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.
The ideal modular case with everything you list above will not cheaper than $700. Someone will make it for you.

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.

I just think companies are cheeky gets for asking £225 for a computer case. Where do you get off charging that much? Also since when did I claim to have the capability of making a pc case? As a consumer im entitled to a opinion and mine is that this pc case will be overly expensive.

Some rep you are im glad I dont like NZXT, because if I did I would think long and hard about purchasing an NZXT product if they're represented by you.

Pretty sure they charge what they know they can get from the consumer.. if the 800d didn't sell at whatever the price was they wouldn't of sold it. The market will determine the price, the only case even remotely similar in size and build quality is most like a CaseLabs case, those are 100% custom made and cost $400+. If you think its too much, you don't have to buy it. thumb.gif

Where do companies get off charging what they do? Well, for instance, you have to pay a designer, you have to pay for tooling costs, you have to pay for pre-production/prototype units, you have to pay for parts, materials, labor, shipping, marketing. This isn't free. You can't magically wave your hand and have a case created. You also have to consider a company can't sell a product at a loss. So, when you factor in all of the cost for actually producing a product, yes, the pricing is fair when you consider a company needs to make money in order to produce products in the future

You're definitely entitled to your opinion, but everything is priced in this industry accordingly, and that's a fact, not an opinion.

I personally cant see why one decent case costs £100, but another costs more than double. Has more than double the research and effort gone into making the second case? Probably not.

From the looks of it it seems to be that there is some sort of a "super structure" made of steel (and seems SUPER THICK by the looks of the last picture), and that the front panel is made of aluminum. It has a very unique look because the aluminum seems to be on an island, like floating in the middle of the steel structure.

I guess that the last picture confirms that the super structure keeps the same design both at the front and back of the case, as you can see that on the back the fan grill is, like with the front, floating around. I wonder why there are no holes to mount the fans... at first I was thinking that the mark just below the rivet would mean something, but it would make no sense (as it would look terrible) to have a fan in the middle of the grill and not centered... although if a thick rad with push-pull fans can be used there must be a clearance no smaller than 100m (around 4 inches, for the weird-metric system folks biggrin.gif ).

The one that intrigues me, though, is the second one. If the filter truly goes where it shows to be, it indicates that that part should be outside the case (facing outside, that is), but the aligining of the fan (based on the black screw we see) seems awkward, if only because why make the grill part bigger than the fan itself. Keep in mind that such screw would be tedious to remove if it was on the bottom of the unit. Other than that, the angle of the photo is deceiving, as I'm not sure if the part that you see underneath is the same part or if its the floor itself. It might be an HDD case, as there is something weird looking on the far top of the picture or might be something totally different biggrin.gif

Because not all cases are created equally. Corsair has their platform, NZXT has theirs, Antec has theirs, Lian Li theirs. etc, etc.

If every case had the same dimensions, was made from the same material, had the exact same features, then yes, you'd be correct. However, if you were to compare a 50 dollar case to a 200 dollar case, the 200 dollar case is much more versatile, functional, has more features and typically has a better build quality and materials.

I just dont agree with the high price thats all. Maybe its because I pay over the odds tax in my country I dont know. I would be happy to pay £150 for a case, but £300 I cant justify that.

I'm stoked for this case. Putting aside all my money for it even though I'm totally going to be the only dude air cooling in it tongue.gif

That VAT is a killer. On cases, I personally would think twice before buying a case over $200.00 bucks. When in the market last time, I was looking at the cosmos 2, and ended up with the 810 as that had the best bang for the buck ($119 after rebate and I just received it yesterday). I would not mind paying a premium for a case as long as I as a customer feel that a certain case deserves a certain price tag I will gladly pay it (and each customer is different).
