4 out of 5 eggsThree 300R builds later...

Pros: -Quality Construction and Finishing
-All Tool-less
-Attractive and sturdy feeling clear side panel
-Actually "mid" sized mid tower (some mid towers like the 500R are more like a full)
-Feels great to build in (hard to explain this one)

Cons: -Not a huge amount of room for cable management; the reverse side panel could benefit from a bulge-out but doesn't have one.

-Not all power supplies will fit the height of the bracket at the top, meant to hold the power supply in place. You may have to bend it. Of course none of the Corsair PSU's I have used in this case have given me that problem.

Other Thoughts: I've done 3 builds in this case now for other people and it's been a treat. I recommend it to everyone looking for a midsize, especially first timers. I consider a steal for 89.99. Don't count on that mail-in rebate though. I've never successfully gotten one from any company.

I must disclose I've never put a CPU under water in this case so I can't speak for it's cooling support.
I subtracted one egg because the reverse side is pretty snug if you've got a lot of extra cable length to tame.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat quality, great case

Pros: I considered buying a less expensive case but am glad I spent a little more for this Corsair. My build included two Titan cards, so I wanted a windowed case with side fan mounts for the graphic cards. The case is sturdy and spacious. It has an understated design, which I prefer over the typically overdone, gaudy gamer cases. I added 5 fans two the two included, and my dual Titan cards are well ventilated and cool. Some reviewers have complained about tight cable management and lack of grommets. It did take me a little while to get my cables arranged, but the final layout looks nice and doesn't hinder the airflow. The lack of grommets doesn't bother me at all. Other pluses are the two front USB 3 ports and tool-free bays -both of which I feel are requirements for cases today.

Cons: Tool-free bays are great, but adding an SSD drive requires an SSD mounting bracket. I had an extra one on hand, so it didn't impact my build. Otherwise I might have knocked off an egg.

Other Thoughts: This case had everything I was looking for. Well worth the price.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good case

Pros: Got this from my local pc shop for 70$ because I didn't want to risk anything breaking in shipping. There's plenty of room for most parts you would put in here, fits a hyper cooler 212 but don't expect to mount any fans against the window with that heat sink. Filtered front and bottom intakes are nice and the front bays are easy to install stuff in. The cable management is pretty good, but it gets tight if you have lots of wires running behind there.

Cons: The hard drive bays feel flimsy and I thought I was going to have to break them just to get my 1tb wd drive in. Hard drive activity led on the front is dead or missing, but my motherboard (msi z97 gaming 7) has one so that doesn't really matter. No rubber grommets for hiding wires and there are awkward open spaces that show wires. The audio wire was just long enough to get to the motherboard, but it is pulled taught.

Other Thoughts: Overall, it is a good case for the money you pay. There are some cons but most of them are minor or just don't matter much to me, but hey 70 dollars for a windowed corsair case is pretty good.

1 out of 5 eggsDrive Bays Suck

Pros: Haven't gotten past the first issue to find a pro.

Cons: Drive bays are impossible to get out. Put in 4 WD Red drives for my server and they were difficult to get in. Should have known I'd have to break the bays to get them out. Stop trying to be fancy and give me normal drive bays unless your going to make a good system. WD is a common drive too...

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect case for mid tower range!

Pros: I have had this case for over 2 years and i love it. Best investment in a case i have ever made. If your on a budget get this case, because when you start to add more to your pc this case will allow you do to so. Great case!

Cons: The only con is stock fans are alright, not the best but alright.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: this case is awesome has plenty of room for big video cards and supports alot of fans 120 mm or 140 mm dual on top and front and side panel 1 120 mm on rear

only gave it 4 stars due to 1 issue i had

Cons: only thing i can think of is i had one issue when installing my motherboard the msi 970 gaming the tower already had its riser screws in place for the motherboard to sit on and to be attached to via screws (!!! however i noticed a flaw with this case on the second row of risers screws the motherboard sits on specifically the second one from the left side the whole is slightly raised a bit due to the indent in case and when i installed my motherboard i noticed it made the board slightly bend in the middle this is not good motherboards are to suppose to sit flat on them so i took board out removed the riser screw and re installed motherboard where hole was i used standard screw that came with case and put it in just tight enough where it would not pull middle of board down and it worked so please anyone who gets this case please be careful installing your motherboard's !!! )

1 out of 5 eggsNot satisfied.

Pros: OK price.
Looks good.
Filters are nice.

Cons: Can not fit thick case fans in this case. Front panel will not allow it, side is too tight unless you have a small graphics card. top is too close to motherboard.

Can only mount certain types of fans with certain screws, do not get any 120 or 140 mm fan thinking it will fit, it most likely will not.

Front panel jacks broke within 2 weeks.

Side panels fit awkwardly on.

Toolless drive bays are not secure, movemnet.

Not recommended.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Construction, Great Looks

Pros: Solid steel Construction. Well Ventilated. Nice Window size. The steel mesh removable filter is nice for the PSU. Room for lots of fans

Cons: No grommets for sleeves. Cable management is restrained due right side door being flat.

Other Thoughts: Overall its a great case which looks and feels solid and not cheap.
