Computex: NZXT Unveil The Phantom 530 Chassis At Computex 2013

/ 3 years ago


Back in 2010 NZXT released the original Phantom chassis into the wild and its aggressive and highly unique style choices really made it stand out from the crowd, something that proved popular with mainstream users, gamers and enthusiasts around the world. It’s still popular today and you don’t have to look far at LAN gaming events to spot more than a few people rocking a Phantom chassis for their system, more often that not they’re also heavily customized and modded systems too.

“Everything you loved about the original, only better.” teases NZXT in their latest press release.

Now that NZXT has built a legacy for the original Phantom, not to mention earning sizable fame with many of their recent chassis designs, many of which I regard as some of the best cases ever made! They’re pleased to reveal its direct successor, the Phantom 530, which NZXT say their design team have painstakingly created by making every aspect of the original even better.

The chassis now has 70% more cable management space, even more airflow, better liquid cooling support and support for many of today’s extreme builds with improved component compatibility, effectively bringing the Phantom in to speed with the rest of the NZXT range which feature some of the most robust cable routing and cooling options on the market today.

NZXT will also introduce other popular NZXT features such as the modular HDD cages, discrete SSD mount, signature rear LED, 30w fan controller, 10 port fan hub, the largest window panel ever seen on the Phantom range and a whole lot more. Naturally the setup wouldn’t be complete without support for the flagship NZXT water cooler and the Kraken X40 and X60 radiators, or any radiator up to 360mm in the top, 240mm front or 240 bottom should fit with ease.

The Phantom 530 will be available soon in Glossy White, Black and Red for $129.99, well hopefully have one in for review as soon as possible and we hope to stop by their display at Computex this week to get some up close pictures for you.

Thank you NZXT for providing us with this information

    NZXT really do make some nice cases and this one at $130 looks like one of them. I hope we get an option of both window & windowless cases. I’d be interested in the red one because my study/office is mainly furnished in red but I don’t want a case with a window. I’m long past the boy racer stage of my life.
