    Re: Beans - Corsair raids the chassis market: competitors beware?

    I don't get it, no front intake, it comes from the bottom? and its elevated, rubbish airflow going to nowhere tbh. Anybody else think its missing the front bezel sorta thing? Can see the optical drives sticking out, i dont like it tbh

    It's 4.98*

    Be nice to see if they bring out a good range of different cases.

    Agreed. £250 for a chassis always equals fail in my book.

    Some real pics, rather than renders:

    Gotta say, it does look brilliantly conceived and put together. I particularly like the way the cool air is really well-supplied to the graphics cards, which is the component most likely to overheat these days. £250 though.... it'd have to be more like £150 before I was interested.

    If it was about £100, I'd probably be going for it as it looks smart and neat, but as it is, no chance.

    Re: Beans - Corsair raids the chassis market: competitors beware?

    Well for £100, look at what is on offer from other manufacturers, pales in comparison.
    Even at £180-200 the Corsair case still excels in many areas.
    I'm looking forward to the final design.

    Looking at thoes pic's it's flipping humungus!
    Looks roughtly the same size as the CM ATCS-840 which is BIG.

    Actualy looking at the insides it's not like the antec p180 more like the Silverstone raven but with out the motherboard rotated through 90 degrees.

    The bottom section is not isolated from the upper section (see the large fan in it) it cannot be isolated as the bottom seems to be the only source of incoming air.
    There's no front venting or fans, all the air is coming in from below.
    The only isolation is the "in at the bottom out at the back" psu position, which we've seen in quite a few cases.
    And the Hard drives, the shroud on the fan beside the hard drives, pulls air up from below and then feeds it around behind the motherboard tray and out of a rear vent (I've not seen that in any other case.)

    This bottom only venting should help reduce sound, as the location of a fan does much for it's sound level.
    Take two fans with the same sound pitch and volume, place on at the back of the case one at the front, the front fan will sound louder, turn you case around or stand behind it and the rear fan will sound louder.
    I know there are other factors that can add to a noise this is just a simple example.
    the reason is that 2 of the factors that effect a fan's noise level is it's proximity to you and the path the sound has to travel, front fans are closer and the sound has a direct path to you.

    There's also the issue of resonance, air being drawn in through a grill will generate some sound.
    By removeing all front vent's and instead haveing the vent at the bottom of the case corsair have removed a direct path for the sound to your ears.
    By moveing the intake fans inside the case they have further reduced the sound.

    The main reason for the shelf seems to be to direct the air flow not create a seperate cell within the case (like the p180 does)
    However I would also worry about the air flow, if you have 4x120mm fans drawing air out (rear + 3 top fans) but the only intake is a single 120mm fan at the bottom, this could cause some real problems, esp as there seems to be no other non-fan air vents which could draw air into the main section.

    As to the price CM released the ATCS-840 at the same sort of price point and I don't think it's sold that well, the fact that they are showing off new lower cost cases help support the theory that it's not sold well.
    At £200-250 I very much doubt this case will sell that well.

    I agree ,I really preffer a case with normal silver colour inside and black outside , if All the inside is black I think it is going to be a nighmare to see anything there
