Wow...I'm drooling so hard for this case. When I saw it, it was THE case for when I build a new personal PC. $200 seems a little much though..I could get an ATCS 840 for that! Or...lot's of other nice cases. :B

Good point - I'll have them all added.

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.

I bought my 600T at MC with a $20 mail in rebate. Kinda wish I would of waited to size this bad boy up. Oh well I am digging this 600T(removed the 200mm fans first thing). Corsair makes amazing cases.

WANT!!!! DO WANT!!!! Not really a complaint, but I sort of wish there was a big(ish) intake(exhaust?) fan on the window...

I had already lowered my expectations for Corsair cases. The 800D and 700D underwhelmed me, and so did the 600T. Three strikes for them, and now four. The 650D is yet another underwhelming case. Lack of airflow to the GPUs, but you can just zip tie a pair of 140mm or 120mm fans to the back of the HDD cage to fix this. The use of steel and plastic is annoying too. This case is not close to a Lian-Li and it's ugly on top of that.

Two thumbs down. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gifthumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

$200?..... Pass. Corsair should learn how to price their cases.
