Corsair Mini ITX? What do you want? - Page 129

Poll Results: Which features are most important to you in a Mini ITX case?

This is a multiple choice poll
  • 7% of voters (92)
    Size - the smaller the better. I don't need a full GPU, I want a HTPC-style box.
  • 77% of voters (1009)
    Size - I want it to be small, but I want a full size GPU and full size PSU in there.
  • 11% of voters (154)
    Air cooling - I want lots of fan options, top, sides, back, front.
  • 31% of voters (411)
    Air cooling - I want it to perform well out of the box but we don't need to perforate every single panel.
  • 25% of voters (329)
    "Sleek, Modern" Design - The BitFenix Prodiigy, NZXT Phantom Series, Corsair 600T and other cases with unique designs are my favorite.
  • 49% of voters (646)
    "Refined, Aluminum" Design - Silverstone, Lian-Li, and Corsair Obsidian Series are more my speed.
  • 34% of voters (454)
    Quiet - I want this thing whisper quiet.
  • 45% of voters (596)
    Liquid Cooling - it'd be nice to be able to fit a 240mm radiator in this thing
  • 7% of voters (97)
    HDD Capacity - I want to make a RAID or NAS box, so I want at least four 3.5" drive bays
  • 36% of voters (477)
    HDD Capacity - I just plan on running an OS and a storage drive - two or three drive bays is fine as long as there's native SSD support.
  • 18% of voters (246)
    Portability - handles and whatnot are really important to me. So is overall weight and durability.
  • 19% of voters (255)
    Scent - I like all my computer products to be scratch and sniff. Please make this smell like Lilacs.
  • 2% of voters (32)
    Other - posted in thread.

In referring to hardware companies, it's all R&D if I'm not mistaken. Cost of prototypes, engineering samples, testing, etc. A car doesn't magically appear after 1 meeting with the CEO's, lots and lots of planning has to go into each one built.

A car like the Zonda requires "special tooling" because every single part (aside from the benz engine) is bespoke and handmade, whereas Camry's are stamped out in bulk. Not many Zonda's get sold, and Camry's are one of the best selling vehicles in the world. Even though the "design" and "concept" cost may be the same, the actual production cost are on opposite sides of the spectrum.

Sorry, I'm a car guy.

I just wanted to say that the benz engine used is hand made and bespoke specifically for Pagani. It is an AMG engine after all!
