Inside the H630

You will find the hardware in one of the drive bays near the bottom, and you can also see the wiring has been bagged for shipping. What is tougher to understand is the size of this chassis and just what sort of room you are playing with in here.

The pair of 5.25" bays at the top of the chassis are both equipped with these heavy duty, tool-free latches. There is no way to screw in the drives for backup, but these are super solid when clamped into the drive, and there is no real need for screws anyways.

The entire leftover area is then dedicated to mass storage. Here the drive rack is broke into three sections, two with three trays and one with only two. On the left of them here, you can also see the adjustable fan brackets that are offered.

If you want to, you can remove, rearrange and leave just what you need. This allows access to the front for water cooling. You can also remove the steel plate that says NZXT at the bottom of the case to allow even more room, if needed.

The motherboard tray offers a huge hole to gain access for coolers, and around it are plenty of tie points and management holes that you can even think to use. The tray comes with all the standoff set for ATX, but this can house quite a few other sizes as well.

On the floor you have six pads to hold power supplies up off the floor. This way it supports both short and long PSUs. The floor is also well ventilated, and in front of the PSU you can see one of the optional holes for a fan.

The back of the chassis there is the second fan, this time a 140mm version. Below the fan you can see that hex head screws are what holds in the covers and is what will lock you cards into these nine slots.

You can see NZXT does do some of the management if you wish to use it, and they do show the easiest route to take. This also shows off the depth back here with is 30mm at minimum. There truly is room for anything you think to need to power your build.

Moving in a bit closer you can now pick out the NZXT Grid without the external cover at top left. This will allow you to put 10 fans on this hub from one power source. Across the bottom there is a pair of 2.5" drive racks. This will allow you to house some storage or SSDs back here.

I like that all of the wiring is black, but there is a lot of it. You get the Native USB 3.0 and a pair of USB 2.0 connections, the front panel lighting and button connections, and a super long HD Audio cable to be sure to reach the port on any motherboard with ease.
