Summary: I removed the rear exhaust fan and moved it to the front as an intake for easy positive case pressure. Intel i5-6600K Asus ROG Maximus Gene VIII Noctua NH-D15S Corsair Dominator Platinum 16gb 2666 Seasonic 760XP2 Samsung 850 EVO 500gb
Pros: Great looking small case from Corsair. Easy to cable manage. Will fit a Noctua D15 or D15S. Filters for both front and power supply are easy to clean and replace.
Cons: Front panel is easy to get dirty but not that big of a deal. Side window is also easy to scratch and attracts a lot of lint.
Pros: An absolute joy to build in. - Makes any build look show room ready if you are willing to do some work (route cables) :) - Fits and insane amount of water cooling for a case this size - Excellent airflow - Looks great - Dust filters are a nice touch - Provides room for even the longest video cards
Cons: Only two cons and both relate to the front panel cabling. - Is there really no way to slim down the USB 3.0 cables? Maybe combine the two cables into one early in the cable run and then only have to route one cable to the 3.0 header? Because as it stands with the thickness of the cables and the f...
Excellent Case (when I got one that wasn't broken)

Summary: The bad cases had no signs of handling damage and were well packaged. I suspect that the faulty clips for the front faceplate came from the factory. For a Corsair product I would think better quality checks would happen. Aside from that it is a great case when you get a good one.
Pros: It's got lots of room, easily fits a GTX970. SSD carriage tray is nice. Rubber grommets and good cable management options. Room for liquid cooling radiator (I am using ann H100i). Easily removeable and cleanable dust filters for front fan intake and bottom PSU fan intake.
Cons: The first one I received one of the tabs on the front intake removable plate was broken off. No sign handling damage, probably from the factory that way. I RMAd and the second one I received had an inoperable clasp that holds the front intake removable face on. The plate would not clip into place...
Summary: For my first custom build I wanted something with power density. The PC I had prior was a collection of donated parts from friends and bargain tier components. It seemed odd having a full tower with a single GPU, i3 with no AIO (not that it needed one), and only 8 GB of memory.
Summary: This case is just amazing, there is nothing out there like it in terms of price and quality, and it looks amazing. When I received the package, the case was well wrapped and protected with all the glass and sensitive parts having a easy to peel plastic cover on them.
Summary: I am so happy I went with this case. I decided to go with this case for my very first gaming rig for two reasons: 1. I did not want a full-sized build. Micro-ATX sounded nice. 2. I could not find many (any?) mATX cases with a side window.
Summary: This is a nice little case. Sure, you could almost fit an ATX board in most cases this size, but that leaves you with a lot of room to cable manage and make your build look great. Airflow is solid.
Pros: Air flow Roomy Well built - exactly as I'd expect from an "Obsidian Series" and from corsair overall Large, clear window Sturdy Looks nice and understated
Cons: Few included fans, but I bought all SP120s/AF120s so doesn't matter to me Shortage of 3.5" bays could be a con for some
