Yea, I have made my mind up about the other parts but I really want to start from the case up and start building from there. Getting anxious to buy something now biggrin.gif

I hope they can give some sort of indication to when the case will be release cause i'm holding out just to hear but just hoping its not ages away

We're not really trying to compete with Case Labs. Their stuff is so highly specialized it wouldn't make sense for us to try and re-create it.

I understand there's no direct competition on Corsair's part but for consumers there are very few cases that can support at least 2 480 rads so easily. So once you're up into that level of high-end water, I think it's natural for consumers to consider all their options.

Based on my personal plans for my loop, the 900d seems to fit all my criteria. Case Labs does too and then some but at a significantly higher cost. For others it may not and Case Labs is the only option for them.

I bet hearing from a few folks how this doesn't measure up to much more expensive cases is annoying considering that isn't the target corsair is aiming at. These are the same people that would compare an H100 to a full water loop. Consumers don't always like to stay in neat market segments. We'll compare apples to meatloaf.

That said it'd be pretty cool if Corsair made a limited run of aluminum 900d's for $500 or less.

With my eyes, 900D can hold 3 x 480 rads, dual PSU. Plus, it comes with fan filters, SATA Hot-Swap Backplane, more than four 120mm fans included, back plate can hide cable (usb, PSU, DVI/DP cable). Maybe they can add PWM PCB for fans; hole to mount pump, res... more good things to come. biggrin.gif

More like that imo : 1 480 on the Top, 1 480 on the bottom, 1 Psu (on the other side, behind the bottom radiator), 2 fans on the front (or 3 ?) 1 on the rear.

I think it comes down to Corsair catering to all segments. This causes customers to think Corsair can provide everything they desire.
CaseLabs focuses on one segment, enthusiast, that's all. Corsair has to deal with low-end to enthusiast buyers suggesting conflicting features.

The 900D will attempt to satisfy everyone, from water/air cooling, space, storage, flexibility etc.
As I said in another forum, there will be nothing special about a Corsair branded aluminum case.
But there's is something special when a company designs a case that can house any build for years into the future under $400.

For us water coolers, having a case custom tailored to our needs is worth its weight in gold (well, maybe not gold, but at least copper). If you are an air cooling enthusiast, I am sure you would understand should someone design a case specific to your needs.
The problem lies in trying to cater to the enthusiast market and the regular consumer market, because as we saw with the 800D, one will suffer.
Why would anyone spend custom case money on a "appeal to the average" case? It is beyond my comprehension. I understand brand loyalty, as I will always drive BMWs. They are not only the absolute best in their market Share (pshh Mercedes + Audi), the cars have actually saved my life.
That doesn't mean that I am going to buy a model that I don't like, and that is what differentiates brand loyalty from blind loyalty.

dude, aestetics is one of the most important aspects when it comes to cases. . And the Corsair 800D looks way better (to many) than lets say a switch 810, elysium or anything from caselab etc.
So even if the Switch 810 brings much more value for the money, many "Enthusiasts" would still tend to buy a 800D, TJ07 or something like that over the switch and mod them, even though they are outdated.

I think we're saying the same thing here. I really respect the Case Labs guys for what they're doing but we're not playing the same game, like I said. And you're right, sometimes consumers are comparing apples to meatloaf or even ceiling fans. It's very odd.

As for the aluminum 900Ds, it'd be nice but not really possible to do without putting another significant six figure amount into tooling, and even then it'd be unlikely it could be under $500.

And at the end of the day, we'd rather put our resources into other areas (smaller form factors, better mid-towers, etc).

A mITX offering in the works? biggrin.gif
