Certainly an interesting looking case, if I wanted a plain matt black one I would consider it.

Im already sold, this is the case I will be purchasing.

Edit: Im not too happy with the FAN issue infact Im disgusted, the case is ment to have been designed from the ground up to be the best and yet there are these stupid mistakes, also the case having a window although not outright stupid it is given the hdd fan / air vent issue.

I believe the case maybe worth purchasing once it arrives with the soild side pannel with fan holes??

Whats the ETA on that?

£225 ish. But it depends on shipping costs, which Corsair has yet to finalise

I really like the look of this case, too big for me but it looks fan-freaking-tastic!

Ouch!! That must be approaching (or even above) 25% of a typical build cost... I can think of much better ways to spend that sort of money (and not just beer/women!)

Ouch. I was ready to get my chequebook out for that badboy, but £225 is a bit too rich for me... :(

I love the idea though - simple, clean, menacing.

Bloody hell, you can get Comos S for less then that....

sorry, i was more commenting on it being a bit pricey than asking how much it was..

I really like the look of this case, I am in the market for a new case and this has shot to the top of my list. I was hoping for nearer £200 but I could easily stretch that bit further. It seems like you could build a nice and tidy system in there with no trouble at all.

It looks as good as any of the good old days lian li cases plus can fit a tripple rad without modding, but 225£? for that kind of money I'd expect something that actually has something no other case can even get close to like this case (unfortunately not avalaible to buy).

Wow, it looks amazing although I would prefer it without the window. It's great to see that they actually painted the inside aswell, and not just left it the usual grey.

Price is way too much though, maybe they should do a version without all the useless plastic - maybe that will get it below £200

Ok, now that's hot.
If someone with a functioning brain revises the price and they remove that fugly window, it's mine.

I've been drooling over this case since I first saw it, but then I found out how much they wanted for it. No way, not in excess of £200. The most expensive case I've ever bought was the Silverstone TJ07 and while I like it a lot... there is no way I'll spend more than I did on that, unless it's a case built exactly to my specifications.

hmm...very interesting case, maybe time to replace my p-182, i hope it will be quiet :)
Xtrafresh 27th July 2009, 12:52 Quote
When will you have this up for the full test you guys usually do?

I really like the look of this case, it's very sleek and makes me fantasise about a build with the X58 LE from EVGA and 3 or 4 black edition watercooled cards from XFX...

mmmmmmmm

@bit-tech: You totally picked the thing apart, what the hell? For example why waste two paragraphs complaining about the plastic covers when you can just pop them out and forget about it?

There will be a solid side panel available.

Because they're casting a critical eye on a product?
wuyanxu 27th July 2009, 13:32 Quote
apart from the price, this case looks really good.

im a fan of Corsair after using their PSU along with their problem-free RAM. i've even being thinking about getting their new watercooling kit on my next platform upgrade.

but their watercoolers recommend intake for the fan mounted radiators, yet, their cases shows no optimum mounting point for the radiators that would change the conventional airflow of rear-top exhaust.

Considering the price of it they better point out even minor flaws, its not like it would be some 30£ case where you can't expect much.

Very nice looking case and good features but £225 is too much for a steel case imo, I think case prices have got a bit silly in the last few years.

Looks interesting. Shrink it to something about 50 cm depthwise, lose the plastic bits (I hate plastic!) and I'm sold.
