    I would like to see a mini itx version of this (and the similar other manufacturers cases) that particularly cuts down on the depth to around 350mm.

    Wowzers - Corsair are really churning out the cases aren't they??

    I think they have actually upped the price on some of their older higher-end chassis to fit these new mid/lower range additions in though and seem to have made a massive mistake not including a fan controller on a silent case - everything else looks quite good though apart from the price.

    When was the last time you actually used a fan controller? Most half decent motherboards (and you have to assume if people are spending £75 on a case are spending about the same on a mobo) have 4+ PWM headers, and for my money at least software control is much more useful than having to turn a dail everytime I load a game or something.

    Just about every day as it happens!!

    My Corsair 650D is about 4 feet away from the foot of my bed so I use the fan controller every time I have the computer on during the night ...

    I'm torn between this and the 300R at the minute.
