Hexus have done it again with their for getting exclusive previews of products out of Corsair. Reporting from the CeBit tradeshow, Hexus gets a closeup view of a new product line out of the memory manufacturer. This time it looks like Corsair is entering yet another market with a solid looking full tower case.
Those of us who have more elegant taste will be pleased to see that Corsair have chosen to go the way of a simple, sleek design that hearkens to the likes of Lian-Li and Silverstone. Materials consist of an aluminum front panel combined with a steel skeleton, with all sections painted, anodized, or powerdercoated black, including the internals.
The case is described as to be watercooling oriented, and thus comes with pre-cut grills and fan mounts for a triple 120mm radiator to be mounted on the roof. Other rather handy features include hotswap-capable drive bays and a nice cable management system consisting of rubber-lined holes in the motherboard tray.
All of these features don't come without a price though. Corsair's representative at CeBit said we may see this case on the market this or next month with a retail price of $250-300, though nothing is set in stone yet. The case on display is also simply an early sample, and that we should expect to see 20-30 small and large changes.
Check out more pictures here, as well as Hexus' close-up video here.
Will Corsair's high-end case be able to stand its own against the likes of the popular Lian-Li and Silverstone offerings?
