NZXT H630 Case Review

Over the last few years NZXT has introduced a number of modern cases to the world and today we see NZXT continue that trend with the introduction of its new NZXT H630 "Shhh..." Chassis. The H630 Shhh... adds to NZXT's already large line of full tower cases, and today we get to take a close look at it. At a glance, the NZXT H630 has a simplistic design; however, it's been packed with a variety of options and features for today's PC Builders. Aestheically speaking, we prefer the simple, elegant designs over the crazy or dramatic cases, and the NZXT H630 fits that previous description. However, the H630 is more than just an example of simplicity. NZXT introduced this product to be a silent chassis as well. That is why they included the "Shhh..." advertising Moto. We are going to put that and everything else to the test to see what this case brings to the table.
