If any 800D build is set up with the proper water cooling components then airflow is no issue.

Some don't want to water cool their non-reference GPUs (which dump heat inside the case), so they won't be able to use them inside the 800D without turning their case into an oven.

The GTX 590 almost baked my case so I had to return it and stick with my 280. CPU temps went up 10C, hard drive temps went up 10C. My components were cracking and sizzling. It was pretty horrid.

The airflow in the 800D is pretty terrible.

The only thing I could suggest for improvements to the 800D, is making it less cumbersome to add a rad to the bottom of the case. If I can add a rad without headache or messing with dremel, I will be happy.

I'm really curious about the release date of the 900D, hopefully it is in time for the holidays.

If my case issue doesn't get resolved I'll likely get a large Corsair case. They look fantastic with some wire management. I'll probably use some white NZXT super silent fans since they look great on black.

Just noticed Tiger Direct changed the status of the 800D to "Shipping: Available While Supplies Last". Maybe Corsair has already stopped shipping 800D's!! biggrin.gif

Hopefully they also fix up the cable management issue on the back of the motherboard tray. There are no places to tie back the cables with cable ties.
This picture is an example of what the 800D is missing.

All of those tiny holes in the motherboard tray allow for much superior cable management than anything in the 800D.

The right side panel would always buldge for me, hopefully the 900d has a larger gap.

Remember that the 800D was the first case to ship with the cable routing cutouts and rubber grommets, and while we missed it on the tie-downs, it's been on most of our cases since then.

I personally never liked them; they look pretty unclean on both sides. In terms of functionality.. yeah, they're somewhat useful.

Just a suggestion out there, think about throwing in a box of cable clamps and extra predrilled & tapped 6-32 motherboard holes.



I'm working on a little mod of my own, and 40 decent quality cable clamps cost around $2 from Harbor Freight; I bet in bulk they're worth pennies. Along with a couple of stubby screws, you got something straight from murdermod.

We integrated some tie-down clamps on the C70 we released earlier this year. They work really well actually.

Now if those brackets had gaps in them we could use tie wraps to isolate and make a neater appearance. (something like this, forgive my 20 second paint skills)
