Second that. I'm with rocket. The "new" 600T is a downer for me. Apart from the watercooling options. I still prefer my 600T. Like I said before. Why would we buy a case that has everything? You go to a thread with "high" end cases. All their builds are similar. You go to the 600T thread. All of us there have majorly different rig. Why is that? It's because the 600T is so far from perfect, it's perfect. ( make sense? )

The amount of combinations we all can do to the 600T is immense.

That's my opinion.

edit: don't get me wrong, I'm thinking of buying this case. I don't hate it. I'm just saying that i won't be using it on my first rig.

Ok maybe I shouldn't have used cars as comparisons, but thats what I think it can be expressed. The 760T/730T and the 230T don't shout sexiness like the 600T does. For me, the biggest reason for buying the 600T is because when I first looked at it, I fell in love. I didn't care about the lack of an internal USB 3.0 header, the horrendous headroom for a 240mm rad, the nonsensical noise from the circular honeycomb mesh grills, or the lack of watercooling support without mods.

I...no scratch that. WE bought the case because it was beautiful.

Copy that. I was exactly like that. I DID NOT know anything about computers back then. I just saw it. The silver curves just taunted me and made me buy it on the spot. Best £160 I spent to date I think. Out of all my gear the 600Tis the oldest thing I have

Does the 600T have ample room in the backside for all the cables like my 400R does? That would be extremely nice. thumb.gif

That it has. The 600T strong point is that it's massive. Including the space at the back.

It doesn't have a raised side panel but the gap between the mobo tray and side panel itself is enough, even for someone who has really bad cable management skills. Like myself.

Before looking at the improvements of the 600T I would like to address the positioning of the Graphite series in Corsair's lineup and targeted audience.

The Obsidian Series has a clear role. Being the most kick ass cases possible for consumers. Both the 800D and the 900D took this role, the 350D and 650D took that role for their respective form factors as well. The 550D is the odd man out, but as a whole the Obsidian has always been the premier case of Corsair's. I've always viewed the Graphite Series as the next down. The cases that scream Corsair quality, but aren't that Enthusiast chassis of the 800D/900D. They almost cater to people like OCN, computer geeks that want great quality and great performance, but don't need the liquid cooling options (preinstalled thumb.gif ). The Carbide series has always been a great band for your buck series, that's aimed at getting good quality cases for a nice price.

When looking at the Graphite series, it can go one of two ways: up or down (size wise).

If going up:
  • Handles. Those Handles are iconic of Corsair, and they make the case easy to work with. I want to see those on a full tower; bad.
  • Sound dampening. While Corsair does have the 550D, they don't have anything to compete with the bigger silent cases (Define XL is the first that comes to mind).
  • Improved fan controller. This might just be me, but I've felt fan controllers like Lamptrons to be a enthusiast level thing, Graphite is about bringing that quality to someone who isn't an enthusiast, so I good fan controller would fit here perfectly.
  • Lots of HDD space and can be changed into radiator space (think front of 900D).
  • Nice Window. I personally think the window of the 600T is the perfect size, but an acrylic side panel (everything is window, cept the handles) would be pretty sweet as an accessory.

If going down:
  • SSD mounts on back of motherboard tray. These are a MUST in any mATX/mini ITX case.
  • Sound dampening. A lot of people get smaller rigs to put them in populated areas, or for use as entertainment, they CANNOT be loud in either situation.
  • Hard drive space. Preferably radiator compatible, though in this form fact it wouldn't KILL the case for that not to be there.
  • Slim optical drive. A well placed optical drive (vertical if the case stands upright, could not get in the way of the hdd bays / radiator in the front if you place it strategically enough. I feel like this feature alone would make people want your case more, especially if it's for media use. (It doesn't have to be included--just there).

Let me address some concerns.

1) The 760T/730T are not replacements for the 600T. They are their own full tower line, and the big brother of the 230T.

2) The next-gen 600T product(s) will share inspiration from its curved design. That design heritage is alive and well in the future.

WOOO! Then I'll be eagerly waiting for the next 600T
