Very good size for a mid-tower

Brandon B., Newegg
2 November 2015
  • Pros: It has more than enough room for my graphics cards, which is nice considering many mid sized cases don't support ones above 8 inches. All of the vents have air filters on them to help stop dust from collecting inside. You can also choose what vents you want to use as they can be blocked off.
  • Cons: You NEED a modular power supply or else your cable management will suffer. There is not a lot of room to route cables in the back which in my opinion is the only flaw of this design.

  • Pros: Sturdy and keeps my system super quiet. Has plenty of cable room for routing. I plan on buying this case again for my gaming computer.
  • Cons: Slightly bigger than your average mid-tower, or it seems that way. It would be nice to have the option to buy without the side vent that throws off the look.

Very satisfied after 2 years

Court C., Newegg

  • Summary: Would make the same choice again. I believe it will serve me well for years to come.
  • Pros: Plenty of room; I have an ssd and 3 hdd in the case. Very easy to make changes. Like that it has 3 fans and the filters seem to work well. Quiet, Not too tall. Very straightforward / clean assembly with modular power supply and other components.
  • Cons: None

A Great, Generally QuietER, Case

servalan, Amazon
20 August 2015
  • Summary: This is an excellent case and performs largely as promised. It is roomy, and well laid out, superior to my CoolerMaster full tower even though is is significantly smaller in volume. The 3.5 and 5.25 bays work just as advertised and are well isolated.

A great case

Timothy D., Newegg
16 July 2015
  • Summary: Make sure you need a case this large before purchasing. There are other, smaller cases in the Corsair family that have most of the features of this case without the imposing size.
  • Pros: This case is very easy to open and work within, and the fans are nearly silent. Upgrades are performed quickly and the front-mounted ports are extremely useful.
  • Cons: None that come to mind.

Like a Butler - Silent and Effective

Christopher S., Newegg
19 May 2015
  • Summary: It's not really a con, per se, but in the dim lighting I use it in most of the time, the power button light can actually begin to be distracting.
  • Pros: The case is solidly built. It won't win any awards for flash, but it's stylish and sleek in its understated way. It includes plenty of cable management (which I never take advantage of as much as I should), and its sound-dampening features are perfect. Even at 2 AM, with the ambient noise of the ...
  • Cons: None. This may not be the perfect computer case, but if not, it has to be pretty close.

  • Summary: It's surprisingly roomy for a smallish mid tower. Originally crammed a Noctua D14 into it, and more recently fit an H110i GT as well.
  • Pros: Looks great, if you're not into the whiz-bang of LEDs and windows. Keeps quiet, and still runs pretty cool. Has optional panels and tons of mounts for customizable airflow.
  • Cons: The door hinge broke within days of using it. There's a cut-out on the front for USB ports, which means you can't open the door if stuff is plugged in (seriously, how did they overlook that?). Seems to get exceptionally dusty, especially with the aforementioned panels.

The 550D Rocks!!

Rashad Abdul-Azeem, Amazon
1 May 2015
  • Summary: The case arrived fast. I was replacing an older case with this one. Installing the components, motherboard, 3 sata drives and 2 optical drives was a breeze. This case is extremely user friendly, sturdy and is of high quality.

Great case but check your motherboard compatibility better than I did.

Matt Smith "Maasmith", Amazon
15 April 2015
  • Summary: This is a well thought out case and very sturdy. Unfortunately this case will not work with the "ASUS RAMPAGE V EXTREME, Extended ATX x99 Motherboard". The corner of the board hits the bend in the mounting frame on the corner and renders the rear facing SATA ports inaccessible.
