I'm not saying that the Phantom is junk or anything, it's just personal taste.
For me, right now, I like "clean looking", well built, awesome features for water cooling, well thought out cable management, access to only needed ports (USB and headset), LOTS OF ROOM, and right now, something other than "boring black".
Personally, I would love nothing better than to see NZXT come up with a Switch 820, which basically took a Switch 810, make it 6" taller, and put in cut outs for 2 480/420 radiators/fans down below. I'm sure the boys over at Corsair would say they were just ripping off the 900D, but then again, that wouldn't be the case (no pun intended), it would be more akin to just making into one product what I already have in my house (and many others do too) ... a Switch 810 case with a Dwood Switch pedestal. But that is a discussion for another thread.
i think that because of you and people with similar taste the 810 was made. Simple, efficient, elegant and not too expensive. and for the ones that want a different, phantom, style they have a wide range of choices. personally, i like the phantom style, but also the 810 style and the Corsair C70 (which i currently own) style.
regarding to the pedestal, with one of these bad boys i can reach the same level of 810-ness water cooling capabilities with my C70 while keeping it's own style. (still planning my mod

Nearly everyone who bought the old Phantom modded the side panel and put in their own cool looking windows, and from what I can see that will be pretty easy with this case. The side panel can always be modded, I mean jeez. And knowing NZXT, just like the OG Phantom, they'll likely release a full window side panel, or the S810 side panel will fit on this Phantom. They're both full towers, so it isn't out of the question.
pretty much gold there. don't like it? no other case like it? Mod it ! also, it looks like the side mesh part can be easily removes without any complex mods (just a screwdriver and a window) though i might be wrong.

if you are already replying here, may i ask what is the consideration of making a meshed or full window side panel on a case? why the 810 had full window while the 820 and the new 630 have window and mesh? (would there be a separate full window?)
btw, how long till NZXT would make pedestals
