    Reviews - NZXT Phantom 630

    Cheaper than the Phantom 820 but every bit as potent?

    Seems a bit odd to compare this, a £160 case, to cases costing less than a third of the price. You'd expect it to perform well against most of those cases.
    The fragile drive trays are deal breaker for that money too...

    The cost is still a tad to high I think. but for enthusiasts I believe that this ideally suited. nice cable management, nice look.

    Sweet looking case, but far too expensive imo.

    I think at 160 its too much, but with it popping up for 130 at times its a reasonable buy for the case design and its features. Of course, the quality might not be up there with Corsair and the like, but its still a great case IMO

    Good looking case but too much plastics. I they can do away with most plastics. Make it a case with 3x120 front intake fans, remove the side panel fan and put a cast 5mm-10mm acrylic panel (the thickness blocks noise pretty well) make sure the top has the ability to accept 3x140mm fans and bottom 2x140mm fans. Have 3 motherboard tray drive mounts and voila, I'd pay $250 for this kind of a case. Here in Canada this case goes for 175 and as high as 195 and I'd rather pass all of their cases and get the giant Corsair Obsidian 900D due out next week or SS FT02W Black with USB 3.0!

    If I were to go for a phantom case, it'd have to be the 410 at ~£90.. Whilst it's not as feature packed as the 630, it's still a good case, and you're not paying extra to be able to hide your SSDs. £160 is WAY too rich for my blood.
