NZXT Phantom 630 Modular Case Unveiled

By - Source: Techpowerup | B 13 comments

The latest addition to the NZXT series of gaming cases is the Phantom 630, a full tower case featuring modular components.

The NZXT Phantom 630 is constructed of both steel and plastic and is available in white, black and gun-metal color varieties. Nearly identical in appearance to the Phantom 820, the chassis features smooth edges and Phantom's distinct front panel design. On the top of the case, 2x USB 3.0, 2x USB 2.0 and audio jacks can be found. While the exterior of the Phantom 630 offers little innovation, don't judge a “case” by its “cover-panel”.

                                                     



The NZXT features fully modular internal drive bays , which allows users to not only interchange hard-drive cages, but also remove them. Once removed, the case can support graphics card up to 19 inches in length.

Furthermore, a split-Level motherboard tray improves cable management and also supports XL-ATX motherboards. The case also supports top and bottom mounted radiators concurrently. If water-cooling isn't your cup of tea, the case is equipped with a 30-watt 3-speed controller along with four fans; as well as support for multiple optional fans.

The NZXT Phantom 630 Full Tower Gaming Case will be available for $179.99. For more information, visit the NZXT product page.

    It looks okay, I'm not really impressed. I'm waiting for the 900D still.

    The interior is very nice. The exterior...I've seen better.

    Anandtech already has a test performed on it: http://www.anandtech.com/show/6681/nzxt-phantom-630-case-review-the-relentless-pursuit-of-perfection

    In short, the 630 is superior in thermal/noise performance compared to its slightly older and bigger Phantom 820 predecessor.

    They should add a routing hole with rubber grommet right underneath where a Micro ATX board would be too.

    Aesthetically, for me, nothing beats the beauty of the Fractal r3/r4.

    To me, Fractal Design cases is overrated.

    Seems a little overpriced...is it really, or am I just not familiar enough with case prices?

    Why not make it so you can remove each individual hard drive slot instead of a cage? Use slightly rubberized plastic and it will be silent at the same time.

    I really like the quality of NZXT's cases. They feel solid and well built. I used to like their case fans too, but when the 200mm fan of my sister's Phantom started sounding like a low-powered vacuum cleaner, I've lost a big chunk of my liking for them.

    The design is ok. Glad they put the USB ports on the top left side. I'll stick to my 600T :)

    I'm confused. How is this modular in a special way? Cases have allows you to remove Hard Drive cages for years. You can't even take out the motherboard tray for easy installation.
