    NZXT has taken the 820 and shrunk it, removing some non-vital features in the process: the case clocks in at 50 US Dollars less while still being quite massive, with the same futuristic look and extremely well-engineered interior. We take the 200 US Dollar case for a spin to see if we end up eyeing its bigger brother at all.

    a great case, for those who don't want to buy the larger sibling Phantom 820.

    I really like the inclusion of 2.5in mounting behind the motherboard tray. Both my ssd and hdd are back there but not secured by anything more than pressure.

    So they provide fans for all slots except one single 200mm at the top? Was it just too much to ask to give us the last damn fan so the whole case has some kind of uniform look?
    I prefer my drive bays in my current Phantom Full Enthusiast, dont know why they changed the drive system.

    Too expensive imo. Looks pretty good otherwise, but I'm not really a fan of openings on the sides. No, not even fan mounts, but I just have to live with that I guess.

    not a worthy $200 case... but I really like a lot of features, the SSD mounts and the extra space behind the mainboard is really nice.
    Never liked the "style" of these cases either, I don't like the front panel.
