Nah forget plastic. Just steel. I mean like if you took any full aluminum design and just made it out of steel instead. Powder coated or painted or whatever you like. But steel.

Once plastic is used - especially soft plastics like with the USB panel cover on the 800D - it ruins the whole 'premium' effect IMO.

O wow, i really like the look of it, athough it looks like the tj07. I do have the 650d which has treated my well but i do want a full sized tower.

I can't understand the appeal of aluminum full tower cases. When buying a full tower you're obviously doing it to put a lot of hardware inside, and most likely even water cooling. And most people who get full towers go through several builds and upgrades in that case. Even if the case was made out of freaking feathers it would still be too big and heavy to move around regularly. And aluminum does nothing but get scratched and dented really easily.

It's a matter of personal choice. I went from 2 steel/plastic mid-towers and now a lian-li. It's like moving from a regular to a mechanical keyboard. You will never go back. smile.gif

Aluminum is old give us something more exotic like a full titanium structure or chassis with carbon fiber everywhere no plastic

Classics never go old. smile.gif

I use Lian Li a lot for ITX builds. And I do like the style and design of many Aluminum cases. However, I simply can't get past the whole "omg be really crareful so it doesn't get scratched" thing. It's one thing when paying $50-$100 for a 'secondary' build, like a server or HTPC or something, but when paying $200-$300 for a case that you're going to constantly be working in? Upgrading components, refilling water loops, checking voltages, and so on? It just doesn't make sense to have to worry about how delicate the case is.

All it would take is to make the same exact designs, but make them out of steel. And maybe throw a nice, thick aluminum front panel on, like with the MCE-303 case (black powder coated steel, 1/4" machined aluminum front panel). If you want a premium feeling case it doesn't get any better than that.

I'll agree smile.gif... The only problem is that shipping steel cases is crazy expensive... This really reminds me of the ST10 (which is basically an improvement upon the tj07 & tj11)... I know that I am the minority as well, but I have never liked the feel of the 800D... I hope that Corsair really steps up their game on the planning on this case... It would either be absolutely awsome compromise between a case labs and lesser build quality... I they give it the right features, I can easily see this becoming very popular

Main things I want in this case:
Dual 560 rad support in the bottom in p/p (hard to do, but would definitely set it apart)
A place for hard drives that doesn't take up the lower compartment (pointing at silver stone)
A way to pull air up through the case (insted of the normal sideways)
10 full expansion slots (though I thinks that's kinda a given)
Dual PSU support

I do understand your "all steel with a touch of aluminum" and I like the 650D. However, one of the major reason why I want an all aluminum is because it is lighter even with your components installed. It's easy for me to move the case whenever I change component or clean it. For full towers I can't say much, I haven't own any.

The "omg be really crareful so it doesn't get scratched" thing, I also feel it with steel cases.

Speaking of ITX or M-ATX, hopefully Corsair make one. smile.gif

Lol... And we also know that people will still buy it tongue.gif... Tbf there are a lot of ppl out there that (assuming it has good features and build quality) that this case would be a viable option for simply because CL cases can be rediculous to ship out of the US tongue.gif I'm just lucky the. When I do order my CL case, I will be picking it up at their workshop redface.gif

EDIT: and nah... The just want CL to finish Merlin and make some awsome m-ITX with full WC support tongue.gif

Correct, Corsair's steel cases with aluminum front is already a bit pricey, what more if those are all made in aluminum.
