Summary: For a Mid Tower, this thing is pretty good. This is my first build, and this thing is pretty sweet for what it is. It's got a nice large window to see all your wares, there is ample room for a full ATX board and my RM750 PSU, and a nice and sleek look to it. I changed out the three fans that came with it to some red LED ones, which was very simple. The reset button works well for being a bit depressed. But, I like that. There's no accidental push of it.
Summary: Just got this case today, and it looks great apart from two inconveniences. Firstly, the bottom magnetic dust filter was completely missing from package. Also the Plexiglas window was scratched near the hdd cage - maybe a result of the cage jostling during shipping? Hoping that I can get the dust filter sent without having to re-send the entire case :/ Update: Corsair has received/approved and already shipped replacement part - awesome!

Summary: Beautiful looking case and great compact quality ATX mid-tower with just a few exceptions. My first one arrived damaged (clear plastic window was pushed inward and cracked from external force that penetrated poor package) and this contributes to losing a star. Second one arrived good with one external box penetration but no damage to the case. Pros: - Great looking finish. - Quality construction overall. - Good dust screens.
Summary: Don't get me wrong, I think the 450D is still one of the better cases on the market. It's a showcase of straight forward thinking meaning that without making something too extravagant or over engineered, this case brings some great features to the table. But I will concur with some of the other reviews. One of the first things that stands out is the metal feels somewhat thin and without the structural bends in the side panels for instance, they would be very flimsy.
Pros: Design is simple yet aesthetically pleasing. Some really nice features are included to make this a very versatile case.
Cons: A couple small things... see Summary for full details.
Summary: The case have a great look. I wish have more space behind the mb tray for cables routing. Panels are very thin, i have scare to broke them.. I love the magnetic dust filter on the top and under the case, but missing one dust filter at the front (????) strange no ?
