TTL and a couple other guys got their review units fine, but some of the first shipments were damaged.

Otherwise, through no fault of their own, the guys at WebsiteX.com or whatever would be screwed out of having launch-day reviews.
Nobody will be able to buy the unit anywhere until then anyway, so it doesn't change anything.
I do have some good news - the tooling modifications we made have worked, and we have very high quality units in production.
And better news - I will be giving a few cases away. Not sure on how yet, facebook probably, or maybe I'll just randomly pick through this thread and see who's going to build the most ridiculous thing and send them a case so I can see them do it. Not sure yet. But I'll post here before I start the contest so you guys have a fair shot at it.
Just to clarify, even the 10 lucky people who would be able to snag a case before the end of this month wouldn't be able to receive it before April 16th? Since even an early customer could interfere with the NDA...
Either way, thanks again for being so constant with the updates. All of us appreciate it immensely.
I would love to be one of the first to be able to snag one from Corsair.com, but if shipping is going to 10% of the total cost, I'm likely just to stick with Amazon even with the delay. No WCing until May for me it seems.
