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: fan controller is nice and lots of cable room, hard drive cages slide out on the same side you plug cables in, radiator support

Cons: color matching (on the red version at least) isn't even close, and the side panels just fall off without screws

Other Thoughts: the cons wouldn't be a big deal, but for the price I expected better

4 out of 5 eggsSolid 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: Very spaceous, one of the few solid red cases available on the market, many fan mounting options, solid construction

Cons: Though the case supports Kraken AIO coolers, I experienced limitations for the mounting options with the Corsair H100i GTX. I had intended to have the radiator installed beneath the top lid and have the fans installed beneath it inside the case for a Push configuration. Unfortunately, the radiator's hose placement and the case's hole alignment prevents the radiator's bottom holes for the fan screws from aligning properly such that any more than 2 screws would be able to be fastened. As such, the only options were to install a Pull configuration sandwiched beneath the lid and case or to install a Push configuration entirely inside the case. Since I'm using an Asus Sabertooth Z97 Mark S board with large TUF system, the Push configuration was not an option due to insufficient clearance for the fans (this is my fault in motherboard choice, not the case's fault). Because of this, I was forced to use a pull installation with my radiator installed inside the case and the case fans installed above it.

Some of the LED / power headers do not fit snugly around the motherboard pins and will just fall out. I've come to expect loose single pin headers from prior builds, but these don't stay at all. These had to be taped into place!

Only 2 fans included. For the price, there should really be 3-4 as is typically found with other cases.

Also, my window side panel warps when it is removed, however this is a minor detail

Other Thoughts: If you like the design of this case and want a spacious design with plenty of cable management and cooling options, you really can't go wrong with this one. Just be careful if you plan on mounting a large radiator on top of your

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. Fits all my components well and gives great options of mounting all your hardware.

Cons: Only thing I can think of is that its a tad smaller than youd think. Just a little little bit. I still had room for my components including my Sli 980's but it had just little less space than my previous case (a raidmax vampire).

4 out of 5 eggsWonderful 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: Deep Red (pictures are deceiving) This case has lots of room for cooling, MB, Video cards etc. the space behind the motherboard mount is very nice for cable management. Large 200mm intake fan in the front.

Cons: Not enough pre installed fans for the price. Should have added LED fans instead of plain. Liquid cooling had to be installed with fans on top as there wasn't enough room for my H110 radiator to be installed in a push pull configuration.-1egg

Other Thoughts: Had to name it Maximillion due to the intense red paint and the addition of a 200mm red led fan. (the blackhole).

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: Plenty of room for water cooling options , building and generally anything else.Great construction nice and solid build with good custom ability with the hard drive bays. I also purchased two 200mm Cooler Master fans to go with this case for exhausting air through the top. A word of warning the top can be difficult to remove and when instslling the 200mm fans had to use the screws that came with the case since the screws that came with the fans were to large for the holes. The rubber grommets for cable management are very solid and do not easily fall out of place.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: Great case for the money if you are looking for a full size case.

3 out of 5 eggsBad Customer Service

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: Good Price, decent product and plenty of features.

Cons: Parts are not the best. Usb 3.0 port breaks easily. Customer service is not so great. Took a week and multiple tickets submitted in different ways to get a response. Said replacement parts were on the way in a couple of days. Almost a month went by and nothing until I asked and was told they were out. They never gave an update or anything. So I have been without a working case for 2 months now just to get in a couple of cables that I will replace myself.

Other Thoughts: Okay price for what you get but, usb 3.0 port breaks easily handle with care and bad customer service. You will most likely have to repair this case if you buy it so keep that in mind.

5 out of 5 eggsThis case is my personality

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: Comes in Red, big, interesting design, well organized with screws, cover over disk drives, on-off button for mini flashlights inside and in back (easier to plug things in the dark!), feels cool

Cons: USB plug was too big to fit in the connectors to the motherboard. Some spots are easy to handprint, Otherwise, no issues so far

Other Thoughts: It is beautiful. I plan on using it and never replacing it for the rest of my years of pc gaming.

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 lots of room and great back panel for tucking away wires and what have you. also has a "hub" for fans an other accessories.
window into the case makes for a beautiful view if you light up your case its well done . solid case for its price.

Cons: not so happy with the fan control wiring harness. also case is hard to get to snap back together ... ive lost my love loss for its stiffness in fitting the top and front in particular front first then top ... .i borderline punch the parts back into place as they are very hard to snap back in.

4 out of 5 eggsGood 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: I bought this case because it had everything I was looking for in a case

Cons: I'm not sure how their quality control operates but like several other people had mentioned, The Red of the plastic does not match the paint they used on the rest of the case.

plastic top and front is a dark red, case is a little bit brighter red in color

Also my Side panel is warped. While in the case all is fine and it looks nice and flat however when you take off the side the panel naturally wants to tweak slightly. I wonder if it has to do with when they punch out the hole for the window

Other Thoughts: the color thing was only a minor inconvenience as I plan to do a custom paint job on this case and only needed the red for a base color
