Yeah but George, you didn't give people a middle ground option in regards to size and component support. It was either "as small as possible, HTPC," which for a lot of people means no dedicated GPU (or low profile at most)/low power systems, or on the other hand "full size GPU/PSU." What did you expect? And anyway, "full-size GPU/PSU" can be achieved in ~15L (see the SG08), but you used 28L to do it. Edit: true though the SG08 can't fit a dual rad; I would expect the minimum size to be closer to 20L to manage that.

That thread basically gave us what we want. Top 3 request. I know the Ncase does all three but i'm not sure if the Ncase can do full size psu, 240mm rad, 120/140mm rad, and full size gpu all at the same time.

Size - I want it to be small, but I want a full size GPU and full size PSU in there.
Refined, Aluminum" Design - Silverstone, Lian-Li, and Corsair Obsidian Series are more my speed.
Liquid Cooling - it'd be nice to be able to fit a 240mm radiator in this thing

Kind of disappointed on the graphic card limit. 290mm is a fairly large card but there are higher end cards that are 300mm and a bit more. As pointed out above the SG08 gave us smaller size and full length video card options without the top end being cut off.

Yeah, it can't (at the same time). It's 13L though, so.

"I want it to be small," I don't really think a box nearly 30x30x30 is anything like that.

I like this case, has everything no other ITX does for the price it offers. 240/280 rad on the side, 160 in the rear and maybe 120/140 in the front. Single bay res can be used.
Perfect to watercool.
Size is really not much bigger, just the height as that really do not matter for desk clearance.

Node 304: 250mm (W) x 210mm (H) x 374mm (D)
250D: 277mm (W) x 290mm (H) x 351mm (D)

Doubt you could get a dual 80mm rad in the back at the same time as a 240mm rad on the side. Also, it's only a 240 on the side, not a 280. Watercooling capability looks pretty similar to the Prodigy.

The case doesn't actually appear to have space for you to install a 30mm radiator in the side though. They showcase it with the H100/H100i rads+1 set of fans, and their shots of it make it abundantly clear you're not going to fit anything wider in there.

For a vid see this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AxaJVRayA8M
Notice how close the fans are to touching the motherboard's daughterboard.

Yeah is kinda big, I like it though. And as George said, it was what we asked (not me particularly, but the majority). It's already on my amazon's cart... Out of stock hahha biggrin.gif

I'm sorry Corsair but in my eyes you have too many things on one lineup... Spread out a bit and get a little more definition for your products. I mean it's honestly kinda ridiculous. So the Corsair xxxD has shiny steel and boxy design? While the T series is round and uses plastic? Pretty ridiculous reasons imo.
