Specifications, Availability and Pricing
While we covered the fact that the H630 is an ultra-tower, it is the 245mm wide, 547mm in height and 567mm in depth - which is why this chassis is classified so high. This chassis does also come in two color options. You can get one in Glossy White, or you can get the model we are looking at, the Matte Black version. Externally, there really isn't a whole lot offered as far as style. In fact, aside from a few angles where the front bezel meets the top of the chassis, there really isn't much more to see than vast expanses of plastic and steel all with a matte, or slightly flat finish. The front bezel is made of plastic, is backed with very dense sound absorbing foam, and simply offers two removable 5.25" bay covers and at the very bottom NZXT applied their case badge. On the sides of the bezel along with the sides of the top panel, there are slots with mesh in them to allow for the chassis ventilation, but both door panels are completely solid and flat, but are also backed with the same dense foam the bezel has.
Inside the chassis there is a lot going on, and I mean a lot. In the front, you have room for two 200mm fans, and one is supplied in there from NZXT. You can optionally install a pair of 140mm fans or up to three 120mm fans, not including the optional room for radiators. The rack assembly here holds the two 5.25" devices with tool-free latches. Below those you will find a three section rack of eight 3.5" or 2/5" storage drive trays. The nice fact about these, if you want to leave them in, they offer a pair of 140mm or 120mm fans in the angle adjustable brackets on the left of the drive bays. If you want to water cool, all of these bays and the support tray are removable. The top of the chassis offers the same fan support as the front, and is set a few inches above the motherboard for maximum clearance there.
The motherboard tray can house anything from Mini-ITX on up to XL-ATX and EATX motherboards, has 18 places to tie down wiring, offers 11 various sized holes for routing the wires, and hidden on the back is a pair of 2.5" drive trays and essentially the NZXT Grid fan hub. The floor of the chassis will house any length power supply with ease, but you also have the option for fans and radiators. In this location you can also use two 120mm or two 140mm fans with or without a radiator. In the back you have room for a 120mm fan or a 140mm fan, the rear I/O panel, nine expansion slots, and it is well ventilated.
While you can find the much older Phantom 630 almost anywhere you look, I am still unable to find stock of the H630 anywhere I looked at the time of writing. What is funny is that the Phantom does offer slightly more on the outside as far as features go, but the H630 is larger overall, has a couple more tricks on the inside, and is said to retail cheaper than the Phantom version. From what I can tell, the MSRP of the new H630 is set at $149.99, and it should be filling shelves very soon. From what I have seen already, I can tell you; this is a lot of case for that kind of money.
