NZXT Phantom 530

techPowerUp!
9 October 2013
  • Summary: To some, it may seem like NZXT has been milking the whole Phantom design for far too long, but why change a design that works? Their move to offer the Phantom 410, a smaller version of the original Phantom, has ultimately shown that the demand for such a chassis exists. Now, with the new Phantom 530, NZXT is taking the plunge and updating their mid-tower case with the new design we have come to know and love through the Phantom 630 and 820.
  • Pros: Modernized looks with Phantom genes, Excellent liquid-cooling support, Excellent ODD installation method, Three separate hard drive cages, PCB to connect up to 10 fans, Single 2.5" try on motherboard tray, Loads of space for long GPUs, PSU, and CPU cooler, One 200 mm and a single 140 mm fan right out of the box, Plenty of screws and zip ties included, Extremely good paint job, Each color variant with matching interior paint job, Dust filter for PSU and the front of th...
  • Cons: Flimsy hard drive trays, Fan PCB for 10 fans means you have to watch the overall power draw for high-end applications, No dust filter on the side panel, No 3.5" drive bay, Only two 5.25" bays, Basic I/O, Taking out a hard drive requires removing the side panel behind the motherboard tray

  • Excerpt: NZXT has been in the chassis game for some time already, and while not all of their older designs were all on point, at least not as much as I would have liked, along the way they have come up with some great ideas. NZXT is also a company that realizes what else is out on the market, and has had a recent track record of being able to out play and out design most of their competition.

  • Summary: La serie Phantom è stata da sempre apprezzata da molti per il suo design particolare, in grado di colpire l'immaginazione di un'utenza gaming e non solo. La qualità offerta dal nuovo Phantom 530 risulta davvero eccellente e alcune delle soluzioni utilizzate per ospitare al meglio un sistema di fascia alta sono difficilmente riscontrabili sui prodotti direttamente concorrenti.
