NZXT is ready to return to the root of their most recent successful line of PC cases of all time. Nearly every feature, color option, and accessory they have released in the last few years stems from the original NZXT Phantom that was originally released at COMPUTEX 2010. This year we finally get a true successor to the original and they call it the Phantom 530.
The Phantom 530 is not a more compact version, style change, or simply a continuation of the current series. This case is truly the original NZXT Phantom, but just better in every way. The full-tower case now has 70% more cable management room, better airflow, and expanded liquid cooling support (up to 360 mm rad on top and 240 mm on front and bottom). These are features that are now a staple on their current cases, from the Switch 810 to its cousin, the Phantom 630.
The Phantom 530 also gets newer features from the other cases that spawned from the Phantom line. This includes a rear I/O light, full modular HDD cages, steel 5.25" optical drive latches, and integrated 10-port fan hub. It also gets expanded drive space with a single discrete SSD mount behind the motherboard tray. And thanks to the larger window, you can proudly show off all the new features better than ever before.
The Phantom 530 will be available soon in Glossy White, Glossy Black and Glossy Red for an MSRP of $129.99 US. There was no word on whether the Pink Phantom would make its return. More details posted in the press release below.
