1 out of 5 eggsHuge Disappointment

Pros: HDD and power LED lights are a nice white instead of annoying blue.

Cons: Steel case material is paper thin and super flimsy. Side panels warp easily. Not a whole lot of room behind the board for cable routing. Fan filters are a cheap perforated sheet of plastic stuck on with magnetic tape. They restrict air flow more than filter air. A fiber weave type filter would work much better. The front door is attached with tiny metal clamps on both sides and requires too much force to open. You have to pull so hard that both sides end up coming off. It would have been better to use a magnetic closure. Two of the fans had pins not seated in the connector properly, but that's ok, they're just cheap sleeve bearing fans and you'll throw them away anyhow. You have to unscrew the two front bottom feet in order to completely unsnap the front bezel. Poor quality and construction. Too much cutting corners and it shows. I'd return it, but I already threw away the box. It's going into the recycling bin and out with the trash.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: Love the slick look and available slots for expansion. Built mine as a home computer (not a gaming rig), but it is blazing fast for home use. I have i5 with 2 ssds and a TB hdd, gigabyte mb, 16gb memory and 750w psu. No additional cooling used. Running windows 7 pro. Runs really quiet.

Cons: Not really a con, but if you go up from a slim to this tower, you will think you are putting up a fridge!

5 out of 5 eggsClean, Quiet and Ominous

Pros: This case is all about doing things right. It's clean, quiet and well put together. The cable routing is awesome and keeps things really clean inside

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: Make sure you check your available space for this case as it's a little on the big size. Not a bad this and it makes working inside it a dream.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome build quality

Pros: - very good build quality
- allows minor customization (ie. hdd tray can be removed to allow for greater airflow)
- push button panel release (definitely a game changer)
- push button vent covers (removed during game play for great cooling)
- beyond quiet
- awesome customer service - IO panel broke on install and corsair shipped new io panel.

Cons: - the plastic hinge that holds front door looks a little weak (but comes with replacements hinges and easy to replace)
- the screw slots for power supply oddly didn't align with HX750 PSU, only got 3 screws holding PSU (which is fine)

5 out of 5 eggsClassy Case

Pros: Solid construction, Classy, professional looks, nicely finished. Dead quiet with large, quiet case fans, sound deadening material. Lots of room inside, even for tall CPU coolers like Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO. Nice thumbscrews everywhere. Great cable management features.

Cons: limited documentation, large size

Other Thoughts: Great case to work with, no sharp edges, nicely finished, lots of room.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Noise reduction works, and the case is visually appealing.

Cons: The top air duct is difficult to push open. A lot of pressure is needed to get the lid off.

3 out of 5 eggsSpeakers

Pros: On the whole, this seems to be an easy case to work with, but I'm still having trouble with the build.

Cons: This case doesn't seem to have a speaker, and I have no idea how to get one that would fit. How does one hear the ping to indicate that the motherboard is posting? My motherboard doesn't have any lights that would serve this purpose.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Case!

Pros: Cable management, easy. All black with white LED power button. That's basically all you see, while it might be a con that it has no window, it makes up with the fact that it's quiet. Really quiet. All of the harddrives are on rubber stoppers. The fans are on rubber stoppers also. There is sound dampening foam or some sort of material on the side panels and the front.

Cons: A 90 degree sata cable makes it alittle tight when trying to wire your harddrives.

3 out of 5 eggsCase is great, Rebate, not so much

Pros: Case is great. It is whisper quite from a few feet away. Plenty of space for drives, cables and fans. This case looks great as well. I like that the optical drives are behind a door. (Some may see that as a con but it can be removed.)

Cons: Don't bother with the rebate... They will receive your rebate from and mysteriously tthe UPC and receipt will have vanished? The case deserves 4.5-5 eggs, but the whole rebate fiasco has me slightly bitter.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this case

Pros: I love the simple look of this case, but even more than that I love the padding that helps reduce the vibration noise from my single 1.5TB drive and my liquid cooler. I'm also impressed with the removable parts on the top and side so I could add additional fans or just leave them open for airflow.

Cons: I wish the filter on the front fans was removable so I can clean it easier.

Other Thoughts: This case has been a pleasure to work with.
