I see a caselabs meme? Much classier and not so plain but I'm not so keen on cube styled cases. Nevertheless the ability to add a 360 and a 240 is whats gonna make this sell. I think a video from TTL will prove to everyone how good this sucker really claims to be!

Looks heavy, think they missed the point.

I think its cool as ! I love my 500R and dont really have room for something like that but if I did, Id buy one. Nothing better than having plenty of room for digging around in your rig especially when youre a chronic upgrader like me that just upgrades things just to buy something new.

I think Corsair are on a winner with this case, it will sell by the truckload particularly given it's dual air/water ease of use and quite clever design.

I want one. I already have a water loop in mind for the beast. That back panel with a little modding can accomodate some more rads as well.
This is gonna make for one hell of a tidy build.

I like this case , although it may be a bit to large to fit where I have my pc now.
It looks like a very efficient case for air cooling and also has water cooling options too.
I want some more info on this before I make up my mind though.
I hope they fixed some of the issues they had with the 650D , a usb 3 front panel header and a little thicker side panel window just to name a couple. But overall I like the looks of it , kind of like the caselabs magnum line.
When will this case be available?

I really like this case too and would love to replace my Carbide 500 R with it. Is there room for push/pull on a H100i up top?
Very nice case

Looking at the video with a build inside, it doesn't look like there will be room for a thick 60mm rad with p\p in the front if you have a long GPU, though hopefully I'm wrong
