EXTERIOR & PANELS

Like most cases at this price-point, the Source 530 has a steel frame and a plastic front. The whole package weighs 9.2 kg or 20.2 and measures 50.7 x 23.5 x 51.1 cm or 20.0 x 9.3 x 20.1 inches (H x W x D). Its total volume is 60.9 Liters, above average for a modern ATX tower.


The top of the Source 530 has a raised section in the center for fans/radiators. While this makes the position stronger structurally, the contours are unsightly. Instead of fixed mounting holes, rails are offered so each fan's position can be tweaked. One of the two stock 120 mm fans is installed in the rearmost placement oriented to exhaust upward.


A second fan is secured to the back in a similar adjustable placement. Two white LEDs (not visible) are located at the top of the rear port cut-out and expansion slots to shine downward on the connectors.


The LEDs are powered on/off with a switch residing on the right/top side of the front bezel, sandwiched between the power and reset buttons.


At the bottom of the case, the power supply vent is composed of slits while the two 120 mm fan positions are completely open. Both sections are covered by removable dust filters lined with fairly fine mesh.


The side panels are between 0.9 and 1.0 mm thick and use a hinge design to grip the chassis.


Popping off the front panel allows access to the 5.25 inch bays, front fan mounts, and the removable dust filter covering the intakes. There are two 120/140 mm fan ports and an option for a single 200 mm fan.
