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. The two 3.5"HDD slots have quick connect making changing 3.5"HDD to be quite simple. I found only 2 slots for 3.5"HDD to be not quite enough. I hope there are two more slots for 3.5".
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. Kind of ridiculous considering its decked out with nothing but the best of fans (3x Corsair AF140 Quiet, 3x Corsair AF120 Quiet, and 2x Noctua NH-D14 fans on my cooler). I was honestly expecting better.
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. For what I paid I was expecting a case with minimal flex and little vibration noise.
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
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 5.25-to-3.5 mounting rails).
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). I have been looking for an upgrade (for a few months now) to supersede my ageing Coolermaster storm trooper.
