NZXT Phantom 630 Modular Case
NZXT released the latest iteration in the Phantom series of chassis, the Phantom 630, a full tower case featuring modular components.
The original Phantom chassis from their 'crafted' series of PC cases we were impressed. And really, it's hard to not be impressed by any of NZXT's chassis but that one was something totally new and refreshing. As such I was excited to hear about the new Phantom 630 release. A bit of a warning is advised though, the Phantom 630 seems to be a trimmed down version of that magnificent Phantom 820.
NZXT has been around for years, building an ongoing reputation with mostly their controversial chassis designs. It all really started with the Guardian chassis years ago and have ever since put numerous chassis designs out on the market. Rising from the ashes of their crafted series is the Phantom 630 full tower chassis, absolutely impressive 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 digital fan controller connected to a plethora of pre-equipped fans?
We have a changing enthusiast PC landscape with features like backplate cut-outs, many water cooling options and digital fan controller. The chassis lends a lot of its looks to the Phantom 820, a similar looking chassis with smooth edges and that distinct Phantom front panel design.
The NZXT Phantom 630 is a full tower chassis with plenty of room for just about anything you'd like to install in there. These units are available in black, white, and two tone gunmetal grey/black. The Phantom 630 has been designed with rather shiny, smooth contours and feels stealthy really. Next to that, the Phantom comes with performance cooling advantages with four fans installed, extra fan options and options for dual radiator liquid cooling support. It comes equipped with one big low-RPM 140mm and three even bigger 200mm fans, factory installed. Heck it even has an SD card reader built in.
On the top of the chassis you'll stumble into 2x USB 3.0, 2x USB 2.0 and audio jack. But there's more, an original 5.25" screw-less system, vast space to encompass eight hard drives, and four 5.25” bays. As stated, NZXT has prepped three versions of the product, one colored white, one gunmetal grey and the other one black. They all have started shipping and will have price tags of roughly 180 EUR or just under 200 USD.
Small warning, NZXT shipped out a white edition of the chassis, and although that is absolutely gorgeous to see, it's also a pain in the proverbial you know what to photograph in our tidy white photo studio. So I'll start by saying that the photo's won't do the chassis any real justice. But have a peek anyway, head on over to the next page where we'll start up the review.
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 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.
