600T top, 650D bottom.

Well, If I'm correct, 600T = Steel & Plastic.

650D = Steel and Aluminum (faceplate).

650D has better cooling performance (according to corsairgeorge), plus, it looks cooler lol.

....Anyone else see this case as, how would I say it, a FAIL?

For the same price point, you can get a good Lian Li or a Cooler Master ATCS 840.

Then there's the issue with the liquid cooling. While the 800D was "good" for water, there was barely any fans blowing in cool air. Now, this case would have been pretty good with the massive front intake, but they chose to kind of screw it over by only making it have room for a slim radiator.

In all honesty, I think this was a good case that was ruined by some very small, yet vital components for the enthusiast that Corsair is targeting.

I'm looking forward to Corsair coming out with something better. I am truly disappointed in their cases so far.

Exactly, not to mention that 2 Lian Li Full tower which is aluminum is priced @ 200 and below!

The 650D should be 150 and under

Eh. Hafx isn't as clean as the 600t. And I'd assume the airflow difference isn't even going to impact much.

They had three at my local Micro Center and I bought one. It was $215 after tax. I'm kind of ashamed of myself.... Lol. Don't get me wrong I love the case but hate the price. Maybe I'll post a few pictures soon, but I want to RMA my p67 board first.

On a side note, anyone want a dirt cheap HAF 922 in the Chicagoland area?

i know the 650T does look sleeker but thats not what CM went after, they did the rugged case look. and yes the airflow makes a difference.

i bet when supply catches up with demand they will be. If you want one of the first, you'll have to pay for the privilege.
