Summary: The case overall is nice and big, made more for the computer geek than the housewife. Mine came dented and they offered to send a new one but i choose not to deal with the hassle of repacking and shipping. Plus i really wanted to get started on building this system. Only other issue is the power supply that came in teh bare bones kit blows its warm air over my video card.
Summary: I purchased this case the end of December 2011 and did not have USB 3.0 functionality on both front ports testing with 3 different USB 3.0 storage devices. The back Intel DZ68BC board USB 3.0 header/ports worked fine. Corsair sent a replacement that appeared to be used (visible using a 10x loupe) that was received the first week of January 2012. Of the two USB 3.0 front ports with the replacement, only one functions as USB 3.0.
Summary: This case has some good points,like cut out for cpu on back of motherboard, easy cable management, two usb 3 ports on front,and some tool less fixings plus plenty of room inside. But let down by cost cutting cheap hdd etc.. tool less plastic fitting. This case all so puts pressure on my asus sabertooth z77 motherboard usb 3 (19 pin) port, due to the recess /stepped case. But with slight mod to case (hammer time) i can live with this.
Summary: Very big cabinet Why corsair calls it as a mid tower cabinet .The metal used for this looks poor than Cooler master CM 690 II which have similar price tag . Corsair should have to add 2 USB 2.0 Ports instead of the Fire wire port.Limited accessories are provided for the cabinet than that of CM 690 II.
