[MC/Corsair] Corsair 900D "Godzilla" unveiled - Page 75

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.

As a comparison to a big case the Xigmatek Elysium has dimensions of (W)230 x (H)618 x (D)663mm. The Corsair looks to engulf the Xigmatek. Awesome!

This is Overclock.net. Not "Underclockwithcheapassgear.net". Money is money, you can't take it with you, and there's a huge market of enthusiasts that could really care less about a few hundred bucks on something they are going to mod and make their own.

But hey, if you think you could design, produce, market, and ship a case with premium features for under 100 bucks while not only making a return on your investment but a little bit for profit, be our guest. I'd like to see that.

my guess is it will be somewhere around the price of the cosmos 2. from what i have seen thus far, i wouldnt be surprised if it was a little more than the cosmos though as it seems like it will be a better case. i may end up selling my cosmos 2 and getting one of these if i like what i see when all the info is available. if not, i may down size to something like a 600T

I don't think you or george would like to see that as it would put your jobs in danger would it not? (Rival company comes in and can offer all you can for less cost.)

The problem here is that there are very few products that are in-between a 800D and a custom ordered Caselabs M8 (for example). The 900D will perhaps fill in that gap, and I think it will succeed as long as they price it accordingly.

 

Until rival companies can come  out with something that competes with the 900D, the latter will prevail in its respective market.

I want a case that's completely modular in design. Like the front of the case. We should be able to have optical drives anywhere down the entire front of the case, I mean maby my case is on a shelf or a desk and I want the dvd/blu-ray drive on the bottom instead of the top of the case. And we should be able to put our hard drives anywhere down the front, or cover the front with fans down the entire front. And it should be compatible with 120mm or 140mm, or even 200mm. These cases are over 200mm wide so why shouldn't I be able to cover it in 200mm fans. We should be able to put the reservoir anywhere down the front of the case. Fan controllers, anywhere down the front. Just basically, anything we put in the front of a case should be place-able at any point down the front of the case.

Ditto with the top, bottom, back, and sides.

The case should have the option of putting the power supply at the bottom or the top, or even at the front. Who knows where someone might want to stick it, or where we might like to place it in the future.

The mother boards orientation should be optional. The people who like the vertical type setup that lian-li (I think?) does should have the option of setting their case up like that.

And dust filters. Every opening should have the option of putting a removable dust filter on it. You don't even need to include the filters with the case you sell, just have the case have clips, or brackets, or grooves, or whatever that you can slide filters you buy separately (if you want them) into. And I mean every opening. top. bottom, front, back, both sides. Everyone is different and wants to set up their case differently. There are no openings on a case that can't or shouldn't be used as intakes.

Ideally the case itself would be modular. Buy the basic case body of the size you want, and then add on the front bezel you want, the side panels you want, the top piece you want, the interior cage setup you want, the motherboard tray you want. So I could build a case how I want. With rubber feet slightly raising it off the floor. with a top piece that doesn't have any hardware (buttons, harddrive slots, fan mesh, ect) and is just a solid sheet of metal so I don't spill a drink down into my computer. With a handle. A handle on the top like the coolermaster storm trooper would be awesome. With hinged doors I can remove, with mesh to have a fan on the backside of the cpu cutout, and fans over the video cards, but no window, and with sound dampening foam on the inside. With a plain and elegant front that runs the entire height of the case, with just one optical drive in place, another slot taken up by power/reset and usb ports, and maby a fan controller in another, and then the rest just plain mesh with fans underneath.

ug... I kinda got off topic here didn't I, apologies. I started out just wanting to say that I wanted the option of putting removable dust filters over any opening on the 900D, and then my train of thought just kind of wandered around. Well... I'm sure the 900D will be a good case. It won't be my ideal modular case, but then nobody is going to build my ideal case. ah well.
