I really like the look of the 650D!

Having this case with only a 500w psu is like sticking a 1 litre engine in a Ferrari. Totally pointless.
Voted hot regardless.

How so? I have a i5, a 6870 and 4 1TB drives running quite happily of a decent 500W psu.

Unless you are planning on a hefty SLI or Xfire setup, 500W is plenty.

You're joking right? The PSU costs


Haha agreed, stealth edit failed.

added heat. the psu alone is a good deal.

Taking the PSU at say £45, the case is costing over £110. Yet nobody has said why they think it's worth that!

Don't panic, dear, it's just a computer case.

Its a cut down version of the 800D. I was eyeing it up at full price to replace my antec p180, which is starting to fall to bits. As stated, this is a luxury case, not a cheap case !

You have no upgradability at all. This case is designed for entusastists who want the best. I my self have an i7 860 @ 3.5ghz, 570, and 5tb of storage and the 600w I have isn't really enough if I want to upgrade. Unlike CPUs and graphics psus do not go to waste or go out of tech like other things in your system so is a worthwhile investment.

Saying that, quite often new tech. (CPU's, GPU's SSD's..) use less power than previous generations, so might not be as much of an issue as it used to be...

This case is also available on Deal Of The Day @**** for £129.98 if the psu doesn't suit ... seemingly the first batches of this new case have a faulty fan controller and maybe the reason why they are being reduced so quickly.

I think you can get a free upgrade kit from Corsair if it does turn out faulty.


It is a cracking case it has to be said and I would probably have taken the plunge if it wasn't for getting a cheap Coolermaster Cosmos Sport last night.

Just couldn't justify this price for a PSU, however nice or cool it is. I would spend £45 max. Hot if you want it though

You do know a case comes with this? lol
Also i hope you know that if your cheap ebuyer branded PSU decides it doesn't want to live any more it will most likely take every other component with it?

I sware most people take PSUs for granted when it should be one of your heaviest investments as if it goes it will certainly be one of the most expensive.
