Summary: First time ever building a computer and this beast did the trick to house everything.It has a nice simple black aesthetic to it that looks much better in person. It comes with four fans to boot ( in the rear, large side led fan and two led fans in front with the led being white). So if you have the leds plugged in (you certainly don't have too) it looks like a gaming rig without being as gaudy as an alienware or some other brand.
Summary: This case has everything I needed and then some. It has a solid build quality and good attention to detail in its design and construction. Just make sure that your cable management area is organized well, as it will make putting the side panel on much easier. Even with the bump out on the panel it can get a little snug when buttoning everything back up. Inside the case there's plenty of room for components.
My favorite compnent in my $1300 gaming PC. Buy this!!

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.
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.
Great looking, and better constructed than I expected for the price

Summary: This case is, simply put, an excellent product. I needed to upgrade my computer case to accommodate a new Corsair H100i liquid cooler. I did a bit of research and ended up settling on the Corsair 500r as my best option. I did not want a full-size ATX case, as those are far too large for my work area. But I also needed something with good airflow.
Summary: I have been using this case now for over 2 years. It has plenty of space, without needing one of those ridiculously huge full tower cases. I purchased this to redo my gaming rig, and I have no interest in showing off with clear windows or flashy lights. All I wanted was a case with sufficient space and cooling, and this one has delivered perfectly. I manage to keep my average ambient temps to around 40 degrees C, and 48 -50 degrees C under full load.
The case is big and roomy and is great for cable management

Summary: This case met all the expectations I was looking for in a case. The case is big and roomy and is great for cable management. The included fans are also quiet and look great when the led lights are on. I currently have an EVGA 780 classy and it fits fine, with even more room for bigger graphics cards. The Cooler Master Hyper 212 also fit nicely without any mods. The hdd bays are removable which is also a plus.
