The chassis can fit up to an XL-ATX motherboard on a smart split-level motherboard tray allowing for incredibly neat cable management. USB 3.0/2.0 along with an integrated card reader, illuminated I/O panel and dust filter also complete the case.

With the unmistakable appearance, the NZXT 630 High Performance Modular Full Tower Chassis keeps the timeless, striking visuals as previous series of the case with a next generation design. The chassis is crafted out of steel and plastic in 3 popular colours - Matte black, White and Gunmetal.

The Phantom 630 is designed to fully satisfy the demands of those who take computing seriously. The grand size of the case enables users to fit up to an XL-ATX motherboard on a smart split-level motherboard tray which allows the user to mount dual SSDs securely and have incredibly neat cable management. The Fully modular internal drive bays allows you to customise the Phantom 630's internal layout to suite your needs giving the space required for more extreme cooling. The case enables the user to install simultaneous support for a 3x120 radiator, a 2x120 radiator and all hard drive bays.

Look another Switch Case...... First NZXT made the Switch 810, then NZXT made the Switch 810 Special edition with different colors, Next NZXT made the Phantom 820, Now NZXT is making the Phantom 630.

All the same case with different plastic parts! Way to keep it original guys. Don't get me wrong I own the 810 however..... but come on guys..... lets change it up a little bit. How about a switch with less plastic :) for the older crowd

So a smaller Phantom 820 with only 1 fan controller channel as opposed to 4 and no internal LED lights + controller... haven't they released this already (Phantom 410)? :P

The 410 still looks much more attractive to be quite honest and alot cheaper too! I do not see the significance in this case. Actually I wouldn't mind seeing a HTPC Phantom.

Interesting commentary thus far. The company decided to update our most popular chassis to use today's standards for air/watercooling, drive mounting, fan mounting, as well as utilizing some of the more non-standard features in cases like dual radiator support, rear-I/O LED lighting, new non-plastic ODD tooless latches, Motherboard tray SSD mounting, etc.

I think the designers did a great job updating the Phantom to use a lot of today's standards and incorporate the company's unique approaches. Not every chassis is going to appeal to everyone, of course. That's why this industry is so much fun, we have TONS of choices! :)

needs less phantom .... nice looking case but how many Phantoms does one need ?
Also gjt on my support ticket >_> :shadedshu
I had to install a splinter on my rear ports to get my headset to work not a huge issue because the headset has a amp

I would love to see some air/water tight covers for the side and top panel having such a massive open vent is un nerving it also has a negative effect on airflow in my admittedly old gamma
if there was some removable protective covers for the top and side vents I would buy this but with 4 legged critters and a desk that usually has at least 2 cold drinks on it within short-circuit distance of the case hmm ....

Hey, does the 630 still support thick 60mm radiators at the top if we chose to use a 360 rad. I know if you do that with a Switch 810 it kind of occupies the top most 5.25" bay.

Picture directly from NZXT site. I like how the radiator is in the front like that and move that top hard drive bay down to get the gab there for the tubing! This might be my next case instead of the Switch 810.

So its just downsized Phanton 820.
Exactly.

I don't see how this is labeled as a Full Tower? I have been hearing many people wanting a mid-tower sized Phantom, so Nzxt released the Ph410. So whats with this new 630? :wtf: It looks to be a spiced up version of the 410, but with less compatibility features of the 820.



@ MxPhenom 216:

I agree, that is a sweet looking loop in this case. ;)

So, can it take those 34cm length professional video cards?? Always hard to find a good case for those monsters.

its downsized.... but not by much, it must be more of the options that denote the price cut...

820...
235mm (W) x 650mm (H) x 612mm (D)


630...
245mm w x 627mm h x 600mm d

I tend to have positive answer on this. It's a cheap case with ultra tower capabilities. I expect the price to be ~$170. Seems that there are a lot of plus over the 410, which should be at least ~$75 cheaper. Even though, still the 410 is going to be a better choice for a case, and I have one.

PS. Oh yes, why is this not named Phantom 615?

This is actually a replacement for the now dated Phantom. The Phantom is about 3 years old now, things have changed in the community and the industry. Out with the old, in with the new.

The original Phantom retailed at 139.99, this is at 179.99 respectively, with more/better features. More/better folks, more/better.

And to radrok, your trap card would force this case right here to be about 400 bucks. Using aluminum with this design would cost a fortune. We can either keep our identity, or we can overcharge for aluminum, or we can just make plain black boxes and then be compared to other mfg's who do the same. So, to your trap card, I say.... wait... what beats a trap card? lol

NZXT Panels

The NZXT is advertised with different front and top panels. Are these both correct? Is one superseded? Have they used the wrong image?

Example 1:

http://www.scorptec.com.au/computer/48922-csnzp630gm?gclid=CNHyxIjm2LcCFUFepQodjjUAKw


Example 2:

http://www.myshopping.com.au/ZM--1228044236_NZXT_Phantom_630_Gunmetal_CSNZP630GM

If you scroll down through the last of these you will various designs for the 630 in various colours. So which design is correct. I don't want to order the wrong thing. Sigh, the trials of online shopping.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Cheers.
