The Build and Finished Product
Since I have plans to install a small loop in this chassis, I went ahead and popped the top off the Phantom 630. You can see I needed to remove the 200mm fan already installed here, and both dust filters to do what I need to in here. What I really like is that the wiring is not attached to the top.
After a little bit of work, I now have my dual 120mm radiator hanging, and I am running the push/pull configuration since there was already room here for the extra fans.
Without opening the door to see the optical drive installed in the top bay, really nothing changes about the looks in the Phantom 630 from the front when it is completed.
Inside, there is a lot to discuss. The loop clears the motherboard with no issues there. The HDD racks are now out and this opens a lot of cooling potential otherwise blocked off. The finished product looks super clean, and it was relatively easy to do.
The back fills out nicely and again, no real issues to discuss. The dust cover went in pretty easy, the card lines up and installs fine, and the power supply is easy to install resting on the large feet placed on the floor.
As I mentioned, there is a ton of room back here. As clean as the front of the build looked, here is the reason why. It may look a bit all over the place, but if you take your time, and lots of cable ties, you will eventually get to a maintained and out of the way setup similar to this.
All sealed back up, the NZXT Phantom 630 doesn't look much different from this angle when completed either. If it weren't for the peek at the video card through the window, you really don't see much change.
When you do add the power to this chassis, you have to swing over to the right side to see the lights as you push the power button. Since the fan is set to the highest of three positions in this image, all three lights are lit under it. The bar on the right side denoted the PC has power, but I never did find anything flashing to denote the SSD was active.
There is a little button near the fan controller that will turn on a set of "tail lights" on this case. This is so that even if the room is dark, if you need to swap mice, or possibly need to rearrange your monitor inputs, with this pair of LEDs, it can be done with ease.
Since this is the side of the chassis that will likely be facing you when it is on the desk, you really don't see anything to say that the PC is running. In this image, the only give away to it actually running is the rear exhaust fan you can see through the window.
