USB 3.0 Problems

Timothy D., Newegg
16 March 2016
  • Summary: While the case is good, i would recommend buying a separate USB 3.0 Cable, and just replace the part your self because you are only going to receive the same defective part you had in the first place from corsair and waste your time installing, that said the case is not bad and neither is corsair...
  • Pros: - The Case is a good upgrade for any ATX or Micro ATX Mother board that needs more room, this case has plenty of it - The Case has good air flow, has 2 large fans already installed not to sure the actual dimensions but they are bigger than 120mm, other than the fan the case it vary open with most...
  • Cons: When i received this case i liked it very much, started hooking up my mother board and my new cooler master hyper evo heat sink, got everything hooked up all cables attached to their appropriate headers, and everything looked good, turned on my computer, the USB 3.0 port on the front panel I/O wa...

Great, sleek design, however...

Adam K., Newegg
15 March 2016
  • Summary: Besides my obvious gripe, I love this case! I would definitely recommend it, but not if you want a nice view into your computer, because that it will not do. Would I buy it again? No, I would not. But that is my personal preference. I would opt for something that has a clear view into the insides.
  • Pros: -Very nice cable management. -Roomy without being obtrusively large on your desk. Really the perfect size. -Very classy design (doesn't scream at you, but definitely has an edge to it if you add the right components) -Easy access to the insides. The side panel comes off and back on quickly and ea...
  • Cons: Why, oh why does corsair not offer a window on this computer without the holes for the fans??? I knew what I was buying, but over time this has annoyed me to no end. There are entire threads online on how to diy yourself a new window, because most people do not want the holes. Corsair, could you ...

Wonderful case so far

Ashlee Ringler, Amazon

  • Summary: Wonderful case so far. Love that it has 2 fans. Very roomy inside. Only con is that the front input wires are not long enough to reach their plug-in on the motherboard.

Solid case after 2 years

Andrew R., Newegg
17 February 2016
  • Summary: Clean the filters often as this can easily mess up your cooling.
  • Pros: The airflow in this case is amazing. You can mount 5 120-140 fans and 2 140 fans for intake at the front. There is a separate intake for the power supply with its own filter which is great where I am is really dusty. Being able to remove and use the left side to hide cables makes cable management...
  • Cons: I mounted a water cooler with dual fans to my CPU and case and because of the size the water cooler presses against the motherboard and made it very difficult to mount my Ram to my board. This is where I subtracted the 1 egg. Mounting the side of the case is often a choir as you will have trouble...

Matthew Linscott, Amazon
5 February 2016
  • Summary: Recently built a new computer and was replacing a very old case that lacked room for larger video cards. This came recommended to me after seeing several other builds using this case. Build quality is decent, case sides are a little flimsy and some plastic parts here and there.

Solid Case, Less-than-ideal Design

Tom M., Amazon
3 January 2016
  • Summary: I was impressed with this case, particularly for the price, but it has a couple of bad design elements that left me scratching my head a bit. The case overall is fairly well-built, and doesn't feel flimsy.

So So.

Eric K., Newegg
30 December 2015
  • Summary: Well it is definitely not a best idea to purchase this case in the end of 2015.
  • Pros: 1) good sized mid-tower case. 2) well fitted with other Corsair products--power supplies, liquid coolers, etc. 3) well organized front panel (some people might not like it) 4) many hdd bays as well as optical drives. 5) customizable space for case fans. 6) Easily marked for power, reset switch ca...
  • Cons: 1. Only 2 case fans are attached. Front, and back. 2. HDD bays are a nightmare. I thought that those bays with trays are so coooool. However, once it fitted, it won't be able to remove those hdd from trays before you eventually break them. To remove trays from hdd bays, need to squeeze the two-en...

Good Case, but Inferior Design

Miguel Bojorquez, Amazon
4 December 2015
  • Summary: While I like the case, it began falling apart after a few months of use. Now the whole front of the case is lose and will likely need to be replaced in the near future. This was due to the design of how the snapping mechanism works and could not have been avoided, merely delayed as any repeated...
