And is this different from the Special Edition Gunmetal version?
Thanks! I like the transparent effect as well! Shows off the inside and the outside at the same time, minimizes the overall time span of the video and is really practical! The Gunmetal version is identical to this one, except the outside coating!

NZXT Switch 810 Case Review Comment Thread .. Here's a post from XNine and myself stating that the walls don't need to be removed. Would like to see some feedback from you as why you think so..

Apart from that, it's a nice case..
Thanks for the positive feedback!

Those wanting to mount a 360mm rad inside have a couple of choices with installation!

One, is to remove the side walls so the rad + fans can be fitted from the side (the default option as stated in the manual), or the second option is to remove the top portion of the case completely, install the rad + fans and reinstall the top portion of the case (This option I was not aware of, and thus did not mention in the review).

I presume the 360mm rad without fans can be fitted without the need to remove the side walls, but in this case you loose the 3rd fan on the radiator.

Unfortunatly i do not have a 360mm rad to test with, so my feedback regarding this was based on observation and the manual sent from NZXT.

Thanks for pointing that out, hope it has been helpful!

I just slid my 360 rad into the top without removing anything. You will need to move your Optical Drive if you want to do push/pull fans and place it in a different 5.25 bay, but push pull are really only needed for extremely thick rads.
