Summary: NZXT is clearly trying to redefine the H-series of cases with the new H630. Gone is the door and the plastic top cover. NZXT has instead taken metal for the front and top covers, which really takes the overall build quality of the series to the next level. All this makes the chassis heavy but gives it something other cases do not have. NTXT has also only equipped the chassis with two external bays to allow for a total of nine hard drives to be installed.
Pros: Well-engineered interior, Plenty of space for hard drives, Metal front and top panels, SD card reader, Solid panels with sound dampening everywhere result in good sound encapsulation, LED light in the back of the chassis, Excellent ODD locking mechanism, One 200 mm and a single 140 mm fan right out of the box, Plenty of screws and zip ties included, Dust filters on intake areas, Single 2.5" slot behind the motherboard tray, Removable HDD cages, Loads of space for radi...
Cons: Heavy, Flimsy hard drive trays, Fan PCB for eight fans means you have to watch the overall power draw for high-end applications, No HPTX support, No 3.5" drive bay, Only two 5.25" bays, SD card reader takes two USB 2.0 connectors (two-row motherboard header of which one row is filled)
Summary: If you are looking for a case with nine expansion slots, ample internal space, sturdy construction, and sound dampening materials on its panels, the NZXT H630 is a terrific choice. With a price tag of USD 150, we think this case provides an outstanding cost/benefit ratio for what it has to offer.
Excerpt: After a very stressful week at CES 2013, I came home and saw I had a few new cases in the kitchen from deliveries while I was gone. In that group was the Phantom 630 chassis from NZXT, and I thought it best to move them all to the basement to get them out of my way for that time, and after a good night's sleep I could get back into doing more reviews since my photo booth is down there.
Conclusion: NZXT’s H630 is primarily designed to be a low-noise option, whilst accommodating flagship products from the bigger form factors like XL-ATX and E-ATX. We are pleased to report that this case easily attains both these attributes. In our testing the noise levels were kept to an absolute minimum thanks to the thick, closed off panels and high-density noise damping material within.
Pros: + Minimalist aesthetics, + Very quiet, + Great build quality, + Superb for cable management, + Plenty of storage options, + Support for different sized radiators, + XL-ATX and E-ATX compatible, + Rear I/O LED lighting
Excerpt: Amerikanske NZXT har vært på en formidabel reise når det gjelder kabinettutvikling, og det første kabinettet fra selskapet gjorde alt annet enn et godt inntrykk . Siden det første steget inn på det europeiske markedet har det skjedd litt, og gradvis har NZXT kommet med mer og mer spennende kabinetter.
Summary: Im folgenden Review befassen wir uns mit dem H630 aus dem Hause NZXT. NZXT beschreibt das H630 kurz und knapp mit drei Worten: „Clean. Modern. Silent.“. Das schlicht und einfach gestaltete Gehäuse soll es Enthusiasten ermöglichen gut gekühlte Hochleistungssysteme zu realisieren, die obendrein nahezu unhörbar sein sollen. Neben XL-ATX-Mainboards soll auch problemlos eine ausgewachsene Wasserkühlung im NZXT H630 untergebracht werden können.
Pros: Design, Voluminöser und modularer Innenraum, Kühlsystem bzw. Kühlungsmöglichkeiten, Werkzeuglose Befestigungssysteme, Zahlreiche Gimmicks, Platz für ausgewachsene Wasserkühlung, Schalldämmung, Kabelmanagementsystem, Hochwertige Verarbeitung
