yeah 450D looking very nice. But I still like the solid front panel look instead of the mesh tongue.gif

I will be air-cooling my build, so I need the front to be mesh for better air intake, plus, I like how the mesh front looks.

I will say this, though, I REALLY wish Corsair (others too) would offer us a few options on their cases. If a case is sold with a solid front piece but I wanted it to be mesh, I'd like to be able to buy a mesh front piece. I'd also like to see different designs (rounded/squared) of the front offered. Or, if a case is sold without a side window, I'd like to be able to buy a side window for it. I just think it would be nice to have these type of options. I dunno, seems like a great idea to me.

Anyway, tomorrow is the 25th, hopefully the 450 will be offered for sell tomorrow. I am seriously considering it. Deciding on a case has been a kick in the kiwi fruits for me! biggrin.gif

I was hoping would be more compact like the 350D.

Yay,
The NDA is over and I can finally talk about the Corsair 450D on forums. thumb.gif

I was sent one to test in early February and I've had my secondary system installed in it for most of that time.
I killed that motherboard though a few weeks back and haven't had any real time to be able to swap my main build out of my Air 540 to give the case a real work out!

Any questions you guys have that I could answer?

Can you use a standard size PSU, a 240 mm rad in the bottom and a 240/280 mm rad at the front simultaneously?

It'd be very tight where the two radiators meet in the front. Depending on the thickness and fans used...but probably not.

For that setup a 750D is probably more your speed.

I would not be getting this case, George, it was mostly a curious question based on some reviews on YouTube where they mentioned you can simultaneously fit in all these. It was the same case when the 900D reviews showed up and we were told one could fit in a 360mm at the front and a 480 + 240 mm setup at the bottom simultaneously which we all know is not possible now. Thanks for confirming this!

Looking at the review from TTL, it also seems impossible to fit in a regular sized PSU and a 240mm rad at the bottom as well.

It's tight, that's for sure, but some smaller PSUs like RM450/550, etc, should work.
