Corsair needs to make some matx cases

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I really love the design of the new Corsair Carbide Series 300R for the price, but they need to make something like a 200R. A nice MATX case, like the 300R, but just one 140mm in the front, and 2 drive bays. Infact I dont think I've ever seen a MATX corsair case. There arent enough mid grade MATX cases out there, the best one I can find is the Fractal Core 100, but I can stand the 92mm exhaust. Next step up is like a Lian-li or Silverstone. Which are always 90+. Corsair could easily modify the 300R design for MATX to sell it at 60 dollars.

No ones as interested in this as I am I guess.

the interest is there, but the competition is pretty tough since they'll have to compete with TJ08-E

I would have to argue that that is why corsair needs to make MATX cases. I really like the TJ08 design, infact I LOVE that design, but at 97 dollars, no thank you. Corsair could easily make a smaller 300R with a 140mm intake, a 120 side intake, top and rear exhaust, with the same HDD layout, interior design, and quality. At almost half the cost of the TJ08. One of the few other cases I can findm in MATX sub 60 dollars is the Fractal Core 1000, but with one 120 intake and one 92mm exhaust its really not ent for a heavily overclocked system or an enthusiast.

CORSAIRGEORGE already mentioned couple of times that they have no interest/plan on making matx cases, the reason is that the market is too limited and that lots of people who have matx mobo will get an atx case anyways.

Really? I have to wonder, why someone would buy a MATX board, and put it in a ATX case, seems to defeat the purpose. In any case, sucks to be them I guess. Small market is better them no market IMO.

(I don't expect you to answer why people do this)

well, that's their explanation.
i'm a corsair fanboy, most of the components of my pc are corsair's, i would love to have an matx case from corsair, the reason why i (and lots of people) bought an matx board is because i want a small form factor computer, why would i use an atx case then. doesn't make sense to me.

Exactly, I got a MATX so it could be in a corner hidden. I am honestly getting tired of huge cases, an their just getting bigger. I am looking for a good airflow case for my folding/spare rig, and don't have a lot of extra space to part a 600D. I really think corsair makes some of the best cases price wise, granted I don't own one. the new 300R for 80 bucks looks amazing, its just so darn big.


I got sick of lugging my huge PC to lans along time ago.

people don't buy corsair because it's cheap... just like silverstone, they cater to the premium market not the budget market....

300R looks pretty budget to me........ It doesn't even have 2 intakes. Only has 1 exhaust, while 600T comes with 3 fans, and 500R comes with 4. All I'm saying is Silverstone and Lian-Li clearly dominate the market. Something MATX on the 300R level seems like it would be able to be sold easily at 60ish USD.
