    Good point. I am also surprised not see'ing any 810's :ohwell: The Switch is an awesome tower with many great features. If you do end up getting one, you'll be our clubs 1st s810 owner. Post up some pics if u are!! :D

    I would like to update my ownership of the NZXT cases, I'm the proud owner of a NZXT Phantom 410 Gun Metal. :D

    Not the best picture in the world but those who remember any of my photo's will know not many of them are. :laugh:

    Slightly changed from that photo, as I now have a Corsair H80

    Ok, the order for my new build, with the NZXT Switch 810, has been placed! I will be building the computer next weekend, expect a build log and pics.

    Welcome to the NZXT Case Clubhouse Techtu:toast::toast::toast:

    I have always liked the smaller model of the Phantom known as the 410. Thanks for the sneak peak pic, looks like a solid build.:cool:


    Ooohhhh!!:rockout::rockout::rockout: This is gonna be awesome bro! May I have permission to add your build log to my "Project Log" section of the OP? You will have your first subscriber for sure.:D

    I did a review of the Phantom 410 here. I liked it, but it has some issues IMO.

    Umm, I was already here before :) I had Wizz change my name awhile ago from Tech2 to Techtu. I also still own the Beta Evo (custom paint) but right now I'm waiting for a few thing's to build up a spare rig until it'll be usable again.

    The Beta Evo is a great case, isn't it?

    Yes it is!! In all honesty I still have love for the Beta Evo but it was due for a respray and didn't have the space to be able to do it yet so I went with a new case for the meantime, next summer though I think I'll get round to it, maybe even with a custom side window too!

    But sadly for now it'll be hidden away.

    What's the difference between a Tempest and a Tempest EVO?

    Larger difference's are:

    Black coated chassis
    Large cutout for cpu backplate
    Psu intake vent w/filter at the bottom
    Perforated side panel for easier c/m storage
    Tinted side window

    Smaller difference's are:

    Stock case fans come with blue Led's
    More water-cooling holes at the rear
    Vented pci expansion slots


    *I like all the new upgrades Nzxt did on the Tempest, but a tinted window?:wtf: A clear side panel is meant to show off your hardware not hide it, that is my only con on the Evo model.

    I should have a few pics of the Beta Evo with changes to some of the hardware as time progresses, I'll find some out :)

    EDIT: Here's some :)

    I'm going to be putting a z68 rig in a Tempest, probably tomorrow. I'll be sure to post some pics.

    Lots of progress on my 820 build. Will post lots of pics in my buildlog here, and once it's finished I'll post some shots in this thread.

    Oh wow! So many mods from the look of it.:toast: I have never seen anyone cut out the pci expansion slots on a case before, what was your purpose for that if I my ask? Air flow was definitely a high priority for your beta I see,:p Are you running any overclocks?

    Awesome rig dude! Thank you for sharing :)

    I cut out the slot pillars (my name for the sheet metal between the slots) because in airplanes, ground effect holds sway until you get a whole wingspan above the ground. While the slot pillars occlude only about 20-25% of the area, they probably interfere with the airflow more than we know. Same with grills, so I cut those out too. All in the name of airflow.

    OC's? Only up to 4GHz on my i7 875K, and up to 4GHz on the i7 860 that preceded it.

    The main reason for making easy exit for air is that it reduces the work needed by intake fans, so they can run slowly -- hence quietly. The whole rig is very quiet . . . until the dust starts building up on the filters. When I can hear the case, it's time to clean the filters.

    Excellent rig dude!:toast::toast::toast:

    I have added you to the members list and also added your build log to the OP.:) Thank you for sharing this awesome case in our club!

    Just curious, what was your reason for flipping the psu to intake from inside the case? rather then pulling cool air from the bottom. Also I like how you used the yellow wire housing from the cables to match the yellow on your motherboard. The blue lights make em pop out and that is a nice contrast to your whole color theme.;)
