Great review! I like that case... its pretty much what I want, only negative thing for me is I hate cases with windows.
if I wanna see inside ill take the side off.. so for me that quick release button would be great!

If it was all aluminum and minus the window id be ordering 2 right now.

will probably be a toss up for this or a more expensive lian-li case.

Looks wicked, man

Purolator says mine arrived at the sorting facility in Toronto, so I'll have to wait until Monday to get my grubby little hands on it. I guess I shouldn't be so impatient, it's not like I have anything to put in it yet

Whats the weight of that case? My TJ09 won't allow me to throw in a single slot PhysX Card (only 7 slots), but I see the Corsair has a "venting" slot at the bottom...could this possibly support 3 GPU's (Tri Sli) and a PhysX Card?

I thought this case was a mix of steel n alum.....would make it heavier then the TJ09?

Love the Cable management....wayyyy better than the TJ09!!

It's HEAVY. TJ09 is all aluminum. It makes an enormous difference to the finished system weight.

This will perfectly allow the use of a dual slot card in the bottom PCIe slot (like the Gigabyte EX58-EXTREME), so it's a very cool feature.

And yeah the cable management is piss simple. I have a tech tips coming out soon on just this case.

Yeah for someone like me that is constantly farting around with Fan configs and moving it around it may not be so grand...(at 45 yrs old ;) ),,,,although it did kinda "irk" me that an expensive Silverstone Case n classified Board and I cannot move one of my 280's to the lower PCI-E slot so I can try out a 9800GT PhysX Card...oh well....

I did have to get my drill n dremil to get the Cabling the way I wanted it..

I kinda no what you mean by that last part. I recently had my second back surgery in 9 months. Lucky for me the wife got a good sense of humor.(she said its alittle heavy)

Linus is right, cable management is piss simple...that and the hot swappable drive bays is what sold me on it. I think Corsair did a good job.

It seems Purolator attempted the delivery today . I'll post a few pics just as soon as I can get my voluptuous ass over to the Purolator centre.

Edit: Going to pick it up after work today! So pumped!

Here is the hard-earned result of my 2.5 hour trek to the Purolator store in Kitchener after work:



The box was mighty banged up, which worried me a lot. Another oddity, when I opened up the box as you see it here, I realized I was looking at the bottom of the case! But despite all that, the case turned up in tip top shape:



I don't have anything really to put in the case yet, but I threw my radiator in there for kicks (Feser 360):



As you can see, I'll probably end up having to sacrifice my first drive bay even when using elbow fittings, as the front of the rad hangs in there quite a bit. We'll see what happens there. Plenty of leeway at the back though. May end up flipping it around or something:
