I custom built 95% of the cables for it and I sleeved the other 5% as best as I could. This took probably 100 hours - no lie! Cable management was tough and im not to excited about the results but ive seen worse. I'm using 11 fans (Vardar F1-140 x 6, GentleTyphoon 120mm AP-15 x 4, and one 120mmx15mm Scythe SY1212SL12L to cool the back side of the cpu - this required a case mod). This is system is near silent with all fans turned down and still not too loud at max. Im using a NZXT fan controller for 10 of the 11 fans.I reused all my water cooling gear except for the new 1080TI (actually its a Titan) water block with back plate (for 1080Ti not Titan). I relocated my reservoir closer to the front of the case and turned it 90 degrees so the in/outputs are on the side and you can actually see the fancy EK logo! I swapped out my EK cpu block with crop circles to a slick one (thank you EK for selling this part directly to me!). I also redid all the hard tubing with PETG (it is so easy to work with! - 1 hour to tube this beast). For lights I went with 3mm led's in each water block and a $10 six foot RGB led strip and stuck it around the inside front perimeter. I am very pleased with the results thumb.gif

I still want to do a full window side panel (plexi or glass?). I could use help locating this if anyone knows?

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)







Back when I has my 810, I did matching custom windows on both sides, . . clear glass on the left and red plexi on the right to hide the cable area.

The nice thing about the 810, is that the side panels are like the Phantom's, that is, with a lip at the bottom and top that folds inward.

The easiest window mod is to cut your glass or acrylic so that with one edge slid into one lip, it just pressed down to clear the other, . .

Then slide a thin, 1/8" dowel to keep the window 1/8" up off the bottom of the lower track, which keeps it locked in place by the top lip.

1/4" thick glass works perfectly, and with just a slight squeeze on the track, you can keep the play to zero and it won't rattle at all.

Can anyone share to me the updated Switch 810 top plate that had 20mm and 15mm spacing for 140mm fans?

EDIT: I can't find anywhere that sells the updated plate and NZXT is unwilling to cooperate to check and send me one if they have any more in stock.

Can anyone tell Me what size machine screws are used in the front of the 810, these are to mount the 120mm or 140mm fans, I gather they are about 25mm/1" long, but what type are they, M4, M3, or 6-32?
Yes I'm slowly building 2 installs. The 360x60mm Radiator in the 2nd pic is being uninstalled asap. Both PCs use Xeon E5-1650 v2 Hex core cpus.

Is it still possible to get internal parts for this case? My man power switch assembly is totally broken, and that, as well as creating a full 24 pin cable, are the only things stopping me from using this case.

I'm still using my good ol' Switch 810 case with my most recent build, Z390 and a 9900k. Anywho.. I am having a hard time getting rid of my old Switch 810. Still really love this thing after all these years.

Was looking into trying to find a PSU shroud for it, and actually found that ColdZero.eu (https://www.coldzero.eu/nzxt-switch-810-case-parts/). I saw some a long while back on another site/s, but I think the shroud availability is most likely long gone by now. I may try my hand at fabricating my own.. I mean, how hard can it be.. right? lol

I just pulled my old 810 out after years of storage only to find that the rubberized coating along all of the trim has gotten sticky. I tired using rubbing alcohol to get it off, which helped a little bit, but there is still a bunch of stickiness everywhere. Anyone have any tips on how to get it off? I was planning on selling this but I dont think anyone wants a sticky case

Anything sticky means it has deteriorated but because it has become sticky you can instead mask the area of that stickiness and give it a spray of clear sealer.

That would dry and in fact stop the feeling of any stickiness so that the future customer doesn't feel that his case is falling apart. Also check if there is any discoloration of the sticky area hence you might have to coat it with a similar colour, so as to fool the eye of anyone looking at it.
