White 600T was delayed while we evaluated UV fading. The 600T has steel and plastic parts and if you paint them with inexpensive paint, you'll see the steel and plastic parts fade differently over time. We have some competitors white cases in the lab, and after only about two months the plastic and steel are completely different shades of white. If you want to see it yourself and you have a white case, put a quarter on it and leave it there for two weeks. Then remove the quarter and look at the difference in color. (this may take longer if the room your computer is in rarely sees sunlight or has the lights on)

That kind of fading isn't acceptable to us so we've been trying different types of paint and different paint/powder coating techniques. We've pretty much got it figured out now, so we've got our stuff in final qual (which takes a few weeks) and the cases will ship in March, which means they'll arrive in stores in April.

Sorry for the delay there, but we felt it was the right thing to do to delay the case (and add significant cost) by going to a higher quality paint with a lot more UV fade resistance.

No idea, honestly. The guys in the XtremeSystems bandwidth forum would have a better answer since half of them talk to our memory guys daily and I only see them once or twice a week.

I work mostly on cases, cooling, and power supplies, with some input on audio stuff as well.

Now they are out of stock with ETA 04/01/2011. Wonder if it was a mistake?

I want this case SO bad, but I respect the great testing being done. This kind of quality is hard to come by these days, and because of that my new PC will be filled with Corsair components.

The word significant strikes me in the most unpleasant way possible. I understand that Corsair has gone through a lot to ensure that this paint won't fade to yellow, everyone appreciates that. It's safe to assume that the significant cost will be passed down to me, but how much is it? Would this be significantly more expensive than the black 600t?

The White 600T price is unchanged from what it was at CES, which is $179 MSRP. I expect street prices to be lower.

The largest driver of the cost is the addition of the window & mesh side panel. This is the white version of the part we sell separately on our website for the grey 600T. It comes with a window pre-installed, and the user can choose to swap out the mesh insert that has room for four 120mm fans.

So the white 600T is $20 more than the grey one, and comes with a window and mesh.

I know this is random, but CosairGeorge, what did you get your degree in? I assume some kind of engineering, Electrical or Computer maybe?

I'm not an engineer - but I've been here for almost 7 years so I've had a chance at doing a bit of everything.

My education is mostly in advertising and business.
