Up Close:  Exterior Overview and Roof

Having voiced our thoughts on NZXT keeping it simple for the Source 530 we're delighted to see that they've done away with the frippery of a half window, half fan grill design we've been having a bit of a go at them about for some time now.  Instead they've wisely opted for a single good sized slightly angled window.  Well done NZXT!

Although not covering the entirety of the side panel the window lets you see the sexy bit whilst shielding the more mundane drive racks from view.

The roof of the case is made from steel with circular mesh covering it almost entirely.  The front of the case is again given over to a mesh.  Thinner and finer than that in the roof and painted a gloss Black, matching the 3 vented 5.25" bay covers perfectly.

Slotted screw holes spaced for 3x120 and 2x140 can mean only one thing.  That's right boys and girls, like the Phantom 530 the Source 530 can also take a 360 or 280 rad in the roof.  We'll see how thick when we move to the build.  Meantime it's nice to see that NZXT have popped a 120mm white bladed fan in there.

pretty decent case for a super tight full tower budget build, shame about the lack of grommets thoughQuote
