Right, as promised a photo of the chassis rear side with the panel removed.You can see how intensely hard it is to photograph in a white studio with a white chassis. Apologies for that.
Cable management won't be a problem. There are just so many grommet holes. You have roughly 2 to 3cm of space in-between the panel and motherboard tray.
BTW I am a total sucker for detail, look at the 8-pin CPU extension cable already positioned for you, I just love it. So when you have a PSU with a short(er) cable, you can still reach the motherboard.
So here are a couple of reference photos to show you what the unit looks like when installed. I say reference here as our studio photos had a memory stick issue + the all white studio made some of the photos 'suck'. Just look at that stylish design.
You have to admit that the style is just uncanny, in a good way. The simplicity of the LED usage also works out really well for this chassis design, in fact let's power it up:
Top side angle. Again, stunning to look at. And with the help of the fan controller you can create as much airflow as needed with noise levels you find acceptable. The fans overall are not at all very noisy by the way.
NZXT integrated Hue lighting control system into the case, allowing you to customize the lighting colors within your case. So that means this is an RGB system that allows you to configure any color you desire or wish. That's great stuff as you can now match the color schema of say your motherboard brand.
This LED lighting system is a very nice idea and if you dislike it, you can disable it entirely if you prefer that.
Behind the door you can turn a dial inside the front door to change the color to whatever you like, and you can toggle between enabling and disabling different lighting zones on the case. Compare the image on top and below showing that.
And there you have it, the new Flagship SKU from NZXT, the Phantom 820 big tower chassis.
We review the NZXT Phantom 630 Full tower PC chassis. Definitely gorgeous in many ways as the design is prolonging in what we have seen in the past year or two when NZXT released their first phantom chassis.

We test and review the NZXT Phantom 820. Absolutely stunning in many ways as the design is simply great, the features are grand and then the extras still need to kick in. What about a fan controller connected to a plethora of pre-equipped fans
NZXT Phantom review
We review the NZXT Phantom. Absolutely stunning in many ways as the design is simply great, the features are grand and then the extras still need to kick in. What about a 5-fold fan controller connected to a plethora of pre-equipped fans? Yep, a fan controller in the chassis, something we have been requesting for years. The NZXT Phantom is a full tower case with an excess of room for just about anything you'd like to install in there.
