Mine is already white, I am thinking about doing silver too. Right now all my parts inside are silver. Two GTX 560 Ti's which are primarily black/silver. Ram is silver. Going to do grey/silver/white sleeving most likely too.

I really don't like the white exterior, because the white metal looks like a true beautiful glossy white but the white plastics don't gloss as much and scratch pretty damn easily. I know its pretty much impossible for the price of the switch 810 to expect them to do a full aluminum or all metal type build though and I knew that buying the case. The whole two tone thing bothers me though.

This is silver.



I wish i had more money, I am planning to re build my whole pc but not til haswel. I am going to also try full watercooling and make a real nice build log but for now the case mods will have to suffice my desire to have some fun with the pc again.

Here is how the new top looks like for the 810

Thank you so much. I've been thinking of doing that actually. Got the idea from the new revised bottom mounting holes (240mm). Funny how mine comes with the new mounting holes for the bottom fans but not with the new top. Though, it has all the new features: new SSD/HDD brackets, cutouts on top of 5.25" drive bay. thinking.gif

So, that's the new revised top that NZXT also gives out to Kraken buyers to be used with the old 810 revision? I can't just ask for one, can I? biggrin.gif

I just received the package and wanted to test fit it, and the best part, did not have to drill a single hole to mount the radiator. The bottom 240 rad mount holes are perfect, along with the holes in the mesh.

I would suggestion you just get a SM8 or some other Caselabs case... your running out of space.
