Summary: Picked this case for my first build, it does the trick. Build quality is good, aluminum panels, plastic hinges, molding and top cover. Four drive bays is enough for most set-ups and let's be honest, you can put SSDs anywhere. It fits my gigabyte gtx 970 windforce cooler which is a statement.
Summary: great case. easy to build in, filtered air intakes that are easy to access and clean. very quiet with good air flow. I love working with corsair cases. they are very good to excellent build quality and very well planned out with quality materials.
Summary: Okay let's be real, Corsair's definitely on crack. For this price there's so many things wrong with this case, at most it's only worth $60-70. The only thing that's well built on this is the front panel, the rest is something that you'd find in a $40 case.
Pros: Nice clean look. Fan controller. Quiet.
Cons: Side panels and interior are flimsy. Cable management needs improvement. The tool-less mechanism for 5.25in bay is trash. Some faded spots on my front aluminum panel. Magnets.
Summary: Great case for the money. Very happy with the purchase. Recently rebuilt from an older case with smaller, noisier fans. I am not running hybrid cooling for both my CPU (top 280mm radiator) and my GPU (rear 140mm radiator with 120mm fan assembly) and it's working well.
Pros: Roomy for a mid-tower case. Noise dampening material on the door panels and front panel. Fan mounts for 120mm with capacity of up to 140mm fans for the hybrid CPU Cooler radiator mounting on top; supports up to 280mm radiators. Great case for a good price.
Cons: The Corsair Carbide series such as this case lack side ventilation fans. This is not a true 'con' per-se just an important note. If you want/need side fans check out the Corsair Obsidian series. For a quiet case, if you use hybrid cooling, atmospherically sealed liquid or liquid cooling, you shou...

Summary: My only complaint is that the cable area behind the motherboard is not deep enough. As it is, any time I have to take the panel off, I have to 1) have somebody help me hold the case as I push the panel in so it can slide in, or (2 disconnect all the cables from the back of the case (there are about...
Pros: Looks great, plenty of room inside to hide cables. Got it on sale for $79.99 (includes $10.00 rebate). There are plenty of videos on Newegg & Youtube for unboxing of this case. Would recommend watching the videos to see if this case is for you.
