$350 by the looks of it (Linus Tech Tips video):
Corsair Obsidian 900D Ultimate Enthusiast Case Feat. George Makris - Linus Tech Tips CES 2013 - YouTube

I like the options for air and water. I have the 800D, love the looks of it, but I want to move from water to air and the poor air cooling is a bit of a concern in the 800D.

Not impress.
Why in the world would you need so many 5.25" bays!?

To convert them to hdd drives via 4in3 hdd adapters. For such a large case it does not have much in the way of hdd space. I was looking at this for a mega build (14+ hdds) and while it may still be in the running...its not the leader it was going to be. Still looks great though and may pick it up for another more sane build (only 12hdds). :)

This looks like it is going to be the new mack daddy for water cooling.

And what I mean is the new mack daddy of common cases that you can purchase in retail stores. Not like caselabs or LD.

40lbs empty!
It looks an aweful lot like a modded Silverstone TJ07 to me.

Hey, they figured out we don't want to see the PSU in the cases window. Something I very much disliked about the 800D. I'll make a better choice after looking it over in the stores.

The 5.25 bays are actually wider than standard, so if you want to throw an ODD or anything else in it, IMO it looks rather hideous.

I think it's kinda useless for most people :D way too big anyway,maybe for massive Raid workstations and 4way SLI configurations,i think it's worth the price for a few people.Otherwise an R4 is just fine.

Nobody needs that space :D

I think that corsair should make a case that allows 2 motherboards X)
