NZXT Phantom 530 or NZXT Phantom 630 ?

post #1 of 4

What is the difference between these two ?
post #2 of 4
The Phantom 530 and 630 share the same Phantom style, but the 630 is a significantly larger case, with 9 expansion slots and the ability to house XL-ATX motherboards. Due to the larger size it is more suitable for elaborate water-cooled builds.

The decision between the two will depend what your needs and objectives for your build are. The dimensions of the Phantom 630 are 245mm(W) x 627mm(H) x 600mm(D).

The Phantom 530 is 235mm x 572mm x 543mm. The 530 is by no means a small case, it is a full tower. However, the 630 could be classified as an "ultra tower". By virtue of its increased width, the 630 has slightly better cable management.

The cooling system of the Phantom 530 is as follows:-

Front 2x140mm/ 120mm or 1x200mm
(1 x 200mm included)
Rear 1x140mm (included) / 120mm
Bottom 2x120mm
Side 1x140mm
Top 2x200mm/ 140mm or 3x120mm
Interior 1x120mm/140mm


And the Phantom 630:-

Front 1 x 200 or 2 x 140mm( 1 x 200mm included ) 800rpm
Top 2 x 200 or 2 x 140 or 3 x 120mm ( 1 x 200mm included) 800rpm
Side 1 x 200mm (Included) 800 rpm
Rear 1 x 140mm (1 x 140mm included) 1,000rpm
Bottom 2 x 140mm
HDD Pivot 1 x 140mm


As you can see they are similar, but the 630 being the larger case can take larger bottom fans (140mm) and has a larger side panel fan (200mm). The 630 is also available in a version with a larger windowed side panel, that has no fan mount.

If you don't need the extra space for your build, then the 530 maybe the better buy. There are numerous reviews of both cases on YouTube, check these out before making a final decision.
