I'm looking at water cooling now since I'll be able to afford it. I'm a huge Koolance fan! I'll look to them for my future rads.

I'm thinking maybe a clear acrylic full length PSU cover! Where can I get one of those custom made for my future 820?

I have one and also the Phantom's and a Switch. And yeah the 820 is very nice. I heard many say it was like the Switch 810 inside but its not really at all besides the door panel fits from the switch. Hard drive Cages Spacing or things inside and everything is different. I really love the case besides a few little things that i suppose all cases have little things that bug us. For instance day 1 the tiny clip that holds the bottom screen in broke so be very careful of that its super thin and fragile. Even broke the screen works fine just don't pop open. I really cant think of to many cons on the case but i got it to Mod it and thats has proven to be a task as i like it the way it is and its hard to really Mod it. I never really ran into this before.

So all in all its a pretty sweet case in my opinion and for non Modders a really great deal at the 250 price tag as lighting is done for you,Window is done,Fan controller is done.

These are just my opinions and thoughts on the case and i seen allot of NZXT cases and id say the 820 was def a winner.


Also huge Grats on the Win Mate!

Take Care guys,

I'm pretty clueless if anyone is doing custom acrylic,

I do my own mods and fabs, so I never really went looking.

For metal fab, there's none better than Dwood, here on OCN.

This is the translucent red acrylic PSU cover I made for my Switch 810 build.

Acrylic isn't all that hard to work with, and it's not all that expensive to get enough for some practice runs

Definitely like that look Darlene! I'm going to go look for some and get ready to mod my case once it arrives to me. I'm thinking next week sometime. Tuan at NZXT has been out of the office due to the holiday weekend. I'm sure he'll get back to me come Monday with hopefully the tracking information!

Thanks for the information to! smile.gif
