    Looks like a good case actually, although I'm not really taken with the front panel... I prefer the sleek look over grilles

    Looking forward to seeing some reviews of it to see how it compares to its bigger brothers

    I'm with Snooty - looking good, but not sure about front panel. I'm not sure I'd quite stretch to £120 for one though.

    Yep, I preferred the look of the 700/800D front rather than these grills too! It's a shame about losing compatibility with a triple radiator at the top, but it's a smaller case and you can't have everything. Currently that would be the deal-breaker for me though.

    Still, there's dual-rad sealed CPU watercooling solutions coming out soon; this may be a very decent contender for those customers.

    so it's pretty much a Coolermaster 690 II minus the relatively low price, the facility for dual 280 rads and a load of fans but it looks better and is a bit longer

    Re: News - Corsair goes mainstream with new Graphite 600T chassis

    I really like the look of this

    Possibly a little steep (although much more wallet-friendly than the obsidians!) but if it's good build quality I'd pay £120 for it. Looking forward to seeing a proper review then... pretty please, Hexus!

    Any idea of dimensions on this? I'm trying to find a reasonable sized case to house a new build that I can shove in a LAN bag or similar. I don't take it out often, but I live up four flights of tight stairs in a flat and just want to make things a bit easier on myself!

    Not a fan, seems to be a lot of plastic to save weight, they also dont seem to get that people dont put £450+ graphics cards into these sort of cases. Im going to guess at £100 for the retail, which is too much considering there are Lian Li cases that are sleeker and Alu, or a Coolermaster case which is for gamers and LAN.

    so how would the USB3.0 port work? Will they be using some sort of new USB3.0 header standard? I think maybe not because it would be completely retarded in such a case to include 4 USB2.0 ports at the same time. It will probably be just a glorified USB 3.0 extension cord.

    If the standard for a header hasnt been fixed yet then they could just provide you with the individual pins. Im quite curious on how it will be done though i have to admit.

    curious being the operative word when thinking about USB3.0 IMO. Here you have a massive improvement on one of the most used peripheral interfaces and no one cares about it or how it is implemented or whether it is implemented or not.

    I simply do not care to invest in a PC case today if it only supports 10 year old inputs when a completely new spec (which is 100% backwards compatible!) has been out for a year.

    I'd guess over 500mm long, about 240mm wide,not sure on height

    If you want reasonably sized then you could always try the Coolermaster 360, it's very thin and it'll take a 5770

    It also looks a bit like the coolermaster storm sniper case. Not sure why you would remove the e-sata front panel connector and replace with USB 3, why not have both!

    where would they find space for 4(!) USB2.0 ports then?

    this case will be out-dated before it even reaches final spec.
