Summary: Firstly when I opened the box and got the case out of it's box to build a PC for a friend, I thought what a nice case. Well built and practical. But then as time went on there were a few silly problems. Firstly, the power supply's fan faces down right at the bottom of the case. There is a removable filter on the case, but it seems strange to have a fan virtually flat against the floor.
Summary: Maybe have a option fully loaded with fans.
Pros: title says it all, this case is awesome! The airflow is superb, up to 8 fans, bottom mounted PSU, cable management is great, i hide all my wires in the back of the case. Solid build quality, paint quality is also solid. Oh yeah the fan mounts have rubber grommets so no vibrating noise . Power Light is a nice mellow white, not too bright at all. Seriously buy this case

Excerpt: Needed a full size case (though this is "mid-tower" this thing is a beast). Room for 4 additional 120 or 140 mm fans, you can have as few or as many as you'd like. One in the front and one in the rear come with the case. Installing parts was easy, the drive enclosures work like a charm.
Summary: I love Corsair! This case feels very sturdy and it's roomy to a point. I tried to put a liquid cooler in it and because of the heat sinks on my mother board was not able to get it to fit. I ended up selling to a friend who uses it as an office computer. That is one reason I like this case. It's got the room for decent gaming rig but also looks professional enough to be an office computer. Would recommend the 300R though if you need room for water cooling.
Summary: This is a great case and I love it!! It's designed with the PC builder in mind. There are plenty of fancy, and more expensive cases out their, and I've had my share, but none of these can really compare with the 200R for functionality. By design, it's well ventilated and it won't retain heat; if need be there's plenty of places to add extra cooling fan's, but that'll probably unnecessary.
Summary: This is a very nice case for the price. I did not experience any difficulty mounting all my hardware inside. I especially liked the no tools mounting of drives etc. I wish they had an optional transparent left side cover, maybe they will make one available in the future. the manual is not much to write home about, but I was able to find the information I wanted on You Tube.(how to remove the front panel) on You Tube.
Summary: I upgraded the motherboard of my primary home desktop PC, and decided to use the older motherboard (an ASUS M5A99X EVO) as the basis for a backup/secondary computer build. This Corsair case was purchased for that purpose. The case and other parts arrived yesterday (3/24/14), and I proceeded to install the components. The ASUS motherboard went in without any problems...
