Summary: After building a system with the Corsair 250D for a friend, I knew my next case would be from the same line. I can also highly recommend that case if you are looking for mITX and don't nee as much space for a CPU cooler and GPU.
Pros: Looks great. Excellent price. Very easy cable management. Nice size for a mATX board, large heatsink (Hyper 212 EVO), and long GPUs (Gigabyte 970 G1, 312mm). SSD cradles and dust filters are a nice touch. Free additional red LED 120mm included as an add-on for buying the case (just so happened to...
Cons: If you have an optical drive, it kind of ruins the aesthetics. I actually opted not to put my drive in since I never use it anymore. Bulky USB 3.0 cables. Less airflow from the front of the case due to design, easy to work around though.
Summary: Bear in mind this review is NOT a reflection on newegg. Wow... Just absolutely wow... When this case arrived i was excited. I mean. Its a corsair case... They make great stuff. I buy alot of their goods and am always pleased.... Not today... The front of the case was TAPED ON... THREE TIMES...
Pros: None... Yet....
Cons: I'm sure there are none to be found.... On a properly packaged case.
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.
