Hey guys

Been looking for a new case for a while now to upgrade from my Antec 900 . ( Old school version 1 )

Both these cases look awsome .

On Corsair's website it shows June 2011 as release date .

Can anyone confirm this ??

If anyone has any other case options would be appreciated .

Well, there is the FD Arc Midi, also due to release in June 2011....oh, wait, it's already mid-June.
The only contenders I can think of would be the Lian LI Lancool series (K58/K59/K60/K62/K63), CM 690 II, or CM HAF 922.

Just found this video on the Corsair website. If you skip to the 2:20 mark, the Corsair rep says that the 400R ($99) ships out in July and the 500R ($129) ships out in August.

They originally intended for June but sent the first two Prototypes back for a quick retooling and redesign (nothing major though.)

Expect the second to third week for July for the 400R to show up, and the 3rd or 4th week of August for the 500R.

EDIT: That's the US market, for Aussie land it may be a bit longer.

They look very different to be in the same series. For now i'll stick to the 800d but it's a cool case.

Alright thanks

Really want to get rid of my Antec 900 .

And the Corsair 400R looks really good for the price.

One thing though at the top left of the case is their a cut out for the 8 Pin ATX PSU Connecter ?

Yes, there is. You can see it in one of the pics on the Corsair site. Just zoom in all the way.

Earlier this month in Computex 2011 at Taipei, Corsair rep said the release date of the 400R to be early July.

However, I am now seeing several major etailers in China listing the 400R. History tells me that this could mean it will be available before end of this month. This is for the Greater China region though and I am not familiar with the Australian market.
