4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy to work with. Very open design and is ideal for those who may want to expand anything in the future.

Cons: Case was dented when it arrived.

Other Thoughts: I will probably purchase this same case in the future for new builds.

4 out of 5 eggsLoved the Case, but.....

Pros: -Style
-Airflow, Fan placement
-Cable Management

I loved the look of the case. Once I opened it up I also loved the cable management, was able to build and get 80% of the cables out of the way for nice airflow. And the placement of the built in fans (2 intake on the front and use the back for exhaust, maybe add another exhaust on top) was great.

Cons: -"Built in" motherboard standoffs

Unfortunately, it seems these built in standoffs may have been the reason I had to return this case. The three top standoffs are built into the case. They are basically large dimples with holes in them for the standoff screws. I have seen other cases with them but this was the first one I have tried. When I finished the build, my motherboard was not grounded properly and would not POST when inside the case (Gigabyte GA-990FX-GAMING). When built outside the case it booted fine. I troubleshot my build piece by piece outside the case and there were no issues. I ended up purchasing a new case and the build worked perfectly in the new case (the new case had no built in standoffs, used standard standoffs). I cannot confirm the built in standoffs were the cause, but this was the first case I have tried that had built in standoffs and it is also the only one that didn't boot for me.

The reason I rated 4 eggs still is because I loved the case and I seem to be the only one (based on the other reviews) to experience this, so it may have just been my luck on the one i received.

4 out of 5 eggsI'm glad I bought this tower

Pros: - Lots of fan spaces for optimal airflow. 120mm or 140mm supported.
- Has a two-wide fan space at the top perfect for a water-cooling radiator.
- The front fans that come with this tower light up with white LED's (if you are into that sort of thing).

Cons: - The front panel connectors are placed at the top of the tower, so If I have anything connected to them the wires hang down over the CD drive, which is slightly annoying.

Other Thoughts: I read somewhere that side fans sometimes cause additional noise and could disrupt the airflow. At one point I had all of the fan spaces filled (rear: water-cooling radiator fan blowing inward, top: two Corsair AF120 fans blowing upward, front: two Corsair AF120 fans blowing inward, side: two Corsair AF120 fans blowing inward). With this setup, the side fans didn't seem to be pushing any air, most likely because of the pressure inside the tower. I removed those fans and now when I put my hand against the empty side fan spaces, I can feel a very slight inward pull which makes me think that the air pressure is optimal without the side fans.

5 out of 5 eggsI like it!

Pros: Decent price for the features: plenty of place for ATX motherboard and other components, 6 3.5"/2.5" racks, 4 5" racks, well ventilated, easy to install/withdraw disks (no screw needed), easy to clean, to open and to access inside PC components, aesthetic look

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I could not connect directly power of my DVD writer because PSU cable appeared to be a bit short. I used Molex-SATA extender-adapter.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice Case

Pros: Plenty of space for a mid tower
Cable management made easy and cleaner with rubber covering around access holes.
Studs for the motherboard already installed.
Switch to turn off or on the LEDs in the front two fans.
Carrying handle.
USB 3.0 on front.
Sides bump out for cables to lay on backside.
Bottom dust filter.

Cons: The rubber washers or boots that were placed where 120mm fans mount tear very easily and also can shove through the case if you're not careful when tightening a fan screw. More annoying than anything, but it doesn't deserve to lose an egg over that.

Other Thoughts: I just changed out 5 mid cases in our small office with these and it was a very pleasant experience. Plenty of access points for cable management and the rubber boots around them made for a much cleaner look even without a viewing panel on the side. Plus, the sides bump out slightly to make it much easier of a time putting the side on with all those cables bumping out. The included small zip ties and stickable mounting clips were also a nice touch! I loved the ability to put 5 more fans into this case and it breathes so well for a mid tower it ought to be a crime. The carrying handle near the front makes moving these guys around so much easier. Its just one well built case for any need.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Received this case as part of a bundle back in 2012, and it is still holding up solid to this day. The carrying handle has worked fine for me (I've moved residences several times since then) in all situations.
The HDD trays look rather flimsy, but when you have an HDD in there, they are actually quite solid, and there's room for more of them than most folks would ever need.
Back area for cable management is a very nice addition.

Cons: Front LED is insanely bright, so I put a small piece of duct tape over it. Not the end of the world, and certainly not enough to bump off an egg, but I needed to put something here. :P

Other Thoughts: I have since upgraded to the Thermaltake Level 10 GT, which is a beatiful case. If I didn't have such poor money management skills, I'd still be using this case for a long time to come.

Also, I ran a basic air-cooled set-up, so I can't comment on fan mounts or liquid cooling capabilities, but it looks big enough I suppose.

4 out of 5 eggsAs Advertised

Pros: Lots of space, drive bays plentiful & easy to access/install. Cable routing keeps things clean. Lots of room for fans. On/Off switch for fan LEDs a cute bonus. Good case overall.

Cons: The radiator assembly fit fine, but my motherboard has a power plug near the top which made the radiator install for CPU liquid cooler very tight. Drive bay inserts a little flimsy, but as long as the Case isn't used on a bumpy road, should be fine.

Other Thoughts: Definite upgrade from my old case - better cooling and much quieter. Case is rather big with the wide points in side panels, but no other way to manage the cables as easily.

3 out of 5 eggsGood luck trying to use the fan mounts

Pros: Plenty of space, plenty of airflow. It's mostly solidly built, though the hard drive holders are pretty flimsy.

Cons: Basically no documentation, not even on Corsair's web site. In order to power on the front two fans, you have to plug in a molex power connector that is connected to the front panel. That one molex connector powers exactly two out of the three case fans, and without being near or even obviously connected to either.

That's a strange thing to do, but perhaps justified for cable management reasons. But if you do something strange, you have to document it. And my real complaint here is the lack of documentation. I understand not wanting to print off and include a 20 page booklet in every box, but is it really so hard to put a .pdf on your web site?

The bigger problem is the fan mounts, where the holes for the screws are enormous--big enough to drop a pen or pencil through a screw hole and into the case. That would be fine if Corsair included screws with large heads that fit the holes, but they didn't. I got a Radeon R9 Fury X and needed to mount the radiator somewhere, but the screws that came with the video card had heads small enough to fall right through the screw holes on the case.

I was able to mount the radiator using some thumbscrews that I had left over from my previous build using an Antec case. But there's no excuse for a case to have fan mounts that require unusual screws without providing said screws. One of the reasons you pay $100 for a case is so that you don't have to fuss with the company cutting corners to save a dime here and a nickel there.

Other Thoughts: Corsair seems to have a nice reputation on cases. This was my first Corsair case and will probably be my last. The fan mounts problem is ridiculous; I haven't had any such issues with Antec or Cooler Master in the past.

3 out of 5 eggsBright LED and Firewire? Nice layout

Pros: Great Layout
easy cable management
dual front intake fans

Cons: Super bright front power and activity LED! Can't leave the computer on at night in the room because it lights up the whole room. Can't put it to sleep because it blinks all night.
Why is there still a firewire port on the front of the case? The board that NEWEGG bundled with the case does NOT have a firewire header on it!!!! I would have rather seen an SD card reader or something more modern.

Other Thoughts: I'm currently trying to find a why to either darken the LED's or I might have to just disconnect them entirely. It's REALLY annoying. I'm not even sure what to do about the unconnectable and useless firewire port on the front of the case.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost perfect

Pros: Great quality and finish.
No sharp edges. Good cable management options - which you will need.

Cons: Larger than what I expected.
Cable management for hard drives was a bit daunting.

Other Thoughts: The SSD/HDD trays are a bid counter-intuitive and you will end up running the SATA power and data cables in ways that you would not have imagined.
Whoever designed the SATA power connectors should be lynched (separate issue I know).
Unfortunately, Corsair leaves you to your puzzle solution skills in order to figure out how to mount SSD drives (yes, it CAN be done without adapters...) and how you should/could run the SATA cables and power. Luckily, the case has bulged sides which work to your advantage.
Tall case. My PSU's ATX power cable is rather short but it could make it to the top of the motherboard. Not 'tight' but just barely.
Plenty of room to fit the Asus GTX 980Ti STRIX video card...or two or three...or whatever your build might need.
I give this case 4 eggs because of the funkiness. Its a good case overall.
