    NZXT Switch 810 Any Good?

    Pretty much says it all in the title. I'm pretty new to self builds but have been digging around trying to get as much info as I can.

    Got about £2000 - £2500 to spend on it (preferably on the lower end of that) and want it to pull its weight for at least 4 years with no further upgrades needed. I'm using a single 23" 1920x1080 3D capable monitor but will potentially add 2 more in the near future. Not planning on doing any crazy overclocks at the moment but will likely dabble when the system starts to show its age. I also work in video production so may need to run CS6 every once in a while.

    Here's my planned rig:

    Case: NZXT Switch 810
    Case Fans: 6 x NZXT FX-140LB (in addition to the 4 included with the case)
    Fan Controller: NZXT Sentry LX
    CPU: i7 3930k
    CPU Cooler: NZXT Kraken X60 (In top of case with push pull set up)
    Mobo: ASUS Rampage IV Formula/BF3 Edition
    GPU: 2 x KFA2 GeForce GTX 680 4GB
    PSU: PCPower Cooling Silencer MKII 950W
    RAM: (Still undecided probably will get 16GB of DDR3 1600 (4 x 4GB) - Ripjaws, HyperX or Dominator Platinums...)
    OS: Windows 7 64bit OEM

    Thanks!

    As long as you're aware how big it is, not cheap ether

    How about the Coolermaster ATCS 840 http://www.scan.co.uk/products/coole...silver-w-o-psu

    Or just the normal phantom http://www.scan.co.uk/products/nzxt-...-tower-chassis

    I've been looking at cases in the region of £100-£150. This one seemed to get a lot of good reviews and performed well in terms of sound, heat and space. Was eyeing up the Shinobi and the R4 but hear they have pretty poor cooling...

    As mentioned, this thing is huge. If you don't plan to water cool, I would look for something smaller. Check out this just to see how tiny an atx motherboard looks in one. http://www.hardwareheaven.com/review...tallation.html
