Summary: Would buy again. Corsair support was right on the money. I saw some reviews saying they had issues with Corsair support. They must have altered their approach because I had no problems in August/September 2015. Very efficient service.
Pros: There is everything here to manage a six drive, two video card rig .
Cons: Be careful with the plastic feet. They are surprisingly brittle and an essential part of the case. I broke them, but Corsair's RMA immediately mailed me a replacement part.
Summary: Nice i got 2 140mm noctua fans on the top 1 120mm on the rear. And the NH-d14 on my cpu so its quiet for the moment vs a push pull sound. I only have 2 wd black 1tb hd, and 1 240gb ssd.
Pros: IMO in the 4 years ive had the case so far the true pros are still what i got it for. -spacious -well thought out accommodations ^dust filteres ^rubber gromits ^no thumb screw panels ^window that isnt gaudy ^bottom mount psu with dust filter for intake. ^front hd dock Its truly easy to build in t...
Cons: After 2-3 years the 2 big fans died on me. when i replaced the front 200mm i had to remove the hd cages since the "cooler master" fan i got to replace it was thicker. I guess if you got to see some fans in person you could get a correct one. I guess its a waiting game to see what/when the owner o...
If I was any more in love with this case I would marry it!

Summary: Somebody had their thinking cap on when they designed this one.
Pros: The list of pros is long as this is a very well thought out case. *I like my cases to be understated and not scream for attention. * I got this and the rest of my Cosair gear with the sails- which are a vastly superior logo to the new horrific you-know-what stamp. I consider flat front faces to b...
Cons: The only observed flaw is one of the expansion bay holders snapped and I had to glue it back together.
Summary: I've just seen that this case is being discontinued. I hope they come out with another one just like it, with minor improvements. Best case I've ever seen.
Pros: Accessibility, with latching side panels; front panel USB ports; ease of installation of parts and connectors. SATA dock on top of the case, for temporarily connecting a bare HDD or SSD outside the case. Handsome.
Cons: Mid-tower turns out to be a wee short for my ASUS X99-Deluxe motherboard. Was unable to use brackets 1 & 8 of the case, so for that MoBo there are only 6 slots available. The double cable for front USB 3.0 connectors makes for a lot of thick cable. Fortunately, the availability of adapters, makin...
Summary: I replaced a nice (big) Antec 900 case to get this system in - Asus Sabertooth 990Fx, Asus R9270 video card and Corsair RM750 modular power supply with 6 drives including 2 X SSD to fit . I built it in the old case and the cables simply took over the case, even considering the modular power supply.
Pros: Well designed. Elegant. Edges are smoother than most. Has wire way behind/below the motherboard. The main case is as a result clear for good air flow. Replaced the rear fan with a Corsair H80i CPU cooler. Has filters in the front and below the power supply (have cats and terrible house keeping). ...
Cons: It's big - most would not be affected. Expensive, for me worth it. Probably should include a USB 3.0 X 20 pin connector for appropriate motherboards. Probably should include a filter for the rear fan (the H80i recommends pulling air into the case).- might be useful aftermarket accessory.
Summary: Overall very pleased with the case. I spent a really long time picking out a case. I wanted high end features like removable dust filters and a solid frame without having to purchase a full sized tower at a high price.
Pros: This is a very solid case. I previously had a CM HAFx (and older model of the HAF xm) which I thought was solid, but this is much more so! I really like the removable dust filter feature - a huge plus for me. It keeps my case a lot cleaner than my old hafx. The airflow is plenty for the moderate-...
Cons: The power button is a little more difficult to press than expected. Occasionally I have to press it a couple times because it doesn't register the first time.
Summary: This case is absolutely amazing. Movable hard drive cages are awesome. I took one cage out, and moved the other cage by the PSU so I could fit my Cooler Master Blue LED 200 fan in the front. Looks great shining through the front filter.
