Buy the NZXT S340.

William P., Newegg
26 October 2014
  • Summary: I thought Corsair was known for quality control and good customer service, but customer service sent me a new I/O (which fixed nothing) and told me tough luck with the motherboard. Ouch. Please, just buy the NZXT s340. I built a PC for my friend with it and it was flawless.
  • Pros: Looks great, features are up to date. Seemed like a great buy for $70.
  • Cons: Nothing innovative, large for a mATX case (larger than mid-Tower NZXT s340 which i strongly recommend over this case) Everything pretty much broke. First it arrived with a large nick in the front bezel, aluminium shows through. Second, the 120mm fan ticks. Things that broke during normal use- whe...

  • Summary: very disappointed in corsair

looks great, very hard to work on

Ryan V., Newegg
19 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this case with high hopes but was disappointed right from the start. It was very hard to get everything built and when I popped the front off a small magnet (that holds the door closed) fell off as it was simply hot glued to the case (very cheap).
  • Pros: cool colors, nice size, looks great
  • Cons: VERY hard to work with, front panel is poorly constructed, cable management is non-existent, airflow is bad if you add a graphics card

Poor quality control and build quality

Luke C., Newegg
2 December 2013
  • Summary: My father who has been in the IT business since the early 80's decided to build himself a new rig. He decided on this case due to reviews and my input which was based on personal experience with Corsair products.
  • Pros: *Looks good
  • Cons: *Poor build quality (similar to a Rosewill Challenger) *Very thin sheet metal (again, Rosewill Challenger) *Front bezel was broken out of box *Missing SSD cage *Motherboard tray flexes with very little pressure *Heavy dust and metal particles found in case

System wouldn't boot in this case

Tina S., Amazon
9 October 2013
  • Summary: I know the title sounds crazy, but I re-installed a working system into this case twice and it would not boot up. Tried two different power supplies and rewired everything. I ended up moving my computer parts back into my old case and it booted right up.

Micro? What's exactly "micro" about this HUGE case?

Em, Amazon
9 August 2013
  • Summary: Totally misleading definition by Corsiar, it seems outside like a true Midi case and takes lots of space on your desk. The description here doesn't give you dimensions so I will: 45cm * 21.1cm * 44cm For you to understand how redicilously BIG, TITANIC it is, see the dimesnsions of my SilverStone...
