I understand the frustration guys, but I won't budge on this. I'm not going to give a date before I'm 100% confident that date can be hit. I might be 98% confident today, but I've been burned in the past on that 2% and I won't do it.

Think how you'd feel if I said "This thing will ship on December 31st" and then we had a production issue that required re-tooling to January 30th, or delaying it a month. What if it was two months? Three? Four?

I won't be releasing any dates until I am 100% confident that units will be moving out doors.

I will say this, though:
We're very, very close to completion.
We'll be announcing a LOT of the details at CES - including pricing, specs, etc. That's about 3 weeks away.

If you need your system built today, by all means, buy yourself a different chassis. I wouldn't tell you to forego a month or two or whatever of enjoyment for our product. If you're happy with the specs of the Switch 810 of Phantom 820, then you probably won't buy this case anyway, as it's a completely different product aimed at a completely different market.

While those case are both full towers, this takes that definition to another place. This is more akin to a Super Tower style chassis.

To give you an idea, here are the dimensions:

1. Box shipping dimensions O/D SIZE (L x W x H) 755mm*360mm*800mm
2. Box weight 1.4KG (empty)
3. Unit dimensions SIZE : (L x W x H) 649.6mm*252mm*691.6mm
4. Unit weight 18.6KG

This case is unlike anything any other major manufacturer has done. It's big (but smaller than Cosmos II), it is optimized for watercooling AND aircooling, and all the money that it costs to build it was spent on function. We didn't add a fan controller or LED lighting. We didn't add a card reader. That stuff may make it into some of our other cases, but this case is designed with high quality materials, excellent build quality, and ridiculous levels of flexibility for cooling guys and hdd locations.

Undoubtedly, this is not the product for everyone. Most people will think it's too big, and too expensive.

This product was designed for the guy who looked at the 800D and went "It'd be nice if it was a bit bigger and had better cooling."

If you got rid of your 800D because it was too big or too heavy, this isn't the case for you. Other products on our roadmap will be more to your liking, but this one is a big, elegant piece of steel and aluminum furniture you build a computer in.

I like this case LOADS. Really like the combination of side window and lower mesh.

Now if I could only fell like I need a new case. rolleyes.gif

Well said. If that is the case I'll be glued to my screens during CES.

Exactly what I was looking for...

Bigger and hevier than 800D
No inflated price for worthless features
Better at air cooling
Piece of aluminium furniture/monolith

My faith in Corsair has been renewed with the H100i I installed last night so I'm looking forward to the CES reveal for sure. The majority of my cases have been Corsair and I would like to continue that trend with a 900D or whatever you decide to call it.

Well I'm glad you feel the same about flagship cases as I do. I wish other manufacturers felt the same way.

The 800D weight you have there is for the boxed product, the unit itself weighs closer to 37 lbs.

And that's not to denigrate the cases out there with LEDs or card readers or fan controllers. Those things can be very useful in certain products at certain price points. But I feel like at this type of product, anybody who spends $300+ on a case would NEVER be satisfied with a built-in fan controller or card reader.

I know I would want to make sure that my card reader was the fastest, most compatible on the market. I know my fan controller would have to be researched meticulously based on my build needs. I know my RGB LED lighting would need to be exactly the type and length that I chose for my current project.

That type of stuff is impossible to due with a customer this meticulous about their build. At around $150-$200, that stuff makes a lot of sense. Those guys are looking for a case that is "pre-modded" to have the features they want so they don't have to do it afterwards. They may not care that their card reader is SD only and really only reads up to 32GB cards and can't read SDXC or whatever. But I know that guys who buy $300 cases don't fill them up with the price/performance parts necessarily. They sit there and think about each element, because they care deeply about it, and want EXACTLY the part they want.

I once spent like three hours researching USB Flash Drives. Seriously.

My wife makes fun of me because I refuse to buy a coffee maker without looking at consumer reports and joining a bunch of coffee websites. I'm not even talking about an Espresso machine, just a regular coffee maker.

It's my personality.

Thanks for the heads up. I couldnt find it listed on your site or Newegg. Found that on a review site.

Hope that info help people understand it more.

Im just praying for room for two 480s. One for the CPU and one for the GPUs thumb.gif Dual loop FTW.
