For a white case, I like the Bitfenix Shinobi XL in white, but it looks like it doesn't come with a clear side panel......I could have swore it did. They look similar though.

It looks ok, but less flexible inside, looks like the HDD bays are fixed in the Shinobi, I think you can remove pretty much everything in the Switch.

Ah, great, I'm not imagining things. I've always liked the clean lines and styling of that case

It does!

I don't like the rivets on the window, makes it look a bit tacky in my humble opinion.

Yeah, the Switch is very popular with people that are doing what you are thinking of doing for that reason.

At least it can be recovered by glossy white paint...i think clear side panel is screw mounted.

Yes a little more less flexible Inside, but still a lot of space!

You make your mind up on something and that's it really, I watched a few video reviews on the Switch, I have seen many builds using it and I really liked it, so I figured I need to get me one of them lol.

I am forward thinking to my next build really, and I keep thinking about a custom water loop, not yet but in the future, I think I will go closed loop dual rad first and then maybe in the next year when I get bored start researching a custom loop.
With this case it will do the job very well whatever I decide to do.

I prefer the cleaner look too with no mounting hardware visible, but it's not a dealbreaker for me if I were in the market for one. I don't know that I'm sold on a white case though...

I know what you mean about making up your mind and sticking to it....it's an awesome case and will do everything you need and leave you room to upgrade the guts of it to a new platform.
