The Best Case Ever

Patrick W., Newegg
13 May 2014
  • Summary: I don't like the direct connect drives under video cards. They are for easy access but I rather they put an extra SSD or HHD bay in the back. They collect a lot of dust on the bottom. Buyer should keep the mesh bag it comes in so you can lay it down when working on it. It prevents scratches to the case.
  • Pros: Everything. If you are planning to run a system with nothing but SSD drives and large gaming video cards in SLI or Crossfire this is a great case. I am using the Corsair H100i in push/pull setup for extra cooling when overclocking my AMD 3850. It has the size to do it all.
  • Cons: It takes up some space. But I have a media cart that it can sit on.

It's a pretty good case

Ernest P., Newegg
23 April 2014
  • Summary: I like it. Overall Feel of the case is great. Better Space in a more conformed case. Modding will be very easy.
  • Pros: Have my old motherboard in it for now. It's pretty good in terms of space. really good in airflow, but very quiet. My stock fan for my cpu(old) makes most of the noise in the case. Wire Management is VERY easy and zip ties are included but I haven't used them yet because I'll be replacing my old mobo soon.
  • Cons: Might have to bend the Disk Drive Cage to fit in the Blu-ray or DVD drive.

Awesome case, but one little problem

Joe P., Newegg
16 April 2014
  • Summary: It's an amazing case, and I love it!
  • Pros: -Incredible cable management
  • Cons: I only have one con for this case, and that is the quality of the drive bays. The plastic tabs have snapped off (while lightly using) 3 out 6 drive bays (including the hot swaps). They trays/tabs feel pretty cheap and seeing how they snapped so easy, i'm going to assume they are cheap.

  • Summary: Plastic is breakable but as long as you pay attention how to install in right way then everything will be fine!
  • Pros: More room, more friendly for components install everything. Also, Make it easier for Corsair H80i Cooling system.
  • Cons: Plastic....Just try to be gentle awhile any components install... slow it down. Do not make mistake by break plastic :-)

  • Summary: I wish the price was a little cheaper maybe in the $110-$115 range instead of $139 but overall it was worth it.
  • Pros: Lots of room and all my components fit the way I wanted them to. Cable management was a breeze and my h100i fit great as well.
  • Cons: none

Superb

glenn l., Newegg
20 March 2014
  • Summary: Intel Core i7 3770K @ 4.5ghz
  • Pros: This is possibly the nicest case I've purchased yet and I'm not new to PC building in any way. This case has so much room it's ridiculous. I'm using an XSPC Raystorm 240 with an added Black Ice 120mm rad, both in push/pull configuration with no issues. This case is literally perfect for me.
  • Cons: Cheap HDD sleds. Many have experienced broken sleds upon removing them and from personal experience, they'll break easily if you're not careful. The tool less drive bays are only plausible if you have full-length 5.25 drives such as an ODD. This made it rather hard to install my pump/ reservoir combo in the bay after all my cables were in the way. Nothing too big to complain about and it wouldn't affect my purchase decision regardless of prior knowledge.

Cheap construction

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: Lots of room for cable management and excellent airflow.
  • Cons: The two hot-swap drive caddies were both broken as other's have experienced. I figured that's not a big deal since they should be available on the Corsair website like for other cases for less than $2. Unfortunately I can not find them for sale.

I wish real life was this beautiful

Anonymous, Newegg
27 December 2013
  • Summary: I woke up one day and saw this case. It has dramatically changed my life. I used to get laughed at for being an ugly and a poor at school but I bought this case using money I got from shining my classmates shoes. Now I wear this case on my back using two bungee cords and now I am the bee's knees and everyone wants to be my girlfriend (sometimes even boys).
  • Pros: Best companion for honorable life
  • Cons: Does not do any other function than encase things
