NZXT Phantom 530 White ATX Full Tower Case

Jake K., Newegg
10 April 2015
  • Pros: Love this case. Plenty of room for upgrades. Supports Kraken liquid cooling radiator. i/o LEDs are a nice signature of NZXT Phantom cases. Perfect for just about any beast build. Extremely quick shipping.
  • Cons: The reason I am taking away one egg is that, while the case was shipped to me exceedingly quick, upon arrival to my house the box was clearly damaged and repaired with tape. Sure enough when the case was removed from the box there is a nasty ding on the back of the right side panel. I do not have...

Wonderful Case

Marc L., Newegg
1 February 2015
  • Summary: Had to name it Maximillion due to the intense red paint and the addition of a 200mm red led fan. (the blackhole).
  • Pros: Deep Red (pictures are deceiving) This case has lots of room for cooling, MB, Video cards etc. the space behind the motherboard mount is very nice for cable management. Large 200mm intake fan in the front.
  • Cons: Not enough pre installed fans for the price. Should have added LED fans instead of plain. Liquid cooling had to be installed with fans on top as there wasn't enough room for my H110 radiator to be installed in a push pull configuration.-1egg

All about that case

Anthony E., Newegg
4 January 2015
  • Summary: i do not l;ike how there is not dust filter on the top. i could always change air flow to push out but when it is off dust settles downwards on the open part.
  • Pros: Large Fresh alot of room for cables and fans. Case fans that come with it are really nice not some trash throw in fans. O/I light is so nice! you have no idea how nice that is untill you have one.
  • Cons: not much, mounting a fan to the case wall makes it hard to take the door off without popping out the plug.

Great Looking Case

Khadija C., Newegg
13 December 2014
  • Summary: This is my first time assembling a PC with the sort of hardware that it has as it was originally a gift and I played little to no part in its original setup. Mounting my mobo and connecting all other hardware was the easy part, the part that I needed (and thankfully got) help on was connecting the...
  • Pros: Looks great, doesn't scratch as easily as people say, easy to disassemble and reassemble, sleek finish, overall nice shape and setup.
  • Cons: My motherboard is a bit too large, it hangs over the rubber doors for cable management to and from the back of the motherboard making it rather difficult to connect my HDD's and CD drives. The power button also pops from its location rather easily when turning on the PC, thankfully I have a start...

Good Case

Jason B., Newegg
14 October 2014
  • Summary: the color thing was only a minor inconvenience as I plan to do a custom paint job on this case and only needed the red for a base color
  • Pros: I bought this case because it had everything I was looking for in a case
  • Cons: I'm not sure how their quality control operates but like several other people had mentioned, The Red of the plastic does not match the paint they used on the rest of the case. plastic top and front is a dark red, case is a little bit brighter red in color Also my Side panel is warped. While in th...

Beautiful Case

Garry R., Newegg
6 October 2014
  • Summary: I would give it 5 eggs if the front was perfectly tight but since it's not perfect, it doesn't get a perfect review but the closest thing to it.
  • Pros: The case is very sharp looking. High gloss finish is breath taking. NZXT Has really gone above and beyond on this case, this is my first NZXT product and I will be buying more of there products in the time to come.
  • Cons: The Faceplate on the case on the hinge side doesn't fit as tight to the side of the case as I would like it to be. I can see the rivet that holds it in place by a 16th of an inch. Small deal to a joe, big deal to an enthusiast.

User Review

Craig R., Newegg
4 September 2014
  • Summary: After purchasing this I started getting buyer's remorse. I starting thinking I should have purchased a smaller case. Once I received it and opened up the box that remorse evaporated. I've always had heat issues with my previous cases and my current set up has great airflow.
  • Pros: Plenty of fan slots, lots of customization, sleek look
  • Cons: Size (full tower), removing top panel requires more force than I feel comfortable applying.

Not quite enthusiastic

Richard G., Newegg
22 August 2014
  • Pros: Very nice case, solid build and lots of extra screws and parts to make a build east. Great instruction manual.
  • Cons: This case doesn't compare to the NZXT Enthusiast case which I also own. The buttons feel cheaper and the fan control is way too basic.for the same price. I have to remove 1 egg and recommend getting the Enthusiast instead.

NZXT phantom 530

Joseph C., Newegg
10 August 2014
  • Summary: be careful as to what fans you use if you're using 200mm fans, most won't fit. They only really have a mounting pattern for their own fans, which is what i bought after buying this. And just be careful when you move this case around because it scratches easily, so i removed an egg for that.
  • Pros: - Full sized case with lots of room - Tons of cable management holes and routing options - A really nice fan controller that supports up to 30ws for a single channel - You can use big fans for a more silent operation while still getting really good airflow - The plastic and the metal uses a prett...
  • Cons: Plastic! Because of this it has a glossy black finish which i wouldn't have a problem with, but on plastic the glossy finish scratches easy and on metal the glossy finish comes off easily. Screwing in one screw removes all the paint where the head of the screw hits the metal Fan on the window sid...
