NZXT Switch 810 Introduction
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.
The NZXT Switch 810 is a big case like most full tower chassis and has a bit of heft but not nearly as heavy as the Cosmos II we reviewed a few weeks back (20lb vs 47.3lb). This case can handle up to 7 HDD’s, has three 5.25″ bays and NZXT says it has enough room for a 420mm radiator (140mm x 3) in the roof with another 140mm in the bottom. 560mm of radiator is a ton of cooling potential if you are looking to go under water. This case comes with 9 slots to handle your quad SLI / xFire and filters on all intakes to minimize dust bunnies.
This case has a long list of unique features that we are anxious to see if they fly or flop. NZXT also highlights all the features specifically geared toward water coolers such as the 90mm of clearance above the motherboard, removable bottom HDD cage for more radiators, and four extra large rear ports for external cooling that we will explore.
The NZXT Switch 810 chassis is available in either Black on Black or White on Black with an MSRP of $169.99 with a two year warranty. We found the NZXT Switch 810 in White for $169.99 plus $14.99 shipping at Newegg.
