Had to document the box my computer case came in: "±The Phantom± 820 is engineered to chill even the most demanding systems, equipped with triple 200mm and a 140mm fans. Maximize the cooling potential by mounting up to nine fans to achieve unrivalled airflow in your chassis. ±Push± the envelope and utilize liquid cooling systems that feature a push-pull configuration with a top280/360mm and a bottom 240/280mm radiators up to 60mm thickness for unmatched performance. In addition, a rugged base design lifts the enclosure above ground for display and increased airflow. ±The Phantom± is reinvented again by following its legacy of remarkable asymmetrical and award winning design."
"Next generation Phantom carries the same bold, iconic, and futuristc design that is simply out of this world."
"Integrated HUE lighting for illuminating the exterior/interior of your enclosure with option to turn on/off and allow you to customize the colors at your heart’s content."
"Dual USB 3.0, quad USB 2.0, microphone, and audio jack along with a SD media card reader for high-speed data transfer and quick access to multimedia"
"Easily removable filters located in the top, front, side, and bottom to prevent dust from entering your rig and simple maintenance"
My case: By far the best I’ve ever owned, though it has a fatal flaw with harddrive noise in certain harddrive cages, and I wish the windows were bigger, and I wish the color-cycling could be automated. But still: This NZXT Phantom 820 Series case was $199.99 from NewEgg.

BACKSTORY: Building my new computer! We decided to name it Thailog. Thailog ("Goliath" spelled backwards) is the evil twin of Goliath from the cartoon Gargoyles±. ±Carolyn’s± computer is named after Goliath, so it just makes sense that ±Clint’s± computer is the evil twin of ±Carolyn’s± computer. A quick summary of the computer’s specs is: Intel Core i7-5820K Haswell-E 6-Core 3.3GHz with an Arctic Freezer I30 cooler on a ASRock X99 WS EATX motherboard with 24G of Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4 2400mHz RAM, a Radeon R9 270 video card, and a Crucial M500 240GB M.2 SSD…all inside a massive NZXT Phantom 820 case. It was a $1560 build, summarized on my blog at clintjcl.wordpress.com/2015/03/06/journal-hardware-purcha…
