Man corsair is way too loved now adays because of their power supplies. Which are getting overly recommended these days considering the strong competition out now.
This case is 300USD dollars and is made out of steel. If you go to newegg.com, there is no case that is steel/aluminum at this price.
The closest being a thermaltake with a liquid cooling system preinstalled.
I would have no beef against this system, if it was made out of aluminum which is entirely possible at this price and considering the likes of lian-li and silverstone has been done. Heck the antec is atcs is aluminum and has some of the best cooling in the business and is 190US.
What Corsair decided to do here is take advantage of its name branding so it can increase its margins by removing the aluminum, because they know people will buy this for the corsair name alone.
This is hardly revolutionary or market changing like their power supplies which seemed to make people love corsair too much.
