NZXT Source 530 Review
Up Close: Stripped
The Source 530 in all it's naked glory. Not a bad bit of kit for £80 is it. Very solid construction combined with a good use of cross head screws makes for good quality build as well as great modding potential. Our thoughts on this case sharing the Phantom lineage are also confirmed now that we have the front off, which is by no means a bad thing.
With the fascia removed we were delighted to find that both front I/O modules remained screwed to the chassis. Why were we delighted? Well if you want to change the front filter you have to take the front fascia off to get at it and can you imagine how much of a fag that would be if you had to feed wires through every time.
Talking of the front intake area we can't help noticing that although there are fitting points for 2x120, 2x140 or even a 200mm fan there's actually nothing installed out of the box. We think at the vey least there ought to be a 120 in here, even if it was a the expense of the roof mounted unit supplied.
