When we visited Corsair in the beginning of the year in Fremont, California the company told us about plans to move into the case market. There weren’t actually pictures or prototype builds available at that time which is why we didn’t mention it. Now first pictures are available and Corsair will even show a first prototype sample at this year’s CeBIT which begins tomorrow. We made our way over to Germany to cover the show and want to show pictures from this case already today. There is no name yet for the case and first real samples will be ready in the second quarter of 2009. Tomorrow we will see the mockup sample and there will be more pictures from us as well.

    Thermaltake makes the Tai-Chi which would fit your bill:


    It's a work of art, that case. I don't own one but have seen it running and the whole package screams of quality. It's also a behemoth of a case in size and weight.

    Awesome cable management! Those pictures really are awesome, good find, <3 the case! I just hope it won't cost an arm and a leg.

    Which OEM will they use and will they bring something themselves to the cases? Those hddbays looks nice though, but the case is kinda to big for my taste. I love hotswap bays though and think more cases should use them. (I got a Chieftec 3in2 hotswapable HDD-bay in an old Addtronics 6896AB)

    The interior is still the same old school design pretty much. I'd like to see completely separated heat zones, something that ABS attempted (partially) with the Canyon, but done right and for half the price of Canyon, and all cables hidden behind the mobo tray. I wish, I could design and build my own case:(

    Agreed...it's nothing new or unique, though it is pretty clean and sleek. It reminds me of a hybrid Lian-Li case with some Cooler Master features. Will it sell? I have no clue, but perhaps it might. http://findaerialequipment.com/">aerial lifts ftw

    For the price of the Canyon, I'm pretty sure you could buy some sheetmetal and build your own case.

    For the price of the ABS Canyon, you could not only buy the sheet metal, but hire someone to build it for you. The metal working tools to do the job yourself would probably cost somewhat more than the Canyon.

    Yeah, it's not that simple. To do this right you need some machinery that costs quite a lot and skills which I don't have. I can do some mods but starting from scratch is beyond me. I did think about this seriously, even started some drawings, but I don't know how to do proper drawings so I gave up:( I have to look around if anyone actually builds custom cases. All that I know, like Danger Den, only mod existing designs.

    Any design with all right angles should be trivial for any machine shop, so long as you can provide them with engineering drawings. They are set up to drill holes and bend metal with precision. Wouldn't be cheap though.

    I may have jsut found my next case... As long as the price isn't insane!
