Closer Look: Interior
The plastic front and top panels of the NZXT Phantom 630 snap off, revealing the case's steel skeleton. The fine mesh filter for the 200mm front intake fan is in the front panel.
The interior of the case seems at first glance to be a pretty standard design: large motherboard cutout for the CPU cooler, many rubber-grommeted cable routing holes, power supply at the bottom, and 3.5" drive bays below the 5.25" drive bays. But there are some surprises in store. Notice that the 3.5" bays are comprised of three separate sections: a single-drive bay, a dual-drive bay, and a triple-drive bay.
Here's the surprise: all three 3.5" drive bays can be removed by undoing a few thumb screws. Note that the triple-drive bay has a pivoting fan mount that can accommodate a 120mm or 140mm fan.
The drive bays can be rearranged to suit the needs of your build. For example, if you have very long video cards or just need extra space for cabling...
Remove the shield under the lowest drive bay and you'll see mounting points for a dual 120mm radiator. And remember, it's got its own dedicated filter, which was removed for this photo.
Let's continue our exploration of this case in the next section.
