Thin materials make this case too fragile

Califlefty, Amazon

  • Summary: Like other reviewers have noted this case fails when it comes to use of materials making it almost, but not quite flimsy. It seems that Corsair chose to skimp whenever they had a chance. I would have preferred a thicker plastic case more in the style of Dell then this sheet metal box that reminds me of the cheap rejects piled up at Geeks are Us.

  • Summary: Upgraded from a coolermaster HAF922. While it was nice to have all the sound foam, and closed walls, it was very difficult to get the rig cool while maintaining low volume. I could get it pretty quiet, but it would become a toaster inside. Ended up returning it after a week.
  • Pros: Clean Design, attractive interior, enough room for a decent sized system.
  • Cons: Hard to get it quiet and cool.

  • Summary: Extremely disappointed with this case. It would have been great, except my case was scratched and one of the fans defective. Corsair puts a slip of paper inside each box that says "DO NOT RETURN" - don't trust them! I would have returned this on day one if I knew Corsair would leave me waiting for almost two months for a replacement case fan. I own many Corsair products, but this was my first experience with their terrible support.
  • Pros: Quiet, Simple, Good Layout
  • Cons: Scratched, Defective, Poor Support

  • Excerpt: An sich ein tolles Gehäuse aber die Art wie die Tür an der Front angebracht ist einfach nur unsagbar schlecht. Bei jedem Öffnen hatte ich angst, die Halterungen abzubrechen. Und es kommt wie es kommen musste: Nach 'nem halben Jahr hab ich jetzt alle "Ersatznippel" (4stck.) aufgebraucht und neue gibt's soweit ich weiss nur direkt bei Corsair. Wäre ja auch kein Problem, wären da nicht die ca. 25(!) Euro Versandkosten...

No cumple las expectativas

  • Summary: La caja tiene un diseño sencillo pero elegante, el problema es que lleva demasiado plástico malo, de hecho la tapa del lateral de los ventiladores me llegó rota con lo que no podía colocarse. No es lo que se espera de una caja de la marca Corsair, suelen usar materiales mejores. Lo bueno: - Lleva filtros antipolvo magneticos en todos los huecos para ventilador. - Posibilidad de instalar bastante ventiladores de 12 y 14 cms.
