Hey everyone, I know I'm excited about the new 900D coming out and I'm sure most everyone else is too. The first reviews are coming in and one of my favorite reviewers: Linus Tech Tips has it:


Early pricing has it at $350, which is fair for the massive case you get. Literally, you could easily put dual systems in this machine, not dual cpus, but dual systems. Well technically you could put dual cpu systems in there, but it's so big there is more than enough room for more than one system.

I can wait for the modders to get ahold of this. The massive water cooling loops, the customizing, its all going to be so sick.

I'd like to see a regular gaming system up top with a iTX setup underneath. Theres more than enough room to sneak it in.

What do you think?!

Thinking about ordering one of these badboys. I just took the plunge into watercooling and have the madness now. Spent my yearly PC budget, but now I'm thinking of going bigger and better. The last few parts I have ordered have all been 'just one more'.

I think that I'm going to buy one, as soon as they become generally available. I also think that after I do, there will be no reason to ever stop upgrading, and all my spare cash will disappear inside it, but I won't mind, because I'll have a system that will awe & amaze all who lay eyes upon it. They'll all think I'm crazy for putting that much $ in a computer, and they'll be right, but I won't care, because I'll have Godzilla to keep me warm and happy.

Watched that review last week. Good review and a absolute beast of a case. I am going to be sticking with the 800D for a while though:)

Nope, not even close. Unless, of course, you consider a Ford Taurus equal to a BMW 750 Li and a Slim Jim as tasty as a fine Delmonico ribeye.

There's another massive case from Azza that is designed for that exactly. Don't recall the model right now...

I have the blackhawk ultra too and it would be a awesome case if it wasn't for the lack of radiator setups for us watercooling fans. Can fit up to 420 rads up to the Alphacool Monsta up top and a slim(40mm or less) 240 or 280 up front but due to Rosewill(Newegg) dumbass design of a nice gap between the two 140's you can't use them unless its in a pull. Highly considering dumping mine to get this.
