Let’s take a look at the latest version of NZXT’s Phantom case, the Phantom 820, a full-tower model featuring nine expansion slots, a four-channel fan controller, and an advanced lighting system.
The reviewed case is available in three color options: black, white or gunmetal gray. We reviewed the gray model.
The very first thing we noticed with the new Phantom 820 was that its overall construction quality is vastly superior to the original Phantom.
The left panel of the NZXT Phantom 820 has a small window and two meshes, coming with a huge 200 mm fan attached to the biggest mesh. This fan has an air filter, a maximum speed of 800 rpm, uses a three-pin standard fan connector, and it can be connected to the case’s fan controller. The original Phantom supports a 200 mm fan on its left panel, but doesn’t come with this fan. Instead, it comes with two 120 mm fans.
