Is the paint more scratch resistant than the previous phantom? (for example the side-panal thumb screws)

no paint coming off or scratching on mine. and i've traveled with it a few times. my only issue is in form & fit. the front panel piece does NOT want to go on or come off easily at all. there is a bad alignment issue. to the point that if you do manage to get it back on... you almost snap it in half trying to get it off. other than that this case has a lot of possibilities and good airflow.

Hello fellas i just setup my computer including the Phantom 820 all working fine expect from Leds.

In the manual it says ELECTRONICS CONNECTION (This connector provides power for the included fan control, led hue control, and the internal IO LED). I gave power to this connector and the fan controller works find but no one from the led will light up.

I'm missing something here? any help would be appreciate.

there is 2 power plugs for the led lighting and fan controller
one is a molex powers the fan controller
the other is a sata power plug powers the led lighting

I'm glad you are getting comfortable with your 820 after the problems you had earlier. The more I work with this case, the better I like it; it is so easy to keep the interior cables orderly with all the space behind the right panel, and I continue to appreciate the way it looks.

Are you moving the chassis around a lot? Was it damaged during shipping? Please elaborate.
