Hello guys! So, I just got the NZXT Switch 810 today, and I have all the wires tied down. My Buddy and I were playing BF3 then after an hour of up time, he and my dad said the y smell a burning smell. I have double checked everything! the smell seems strongest around my dvd drive. Nothing is burning hot to the touch and no wires are melted anywhere. Is it possibly just the case?

disconnect the dvd drive and look at it carefully do you have another to try for a test

Sounds like excess grease being burned off to me, give it a couple of days and it should dissipate
