Inside the NZXT Phantom 820 Full Tower Case
On the left side the wires from the pre-wired front panel come out the top and this is the side you access all the hard drives from. It is a little inconvenient to have to open both sides of your case to work on it and we wish you could access the drive bays from the right side but it is not a show stopper. NZXT was nice enough to include the ATX power extender in the top right to help get power to the top of the motherboard in this massive case.
A closer view of the HDD cages with the trays inside. Another minor complaint is that the trays are very flimsy and tend to fall out of the slots if there is no drive mounted in them. Of course once a HDD is inserted it is not a problem.
Here is one of the trays from the NZXT Phantom 820 Full Tower Case showing off the rubber grommets for a traditional drive and the center mount pattern for a SSD. This common feature allows you to mount six drives or six SSD's.
Behind the motherboard tray there is 20mm of clearance to run wires. This space and all the ports with grommets should make cable management a piece of cake.
NZXT included a nice hard plastic case filled with screws, zip ties, and even long radiator screws to mount your fans. The large rubber piece can be used to cover the USB ports on top of the case to keep the dust out and streamline the look if you do not plan on using them.
