Hmm. Don't like the exterior. Do like the interior. Will never quite understand Corsair's "Innovate on every new case whilst letting the high-end cases stand unchanged" strategy.

As it is, I'm not sure why I'd buy one instead of the rather similar 400R, but it'd be nice to see a version without the LAN-party bling - strip that off and it starts to look a lot like an improved version of my old-fashioned Antec 300.

Im hoping it's along the line of the 600t in styling.

Their internal thermals are shitty. They so need to replace with better fans like silverstone o es. Fans are letting corsair down alot. They also need a bs goood matx case.

Was looking for a case for a m8 and came back to see what the pro's thought. About the only thing wrong with it is the non inclusion of the rubber grommets for a water cooling loop and no filter on the side panel (both easily fixed and hardly a deal breaker). I'm impressed with Corsair releasing few but quality products into the market.

Corsair cases are great to work in but as Bertross mentioned, their air flow sucks the proverbial anus!
I managed a 12c decrease in GPU temps in my 600t by changing just 2 fans.

*also looking forward to the new high end Corsair case. Hoping it is not plastic though

Features

Air Cover
High-performance gaming hardware requires high-performance cooling. Vengeance C70 is equipped with three 120mm fans out of the box, with mounting points for seven more to meet your exact air cooling demands.
I dont think air flow would be a problem here, it has more holes in it than a Syrian protestor.

Love that.......I also have a 600T and after replacing all the fans it's now tolerable with temps.

Corsair is real stingy with quality these days using very thin sheet steel for their cases.

And they are starting to look like Thermaltake Cases.....Gasp.....Horror......NNNNoooooooo.

Changed the top fan for 2 x 120mm Nexus fans and removed the top hard drive cage from the front..... thats it.

And lets not talk about the factory fitted fan (semi-)controller

Ah alright, I'm most likely getting a 650d. I was impressed with my mates 600T, besides the whining front fan, and I love the look of the 650D

Corsair needs to bundle their cases with their new fans

Yeah, those new Corsair fans are the nice and actually perform as rated!

I think Corsair have let their RAM game down a bit lately. I used to solely buy Corsair RAM until they released the Vengeance range. They have been nothing but crap for me
Add to this, the fact that any RMA's need to be sent to the US and they are kinda sucking right now.
