Reminds me of the Arc Fractal Mid. Does this have an additional removable drive cage in between the 5.25 drives cages and 3.5 drives cages?
We left the option there for future revisions, but by default it comes with only the four drives in the lower cage. We can sell a small adapter kit hat would include four drive trays and the other cage wall and thumbscrews to install it if people are interested, but our decision was based on a couple other things.
1) Cases in this price range typically don't get more than 4 hard drives installed in them.
2) Better airflow over the GPUs was possible by removing it.
3) Longer GPUs could be fit by removing it.
4) Cost could be brought down slightly to accommodate other things like size and finishes.
CorsairGeorge is awesome reputation in this forum!! Yeah! It 300r is soo beautiful case and street price tag 8X*XX is more reasonable.. But I'm not sure Corsair will announce the 200r carbide (mATX) case or mATX Obsidian by this year or next year. this or Corsair mATX case will be my next, no question.
Yeah, design elements. Cosmetics. They are allen-headed screws so you can take them out, if you want. We wanted a bit more of an "elegant industrial" look and the bolts helped.
Internally one of our engineers joked it was like the Frankenstein case. Then one of our (very well-educated) technical marketing guys corrected him that Frankenstein was the doctor, and the monster never really had his own name.
