5 out of 5 eggsI love this case

Pros: Accessibility, with latching side panels; front panel USB ports; ease of installation of parts and connectors. SATA dock on top of the case, for temporarily connecting a bare HDD or SSD outside the case. Handsome.

Cons: Mid-tower turns out to be a wee short for my ASUS X99-Deluxe motherboard. Was unable to use brackets 1 & 8 of the case, so for that MoBo there are only 6 slots available. The double cable for front USB 3.0 connectors makes for a lot of thick cable. Fortunately, the availability of adapters, making it possible to connect the USB 3.0 front ports to the header on the MoBo, takes care of some complaints on that front. But that still leaves the problem of too much cable, and thick cable at that. Fortunately, the cable management of the case made it possible to solve that problem also.

Other Thoughts: I've just seen that this case is being discontinued. I hope they come out with another one just like it, with minor improvements. Best case I've ever seen.

Edit 4/5/2016: I was finally able to mod the front panel issue, using a proper header setup I got by cannibalizing a 350D front panel. (This mod is described on the Corsair forums.) I had been having lots of trouble with the front panel in any case, and after I did the mod, I found out why. When I tested the OEM cables, they turned out to be faulty. One or two wires open or NG on both cables. Still love the case, though.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic, easy to use and well thought out.

Pros: This tower was really well thought out in its architecture and the assembly and parts are quality. I wish I had known about this tower when I did my first build.

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case and Overall Space

Pros: Plenty of Air Vents / Easy Access to Inside / Cable Management / 6 USB 3.0 ports.

Cons: Corsair 200mm fans that come with case died after 2 years of use.

Other Thoughts: This case has been terrific for me. Plenty of space and I mean plenty. For something considered a "mid-tower" case, this thing is pretty much a Full Tower. Cable Management area could be more generous with space but I have a Corsair TX750 PSU which has tons of cables. So trying to stuff them in the side case was a pain but I got the job done.

Highly recommend this case, as it's been available for a long time now and for good reason.

5 out of 5 eggsBest looking case is also very well engineered

Pros: There is everything here to manage a six drive, two video card rig .

Cons: Be careful with the plastic feet. They are surprisingly brittle and an essential part of the case. I broke them, but Corsair's RMA immediately mailed me a replacement part.

Other Thoughts: Would buy again. Corsair support was right on the money. I saw some reviews saying they had issues with Corsair support. They must have altered their approach because I had no problems in August/September 2015. Very efficient service.

5 out of 5 eggsMy fave case made on the market

Pros: IMO in the 4 years ive had the case so far
the true pros are still what i got it for.
-well thought out accommodations
^dust filteres
^rubber gromits
^no thumb screw panels
^window that isnt gaudy
^bottom mount psu with dust filter for intake.
^front hd dock

Its truly easy to build in this case. You can do a lot. Id still recommend a semi/modular psu Since the window is perfect for showing off the hardware even obstructs most hd vision.

I also really like the case because of the high clearance over the motherboard mounting zone...above there is a good amount of room for a 280 rad setup.

For its price when its on sale. You get a good case worth investing in that can pay off water cooling or not you have the option, as well as an hd dock.

Cons: After 2-3 years the 2 big fans died on me. when i replaced the front 200mm i had to remove the hd cages since the "cooler master" fan i got to replace it was thicker. I guess if you got to see some fans in person you could get a correct one.

I guess its a waiting game to see what/when the owner over exerts force to a specific part(most likely plastic) or imo part of the front panel connector. I didnt trust using the fan controller after that

Other Thoughts: Nice i got 2 140mm noctua fans on the top 1 120mm on the rear. And the NH-d14 on my cpu so its quiet for the moment vs a push pull sound.
I only have 2 wd black 1tb hd, and 1 240gb ssd. So im utilizing 1 hd cage in the lower area and in general it seems ideal for the airflow of the intake to go right into the cpu cooler.

I cant wait to possibly water cool one day when my sandy setup dies and i dont want to support the mobo/cpu socket.

Best case ive built 10+ builds for friends and family. Its the best "gaming" case due to its subtlety as well as its elegance. I did like a few itx cases. But for a full sized rig with the proper airflow/quality to sustain the build.

I5 2500k @4.4ghz
8gb mushkin redline
240gb kingston hyper x ssd
2x 1tb wd black
Radeon HD 7990

NZXT sentry fan controller just for my 4 case fans and it suports 6, if i ever push pull the top. which is ideal
Im just glad my hardware is keeping up with this seemingly timeless computer case

5 out of 5 eggsIf I was any more in love with this case I would marry it!

Pros: The list of pros is long as this is a very well thought out case.

*I like my cases to be understated and not scream for attention.

* I got this and the rest of my Cosair gear with the sails- which are a vastly superior logo to the new horrific you-know-what stamp.

I consider flat front faces to be superior over sloped- which hold more dust.

* For customization big cases like this are nearly a must.

*Some dislike the stiff power button. I think it lowers the odds of mishaps.

* This one has very well thought out cooling with well designed vent schemes and fans.

* The dust filters are a nice bonus. The fact that they are on half the openings is because those are INPUTs. On outputs they would just inhibit the airflow.

* They left enough space under the motherboard for further work from the opposite side.

* The removable doors- one with a window.

* Everything removes and returns easily.

* The hotswap bay is a nice feature.

* Good cases will have grommets(holes) for cable management. This one was very well thought out.

* It comes with plenty of expansion bays.

* There probably are more pros that I neglected to mention.

Cons: The only observed flaw is one of the expansion bay holders snapped and I had to glue it back together.

Other Thoughts: Somebody had their thinking cap on when they designed this one.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome, just awesome!

Pros: Awesome case. That is all.

Cons: Instructions could have been a bit clearer on what the various cables were. It took a few moments to figure out what the unmarked fan cables were.

Other Thoughts: Forget the fancy colors and spend the extra cash on this case. The fan filters are awesome. It's also very quiet. I also love that there is no hinged front panel door. My old case had a stupid front panel door that was always in the way. I'm so glad it's gone now.

5 out of 5 eggsBig and Spacious

Pros: Big. So big. Set up for water cooling. Cable management is a breeze in this case. Easy to access anything in this case. Smoothest build I have every done.

Cons: Big. Listed as Mid tower. It is every bit as big as my last full sized case. Knew this going in though.

Other Thoughts: Make sure your cables are long enough and then get this case.

5 out of 5 eggsJust Remember This is a Big Case

Pros: Well designed. Elegant. Edges are smoother than most. Has wire way behind/below the motherboard. The main case is as a result clear for good air flow. Replaced the rear fan with a Corsair H80i CPU cooler. Has filters in the front and below the power supply (have cats and terrible house keeping). The sides are latched rather than held in place with screws - easily opened and removed. Room for lots of drives.

Cons: It's big - most would not be affected. Expensive, for me worth it. Probably should include a USB 3.0 X 20 pin connector for appropriate motherboards. Probably should include a filter for the rear fan (the H80i recommends pulling air into the case).- might be useful aftermarket accessory.

Other Thoughts: I replaced a nice (big) Antec 900 case to get this system in - Asus Sabertooth 990Fx, Asus R9270 video card and Corsair RM750 modular power supply with 6 drives including 2 X SSD to fit . I built it in the old case and the cables simply took over the case, even considering the modular power supply. This one is much better but also bigger-the only way to open a can of worms is get a bigger can. The motherboard side looks terrific - good air flow looks like a pro put it together. The backside - not so much - not the case's fault. The nice modular power supply still has a lot of cable to deal with. The realities are that if you don't have a lot of drives so that there is space for the power supply cables, you don't need this case. If you've got a full boat set of drives - it's pretty hard to ignore. Yeah and it's pretty easy to get into and fool around with.
