NZXT Phantom 630 Review
Up Close: Stripped
Finding it hard not to call this section "In the Nip" it's none the less essential to see what a case looks like "au-natural". What better way to get an idea of the build quality is there than to strip away all the extraneous knobs and excrescences and look at the bare metal chassis. Quality wise the 630 doesn't disappoint. The finish is good and the riveting and folding of the sheet steel is well done, nothing here to cut your knuckles on.
The actual stripping of the case is achieved by pulling off the roof and the front plastic sections, both of which are held on by strong plastic lugs. Once popped off we get a chance to look more closely at the roof and front fan mounting areas, along with the vast selection of fan mounting points and radiator options, the roof area alone is able to accept a slim 120.3 or a thicker 140.2 radiator with the commensurate sized fan mounted up in the roof section. Given a radiator of slim enough proportions it's entirely possible to set up a push pull configuration up here.
With the front of the case removed it's also possible to get a better look at the options for cooling and radiator mounting in this area. It's also worth noting that when you remove the plastic panels the mounts for both front switch and I/O areas remain attached to the chassis, so no having to feed cables through holes every time you pop the lid off.
