NZXT Switch 810 Case ReviewOptions, folks. That’s what NZXT is shooting for with its new full-tower Switch 810 case, which can be configured in a number of different ways to optimize airflow or sound reduction and is equally friendly for air- or water-cooling setups.

Available in black or white, the NZXT Switch 810 takes a while to get to know intimately. NZXT built buckets of details into this chassis, and the more you work with it, the more little surprises you find, from fans that rotate and slide, to well-placed LEDs, and the “hybrid fins” you can use to regulate noise or enhance airflow...

This case is beautiful ,must of the case are good in performance but are wayy too uglyyyyy if anyone (like me) likes quality, good performance , beautiful design i think you found it..heavy??? Don't worry i won't be moving it lol. If you missed this case shown in CES, this is how hardcore you can mod it :).------http://hothardware.com/cs/forums/p/59719/421869.aspx#421869

It's a heck of a case. The Black version looks good, but I'm spoiled by the White version, which looks even better. NZXT is definitively stepping up its game.

The NZXT cases have been good before but this is impressive; I am amazed at the number of configurations that can be had with this case and the number of adjustable things this case have. I'm not crazy wild about it's looks but then again no enthusiast is really... The review as good as ever Seth, in depth and detailed. I'll know about the backplate thingy whenever I'm thinking about the case but that won't stop me from buying this case, in fact I might have my eyes on it.

Oh and about the weight, I'm a strong guy; I can handle 20 pounds or even 100 pounds. A bit of weight won't stop me from bringing this case to LAN parties.

The only thing about clear cases is that they leak noise. I'm thinking about going with an Antec P280 to replace my Antec P180B. I really can't hear it at all unless my video card kicks into high gear. Other than the probable noise issue (though the review says it's okay) it seems like a decent case.

Like the rear adjustable exhaust fan feature and closeable top vent. Very well thought out case. I think NZXT has improved in case design and functionality by leaps and bounds these past few years.

One more case to add to my list of possibilities it would seem.

Currently torn between this, a Corsair 500r, Chaser MK-1, and a CM HAF 922

It's a fine looking case.

let's see this as one of your up and coming giveaways!

Great review Seth.

It's a good read and the pictures are perfect.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

20lbs is quite light compared to most full towers. and if you talk rad support, those full towers are usually upwards of 40lbs.

the fractal arc midi is 20lbs. and this may have changed my future case.
