I was browsing TweakTown today and saw a news item on a new silent case that NZXT is apparently going to start selling soon, the H630. They have it on their official site, with a listed price of $149.99, though it is not available yet. Although the overall design seems to fit the normal pattern for silent cases (the interior looks quite similar to the Fractal Design Define R4), the support for *two* 200mm intake fans on the front is something new. That looks like it could provide a lot of airflow without much noise, especially if the drive bays were removed and a boot SSD mounted behind the motherboard (both of which the case supports). The exterior of the case looks nice and clean, though obviously I'd want to read reviews about fit and finish (or better yet, see it in person) before pulling the trigger.

Looks quite interesting in a few ways. Although it might have big fans and be called an 'Ultra Tower' it isn't actually that massive which is a nice change from some high end cases where they just seem to add size. The styling is a mix in my mind. Not quite sure about the way the front and top panels meet.

200mm front fans and still has 1" of cable routing. heh. That's a wide tower. Lot of volume, too - more than the FT02.

The price is a big turn off. You can spend 50 dollars less on the nanoxia deep silence 1 and get superior performance.
