    NZXT, a company built on realizing the dreams of gamers worldwide, is proud to announce the Switch 810 hybrid chassis. Built for the hardcore PC enthusiast, Switch 810 is the most versatile and highly adaptable full tower chassis to date. It enables you to easily modify cooling performance from extreme liquid cooling, to superb airflow, or whisper-quiet silence.

    Switch 810 aggressively eliminates heat, boasting support for 280 mm radiators, up to ten 140/120 mm fans. One of the most noteworthy features is an industry-first, unique hybrid fins that you can close to minimize noise and dust accumulation or open to expose passageways for maximum airflow.

    NZXT ensures maximum expandability with two removable HDD cages with a potential of up to 7 HDDs equipped with two pivoting 120/140 mm fans that direct airflow at 15⁰ to the VGA and CPU. There are 9 expansion slots for installing EATX motherboards with Quad SLI, or Triple crossfire. Multimedia access is optimized with high speed dual USB 3.0, a hard drive dock, and an SD card reader.

    Switch 810 offers stress-free installation with immaculate wire management and tool-less 5.25" and 3.5"/2.5" SSD hard drive installation for easy accessibility. Additional features that solidify Switch 810 as the PC enthusiast's dream chassis include a rear white LED light added visibility in dark environments and an acrylic window lets you peer in at your masterful build.

    "Switch 810 is truly the pinnacle of high performance computing" said Johnny Hou, Founder of NZXT. "It offers enthusiasts an array of advanced features intuitively implemented into one of the most unique designs we've ever created."

    The Switch 810 is available for $169.99.

    Looks good, but a non windowed version would look better imo.

    Take a close look at build quality in the top view. The point where front and top panel meet is off by 5mm and the 5,25" covers are all over the place - i've seen 20€ cases that had better build quality. If they ship the cases like the one pictured, it's not even close to a HAF or Obsidian.
    On a related note, i don't like the looks of the case. But that's all in the eye of the beholder.

    Do the fans turn off or just get covered up?

    Also, I've seen some shoddy quality even on high-end NZXT parts. I'd go for a £60 CM Silencio over this.
