Thanks for all your replies guys, it is really appreciated. I have been doing some more looking at the ncix website and now I am tempted to buy the NZXT Switch 810.
What are your thoughts about this case, the good and the bad

Many thanks
Steve

Looks like a storm trooper.

not a bad choice for under 200 though. I have used the HAF X for 2 clients now and it's a great tower to work with although it has a lot of bulky add on crap inside that I always take out. like those GPU holders.

I like the NZXT switch 810. I also like the Antec 1100.

FWIW the Chaser is a pretty fantastic case if you can get over the looks. Cable management, dust management are all excellent.

Steve.gt, if you have any specific questions about the Switch 810 I'd be happy to answer them for you.

Thanks for your reply XNine, I don't have any specific questions but if you could just list the pros and cons with a little bit of detail, it will be greatly appreciated.

Well, here's my list (yes, I'm a Rep for the company, but I'm also an enthusiast/watercooler/casemodder.)

Pros:
Price/features ratio
6 HDD/SSD slots in 2 separate drive bays. Each drive bay is fully removable.
7th HDD/SSD slot in 5.25 area.
Stealth Optical bay (door with button to hide those ugly drives).
Fan support: 9 120/140mm fans natively supported in default config.
Watercooling: Can fit a 120/140 rad between PSU and first drive cage, can remove drive cage to get a 240/280 rad in it's place.
360/380 rad supported in the top with no modding.
9 PCI slots.
Dust/Air filters on bottom and front.
Front I/O panel is hidden, has support for 2 x USB 2.0, 2 x USb 3.0, Mic/Headset, reset, and LED button.
Rear IO panel LED.

Cons: Plastic/Steel construction. Though, for the price, you can't really argue.
Front Panel airfilter can be removed, but has screws to fully detach it for cleaning.
Cable management can be a chore if you have as much gear in it as I do.
Drive cage sleds can be a little hard to work with.

Sorry for the late reply, I have been very happy with Antecs P280. It's a quiet case with multiple layers of sound insulation (follows the quiet computing spec). Lots of room between brackets for airflow and can take a dual fan rad, I have a H100 in there. Good luck.
