Price at time of Review: $89.99 USD
 

WHAT WE LIKED:

Modular HDD cages of different sizes, Tool free HDD mounting is very easy and secure, 2.5 inch drive position behind mother board tray, Support for large or small radiators (up to 360 mm), Large CPU back plate cutout, Support for up to 9 fans, Excellent airflow throughout, Excellent cable routing, Large angled side window covers HDD cage from view, Dust filters on all intake areas, 2 Year Warranty
 

WHAT WE DISLIKED:

No rubber grommets in some spots
 
BOTTOM LINE:
Let me finish by saying NZXT has exceeded all my expectations with the Source 530 by building a Full Tower chassis that won’t break the bank. Those words on the front of the box “Simple, Affordable, Capable” say it all.

    Awesome Review Vinny. We are now offering a grommet package for the case for 5 bucks through the NZXT Armory store only.
