I'm not on that side of the company, but more than likely it's just a coincidence. I believe products take a lot longer than 3 months for items to go from an idea to store shelves.

So, this week is Computex in Taiwan, where multiple manufacturers get to show off some new products they're working on.

Whilst I have been working on my full-size cube case, however, Linus Tips saw this at the show:


This is the Corsair Slate, a super tower that can hold a whopping 34 fans (or up to four 120mm quadruple-fan radiators), and is also designed for two-system configurations! Now bear in mind it is currently only a concept... but if the company plans to sell THIS, I need to debate on whether to continue designing my 680X idea.

The Slate is probably going to cost as much as Phanteks's own Enthoo Elite, however, which is £800

After careful consideration, I've decided to continue work on the 680X design.

The "Slate" is a truly impressive concept and I'm sure some people will want it, so I am glad Corsair have been thinking about offering such a massive case. However, by providing both my design of the 680X for £400/$525, as well as the Slate (perhaps called the 900X later) at £650/$800, this would ensure Corsair has a good competitive lineup against other case manufacturers...

Even if they don't make my proposal exactly, the 680X's volume and the number of fans it can hold would offer a great midpoint between the 570X and the Slate.

That Slate is mental, which, coming from a 900 user is quite something. If I could afford it, if I had a bigger desk and if I had that much money lying around spare, I might actually consider it. Of course, I would like to stay married, so probably not.

Though it was standing on a sideboard at the show, it feels more like something you'd have next to a desk at home or in your office. Maybe a trolley could be sold for the case to sit on...

I think Corsair should put up a thread so users can discuss all the products they featured at Computex 2017.

I've been otherwise ill the past couple of weeks after an operation, so couldn't continue work on the 680X template...

Now feeling somewhat better I'll be getting back to it, but before I do, I wanted to pitch ideas for a LAPDOG 2:

Although I started writing it a few days ago, this is being posted mere hours after the LAPDOG 1 has gone on sale at half price, so I suspect this probabaly means you may see some of the ideas I've listed in an upcoming product

Thumbs up

As some may be aware, Corsair launched a new mid-tower case this week they have designated the Crystal 680X. Slightly larger than the Crystal 570X, it doesn't cross all the boxes as a midpoint-chassis between this and the 1000D (which is what my proposal intended), but is a strong competitor to several "dual chamber" cases.

There is always room for improvement, such as HDMI 2.0 and Thunderbolt 3 ports added to the I/O, to better support VR setups. Though difficult to see in the photos, a gap in the case partition, with a small access door in the storage chamber to install a reservoir would be nice as well, as a 360mm radiator in the main case looks to get pretty tight if a PSU shroud is installed...

On the whole, however, it is definitely something I would buy; it is also conceivable there's room for a Commander Pro, if you replace the basic fan hub. I see no reason, therefore, not to close this thread.
