5 out of 5 eggsWant options, room to expand, and want plenty of cable management space? Pick this up now.

This review is from: NZXT Phantom 530 White ATX Full Tower Computer Case Includes 1 x 200mm Front, 1 x 140mm Rear 2 x USB 3.0 Fan Controller

Pros: There is just so much space and routing options with this case. I have done my fair share of review watching before building my first PC and the Phantom 530 was the perfect choice. Cable routing is a breeze and the back is so spacious. Modular drive cages give you ample space to work with and to remove unnecessary bulk which can reduce airflow. Radiators of just about every size, if not every size already, can fit in here as well as air coolers. Not to mention, it's the best looking Phantom and full sized tower on the market, IMO. It's not busy and it's definitely not plain. It is just so aesthetically pleasing.

Cons: The labels on the screw bag were a pain in my rear. The only unhelpful section of the manual was concerning the hardware attached i.e. the screws. Not the best renderings by any means. Some of the screws look identical. It should not take anyone more than 5 minutes to distinguish between screws. Not very newbie friendly at all. Also, two screw holes keeping the view panel side on were not drilled wide enough. ODD cages can not be removed easily.

Other Thoughts: My gripes are minor and for an experienced builder who can easily discern what screws go where when they see them, disregard my comment. This case is wonderful and I have not seen any case that comes close to its looks and functionality. I doubt I would ever get another case unless it was another one of THESE. It just does it for me. I'm sold on the 530. There's a reason why this case is SO popular on pcpartpicker. It's as if every other build is using this case. That must mean something, right?

5 out of 5 eggsHave had this case for about a year now. Absolutely love it.

This review is from: NZXT Phantom 530 White ATX Full Tower Computer Case Includes 1 x 200mm Front, 1 x 140mm Rear 2 x USB 3.0 Fan Controller

Pros: Very large, as can be expected with a full tower case. Fully modular design. Built in case fans are nice. Fan speed controller is nice as well. Is also very efficient at keeping out dust, I rarely have to clean it out.

Cons: May need extension cables for some of your components due to the case being so large.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case overall

This review is from: NZXT Phantom 530 White ATX Full Tower Computer Case Includes 1 x 200mm Front, 1 x 140mm Rear 2 x USB 3.0 Fan Controller

Pros: Plenty of room
Rear facing LED allows you to see what you are doing.
Good build quality.
Plenty of room for cable management.
Modular hard drive cages
Reasonable price.
Sexy alienware-esque appearance.
Removable front and bottom dust filters.
Twist ties included for cable management!

Cons: Top grill, and side grill lack dust filers.
Top panel can be hard to take off and i am afraid clips may break with repeated removal.
Front panel has same issue as the top panel with the same fears.
Missing rubber grommets on MoBo tray cut out at the bottom.
Limited radiator support on top.

Other Thoughts: Have had this case for a year, and when i bought it i had done a lot of homework and compared it to several other cases.
I am very pleased overall with the case, and what it has allowed me to do.

There is an included SSD mount in the cable management area, but it would of been nice if there were two of them.
The Hard drives have to be removed from the right side panel (one without the window). I understand why the cables are there, but the drives should slide out in the opposite direction.

It doesn't have a built in card reader; which would of been nice. I knew that going in, but as stated it would of been a nice feature.

The case would of gotten 5 stars (eggs) from me if it weren't for the front and top panels. As mentioned they can be difficult to remove, and the clips that hold them into place i am afraid will break off with repeated removal.
Repeated removal will be required as to get to the front filter you have to take off the front panel.

The top looks to have a lot of room for a radiator, but in order to get my Corsair H100i to fit without blocking the MoBo power connector i had to install the fans on top of the metal supports with the radiator below them. This split level install increases noise from vibrations and reduces overall air flow through the radiator.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat case, but does not fit extended atx motherboards

This review is from: NZXT Phantom 530 White ATX Full Tower Computer Case Includes 1 x 200mm Front, 1 x 140mm Rear 2 x USB 3.0 Fan Controller

Pros: I didn't get to fully load the case due to a major issue (see cons), but from what I saw, it included a lot of hardware and the routing options were nice.

Cons: This is my first time dealing with an extended atx motherboard, so I wasn't sure what to look for. Every site I used verified that this case would be compatible with my motherboard (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813188163), however the space is far too tight to plug in I/O and power cables. Worse the motherboard comes into contact with the rubber cable-routers

One final nit: the threading for the screws seems to be slightly off to the point where screws felt like they were forced into the case.

Pros: - Looks nice

5 out of 5 eggsAll time favorite case!

This review is from: NZXT Phantom 530 White ATX Full Tower Computer Case Includes 1 x 200mm Front, 1 x 140mm Rear 2 x USB 3.0 Fan Controller

Pros: I got this case for my Skylake i7 build. This was my first ever PC build and while I was picking the parts over the course of 5 months, pretty much all my parts changed besides the case. I had my heart set on this case from the start, and boy was it the right pick! Lots and lots of room for upgrades, etc. The airflow is great, I have a 240mm radiator in the top and it's perfectly hidden. I took out the drive bays but put the two drive bay back in, I only have one HDD currently and an ssd so the two bay rack is in there for when I get another hdd. I also have two fans on the bottom of the case next to the PSU for intake fans. Like I said the airflow is great and this case is sexy as hell! It has dust filter which work great for keeping the inside of your case clean.

Cons: The window scratches VERY easy. If I turn my RGB on any color other than pink, you can see them and it doesn't look good at all. But I don't mind pink, and the RGB can be distracting during gaming so I normally just keep it off.

4 out of 5 eggsFirst Time Build , Awesome Case

This review is from: NZXT Phantom 530 White ATX Full Tower Computer Case Includes 1 x 200mm Front, 1 x 140mm Rear 2 x USB 3.0 Fan Controller

Pros: -Very Big - Can mount a push pull radiator configuration with no problem

-Fan Controller (makes cable management a lot easier)

-Pivoted GPU Fan

-Air Filters and Lots of FAN Options

This was my first time building a computer from start to end and I can say this case was very easy to configure and had a clear manual. The Pros outweigh the cons this case is very configurable because my EVGA Z97 Motherboard was very troubling with its sideways power connectors and usb 3.0 connectors , as it is the mobo took half of the cable management rubbers when I installed it. This case however had no problem fitting all the connections when I removed the hard drive cages so I am very satisfied.

Cons: -only 1 ssd slot in the back other cases carry two or more as a person who has no need for optical drives or hard drives I use that space for water cooling and the extra SSD Slot attachment in the back would've been awesome

-window is too sensitive and blurry I always have to be wiping it down with fiber cloth

-Could not find any screws that fitted the SSD to the SSD/HardDrive Trays

Other Thoughts: Needs an awesome lighting system I want this case to illuminate red or blue from all black panels

5 out of 5 eggsRight case for the job

This review is from: NZXT Phantom 530 White ATX Full Tower Computer Case Includes 1 x 200mm Front, 1 x 140mm Rear 2 x USB 3.0 Fan Controller

Pros: *Spacious layout that i needed.
*Tons of fan options

Cons: While i appreciate that NZXT took the time to put the case dimensions here and a lot of other useful information and this in no way was a determinant to me buying this case. I must say i was rather displeased that on a case that boast 10 available fan slots it had no specifications on what size they actually are.

In reality all that did was prevent a one stop shop at newegg. I will just have to purchase the case fans locally.

Other Thoughts: For the case itself I give this a 10/10 for what i needed.

3 out of 5 eggsOnly slightly disappointed

This review is from: NZXT Phantom 530 White ATX Full Tower Computer Case Includes 1 x 200mm Front, 1 x 140mm Rear 2 x USB 3.0 Fan Controller

Pros: Lots of room.
Great overall design.
Amazing top end water cooling set up.
Nice little fan controller
Overall great features

Cons: The side window is very unclear. It looks almost like I'm looking through water when I look inside the case. This knocks 2 eggs off because it really messes up the reason that I picked this case instead of the one with the smaller window, I wanted a clear view of my components, not one that is muddled.

Other Thoughts: Overall I'm happy, but that blurry window is just a killer for me. I doubt I will go with NZXT next time I purchase a case. I know it's just plastic, but I've had Rosewill cases and Cooler Master cases with side panel windows and this one is hands down the worst I've ever had.

4 out of 5 eggsSweet Case

This review is from: NZXT Phantom 530 White ATX Full Tower Computer Case Includes 1 x 200mm Front, 1 x 140mm Rear 2 x USB 3.0 Fan Controller

Pros: Looks Great, Tons of room, Great wire management. Built in Fan/Led control. Lights also look great.

Cons: Only con is that some of the spots where you screw the mother board down didn't fit the same screws across the board. Kind of frustrating to have to shake a screw out after realizing it didn't fit.

Other Thoughts: Just upgraded from a mid to full size case and made my choice based on other reviews. Spent a little more then i wanted to but its well worth the money
