    First looks - Corsair's new enthusiast chassis: first look

    Very big, pretty expensive, but is it any good? We take a first look.

    I like the cable routing system very much. Don't think this case is particularly space efficient, but the designers probably decided to throw that out of the way and just make it ultra-expandable. This would probably make a badass water-cooling rig. If other case makers pick up that nifty idea with the cables being hidden away behind the mobo tray, I'd be pretty chuffed.

    Doesn't bring anything new to the table. Definitely not worth £250, not unless it's constructed of friction welded titanium or something.

    Looks nice but for £250 seems expensive when compared to, for example, Thermaltake's Spedo £140 which also allows the cables to be tidied and mounted through from behind the motherboard tray.

    Re: First looks - Corsair's new enthusiast chassis: first look

    Like others have said, looks very nice, cable management looks very good.

    Just one thought tho'. wrt water cooling.
    If you're gonna hang your rad on a rad box off the rear fan, those holes for the tubing are not going to line up with any rads. They should be further over to the side, i.e. above where the fan is, shouldn't they??
