Inside the NZXT Phantom 530

Both panels are attached to the chassis using black metallic thumbscrews. The right panel is solid, but the left one has a big transparent window and room for a 140 mm fan, as you can see in Figure 14.

The motherboard tray has a huge cutout for you to access the backplate of the CPU coolers without having to remove the motherboard from the case, several holes (four of them with rubber covers) for you to route cables behind it, and several clips for you to fasten cables using cable ties. Another highlight of the case is the presence of a 1” (27 mm) clearance between the motherboard tray and the right-side panel, allowing you to store thick cables behind the motherboard tray. The NZXT Phantom 530 supports E-ATX motherboards.

In Figure 14, we get another overall look inside the case. Notice how expansion cards are fastened using black metallic thumbscrews. The NZXT Phantom 530 supports video cards up to 12.8” (325 mm) long on its default configuration or up to 18.1” (460 mm) long if you remove the hard drive cage that is in front of the place where you want to install the video card. You can install CPU coolers up to 7.5” (190 mm) tall.
