The 650D isn't an 800D replacement - it's a mid-tower case. The new fans will be in the white 600T as well (but in the white 600T they'll be white LED versions).

Beautiful case, but bad price point.

Definitely

Thanks George!

The case is lovely, I don't mind paying for a quality, well built, good looking case. Has features I want, space I want, cooling I want, looks I want, all going for it smile.gif

Is the fan controller the same? I've heard of folks who complain there's only really like 75% and 100% fan speed.. nothing much lower.
I've read some of the same complaints, and really don't understand the problem. The 200mm fans are specified to be 800 RPM, so if the controller slows them by 25% they'd be at 600 RPM. I don't see how people would want the fans turning even slower? They seem plenty slow enough (about 600 RPM) at the low range in my system.

Aside from that, the Corsair 650D page does mention a three-mode controller. Whether it has more adjustment range than continuous mode controller, it didn't say.

I have not found a reference to "better" fans on the 650D, from Corsair. Must have missed it.

Sorry George, 650D Mid-tower, my mistake.

As for the latches, they're necessary with the method of closing the side panel. Otherwise we'd have had to go for a much more expensive solution - we re-used a good portion of the 600T skeleton for this case.

As for the new fans, they're roughly 1000 RPM (vs 700-800 RPM for the 600T fans).

The fan controller is a three mode switch (high, medium, low) that hides in the top SATA dock area.

That's the initial plan right now. This could all change by the time this launches in a couple months.

It must be difficult to get all these facts aligned. wink.gif

I just copied this from the press section of the Corsair site;
Quote:
Both the Corsair Gaming Audio Series HS1A and the special edition white Corsair Graphite Series 600T will be available this month from Corsair's worldwide network of authorized distributors and resellers. The HS1A has an MSRP in the U.S. of $79.99, and the white 600T has an MSRP of $159.99.Both products come with a 2-year warranty and, like all Corsair products, are backed by Corsair’s highly regarded customer service and technical support.

I've gotta clean up the cable management a bit, but there you have it! smile.gif I really like this case, although a few questions for fellow owners:

1) When things start to heat up, such as when operating a cpu/gpu benchmark tool or playing games or doing anything intensive on your hardware that would cause extra heat, do you notice your 600T making "cracking" or "popping" noises? At first it was really alarming to me, but now that it happens pretty much every time I'm about 10 minutes into playing a game, I'm starting to get used to it. Could something be wrong with my case or some other piece of hardware?

2) The link in the OP to the side window mod doesn't work, but I'm very interested in having a side window for my case. Any idea what price range we'd be talking about here? Also, will this end up having any effect on system temperatures or should it not make a difference?

Thanks! biggrin.gif
