5 out of 5 eggsParker

Pros: -Plenty of room inside of case
-Lots of fan support
-Lots of HDD/SSD cages

Cons: -The case is relatively large.

Other Thoughts: If you are going to upgrade your PC in the future, and you don't want to worry about any sort of size restriction, go with this case. This is one of the best cases in it's price range.

5 out of 5 eggsNZXT Source 530 CA-SO530-M1 Matte Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Nice room inside case. Works with a 240mm radiator but just 2 120mm fans and not 4 120mm fans on radiator. So you can not have a push pull system on the radiator. Not enough room.

Cons: None so far.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the money

Pros: Remarkably well built and laid out. Lots of modularity to the internals. Lots of places to place fans.

Can fit a standard to slim 360 radiator on the roof and if you remove all of the hdd cages and mount a single SSD behind the motherboard tray you can fit a 240mm radiator in the front. It is possible to lay a 240mm radiator on the floor of the case, but my psu was too long (7.5") and it wouldn't fit that way.

Paint is acceptable if a bit prone to scratching.

The large side window is quite good if you like that sort of thing.

The included fan splitter is a sneaky good addition. Given that you could mount 8 total fans (9 if you include the directional internal fan) to the case this seems like a wonderful inclusion for somebody that either wanted a well cooled pc or a silent one with lots of slow moving fans.

Cable management behind the motherboard tray is a breeze with plenty of room to tuck cables away out of sight and not in the patch of air flow. I had no issues getting the side panel back on after wiring 7 fans, 2 video cards, SSD, and all the other basics and hid all cables as best I could behind the tray.

Excellent access to all of the filters for intake. Should make cleaning them a breeze. Rear one for the PSU is the only bad one and I would have to remove my PC entirely from under my desk to get it.

Overall the quality is top notch for its price and I am not disapointed with my purchase.

Cons: These are truly minor and don't let the dissuade from getting a top notch case for a great price.

No rubber grommets around cable management holes. I ordered the set from NZXT to solve this, but 5 for the grommets, and another 5 for shipping. My desire to keep things looking clean cost me 10 bucks. Worth it but had to order from another site.

Front panel IO leads for the LED's isn't well marked and my poor eyesite had a hard time determining positive and negative on the leads.

Paint does chip and scratch, have a couple already from where the screwdriver slipped mounting chassis fans.

Other Thoughts: This is a really good case, and if you're willing to be a bit creative can hold quite a lot of radiator space internally if you're into water cooling. The included fan splitter is really nice and can help if you run out of leads from the motherboard to at least provide power to a few more fans, obviously fan control becomes an issue but thats why inline voltage reducers exist. The rear IO light while neat isn't a huge selling point for me but for those that like it well enjoy.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Case value I have seen

Pros: Classy lines without the flash and flair found elsewhere
Good cable management behind try
Modular drive cages allow your imagination to run wild when putting unit together.
Great cooling options, have several locations where you can mount radiators and fans to fit just about any system you have in mind.
i/o panel led is great option.

Cons: no grommets on the cable management in compartment
included fans not led fans.
fan hub allows no speed control on the fans.

Other Thoughts: I had gotten this on sale and finally got around to moving out of my existing mid-tower. I like the layout and configuration, makes outfitting case easy. Put h100i on top with ease and plenty of clearance to mobo with 1 set of fans.

If you are looking for a functional and pretty darn understated case to put your next build in, this one offers great bang for the buck

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case from what I had.

Pros: Very spacious, Customizable, Dust filters, and many spots for fans/blocks.

Cons: Fan hub runs every single fan 100% had to order 2 nzxt fan controllers to run every fan I have. Not really a con I guess, just not enough research.

4 out of 5 eggsNZXT Source 530

Pros: Plenty of Room For fans , water cooling, or graphics card. It was pretty easy to swap my mATX Motherboard into this case. Cable management is good.There is a switch in the front of the case that lets you turn on LEDs in the back so you dont have to use your phone to plug in cords etc.

Cons: My only complaint is that the 2 USB 3.0 ports on the front of the case don't work. I know it isn't my motherboard because the other case worked fine. A little disappointing but still a good buy.

Other Thoughts: If NZXT would fix their USB 3.0 ports than i would recommend this case to anyone, But i cant without this fix.

3 out of 5 eggsGood but....

Pros: Good quality, nice features, great price.

Cons: Hard to believe it doesn't have a Hard Drive LED. What type of case doesn't have a hard drive LED? Sure, it's inexpensive, but a $0.50 LED would break NZXT's profit margin?

Other Thoughts: OK, it does have a HD LED, it's part of the POWER LED, It's not even a different color from the power LED, which means it's impossible to tell the slight flicker which is suppose to indicate HD activity. Come on NZXT, how hard is it to provide a STANDARD CASE LED that's been part of every case since the old 8088 days.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, Valued NZXT Customer

We do apologize for the issue though the activity light is the power button which was designed to be more simplistic. The design was implemented to have the power light on at all times when it would blink that would be activity response. If any parts do wear down or seems like any fans are grinding or making a coil whine please contact us. Also what you can do is visit our support site at support.nzxt.com once there at the top right we would need you to do is submit a request. Also you can contact us directly at +1-800-228-9395.

Kind regards,
NZXT Support.

4 out of 5 eggslooks small in picture

Pros: awesome case and the rear LED lighting helps out a lot when connecting it in dark places. cable management was ok but I did have a lot to connect. nice "NZXT" in front lit up with a white LED.

Cons: NO LED LIGHTS INSIDE! Feels a little cheap, no front fans, only one in the rear and one on the top. (120mm). the bottom of the case has two big holes for the fans. without the removable screen, you can stick your hand inside

Other Thoughts: besides only having two fans in the case, I moved them both to the front and used my NZXT water cooler 120mm radiator and fan in the rear. covered one of the open fan ports on the bottom with another 120mm fan and all ok. I recommend getting more fans since this case supports up to 9 of them. it already comes with two with the 3 pin connectors.
