It's slightly smaller than the gargantuan Phantom 630 we reviewed, but not by much; NZXT's "Ultra Tower" classification remains accurate, with the H630 measuring in at over 9.6" x 21.5" x 22.3". The case eliminates the fan meshes typically found in performance enclosures, uses large fans, and boasts a porous sound absorbing foam on the side panel.
As for the cooling system, the H630 ships with 1x200mm front intake and 1x140mm rear exhaust, but has room for an additional 1x200mm front intake, 2x200mm or 2x140mm or 3x120mm top fans, 2x140/120mm bottom fans, and 2x140/120mm HDD pivotal fans (similar to what's found in both the P630 and P820). The absence of side fans is intentional - a sacrifice made in exchange for a steel, non-mesh panel with uninterrupted sound absorbing foam.
The 2x200mm front fans are interesting, since the two slots could be instead fitted with a massive 360mm radiator (supports 240/280/360 in both the top and front slots). The front drive cages are modular and can be removed for these configurations, like the 630, and the two rear-side SSD mounts mean we still have room for drives somewhere. You'd really only need such a tremendous amount of space for an open loop cooling solution, but it definitely offers enthusiasts the option to build a rig that's incredibly quiet.
Sticking to cooling, the new enclosure supports full-length VGAs (up to 354mm, if you can find one that large) and effectively any CPU cooler on the market (up to 190mm in height). Dust filters are fitted to the front, bottom, and rear positions.
Front I/O offers somewhat standard 2x3.5mm audio, 2xUSB2.0, 2xUSB3.0, an SD card reader (SDHC/SDXC support), and standard switches.
Other than that, everything is very similar to what's found in the Phantom 630 chassis (since it's the same frame), so the biggest changes are in panel design and the radiator support. You still get nearly 30mm of cable management space, still have routing cut-outs, the large CPU cut-out, and most the other design features.
NZXT's H630 is available in black or white, offers a somewhat discrete aesthetic, and is marketed at $150. We'll be testing and benchmarking the case shortly.
