Your telling me dude. Like I said the 800D has a WOW factor. I had a Zalman-Z case, which is really nice, but the more I seen the 800D the more I wanted it. I would go look a pics here and others places wishing I had it. For me no case I have ever seen had a WOW factor like the 800D does. After wishing hoping, and wanting it I just gave up and bought it. Now that I have it, I can say that it is by far the best case I have ever built/owned.

I finally gave up and bought the 800D as well, I fell in love with it the second I laid my eyes on it, I've got to pick up a molex to 3pin fan adapter so I can hide those radiator fans up top =/

So, I just packed up my HAF932 I got on Sunday for my upcoming build and ordered the 800D from the egg (cheapest I could find with rebate/free shipping) I knew I should have just got the 800D from microcenter for $227 instead of the HAF D:

After looking at the HAF for about 3 hours it just started looking uglier and uglier, so I got the 800D and H50 off the egg until I can get a real loop going or at least mod the H50.

Feel better already

Here is an update:



I will be redoing the water cooling next week along with the PCIe cable. I think I will be swinging the rad around, changing the pumps out and changing the loop order. I need to stop messing around otherwise I am going to run out of tubing, .

It's about as good as how much you want to work with it. The case itself has received some negative feedback as far as air cooling goes, but from people who actually deal with the case it seems to be blown out of proportion.

There is a lot you can do to mitigate this "issue" or how I like to see it, just make it better than it already is You can start by adding some good fans to get the air moving a bit better in the case, and install a bay cooler as well. I just went through the same issue you did so if you need any help let me know.

Check out the Obsidian 700D.

Corsair will soon introduce the Obsidian 700D, a new full-tower ATX case that seems to have most of the interior features of the 800D, which was released last year. The case features six HDD/SSD drive bays, five 5.25" drive bays and one floppy bay. To keep your hardware cool the Obsidian 700D uses a three-zone cooling method, there are holes designed for cable management and vents have been pre-drilled to fit a triple 120mm fan radiator.

The case measures 24" (H) x 24" (L) x 9" (W) / 609 mm x 609 mm x 229 mm, weighs 34.8 lbs / 15.8 kg, and makes use of steel for the internal frame, and aluminum for its panels. There's room for three 140 mm and up to four 120 mm fans. There are eight expansion slots, so it makes room for a double-slot video card seated on the bottom-most slot of the motherboard. There's room for ITX, m-ATX, ATX, and EATX motherboard types, the motherboard tray has a cutout at the CPU socket area for easy handling of certain types of coolers. The front-panel has four USB 2.0 ports, a FireWire port, and the FP audio connectors.

Pricing is unknown, but it's likely a bit cheaper than the Obsidian 800D, which ships for around $290.
