Lol, I've been guilty of switching gear and cases frequently. I was surely tempted with the Azza Genesis but my gpu(s) were the factor that pulled me from that temptation

A case lab case doesn't.come.with all the accessories needed at its price listed.. I just put together a shm10 and its finished price with shipping is $670.. how is $350 or even $400 in the same league!

release. I usually like to stay out of religious wars like this, but felt that some of the comments were like having someone walk up to a Ferrari and complain that their RAV4 has more cargo space
If Corsair really does release a 900d (and this isn't some kind of marketing ploy), it should be interesting to see how it compares to Merlin. As customers, we win when the competition is tough

Anyways...it gets the job done cause I'm only using a 360 rad to cool my cpu and that's about it. Others who might want to put in several rads and do multiple GPUs might not like the 800D, so I don't blame people who crap on this model.
If I ever decided to get stupid and do a Haswell/Multi-GPU Maxwell build and watercool it I'd definitely consider getting a new case and I don't think I'd go with Corsair.
I'm not a super enthusiast like you guys who has multiple 1600P monitors and QUAD SLI so take my crappy opinion for what it's worth
Corsair really never meant for the 800/700D to be air coolers. As much as they defended it, to the enthusiast, it was plain and simple. This was a water cooling case first and little thought was given to air cooling. I don't blame them but a flagship case should be able to tackle both well imho. Not one great and the other not so. I'm sure they will put in more emphasis in the 900D as far as air cooling. CM did a great job on the Cosmos II, though I wouldn't call it perfect.
I haven't seen this CL comparison and ruckus on the TJ11. That case is over priced imho, by ~$150-200. Its right in the middle of shark infested territory. Where talking, CL, LD, MM, DD, etc. sharks, yet there's seems to be a market for them. People are still buying them. I don't see it but I guess its a highend mass-produced case that doesn't have a lot of the custom case cons. So, CL lovers eager to bash the 900D, I think the TJ11 is a more appropriate target
