Hello everyone, I've been looking at several different cases for my new build and I think I may go with the NZXT phantom 530. I like the fact that it has a fan controller, good air cooling, will fit everything easily, pretty reasonable price, has a side window, and I like the look of the case. Does anyone own this case and can provide me with some feedback? I've looked at a few reviews. I have also looked at the Define R4 (I'm worried about the air cooling in this case due to all of the noise dampening features as my PC usually gets hot and I need cooling), corsair 750D (this is a beautiful case but I don't need something like it because I have a pretty simple setup), midi II, 650D, etc.

If anyone is wondering what is going into the case: a 4670k, Asus Z-87 Plus mobo, 8 gb 1866 ram, 1 gpu (probably the 280x), 1 SSD, and possibly 1 mechanical drive later on, 5 corsair performance fans, a seasonic modular PSU, 8 GB ram, and an optical drive. So, as I mentioned nothing crazy and I will air cool the CPU.
