On the other side likes a spacious area for cable management. I’m very pleased to see that NZXT had pre-cable managed the Phantom 530, I couldn’t have done it any better.
Here’s the 3.5″ cages viewed from the other side.
Now this part is beautiful – on the left is a hub for fan connection, of which the hub is linked to the switch at the top panel where the fan speed can be adjusted. On the right, a holder for 2.5″ storage.
Doesn’t it look lovely when an SSD is attached as such?
The motherboard tray also comes with a large enough cut-out for heatsink backplate mount.
Lastly at the bottom of the casing itself, dust filters for all openings – 1 for the PSU area and another for the fan area. The bottom of the case comes with mounting holes for 2x 120mm fan.
Casing aside, I’m most impressed by how NZXT packages the screws in individual packets based on screw types.
And not only that, they even stated it clearly in the manual the purpose for each screw type. 😀
More details of the Phantom 530 available at the official product page.
The NZXT Phantom 530 retails at $129.99 and it’s certainly a beautiful casing. In the Malaysian market, the price is about RM 475.
The Phantom 530 also comes in Black and Red, as seen in NZXT Armory.
Is it worth the price? Yes it is, the build is solid and the edges are fine. The NZXT Phantom is the embodiment of elegance in the world of desktop computer casing and it’s certainly worth checking out.
Here’s my setup for the NZXT casing and I think it feels great to behold the sheer amount of space that the Phantom 530 provides.
