I understand where you're coming from, but size does help for aircooling.

The air volume in the case plays a significant part in how well a case can aircool. Smaller cases need more airflow, while larger cases can usually get away with lower airflow, and thus lower noise levels.

Think of it like boiling water. Set two burners on your stove to maximum, and put two different sized pots of water on it, one with about 3 cups, and the other with 2 gallons. Which one will boil first, assuming their surface area is the same?

Case cooling is similar. The reason the 800D did a fairly good job with single GPU and overclocked CPU cooling with a single 140mm intake fan was that the air volume inside the case was being exhausted by the 140mm exhaust and the mesh top before it could fully heat up. When you add a second GPU, though, you basically needed to turn the top into intakes, which actually gave very good results, but people never like using the top as an intake, despite it being exceptionally effective in this situation.

The HAF X is a great example of this, actually. It is large and has a lot of air volume, and then it has a good amount of airflow as well, so it was one of the best aircooling cases in the world when it came out. If you could fit that exact same amount of airflow in a HAF 912, though, the cooling wouldn't be quite as good, since the air volume can't absorb as much heat.

The 900D was designed with this in mind, but will end up giving you the choice between ridiculous levels of airflow or exceptional silence and moderate cooling. Or to do some ridiculous watercooling build.

I just hope this is teased soon so I have an option other than the cosmos II. I have picked out now. Nothing else I really like other than the cosmos and the 800d but the cosmos seemed bigger and it had better cable management as I do not want any cables showing. But if 900 comes out and I can put as many rads in it as I have read I will want this if it has the drives turned to the side also...

That actually makes sense george, good post

This is why I like you George, telling someone their wrong without bein a tool! wink.gif
I do agree with you on big = better for air cooling. I just feel that if one was stuck air cooling, they could get away with a cheaper case and still be fine rolleyes.gif

Everybody was a beginner, and then got more and more experience. Nobody knows everything about everything - I know almost nothing about SSDs, for example. It just so happens that I have been working on cases and cooling for years, so I have a little more experience than some, and have found surprising things.

As for air cooling, you could easily get away with a cheaper case, but not everybody who wants a big case plans to watercool. Some people just have tons of other hardware or want a case that's easy to work in.

Though the goal is to make our cases flexible enough for most users that may want to consider watercooling, or those who prefer high-end aircooling.

I'm waiting for pictures and specs before I decide if I want this or a STH10.

It's obviously an Obsidian series chassis, so that means something for the external design (black, aluminum front, monolith-style Industrial Design), and Obsidian is our high-end of cases. The 800D has an MSRP of $299, and was our previous flagship.
I can give a few details:
1. It's larger than 800D.
2. It's going to cost more than 800D.
3. It will be competitive with other manufacturer's "Super Tower" chassis price-wise.
5. It's very heavy, and not designed to be easily portable.
6. There's nothing like it, feature wise, from a major competitor.
7. There was a thread posted in the Case forum called "How would you change the 800D?" Look at the winning votes there and the ideas. Many of those are incorporated in one form or another into the 900D.
8. Godzilla has relatives.






I need something that's at least somewhat portable or moveable. It's a pain in the ass to fill my reservoir, let alone doing everything else. I'm glad you guys fixed the air cooling issue (now I can actually use dual GPU non-reference cards), but the weight will be a huge negative in my book. Could it at least have wheels or something?? I get it, wheels can look a bit tacky, but it's so much more functional than a ton of dead weight that's just sitting there. I have a ton of Corsair products (800D, AX1200, RAM, had an H50), but I'm not really happy about my 800D. I never really got to use it, even though I bought it 2 years ago. Shelling out another $300+ dollars this quick is a little disappointing for me.
