    Big ass tower that makes no different than building an ATX system.

    I agree. 44cm height is not an M-ATX case.
    Lian Li A05FN does a better job with 38.5cm height, and it can house two graphic cards WITH space between them.

    The only advantage of 350D is that it can accommodate 240mm radiator on top.

    After first excitement I doubt now that this case offers more than my Lian Li.
    And I really want to move to a new one because the cable management is a nuisance in my case.

    The space between the video cards is scary. It will heat up the cards.
    But maybe a single GTX780 will suffice. So this case is not made for SLI.

    negative:
    * no optional top cover to shut the mesh - maybe corsair can offer that later?
    * only 2 5,25 -bays, I need a third for a fancontroller
    * need more 3,5 Hdd bays - are they optional available?
    * Corsair Obsidian 350D Review - YouTube
    Might be the illumination in the video but at a closer look I find the appearance of the 350D a bit cheap.

    As a current user of Corsair 600t, a giant case with plenty space for cable management, I would say cable management is somehow overrated. You don't really need it unless you are planning to show off the inside of your case to the public.

    In real world application, just tidy your cable to keep the airway clear and you'll be fine. No need to overly 'manage' it.

    Nothing "micro" about it IMHO... but it does look pretty sweet nonetheless...

    Sorry, but if you don't like and practise case modding, how can you know this?
    Whatfor do I have a big windowed case if not to show what I have? Maybe these cases full of cable clutter reflect the personality of their owners.
    Cablemanagement is a conditio sine qua non. All my cables are either hidden as far as possible in my case or made for showing off, like the braided from NZXT and Corsair.
    My case is a constantly developing piece of art. Full of illumination and with nice cables and new hardware.
