NZXT Phantom 630 or NZXT Phantom 530?

Debating on which one to get, basically I want really good cable management capability. Anyone know which one gives really good cable management? I tend to be leading towards the 630 at the moment because of the 10 fan connectors in it which would be really handy and convenient, however the price seems to be a bit high, But I do have $217 for it. But I was planning on getting a couple super duper quiet fans to add on once I buy it, so yeah :C Any help or suggestions would be great. Thanks in advance! :D

Cases are really just personal preference.

The define R4 is the best IMO

The Phantom 530 has the Fan controller as well on the back. Only has 1 SSD bracket behind the motherboard. The P530 is aimed more for a budget and the "True" Successor to the Original Phantom. I was debating between these two cases as well as the Corsair 750D but the guys on this forum convinced me to go with the 750D for the nice window, fancy SSD brackets, and Since I'm watercooling my setup the 750D offers plenty of space and gives me the ability to show off what I've created with that fancy window.

The 750D looks like an incredible case, however it is much to expensive for me where I live coming in at $209 :C So I guess that is a no go :C

I'd go with the 530 based on aesthetics.

I have not had any hands on with either of the cases but youtube videos show that the 630 seems to have better cable management, but then I heard the only difference between them is size and that is it, so I am really confused, just wanting to know which one has better cable management and that is it :D thanks for the suggestion though!

At least in the USA, The Phantom 630 is equal or some places more expensive than the Corsair 750D on the websites I've been looking at. What is the pricing for where you're from?

I think the 530 may have a better standing at cable management since its a more updated rig by NZXT (assuming its better because of that) and it has a wider frame than the 630.

630 is $189

530 is $169

I thought the 630 was the most recent, I have very little knowledge in this area when it comes to cases. Just began to hate the LEDs on my case now, much to annoying as I sleep. if 530 does have better cable management, I would be more than happy to buy it as it is cheaper! :D

The Phantom 530 came after the Phantom 630. P530 was released this past September. I watch reviews on youtube before finalizing my order. I watch Newegg's overviews and Hardware Canucks for Case reviews.

Cable management seems to be greatly improved from the 410 to the 530 and the 410 is still extremely good with cable management from my own experience having the case. Plus the 630 looks too stretched out for the Phantom look anyways.

Go with the 530, although arc midi r2 is one hell of a case. I dont really care for that spacy look.

I'm very likely going with the Phantom 630 in my next build. As far as I have been able to piece together, it should be very quiet and have great airflow thanks to the three included 200mm fans. Also, after using Antec cases in my three previous builds (P150, P182 and P193) I want to get something a bit flashier for a change.
