Summary: The front cover has 2 small pegs holding it on to the case. the cover is metal plated and has some weight to it. I received the case with one of those pegs broken. I put in an RMA with corsair. I received an approval from corsair to have an replacement part ship to me.
Summary: I was going to go into a long detailed review, but my complaints are the same as every other review you'll find online. The bottom line is that this case is very overpriced, especially when you can find an Arc Mini R2 for roughly the same price but with far superior build quality and features.
Summary: I absolutely love the case, really well made and the wire management is marvelous. I would warn anyone who is purchasing this case though to be wary of the cooling system used. The specs say it will house a 240mm dual fan radiator, unfortunately for me I purchased the corsair hydroseries h105 only...
Pros: The case is very sleek and nice looking. The cable management (routing behind the panel the system board sits on) does a decent job of keeping things tidy inside.
Cons: After 4 months, the audio jack in the front panel has started to fail. When I have my headphones plugged in the sound will randomly cut between headphones and speakers. I installed the latest Realtek audio driver suite for the motherboard. While that didn't fix the problem, it confirmed the issue...
Summary: I've recieved two of these in a row with scratched paneling and interior's from the factory, the paint is so thin or so poor in mfg that it really shows, Scratches on chasis by feet base on two cases in a row... what more can I say?
Pros: Cheap, Great Design, Great cabling options and routing
Summary: come on corsair you make a nice case then you don't tape up the front panel (good enough) the panel moves around in shipping and scuffs up the front of the case = not good maybe its the shoddy shipping company you use ONTRAC... don't get me started on them!
Pros: nice design well made and sturdy silent (but fans move little air???) like the brushed aluminum front
Cons: upon opening box, front aluminum panel was unattached from case, the tape corsair puts on to hold it down is way to inadequate so one of the clips is broken to hold the front panel on....(just like another review here!!!!)
Summary: I wanted to upgrade a small office computer with a nicer case. I want small and quiet. This is not that case. My bad. This would be ideal for a cpu with integrated graphics Crossfired with a high end gaming video card. It is not the case for a small tower or desktop machine.
Pros: Lots of room to work. Ability to mount radiators. The front panel is very attractive Would make a great gaming machine
Cons: It's too long. Why have a mATX board in an 18" deep box? Too wide. I don't need all the cable management
Summary: I really wanted to give this case five stars but every time I look at the broken front cover I can't justify giving it five stars. There's plenty of room inside, it's an attractive case but those little things really nag.
Pros: Very attractive. Easy access to front fans. Plenty of room for micro-atx motherboards.
Cons: Front cover latches (push to unlatch/push to latch) are very cheaply made. On side will not now latch after only a week of use. Rear exhaust fan mounted directly to case rather than with vibration insulating rubber mounts.
