Introducing the Phantom 530

Cooler Master CM Storm Pulse-R

In 2010, NZXT introduced the industry to its Phantom chassis, an aggressively designed, feature-filled case for mainstream users, gamers and enthusiasts alike. Now, NZXT is finally ready to unveil its direct successor, the Phantom 530.

Continuing the legacy of the original, the new Phantom was meticulously designed from the ground up for a refreshing new design that is uncompromising in every way. While creating the Phantom 530, the NZXT design team painstakingly took every beloved aspect of the original and made it even better.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Case

Pros: Very nice case, good build quality, good size easy access.

O/L very happy with purchase. Might buy another soon.

Cons: Not sure how useful the fan controller is vs. using onboard MB control. Cant turn off those back light LEDs without killing power to fan controller. Handy, but would prefer a switch.

Other Thoughts: Glossy (black) finish. Shows finger prints and dust.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat but for one little issue....

Pros: Looks awesome. Lots of room, and GREAT cable management.

Cons: The power button keeps breaking. The button on the outside of the case strikes a white circuit when it's pushed to turn the machine on. However, that white circuit part on the inside keeps coming out of it's slot.

Other Thoughts: If I can get a resolution to this from nzxt, particularly one that doesn't involve me shipping it back, i'll bump it up another egg. Other than this issue I love it. However, I'm not going to put up with years of rigging this thing to work..

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Looking Case

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 button on my motherboard so when testing it I didn't have to worry too much about popping it back into place repeatedly however for normal use it might become an annoyance.

Other Thoughts: 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 fan controller and other cables that came with the case to my mobo.

Regardless I'm enjoying my case! And I hope to get a new motherboard and graphics card for it soon as my motherboard is outdated and multiple USB ports hardly recognize being in use.

4 out of 5 eggsNZXT phantom 530

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 pretty nice glossy finish and matches really well
- Door on the front is surprisingly solid for being made of plastic
- Reset button is behind the front door! so you dont have a chance to hit it accidentally
- Stealthy looking I/O
- Support for dual 140mm rad in the top, 140mm rad in the back and even side if you wanted, and the bottom comes out for even more water cooling support
- Removable dust filters on the bottom for psu and the possible fans
- SSD mount in the back of the motherboard tray
- Every 3.5inch hdd mounts support a 2.5inch ssd or hdd
- Pretty great value considering all you're getting
- Has their back I/O lighting which comes in handy

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 sidepanel doesnt have a built in dust filter. I want to use this as an intake but i can't atm.

Other Thoughts: 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.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Case

Pros: Everything I expected to be there was there. Lots of room & what all the video reviews say are correct.

Cons: To power the Fan hub you'll need a Molex or 2 other cables i couldn't for the life of me identify.

Other Thoughts: Excellent case. If your looking for a case to last with some good fans, this one is for YOU!

4 out of 5 eggsGood case overall

Pros: Tons of space - I mean really its pretty big!

Removable hard drive cages- Great for additional room / airflow

Open mesh top - Honestly this case has great ariflow top is open mesh which allows good airflow through it but also doesn't look bad

Removable dust filters on the bottom are great for keeping your rig clean on the inside

I/o light - quite useful in darker rooms

Overall looks great and had great functionality

Cons: I'm not a fan of the glossy finish, it scratches and marks waaaaaaaay to easily also the window is the same

Other Thoughts: Not a case I would use for a LAN party machine it marks up way to easily other then that is your can be careful and delicate its a pretty good case just keep a cloth on hand to clean all the smudges off of it. I don't think i'd buy a glossy finish case again...



I guess its not really a negative but what is with the hype over hardware controls for fan speed. Its a pain in the behind really, software control based on actual thermal readings is 1000 times better and lots of gaming motherboards have great fan control that you can customize.
