It looks great. Recently I have replaced my old cabinet. But it's my bad luck that I didn't find your post before replacing it. It must be my prior choice if I found your informative post while I was looking for a quality cabinet. Cloud Computing Security

The case looks great and I'd love to have one. I like the all black paint. I like the cable management holes and the psu on the bottom. I also see they have spaces for three fans on the top (watercooling anyone?) But it seems expensive for me. $300? I have a Thermaltake Armor full tower which I bought for somewhere around $180 I believe. But down the line if the price drops into the $200 range, I might consider it.

Only two things Id change:

*Make the window square and also offer a case without a window.

*Take away one or two 5.25" bays and put more internal 3.5" bays.

Looks good, but for $300, I'll rather get the cooler mater with removable motherboard placement and some series is specially designed for water cooling.  Then again, I don't have $300 to spend solely on a computer case so I'll rather stick with one that's 1/3 the price or less.

Understandable, however, this case (from what i read) is more about a standard ATX case that can cool, and has better cable management. It's about the aesthetics. Also, the price might be high now, but think of it this way, they're charging to make up for costs. A) it's all steel, so it's very sturdy, B) they need to make up for costs on R&D, especially with this "slump in economy" (I say it as such because it's not the problem people make it out to be for the most part) and C) they need to pay the shipping duties because lets face it, 25 pounds by the number of (X) on the load, in shipping fees isn't cheap. Trucking companies will charge a ton for it in some cases.

looks like they took some style cues from Lian Li.  The front looks very similar to my A70B

I love the clean and simple look, but $250 should buy you 2 cases if it's that simple.

The only thing it is is clean and simple. For 250 bucks, they can keep it.

I wouldn't be too hasty, $250 for a full tower is pretty standard for a non-run-of-the-mill case. My only gripe is that it's steel. Granted, I've been spoiled by all of my many Lian-Li cases over the years that are "clean and simple", I suspect most would pay a premium to get the features they want without all the frills of sparkly blue lights and LEDs all over the place (if that's what they want). A quick search on Newegg yields results that show mid-towers going for an average of $89 and full-towers for an average of $269. In my experience, you get what you pay for, provided it's made by a good company, when it comes to cases.

I like it, all makes sense, clean, simple, i think the PSU being in a seperate chamber would be helpful to cooling. I'm gonna get one.

Unfortunately, the separate chamber doesn't exactly help cooling as well as one might expect; many cases, if not all, use the PSU as an exhaust port. I have a Lian-Li PC-V2000 series case and I had constant overheating issues with dual 8800 ultras. I even added tons of extra fans to help evacuate the case. Though, I suspect the overheating had more to do with the reverse-ATX design than anything else. For what it's worth, the case looks promising, and with the rep that Corsair mad for themselves in the PSU business, I'm expecting great things.
