Specifications

The NZXT Switch 810 is a hybrid full tower chassis made from plastic and steel. The case measures 235 x 595 x 585 mm and it has enough clearance for 375 mm long video card. It ships with four 140 mm fans and space for six more. It also has cut outs for liquid cooling and side window so you can see all that expensive hardware.

In Use

Every now and again, I get my hands on an interesting piece of computer hardware to play with and this time around, it's a new case from NZXT called the Switch 810. The company has been working on this case for a while and it comes in black or white. The case has four ports on the rear that have grommets to prevent liquid cooling hoses from being cut as they pass in and out of the chassis. The liquid cooling setup makes it very easy to install complicated cooling systems inside this case.

Case also has a very cool design that let you choose between maximum cooling or building up a quieter machine. I can tell you from experience that a bunch of fans inside a computer case can be annoying due to noise. The case has a space for seven hard drives and removable top plates to accommodate large liquid cooling radiators. The case is designed with plenty of space for large video cards and has a couple pivoting fans design to blow air on the video cards and reduce their operating temperature.

The case is very well built of high-quality materials and has nice smooth edges inside so you won't cut your hands during the build. The stock cooling system uses for 140 mm fans that are reasonably quiet and the case has a pullout filter to capture dust to help keep inside of your machine cleaning cool. I like the large side window so you can pack your expensive hardware inside the case and be able to look at it.

Other than just being cool getting to see the hardware inside, I like side window cases because I can keep an eye on internal fans and it's easy to tell when the machine is dusty and needs cleaned. The drive bays require no tools making this case easy to build with. The case also has rear LED lighting to light up the I/O ports making it a snap to unplug or plug things in when it's dark.

Verdict

Pros

  • Great design
  • Great features
  • Rear LEDs

Cons

  • Standard cooling system may not be enough for some computers
 

Conclusion

I really like the NZXT Switch 810, the case looks good, has plenty of space for hardware and cooling, and has cool lights on the back making it easy to plug or unplug your accessories.
