IF your looking for a clean case with plenty of airflow look no further.

Summary: In my hunt for a white mid tower case I found the 500r. I was looking for something that looked clean, didnt have all those stupid buttons or funny shapes. So far this case is perfect, enough room for everything. I have a h100i, (4) 140mm fans,(2) 120mm the ones that came with it, and the 200mm that came with it. Lots of airflow! I did have to buy dust filters as I wasnt satisfied with the supplied ones but a simple stocking solved this problem.
Summary: This case has been great for me because of the amount of "stuff" I have in it. The build quality is great and I love it's design. I purchased one of Corsairs H100 water coolers because it has the mounts for it in the top of the case and the combination is very effective. There are really only two negatives I've found so far. 1) I think there is a grounding problem with the front USB ports.
Summary: Update - The button to turn on the lights is 0.25 inches from the reset button....already reset the system once on accident. Isn't the reset button supposed to be near the power button? The front USB cable connection broke 30 seconds after I plugged it into the motherboard. It renders the front USB ports unusable. If I ship the case back I will have to pay for shipping from Hawaii, and shipping the replacement back to Hawaii. guess I will have to just live with it.
Summary: The Corsair 500r is extremely spacious with outstanding build quality. The expansion ports really impressed me because of the size of the case. I chose this case over the Corsair 540 Air and the Fractal Define R4. This definitely one of the best computer cases out there.
Summary: I bought this case because i needed a new one and cheap. I came from a Thermaltake Shark one. To my surprise is a well made case, modular, cable management, water cooler compatible and most of all, easy to work with. The plastic enclosure for the hdd are ok, disk holds without movement very well. Have plenty of space for video card and to add a lot of fans. Was a well surprise. Really great one for the money.
