NZXT Presents Source 530 Gaming PC Case

NZXT is well known manufacturer, specializing in computer cases for real gamers with nice unique and stylish design. Today they release new model with codename Source 530 which has black exterior/interior and a chic NZXT logo, highlighted in white. Next to it we can find two fast USB 3.0 ports and also audio in and out. Front panel is made from special mesh, which helps to keep quiet and efficient airflow inside your PC. As one of the first models on the market, the Source 530 has place to install inside extra fan with pivot feature, which can be rotated manually towards CPU more or on graphic cards, depending on the needs.

At the front cover there are three external 5.25" bays, which can be used to install for example Blu-Ray burner and dual water cooling reservoir. Below them we can find six bays in cages for 3.5" HDDs, where we can install also 2.5" SSD. All the cages all fully modular, what gives the possibility to install even four two-slot graphic cards with maximum length of 444mm. In this situation we can still use one 2.5" slot behind mainboard tray. NZXT Source 530 is not big tower type, but it can still fit all the latest motherboards like E-ATX, ATX, microATX and Mini-ITX. Like it would not be enough, there is also a space to mount water cooling radiators, including the biggest 360mm at the top.

NZXT chassis has on the left side stylish window and the case has preinstalled cable management system, so the view of our running PC would be really absolutely perfect. Next to it there is also included HUB to which you can connect up to ten fans and control them manually or set them on automatic work which depends on system temperature.
NZXT Source 530 will be available in November in Europe from Caseking.

Reminds me a lot of a Fractal Define except for a few cosmetic differences.

Nice looking case, but the press release is terrible to read. It seems like a copy/paste from a Chinese vender who's using google translate.

I wish my Phantom could accommodate radiators as easily as this one does. :(

Looks like a solid no-nonsense case with tons of room for ventilation and nice radiator support. If this makes it to the US at under $100 it'll definitely be something I would recommend for full-size ATX builds.

Inside looks a lot like my Antec P280, except the Antec is a bit deeper.

It's a shame they went with the same hard drive cage design as the h630, it's utter rubbish.

Why is it rubbish. A fully modular HDD cage is a great feature that not alot of companies is doing.

That's exactly what ran through my mind. Pretty sad they didn't include them. Even Fractal did in their Arc Midi R2 and I paid a bit over $70 after tax. There's no way I'd ever suggest this over the Fractal.

Had the wrong case name, woops. Edited.
