NZXT Phantom 630 review

At the top side we spot quite a few things, so let's zoom in a little and focus on that area.
To the rear we spot one huge 200mm fan located under the mesh/grill, which can be regulated with the internal fan controller. There is space to mount another fan or hey .. your liquid cooling solution of course. NZXT prepped screw holes for your radiators, ensuring great compatibility with most sizes of radiators and fans, even 140/280mm wide NZXT Kraken coolers. Which seem to become a trending product series as of lately.
At the other side on top, we can see that fan controller. You'll have access to three fan configurations allowing them to spin at your preferred low, medium of high RPM. This is a great feature and I am glad it wasn't removed as its simply a more expensive thing to add to a PC chassis.
The controller allows you to connect up-to 30 watts of fans and has LED indicators that gets brighter on high speeds and dimmer for low settings. Here you will also find power & reset buttons alongside a switch to turn off the rear LED light.
On the opposing side we can see the frontpanel I/O functionality, missing here is eSATA, which slowly seems to become a thing of the past in preference of USB 3.0. You do get two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 connectors. This has been trimmed down from the Phantom 820 which has a total of six connectors. Located here are the microphone and audio jacks as well.
Looking at the backside we got impressed. At the rear of the Phantom 630 we see openings for the I/O panel, power supply and nine expansion slots. Let me show you that a tad better though.
Nearby to the I/O panel opening is a 140 mm exhaust fan (which can be moved upwards and downwards). There are 120mm and 140mm mounts here. Fairly identical to most modern enthusiast cases, the power supply is located at the bottom compartment. That top rear fan BTW is movable, so you can position it just right for optimal cooling conditions.
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.
