You may have noticed that we already did a review on the NZXT Switch 810. Well…here we are again, and this time, we have the new Switch 810 Special Edition! NZXT sent us the gunmetal chassis, and it is most definitely a looker. Taking cues from the more classy looking chassis on the market, The Switch 810 SE has an understated aesthetic, whilst still being very easy on the eye.
The NZXT Switch 810 chassis is designed with enthusiasts in mind. Support for XL-ATX motherboards, huge radiators, tons of fans and some very unique features, the Switch 810 SE is one that may be on your list of considerations. But sometimes being a jack of all trades also makes you a master of none; so did NZXT manage to pull off a feat of design greatness in their Switch 810 SE? We’re going to find out for you, strap in.

The front of the box has a large photo of the case (in white), along with product names and logos. There is of course also the information that this is a full tower chassis.
On the rear of the box there are numerous photos and features listed. Of course, we will cover all of these features and more as you continue on through the review.
As you can see from the above pictures, the case did take quite a beating whilst in transit. Luckily the case is packaged very well, with almost no room for the case to move and become damaged in shipping.
