Just a few things wrong.

Dustin Cain, Amazon
22 January 2014
  • Summary: I absolutley love this case, besides a couple small things that Im taking star away for. My PSU will not screw into the back of the case. The holes are misalligned. My PSU is the KINGWIN Lazer Platinum Series LZP-550 550W ATX 12V v2.2 / EPS 12V v2.91 / SSI EPS 12V v2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply. So it should fit fine. And the second thing is the USB 3.0 dock they give you doesnt fit in the case anywhere.

Mostly good

  • Summary: The first thing I experienced about this case is that it's on the heavy side. The weight combined with the (understandably) tight styrofoam cushioning made it necessary for me turn the box upside down and pull the box itself up in order to get to what's inside of it. I was a bit impressed by the inclusion of a fabric dust cover since my experience with other brands of computer cases has been the consistent usage of throwaway plastic wrapping.

Great case

  • Summary: My only complaint with this case is that fact that it is a little older and therefore doesn't have the correct USB 3 header to connect directly to the newer motherboards. So you have to get an adapter.

Outstanding case, well worth the purchase.

  • 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.

Bitchin' Case - few minor fit-n-finish issues

Steven S "Steven", Amazon
23 November 2013
  • 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).

One of the best looking case, but be ready to mod if you want silence

T.Q., Amazon

  • 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.

Plenty of room, great case.

Kaiser Kim "Electronics Fanatic", Amazon

  • Summary: As much as a good case it is, and how good it looks, the case doesn't have much cable space in the back. I have a pretty big and expensive rig in here, and the many cables going out the back don't have any room to fit from behind. There isn't much clearance I had to move the cables around a lot so I can finally get the back panel of the case on. But, it does have a lot of features, looks awesome, and I installed a NZXT Hue lighting system in it and it's looking awesome.

Excelent Case

Ben Wynn, Amazon

  • Summary: Big. No really, if you havn't bought a case in a while get a measuring tape out. It's hard to judge the scale on these things because they all look like rectangles, right? this thing was a good 5" taller and 2" wider and a few inches deeper than my last case. Plenty of room inside for just about anything. Good cable management, good stock fans. Filters on all incoming fans. Clips make taking the sides off easy.

solid case

  • Summary: like almost everything about this case, the only con is that it use older type internal USB 3 connectors. Corsair could've replaced it or sell as a separate part.

Great looking case

Luke Kwak, Amazon
16 June 2013
  • Summary: Everything about this case is awesome, but I wish I could put 2x 120mm fans in the front of the case like I can with the top. I need to mod it myself, but that takes quite a bit of effort, so I dropped this case one star.
