Default NZXT Switch 810 Special Edition Review Comment Thread

NZXT continues to evolve their popular Switch 810 full tower case in a number of ways. This time, they're giving it a Special Edition moniker that's headlined by matte back paint job -hiding the cheap looking piano back finish of the original version- while updating a few other items.

By all means, please let us know what is missing. Just remember that you cannot equate a motherboard overview with a case review. :)

Another quality review dimitry.. I asked this on the youtube video comments too, and will ask here as well.. Why do you have to remove the walls mount a rad up top? Numerous people who bought this chassis have no issues mounting the rad without removing those walls..

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..

I guess this is a call for Dimitry to show some more skin in his videos.
Make it so!
Also give the poor man some radiators to play with.

Yeah I agree with giving him some radiators so we can see how they would fit in the cases.

This case has got me really considering buying it. I wasn't a fan at all of the finger print magnet version or the white version but this one is just sexy.

I really really love what you did with the video Dimitri where you show off the "transparent effect" on the side panel with window. Great review as always.

Also where can this be purchased?

And is this different from the Special Edition Gunmetal version?
