    Corsair 7000D Airflow

    Pretty much, yeah. With a few other features like more USB ports, a new controller, more HDD and cable routing space, and each case is hand massaged by Swiss engineers who are trained in various techniques. okay maybe not the last one.

    Custom Cooled or Custom Styled - CORSAIR Launches 5000D RGB Hydro X Edition and 5000X RGB SIGNATURE SERIES Mid-Tower Cases

    It's not a radiator. The 5000D Hydro X edition has the new XD7 distribution plate unit in front. It combines a pump, reservoir, and some lighting effects. Looks like 3x fans from the front, but it's actually a 360mm distribution plate, with transparent fluid windows and whatnot. Easier to see...

    For an Immaculate Build That Keeps its Cool - CORSAIR Launches Versatile 5000 Series of Mid-Tower Cases

    Honestly the 4000D Airflow is better than the 500R in every way. And I was the PM and designer of 500R. PSU cover, refined design, better cooling, easier cable routing, more AIO capability, and $70 cheaper than 500R. Only thing the 500R has on 4000D Airflow is more hard drive space for 3.5"...

    For an Immaculate Build That Keeps its Cool - CORSAIR Launches Versatile 5000 Series of Mid-Tower Cases

    On the D and D airflow, the top panel looks like the front panel. And is removable. On the 5000X it's a piece of glass, like on 570X.

    CORSAIR Launches 4000 Series of Mid-Tower Cases

    As the guy who designed those cases, first I'd like to say two things. 1) Thanks! I'm stoked people still remember the 500R and the C70. C70 was really ahead of its time. All metal construction, tool free everything, modular drive cages, up to ten 120mm fans.... dual 240mm rads. Love that thing...

    Corsair Readies Hydro H100i Pro Cooler with Zero RPM Fan Mode

    Hey guys, just so everyone knows, the PRO series coolers have a few improvements over last gen, beyond just "fans that turn off". Here's the list: * Improved coldplate and pump that's significantly quieter. * Magnetic Levitation fans (ML) that have significantly reduced noise levels at...

    Corsair Launches Obsidian 1000D Super-Tower PC Case

    That's something we're looking at doing on the website - custom bundles, you pick which fan (ML series? LL series? HD series? 120mm? 140mm?) you want....but that's a ways off for a couple reasons. We pulled the fans out of 1000D because feedback from the guys buying cases in this price range...

    Corsair Launches Obsidian 1000D Super-Tower PC Case

    There's a huge gap between the front fans and glass. s well as It's pretty significant and doesn't affect intake. Also - for all you RGB haters you'll be pleased to know the fans are not included, so you can install whatever fans you want. There is, however, an included Commander Pro so you...

    Corsair Launches Three New Crystal and Carbide Series Cases

    Well, the code name for the 570X was "RADEON 9700 PRO" but we felt that was a bit too obvious.

    Raidmax Readies the SIGMA Mid-tower Chassis

    Take a look at the new 460X - it's a 400C with tempered glass front and side. Also, you may be quite happy for Q4. We have a few more things to talk about.

    Raidmax Readies the SIGMA Mid-tower Chassis

    While the SPEC-ALPHA isn't my personal taste, either, I designed it with the help of the customers who helped select different concepts. And now it's one of our best sellers. Sidenote - at the same time I designed that, I designed the 400C which is polar opposite on the "extreme" scale. I...
