Consumers in the market for a new chassis should give consideration to what's on offer from NZXT. The Californian outfit may be a relative newcomer to this space, but it has quickly built up an impressive array of options across its Phantom, H, and...

Let us recap my reasoning and scoring method before diving into my final words. First I look at what the company is saying it offers. For example, say the company states the case supports large / long graphic cards or ten quiet fans. In this example, I...

Simple, Affordable, Capable – those are three keywords NZXT hopes to carry across with the Source 530 and luckily, it meets the description in spades. The sub-$100 case market is arguably one of the most competitive despite being the price point where...

NZXT was not joking in the slightest when they added those three words to the front of the packaging. First of those words is "Simple". Here is where the external aesthetics and design come into play, as well as how well the internal design allows for a...

NZXT states that the Source line is designed to be a starter case for first time builders. Keeping the price low, while offering features the the more expensive cases offer; the Source 530 has a retail price of $89.99, and even includes a 2 year...

Let me finish by saying NZXT has exceeded all my expectations with the Source 530 by building a Full Tower chassis that won't break the bank. Those words on the front of the box “Simple, Affordable, Capable” say it...

The Source 530 might lack some of the refinements of more expensive cases - it isn't as lust-worthy as the Obsidian 750D for example, but at just £80, it punches well above its weight. It's easily one of the best cases we've seen for this kind of...

NZXT has built a fine case for the user who requires a lot of space and a full tower case without breaking the bank. Their declaration “Simple, Affordable, Capable” is one of the most honest things I have seen in marketing ever. The case is very...

It's fair to say that prior to opening the box and with no prior knowledge of the Source 530, our hopes weren't awfully high. The reason for this reticence stems from our experience over the years of manufacturers who put a lot R&D, high levels of...

The NZXT Source 530 Case has a simple, but elegance design. It's much more affordable than other full tower cases on the market. Also, it has all the main features you should be looking for including, lots of drive bays, tooless design, cable management,...

NZXT are well-known in the industry for their ultra high end enthusiast chassis, with products such as the Phantom 820 and the H630 simply blowing us away with their no compromise, feature packed designs. There is of course just one big downside to their...

NZXT, azienda leader da diversi anni nella produzione di svariati e diversi componenti per PC, si è da subito affermata per la qualità ed il design dei suoi prodotti. NZXT riesce a soddisfare una vasta gamma di utenti grazie alla varietà di prodotti...

International Review By Technic3D on 86

Obwohl NZXT bei dem Source 530 auf das ein oder andere Ausstattungsmerkmal aus Preisgründen verzichtet hat, ist dennoch ein beachtlich ausgereiftes Gehäuse entstanden. Die unauffällig gradlinige Formsprache des Gehäuses ist exemplarisch für das...

International Review By Nexthardware on 80

Il Source 530 non è certamente un case che colpisca l'immaginazione degli utenti, al pari di altri prodotti di casa NZXT, ma potrebbe incontrare il favore di un pubblico piuttosto eterogeneo. Ancora una volta dobbiamo esprimere il nostro apprezzamento...

International Review By PCWorld France on 80

S'il avait été vendu au prix auquel on le trouve aux Etats-Unis (soit moins de 90$ en cherchant bien), le NZXT Source 530 aurait presque pu prétendre au titre de must-have dans sa catégorie. Or chez nous, c'est au prix de 105€ qu'on le trouve, soit à...

Estamos ante una caja muy correcta, no le vemos ningún fallo y por lo tanto lo primero es que nos entre por la vista y su diseño sea de nuestro agrado. Es una caja de diseño más o menos discreto y sin colores o detalles chillones, pero no es una...

NZXT selbst beschreibt das Source 530 mit drei Worten: Simple. Affordable. Capable. Tatsächlich trifft diese Beschreibung ziemlich genau ins Schwarze. Das Gehäuse zeigt sich mit einer geradlinigen und klaren Optik, es bietet ein gutes...
