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.
