Most Functional Micro ATX Case Available

MICHAEL B., Newegg
24 February 2015
  • Summary: When I chose this case it was because of its form factor. There was a limited amount of space where I currently lived where I could put a new PC and this was one of the biggest ones I could fit on top of the stand without having the whole case hang over the side.
  • Pros: - Very large CPU cutout for best compatibility with a wide variety of CPU coolers. - 5 PCI slots in a Micro ATX form factor - Very elegant aesthetic (when 5.25 drive bays aren't being used. - PSU fan filter. - Room for any graphics card to fit inside case. - Lots of cable management room, and rea...
  • Cons: - I know most people don't use their 5.25 inch drive bays like I do, but for people like me who still do this case looks ugly when they are mounted. - If you mount a dual radiator to the top, you may run into issues using the top 5.25 inch drive. - HD audio cable barley reached the audio input on...

350D

Daniel N., Newegg
23 January 2015
  • Summary: There was to be a different way to ship the case with the panel on front. Maybe use the foam to separate the panel from case for delivery.
  • Pros: The case is amazing itself.
  • Cons: When I got the case and I opened it. The front panel was lose. One plastic tooth was broken and the clip was half broken.

Excellent case for the money

James B., Newegg
11 January 2015
  • Summary: Not sure if the clips being broken were due to shipping or just flimsy construction. I am very satisfied overall and would go with this case again for any future builds.
  • Pros: Lots of room to work with. Cable management is a breeze. Dust filters easy to remove and clean. Stock fans silent and move plenty of air. Overall very satisfied with the case - see cons.
  • Cons: The only reason why I docked one egg is because the clips that hold the front panel in place were broken. Not a super big deal as the panel still stayed in place while in normal upright position. Just a minor gripe, but I would def. go with this case again.

Corsair 350d case

Lyle R., Newegg
28 December 2014
  • Summary: Overall for the $99.00 that i spent on the case it is probably worth it; especially if you don't plan on putting anything in the drive bays. I just can't get past the fact that they do no sell brushed face-shields and Corsair is just happy with the ugly unfinished reveal that is left on both sides...
  • Pros: Plenty of room to work with. Good cable management. Looks good as a stock unit before drives are added. Plenty of dust filters, though it would be nice to have one on the top of the unit. Still a good price even though Corsair "dropped the ball in many areas"
  • Cons: There are a lot of issues with this case. It seems like their design team was going somewhere good with the 350d, but somewhere along the line really dropped the ball. Overall everything about the case says "I'm a cheap case" with lots of injection molding. The biggest thing that I really really ...

One of the best micro-ATX case on the market. Few caveats, but overall very good.

Shadow Reader, Amazon
29 August 2014
  • Summary: This is my second Corsair case. It's probably best-in-class for the microATX form factor. Packaging was adequate and my unit arrived quickly with no defects (thanks Amazon!) I've heard horror stories that some customers found their case with scratches covered up by black magic markers / Sharpie ink...

Got to think carefully

pedro g., Newegg
18 August 2014
  • Summary: Limited Amd mtx boards so choose wisely because port arrangements matter when it comes to max ever drive you want to install. Would like to see better materials. ( metal or aluminum please, glass ) Modular bay should have been incorporated better..
  • Pros: 1)Nice compact for those heading to downsize 2)Will fit 2 graphics cards long graphics card 3) good cable managment 4) great design in overall
  • Cons: 1)Thermal take water 2.0 will fit so 240 mm is pushing but a tight squeeze and you will lose one bay as a result unless you store and ssd or something smaller. 2) Only the SSD is modular (this sucks) because if you run a single graphics card your are left space that could have been better utilize...

Nice Case

Mark M, Amazon
20 June 2014
  • Summary: Pros: Seems to be built well, although the top is a bit flimsy. Naturally the H100 and H110 both fit (in the top, and not at the same time). Well thought out cable management. Cons: HDD light on front of case is annoying so I unhooked it.

User Review

Christopher S., Newegg
18 June 2014
  • Pros: It's a very nice case that made it easy to build my PC without too much trouble, especially for cable management.
  • Cons: The front cover that covers the front USB/audio inputs and the power button has flimsy latches to lock it into place, so one of them broke off when I put the DVD drive into my PC. I didn't notice this right away, so I thought I had messed up the build when the power button didn't work. It was jus...

Overall Good but has a few issues

Ethan B., Newegg
16 June 2014
  • Summary: The front dust filter is pretty much useless if you ask me. It isn't capable of filtering the finer dust particles out of the air only the bigger pieces. I attached some silverstone dust filters onto my 2 140mm front intake fans to try and solve this problem but I was forced to ditch this effort...
  • Pros: It is a overall well built little case. Good airflow and a sleek and high class look to it. Very easy to put the side panels on and off. This might seem trivial but coming from a Fractal Design Define R4 it was much needed improvement. Plenty of cable management as long as you do not use to many ...
  • Cons: I had extreme difficulties mounting 2 140mm Aerocool Shark's in the front. It was a bit ridiculous. The motherboard panel was a bit flimsy same with the rear of the case. It came bent out of shape to the point where the rear I/O shield would not pop into place. I had to beat and bend it until it ...
