hahaha i knew, was JK!!

we need cases like the primo to impress you.. you already have the luxe..

I just can't dig this case. Corsair isn't doing great with new cases. They should do as AMD did......

I like the aesthetics but I'm not sure that I am sold on the internals for 80 bucks. I'm pretty annoyed it doesn't even have grommets at that price point.

well that's how corsair does more and more. this case looks like it mixes the internals of the 200R/Spec series and should be no more than $60 IMO. $80 is steep for this when you have the Enthoo Pro M and Define S with far better interiors and all the finishing touches. even the S340 that's all steel.

Well that thing is hideous and no grommets yet costs $80? Good one Corsair.

they did the same thing with the 230T, which is just a riced up 200R. $80 for cases that should cost $55, a Corsair specialty.

The styling is lost on someone like me. I personally think it's uglier than Jimmy's little sister. Even the Cougar and DIYPC low end cases are better looking.

that's the risk you take with strong designs. I'm sure someone from Corsair would tell you "we have the spec 01. 02, 03, 100R and 200R for you".

Actually, I kinda like their Vengeance C70. At the price they're asking for it I'd go with the Enthoo instead, though.

Reminds me of when I was younger, I used to watch fashion shows just to see some of the ridiculous creations designers would come up with. The idea someone would pay thousands for a unique design that was hideous (IMO) tickled me pink. Someone will buy that case with pride and show it off at every opportunity, but that someone won't be me.

true indeed. the C70 is nice, I did some builds in the green and the black one, but I agree at that price it's no longer competitive.
