We do have a Taiwan office where we assemble and manufacture memory, USB drives, SSDs, etc, and other offices/shipping hubs in the EU and HK.
We'll be sending a few systems out to people on forums next year - not sure whether we'll do it on facebook or here on OCN or what - still working out the particulars.

Cuz Taiwan labor is cheap and EPA restrictions are lax but US money is great, like every other company killing jobs in the US.

Its the same in the EU, the production line of big companies goes to Asia. But you can't expect a company like Corsair not to do that, they wouldn't be able to price their products competitive if they produced them in the US.

It's the same thing for every single country.
Look like you are surprised about that AMD_Freak ^^

I wish I did not just buy this phantom 820...LOL

Though I got it for $180 + 13% tax, I would much rather have the 900d.

You live in a country of service, not manufacture. That's how life is.

It's no longer cost efficient to manufacture in big countries unless business taxes are reduced, minimum wage is reduced or import/export customs is reduced.

That's life.

Its called a free trade economy. In a free trade economy, those who are most efficient at unskilled labor will do it. It just so happens, that unskilled labor is far cheaper in China than it is in the US.

Don't blame firms for this. Manufacturing electronics in the US for most companies is corporate suicide - the costs are that much higher - easily double the cost or more; This is a result of free trade signed into law by Bill Clinton. People mention "killing US jobs" but consumers have repeatedly shown that they are not willing to pay more for US produced products - if the 900D were produced in the US and cost 500$ as a result, would you buy it? I don't think so.

Free trade also doesn't eliminate US jobs - it simply moves the goal posts and forces laborers to train and get an education. Skilled labor is in demand, unskilled grunt labor is not -- I see nothing wrong with that. Again. Don't blame firms for "killing US jobs" this is simply a by product of free trade. It will never change unless free trade is eliminated.

I always get so jealous when I look at Newegg or Microcenter promotions, those Americans are so lucky...
I just checked it out and you can get an i7-2700k cheaper on microcenter then I can get a i5-2500k here in europe.
But I'm going off-topic, I cant wait for the 900d to be released and lets hope I can justify paying whatever its going to be priced here.
Also I would love to see what corsair can do with the mATX or mini-ITX form factor,
And I would also like to see a high end regular ATX case from Corsair, I'm thinking mid-tower, 360 rad in the top, 240 rad in the bottom, reversable motherboard tray, lots of dust filters, a nice big side window without fan mounts. That would be awesome, and it would sell pretty good to I think.

Yea but due to the fact of the size of it shipping costs would be pretty beasty, along with if something did ever go wrong with it for RMA purposes. (not much can go wrong with a case) but still could be first shipment issues or something

CorsairGeorge has some Explaining to do, I thought I heard they were coming out in 2012. not much time left.
"Customize your look
The integrated light bar provides a subtle downwash lighting effect that gives your system an impressive look but subtle look. Additional light bars (available separately, beginning September 2012) allow you to match your system’s color scheme."

straight from corsair website. looks like somebody made an error. mad.gif
My bet 900D will be $350 USD and probably $389 in AUD for us Aussies.
These prices dont count the candy corn. Thats extra tongue.gif

Light Bars for Dominator Platinum will be shown at CES I believe.
