Not for me

Rich, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: I was looking forward to receiving this case for my new build but, upon arrival, I was sorely disappointed. It looked like they had a fifth grader designing the airflow on this box. There were holes, and more holes, and holes next to fans. The were holes EVERYWHERE. This case has no chance for orderly airflow; cool air in, hot air out. It looked like they had a hole cutting contest during design.

Great Case, Fan Issue, NO Customer Service Response

Matthew R., Newegg

  • Pros: Great case for cable management, fans look really cool when they work
  • Cons: I am having a major issue with the oboard fan controller/the 200 mm side fan. I am pretty sure there is an issue with crossed wires from manufacturing (poking around online, that seems to be common). I used Corsair's customer service portal (which is really cumbersome) and they said they would respond within 1 day.... Only they haven't responded at all. They have a button for Live Chat support during certain business hours, but no one has been on at the appropriate ti...

Not compatible with Rampage III Extreme mboard

N. "N.", Amazon

  • Summary: Loved the case when it arrived, well built, lots of customisation for fans. However, screwing in my Asus Rampage III Extreme motherboard, which has its SATA ports placed at the edge of the board, I noticed that the motherboard plate is indented by a few millimeters, so that the motherboard fits snugly into it.

Hatte mir mehr erwartet

  • Summary: In Anbetracht des Preises konnte dieses Case meine Erwartungen leider nicht erfüllen. Die Pulverbeschichtung ist qualitativ gerade noch akzeptabel. Wäre schön wenn ich das gleiche über die Spaltmaße zwischen den einzelnen Verkleidungselementen sagen könnte, aber leider nicht möglich. Insbesondere zwischen Seitenwand und Front tut sich ein von unten nach oben weit auseinanderlaufender Spalt auf. Das abnehmbare Mesh-Gitter auf der Oberseite liegt schief auf.
