NZXT Switch 810 Special Edition Case Review

Performance


Test System:
AMD Phenom 2 X6 1100T
Radeon 6870
Gigabyte AM3 Motherboard
2x 4GB DDR3-1600
Hitachi 3TB SATA
Hale82 750w PSU
Havik 120/140 Coolers

Case temperatures were measured using AIDA64, Realtemp GT and GPUz after 10 minutes of the case sitting with no activity and 10 minutes of each load test. Load was applied to the system using Prime95 and Furmark. Ambient room temperature during testing was 25°C.

(NOTE: The object of this test is not to compare the results with alternative products as there are too many factors which can impact thermal performance.)

Results

Looking first at our case and cooler performance we have a great set of results from NZXT. The Switch 810 and Havik combination offers a huge amount of airflow which keeps the system very cool at idle. When we apply full load to the CPU and GPU there is minimal change in the internal temperature and our components run at some impressive levels, the CPU for example never rises above 46°C on the Havik 140. Noise levels are also very good, this is a very quiet system at full load as shown below.
