Checking the goods - Phantom 630 ...
So then, with a touch of innovation, NZXT launches the Phantom 630 Full / Ultra Tower. A PC chassis with space, good looks and great features. This product goes by the name of Phantom, indicating something ghost like, which applies. The design is unusual, a little stealthy even. Something you'd not expect from a chassis. Over the next few pages we'll look closely at the product with the help of a photo-shoot.
Internally there will be plenty of space for a good number of hard disks and/or solid state drives. Everything can be installed tool-less-ly. Another feature that will strike you as familiar is of course the motherboard tray with a cut-out, intended to allow coolers with back plates to be easily mounted. Once you see that, you'll also notice how much cable space there is behind the actual motherboard tray for cable routing. Many grommet holes cover everything up. Yeah, you can make a dandy nice and clean looking PC with the chassis alright.
Let's have a peek at some features courtesy of NZXT.

The chassis measures a whopping 245mm (W) x 627mm (H) x 600mm (D) and weights 12kg (!), considering it is made of solid steel that makes sense. All that space allows for even the biggest motherboards to be installed, supported form factors are XL-ATX, ATX, MICRO-ATX, Mini-ITX.
On top of the chassis you'll notice a 4-channel digital fan controller, and some fans are pre equipped for you including one 140mm and three 200mm fans for the high airflow and low noise.

Naturally, all other features you expect from a high performance NZXT chassis are in.
The all stealthy looking NZXT Phantom 630 is available in three colors types
We review the NZXT Phantom 630 Full tower PC chassis. Definitely gorgeous in many ways as the design is prolonging in what we have seen in the past year or two when NZXT released their first phantom chassis.
NZXT Phantom 820 review
We test and review the NZXT Phantom 820. Absolutely stunning in many ways as the design is simply great, the features are grand and then the extras still need to kick in. What about a fan controller connected to a plethora of pre-equipped fans
NZXT Phantom review
We review the NZXT Phantom. Absolutely stunning in many ways as the design is simply great, the features are grand and then the extras still need to kick in. What about a 5-fold fan controller connected to a plethora of pre-equipped fans? Yep, a fan controller in the chassis, something we have been requesting for years. The NZXT Phantom is a full tower case with an excess of room for just about anything you'd like to install in there.
