NZXT Phantom 530 Full-Tower Chassis
The line down the middle of the front bezel is barely discernible, but you can see how well the black mesh at the bottom of the door, and the black accents on either side of the front door, really "pop" in this design.
As it should, the front door swings to the right and allows you access to the three removable bay covers, offers a reset button at the top, and has the NZXT and Phantom 530 name pressed right into the plastic. The door is supported with sturdy metal hinges, and it kept shut via magnets in the door.
The top of the chassis is one continuous and smooth swoop from the front up and over the top. At the back you find a large mesh panel to allow the multitude of fan options room to flow out of the chassis. Near the front you are offered a two position fan control switch and the button to turn on the rear I/O lighting.
On the right side of the top panel, very near the front of the chassis, you find the rest of the I/O panel. Here is a large power button, a pair of USB 3.0 ports, and some HD Audio 3.5mm jacks.
The left side of the chassis offers you a very large window that is angled like all the rest of the lines on the Phantom. Taking the same angle as it runs near that window, there is also a mesh panel near the HDD bays that allows the option to place in a 140mm fan.
Looking at the rear of the 530, you see the top is very tall and will allow for thick radiators to go under it. You then see the slotted fan mounting holes to let you customise the positioning of it. You also get eight expansion slots, the pair of water cooling holes, and the PSU goes in the bottom of this tower.
The right side of the chassis offers nothing real fancy, just a large expanse of steel that is painted to match the rest of the case. Since there is a minimum of 26mm inside of here, there is no real need for a bump in this panel.
On the underside of the Phantom, you will find four large round feet giving this large chassis sturdy footing. You will also see that the power supply gets its own dust filter that pulls out the back. Under the optional fan mounting locations in the floor, the dust filter pulls out the front.
