Looks even better than the concept pictures smile.gif
I agree, considering how people that go E-ATX with 240+260 rads are more likely to spend $250+ on a case than someone with mATX and one or two 240 rads.
Well If you go AMD... unless you want garbage VRM or an APU you need ATX tongue.gif

And X79 Intel mATX is not as good as X79 ATX/E-ATX

Agreed with the last part. One of the main reasons people go X79 is for multi-GPU setups which m-atx can't do as well.

George, you are taking feedback the wrong way. Unfortunately, many people simply have no clue.

I think there are two minor issues with this case. First one is the lack of inverse ATX. Second one being pretty ugly top vent.

Other than that, while it may seem simple, you guys made a fantastic case for enthusiasts. Once builds start showing up, people will realize that.

I think you guys should really post pics of a custom WC build (but please, no CSQ) to illustrate the point.

A couple of questions, if I may.

When will the case become available for sale?

How much internal space (length) does the case have at the bottom without PSU and fans?

How much space there is left for radiator and fans at the front after installing GTX 690?

Thank you.

If we'd launched a $200 aluminum and mesh Micro ATX (effectively how much a shrunken 900D-style case would cost) then most would be complaining it was way overpriced.

I hate to say this, but I designed the 350D with its features and price point heavily researched. A lot of things (5 slots instead of 4, for example) were enthusiast requests or demands.

I think we'll sell quite a few - and I understand if it's not your cup of tea, no offense taken. But let's not pretend that it's a failure because it's not carved out of granite or something. It hasn't even been announced yet.

I'm sure that it will sell well, especially at the $99.99 price point that I was seeing pre-orders for on Newegg, but why do you guys produce a premium expensive case at the top of the Obsidian series in the 800D/900D and then try to greatly reduce the price of all the rest of the cases in the same Obsidian line? Not everyone wants to buy a case the size of a small car to sit on their desk but at the same time that doesn't mean we don't want the same features, materials, and build quality as we would get if we bought the large 900D.

Why can't we get a mATX and mid tower ATX versions of the 900D from the Obsidian series that has the exact same features and build materials for those of us enthusiasts that have been taking our business elsewhere to Silverstone, Case Labs, ect and then for all the people that are looking for a cheaper version release new cases under a different line such as your Graphite, Vengeance, and Carbide, ect that look nearly the same as the new premium Obsidian cases but with reductions in features and build materials to keep the price points lower.

Yes man I love you (no homo) but you understand all the things I think are problems if they change the top fan grill and having an inverse atx it will be a instant buy for me forget the TJ08-E, Corsair needs to make it elegant that is all I ask for.

Corsair should have a poll on their site on how they should tier their things or what their priority should be with new cases. What you have said about having a car on your desk is right it is a bit much but having a smart car that has the same features of the car is a great idea even if you pay a premium.
