Case is same size internally. It didnt really cover it up on a 360rad that much.. They move it back towards the rear a bit.

Unnecessary built-in lights, completely hideous side panel and fan-controller which looks completely out of place on this case as well as the redesigned case stand - all make this a downgrade for the original NZXT Phanton or Switch 810 owners. Shame on you, NZXT.
mom, is that you?
post #664 of 736
what da hell is that on the bottom front base? hurry up and give me a full metal switch 810 and take my money!!!
post #665 of 736
I like it.........always hated the hinges and door on the front but I like the looks......... but hey I actually like the "looks" of the HAF 932 even though most think it's pretty fugly. tongue.gif

Like others have said launch price is a little high but once these drop to under $200 more and more people will get them.


Nice case NZXT thumb.gif I've built three system with your 410s and all have made me a little jealous with their ease of use, and chasm in the back, in comparison to my 932....... biggrin.gif

If the price becomes reasonable I wouldn't hesitate buying one in the future smile.gif

The Switch 810 had some issues easily pulling air from the bottom on some carpets. We wanted to fix this issue, we tried doing tall feet, but it looked awkward and increased tipability. So instead of just engineering the solution, we embraced it and made it part of the design. thumb.gif

If NZXT could beef up their build quality a bit, the price tag wouldn't look quite as bad.

I agree, these photos are taken of pre production models which don't reflect MP. In MP this absolutely unacceptable and I wish we could take photos later, but we need to have them very early for box art and marketing.

The Phantoms have always been a love it or hate it kind of thing.
But really?
"Shame on you"? "How dare you" "BS"?
And, best of all, "drowned in disappointment". That was probably salt water from all the cry babies!
It does look a little pricey at $250, but who pays full retail? You can bet your bottom dollar this will be regularly available at $200 once the initial rush is past.
And for the record, plastic like this doesn't come cheap - I dread to think what the tooling cost is for something like this.
If I was building a new machine right now, this would be high on my list of cases to check out.

Thank you. redface.gif Also, I believe this is the most we have invested in exterior tooling ever. wink.gif

Shut up and take my money!
post #669 of 736
Hey Retell, in one of the gallery pics with the blue watercooling setup, it looks like the pump is mounted directly to the side of the case. I remember you saying something when the 810 was released about a pump mount, but it never surfaced. Is that still a go now that there are 2 cases that could use it?
post #670 of 736
uh $250 dollars is too much for me... The most I have spent on a case is $140 on the original Phantom and I kind of regretted it. I was hoping it would be a bit cheaper.
