    Looking impressive indeed.

    Maybe we finally have an entry level water cooling solution (at least for the CPU) that works, and works well.

    EDIT:
    I'm liking the massive window for the sidepanel. I'm sick of seeing sidepanels that are only actually 30% see through. What's the point?! If you are showing off your system, you want to show it off to the max!

    Shame I think the case looks a little... boring.

    MUCHO ++ kudos to Corsair for showcasing their product the proper way: compare it to industry leaders under the same conditions! I can't believe you didn't spend some more words on this major marketing revelation! Giving journalists some actually useful comparison between their product and another... truely groundbreaking :p

    That case looks great on the inside, i wish it was available without a window though!

    What's that twin fan memory cooler on the pics? I can't find it on Corsair's site, is it out yet?

    If that all-in-one watercooler is a good as it sounds there, I'll try it out if I'm still stuck using my P180 when reviews are out and it's available here.

    And as much as I want that Corsair case... $300 I just know is gonna be £250+. And I'm just not gonna spend that much, when I can watch Scan like a hawk for the next time they're doing the TJ07 for £160, and buy another one of those instead, then mount a triple rad in the bottom and put HDDs in the optical bays.

    I hope you did not forget it in the airport lounge on your way home; I'd like a review before I put out my order.
    Same for lian x100 and Obsidian.

    Is there a possibility of a head to head comparison between the H50 cooler and that thing you have from those guys a couple weeks ago (you know, the one that got everyone up in a huff)? Or is that opening a bad can of worms...

    that looks like that syberian liquid cooling system, I wonder if it is actually made from them and rebranded. (I think thats how it is spelled)

    That case is nice, considering I started reading the article thinking I could replace this huge beast of a cooler with something smaller and more effective (H50) but I guess it looks like I may be getting a new case to, oh well, I'm about due for another upgrade.

    I'll be totally honest, I don't read most of the articles here unless there really interesting.


    $79 isn't bad, I guess I'll have to read the article now :rolleyes::sigh:

    That's a nice case apart from the feet and the interion "is to die for" as the expression goes.

    I shudder to think of the cost of this thing.

    Ok two things I notice that make the comparison test unfair:

    1) The TRUE is working in a closed case
    2) The Corsair WC kit is in a open case

    That Obsidian case looks really amazing!
