Computex: We Get Up Close With The NZXT Phantom 530
Peter Donnell / 6 years ago
The NZXT Phantom is one of the most popular chassis designs on the market, in fact NZXT are one of the most accomplished and popular brands on the market and while the original Phantom is still a great chassis, NZXT figured it was time to revisit the classics and give it a new lease of life by tweaking, nipping, tucking and customizing almost every aspect of it to meet the demands of more modern gaming rigs.
The Phantom 530 is set to be $10 cheaper than the original phantom was at launch, making this great value for money although of course you could likely pick up the older one for a lot less these days.
There will be black, white and red editions available and all the features of the original Phantom are present, if somewhat refined and improved.
The chassis is wider than the original and there is room for a single 200mm fan behind the front panel.
The is room for a 140mm fan / rad in the rear, the top panel can support up to 360mm radiators, the front panel has room for a 240mm radiator, so too does the bottom panel making this chassis extremely versatile in terms of cooling options
Usual NZXT hall marks are here too, such as extensive dust filters, stealth SSD mounts behind the motherboard and a 10 port fan hub.
Modular HDD bays that are completely removable, each featuring 2.5″ and 3.5″ compatible trays.
High quality metal drive snap locks on the 5.25″ drive bays.
Three hard drive bays so you can tailor them to your requirements.
Internal 140mm fan mount for extra GPU airflow.
The exterior chassis has also been slightly adjusted to give a new, more curved overall design.
