    For those interested, there are easter eggs on the site. Periodically the page will update with new parts of the chassis is revealed.

    If you don't mind me asking, which one would you prefer as a watercooling case, this one or the Switch 810?

    I personally prefer the switch 810. It'll be my next case probably. Although this phantom is beautiful

    Now I see why you didn't comment about the suggestion in the other thread (relating to a water cooling friendly variant of the Phantom).

    I like the touches, but that pricing point is a little extreme. There's always the upcoming holidays though... Dang computer envy...

    I like the elegant yet powerful look of my black 500r... /shrug These NZXT cases are for college kids and hipsters... I kid I kid, they do look cool... I still like my steel beauty better though.

    Not sure, as I haven't been able to build in the P820 yet. However, with the small refinements made in the P820, I think it'd be better for watercooling. That said, my Switch 810 accommodated my watercooling loop just fine.

    So, it's a matter of preference on Aesthetics and features at this point.

    This won't be the only Phantom coming out from NZXT. :)

    You missed the launch site. The Launch site didn't have a gallery, only hints and easter eggs, and some very precisely unveiled parts of the case.

    I like its looks but hate the price. I'd buy it if it were a $100 cheaper.
