    With that fan pointing at the rear of the card, I was expecting much better GPU cooling.

    Looks like they're missing a trick with the half height 5.25 bay behind the FP cluster - surely you could rig up a simple plate/removable bracket to support a couple of SSDs?

    It could also do with a front fan filter and I'd expect to see rubber feet on a case geared towards silence.

    Oh look, yet another same old, same old, - no change in design, nothing different (just a square black box) Corsair offering for the market :rolleyes:

    Hang on, 2 of our last case launches were the 380T and the 780T which are about as un-black-box like as you can get.

    The 100R isn't the most revolutionary design around, but we do offer non-black-box cases too:D

    I'll concede you have a point with the 780T :thumb:

    The 380T however resembles something you'd find stocked by Pets at Home :D

    Fair play Antony, I concede he's done an amazing job :thumb:

    The 380T does however still resemble a pet carrier :D

    Yeah, I think my first system cost less than £200, might have been 250 in total. I remember the exact day. A couple of friends and I made a pilgrimage across town to a place called computer Orbit. It was my first time visiting such a place, and I was assimilated into the borg. Mind it was probably more like the year 2001, so that was 14 years ago. I ran it for a few years, it didn't have a bronze power supply, cable management or glowing fans. It's been interesting to observe the marketing that's grown around computers over the last decade or so. Of course I appreciate the technical advances, anything that makes things faster is a good thing.
