    NZXT has taken the body of the Phantom 530 and fused it with the more affordable Source line. With the same model number, the Source 530 aims to give the user all the functionality of the Phantom at a cheaper price point.

    I really like NZXT cases, they offer a great bang for the buck. My go to cheap server chassis is still the Source 210.

    One of the things I really like about the Source 530, that I think was overlooked in this review, is the top fan screw holes. It is really innovative(at least I've never seen it anywhere else). Not only does it allow the fans to be mounted in differing positions, but it also deals with the issue of radiators having slightly different screw patterns. It is odd, but more than once I've bought 240mm rads and the screws didn't line up with the case. Like the spacing between the two fans was slightly too wide. The design on this case means that wouldn't be a problem, I like that.

    You and me both!

    I think ALL cases should've had this fan PCB header long ago!
    Man, now if I could make a retrofit and Patten it, and be a rich bitch! o_O:peace:

    nice review, and the hdd tray is worrying, although it holds right
