Summary: If that isn’t enough to cool your build, the Switch 810 has room for two more 14cm fans on top, two at the bottom, one more in front, and one more interior fan for the second hard drive cage. NZXT’s Switch 810 is an innovative, flexible chassis design with plenty of cooling options; a refined, sleek look; and a very reasonable $170 price tag. Well done, NZXT. Well done.
Pros: Innovative design; huge side window; easy-to-use toolless enclosures; lots of cooling options.
Cons: Pressure-sensing plastic panels pop off too easily when you move the case.
Summary: NZXT is pushing into new regions with the Switch 810 chassis, as the case comes with a higher price tag than most of their other offerings. The large XL-ATX case does offer a long list of extremely useful features, most of which are due to the completely redesigned interior space. Thanks to the unique changes and modular HDD cages, you may install radiators in the top, floor or front of the case.
Pros: Light in the back to help you find the right plug in a dark environment, Extremely well engineered interior layout, Plenty of fans right out of the box, Cool little PCB to connect fans to, Removable HDD cages, Multiple locations for radiators, Extremely good, white paint job, More than enough space for the longest graphics cards, largest CPU coolers or biggest PSUs, Hot-swap bay in front, with real PCB to connect to, SDHC Card Reader included, Dust filter on all intak...
Cons: A lot of plastic - no real metal mesh parts to reinforce the outer shell, Top air vent flimsy, No HPTX support, Front hot-swap bay requires you to screw in a HDD into the metal bay, Screwless locks for ODDs do not hold that well.
Summary: The NZXT Switch 810 Case is a full-tower case that is jam packed with excellent features and it looks amazing. If you need loads of drive bays, plenty of room to work, tons of fans, cable management holes and more this is the case for you.
Excerpt: NZXT has been churning out a steady stream of cases and while some are a bit gimmicky others are focused on functional. Their latest case comes in a full tower format and is claimed to be great at switching around from air to water cooling and silence to extreme performance.
Excerpt: Options, folks. That’s what NZXT is shooting for with its new full-tower Switch 810 case, which can be configured in a number of different ways to optimize airflow or sound reduction and is equally friendly for air- or water-cooling setups.
Pros: Great Performance, Multiple configurations for airflow, fans, and water cooling, Excellent overall design and build quality, Good looks, Easy to work with
Cons: Weight--She's Heavy, Glossy finish will smudge
Conclusion: We started this review looking at the Switch 810 so let's begin the conclusion in the same way and look at its build quality. Overall the Switch case is very impressive on that front with solid steel construction, a good paint job and some very nice plastic with soft touch coating that fits the overall chassis very well.
