Summary: This case is amazing. It has tons of room, while not being too much bigger than your older generation midtowers. It's well made and sleek, with good cooling, and plenty of space for Crossfire/SLI + cables + whatever else you might need. I hugged it after everything was built in satisfaction, and it's held up well.
Well built with easy access and great ventilation.

Summary: well made, plenty of room, easy to install components. front and back panels are removable with latches make for fast access.. all wires concealed under motherboard result in clean install. My MB/cpu has graphics and many other things built in, so I don't even have any cards to see.....wide open for great ventilation. Filter on bottom rattled from time to time, but once I found a quiet position, it was OK.
Summary: Great case, used this one for my first built and it was very easy to manage. Plenty of space and the stock fans have been sufficient for my use as well, not awfully loud but they aren't whisper quiet either. Couple fit and finish qualms however: 1. the removable screen up front for the intake fan is somewhat concave and doesn't fit flush with the piece of case above it (between the two clips at the top, directly under the disk drive slots).
Summary: This case is amazing. Looks fantastic and would support any type of build/upgrades I would want to do down the road. Pros: -Cable Management is fantastic -Airflow is great, a lot of fan mounting options and comes with 2 240mm fans out of the box. -More than enough room for watercooling -Build Quality.
One of the best looking case, but be ready to mod if you want silence

Summary: The 650D is easily one of the best looking mid tower case out there. It's quite sturdy and the aluminum front is very sleek, though the edges can be sharp and rough so be careful. I took off a star because it's quite noisy out of the box. Because of how close the front inner grill is to the front fan, it causes air turbulence which sounds kind of like a jet plane. I'm a silent pc case kind of guy and this bothered me too much.
Summary: I used this case on my first build and I am in love with the Corsair Obsidian 650D!!! It was easy to hide all my wires and the sides snapped on flush with the slightest bulge that only someone with OCD traits like myself would notice. The filters on the front fan and underneath the battery location is a wonderful tool. The additional USB 2.0 and 3.0 on the front of the case is greatly appreciated.
Summary: After 8 years with the same PC, I decided to build a new one. I selected this Corsair 650D and I'm very happy with it. It's a nice, elegant case that looks good sitting next to my computer table. What I like is everything, inside and out, is black. Even the cables and screws. Looks really good. The case is very well built except the hard drive trays are flimsy but they work fine.
Summary: This is bigger than I expected. Going from the typical computer you buy from a local electronics store this is much bigger. However, it is very easy to build a computer in. Both side panels come off and there is plenty of room. Everything is easy to install and well thought out. The only strike against this case is the USB 3.0 connections, as it is built right now they are pass through to connect in the back of the case to the back USB 3.0 connectors, but this takes up 2...
Quality + Forethought + Aesthetics - Compromise = Pretty Good Design (Perfect is the enemy of good.)

Summary: Pros: This case reeks quality. Everything is well thought out with the system builder in mind. My favorite features are: a multitude of grommets and openings for running cables behind the M/B, tie-down points on the back to keep cables tight against the M/B backplane, toolless CD/DVD drive install, easy open sides, pre-designed top panel for Corsair H100i CPU cooler, reposition-able drive cage to make more room for video cards, ability to swap giant front fan for two...
