5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

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

Pros: When I purchased this case, I didn't realize how big it would be. I was surprised, but happy.
This case has great airflow and lots of space
The I/O lighting is really helpful for the rear ports, especially since they're in a darker area.
Installing parts is easy and they feel very secure.
I liked the door covering the 5.25" bays. It makes the case look sleeker and cooler.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: My fan controller doesn't seem to work, but I am pretty sure I didn't wire it correctly. This is the first computer I have built after all.

4 out of 5 eggsAn overall good buy

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

Pros: This case has a lot of room and great cable management. There are plenty of expansion bays for hard drives and their side to side orientation leaves more space for air flow and keeps the cables hidden out of sight. Easily the cleanest build I've ever had. I also managed to get a Corsair H100i inside with very little trouble(getting the CPU power plugged in was tricky). The integrated fan controller is awesome and there are even LED lights on the back near all the I/O ports you can turn on with a button press that makes plugging things in easier. There are also dust filters on the bottom that are super easy to clean.

Cons: Heavy, though it's a large case so it should be expected. The color of the plastic top and front panel is several shades darker than the metal sides and back. It's not noticeable from afar but it's very obvious up close.

Other Thoughts: While the color difference was a bit disappointing when I unpacked the case, the ease of install and sheer amount of room and convenience features definitely made up for it. It's a sharp looking case and the clean build gets a lot of compliments. I would definitely recommend it.

1 out of 5 eggsPhantom 530 - Red

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

Pros: Cool looking case but outside of that all of the bells and whistles didn't even work.

Cons: I am writing this review simply because NZXT has some of the worst customer support I have ever dealt with. My case shipped with a defective I/O light and fan speed controller. (its all basically one chip that handles the power for the fan speed and I/O light on the rear of the computer. I opened a ticket on the NZXT support site and my issue has yet to be resolved. I was told by one of the reps that they will ship me the part but that was a month ago and I haven't heard form them since. If you are looking to be backed by this products customer support in case something on your case does not work i suggest you look elsewhere. Cool master and Corsair have great cases. NZXT really needs to get better customer support. It amazes me that you are not even able to speak to a live representative considering how big their company is. No number to contact, nothing. Live chat is offline every time that i visit their website.

Other Thoughts: very dissatisfied with this purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsHUGE CASE!

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

Pros: Great case, very modular, its bigger on the inside! Love all the filters that let air go but help cut down on dust and other debris. Case was easy to work on and the connectors actually connect to everything on the motherboard.

Cons: its heavy

5 out of 5 eggsWOW that shipped fast

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

Pros: This is a great case I really enjoy and recomend it if you want to know more that is why newegg post the infograph above.

Cons: None so far its a full tower and exactly what I expected the only thing is I wish the power button pushed in all the way like my coolermaster haf 932 case instead of a quickswitch.

Other Thoughts: This is what blew my mind is that I ordered this thing for my build and I got it in under 30 hours without paying anything extra for shipping. A+++ newegg I will continue to return!

5 out of 5 eggsFirst Build

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

Pros: Really nice case. Easy to work with, lots of room and even more room with the removable HDD cages. SSD dock behind motherboard is pretty convenient. Fan hub is awesome. Side window panel gives a great view to the hardware inside.

Cons: The red on the plastic and on the metal are different colors. The front bezel is hard to take off which is required to clean the fan or install a new one. Location of the Power button sucks... I've pressed it a couple times on accident (I leave it on top of my desk) and friends have pressed on it trying to lay their hands on the case to look around the back of it. Should have been placed behind the door near the reset button and drive bays.

Other Thoughts: Removing the bezels is a bit of a pain and it seems prone to breaking the clips but overall great case and I don't think i made a mistake getting it.

4 out of 5 eggsNZXT Phantom 530 (Red)

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

Pros: First off I want to say that after doing a lot of research on computer towers I decided to narrow my search down to just full tower ATX cases (This one being one of my top choices). I wanted a case that would allow me to upgrade to pretty much anything if I wanted to in the future. This case was exactly what I was looking for in that regard. This case supports pretty much any combination of fan sizes and any combination of water cooling kits on the market today. Aesthetically, I wanted a red case that also looked very nice. This case also fit into that category, it looks great with the exception of something that I noticed (see cons).

Cons: The only con about this case that I wasn't to pleased about was that the sides of the case are a different shade of red then the top plastic pieces. i read this on another review on here but I was hoping that it was just a manufacturer defect. Had to knock off an egg for that but other that the color the case is as described.

Other Thoughts: I should have probably gone with the white or black since those two colors are hard to get wrong.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic!!!!

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

Pros: - Epic Cable management.
- 2 LED lights built in to illuminate the rear input out put a button on top activates them
- Good fan positioning
- Nice front door
- AMAZING CURVES (reminiscent of an Audi R8)
- Room for air cooling

Cons: The top pannel is tedious to remove b/c of a cheap anchor system, but if you only take it off every now and then it's nothing to detract from this case.

Other Thoughts: Looks amazing with a strike x LCD fan controller and two 12" red cold cathodes!

Newegg customer service is absolutely wonderful!

2 out of 5 eggsGet the 630 instead

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

Pros: Easy to install most components (see cons).

Cons: The top is plastic and very difficult to remove (required to install a cooler). The switch top in the top did not operate smoothly; I had to shave the plastic switch top with a cutting tool. Also the actual switch underneath popped out and a piece broke off. I am still waiting for a replacement top and switch [it has been 7 weeks since NZXT said they would send me the replacement parts]. If you install a Corsair H110 cooler you can only use the lower 5-1/4 inch bay since the cooling tubes will infringe on the upper two drive bays space. The case needs to be about one inch longer.

Other Thoughts: The specs read great but too many problems with the plastic construction for the top as well as the 5-1/4 drive bay issue.. Get the 630 - a few bucks more and much better case or the AZZA Genesis - my favorite case except it is about 3/4 inch too tall to fit under my work table - the Genesis sometimes is on sale for about the price of the 530 [I paid less with a rebate].
