NZXT Switch 810 – External

Product image Product image
The Switch 810 is packaged in a large sturdy cardboard box with a clear image of the case on the front. On the opposite side we get details on key features and upon opening the box we find that the case is suspended in polystyrene then wrapped in a plastic bag for extra protection. Tape is also applied to add stability to the removable parts and a plastic film is applied to front, top and window too.

Bundled with the Switch 810 is a manual with clear instructions for the case as well as all the cables, ties and screws we require to build a system.

NZXT use a white and black design for the Switch 810 and an all black model is also available. The materials used are steel/plastic and at the front of the case we find four standard 5.25" drive bays. Further down is an air vent which is dust filtered and the front panel covers a 14cm fan which is installed as standard, upgrades to 2x120mm or 2x140mm are possible. The Switch 810 measures 235x595x585mm and weighs 9.1kg.

Near the top of the forward surface we find the front panel connectivity which is hidden behind a flip up panel. In this location we have a reset button and the connectivity starts with 2x USB 2.0 and moves on to 2x USB 3.0, card slot and 3.5mm audio in/out. Also present here is the reset button and an LED switch, more on that later.

The power button is located on the top of the case. Also found here are the hard drive LED and a curved strip LED which is essentially our power light.

Further back on the top of the case we find a large slotted panel which acts as an exhaust vent. By moving the switch at the back we open and close this. It can be fully removed via a push/click to release method and reveals a pre-installed 140mm fan with space for two more.

Turning round to look at the side of the chassis we find that the Switch 810 has a large window on the side which allows us to see the entire motherboard and PSU area. The right side of the case is entirely blank.

Round at the back of the case we find a reasonably standard layout. The IO location is at the top left and beside it is a 14cm exhaust location which is populated by a fan at the factory. Four wiring/tubing holes are below the fan and beside these are 9 PCIe slot covers. Our PSU location is at the base and there are a couple of features worth noting on this side. The first is that at the top of the PCIe slot area and the top of the I/O area are two LEDs which shine light on the back to aid in addition/removal of cables in dark environments. These are activated by the front panel button we mentioned earlier. Secondly the exhaust area is larger than normal and features screw holes that allow us to move our 120/140mm fan up or down.

Turning the case on its side we find that four rubber feet lift the case off the floor and there are two removable dust filters here. One for the PSU intake as well as another for the front. Both have a push/click to remove action.
