  • Summary: OMG this case is amazing. Everything was thought out for you. It fits everything with room to spare. It's only 2 inches smaller than most full towers so it looks smaller and is absolutely perfect for all your components without needing a giant full tower. It looks so sick!! IT's the QUIETEST case!!!! It looks so amazing. Looks exactly like the pictures in person. The LED fans are amazing and with the 200mm fan is silent on full speed.

... heck of a lot easier and it makes a nice looking machine

  • Summary: As a first-time computer builder this case made my job a heck of a lot easier and it makes a nice looking machine. Unfortunately, there was an issue with the USB3 ports that came with the case but customer service at Corsair was excellent and they had me a replacement part in a matter of a few days. The only reason I knocked off a star was because of the bad USB port. I'd still purchase it again.

Very nice case. Preinstalled fans are quiet

Richard, Amazon

  • Summary: Very nice case. Preinstalled fans are quiet. Leds are not super bright. Tons of room and very easy cable management. Several inches longer and taller than my old rosewill case. Required me to rearrange the desk a bit. 1 con. Front audio was broken. After several hours of fiddling I ended up cutting one out of my old case and splicing it in. Easy fix, but only if you have parts available.

7 October 2014
  • Summary: I ended up returning this product for a variety of reasons, the most important of which is that it has a ridge which, on larger boards, prevented my use of the majority of my motherboard's SATA ports, despite it being within the advertised form factor. Another issue, which I hope is rarer, was that the case I received was missing the manual, and many of the screws it should have included..

It is a wonderful case. Plenty of space

carl, Amazon

  • Summary: It is a wonderful case. Plenty of space. The mounts for the motherboard were all in place, and without need of adjusting. I am very pleased with the cable management. The only two reasons I rated this 4 star is because one of the thumb screws that hold the side panels on was terribly warped upon arrival; and that was caused by the second reason of there being a noticeable dent on the inside lip right in line with the whole for the thumb screw.

Case is easy to open

Rekluse, Amazon
14 August 2014
  • Summary: The instructions that come with the case are somewhat unclear. It was my first time building a PC, and the three motherboard holes along the top of the case do not match the ones throughout the rest of the case, and this threw me off considerably. The wires that are included within the case, managing the LED's and fans, were also somewhat confusing to me. There are two small fans, with LED's, on the front.

The best computer case I have ever owned

Harry G Burton, III, Amazon
3 August 2014
  • Summary: This is the best case I have ever owned. Multiple fans included run quietly. The layout is spacious for an ATX mid tower. The led fans give it an awesome look. It comes with a USB 3.0 to 2.0 adapter for older boards and has good filtration for fan intake. I find it versatile for complex workstations or especially gaming in that closed loop water cooling units are easily mounted.

This case is built like a beast for cooling

  • Summary: This case is built like a beast for cooling, the only problem was Corsair switched the power and ground wires around leading to some big problems.
