    I've used both the 650 and 600T from corsair and they make their cases very well.

    Looks like a sweet case, Corsair's cases always have solid looks and quality. I like it. However, it looks somehow narrow from the photos... according to dimensions, it should fit a Hyper 212+, but the tower looks too narrow for it :) Maybe because it's very tall?

    I just wish there would be no crazy price overhead on cases in my country. This will probably cost $200-240 here :(

    Corsair ALWAYS makes quality stuff, but that case is HUGE! You could put 4 computers in there.

    This case came out at the same time as the 400...about a month ago.

    The damn case should have been wider. Wider for the compatibility of large towers and wider for the use of a front 200mm fan... not 2 old ass 120mm fans.. geez

    Perhaps they did this intentionally to not completely take sales away from the 600t.

    I could use one of these in a full tower. 600R, anyone?

    I must say Corsair makes amazing cases (the 600T has such great cable management it looks like your components are running without cables). I would love to see a mATX case or SFF for LAN gamers or for people who just want a small case.
  • Components are getting smaller, cases are getting larger. Please make a smaller case that has spots for SSD.

    looks nice.
    I'm not a big case type of guy.
    but these look nice.

    Looks sweet and not a bad price either.
