Default Graphite Series™ 780T Yellow (CC-9011064-WW) release date?

Hello,

I was just wondering if someone knows when will the new 780T (yellow) case be available for purchase?

Kind Regards,

PsyTech

Beginning to think they aren't going to release it . None of the retailers I go to have it . The same way you never heard Corsair mention the Hydro Series HG10 GPU cooling bracket anymore ..Not even on this site .

Rest assured, both of those products are coming.

Initial batches of the yellow 780T showed a color mismatch between the side panel and the body that we just didn't find acceptable, so rather than release a product that doesn't look just right, we elected to postpone the release of that variant to make sure we could get the paint to match properly.

The HG10 is actually due *very* soon. I'm putting the finishing touches on the "how to" installation video right now. It's real, it's in house, and it works.

.
Generally speaking, how long does it take to properly match the colors? It feels like a month is more than enough time.

Can you give us a ballpark time frame when they're going to start shipping? October? November?

You would be surprised.

A list of complications:
- The process has to be economical.
- The process has to be repeatable.
- Paint will slightly change hue depending on the material it's used on.
- The side panel of the 780T is metal; the shroud surrounding it on the case itself is plastic.
- Yellow is actually a very uncommon color for computer hardware.
- Yellow itself is...surprisingly complex.

But you guys are still going to release the case in yellow, yes? Will it be released this year or has production been pushed to next year?

I can't give a definitive date. I believe we're trying to get it out this year, and it's still planned for release. George is very...adamant about getting the yellow 780T out. ;)

Hello again,

Just wanted to ask, if you can be more specific regarding the date? Some of us already bought the product. Retailers are widely selling it in pre-sale, since original release date, and we are still waiting for it. Again, thank you for your time and effort you are giving to us, your customers.

Kindest regards,

PsyTech

take notice on new cars that have rubber/plastic bumpers and youll notice on some colors the shade is a bit off color from the cars color itself
the only way to match is to actually use 2 variances of the desired color which in its self is extremely difficult and comes down to a trial and error...
yellow and gold are 2 of the hardest colors to exact when using different types of materials...

I also pre-ordered this product. I Pre-ordered it from Amazon.co.uk:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...ilpage_o03_s00

They said the estimated delivery date is on the 1st of December. I hope they keep to thier word on this... Because I have already bought all the other components, and waiting on this 780T case.

I literally have all the parts on my bedroom floor at the moment, FOR A WHOLE MONTH!

I really need to fit this PC together. The wait is ridiculous!

I contacted Amazon, and they said the release date is on the 12th of December :)

Hope this helps anyone wanting to know

Edit: They pushed the date to 22nd December :(

Edit (20/12/2014): AMAZON HAS CANCELLED MY ORDER.

Come on Corsair... I have £2000 worth of computer parts lying on my bedroom for nearly 3 months now, the only thing awaits is the case.

I wouldn't do this to my customers, why are you doing this to us?
