I must be seeing things then but its all good.

I wouldn't think it would be since its been out for a few years now and its replacement is just around the corner.

GL with your build.

You might need a few more.

I'm now starting to feel like cartman when he was waiting for the wii. I'm really curious to see what this thing looks like at the end of the day.

Its not exactly a popular case. I doubt Corsair is selling that many of them. In fact I was convinced that the case was discontinued. I'm still not sure that it isn't.

The 800D is not discontinued, and it still sells fairly well for $300 cases. That's a testament to its build quality and fit and finish, as well as its look, as much as anything else. In the over 3 years since we launched it, more cases have come out with different features.

For example, at the time, the 800D was one of the few cases compatible with a triple 120mm radiator on top out of the box. It was also one of the few to blend steel and aluminum the way it did, using the best aspects of each (steel for strength and rigidity, aluminum for appearance and aesthetics), and was the first case I've ever seen to offer the rubber grommeted cable routing channels (now standard on just about every case) and a four-bay hot swap dock with built-in SSD compatibility (a rarity at that time).

We've updated the hot-swap for SATA 6Gbps and the front I/O for USB 3.0, but things like an 8th or 9th slot, or dual socket motherboard compatibility would have required major tooling changes, so now there are cases in our own line-up that offer some of those features.

The 900D addresses all those things and more. We looked at the 800D, and asked "What's one step above that?" and then when we had defined that, we said "And what would we do if we wanted to kill THAT project with something better?" and we went further.

At the end of last year we had a prototype of a modified 800D that we thought about launching. It had a unique swing-out side panel 240mm radiator mount (that slotted into the window, which would have been shaped to fit nicely), 9 slots, and a top 480 mount. We ended up killing it and starting from scratch because it just didn't do enough different and we felt like by the time we had that thing done, it would be better to start from the ground up and design what we REALLY wanted.

So then we went nuts,.

If I can find the prototype 800DV2 tomorrow I might take some photos so you can see what we never launched. It's kind of interesting, but ultimately just not enough.

That sounds pretty cool. I'd love to see shots of cases/products that never made it.

I was driving in my car today thinking how well designed so many of Corsair products have been in the last 3 years. It just really a step above in so many ways. Currently the most annoying thing to me about all PSU manufacturing is the colored cables I know the purpose of it and why its that way. But I'm just tired of seeing it, in my builds. A few months ago I bought a TX850M for a friend I was little disappointed about the rainbow wires on the 24pin, CPU and two PCIE even on a modular PSU. I would really like to see all black wires all the way down to the CX line (I'm a dreamer) I'll probably keep buying Corsair PSU anyway. But if the budget PSU had black wires I would have no choice but to buy them for every build I do. I probably buy about 12 Power Supplies a year for various builds. Well I'm going way off topic here. I love my 700D with window side panel and modded 240 rad. But last few months I have a third radiator out side my case sitting on the shelf under my PSU. I guess I'm ready to see how this looks maybe I can finally house everything in the case smile.gif

I just wish it was ready for a Holiday launch. It would be at the top of my Xmas list. I think I'd still keep my 800d though

I just don't see your beef with the 800D lol or why you care so much.
To the people that don't mind spending the money and appreciate the quality of the 800D then that's its core audience i guess. I was late to the party buying a 800D and i never complained about a lack of airflow because it's full of expensive WC equipment..Every 1 is entitled to there own opinion and what they think is worth X amount of $ and what isn't but i just cant agree with you.

All I have to say on this, is I think you are a terrible terrible person. Probably the kind that beats puppies. And yes, I say these things out of my own bias, and no, I do not care.

Now I'm torn between finishing upgrading my TJ07 with ColdZero parts or waiting on the 900D.
