Introduction:

Today I will be taking a look at another Phantom case by NZXT.  These guys have been in the game for a while, and their name is associated with many high quality products.  Not only do they build great cases, but they offer a wide range of products including cooling components, fans and controllers, power supplies, and a variety of aesthetic components that set off any project.  You can view all their products here.

The case I am reviewing is the Phantom 630.  It is a new addition to the crafted series that was debuted at CES 2013.

The Phantom 630 is a full tower case that consists of steel and plastic construction. It can support a variety of motherboard designs and seems to be built with versatility in mind. There are a lot of hard drive and cooling configurations to suit even the most demanding rigs. Let's dive right in and get a look and this beauty!

 

First Look:

I have reviewed the Phantom 820 case recently, so I'm looking forward to seeing some of the new design features the Phantom 630 has to offer.

The Phantom 630 arrived packaged in a sturdy cardboard box that was printed with full-color photograph quality graphics. The case gives you a good angled view, as well as, inside looks and general specs of the case.  Inside, the case was secured by dense Styrofoam and wrapped in plastic to keep any particulates out. The side window also had film on both sides for added protection.

After removing all the packaging, I was greeted with a familiar Phantom design. I found the case as great looking as its predecessors. On the outside this case closely resembles the Phantom 820.  This case definitely fits in with the crafted series.

I was pleased to see plenty of venting as is customary with Phantom case designs. This case sports a nice viewing window on the left side for showing off your hardware. The front also has a door that keeps four 5.25" bays hidden until you are ready to access them. There is also a foot system the help bring in air to the bottom. This case will make a bold statement in anyone's station!

On the inside, the Phantom 630 definitely has some design differences from the Phantom 820. The Phantom 630 definitely has more modularity built in to help with many types of configurations.
