IMHO reviews are only good to a certain point. That's why I go to places like Frys where I can hold, move, and play with the case before I buy it. I understand that not everyone has this ability, but there's no reason that anyone on this thread should be bashing the case since none of you have even seen it in the flesh. (save you George) That's like saying that because I dislike the seeds in oranges they are a horrible fruit for anyone to eat and should be fixed.

No one bashed anything, for the record. I just said "based on reviews" I had only seen 2 reviews at that point.

Obviously it would be unfair to compare a polycarbonate side panel to a steel one. But, polycarbonate is what bullet proof glass is made of, so there definitely is potential for rigidity. Maybe just a little thicker material?

The mention of the flimsy MB tray in the HardwareCanucks video review didn't change my confidence in the quality of this case in the least. I mean, honestly, that guy was yanking on it like an ape lol

I agree with George that the inclusion if a dust filter on exhaust fan mounts would be pointless, but at the same time maybe not everyone uses the roof to vent. I personally do - no filter needed. Front dust filter would have been much-appreciated.

I don't really know what u guys expect, if you talk about a flimsy structure of the case.
For me it is an awesome case with a new "open" design that extended the options for enthusiasts who want to show their builds.

It's a case that will be stationary under my table (hopefully in april rolleyes.gif) and I'm not going to throw it like a football or something else so why it should be like that tanky?
So I don't have seen a video yet where it does collapse because of "heavy" the components. For that reason it's a nice case that does what it must.

If you like that entire new design that costs 2 years of development, go and get one, but I can't understand the point of a flimsy structure.
That is my point. So well done Corsair.
PS: I hope there will be optional dustfilters for the top and a better availability for the Lighting Node in the future in EU biggrin.gif
(sry if i did some grammar mistakes)

It should be sitting on the floor or a desk completely free of any object putting absurd pressure on it to the point where it displays loss of structural integrity. After seeing the reviews on YouTube, I am securely confident in my assumption that the case is sound. Like George even stated, it uses the same motherboard platform tray the 750D uses. That's the heart of the of structure right there, the added 45 degree elbow joints on all four corners of case show they are marking sure it is fine.

I have full faith in the case and its architecture, with the family being in the construction business, even they agree that the rigidity of the design is more than adequate. Wait until NZXT makes a 75% plastic one then we can compare flimsiness.

I expect it to be nothing like my Cooler Master HAF X in terms of sheer tankiness, but surely it's built fine. I'm sure George would be more than happy to take care of any defects or abnormalities in the case that you may receive. Call me fanboying over a product I don't yet posses if you please, but don't judge the frickin' thing on the way it appears.

It was even shown at CES with a fully loaded RoG IV with 4 R9 280x's in it. If it can support that without popping a bracket, I think we can all sleep peacefully night knowing George isn't screwing us with a market "test" case.

TL;DR - It''s certainly not flimsy, sit on your's and tell me the results. I want to be surprised...

Exactly what I said. Its going to be on my desk, completely free of anything putting any strain on it like it will be for 99% of other users. I guess I am just missing the part or not understanding why my chassy has to be built like a WWII Era King Tiger. Did the Antec LANBoy ever catch this much flak or have we just been spoiled for so long with solid steel bullet proof cases that we think it is somewhat mandatory now for it to be able to withstand getting ran over by a truck.

For me the flex in the chassis has put me off and I was hugely excited for this case. I live in a very small house where my rig cannot be out permanently and has to be hidden away at night.
I really wanted to fix one of these up with acrylic tubing but that is just not gonna happen if I'm having to shift if about every day sadsmiley.gif it's just not gonna work for me.

I might have to go for the 750 I was originally after or just end up keeping the 540 I have the rig in now. I could cry at this point.

Im a 750D owner and will be switching to the 760T when it is released.

The dust filter on the top should not be an issue if you have proper positive airflow throughout the case. Set the from as your intake, and the roof as your exhaust. Easy as. If the look bothers you, color the screw heads white and call it a day.

I've personally had the Obsidian 800D, 750D, 650D, and currently on the Vengeance C70. I love how all of these cases have had more than enough room to work in and cable management has been a dream. I came from a HAF-X and HAF 912, which don't get me wrong, they were great cases, just not as great as the Corsair ones that I've had. I've been wanting to do a watercooling build for a while and with the huge window on this thing I'll be able to show it off no problem.

Anyone planning on adding some Decmifilters to the front panel and/or bottom intake? I think this is a good option.

The front panel has a built-in dust filter already.

cool. wasn't sure how effective it is from some of the reviews I have seen. If it works well then yea no need for additional filtration as that may choke the airflow among other reasons. I think I'll do one on the bottom for sure as I am putting in a 120mm fan intake. can't wait to start building.
