because theres a couple zones near the back and sides where it would find its way in

3 out of 5 eggsa more indepth review

This review is from: NZXT Phantom 820 Series CA-PH820-G1 Gunmetal Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: ive had alot more time to go over everything with this case.

- the fans are in perfect locations for cooling.

- the extra fan mount supports a 120/140 fan infront of the -harddrive cages very nice touch to help cool your graphics card or ram.

- colour scheme, hue lighting, the window and how the black vents pop out 3d is a very nice touch

- i really like the easy access to the usb ports and how there on top of the case

- very easy to install large heatsinks like the nh d14
- good cable management
- the lighting is very nice orange i think looks best on this case

- front panel comes off nicely they have latches that open very well. the top panel does not ill get to that...

tooless harddrive cages are very nice but they seem to flimsey.

fan controllers is designed into the case very niceley

Cons: - needs more space for cable management at the back
- cheap feeling dust filters
- fan wires and the wires included with this case feel cheap
- door feels cheap and should open up about 180 degrees
- the bottom of the case should be all metal with alot of holes in it instead of being wide open... if you have a few cords not tucked behind the case they can get in the way of the bottom front dust filter from opening and closing properly
- top panel is very poorly designed when it comes to removing it. you litterally just have to pull and rip it off. no latches just plastic in the shape of a V to snap in place. very bad quality. they should have put more effort into the top panel coming off like they did the front panel. ull need to take off the top in order to remove or add fans clean the filter etc and everytime i remove it im afriad of breaking the clips. very bad quality huge dissapointment.

- harddrive caddies are very cheap feeling. the very bottom caddie does not sit in place and doesnt lock into place properly because of the angle the bottom harddrive cage is on and designed.

fans do not move alot of air. there should be better quality fans in this case.

Other Thoughts: personally id rate it 3.5 stars out of 5. so about 70% out of 100.

3 out of 5 eggsok case

This review is from: NZXT Phantom 820 Series CA-PH820-G1 Gunmetal Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: been using this case all day. i was expecting more. the fans are really weak that come with this case. they dont push alot of airflow thats dissapointing. i know they wanted quiet but id rather have a stronger fan and if its to loud turn it down with the fan controller. the front door that swings open to reveal your dvd,/BR drives is very cheap. its made of a very weak feeling plastic and it can break very easily if youre not careful. the bottom pedestal at the front of the case feels very cheap too. lift this case up from the rear so you dont break anything. ull need a 24 pin power extention too otherwise you cant route it behind the mobo. very nice looking case however alot of room to easily install your components installation is easy. the dust filters are very cheap they should be alot stronger they literally feel like popsicle sticks. and getting the side door back on is very hard. its a pain to line it up properly. i want to give this case a higher score but the quality isnt up to par.

Cons: read pros

Other Thoughts: i have an 8 core beast of a cpu fx 8350

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful and huge case!

This review is from: NZXT Phantom 820 Series CA-PH820-G1 Gunmetal Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: This case is awesome! Very huge and I love the cable routing spots to the side of the case. I have all my cables hidden to the non-window side of the case. So roomy and plenty of air flow. The fans are huge and so far so good that came with the case. Plenty of room for watercooling and extra fans. Tons of usb spots at the top. (had to order an addon usb board because my mainboard didn't have enough internal usb spots on the board). Awesome HUE lighting! YOu can select just about any color of the rainbow. Built in SD card reader works nice. I haven't really tried the fan speed selector on the case because I had a 3rd party one I am using but it seems it works nicely. Love the filters although careful putting your stuff together they are easy to pop out on you and bend while your moving the case around not realizing they popped out. No complaints what so ever about this case. They give you plenty of fan wiring and even an extension of your CPU power wire. Again it's HUGE, so if your going to be taking this places a lot, it might not be the case for you as it tends to be heavy with everything inside it. Harddrives are on the side where all the wires are (non-windowed side). I don't mind it like that as more of the wires are hidden. Also the light selector stays at the color you choose when it gets shut off. Got this onsale for like $180 free shipping. Just can't beat that!

Cons: Really can't say there is a con. Haven't had this case for too long, so I can't say if these case fans will last a long time. The only con I could say is that the fan filters do pop out too easy at times and can cause damage because of not noticing them out and moving the case around on them. If your extra careful though this should not be a problem.
Another con for some, may be that it's too big. If you have a lot of short wires that need to be plugged into the front bays then it probably isn't going to reach. Also the weight could be problematic and just size of where you need to put this case at in your house.

Other Thoughts: Got a good deal on newegg saving about 40 bucks on this case. I would definitely recommend it for anyone. 2 Foot case with plenty of options, color changing, wire hiding, air flowing and even water-cooling options. If you want space, beauty, air flow, and selective fan speed and lighting, built in, don't waste your time on any other case. This is the one!
