The Build and Finished Product
Just so that you have a much better idea of what this chassis has to offer in the realm of cooling options, I went ahead and peeled all of the plastic components so we can see under and behind them. All of the I/O components stay with the chassis, and even without the bays in place, this chassis is very solid.
Since we know what the front of the chassis looks like, and even with the DVD drive installed, with the door closed, nothing changes at all in appearance. I figured I would move in much closer so you can better appreciate the reset button and the naming indented into the plastic when molded.
Look at all the room in this thing. Even with the ATX build in place, a fairly large air cooler, and what is by today's standards an average-sized video card, I still have more than enough for up to four radiators inside of this chassis, and with the +1 drive in the back, you really don't need any drive bays, at least I don't.
There are no surprises to be found in the back of the chassis. The exhaust fan wiring is pretty tight from the factory, and makes the dust shield installation take a look first, but the card and PSU fit in like a glove.
Behind the tray, you can see the SSD in next to the fan hub, and you can get really creative with the wiring. I would like to mention that the USB 3.0 and HD Audio cables are so long, they got wired across the top, down the right side, before they enter the main compartment to the right of the SSD.
Buttoned back up now, the Phantom 530 sits and awaits power. The window offers a good view of the interior, but the angle does cut off the view of the end of the video card. Other than that, I say we get some juice running through her and see what happens.
With power added, there isn't anything that jumps right out at you. Even with the fan controller maxed out, there is very little noise coming from the chassis, in the range of 33 dB. There is a dim light strip on the left side of the chassis, where you put your hand to open the front door. These LEDs are white, and did not show up in the image much at all. You have to be looking almost dead straight at it to even see it.
