A Look Inside
Getting inside the H630 the first thing that I noticed was that the side panel has a thick layer of sound-dampening material installed on it. Looking at the inside we can see that there is a lot going on here. NZXT has been one company that has really taken the time to design the inside of their cases with features people have asked for.
Starting at the front of the case the two 5.25-inch drive bays use a metal tool-less locking system. Moving down there are 3 hard drive cages that will support a total of 8 hard drives. All of these hard drive cages can be removed to make room for other components. They trays installed in these cages support both 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch drives.
Towards the front of the case on the bottom there is room for 2x 140/120mm fans. Moving over to the back of the case there is ventilation on the bottom of the case where your power supply will sit. There are also rubber bumpers that will lift your power supply off the bottom of the case for better airflow.
Since this case supports larger motherboards you actually have 9 expansion slots. Like always with NZXT these expansion slots use thumbscrews. There is a large ventilated section next to the expansion slots to help with cooling. Moving up we can see the 140mm exhaust fan, with the classic white fan blades.
The motherboard tray has quite a few cable routing holes on it to keep your cables out of the way of everything. 4 of the larger holes have the rubber inserts which make it so you won’t rip or tear your cables. There is an extremely large CPU cutout that will enable your to install aftermarket CPU coolers without having to remove your motherboard from the case. There are also mounts on two of the hard drive cages for 140/120mm fans.
Taking the second side panel of the case off we can see how the case is setup. The first thing that I noticed when taking a look at this side of the case is the centrally located fan hub. This makes it easy to connect all of your fans in one central location.
There are two SSD trays on the back of the motherboard. These give you even more storage options if you plan on filling this case up with drives. There are 4 large cable routing holes towards the top of the case. These will make it extremely easy to route all types of cables.
There is quite a lot of room behind the motherboard tray so you shouldn’t have any issues routing any of your cables. Of course there is a box of goodies inside the case that includes your user’s guide, mounting hardware and cable ties.
