I am now back with another build to work with.
This worklog is originally from TheModZoo but i wanted to share it with you guys aswell for opinions.
My previous build was a Phantom 410 by NZXT
It was a fun build wich also was very appreciated by alot of you. Wich lead into the oppurtunity of this Phantom 820 mod.
At this time i i've been building in NZXT cases because i really dig their futuristic look with lots of
internal space to work with. NZXT is also very good with listening to their customers reviews & opinions
and i believe that they really try to do their best satisfying all their customers, no matter what sort of components they intend to
put in their cases.*
That is why the NZXT cases are created compatible with lots of different radiator options etc.
I would love to give you some rendered pictures of what my goals is with this project
but every time i've tried making something in photoshop it ends up looking like a cartoon bisquit.
So you're just going to have to check back every now and then to watch the progress here.
Anyway i am thinking of giving this case a red interior to match with a grey paint i will be applying to the outside of the case.*
Why is this project called The Big Beast?
If you check back every now and then you will see why.
All of the work you'll see here on these following pages will be made at my house without any 2000$ tools.
I Believe That Minor Changes can have a BIG impact if done right
Hope you have a great time beeing a part of my progress with this project.

This just arrived from NZXT Corp California. They had a local reseller send it to me though.
Bigger in person than i thought it would be.
They even attached a box to organize all the case screws for the case. Cred to NZXT (Y)
I really missed this when i got the older Phantom 410 case.
Rear side. Sorry you have to tilt your head*
Lets dig in fellow monkeys!
As you can see, this case will give me plenty of room to work with. Whatever i intend to do with this case.
200mm fan in the side
200mm fan in the front
200mm fan in top.

These are the fans they included as stock fans.
You can put way more fans in there though
