Cant decide on which NZXT

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
so ive been itching to upgrade my case since i saw the switch 810 but i stumbled upon the NZXT phantom. I REALLY like the phantom alot but the switch is really nice too. i was hoping you guys could help me decide. my current rig is what id b putting into it but in the future im going to upgrade my graphics and crossfire (possibly 2 HD 8000 series). i was wondering if anyone who has either would b kind enough to post pics cuz yea space and everything is really important but i wanna have a case that just looks killer as well. like always thanks for ur help

The phantom has little room in the roof, making it a giant compromise if you watercool or plan to in the future. The switch is much better in that regard.

Which Phantom in particular? The 630?

here's a not so great pic of my Switch 810
I modded my front panel so keep that in mind.

also check out the official Switch 810 thread for some great pictures http://www.overclock.net/t/1209048/official-nzxt-switch-810-thread

Unless you're looking at the Phantom 630 (link) or 820 (link) or just looking to save some money I'd get the Switch hands down. Better case all around than the original Phantom.

I'd say NZXT Switch 810, it's an amazing case!

It might look rather basic, but, you can make it as flashy as you want thumb.gif

Then why not get a Phantom 630? Granted, you can't get the same green/black color scheme but it still has the Phantom aesthetic and is just as good of a case as the Switch 810.
