NZXT Source 530 Review
Up Close: Interior Rear, Roof and Reverse
Being as this is a full tower case we get no less than 8 PCI slts to play with, each one is vented and held in place by a thumb bolt. Rear exhaust ventilation is provided by a pair of 120mm fans set on extract. A bit of a difference from the Phantom 530 which has a 140mm in the rear position and nothing up in the roof.
There's acres of room up in the roof, certainly enough for a 360 rad or even a 280, we'll come to the thicknesses when we get to the build section of the review.
Round the back we're also delighted to see the feature count remain high, with a good 25mm of space for cable management and 24 cable tie points (we think there are 24, there's actually so many we kept losing count). Not only are they plentiful but they're actually in the right places, note the line of tie points running up the right hand side of the case for routing the 8 pin CPU power cable.
The cable management options around the rear multi point fan hub and the stealth 2.5" drive mount are also much appreciated, along with the additional row of tie points running up the left as well as the right side of the main management holes. Shame about the lack of grommets but I guess the accountant had to draw the line somewhere.
