Introduction:

In 2010, NZXT introduced us to its Phantom chassis, an aggressively designed, feature-filled case for mainstream users, gamers and enthusiasts alike. Now, NZXT has unveiled its direct successor, the Phantom 530. Today we will be looking at this Full Tower chassis from NZXT, continuing the legacy of the original. The new Phantom has been redesigned from the ground up. While creating the Phantom 530, the NZXT design team painstakingly took every beloved aspect of the original design and revamped it to make it even better.

 

The new Phantom 530 brings with it many new changes such as modular hard drive cages, a discrete SSD mount behind the motherboard tray, its signature rear I/O LEDs, a single channel three speed 30W fan controller with integrated 10-port fan hub, and steel 5.25″ optical drive latches. All of this comes with an MSRP of just $129.00. Join me as we take an up close and personal look to see if NZXT can breathe new life into an already phenomenal line of cases with their Phantom 530.
