The Bottom and Rear Panels

The bottom panel of the NZXT Phantom 530 has two air filters, one for the power supply fan and another for the optional bottom fans. These filters can be removed from the rear and front panels, respectively, so you will not need to lift the case to reach them.

The rear panel and the interior of the NZXT Phantom 530 are painted with the same color as the exterior of the case: red, black, or white, depending on the model you buy.

This case comes with eight expansion slots (with vented covers), allowing you to install up to four video cards (as long as your motherboard supports four video cards, of course). (Tower cases usually have seven expansion slots.)

There is one LED that lights the expansion slots and another that lights the motherboard’s rear panel, making it easier for you to install and remove cables. You can turn these LEDs on or off through a button located at the top panel.

On the NZXT Phantom 530, the power supply is installed at the bottom of the case.

The product comes with a 140 mm fan installed on its rear panel (no technical specifications are provided), and you can move it up or down. This fan can be replaced with a 120 mm model, which means that you can replace it with a 120 mm or a 140 mm radiator.

The case also has two hole for hoses of liquid cooling solutions, protected with rubber covers.

The air filter for the power supply fan is accessible through the rear panel, so you do not need to lift the case whenever you want to clean it.
