In my opinion the 800D is one of the best cases in the world - and I've worked in a lot of cases.
Yeah i thought something similar, there is no point in killing 800D now when Corsair can fill some holes around like mATX cases, HTPC, a Tower Graphite - Carbide, etc. Why would they kill their flagship so fast?

Make a case similar to the 800D with super airflow while still retaining that clean understated look and I'll buy it.

Airflow is a must, I've got a lot of components to cool here.

Suggestions for the next flagship case: The back side panel needs more room for cable management, and at the same time a new and innovative (like rubber grommets!) mounting system for cables would be nice

I agree. I love my 800D and most likely my next case will be something from Corsair but the back panel doesnt leave much room for cable management. Mine is bowed out a little and I try to keep the wires as neat as possible back there.

Yep, I can do cable management with my foot on my 700D and it'll still look better than the majority of the cases out there because of how easy and intuitive it is. The back panel is another story with less than an inch of space that is just not sufficient enough for those bulky 24pins - and it makes me want to sleeve it every time I look at it. Still love the baby though

We already have one of the greatest full tower cases ever made, and we're polishing that up frequently. We only have 5 cases, really. 800D, 650D, 600T, 500R, and 400R. The 500R and 600T come in two colors, so that raises it to 7 if you count colors. We've got a lot of expanding to do in price points, form factors, and usage models. A lot of guys want high airflow or silence or mATX or Lan Party cases or whatever. We've got to address the places we don't play while simultaneously keeping our features and performance ahead of the competition in the areas we do play.

A lot of work, especially since I do it for cooling & PSUs, too. Heh.
I hope you guys will also make a new graphite series...

I really can't answer that one way or another. I wish I could.
