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.
Summary: I am really happy with the noise isolation on this case. I have just the stock fans in it, and have a older Radeon 6970 + an air cooled AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1100T that had over heating issues in my last case and they are doing fine with all the sound baffles in place.
Summary: I wish Corsair will introduce an new revision of this case... but.. really... what do they need to fix?? Maybe change that silver front panel to black and less plastic. Sorry had to nitpick.
Pros: Quiet. I don't get reviews saying otherwise... if this case is noisy, then it would certainly annoys me because I'm the kinda person who spend 1+grand on one pair of headphones... Can you hear it when it's running? Yes, but only if you search for it. Note: I have a small desk and the case sits ri...
Cons: Too plastic-y? Looks ugly when the front panel is removed. After more then 2 years of use, something about left side panel probably went loose overtime and it developed a rattling noise until I removed the panel and re-seated it. Then the noise is gone... weird.
Solid build with plenty of builder-friendly features

Summary: + excellent build quality + sound dampening material works very well (even with stock CPU fans, etc.) + grommets for cable routing a nice touch + plenty of room for larger components (AMD 280X, etc.) ?
Summary: I'm not overly fond of how the hard drives require the utility of BOTH side doors... one to mount the drive (which is super easy) and the other side for the connection/power. I don't change out my drives all that often so no biggie.
Pros: - Beautiful, simple, quality construction - Sound dampening - Cable management - No windows... all utility
Cons: The motherboard tray is beveled (it is flat on most other chassis), which was obviously by design for the cable management on the opposite side. The problem with this is that on many [all x99] boards, the SATA connectors are angled to the side of the board and stacked in twos. This case effective...
Summary: I'm very impressed with this case. I mounted an Asus X99-Deluxe, Intel 5960X, 16 GB of 2800MHz RAM, Sapphire Radeon Vapor-X R9 290X, Kraken X61 liquid cooler. I have the two 120mm front fans as intake, the 120mm rear fan as exhaust, and the two 140mm Kraken fans as intake - blowing into the case.
Summary: This is a quality, sharp looking and understated case that keeps the decibels way down. I work my rig hard and it's was really nice to have the removable fan covers when I decided to improve circulation.
Summary: I downsized from a full tower Corsair 800d to this case and I wanted something that would be quiet. The quality is excellent and the sound dampening works well. I keep the fan covers on at all times and the door closed. With the 3 stock fans the case still stays pretty cool.
