Perfect

Alan P., Newegg
7 July 2015
  • Summary: I moved the two rear fans up to the top so that my H60 water cooler could mount nicely. I needed a better case with ventilation for my hard drives which were running hot and this did just the job.
  • Pros: Attractive design, cable management, plenty of fans and still quiet.
  • Cons: I thought the cable management was a bit tight, additionally I wasn't able to find where to plug in the power button LED light but I couldn't be bothered to fiddle with that.

Bought two of these. Fantastic products

Tim Y., Newegg

  • Summary: Here is my configuration: i7 5820k OCed to 4.4 GHz GTX 980 TI 64 gb ddr4 2800 Mhz ram 5 SSDs 2 HDDs MOBO: Asrock x99x killer 1000w G2 Supernova PSU Everything fit perfectly
  • Pros: Nicely built. Looks amazing. It was perfect for me because it is 1-1.5 inches narrower in the bottom width which made it fit perfectly with my computer desk ( i have a guitar pedal board on the floor). Very spacy. I have a master and a slave machine both in these beautiful cases. H100i Liquid coo...
  • Cons: One of the cases had a loose screw on the side but no biggy...

Corsair shows no love for thumbscrews.

  • Summary: PROS: - Great cable management. Although, it was a bit of a hassle with some cabling, including the angle between the cable holes and the motherboard when my motherboard unfortunately had 90 degree ports... yeah.

A good case, if you want the basics

Michael L Vetsch "Dragonvet", Amazon

  • Summary: This was my first new case purchase in quite a number of years. I did extensive research to find the features I liked and the size I wanted etc. Corsair makes great products in general so I went with them. Overall I really like the case. It's on the small side for a mid tower, but adequately large.

Good, but not perfect

Adam J., Newegg
20 May 2015
  • Summary: This is only the second system I have ever built for myself, so I don't have a lot of experience. Take my criticisms with a grain of salt. This is an excellent case that worked wonderfully for me.
  • Pros: Very solid construction Quiet, LED-lit fans included Subtle, tasteful good looks Large for a mid tower (fits large graphics cards & CPU coolers) Easy, no-problem installation of MB and disc and optical drives Excellent cooling, yet quiet No adapter needed to install SSD
  • Cons: The biggest problem I have with the case is the design of the right side panel and the cable management. The cables route nicely through grommet-protected ports in the inner "bulkhead," so that's no problem by itself. But the panel on that side of the case (actually both sides, but the right side...

Power button non-functional

Jacob W., Newegg
9 May 2015
  • Pros: Interesting cable management solution. Removable panels on 3 sides make for easy access.
  • Cons: Power button was non-functional out of the box. Using the reset button lead to function as the power button instead. Very annoying, but not worth the hassle of uninstalling all my components and going through the RMA process.

All and more

21 April 2015
  • Summary: Bonus - there is a switch on the panel to turn off the LED's on the fans, I love it, the LEDS and side windows never appealed to me and being able to turn em off, fantastic
  • Pros: the open space, air flow - after moving my components out of my old case with all the cables, looking like a squid trying mate my motherboard, its hard to believe the roominess. I easily add 2 top fans, and was running in a short time. I saw some people had issue with the huge side fan, took a mo...
  • Cons: None, well the shipping box had a ding, but the case untouched, so well packaged

It would be nice if I didn't have to turn on a flashlight ...

M. McMillan, Amazon
14 April 2015
  • Summary: CONS: The built-in fan controller is weak, but it's only meant for two fans that come with the case so I let it slide. I have my own 5-channel fan controller that I'm using. I see no HDD leds on mine, not sure why yet. 2 front USB ports that aren't recessed or angled back.
