Summary: Very quiet case. It is a little larger than I expected, but works fine. This is my first case upgrade in 10 years, and I`m very happy with it. I use it in a DAW environment, so I used to have it over in a corner. Now it`s hard to tell if it`s on using software fan controllers.
Summary: This product does NOT support E-ATX 12"x13" motherboards. Corsairs website says it does and Amazon got the info off their website. The case itself is very nice, I really wish it worked. But E-ATX is NOT supported even though it says it is.
Summary: So sleek and modern looking on my desk. It really does quiet the entire system down. Even when I have my room fan off I barley even hear it (It's 5 inches away from me). I would totally recommend this case for sleek modern builds.
Summary: Case pros: -Sleek design -Front door is reversible -Spacious interior Case cons: -Bottom filter falls off with the slightest movement, magnets aren't very strong -Both of the side panels came warped just enough that I cant get them onto the case flush -There is a piece of plastic that prevents you from mounting a second 140mm fan in the front, it gets in the way just enough that the fan catches -The clips that hold the 5.25" drives in place sit so closely to the screw...
Summary: This is a great case - love the quietness of this case. The damping material and the case design, along with an HX Corsair power supply (not included with case - fan doesn't activate unless the P/S needs it) made this build the quietest I've ever built. Even with a GTX-770 graphics card - I had to check the lights to see if the system was on. Highly recommend this case.
Summary: I gave this case five stars, but there is one issue I have with it, and knowing it's a 'budget case' I didn't take any points off for it. With the hard drives oriented sideways, and no connector bracket to just slide the connectors into, similar to using an external dock.... you often have to take both covers off of the case to get to the HD connectors. Again, it's minor, but if you like to change drives often it can get a little annoying.
Summary: I bought this in order to have a quiet case. This case does a great job of dampening the noise. It is also well-designed inside. The only thing I miss is a spot for 2 1/2" drives natively. I had to get a drive tray for my SSD. Not a big deal though.
