Rosewill Thor V2 or NZXT Switch 810 SE Gunmetal?

buying full towers as they offer great expandability. which of these two cases has easier hardware installation ( especially 3.5 inch and 2.5 inch drives). also, which offers the most expandability.
I chose the 810 SE as it is the least expensive where I live and the best built out of the 810 line-up
which is better. both are £80 full towers..

  1. I personally prefer the ThorV2...and used it in my current build. I got mine on sale for less than $100 USD (£73), and is a great case with a lot of great features. However I do plan on switching for a case like the Corsair 900D in a few years (maybe a bigger one by then). Really go with the one that you feel meets the functionality and look you want.
  2. I wouldn't get either personally - unless you're setting up something ridiculous like quad SLI or you need a ton of optical drives - which you don't these days, I just don't see the need for full towers any more. The case I just bought has no 5.25" drive bays (NZXT H440: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/nzxt-h440-mid-tower-case-white-with-black-trim-with-side-window-and-4-quiet-fans-w-o-psu ).

    I personally require at least a few 5.25" drive bays, with one of them going for a blu-ray drive.

    What are you going to be using these drive bays for? I thought about going that route but then I figured that drive less would be a much better way to go, using my external HD and external DVD burner. Pretty much all media is streamed and downloaded anymore.
  6. Well, I really enjoy my blu-ray drive, and watch blu-rays on it pretty often. I have another one being used for my OC Panel that came with my motherboard. And have a few empty ones left still, that I may add an sd reader for one day, have not decided yet. I don't care for external devices, and don't really care for using the external hard drive I use for saving some of my recordings, and I plan on replacing it with another hard drive for internal use later on.

    There's two bays though, on my R4 all I use mine for is just my flash card reader and my BD-R drive - which I use more for backups than I do for watching movies. I will say that watching BD-R movies is more of a pain on the PC than it needs to be, I generally wind up watching the iTunes or Google Play files that are included with the discs.
  8. Definitely agree about the blu rays being a pain on pc. But it is easier to skip to certain points though using the slider, rather than just chapter skip and fast forwards. Cases are a lot to do with taste of style and preferences, along with budget of course...so I just say that you should get whatever you will be happy with.
