55D looks nice... would love a silent but really good cooling case.. unfortunately the 2 usually don't mix. :(

Would love to see a review with tests of how good / bad it is on sound and cooling

The 550D is awesome. Silent case but if need be can be a power cooling house with removed sides!

Definitely the next case for me.

How can they update that case? Its almost perfect the way it was. I mean it does have a couple of small annoying flaws but nothing major to make it a deal breaker.

The 650D mostly is the same case as the 800D with noisier fans from what I get and now this case

Corsair gets major applause from me as they have been releasing some VERY nice simplistic cases at a good price point.

A good start would be, have an optional mounting system for a rad down of the bottom chamber. Just like the Cosmos 2.

If they also got rid of the (2) 5.25 bay, they would be able to install an air intake in the front.

Oh, and the optional USB 3.0 upgrade should be a mobo header - not that stupid USB cable bypass .
