Nah, I'm in the same boat. I do respect Corsair for taking such interest in consumer demands though. Great review, HWC! I especially liked the porn-like music throughout the thing.

Couple of things missed about this case that is a pretty neat thing.

1) The top part for the rad is sunk in a bit. I haven't taken measurements yet but I'm thinking perhaps a Radgrillz by AC Ryan could drop in.

2) Look at the backside of the motherboard tray and you'll notice 3 screws. Look closer and you'll see if you take these screws out you can remove the .. er .. ok well close. If you look at the back of the case you can see 5 or 6 rivets holding the tray in. By removing these rivets you can actually slide the motherboard tray out.

:D Enjoy.

You can't take your add on cards out with it, but it does allow you remove the tray for extra room upon initial install.

I will say this, while this case is the first of its kind out by no means does it have its issue. I found quite a few already that I dislike but for the most part the case is really nice.

My only big complain with the 800D is the peripheral plastic pieces. The case itself was made top notch quality, but in a few places they used plastic such as the flip door behind the cpu. When I received mine, that particular piece was broken. They used a very flimsy hinge.

However overall the case gets a 9 out of 10 from me.

I thought this case had support for 2.5 ssd? I can't seem to find a good place to put the SSD any suggestions? Also I'm having some issues with cable managment along the back of the motherboard I can't seem to get the back panel to close flat.

I'm using that exact SSD drive in the video and I thought that was the method for install but the drive connectors didn't reach the back of the hot swap bay. Going to have to have another look at that in the AM. thanks for the video link though very informative.
