    I really quite like the look of the Air 240.
    The only thing I would have liked to see was a 5.25 bay

    Still... Really nice. I've just gotten the 250D and I'm already thinking of changing

    why can't they go and tell us dimensions and show us the inside of the air 240.... It 'looks' fairly large to me but it could be deceptive

    Dudes, I think this one would have looked awesome on my desk when scaled down to Mini-ITX size.

    Brilliant to take to a lan party - possibly it may have limited appeal but it does look good.

    George Makris really does seem to know his stuff and what people want.

    From some dead rough scaling with the video and the spacing of the motherboard supports, it looks to be about 36cm long, 30cm high and 26cm wide (ish). I'm probably underestimating the size - that all comes to ~28000cm^3, which is about 44% of the volume of the original air 540 (63100cm^3) whereas he says in the video that it's about 40% smaller (implying that it's 60% of the size). That also puts it smaller than the TJ08-e, which doesn't seem right IMO considering the less volume-efficient design

    I was hoping to get a glimpse of the "liquid gpu cooler" mentioned in the headline

    They did show that, it's kinda like the NZXT G10 from what I can tell.



    I like the Air 240. Very cute next to its bigger brother, and finally someone builds a mATX case with smaller but dual exhausts!

    These all look quite stunning but the Carbide Series Air 240 looks a little too large and bulky for a mini-ITX build.

    I hope the Graphite Series 380T is out soon as that looks ideal for me to downsize into ... truth be told I have always dreamed of building a pc into a portable fan heater.

    Agreed...but for a mATX it's probably about right. And it would take my 3 slot graphics card unlike nearly all "Mini-ITX" cases ...Add to that the likely price and I reckon Corsair have a decent product here.
    Of course I'm perfect you just need to lower your expectations.
