[NZXT] NZXT Phantom, Evolved (Updated with reviews) - Page 9

That means you can pack an SSD system drive and maybe a 750GB Momentus XT 2.5 inch drive back there and you’ve got a substantial weight reduction for your next LAN party rig when compared to running 3.5 inch drives.
The cable management of the case has also been refined as well and if the Switch 810 is any indication, we may see some tweaks to make it even more water cooling friendly. Consider our appetites whetted!"

that's pretty much what I care about the most, finding a place for those rads in the current Phantom is a bit of a pain (could be worse though)

The first paragraph was about the 410, only mentioning the new color combinations. The second paragraph is about the next gen full size Phantom. Apparently they were not allowed to show anything.

Tech Report was also at Computex and have similar information.

"Despite lacking pictures of the new Phantom, we can tell you what's changed. The hard drive cages are now removable, allowing longer graphics cards to be tucked inside the chassis. Don't worry about losing hard drive bays; the back side of the motherboard tray has mounting holes for SSDs, a feature we saw on a number of cases at the show. There's more room behind the tray for cabling, too, and NZXT has added an SD reader to the front of the case."

The original was my first case. Loved it, but it didn't have enough room for what I have now. redface.gif

Thank you for making the Phantom 810 tongue.gif

but the truth is that i think you are very (too) close to the final product. i guess the design would be a bit different than the phantom, possibly more elegant towards the 810, and maybe they''l surprise us with 480 at roof or 360 at bottom. (or maybe a space for the Phobya 400 Xtreme rad hopefully) biggrin.gif
