So I'm going to get the NZXT Phantom and Asus P8Z68 gen3 motherboard... the phantom has esata, USB3/2 ports and audio ports built in.. but what do I connect them to the motherboard with?

No, its coming with the case.
Front panel connections are the standard power/reset switch, power/HD LEDs, one USB, eSATA and front audio connections (HD and AC'97).
On the left is the eSATA...

Use the Manual, and look for the onboard connectors for the respective sockets.
The wires coming from the case will fit onto the mobo and you'll have active FP audio, USB3/2 ports and eSATA.

Thanks! I did check manual for phantom but it is not very good.
Does the esata go into a sata port? I can't imagine needing an esata anything at this point though.

What is meant by HD and AC97?

HD is High Definition Audio and AC97 is the Audio Chip that is used on the board.
You need to go through the Asus Manual and not the Phantoms manual.

If you download the manual for that Board, you'll see the Diagram on the 20th page
