Testing:

Once I had everything in its place and ready to go I fired this beast up.

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! It is a must have now-a-days for any build. This makes it really easy when you need to connect or disconnect anything without having to fuss around for a flashlight.

Conclusion:

All in all, I think this case is pretty decent. There is a lot of thought put into the modular design that can be utilized by anyone. Whether you're looking for an air cooled case, or you're planning on running a wild, water cooling setup this case can fit your needs. Novices and hardcore enthusiasts alike will find that this case makes their build process smooth and easy.

Rear LEDsThe material quality was very good and I was unable to find any fault in the workmanship no matter how hard I looked. The steel and plastic construction is sturdy and has the feel it will hold up to multiple builds. Definitely a case to last!

I love when cases come with their own fan controller. It definitely saves some time and money, and you don’t have to worry about a different controller, 'not looking right with the case'.

One drawback was the absence of an ATX 8-Pin, I felt with all the other additions and features this would be a no-brainer.

The installation went very smooth. It was only helped by NZXT's straight forward design. It didn’t take very long from start to finish.  There was plenty of room to maneuver in the case, and NZXT furnished many options for routing. NZXT could only make it easier by sending someone to install everything for me. I ran into no snags and everything went smooth. A novice builder that can read instructions should have no issues getting this case up and running in one go.

I felt the value of this case was solid. With a price tag of 179$*, this case is a good deal. The quality and modularity you get from this case is definitely worth what you pay for it. It may not be as flashy as its older brother, the Phantom 820, but it definitely makes up by being very flexible.

Overall, I'm happy with the Phantom 630. It met my expectations and functions great. It has a great look and can be configured to suit anyone's needs now or in the future.
