In a recent press release, NZXT stated that the two new available colors are its way of showing their fans that they do listen to and value feedback.

Specifically, “Without our community’s valuable feedback and criticisms, our products would not be as unique as they are today. We always aim to maintain customer satisfaction through providing high quality products at great prices, which is why we decided to release the Special Edition to feature two of the most demanded color palettes from our loyal fans: Matte Black and Gunmetal.”

The Switch 810 is a full tower ATX case constructed of steel and plastic materials. It features support for up to 10 fans, six internal hard drives, up to an E-ATX motherboard, and plenty of room for custom liquid cooling solutions. The case also provides cable management cut-outs and tool-less drive bays.

NZXT's new big white blocky enclosure

We've come a long way from the chunky off-white cases of yesteryear, so far that white cases are coming back into style.  Thankfully they are a true white and not the spoiled milk white which we were used to.  NZXT's latest enclosure, the Switch 810 is a great representation of this trend with a white external colour scheme which hides features an IBM PS2 users couldn't have imagined in their wildest dreams.  The case offers great air cooling but was really designed with those using watercooling.  Legit Reviews did run into some issues when mounting SSDs and suffered a bit of sticker shock but do recommend the case for those using external radiators.

If you'd like a second opinion Steve is more than happy to provide you with a review and NZXT with a Gold Award.

"We were very impressed with several of the innovative features that NZXT put on the Switch 810, especially the consideration for pretty extreme water cooling setup with that 85mm of top clearance. The ability to drop a 420mm rad in the top and another 280mm rad in the bottom should be enough cooling for even a quad GPU setup. Placing easy to access filters on the intake fans is a real plus and should keep the dust bunnies to a minimum..."

NZXT Switches the Phantom for an 810

NZXT was thinking big when they created the Switch 810, the case is 235mm x 595mm x 585 (9.25" x 23.4"x 23") so you should have no problems fitting in large CPU coolers or oversized graphics cards.  The size also accommodates 10 fans, either 120mm or 140mm or for water cooling fans a 360mm will fit perfectly.  Neoseeker are not fans of the piano black finish as it tends to feature fingerprints and dust more strongly that it does a shiny finish; in all but perfect circumstances.  Apart from their aesthetic differences though, they highly recommend the case.

"The NZXT Switch 810 builds on the success of the Phantom series, while attempting to sweeten the formula with features like a hot-swap bay, improved cable management, room for a 360mm radiator, 10 internal fans, and support for XL-ATX and E-ATX motherboards. It even comes in white if you want, like the original Phantom. Find out if the Switch 810 can live up to its predecessor in our latest case review."
