NZXT Switch 810 Hybrid Full Tower Chassis




Our first glance at the front of the Switch shows off four 5.25" bay covers, a super long expanse of shiny black plastic and a bit of ventilation at the bottom. There is much more here than meets the eye.




Behind a flip down panel at the top you will find your front I/O panel with the pair each of USB 2.0 and 3.0 connections. There is an SD card reader along with the 3.5mm jacks and the reset button and LED button to turn on a light in the back of the case above the expansion slots. You will also notice the top bay cover is a stealth cover to allow the drive to open through it.




Here I removed all of the bay covers and also removed the cover panel on the bottom of the bezel. The Switch 810 gives you no real reason to fully remove the front bezel. That being said I never did, as there is no need.




At the very bottom of the front there is the access for part of the under the case filtering. These filters lock into place with a latch and you simply have to push on them to release it and then push it in until it clicks to lock it back in place.




The top of the chassis offers the option to leave the vents closed as they are now. They will also open to allow for ventilation with the use of the large slider handle in the back.




Pressing down on the back of the louvered panel allows it to come off so we can look down into the trench for radiators. It has all the holes to allow for fittings as well as mounts for 140mm and 120mm fans.




The paint applied to the Switch is the same treatment the Phantom cases receive with the very shiny finish. Since I haven't opened the chassis the covering is still on the inside of the window, but I got an image later of the view, so don't worry, I will get to it.




In the back I found that the fan is adjustable and will move up or down as needed. Along with the rear I/O and the nine ventilated slot covers, you get four large holes for water lines to pass through as well.




The back of my case should be very shiny, but it seems someone cleaned it before shipping with some WD-40 or something. Not a big deal really. I'm sure some soapy warm water and a soft towel can make this go away.




The chassis gets supported by rails on either side that have long, skinny, rubber pads on them. In between is the pair of dust filters that cover the entire bottom of the Switch, one out the front and one out the back.
