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: I like the case overall, but it doesn't stand out that strongly for me. The lack of documentation caused it to take a lot longer to install than necessary. The video online did not help figure out how to mount the power supply and guess what.. if you're building your PC you're not online! A constant pet peeve is the drive bays seem to amplify not dampen the sound from my hard drive. Never noticed it on my old antec case, but sure do now.
Pros: Spacious, nice cable management, can turn off annoying LEDs, can fit large graphics cards
Summary: After realising my old setup was producing enough heat to boil a small lake, I took the plunge and bought a new case, with the intent to upgrade everything else over the course of the next few months. The case was top priority to get the heat situation under control, as anytime I wanted to eat chocolate, it would melt as soon as I took it into my room as if I had stepped inside a volcano. Oh, and it was probably melting my components very slowly, too.
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.
Summary: Das Gehäuse ist soweit eine solide Sache. Es bietet ausreichend Platz. Vier Festplatten, ein paar Laufwerke, etc. Gut zu bewerten ist der Luftdurchfluss des Gehäuses, da es nach oben hin geöffnet ist. Man sollte von nun an also nichts mehr auf der Gehäuse verschütten, denn ansonsten hat man einen Kurzschluss und eine hohe Rechnung.
Cons: Staub, Lautstärke, dünnes Metall, Plastikeinsätze für die Festplatten
