NZXT Switch 810 Full Tower Chassis reviewed - Rear and bottom panel

Written by Sanjin Rados

Review: Big and beautiful

It's quite useful that the rear panel fan (14cm) can be moved up and down and adjusted to the CPU cooler's position. Nine expansion slots and four water-cooling holes will give enthusiasts some serious freedom for their high end components.

The LEDs on the rear panel are very useful and can be turned off in case you don't need them or simply turned on whenever you need them.

There are two white LEDs on the panel, one above the motherboard's I/O panel and the other above the expansion slots.

There are two large filters that can be removed easily. In the last few reviews, we complained about having to lift cases in order to remove bottom filters but Switch 810 is different. All you need to do is press at the center of the filter (picture below) and the mechanism will release the filter far enough for you to grab and take out.

Switch 810 is very stable thanks to its rubber-coated feet. Since the case almost touches the floor, the only way to provide air on the bottom is use mesh grills. We actually liked this as it will prevent dust from collecting beneath the case.
