Up Close:  Interior Overview and Drive bays

The interior of the Source 530 is pretty cavernous, even with a full modular rack of 6HDDs.  There's a large CPU cut out, as well as plenty of cable management holes.  Sadly they're not grommeted as they are with the Phantom 530, but let's remember the £25 price difference shall we.

The 530 affords you 3x5.25" bays, each of which is equipped with a tool free  ratchet down system, and as NZXT have had the forethought not to put a roof in the upper most drive bay, and to keep all the front I/O wires out the way there's plenty of room to extend a 360 rad into this space with no modding required.

We covered the near infinite permutations of the 3 rack drive bay system when we reviewed the Phantom 530 a few Months back.  Suffice to say that the Source 530 has exactly the same quality bays with exactly the same degree of flexible configuration.  Even the 3 bay drive retains it's 120mm vary-angle fan mount.

Six cushioned supports are in place for even the largest of PSUs to rest on, with additional space anterior of them for either 2x120mm fans or a 240mm rad.  If you wish to utilise this space you will of course have to remove some of the lower HDD racks

A full tower case from NZXT for just 80. The price is low, but what about the features?

pretty decent case for a super tight full tower budget build, shame about the lack of grommets though

Probably going to be one of the more popular "beginners" case for watercooling.
