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.

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.

Incredible

Michael O., Newegg
23 March 2015
  • Pros: This is simply a beautiful case. Easy to use. Fantastic air flow. QUIET. Stylish. Dust filters are awesome. I love how easy it is to take off the paneling and "open it up" during gaming sessions (although it's not necessary). If I needed another case, I would buy this one again without even think...
  • Cons: I can't think of any cons.

Money Well Spent

Troy G., Newegg
28 February 2015
  • Summary: the front panel door isn't as great as advertised. It's NOT meant for someone who actually needs frequent front panel access (for media drives). The option to open the door from either side doesn't work well. it's nearly as likely that you will pull the door off as open one side.
  • Pros: Fantastic build quality. Dead silent. has a few awesome and mostly unique features like the push button side panel. I have very high end hardware in this case with about 10 total fans when you count case, video card, CPU and PS fans.... Would be hard to tell it was on at all if it didn't have a p...
  • Cons: no REAL cons.

Versatile, Sleek, Quiet, Clean - Luxury in a Beautiful Package and Price

Dustin Checketts, Amazon
11 February 2015
  • Summary: I built a gaming rig in this box over two years ago and I still get comments on how sexy it is. No windows, no lights... this doesn't need to be tricked out. Simply elegant. Not to mention that its engineered to dampen sound from vibrations, fans, etc.

Very nice design

Milton T., Newegg
15 January 2015
  • Summary: The panel that can cover the fan mounts on the side panel arrived with a couple of broken tabs. I did not remove an egg for three reasons: one- this seems more like a shipping problem than a quality issue. Two- I am not using the panel and therefore the problem does not affect my use of the case.
  • Pros: Roomy- it can handle a GTX580 with room to spare. Six slide-out drive trays with pins for 3.5" drives and holes for 2.5" drives. Clever front panel that can swing open in either direction. Adequate room for routing cables out of the way. Sound-dampening foam, including a cut-out that can cover th...
  • Cons: The slide-out trays take a bit of getting used to, since they are flexible and can be tricky to remove when empty. The front panel comes off easily if you are not careful, especially when lifting it.

Love it!

Kezang N., Newegg
10 January 2015
  • Summary: So far, I love it. I have had it running for close to 6 months. Runs very quiet and cold (I don't game, just a home pc). My built is pretty mundane: i5 quadcore processor, 16GH or RAM, Gigabyte MB, two SSDs, 1 TB HD, DVD/CD burner running on Windows 7 64 Pro.
  • Pros: Sleek design, cable management, fans, plenty room
  • Cons: Due to the design of airflow, dust seems to collect frequently in the front panel (air vents). Top also attracts dust (not easy to clean out)

Great case

Allan A., Newegg
2 January 2015
  • Summary: I didn't buy this from NewEgg because it was out-of-stock when I wanted to order it, and out-of-stock in some other places too. I was worried that it had gone out of production, so I ordered the last of three available from the one supplier I could find that had any in stock.
  • Pros: This case is well made, roomy enough, and very quiet. I am very happy with it.
  • Cons: None I can think of.

Corsair continues to make small improvements to their cases, and this one is particularly awesome

casart78, Amazon
7 November 2014
  • Summary: Having built several systems over the years, using both Antec and Corsair cases, I have to say this is my favorite case. It is nice a sturdy. The inside is very well designed and laid out. Cable management is the best i've come across. I love the flat black look of the case.
