[MC/Corsair] Corsair 900D "Godzilla" unveiled - Page 11

post #101 of 5816
There I was intending to buy an H100 soon, looking forward to the H100i instead and hope it comes out soon!

The only thing that I could see that may save the 900D if priced over $350+ is if it includes everything you need to mount the rads into the bottom without any modding..

With Caselabs SMH10 which is exactly what this case looks like, by the time you get the xxl window, the 2 480mm rad mounts for the bottom your looking at $630 after shipping, now throw in flex bay mounting for the front and you talking almost $700

If Corsair can include all that for say $350 and not have superior build quality (that we all know case-labs has), I would consider buying it just to save HALF THE PRICE. Just because I love the xxl window and the bottom chamber!

Does anyone have an eta on this case? How long after pictures get leaked is it out on the market? A month? 2 months? Christmas?

Measured my Elysium and its about the same depth and slightly shorter in width, but its definitely taller! My Elysium with casters and measuring to the top of the front i/o panel is 640mm! This 900D is about 50mm taller, wow! Should be able to sit a few rads on their sides at the top or bottom.


I'm curious to why the bay covers are almost the same depth as the case. I have a good 35mm on each side of the drive bays in the Elysium. Unless these are just covers for the bay slots.


Well, here's hoping this design maybe true to some degree. edit: let alone if the 900D is indeed more than just a rumor

Now, some say "well, you can fit x amount of rads!", to which I say "why buy a $300+ case that you have to cut up and ruin resale and/or aesthetics of just so you can fit a measly 360/480 + 240 rad in a case that should have the ability to house twice that?
I just think that the engineers over at Corsair are ridiculously inefficient at utilizing space or understanding case airflow sometimes... They have done some good work, but just because a case costs $300-$500 doesn't mean it's a good case, in fact it seems like, with pre built cases, sometimes the more you spend the less you get.
I don't hate Corsair, far from it.. Had a great deal on the Samsung 830 256GB not come along, I was going to grab a Performance Pro. But in the history of the world, there is yet to be a company that can do everything well, and Corsair just stretches themselves so thin that, apart from a few great products, they are just under performing and over-priced, and rely on a once-excellent name to sell products for them. I mean, their RAM used to be the best, and I have some XMS3200RE, but now they won't give you anything halfway decent for less than $300 for the Dominator series, and even then it's worse than almost every other first-rate manufacturers memory that costs 1/3rd as much.
Come on!

If Corsair "ripped off" Case Labs, then I will say Case Labs "ripped off" Mick64 and his Proteus:

Stop whining like Apple because somethings have some similarities. A complete rip-off would be an exact duplicate imho.



edit: Also, CL was not the first to come up with a "cube" case. Lian Li, TT, MM, and a few others have done it before. I love Case Labs but lets not call them all mighty god. If yo udon't like Corsair's products don't buy them, its as simple as that cheers.gif

First Mick64 designed his case in 2009, long before Case Labs was around.

As for the 900D, I'll save most of my comments for when we see actual interior pics. But I expect it will be like other Corsair cases just bigger. A very messy interior w/ 11ty cable management holes. Probably even more since it is HTPX.

Lol Rip him off? You must of forgot what you said a year ago my friend..

Corsair held a design competition and he didnt win.. But they still must of liked the idea and decided to adopt it now..

Sarcasm was not detected in my post ??? wink.giftongue.gifbiggrin.gif


Think that was Phobya, ??? Or did Corsair have one too? Mick64 lost the bit-tech/phobya competition. I was hoping his design would have eventually won.


Honestly, I never see things as ripped off, but more of a improved or "my take" on a design. Just like Case Labs; they said that MM cases had a lot left to be desired and they went on to produce a much better case imho. If the 900D is picking up cues from others cases, I don't see it as ripoff, just Corsair's take on their design.

And I do remember showing Mick64's case to CorsairGeorge's thread about ideas for Corsair's future products. This was right before their new mid cases launched. Maybe they did take cues from it after all, ?

Yea I actually tried looking looking up his case to see if maybe some how they made them.. looking for something cheaper than CL in the same design lol.. And I found your post from over a year ago. You posted it in the Corsair official case thread. You said maybe they will adopt his design on the 1000D model.. Boy were you close! 900D
