So it looks like I might need to upgrade all my parts in the near future meaning mobo, cpu, ram, psu etc. And I just came across the new Corsair 4000D airflow version. It reminded me alot of my current Corsair 400d which 2 me was the best case I ever owned. I only had to clean it once a year and it hardly built up any dust compared to my previous cases. Anyways I'm wondering whether it's really worth it over my current case..

I think it's a sharp looking case, especially fond of the grill design on their airflow front panel. I was fond of earlier Corsair cases (750D, 350D-era) but moved away from them after their Spec-Op/Bulldog aesthetic phase and found their more recent cases a little too airflow restricted. This guy, though, looks like a return to form.

Exactly it looks so much like my current 450d. I'm wondering how much better the airflow will be though? Another big issue i didn't like though is the really dark glass :(

Another thing I just compared to my old 450d is dimensions. The dimensions on the new Corsair 4000d is LxWxH 17.83x9.06x18.35 VS old 450d 19.44x8.2x19.56. It's almost lost 2 inches in overall length and over an inch in height... also another downside is 1 regular usb connection and it's on the top instead of front. On my current case I have 2 and they are on front so it's easy access VS top.. are these 4000d cases of lesser quality? I'm kind of shocked at how cheap they are i remember my 450d was pricey around 100 bucks 5 yrs ago
