I really like this case, I think it's going to be a bit of a battle between this and the nzxt tempest 410. Are you guys planning a review of either case? AnandTech has a good review but I'm partial to hhware reviews!

This is pretty nice, maybe redesign it a bit, too much of a plain look for me. But it has all the features u might need and a nice price point.

I didn't think it would be possible for Corsair to release a cheaper case but they did... The case does look good and anybody wanting quality is not going to be disapointed by Corsair but $99 does seem a bit high... Still, Corsair is a good brand, they have some good features and you do get a good value if you're looking for quality at the lowest possible price.

This might be just what the doctor ordered no clear side window and a great price. If you guys get your hands on a review model I would love to know how well all that cable management works. From the looks of the pictures it looks easy to keep the cables neat and tidy.

You can't argue with that price! I really like the fact that the interior is painted black. Makes the case look amazing. It looks roomy and it isn't even a full tower! Now thats my kind of case!

I'm used to CoolerMaster's prices. They come in a little lower than $99.00 and they're damn good cases too.

I have to say that I like the looks of this case and I would consider building with it if the reviews are favorable.

I like the Fractal Design Arc Midi in the first pic. I have the Define R3, but I would have gotten the Arc Midi if it wasn't sold out at the time.
