Summary: Internal configuration effectively blocks use of some IDE ports on E-ATX boards. I can get by for now using only the top row ports (since my board has a lot), but if I ever need the bottom row some metal cutting will be needed. Other than that, a good case.
Summary: This is an all around nice case. It has an internal usb 3.0 connector. The first one i received came in the actual retail box. They didn't even pack it in anything; therefore it was dented when i received it. This case also acts very funny when trying to use the light button on the front of the case. The led's look cool but they won't stay on because of a faulty button. Got a second one with the same issue, so i am getting the obsidian 650d and returning this case.
Summary: The only real problem that i have with this case is the corsair H105 Hydro cooler does not if in this case. I think its really crap that they make a case for their Coolers and the new ones don't fit & they are to lazy to update their sight to tell you so :(...
Summary: While the case looks amazing and has tons of room, I'm fairly dissatisfied with the dust filtering, the included fans, and the proprietary fan controller. Including a fan controller which isn't compatible with aftermarket fans seems (to me) to be a stunningly stupid move - especially when you consider that the included fans aren't very good. So for those of us concerned with case airflow, there are two options.
Pros: Very attractive design, Excellent quality powder-coating which matches the white plastic very well, Lots of room for a midtower, Comes with 4 fans, Tool-less HDD and optical bays, Corsair build quality, Lots of room for cables behind the Motherboard tray, USB 3.0 ports on the front I/O
Cons: Included fans don't move much air and are fairly noisy, Included dust filters are poor, No dust filter at all for the huge side panel mesh, Fan controller uses a proprietary connection rather than normal 3-pin, so it won't work with aftermarket fans
Summary: Good case but it is too expensive for the quality. It has good air flow but not enough i had a haf 922 wich was way better in term of airflow. The front usb 3.0 panel is cool. I would buy something else if i had to buy another case.
Pros: Look very good, very silent, great cable management, perfect for corsair h100 radiator, great looking led on fan.
Cons: The white finish is cheap quality, a bit expensive, the reset button never worked, the fan look cheap, not the best air flow., Not enough room for custom water cooling radiator.
Summary: If you're buying this, you probably want a lot of air flow. If you want a lot of airflow you probably want better fans. Well guess what... Corsair uses proprietary fan controllers, that means you can only use the fan controller on fans that corsair makes for this case. That really sucks. Either you stick with crappy fans or a useless fan controller and a bunch of dangling cables. The case itself is great, but the fans/controller are so crappy it gets 3/5.
