Introduction

At CES 2012, NZXT launched a new full tower case they've dubbed the Switch 810. NZXT is calling this a "hybrid" tower design, suitable for extreme air cooling or complex liquid cooling setups and offering users a choice between maximum airflow or noise reduction. With up to ten 120/140mm fans, top 360/420mm and bottom 140/240mm radiator support, pivoting internal fan mounts and removable dust filters, NZXT is definitely taking the cooling aspect of this case seriously.


The NZXT Switch 810 arrived in the full color retail box as shown. The first thing that struck me is the size and weight of this case. At nearly 23" by 23" and 9" wide, the Switch 810 is tall and fairly slender. NZXT claims only 9.1kg (that's just 20lbs) but with the steel chassis construction and lots of fans, filters and extra bits, the assembled weight has to be more than that. The shipping weight of the Switch boxed up is 38lbs.


Packaging is decent with thick, solid Styrofoam caps and heavy plastic sheeting covering the front and tops panels as well as the inside and outside of the side window. Because the front lower and top panels are removable, strips of tape help to hold those in place during shipping. There was no discernible damage to our review sample despite the beating that the box exterior took.
