Solid but has an annoying quirk

xillra fe, Amazon
14 August 2014
  • Summary: Great case. Easy to carry around. Only disappointing this is the front is really badly made. It looks nice but it has a slight bow over the ports so my ATH-M50 plug cant go in without popping out slightly due to it's large profile. It wasn't a problem when I first got it because it was still a tight fit, but it completely doesn't work anymore now. Hoping to see if a heat gun will solve it.

I like it

Luis M., Amazon
7 August 2014
  • Summary: I like the case, has a lot of room for cables and its heavy meaning that its good quality (not always but in cases, most of the time).The fans it brings are nice and quiet and if you touch the case you can feel a minor vibration but not much to worry about. 2 things I don't like is how close the power button and the reset button are from each other and another thing I don't like is how amazon sent me a case where the right front USB port didn't work.

Nice, low-key, edited, black case.

  • Summary: Great case. Nice looking, not flashy, but discrete, has good cord management, and quality construction. Case design has come a long way since the times of having to punch out the stamped metal back plates. It's easy to hand tighten most of the screws, has 3.0 USB up front, at the top of the case, not hidden by a panel, and uses a white light LED for the power button. I used a Corsair 500w PSU in this case, and really liked the ease of assembly and connections.

not slot removable like the PSU fan filter) Black interior paint

  • Summary: Case is extremely light, but poorly constructed and is loud. (cheap though). Harddrive mount is plastic, vibrations from a WD Blue drive is passed throughout the whole case. One of the fans that came with the case had a rattle, I just swapped it out (easier than shipping the whole case back) Pros: Very light. Lot's of fan mount areas. Fan filter for PSU, and front intake fan (part of front plastic cover, not slot removable like the PSU fan filter) Black interior paint.

You Cannot Buy A Better Case for Less !!! A Will likely Get a Worse Case for Anything More.

  • Summary: By far the best computer case I have ever purchased. I build PCs for myself. My builds are very budget conscious. This PC case is by far the best engineered product of its type I have ever had the opportunity to build. Like one would expect, the Corsair CX750 Builder Series ATX 80 PLUS Bronze Certified Power Supply fit perfectly. I am very happy.

Nicely built case

AdrianK, Amazon
14 July 2014
  • Summary: Nicely built case, with good fit and finish. It has a couple fatal flaws, however. Biggest problem, the internal drive cage has stops which place the back of a 3.5" drive right against the side panel. This means you MUST use 90-degree low-profile connectors for your drives. None are supplied, and in my case (using a RAID card with a SAS fan-out cable) none were available even from third parties.

Tyler Durden and Edward Norton are the same person!

  • Summary: I chose this case because I wanted something smaller and lighter than my old expensive Antec cases. I read a few reviews and saw the complaints about the drive cage and not much else so I went ahead with my order. The case is fantastic. First off it doesn't look like a toy case with a window to a neon cpu stripper lounge. It's a good looking case that's light and a true mid tower design. There's plenty of room inside for a large GPU and cpu fan.

Nice case with a few flaws...

Steve, dabs.com
7 July 2014
  • 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.

good case

G. Ramirez, Amazon
6 July 2014
  • Summary: not many cases have two usb 3.0 front ports in this range price is a good case but for me it have some shortcomings - the grill at the top, having kids is a risk with liquids , so I will cover it - the front usb 3.0 dual connector to the motherboard can get loose easily - the plastic hard disk case, in my opinion a metal one were better the good - no cables were left without connection - USB 3.0 ports at the front - excellent finish - fans are almost silent - bottom...

Like the cases

A Reader "retired scientist", Amazon
6 July 2014
  • Summary: Have bought two of these cases now. Impressed with clever design features. Like the cases, but Corsair needs to pay more attention to tiny details such as furnished screws (one did not have power supply mounting screws and one was missing a MB standoff). Minor things, but irritating.
