Corsair Bursts Into Case Scene

Hexus have done it again with their for getting exclusive previews of products out of Corsair.  Reporting from the CeBit tradeshow, Hexus gets a closeup view of a new product line out of the memory manufacturer.  This time it looks like Corsair is entering yet another market with a solid looking full tower case.

Those of us who have more elegant taste will be pleased to see that Corsair have chosen to go the way of a simple, sleek design that hearkens to the likes of Lian-Li and Silverstone.  Materials consist of an aluminum front panel combined with a steel skeleton, with all sections painted, anodized, or powerdercoated black, including the internals. 

The case is described as to be watercooling oriented, and thus comes with pre-cut grills and fan mounts for a triple 120mm radiator to be mounted on the roof.  Other rather handy features include hotswap-capable drive bays and a nice cable management system consisting of rubber-lined holes in the motherboard tray.

All of these features don't come without a price though.  Corsair's representative at CeBit said we may see this case on the market this or next month with a retail price of $250-300, though nothing is set in stone yet.  The case on display is also simply an early sample, and that we should expect to see 20-30 small and large changes.

Check out more pictures here, as well as Hexus' close-up video here.

Will Corsair's high-end case be able to stand its own against the likes of the popular Lian-Li and Silverstone offerings?

Hi there ive been trying to overclock my pc for ages now ive read alot of articles even with people who are using the same mobo and cpu as me however nothing has helped.

However i managed to overclock to 2.80ghz which shouldnt be a problem for my pc i guess, had it stable for a few days and today i turned my pc on and it just restarted and it went back to default. I only changed the CPU Host Frequency(Mhz) to 311 and it was fine for a couple of days but as i said it just went back to 2.40ghz today.

Ive tried many different ways of overclocking changing alot of things but nothing has worked.

Ive taken pictures and would be very greathful if somebody can tell me what to change so i can get my CPU overclocked to either 2.80/3.00ghz which i guess for a Q6600 isnt that hard.

My system -
Intel Core 2 Quad Pro Q6600
Point of View GeForce 8800 GT 512MB
Gigabyte GA-X38-DS4 Intel X38
Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro
Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound

Pictures -

Lock the PCI-E frequency to 100 - dont leave it on Auto
2 gig ram - check its not cas 4 memory.
Preformance enhance - disable that
memory multiplier - what settings have you under that?

Make sure that you dont have any values in the bios that are auto. Except the ram, I have the basics on mine but leave the rest :D

On the P35-DS4, all I did was take the PCIE off (AUTO), took the DDR speed off (AUTO) and to a fixed speed 800 or 400 or whatever, then cranked up the fsb.

Haven't any experience of the bios settings as frankly that's all I needed to get Q9400 to 3g, so I haven't spent any real time in it.
