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.

    and then if I could just take out those damned LED's.
    I wish I could just run my PC like a PC without a bajillion blue lights all over it.

    If this is below 230 dollars I will definitely look at it. The real pics show it as quite massive. I don't know if a removable motherboard tray is necessary,but it would be nice. More back fans,aswell as having 8 expansion bay slots.

    Simple. Black. Functional. And most likely of decent quality. I love it.

    Is it just me or does the spacing of the 3x120 look off a little on the front one??

    I really dig the style of this case. All black, no LEDs, real subdued. Some may call it plain, but I call it GORGEOUS :D

    Wonder of those are 120mm slots on top.. If so I'd get that case and upgrade to a triple-120mm-water cooling kit.. O_O

    Exhausting the water cooling heat on top of the case was the best mod I ever made.

    It's pretty plain looks wise. I am in the market for a new cabinet for my next PC, but I can't find anything that can even remotely match my Current Gigabyte 3D Aurora 570 Black Chassis. Would it be so hard to put some nice curves on this chassis and make it look more attractive?

    A good-looking compromise between Lian Li and Silverstone minimalism, it appears.

    I like it a lot.

    Although I can't say I'm happy with that 120mm fan sitting in the middle of the case, or with the three 120mm fans in the roof. Is the air intake through the meshed bottom?

    What will be really interesting if it is super-competitive in terms of price for the quality, like their PSUs. If it's overpriced, like their memory is nowadays, then there's no outstanding reason to buy one.

    willing to bet this is going to be a great case for cable management but it's just a little too square and plain for my taste.

    I want to see a quality water cooling system built into a case for once...with cable management done ahead of time for us. Like, why can't my main power cable be the exact proper length to reach my motherboard? We could plug a box into a case, and then have the case have all the cords on a spool or something. Unwind how much cable you need and then clamp the rest in place behind the back panel. Walla. Clean cable management done easy.
