Is there any chance there will be a white or gunmetal version of this case?

Re-posting so the Corsair rep sees my ultra important opinions of this case lachen.gif

I like the design but I kinda wish they would have just made a better designed HAF XB and put the "chambers" flat and stacked so CPU heatsinks and video cards aren't hanging and causing stress on the motherboard.

I also like how they punched out the fan slots, using a wire grill is much quieter than using the honey comb crap that is found on most cases. The styling on the outside of the case is pretty much a fail IMO though. Having two sections is nice but you don't need to make it look like the two sections are two cases glued together by making the design different on both sides.

Well, I like it. I pre-ordered mine off of Amazon yesterday.

Definitely getting this, seems to have all the features I'm looking for:

  • Less cumbersome to move around than a full tower (I have a HAF-X at the moment)
  • Supports E-ATX
  • Supports a 240mm cooler

It's a little annoying it only fits 2x 3.5" drives, but I guess it's a reason for me to start consolidating and removing all the extra drives. tongue.gif

I don't like the HAF XB and happy they went with doublewide style (since danger den is gone!), but it would of been a perfect case if they did the 90degree rotated mobo, but I think Silverstone has that patented tho

The new Lian Li D600 looks similar. Exterior looks much better but instead of $140 they will probably want $300 or some crap like that.

Yeah, I would rather have a Lian LI, but yu are right it will probably be $300. I am not paying that for a case again.

i kind of get the feeling the d600 will be closer to the $250 mark than the $300 mark, with the d8000 being $330 at the moment

but yea i think we shouldn't be talking about another case in this thread, have to give corsair it's due on this case
