lol my thoughts exactly!
i thought from the look of it it would be like $150!
i...am VERY interested. my CM690 II doesnt have rubber covering my cable managment holes.
and my CPU hole doesnt fit AMD CPU backplates (and that PISSES ME OFF).
i want the white one cuz black is soooooo mainstream and it would look great with my white Dell Quietkey and Intellimouse 1.0 lol.

A bit of feedback is in order then:


1. I'm not sure about the white design, might work, might not.

2. What is a firewire port doing on both cases ? Is that commonly used nowadays ?

2a) Why not an e-Sata port instead ? The HAF 912 Plus and Advanced have it. For the price, you're probably competing with them.

3. Can you please make one of the front drive bay covers like the HAF 912 / Plus / Advanced ? Some people want to install a multi card reader or a fan control bracket, and for that we need a convertible 5.25" into a 3.5" bay. There are few cases that include one, and sincerely, I don't know why. Even if some people may argue it doesn't look too good on the front panel, just take it out, install the DVD / Blu-Ray drive wherever you want, and use that bay cover in the place where the convertible used to be.

4. Two 120mm fans at the front may make more noise than a single 200mm fan... I'm not sure it's a good idea as you have it.


All in all, the interior looks nice, but you still have some work to do. I particularly like that you built the cases with enough room for a GPU with an AXP installed without the need to remove the HDD cage.

But if you can actually remove the cage, I'm not sure that a single block HDD cage is a good idea if you ever need to install something bigger (which probably still doesn't exist). A smaller fixed HDD cage at the bottom, like the Cooler Master HAF 912, would probably be a better choice. If not, if you have to remove the whole cage, where do you put the HDD's /SSD's ?

I'm quite content with my 800D, but that white 500R looks great. Reminds me of the antec 900.

It's funny that you mentioned this because tons of people wanted dual 120mm fan support in the front intakes of the 650D and 600T. I'd much rather have this option than being stuck with Corsair's 200mm fan or having to mod other fans to fit because of thickness issues.

I had a 690 II Adv., now I got a HAF X, but it's something about Corsair's approach to case design that appeals to me.
