Yes I will say there will be a revision of every case next year. Everyone is going to want to offer USB 3 standard on their cases. If they do something cheesy about just changing the front Bezel that will be Pure Fail with all Caps.
What I think that is going to happen is they are going to lengthen the chassis by 2 inches and increase the Height to 2 inches or at least 1.4 inches. That will allow enough room on the top for a Water Radiator to fit on top. I also think that they will add one of our owns ideas of double 120 fans on the top for a double radiator at least. Then they will use our Idea of a false Floor over the PSU. It is also my idea that they will eliminate some or make more room in the case by moving the hard drives to another location. Staying with the basic theme in the front would be a Win in this case since the Case is a classic in the looks dept. Stay with the Military theme and maybe have a special edition with White black and grey Camo.
For the front bezel I would guess that they would keep two USB2 s and 2 USB3 s with the E Sata 3. Then I would say The power with a subdued green led to show power. and a push and turn Potentiometer to dim and turn off the lights in the box with the very first wire distribution point to add more lights or fans and still use the same button up front. A CPU Temp guage would be asking way too much but the rest of it is pretty solid.
Note.. This is the writers point of view and not the design intentions of Cooler Master or their R&D Department.
I love all the ideas. Two fans at top would be nice. You wouldn't believe how much air my little Destroyer pumps out that way! Ditto on the false floor and repositioning of the HDD bays for better air flow! Not sure about the
extra length and width
. It's perfectly balanced as is IMHO, making it much bigger would make it unwieldy. I guess you could do something to the handle to fix that....maybe two crossbars instead of just one? To much length and you'll need a couple of poles and palanquin bearers tho! Changes like that would make it a new case altogether to me. Storm Ranger! (Not that I wouldn't buy it
Servants! To the LAN party!!!)
Digital camo? Uh yup! I'd pay for that!Edited by DireLeon2010 - 12/31/10 at 7:06pm
