But then it would be ugly and lack many of the features, making it even more overpriced.

Hey Retell, in one of the gallery pics with the blue watercooling setup, it looks like the pump is mounted directly to the side of the case. I remember you saying something when the 810 was released about a pump mount, but it never surfaced. Is that still a go now that there are 2 cases that could use it?

That sort of got scrapped. I was supposed to get a delivery of like 50 or so but it never went through. With the P820 coming out I'll try to push again see if I can make something happen. Maybe we can bundle with the Switch side window guitar.gif

Also about the watercooling options... Technically it's offerings aren't worse, just different. While the P820 doesn't support a 420 on top (still fits a 360) it supports 280 on the bottom, something the Switch didn't.

Look closely to the Switch 810.

Don't mean to sound mean, but I think you're missing the point, the switch 810 is a box whereas the phantom is more of a crafted case. The extra price premium is for the looks and the hue.

I did a build for a friend in an 810, its a great case but IMO its plain looking. Atleast the 820 spices up the look and keeps the same features and that is why i would pick it over the 810. I feel like going out and buying another classic phantom and keeping it in my garage for a few years for a future build :3
