@ Corsairgeorge:

Perhaps this has already been covered but did you design the original 600T and are you the one designing the new ones or does credit go to some other person in the Corsair company?

I am the case product manager and have been since day 1 of cases at Corsair, starting with the 800D.

The 600T, our second case, I spec'd out and managed the industrial design process on as well. We don't do our industrial designs in-house, we typically use outside design firms. For example, the latest Obsidian family (as well as some of our keyboards and mice) we used CRE8 Design, but for the original 600T we used Astro, who designed the original Xbox 360, some other cool stuff like the Nike Fuelband, etc. I also used Astro for the 230T, 730T, and 760T cases we just launched.

For this iteration of the design, we used BMW Designworks, and the goal was to create an evolution of the original 600T.

Basically "If the 600T was the sexiest case design of 2010, what would the 2015 edition look like?"

Fascinating! Thanks for the speedy reply, man. I can't wait to see what you guys pull off. Top the 600T? GOOD LUCK! tongue.gif

I have owned both the first 600T with solid panels, and the 600t white with window. The 600t is a fantastic case, and by far a gorgeous case in all respects to the exterior. I would keep the exterior as close to the same as possible, but would make a few minor adjustments like a larger side window, removal of the cheesy fan controller, and change the top panel. As far as the interior goes there are several things I would like to see:
A change in the 5.25 bays, possibly removable
More rad mounting options
More room behind the MB tray ( Each build in the 600t I have made has resulted in a poor fit on the side panel on that side)
more SSD mounting options
front RAD mounting options

I think removable 5.25 bays would be awesome, especially if Corsair were to sell a part on their website that would make the front all mesh (or whatever the front may be made of) to replace the bay covers if/when you remove all of your 5.25 bays. As for more room behind the MB tray, you might as well make enough room to put the power supply back there. Too much more space back there would make the case incredibly wide.
