lowfat, if you looked at the OPs link it's priced at $300. Not a bad price I'd say. You don't like the grommets? I think it's the best way to get rid of unwanted clutter from cables...

err I guess I missed the price part

The holes/grommets help with clutter, but they make it look very cheap. If grommets are used I think they should be done minimally and be hiding (behind the mobo tray).

Honestly Arinoth once you get a taste of a good quality case and you have the money it's hard to go back. Unfortunately for me I have to temporarily downgrade and I'm going to hate every minute of it. Otherwise I would be looking at this case for sure. Although even though I was defending them before for $300 some anodized aluminum should have been used. Hard to say though the case is monstrous and could have made it a $400 - $500 case.

I Digg everything this case is on paper, but I find it to be kinda too bland, and the window looks dumb. Otherwise the features look fantastic.

This has got be one heavy mofo full steel construction, fully loaded easily 40-50lbs with H20 gear set it and forget it.

All alluminum construction? I don't even want to think about much that would cost. I think $299 is pretty reasonable because if you were to purchase this case it would be hard to justify replacing it with anything else for quite a long time.

Remember guys Corsair will have a smaller less expensive version out sometime around Christmas, so if you're not willing to spend $299 you'll have something else to look at.
