Conclusion: The original Phantom full tower surprised everybody with its unique design, plenty of interior space, wealth of features and impressive airflow even out of the box especially since it was designed and manufactured by a relatively new player called NZXT.
Conclusion: The NZXT Phantom 630 has some great features that we hope to see in more future cases. The variety and modularity of its drive bays, coupled with the fan controller and super-handy fan hub, are what really won us over here.
Pros: Very solid build quality, given plastic-and-steel design, All-in-one fan controller, Hidden bays for SSDs, Rear port/slot illumination built into case
Summary: NZXT has done a remarkable job of stepping up their game over the course of the last year, and somehow the Phantom 630 feels like a pinnacle piece for this direction. Yes, it is technically below the Phantom 820 in the current line up, but is obviously a newer, fresher and far more versatile design.

23 April 2013
Conclusion: The NZXT Phantom 630 High Performance Modular Ultra Tower is one of the best cases on the current market. The features that it possesses are outstanding to say the least. I enjoyed checking this case out, and look forward to possibly modding it.

Cons: Kind of flimsy hdd/ssd trays, No dust filters on optical bay covers, No thumb screws on expansion slots, No 3.5″ external drive bay or conversion bracket
NZXT Phantom 630 Case Review: The Relentless Pursuit of Perfection
13 April 2013
Conclusion: I think it's important to note that NZXT's flagship Phantom 820 was only released about three months ago. I'm not quite sure how NZXT was able to hit the kind of turnaround time they did with the Phantom 630, but this new release effectively obsoletes the older, more expensive model.
Summary: The NZXT Phantom 630 Case is a full tower case that's loaded with style and features. It comes with many fans, removable dust filters, lots of drive bays, cable management, fan controller, I/O LED & USB3 ports. This is a perfect case for the enthusiast or anyone that need a spacious case.
Summary: The fan controller was really easy to use, and had lights indicating what level you were running at. Having one control for all the fans made it easy to set and forget, since that’s what most of us do I think. As I stated before, I think the rear LED is great!
Pros: Plenty of room, Easy routing and cable management, Rear Mounted SSD trays, Integrated fan controller, Modular design, Many tool-less connections, Bold look
Summary: Final Thoughts
As I said earlier I was a bit surprised to see NZXT release another Phantom case at CES. This release came only months after the
release. If you just look at the numbering at price you may think that the Phantom 630 is just a stipped down and cheaper version of the Phantom...
Pros: – Sleek design, – Room for up to 8 hard drives, – Lots of room inside & behind the motherboard tray, – Supports XLATX motherboards, – Easy installation, – 4 included fans, – Hard drive cages can be removed and reconfigured
Cons: – Still using the cheap hard drive cages, – Top routing holes are small for the CPU power cable
