That is Beautiful. Time to start saving up for the case and the slight addition to my power bill. But it will be glorious.

I don't want to nitpick, but I will. The panels don't match the front mask at all(they aren't flush with it), for that amount of money it's sloppy work.

Yeah it does look like crap -- maybe it wasn't pushed all the way in for the photos?

As I said in the other thread they are up for sale on Corsairs site today but it's shipping direct from China for $200 each. They will obviously get more in stock at a different time for way cheaper, Corsair gave people the option and a bunch of people were willing to spend $200 to ship it.

Anyway I think the case looks awesome and I'm going to eventually pick one up when it's in stock at a reasonable price.

Thanks for the review.

Makes me wonder if it's worth grabbing an EVGA SR-2, one of these and a pair of dual socket Xeons, another H100i and another 24 GB of RAM...

That is a very nice watercooling case, The 2x480 rads is more than enough cooling for anything.

Pretty epic.

How much is it then? I reckon around 350-400.

I will have 2 bathrooms a kitchen some with some structural work and a new boiler to pay for, oh and redecorating an entire house!

Love this case though.

Beautiful case. Don't think I'll ever own it though, I just couldn't justify that money. But really nice.

If I ever but another large case, it will be this one! Though I can't see me getting rid of the Switch anytime soon, but man it would be great to have a couple of 480 beasts cooling everything!

No probs mate, Theres a handful of us always at hand to help out.
Most of it is just common sense and taking your time, Im sure you will be fine and it will be a great build when finished.

Good luck with the house, I know what your going through, worth it when finished!

$350 for a plain jane black case!?

Hell no.

If it included the water cooling then it might be worth talking about.
