[NZXT] NZXT Teasing new case - Page 15

post #141 of 252

I, and many people here just want a darn Switch 810 update. The case is bloody brilliant, but its starting to show its age.

I'm with you on the switch 810 update. I sent Retell a PM about an hour ago asking about it in fact. Or just another large case in general. The new case looks amazing and I know a lot of people are looking for SFF , but I prefer bigger. I'm dangerously close to pulling the trigger on a H630 or another Switch but will hold out if some good info comes about. I'm selling my current switch cause it's the old glossy one and I want a matte black or gunmetal for the new water build I'm working on.

^ Personally I'm going to pull the trigger on a phantom 820. Newegg has them for 20% off and I can't lie, that case looks legendary, especially in gunmetal.

Dumb question, does the gunmetal have a matte-like finish just like the matte black? I don't like fingerprints and micro scratches.

Great case. Black/red wont suit my color scheme, maybe? White/Black do not go well in my place. I did buy the Whiter Switch 810 and a month later the matte/Gunmetal came out. Sad.
If it was all black with white or gunmetal then I would consider a few of these for new builds.
Wish you left the back ssd mounts from the H630.

I will be honest, the only reason the Phantom didn't make my cut is because I'm dead set on the sexy Monsoon dual bay res. In that case it would just be hidden. From what I can tell from all the videos I have watched on it the matte finish is on the gunmetal 820. Linus has a really good youtube vid on it.

What are some of the initial impressions of the case so far guys?


What are your likes?

What are your dislikes?

How is the pricing?

Color options?

What colors do you want to see, if possible?

Pricing is great imo. Cheaper than a switch 810. I will switch from a white switch 810 to the red H440 to complement my r290s and red cables.

What are your likes? 

  • PSU shroud
  • HDD sleds that aren't plastic pieces of crap.
  • Ridiculous amount of room for radiators, especially for a mid-tower.
  • Solid case feet, for once.


What are your dislikes/wants

  • Tabs that the metal HDD sleds rest on could user rubber covers, to isolate vibration from HDDs even more
  • Front-side panel (where the HDD sled tabs are) could be a bit cleaner. Maybe a panel that makes that part cleaner looking, rather than perforated. Could even incorporate NZXT logo/styling.
  • Needs a Switch 810 styled window, rather than a boring rectangle imo.
  • Aftermarket SSD mount covers for a clean mount in case you don't use one of them.
  • Isn't a Switch 810 update :p!!


How is the pricing?

  • Tad bit high in the USA, quite competitively priced everywhere else.


Color options?

  • Gunmetal
  • Solid black, with black trim (preferably all matte)
  • Matte color versions, kinda like what you did on the Switch 810.


What colors do you want to see, if possible?

  • ^See answers above.
