    Default The NZXT Phantom 820 Enthusiast Full Tower Chassis

    As a kid I loved reading comics, especially the ones about super heroes. One of my favorites is the Phantom, an American adventure comic strip created by Lee Falk, also creator of Mandrake the Magician. This is a popular feature adapted to several forms of media, including television, film and video games. It stars a costumed crime fighter operating from the fictional African country Bangla. The Phantom is the 21st in a line of crime fighters that originated in 1536, when the father of British sailor Christopher Walker was killed during a pirate attack. Swearing an oath to fight evil on the skull of his father's murderer, Christopher started the legacy of the Phantom that would be passed from father to son. Believing him to be immortal due to this legacy, his enemies gave the mysterious figure nicknames such as "The Ghost Who Walks", "The Man Who Cannot Die" and "Guardian of the Eastern Dark." Unlike many fictional costumed heroes, the Phantom does not have any supernatural powers, but instead relies on his strength, intelligence, and fearsome reputation for being an immortal ghost to defeat his foes.Today we have the pleasure of reading about another Phantom; only this legacy and legend was conceived and created by our friends at NZXT. The Phantom is reborn again only this time as The Phantom 820, an enthusiast steel full tower chassis, engineered to chill even the most demanding systems. The Phantom 820 is equipped with 200 mm and 140 mm fans in strategic positions for unrivaled airflow throughout the chassis. It is designed for the hard core enthusiast or gamer, who wants or needs the very best. The Phantom 820 comes equipped to install a liquid cooling system for unmatched cooling performance of your high end system. It features a push-pull configuration with room for a top 280/360 mm radiator and bottom 240/280 mm radiator with up to 60 mm thickness.

    Thanks guys this case is a step above the Switch 810 for reasons described in my review and now a new favorite of mine
    I love what NZXT is doing, They have an amazing team that listens to what people like us say.
    and are always on the forefront, with new and exciting changes based on what we say and changes we would like to see.
    I personally love doing case reviews for manufactures like NZXT for that reason alone they are always thinking outside the box.

    I am getting accustomed to the window and it shows enough to make you want to bend over and take a closer at whats inside
    and when lit up a night the inside shows really well through both the window and the mesh area.
    let me see if I can get some decent night shots with the lights on inside so you can see what I mean
    the only thing really missing from view is the HDD cages.

    the only thing really missing from view is the HDD cages.

    cool but i dont need to see the hdd cages the motherboard area is all i need to see lol. the window is nice and doesnt interfere with the fan under it which is nice. i think i just spoiled by big windows now.
    You don't know me and that's the way i like it!
