I like the solid construction, clean lines, easy cable management and convenient well thought out layout that lets me put together my build quickly and easily, and the ease of maintenance and cleaning. I have been using an Obsidian 800D since they came out as my main computer case and it has served me through 3 upgrades, a switch to water cooling, and a house move with no problems whatsoever.
Since I am very satisfied with the cases as is, if I had anything to suggest it would be that while I barely do any case modding (switching the window in my obsidian is it) In future cases, I would like a feature like screws instead of rivets in order to break the case down further and make mods if i chose to.
1. They are well thought out, easy to cable manage, with a wide range of choices for different budgets. They are aimed not only at entry level system builders or workstation class elegance.
2. I would like to see some new materials used. The cases seem to all blend together when viewed from a website. steel and aluminum can only go so far. would like to see a case built out of carbon fiber, magnesium, or something else. Maybe just a section of it. Possibly have a new "high" end line called Elemental, that focuses on experimental designs. Things like inverted motherboards, novel cooling systems, integrated non-ATX style PSU's. You may not win with them all, but it would be a nice playground to see what the market is interested in. I would recommend 3-5 cases that are all limited and the lineup changes every 1-2 years. These would also drive an aftermarket interest in the cases for possible collectors or rare cases. You could then use the feedback to apply towards the cases in you mainstream lines.
I have owned two Corsair cases and find them to be well designed and constructed with plenty of room for the AIOs on my CPU and GPU as well as having efficient cable management space. I would like some different aesthetic options such as different case materials, exotic colors or design that immediately sets them apart from the big rectangular box crowd. Even if nothing changes I am fairly certain Corsair will be my first choice for cases, power supplies, RAM, SSDs and AIO coolers.
What do you like about Corsair’s current lineup of cases and what would you like to see from Corsair computer cases in the future?
The 760T-780t is all in the right direction,
But I would suggest to bring back motherboard trays! I refuse to get rid of my CM-stacker 830 because it makes it so easy to upgrade. If you could integrate that with a quick in and out radiator installation I bet people would love that.
I can't stress enough tool-less designs. rounded/smooth edges make upgrading/swapping much better and less *ahem* painful.
I like the solid construction, easily removable filters ( Obsidian 450D is my absolute favorite mid tower case) Great air flow,lots of room for fans. 760T is my favorite large case, it looks amazing, great airflow
I would like to see a little more attention to detail on silent cases, Obsidian 550D should not have the front ports such that they are in the way of the door opining if something is plugged in
I would like more options for side panels Window, no window, and fan intake.
Add removable filters to all cases for intakes.
Try to keep the width such that the tall coolers can fit. We are starting to use a lot of CPU coolers at 165mm heights.
They really look amazing and very roomy on the inside. After reading the reviews, I can't think of anything else I'd want in a case. Every shortcoming I've discovered on my current non-Corsair case is not an issue with this one!
I'd definitely go with one of these on my next build, whether I won this one or had to go buy it.
I like the general layout of Corsairs cases, and the styling. It's obvious in most chassis corsair do consider assembly when they design.
What would I like to see?
What happened to the C70? I would L O V E, a full line up like say, C30 mITX, C50 mATX, and a C70 v2. Maybe a C90 Full tower?!?!? Minus 5.25 drives, lotsa fan\rad options, all metal construction (or as near as it can be) and a solid side window. Clear flow for the intake to send air to the components. I'd buy one on shear principle even if I did not need a case if it was done right.....because there will be handles and reasons...
My next request should be no shock, Less plastic please! Magnets and fan filters are our friends (350D looking at you, snapped a blade off an AF140 in one cause of the latch on the fan filter).
No joke, I have case this in my wishlists at a couple vendors' sites. I love Corsair's attention to detail and the overall build quality of their cases, and especially the white highlights (on the white variant, obviously) and the clean look of the 780T. My only complaint (and this goes toward the question at hand) is that it's a bit large. I mean, who even uses 5.25" bays any more? I'd love to see a variant that ditches the 5.25s, making for a cleaner front panel, and maybe drops the height a bit. The older I get the more I care about efficient use of space and this case, though beautiful, could stand to lose a few pounds/inches. Much like me, really.
I like the dedicated 2.5" SSD drive mounts of the current case.
I'd love to see a TRUE modular case for the future, with no 3.5" or 5.25" drive mounts to give an ultra-small form factor -- but with an available 3.5" drive module that would stack under/above the case if you needed mechanical storage. Same for a 5.25" BD/DVD drive module that could be integrated into the case.
Have not owned a Corsair case yet, do own plenty of their other products. Corsair cases always look great and they seem to have excellent build quality. What I would want, and I'm a minority, is a case 100% dedicated to water cooling. Biggest thing would be room for multiple 360/420mm rads.
