NZXT Launches new Phantom 530 and H230 cases at Computex 2013

The Phantom 530 will also be available in white and black

NZXT has unveiled a pair of new PC cases here at Computex 2013: the Phantom 530 and new low-noise chassis called H230.

It’s been a frantic week for new product launches at Computex 2013 and NZXT hasn’t missed out, launching a pair of new cases; the Phantom 530 and the H230.

The Phantom 530 continues the now familiar Phantom styling, but adds a larger door and reduces the area of trim around its front and roof fascia. The ATX case can support up to a triple-120mm radiator in the roof, with a double-120mm-radiator in the front, while still offering all the NZXT extras such a built-in fan controller and rear I/O lighting.

Plenty of cable routing options behind the painted motherboard tray, removable drive cages and removable fascia plates make customising the interior to suit your hardware and cooling needs easy, while the overall build quality was impressive; we’ll be getting our hands on a review sample soon.

Contrastingly, the H230 is a low-noise chassis that eschews the bold styling of the Phantom for a more minimalist approach. With noise-deadening padding on the side panels and inside of the front fascia’s door there’s understandably fewer fan mounts, although the middle drive cage can sill be removed to optimise airflow.

The H-230 is large and spacious, with noise-deadening foam on its side panels.

My next case is going to be a 900D, Little Devil LD-V8 or a self build.

I have a Switch 810 at the moment and it's not bad, but it just feels cheap and the clips for the top fan cover have broken after it was took off a few times during rebuilds.

Won't be buying another NZXT case.

Don't hate on Billy Zane and his movies, the guy is great! Have you even seen Demon Knight?!

I have always bought NZXT cases. I have always loved them. Amazing airflow when you have all fans installed. I have no idea why you people say the feel cheap. The plastics are always pretty strong. I haven;t broken a tab or anything yet and I have rebuilt and done full cleanings of all my cases numerous times throughout their usage. I find full aluminum cases look like crap and never have style.

I think I might grab an the 530. It's not that bad looking and the window is rather nice.

Plus it'll be a bit cozier than my gigantic HAF.
