Having them optional would be great, but including those when they're only used when you move the case isn't very sensible. Just make it an option. wink.gif

I wonder as well. Nice that they included SP120s fan tough with the h80-100i, won't have to buy them. But 2 years seems to be short as I tend to upgrade single piece every 3 years.

I don't think it would be a good idea to have an option for only some wheels... IMO, it'd just cheaper to include them and be done with it. After all, such a big case might stand on the floor and wheels would be greatly appreciated hehe.

Don't trust Newegg specs until you see the final pictures and the product on the manufactures site.

 

Newegg often uses place-holder specs or old info by mistake.

Good to hear for those who are interested in upgrading thumb.gif

Anything that may or may not be in development can't be discussed unfortunately. There are actually reasons for this beyond just "we don't want to", some of them legal and related to any potential IPO or stock offering/valuation.

I think he means after it was known to be true. Take the the new NZXT case. They let it be known the release day. Common sense says things aren't known when it's in the dev stage. It's not even a release date on this case. If that was known, @least some people wouldn't be put on standstill... I don't care to see pics, cause most of Corsair stuff looks great & I don't care for a release date either.... I just wanted to know if it was true months ago. Now that I see it is, I'll just wait & see....

Now that I see it is, I'll just wait & see....

Let's take the 200R as an example of this. About 18 months ago I figured, for business purposes, we needed an "entry level" enthusiast chassis, priced around $59. Since I'm the PM, my job was to evaluate which products were best sellers, worldwide. This changes more than you might think. The Zalman Z9, for example, has almost no presence in the US, but sells VERY well in Eastern Europe and Asia. In the US, the Antec 300 and the HAF 912 sell very well, but the versions of the HAF 912 (the Plus and Advanced) that sell in Europe and Asia aren't the same thing or the same price.

So I did a product comparison, and after we purchased all the top sellers, I made a requirements document.

The overall goal was defined. We built systems in each of them, and kept a list of the pros and cons of each.

The next step was to identify the engineering requirements. Can we re-use the 300R frame? Or one of our other frames? Can we find an off-the-shelf chassis from one of our ODMs that meets the requirements? Turns out with the 200R we had to build entirely from the ground up. All the inexpensive chassis from the ODMs didn't meet our needs, so we had to tool the entire thing, which is expensive and takes quite some time.

The next step was to do the mechanical design of the frame of the case. Where the hard drives go, etc. Since all the $59 cases we bought had some problems - we identified each of them. Hard to build in because of the lack of tool-free options. Lacking USB 3 support. Lacking SSD support. Limited cooling expansion. Typically gaudy exteriors. Build quality lacking. That sort of thing.

We attempted to address each of them in turn, and built up the mechanical design. Simultaneously we worked on the exterior appearance - the Industrial Design (ID). And we merge the two processes and come up with a final CAD model, and then work with our ODMs to manufacture it.

This schedule, for the 200R, which is a fairly simple case, took well over a year.

Imagine how long something like an 800D successor would take. A much larger, more complex type of chassis, with different materials, different feature sets and options, even better build quality. The size of a chassis like that means that the various tooling challenges need to be met and addressed.

The 800D took almost two years of development. The successor would have to take a similar timeline.

I will say this. There is a successor to the 800D. When we get close to launch, I will post some details. I might even give away a few of them here.

I will also say this - there is nothing like this on the market. We're not trying to duplicate anybody else's product. So the Case Labs, Mountain Mods, and Little Devil guys can rest assured their products will remain unique. The Cosmos II, TJ11 or Level 10 guys can also rest assured we're not trying to make a Corsair version of those cases.

The 800D was unique when it launched, as its successor will be.

I don't want to give a date of launch here because I want the product to be right, and I don't want the pressure to hit a launch date if it means launching an inferior product. If I tell you guys "December 15th" or something, and then I have to delay it to make sure that the door fits perfectly or the panel gaps on the front panel all line up, you guys would get pissed.

Anyway, just a peek into the dev process.
