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).

XNine: I know my last question got lost in all the noise... can you tell me if the front intake fans have a removable filter?

Thanks for confirming. That's definitely good to hear - I've got a cat who sheds a lot of hair and I like having the intakes filtered. Sounds like this will definitely be a case worth checking out.
Any idea when review samples will be going to Anandtech and other sites?

Review samples should be already out in the mail to all of the usual reviewers, so I would expect to see reviews in the next week or so :)

I understand about animal hair. I'm going to school to be a vet tech, and the no matter how clean you get a room, you'll always find their hair or dander somewhere...even years down the line, lol.

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...
by: Fusionmech
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.
Apologies for coming across overly aggressive, I was pissed at the time :me>:slap:

None the less my issue wasn't regarding the physical position of them, more down to the fact that the ports are not slightly indented into the case and are instead flush with the outside of the case making locating them by feel alone and plugging in a device a pain in the ass.

That wasn't my only gripe with the front panel ports as when I swapped to my phantom my RAT mouse would not keep it's previously set DPI settings upon a reboot whereas it did with my previous Sniper and even does now on a £25 stop-gap OEM black case I'm currently using with a new build. Sames systems have been in all 3 cases with same components etc and it only ever did this when using the phantom.

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.
Will the 630 work with 200mm fans from other brands (CM, Rosewill, etc etc)? I know the first Phantom had issues with the size of the fans.

It should work with any modern 200mm fan, as we have updated our fans to current specs out there :-)
