Nice complete review with system assembled. I like when you see windows without fan holes, it gives a smooth impression. On the other side, I think the front where the drive is offset really breaks the look of it tho.

 

The SSD cage looks awesome, compared to one you buy aftermarket (needs screwing).Are the HDD/SSD cages limiting the video cards size only if you are in Crossfire/SLI (w/c radiators not taken in account)? What happened to that 6950? Never seen that cooler before, not even aftermarket.

 

Also, I think that the 500R to which you compare this case is of a lesser line, am I right?

Compact & slim chassis with all the necessary options we need to build a solid mid or high end system. And priceing is also decent from Corsair.

I like this case. Your review popped up on Corsair's Facebook posts.


That's nice. :)

Would have loved to see this direct compared to the N200 case, they fill the same nitch. I tired comparing your reviews but the use of a different video card threw those numbers off. Also I am curious. The N200 would be using the radiator as an intake, traditionally this should have resulted in lower CPU temps under load not higher.

I agree - I also expected the numbers to reflect a lower CPU temp on the N200.  I reran the testing too and got the same results, and I don't have a good explanation. 

 

As for the video cards, I had to change the 4870 since it was starting to fail regularly and would not last more than 30 seconds into a test.

 

Also - feel free to let me know what you like or don't like about any of my reviews, so I can improve with each new review.

The 900D is a beast of a case when fully loaded with water cooling and video cards!

You just can't compare 900D and 350D in any aspect. ;)
