First time poster, long time creeper. I've read the first 50 some pages of the Official Switch 810 thread as i waited for my case to arrive. My first build in 09 was an AMD Athlon 64 X2 on an XFX AM2 board with 8gb DDR2 (4x2gb), with a zerotherm air cooler in a NZXT Tempest Mid tower. I got bored with that after something on the MOBO fried so i upgraded to an ASUS Z68 Vpro-GEN3 board, i5 2500K, Corsair H50 cooler (boo, i know), and 8gb (2x4gb) Gskill Ripjaws 1600mhz. I have had an itch to upgrade my case to a full tower for a little while now and was debating between the CM HAF X, and the NZXT Switch 810. There was nothing wrong with my Tempest with 3 Xigmatek crystal 140's, 2 stock NZXT fans in the front, and the H50 in push pull with CM 2000rpm fans controlled by ASUS Fan Xpert but i just wanted something new. Ordered the NZXT Switch 810 since I had liked my Tempest so much, and I couldn't believe how huge this thing is once it arrived. Everything went together perfectly, except for the NZXT 6pin PCI extensions were a little to short for my application. I don't really game, fold, or OC that seriously. My 2500K is at 4000Mhz @ 1.18V Stable on prime 95 over an hour, I just like building PC's. I have OC'ed to 4400Mhz so far, but didn't really like the temps even though they were only in the upper 60's to lower 70's. I use this machine primarily for forums and photoshop since I am a bit of an amateur car photographer. In the future i would like to upgrade to a 7870 (currently have a GTX 260, yes i know.), and setup a single loop water cooling setup with a low profile 360 rad in push pull with a dual bay XSPC reservoir/pump combo as i saw it was recommended really early in the official Switch 810 thread.

Thanks!

Ordered another FN 140, longer 6 pin sleeved extensions and a 2 Meter blue led strip so I don't have to have it lit up all the time. I'm thinking of building a loop with a raystorm block, EX360 rad, monsoon fittings and that XSPC dual bay reservoir/pump with the D5 pump. Not sure on tubing size to use so I'll have to read up on some stickies.
