In 2010, NZXT introduced the industry to its Phantom chassis, an aggressively designed, feature-rich case for mainstream users, gamers and enthusiasts alike. Now, NZXT is finally ready to unveil its direct successor, the Phantom 530.

Continuing the legacy of the original, the new Phantom was meticulously designed from the ground up resulting in a refreshing new design that is uncompromising in every way. While creating the Phantom 530, the NZXT design team painstakingly took every beloved aspect of the original and made it even better.
With up to 70% more cable management space, more airflow and even more liquid cooling support, the Phantom 530 features phenomenal support for even the most extreme performance builds.

Sweet looking case. Listed on Caseking for pre-order at 120€, which isn't too bad. I just hope that the side mesh part has dust-filtering, and that it's compatible with the H100i.

Kind of nice... Never had NZXT cases, but have always thought they at least look impressive.
