Slight problem, otherwise a good case

Anonymous, Newegg
7 July 2015
  • Summary: Why is this a problem in a modern computer case? Good grief.
  • Pros: The case looks nice and has two great dust filters. The included fans have been reliable so far and I can't complain about the internal layout, which is spacious and easy to work with.
  • Cons: I purchased some AeroCool Shark 140mm red LED fans for this case, and soon after installation I noticed a scraping sound. It turns out that the fans were scraping against the intake filter. I 'fixed' this problem by using a few pennies as shims to keep the front filter away from the fans. I reall...

Average

  • Summary: An average case for an average price. Cable management is a bit finicky with stiff cables, but overall it's easy to keep everything neat and cool with this chassis. Rig Specs: i5-4690k @ 4.0ghz Superclocked EVGA GTX 970 4GB MSI B85-G41 PC Mate Corsair H75 Corsair RM750w Gold Corsair 300r Windowed...

Underwhelming

KRM, Amazon
4 February 2015
  • Summary: Ample space, holds all my parts, good airflow. Could stand to be slightly more substantial. No issues worth an RMA but If I could do again I would look for something different (maybe spend more on an Obsidian 450D) This would not be a bad case for $60.

Meh

Georg R., Newegg
4 January 2015
  • Summary: I want to revise my rather favorable review for this case from further below and would like to take at least one, if not two eggs off. The reason simply that the case for the price does not offer enough!
  • Pros: Price
  • Cons: Price, lack of features, sound level, lack of cover and dust filter for top opening and side, a lot more.

Expansion Slots Don't Line Up

Trenton G., Newegg
2 November 2014
  • Summary: My specs: XFX 280x Black Edition i5-4690k Gigabyte GA-z97x-UD3H-BK Rosewill Capstone 750W-M
  • Pros: - Cheap - Spacious - Lots of fan spots - Decent Quality
  • Cons: I have two minor problems with this case: 1. The sides of the case have a tendency to warp which makes putting them back on a hassel. 2. The expansion slots don't quite line up with my graphics card. The frame of the slot overlaps with the HDMI port on my card slightly which makes it short out wh...

Smart Interior, Flimsy Panels

Troy N., Newegg
1 October 2014
  • Pros: -Interior is smartly designed and easy to work with; basically everything you've heard about Corsair cases. -Plenty of locations for fans -Nice minimalist design -Front panel ports located on front
  • Cons: -Flimsy panels are bowed when installed. I came to this case after using one of the old HAF 922 cases, which was a lot sturdier. -Reset button is ridiculously small -Headphone and mike ports are not colour coded, not a huge deal, it just helps when it is dark.

OK Case

Connor C., Newegg
16 August 2014
  • Summary: Very nice looking case, but definitely not for beginners.
  • Pros: Nice, simple looking case. Both Sides open on the case for easy, tidy wiring. Not to heavy. Case has many fan places and easy mounting. Hard drives and optical drives easy to mount. Power supply easy to put in.
  • Cons: Very bad beginner case. It DOES NOT have ANY exposed metal to get rid of Static while building, you need something else. Hard to clean.

tight fit case

  • Summary: I got a GTX 760 and the case has a spot for 2 side fans however with the cables giving power to the vid card the fans have no room.

Decent case

Erik S., Newegg
8 March 2014
  • Summary: Decent case for the price, there are better ones out there for the price.
  • Pros: - Nice sleek design - Decent cable management - Easy to setup - Overall nice hardware placement and space
  • Cons: - Hard to plug L-shaped sata or power cable to 2.5"HDD/SDD, the case's mount tray is in the way - Window panel quality is ok, squeeky - Basic side panel slots - Rear fan slot only 120mm - Power LED light stopped working after 2 days (button still works fine though) - Not for sound proof

Almost Content - Somewhat Dissapointed

Concerned, Amazon
28 February 2014
  • Summary: I just finished building a new gaming rig using this case, so I spent a lot of time around this bad boy and here's what I've concluded. Pros: - Lots of vent room, I have six fans not counting the water cooling system and this thing flows -- I left the side panel nude w/out any fans and it has been...
