Holy cow, that's movie-length. Hope it was worth the wait. Actually, I'm fairly confident that it is, since it's a TTL review

101 minutes? Screw studying for finals I have a mammoth TTL video to watch.

In all seriousness this looks like a great case, a mid-tower based on this (i.e. 650D V2) would be ideal, this is just a tad big.

Corsair is supposedly coming out with a "350D" sometime in the near future. (I put the name in quotes because I dunno if that's the real name they're going with, or just like a code name). Bad thing (kinda) is, it's gonna be m-ATX and under, so no regular ATX mobo support.

For a supposed "mATX" case they suggested dimensions make it taller and wider than my current ATX case and about half an inch shallower. Very interesting from Corsair.

Half an hour into the review and I like that Tom is doing the "accelerated" strip down of things in videos in these days instead of just fading to black, long may it continue.

I think its kind of overkill for me at least, but its still has the 'want' factor by the bucket load.

Great review of it as well, I have to say, excellent work.

Bravo! Bravo!

I really, really hate when you do this kinda review, Tom.. makes me almost
(almost, I say) doubt my CaseLabs SM8. for a mass-production style case, i'd
have to give it up for Corsair and the 900D. as a way former owner of the 800D
you are utmost correct, it is their first water-cooling cabinet, period. really, no
hacking, dremeling, jigsaw, etc.. just a Phillips and allen key and boom, its going.

i left mass-produced cases because of the extensive modification needed to
support water-cooling in an extreme way. now Corsair has done it to where the
end-user doesn't have to own a machine shop or intricate power tools to add
multi-radiator to the chassis. that is a big plus for Corsair and their design team
(yea! Corsair George). with the hype, previews and now reviews, no wonder my
RSVP to buy one in advance is always empty.

i do really like the rear tray area and using the bulkhead fittings (or fill port) to
transfer the hoses to the back, epic idea. now some of the rear VRM plates
have access to easy to rig tubing. to have monster proper water-cooling and have
HDD array (if needed) was a big task. box checked. Corsair has given the public a
blank canvas to stuff as much gear and hardware to make the radiator mannies
to produce more radiators. nice to see Corsair spreading more to the other support
companies...

thanks Tom on another brilliant review and making me think of "what else?"
