That would have been awesome, lets see what happens around thanksgiving. I'm actually thinking of picking up another white case and adding that to my existing build and make it into a double wide.

I contacted dwood to make me a custom pedestal to house the PSU, and depending on what he comes back with in terms of design and quote, I might just pick up another case, house bunch more rads in there, hook em up side by side and have myself a double wide.

Same. I contacted him to make me a pedestal to house a 140.3 60mm radiator (most likely an Alphacool NexXxoS UT60), and an XSPC Twin D5 Dual Bay Reservoir w/2 D5 pumps. If it gets too tight in there for the 140.3 and the bay, then I may go to a 120.3 and use the 80mm Alphacool NexXxoS Monsta instead.

I kinda want to see the case in person (hopefully micro center will have it in stock soon).
if you don't mind me asking where is "Here"

I'm in the US Virgin Islands, which while only 35 miles from Puerto Rico, where the Egg does ship, it's a different customs zone, and they do not ship here.

Don't get me started on different custom zones, I have to deal with that at work (good thing nothing is getting shipped) and there are times even I say really that sucks...

That is prolly 1 of the most beautiful cases i have ever seen!!!!. I have been looking into case wraps for my 410 because they are cheaper then the whole custom painting but they are hard to find , i think i have found 2 places that sell them. But Major props for this case its stunning!!!!!!!!

Looking at adding the Switch 810 to my Christmas List. I have a Coolermaster 690 right now but looking for a case with better cable management. I like how modular this case is. My only concerns are with some of the function. The top and front bezels seem to come off easily as I have seen in the unboxing videos. My question is, how durable is the case, more so - what is is the build quality in terms of function? Is there a lot of thin plastic or is it pretty rigid all around?

They come off easy in the videos because they are pre-loosened to make the video flow more smoothly.

All the plastic is pretty darn durable, and popping the panels off takes some genuine effort, hence why they have them ready to pop in the vids.

Specifically, the top pops, and the front releases.

I completely agree.

The top and front panel have a "click to release" mechanism that all you have to do is push down, then let go, and it will come of easy.

The sides are another story. There are 2 standard thumb screws, top and bottom, that need to be removed completely, and a third center one that only has to be loosened. Once loose, you just push it down, then you can "hinge" the side panels out and off.


Cable management on the Switch 810 is a dream. There are holes for cable pass thru in just about every convenient location, and most have a rubber grommet that will nicely hide your cables as they pass through. I personally love the finish (which sadly will see a bit of wear on the inside part of the case where he "hinge" is on the side door, but from the outside, you'll never see it. You only see it when the side is off), with a nice paint job inside and out, not to mention no rough edges anywhere. No cut hands/fingers from working on your case. Even the 2 internal fan brackets are a nice touch, let's you direct air in from the front to exactly the right angle for any component you want.

Yeah, there is a little bit of plastic in on the case (front and top mainly), but it's an otherwise sturdy case. No noticeable flexing like you get in some cheap cases.
