Thin materials make this case too fragile

Calazon, Amazon
10 April 2014
  • 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.

Does not support CEB motherboards

Raymond L., Newegg
29 July 2013
  • Pros: Roomy, Quiet, Has fan filters and solid watercooling support
  • Cons: Case does not support CEB style motherboards which are just .9 inches wider this is due to Corsair's dumb decision to add a rounded bevel for the cable routing. With some CEB motherboards being listed as ATX is is problematic. And of course Newegg being newegg even tho the item has NOT left there...

UPDATE

  • Pros: update - see below.
  • Cons: Update on my previous review. Front door was missing. Ticket has been open with Corsair for over one month now with no reply. Be wary of poor customer service post-sale.

  • 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!
  • Pros: Quiet, Simple, Good Layout
  • Cons: Scratched, Defective, Poor Support

No cumple las expectativas

Miguel Angel, amazon.es
17 June 2012
  • 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.
