Pros: Love the color of the case, and the fans. Fans are fairly quiet, and seem to be keeping things cool. Cable management was well done with this one. I was able to hide the clutter, and provide unobstructed airflow. Previous reviews commented on the side panels being tricky to remove/install...I did...
Cons: Not really a con, but a bit larger than I expected. That's all on me though, for not looking more carefully at the specs. Also not really a con, but I wonder what the availability of orange LED fans will be, should a failure occur out of warranty?
Summary: Amazingly well designed case, air flow and cable routing, clearly well designed. Needs additional 10mm vertical height clearance to use any Corsair water cooling solution, but excellent case, nonetheless. Power supply is on bottom, routing cables vertically along edge of motherboard or HD/OD stack.
Summary: I was really pleasantly surprised by this case. It had a lot of thoughtful design choices that I really liked. Putting together a budget build in this bad boy was pretty easy. The only real negative I can think of is that the frame does have a lot of flex in it when you remove both side panels, as...
Summary: First build ever and I kept coming back to corsair products. I was going to get a 970 and ended up with the very long gigabyte windforce 3x. I wanted to leave the option to upgrade to sli so I made sure a second gigabyte card would fit.
Pros: 3 quiet fans room for tons more. Room for super long gigabyte 970 cards (even sli) Room for all the things you need for a first time build with room to upgrade. Cheap Dust filters for psu intake and main front intake two USB 3.0 ports on the front.
Cons: Led fans could be a problem if you want a "theme." Side panels are a little flimsy and are a little complicated to put back on. The top is open for more fans, but lacks a filter. I'm worried the large holes will allow something big inside. The case isn't very high off the ground, and carpet would...
Summary: First build for many years and this case is much bigger than I expected. Plenty of room for expansion though, which is good. The bright red leds in the front fans can be left unconnected (or maybe controlled? Haven't gotten that far yet).
Summary: It was a pleasure to work in this case. I built a solid $600 system. And it's super quiet and clean looking. I most likely will purchase this again, if not a different Corsair case instead of Antec.
Pros: Very easy to install hard drives (slip 'em in). The dust pull-out trays are nice. Two extra spots for fan mounts, which I would use, and buy 2 more fans. Attractive case - professional and just a little edgy looking. The cable management is amazing to me. It was way better than the full tower I w...
Cons: To install the CD Drive, I had to remove the Ram and PSU from motherboard. It's a spacious case, so it was odd that it was so tight for that spot.
Summary: This was a client build, and so everything had to be fastened down for shipping anyway; but I really do appreciate that feature if I'm making something for myself.
Pros: Well laid out, well designed Almost completely tool-less* Good build quality overall Comes with two red LED, and one black fan. *See other thoughts
Cons: The case overall had the build quality that I've come to expect from Corsair, but it was missing some of the "Premium Feel" that I've grown accustomed to, even with their more budget oriented cases. Especially from the Graphite line; which tends to be oriented just-below the Obsidian line.
