Good point, shouldn't be a problem in the first place though. My Gelid's run at 1800 rpm at full speed, yea you can hear them, but no unusual/weird noises caused by them being so close to that metal piece.

Its nearly silent when half powered on the fan controller with good temps.

Another question, there was a talk couple of weeks ago whether to put the top fans on radiator to exhaust or intake.
Did that ever get a definite answer?

I'm thinking about switching the AP-15s out for AP-14s and thinking about intaking the top radiator fans just to see if I can get better temperatures.

the definite answer is there is none.. intake is dustier for the rad , gets slightly cooler watertemps BUT warmer inside ambient air because the air is hanging out in the case too long , exhaust sends warmer air through the rad so the water temps are slightly higher but the ambient temps are lower and your not sucking a bunch of dust into your top rad.. Really comes down to try both and take what you like best.

After spending some time drooling over this case, I went ahead and bought it to replace my CM 690. The CM 690 was a nice case, however, my water cooling setup really made things cramped in the case and I had to place my reservoir and radiator outside the case. The Switch 810 is one of the only cases that will allow me to fit a triple fan radiator on the ceiling/inside the case right out of the box. With a very tempting price tag and a hefty amount of features, I now have a great big box with a nice white case inside sitting next to my desktop.

But one thing worries me: the clearance from the top of the case (not including the compartment) is 90mm. My water cooling system currently includes a Black Ice GTX360 radiator (55.7mm thickness says HWlabs and Jab-Tech) and three Ultra Kaze fans (38mm in thickness). Since I can’t put the Ultra Kaze fans into the compartment on top, is it still practical to have a push setup with my radiator and the Ultra Kaze fans without it creating problems with my motherboard?

I will most likely replace my Ultra Kaze fans when I find an alternative to these fans so that I could place the fans into the compartment, though I don’t want to throw out my fans because they might intrude on the motherboard’s space. Could anyone verify whether my setup will work before I begin transferring my entire computer over to this case?

Okay, playing around with mine today. I'm actually glad I went with gloss black now, it looks like a freaking piano!


No joy on 2x120mm fans on the back panel, at least on mine no joy. So if anyone thought that was possible, it isn't. I read a review somewhere where it was suggested it was. I suppose it's possible, but the rear IO LED is going to be in the way, as is the case itself. One would have to open up the holes a bit. Still not too much of a loss though. Otherwise very impressive case, and NZXT did the right thing including an 8 pin extension with it, it's going to be needed. I already snagged a 24 pin extension as well as I know there is no way this is all going to reach without it lol.

Why can't you put the fans in the top of the case, and the radiator just below and above the motherboard? Have the fans doing pull in the top compartment. That's what I do.

Should I cut it out for less noise/ temperature gain?

I just cut that little tray out with some tin snips.
