NZXT Announces H630 Ultra-Tower Chassis

The newest premium chassis from NZXT is now ready to see the light of day! After the futuristic variants of the Phantom series and feature-rich Switch and Source lines, NZXT is introducing the H630, which combines the incredible functionality found in other NZXT cases with silence. It offers loads of space for motherboards of up to XL-ATX size, multiple radiator support and up to two 200 mm fans in the front. To guarantee a silent computing experience, the NZXT H630 also features generous use of sound dampening materials. This optimization along with the overall, understated design result in the professional look of the H630.

The NZXT H630 is available in two color choices - black or white. The clean straight lines with soft corners along with its excellent construction quality, gives the chassis its modern look & feel. This does not only hold true for the exterior but continues within the enclosure as well. Equipped with three separate hard drive bays, the H630 is incredibly flexible how many drives one may install, while offering the most space possible.

The advantage of such a flexibility lies in the ability to offer the best possible air flow and plenty of space for radiators. The impressive number of spaces for such cooling units includes 360 mm mountings in the top and the front, while you are also able to place a third unit of 280 mm size in the floor of the chassis. The NZXT H630 is alternatively also able to take two 200 mm cooling fans in the front of the chassis, one of which already comes pre-installed out of the box.

Another pre-installed 140 mm variant in the rear of the chassis aids in pushing out hot air out of the H630. Numerous further fan openings ensure that one can maximize the cooling potential of the chassis while keeping noise at a minimum. This is achieved by an ingenious design to allow for air flow, but also the use of solid side and front panels. Slim air vents on the edges of the chassis give way to fresh air, while encapsulating any noise generated from within the system.

The NZXT H630 is a modern, timeless Ultra-Tower with a well rounded I/O panel consisting of two USB 2.0 and a pair of USB 3.0 connectors, along with the usual audio connectivity. On top of these, NZXT has also included an SDXC capable card reader.

The NZXT H630 Ultra-Tower chassis will be available at the end of June, for a price of £129.05 exclusively at OCUK in the colors mat black and white. You can find the Overclockers UK - Special to the NZXT H630 here: (black, white).

Waita actually skip over my comments with some good old marketing blurb :toast: if you really want to be taken seriously on here then you need to respond to people instead of sounding off like a robot, not impressed.
Funny, because I'm not in marketing, nor do I have any marketing experience. I gave it to you straight, but I'm not going to coo you into liking something. I'd much rather have the USB/Audio ports on the right side. Keeps the front and top clean, which were part of the aesthetic goals of the chassis. Our designers didn't base their design off of one person's nitpicks, they did it off of their own experiences. :toast:

DAMN IT!!!! I knew it, I knew it! I said to them, I said "people want the beverage holders!"

Did they listen? No. This is why I drink myself to sleep at night.

I blurbed? ROFL. No, I didn't feel your commentary was constructive in any way, and I gave you a professional response. There were no marketing frills in my response to you. :cry:

NdMk... no reason to blow it out of proportion. Talk constructively and perhaps you'll receive a response more to your liking. As far as the USB ports on the side doesn't bother me personally. Its more about the location of your desktop than a design flaw IMHO...

Agreed:D. Also the placement of the USB ports on the upper right side is obviously to dodge the 200mm fans. Mechanically and aesthetically it's a well thought out design.

Take the interior of this, and then put it in the NZXT Phantom Full Enthusiast. Then you'll get me to buy your awesome steel case all over again!

I'd only realistically consider those if case makers would offer separately sold (spare) side-panels... or if I'd want to mod cheap-but-well-built-cases.

I just hope this allows for the NXZT Phantom 820 to become a little cheaper.. I love that case and the colour options, but, 250 bones is too much..

It wont change the Phantom 820. Just get the Phantom 630.

Yeah, I was afraid of that.

I am looking to getting a tower that supports an E-ATX MB (Mainly because I want there to be a lot of space between GPUs), though. And I don't think the 630 supports that. Or does it?

A close second for a tower would be the Rosewill Blackhawk Ultra. Not as flashy as the 820, but it supports my big MB needs.

What do you mean space inbetween the GPUs? like the slots or between the GPUs and hard drive cages?

Because if your talking about the slots on the motherboard, just got to have a motherboard that has the right layout, so the GPUs have some space between them.

The current MB I have right now is an Asrock Z77 extreme 4. It does support CFX, but putting the doing will cause them to be extremely close to each other -- especially since my Vapor X card is actually 2.5 slots. I just want to have one that actually has an open PCI express slot for even more space and flow between the two cards. I will need a longer bridge, of course.

Well then that's motherboard choice, not case.

Like on this board, put it in the first and 3rd slot and there will be some space.

ASUS Maximus V EXTREME Intel Motherboard - Newegg....

And there will be space with your extreme 4, but only about half an inch. Which is sufficient enough, seeing how some people have their cards literally
touching.

And the Phantom 630 does support E-ATX as those boards are really only ATX boards with a little bit more to them. They don't have different mounting wholes. The Phantom 630 supports XL-ATX as well so.

I agree, even with my 680 TOP there is plenty of room for a pair in the 1st and 3rd slots!

I should clarify, 1st and 3rd red slots;) I actually have access to the first black PCIe slot as well.

Ahhhh, okay.

For some reason I confused the 630 with the original Phantom (which I am using right now, the mid tower version).

Thanks!

My heart is still very much on the 820, but that 630 is a dandy deal.

Yeah, the original Phantom is over 3 years old now. The industry and buyer expectations have changed since then, and thankfully so has the design team we have. Retell (Rob), our Product Manager, spends a lot of time on forums reading feedback, and he had a heavy hand in designing the H630.

So, the Phantom 820 was requested by a lot of people who wanted a Phantom with similar features to the Switch 810. The Phantom 630 is a bit smaller, yet wider, with more improved features that were developed after the 820's release.

The H630 is actually a successor to the H2 chassis, which was pretty okay for its time, but the amount of positive feedback on the H630 has been tremendous so far. I think it's priced extremely competitively given the amount of features it has.
