Lol, that's precisely the point. They STILL make the elegant and simple cases. These are just additional options...

Is it possible for a mod to hide this thread from George before nitwittery causes him to leave the forums? I like having him around.

For $60.... Yeah. I'm pulling the trigger on the Spec-03 for sure in the very near future. Not sure what I like more about it, the looks or the price. redface.gif

Another build.. yay...

Ok after seeing the press release photos I think the spec 1 looks real nice, when are these cases supposed to be available?

Though it'll be sold worldwide, the Carbide SPEC series cases will be primarily focused in lower-cost regions where the options were really, really bad for enthusiasts.

No disrespect meant, but Corsair's smooth, clean design lines are what make your cases highly desirable.

I don't really understand this comment. If you're talking about your own preference or that of some group, it's something Corsair hears a lot, and judging by the post you quoted and others, they get that. If you're implying that they're catering to some insignificant market here, that's probably not true (read below, for starters).

For reference, you may also want to look at some of the previous postings from the same person you are quoting, if you haven't already (especially #3).
#1, #2, #3.

On second thought, maybe you already know all this and are just stating a preference for its own sake. Oh well.
post #148 of 168
Axon I do get what you're saying, buuut again (and you probably know this) different strokes for different folks haha.

Now if they came in and said 'hey this is our next top-of-the-line series, deal with it' then yeah I could see your dissatisfaction with them.

But it's nice to know that Corsair will accommodate for more than us 1%, at least in my opinion.

This thread just seriously made me question the maturity of this whole website/forum. If you dont like it then give constructive criticism or suggestions, ideas for making a case that more suits your needs or interests or of people with similar tastes. Or better yet dont say anything at all. i tend not to.

Back on topic: I like the spec 02, it doesnt really fit my particular needs but knowing corsair build quality i wouldn't hesitate to refer a friend, also was wondering if corsair plans on releasing a AIO water cooler with expand-ability (like the swiftech and cooler master) that would be compatible with the NZXT G10 so i could water cool my cpu and two gpus with daisy chained h100's or what have you.
post #150 of 168
like the SPEC 2, I think it has nice clean lines but still an aggressive look. no nonsense cases, not to big but big enough for a mid level gaming build.

to everyone saying "ew" or that they don't like them, look at the whole range corsair has currently and you are likely to find a case you like. these cases obviously are targeted at a particular market, and corsair being a successful company knows how to cater for these markets.

I'm glad there is a company that consults with the market, especially the enthusiasts ie Us, and tries to deliver what we want, and I believe they do that very well. Even if we do sometimes have a winge and moan, they always come back and try to give us what we want.
