Sharp looking little case.

Little too big for my tastes but could definitely make a small form gaming system.

Ya, it fixes the PSU problem my Node 304 has. You can't fit a modular PSU in the Node if you have a full length GPU in it too. It's a great case if you're running onboard or a shorty GPU though. This will be worth looking at when it hits the stores.

Looks great but it's too high for my mITX application. Pretty sure I was max of 10" high which is how I ended up with the CM elite 130.

I would also consider this but it only has room for 2 hard drives. The NODE 304 has room for 6

Yeah it's the double rad that's killing the compact factor here. It's bigger than my sg10, which will do mATX boards with a 180mm fan (but a single rad AIO at best).

Still, looks sharp. Nice to see Corsair giving attention to smaller sized cases.

They need console/steam box sized case. I am loving their looks these days and they are intelligently laid out on the inside. The other thing I was excited about was their AX1500i.

Thats a lovely lil rig you linked Charlie. In-fact if I could have built that with a 780ti I probably would have instead of my full tower and SLI.
