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

  • 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.

Great case with minor annoyances

  • Summary: First and foremost the packing is fine if you were taking it home off the shelf. However it is not made for the oafs at ups or fed ex. If it has any damage to the packaging don't accept it. This is a roomy. I am running a full size atx board and two evga 760's and have room for more. Makes it easy to keep it cool. The only cons are even with the bump its tight for cable management and i am running a fully modular power supply so i don't have extra cables.

The case is almost fine.

  • Summary: One of the standoffs won't fit properly. The side panel with the 200mm fan has a dent on a placement area where you were to add a 120mm or 140mm fan.

Power supply didn't fit

Nicholas, Amazon
11 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought a Corsair CX500M to use with this case, and I was disappointed to find out that the holes for the screws don't exactly line up. Two do line up, but the other two don't, and I was amazed to see that yes, it is the same brand, and no, they don't line up. I also had difficulty getting the side fan to work, but after I unplugged it and plugged it back in, it worked.

Great case! Dust magnet :(

Gavin Calvano, Amazon

  • Summary: Great case! Good stock fans, great q qfc çcairflow and super good looks. Cable management could be better but it is better than nothing or maybe I'm just bad at it. Lighting is cool I just wish it was offered in more colors. Ok the real problem is dust filters, there are none except for the bottom. If you get this great case I really recommend going onto frozencpu.com and get there custom made dust filters for the corsair 500r. They are so good at picking up dust.

Fantastic case, one defect.

John Snow, Amazon

  • Summary: Pros: Sharp looking, received plenty of compliments. Plenty of room, easily add upgrades. The fan speeds are easily controlled by a front panel toggle (you can also toggle the fan lights on/off). Plenty of room behind the motherboard for cable management. Cons: The black piece on top of the case (access for top mounted fans) has a cheap clip. It's designed so that you can press the top black cover and it will click in place.

A good starter case

Hayes Guidry, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a very nice case for a first build, it offers a large amount of cable management and cooling fans. It comes with 4 fans, 2 front, 1 side, 1 rear exhaust. The only fault in this case so far, the thumb screws on the back to tighten the case doors in place are already stripped, 3 of them are already stripped. There is lots of room for everything and it is a nice sized case.

  • Summary: Outstanding performance for a gaming rig. All though Corsair could have left off the fire wire on front panel. Thanks Corsair!

sturdy case

Micheal, Amazon

  • Summary: This case was easy to install in and it was easy to do all the cable management. The only problem I had with the case was the usb 3.0 to usb cable in the accessory's was dirty. It looked like they took it out of a 2 year old used computer and put it in the accessory box.
