To be honest I think these look rather ugly, especially will the grill/mesh panels down the front. I use the Obsidian 800D which is much better imo - sleek and functional. I'm very surprised these new models don't have the hot-swappable front-access hard drive bays - they come in really handy on the Obsidian.

Yeah I agree. This and the 600T are Corsair's ugliest products. I heard the 800D has piss poor airflow. If I get a case from them I'd get a 650D.

Airflow on the 800D is great if you have the right fans in the right places. It's very roomy inside and the air circulates well. Plus the PSU is mounted below the main case so you don't get the warm air from that being pumped into the main case.

Well that goes against everything I've read. The 3 tier cooling doesn't actually work and the case is only good if you're water cooling, lol. This isn't just from one person but from many people across different forums. Maybe you just happen to be in a cooler climate?

I love the looks of the 800D and 650D. Usually I try to stay away from flashing lights and LEDs and keep my cases nice and minimalistic. These newer ones definitely aren't in the same style as the Obsidian cases.

To be honest the room my PC is in is usually really toasty. Maybe it's because I haven't cluttered the inside and the H50 CPU cooler may help as it takes all that heat out of the case.

I also prefer a sleeker look. Main reason for 800D was space, cable management and hot swap drive bays. My old tower was jammed full with wires!

i like the obsidian cases, and the flashing lights thing annoys me, i will never have another computer with the fancy stuff because going to sleep with vegas in your background flashing and spinning on your rig is no bueno.

Looks like corsair is taking over..

Whatever they do you can guarantee that it will be a superb product! I love Corsair stuff, and if I had my way I'd get all Corsair things. Sadly, most of their newer stuff is not on the Asian market so for now I'll just be a loyal Corsair PSU and RAM customer.
