Yeah I think simply said the 800D is a better case .. same way a bmw is better than a GM , but factor in the price and the options and stuff and then its another story , they both do great for watercooling , they both look great , you have to ask if it worth the diff in $ to get a 800D when you have everything you need with a switch and great service if you have issues. 300$ vs 170$

Very much agree. And of course everyone's situation factors into which case is "better" for them depending on what rads/other components they have in their loop. I think the 800D has a higher quality build but it's less customizable IMO without doing some legit modding.

Yeah it has that whole bottom section and stuff but if your only going to run a 360 and a 240 rad , dont pay 300 $ for an 800D unless its really what you want , I mean you dont NEED to do it , they can do what they want as long as they know they can have a perfectly clean build with a switch

I just got my Switch 810 in Matte Black in yesterday and can't wait to get to putting my build together this weekend. I couldn't be happier with my decision to buy it. It looks terrific and I love all the possibilities I can do with this thing thumb.gif.

Before I ordered my Switch 810 a couple of days ago I was in a kind of dilemma trying to decide on a WC ready case, and if it wasn't for the price, I could have got the 800D. But as the simonfredette says, no need to pay extra $ if you can get yourself really good WC ready Switch 810 which I, by the way, find perfect for my needs.

yeah, I was between the cosmos II and this, but I was watercooling, so I chose this, but the thing I do like a lot better about the 800D is the split compartment look. I think it's much cleaner since you can just get a piece of acrylic to cover that up (easier than having to make a full compartment like people are doing here) and when that's done, the builds look so CLEAN when the tubes are fed from the bottom (covered though) to the top through the grommets, giving it a very nice look.
But I am over the top happy about my switch purchase.

ALSO, to attach the mesh, I used some brush on super glue and held the mesh against the plastic and it's perfect. pics later thumb.gif

No longer a lurker, my first OCN post!

I've been a die hard Corsair fan ever since the Obsidian series and my most-recent case was the black Graphite. I loved nearly everything about the Graphite: It's sturdy, sleek, plenty of cable room, well designed, easy to open panels. However it's just not a good water cooling case IMO, it's specifically designed to have superb airflow and just a bit more space is desired for a decent loop. I immediately loved the design of the Switch, I can't get enough of those stealthy, sleek, and sexy cases.

Anyway I got my Matte Black Switch on Monday and I couldn't be happier with the case. I had no problem transferring my build into the absolutely massive case. There is still plenty of cable managing and aesthetics to be done so the build doesn't feel anywhere near complete, but I'd love to post my build soon!

The Switch is a great case, though I do have some build concerns:

I'm having a lot of difficulty with my cable management, most of the cables simply aren't long enough to get around this beast of a case. I'd love to grab some psu and fan cable extenders, specifically some nice red or red-sleeved ones (going for a red/black thing) but I'm not familiar with any good brands or places to pick those up. I typically shop from Newegg, FrozenCPU, and Amazon and haven't had much luck finding what I've been looking for. Anyone have some recommendations?

Also, probably my favorite feature from the Graphite was the ease of access that case had to both side panels. If there was any way I could make getting the panels on/off the switch any easier I'd love to know!

Welcome to the forums.

Congrats on your new case and system *cough* switch.

If you do a search on FrozenCPU for "cable extension", you'll get a ton of results. Same thing for Amazon, though there I searched specifically for "NZXT cable extension". Again, lots of beautiful cable extensions to choose from.

I haven't seen anyone mod the side panels in such a way as to allow quick access to the internals, but I would love to see it done.

When I bought mine, I was torn between the Corsair 650D and the Switch. One of the big selling points for the 650 was the side panel retention mechanisms. The Switch just beat the pants off of it everywhere else though. tongue.gif

The Cosmos II just does nothing for me. It's about as exciting as an old Gateway mid-tower that I have setup for my kids to mess around with. And don't get me started on that price tag. Sheesh! What are they smoking over there at CM these days? rolleyes.gif
