Hello OCN members! This is my first thread and work-log on OCN. The rig will be for a friend who wants to get his feet wet but does not know how. My friend currently has an Xclio A380 case, which is not a bad case, but it’s not meant for water-cooling. Instead of modding his current case to accommodate a loop, I suggested the Switch 810 case. It was a long shot since he doesn't like white cases. To my surprise, he likes the case! So here I am!

Enough Chit-chat, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. biggrin.gif

Here's Part One of The Build -
Part Two/Complete Build -
Computer Parts

Case: NZXT Switch 810 White

Memory: G.SKILL Sniper Series 1866 16GB (New)
SD: Corsair Force Series GT 240 SSD (New)
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB

Water Parts

Radiator - Top Mount: Phobya G-Changer 420mm

CPU Block - EK Supreme LTX
GPU Block's - EK GeForce 570 GTX SE
Pump/Res - XSPC Dual 5.25" Bay Reservoir
Fans - NZXT 140mm
Barb Fittings - Bitspower Matte Black

Update 1: Goodies (Click to show) Update 2: Test Fitting Top Rad in P/P (Click to show) Update 3: Top Rad Mounted (Click to show) Update 4: Bottom Rad mounted with some slight modifications to the front of the case (Click to show) Update 5: Small Drive Support Mod (Click to show) Update 6: Tight Fit (Click to show) Update 7: Blocks and Tubes (Click to show) Update 8: Components and Leak Testing (Click to show) Update 9: Just a Nice Pic (Click to show) Update 10: Stealth Bay Res (Click to show) Final Update (Click to show)
Here's a few shots of the case!

I'll probably only have two weeks for this build as my friend is a die hard BF3 player. So I'm sure he'll be having BF3 withdrawls the first day I take his rig. biggrin.gif I hope you guys enjoy and I'm open to any suggestions or questions through out my build.

I just wanted to say that the S810 was a blast to do a build in. There is SO much room and possibilities. Thanks NZXT for making a case that offers so much, at an affordable price. I hope everyone enjoys the build as much as I did!
