  • Summary: Another non-standard case which has a interesting design. The cable management is excellent. Lots of holes to route cables. Generally pretty good air flow and stock fans are quiet. I never experienced any rattling. It has a drive cage for 6 2.5"HDD or SSD, if thats what you need.
  • Pros: Excellent cable management, Six slots for SSD/2.5"HDD, SATA quick connect for two 3.5" HDD, Good air flow, Able to change CPU heatsink without removing the MB
  • Cons: Only 2 slots for 3.5"HDD, So so material. Lots of plastic components, No holes for liquid cooling tubes (in case the rad is outside), Poor manual

  • Summary: I bought this case for its great cable management possibilities as well as for airflow and to show off my system. As much as it accomplishes those goals, I am very disappointed with the build quality. I constantly hear vibrations coming from this case.
  • Pros: - Amazing Cable Management, - Great Airflow, - Massive Window, - Nice Design, - Clearance for the largest of air coolers (inc Noctua NH-D14), - hot Swap 3.5 inch bays (the only 2 you get though)
  • Cons: - Build Quality is Disappointing, - Vibrations, Vibrations, Vibrations, - Side Panels leave much to be desired

  • Summary: I ended purchasing this elsewhere as I could get it in store for a cheaper price. The concept of this case is stellar; the cube is eye-catching and effective. The execution in terms of build quality and materials used is poor.
  • Pros: Plenty of space and excellent airflow, Attractive design, Easy cable management, Large window
  • Cons: Almost impossibly cheap build quality; nearly everything moves with a small amount of force and quite often parts will rattle

A nice, fresh design. Semi-functional.

  • Summary: I like the division inside -- the motherboard mounts in the middle and the power supply mounts behind it. Strangely, it has dedicated mounts for up to four 2.5" hard drives but only two 3.5" hard drives (there are two external 5.25" bays that you could sacrifice but you'll need to buy generic...

looks great, quality not so much

  • Summary: I got this case for the looks, large sidepanel window, non-standard design, quite small for an ATX case in length and height - that's what I wanted. Building in this case is really easy, cable management is not an issue, there is more than enough space in the second compartment in the back.

Innovative design, great airflow but disappointing build quality

  • Summary: Corsair cases are just like American cars. Some of them are very pretty to look at but when it comes to build quality and reliability, they totally suck balls. I have a high end AMD gaming rig (FX-9590 and a pair of Sapphire R9-290's in Xfire).

Buena caja pero ventiladores muy ruidosos y construido en plastico.

  • Summary: La caja esta muy bien y me a bajado las temperaturas,pero los ventiladores son muy ruidosos.No es que se escuche como mueven aire,si no que les suena mucho el motor,como un rodamiento de bolas. Los tengo regulados a 700 RPM y es muy molesto el ruido del motor.

buena caja, componentes fragiles.

  • Summary: Muy buena caja de ordenador. Le he bajado la valoracion porque la pieza que inserta los discos duros es de plastico y ya he roto una patilla. Para este tipo de productos deberian de tener mas cuidado los fabricantes a la hora de diseñar las piezas.
