[Vortez] NZXT Switch 810 Review - Page 4

post #31 of 348
Here's some pics I just took of my 240 rad installed in the top to show clearance with the 5.25" bay with an ODD installed. The fan will have to be installed underneath the top vent. So, a 3x120 rad up to roughly ~47 mm thick can be installed in the top while being able to use the top 5.25" bay.

It looks like you can fit a thick 360 if you sacrifice a few 5.25 inch expansion bays.

When Vortez was talking about rads on the roof, they meant on top of the chassis and under the vent panel.

All I can say is WOW. I saw the switch 810 name a few times now but never bothered to look at it yet. My jaw literally dropped as I was expecting to see another low-price mid tower. Looks like I might have found my next case, very simple and elegant looking but with room for more radiators which I need.

What is with NZXT and using so much plastic on their cases?
But that's the only minor downside I can find in this gem of a case. Watercoolers open your wallets wide!

The amount of plastic is the only reason why I wait to see other cases. That was why with the Phantom, and it's the reason now.

Awesome, thanks Matt! I think most thick rads are around 43 to 45mm, so should be good. I wonder if 2 push/pull and 1 pull would be good enough?

I have no problem with plastic at all, as long as the case doesn't look like a fast and furious rice-mobile. It is easier for me to keep clean. I've had plenty of nice cases with lots of plastic like the phantom that are 10x better than cheap all metal cases.

I concur with the rest, the exterior should be aluminum. Even if it bumps the price a bit, it's worth it. I like what I see with the chassis overall, my only gripe is too much plastic.

QFT. Hopefully they are monitoring the forums, etc and will release a Rev2 or something. Matte black and little less plastic. Course this thing weighs 30lbs as it is empty lol.

Edit: Also, hopefully this will make other company's step up their game in relation to full towers. Might force Corsair to update the 800D, etc.

New reviews up. Think computers has a video walk-through of the watercooled system NZXT put together. That is a 65mm rad in push pull bigeyedsmiley.png
