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

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 - perhaps from Corsair refurbishing units??.
Summary: My only gripe is that I was expecting it to be a little smaller(my own fault for not looking closely at the dimensions) Size was it's about as tall as a standard atx case(I may try and remove the rubber feet, as they are tall. But overall the case is very very sturdy! lots of nice features, great airflow, SLI capable(no wonder it's so large?), Accepts large 240mm Radiators up top!, Easily cleanable fan filters.
Summary: I have this case now over a week. Nice and small with everything you could ever need. The only thing now is I wish I knew about Mini Atx earlier. My build is solid compact and fast. Before this case I had the same mentality bigger is better. Now that I have a more of a compact case I feel more relaxed about moving from place to place. My build i7 4770k, GA-Z77M-D3H-MVP (rev.
Summary: Great case. Only bad thing is that the rubber grommets fell of the holes. Kinda disappointed about that. Fans seem to be fine, no problems. The case scratches, but you won't be able to see it unless you look at it at a certain angle. No other complaints apart from those two. Good job, Corsair!
Summary: This case is just awesome, it looks simple and clean, and meets most of the expectations. I've been using this case for my new gaming system build for about a month and it has done me well. Positives(+) * Nice large square window(I love how uniform and open the window is, and I think cases that have that weird rectangular window looks horrible.) * Brushed design of the exterior looks nice. * Good dust filters! * Easy to move around and clean out.
Summary: coming from cooler master ATCS 840, corsair 350D was easy and very enjoyable to build a pc in. The only real con is the cable management cut-out for the SATA, extremely close to the SATA port on the Asus motherboard (m-atx). The SATA cable has to make a very tight bend in-order to fit through cable management cut-outs.
Pros: -simple and clean design, -white led for power, and harddrive activity., -side panel window is tinted., -side panels very easy to install and remove., -cable management was fairly easy, -after fitting custom loop, the inside of the case is a bit cramped, but still looks tidy., -very light (weight)
Cons: -(if you really care about symmetry) power button has 2 led, one for for power and other for harddrive activity led. The latter is usually off (unless hard drive doing something)., - for m-atx motherboards (asus gene VI),found SATA cables need to make really tight bend to fit through cable management cut-outs to connect with motherboard SATA ports., -must install a thin rad (on the top) with push or pull configuration for the fans., -could have included more than 4 zi...
Summary: This product looks insanely good unless you put an optical drive in there, the drive sits back a little bit too much. The inside of the case has just one minor fault, the fan spacing is perfect the problem is for the front 140mm intake fans you can really only use corsair fans because they aren't as deep.
Summary: I just received this case today and my first reaction was that it was too small but once I looked at it from different angles I realized that it was actually very well designed case and Corsair did a really nice job making the inside of the case with lots of openings for cable management and rubber grommets. I bought this case for a build that I am doing and I will be using it with my brand new EVGA GTX 770.
Summary: Very good overall case - don't try to bend the air filters, they will snap. I had trouble installing CM 240m AIO cooler and had to trim the rubber grommets on the top of the case, otherwise very good build quality
