5 out of 5 eggsNice design

Pros: Great price, nice design, black and well constructed!

Cons: None- other than it was larger than I expected, but that's not really a con...

Other Thoughts: First time using a case from Corsair, but I am a fan of their memory products. Nice to know they make cases too. I am impressed with the design and construction. I would recommend it to others.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat value

Pros: 1) the case is well built, steel, so it doesn't rattle and can take a slight beating.
2) has noise dampeners and steel seems to absorb sound better than my aluminum cases.
3) usb3 ports on top front, easy to get to.
4) magnetic fan filters on front and bottom (for psu) the front one is very easy to clean.
5) rubber feet, stays planted
6) the front door can be made to open the other way. there are tiny clips on it, just take them off and put them on the other side
7) cable routing is very easy but wish there were more places to tie down my cables, but again would probably increase cost.

Cons: 1) only comes with 1 front case fan.
2) installing a 2nd front case fan requires you take off the front face requiring 6 screws to be removed. though the case does come with the required LONG fan screws, don't lose them if you plan on installing more fans.
3) the psu fan filter is rather flimsy and when it is in the correct place, you always wonder if it is on right. maybe create a slot for it just like the front fan filter, but that would add to cost...
4) the HDD clips require you to put the HDDs in a certain orientation, with the sata plugs pointed in the direction of insertion. This means you have to take the back panel off also to wire up your drives. not a big issue if that's how you want to run your cables.
4) 1 front intake fan (in the middle) doesn't provide enough air flow for GPU AND CPU. should probably just orient the mb lower, and put the PSU on top then there would be a better flow of colder air to the cpu. therefore the cpu and gpu both run hot.
-) I hate doors, but it blocks some of the fan noises, rather have a fake front panel or maybe the back panel that encloses the front and the side.

Other Thoughts: for the price the 330R is a good buy if you only want to run a system with 1 vid card, 1 HDD and a slightly overclock cpu. it is not a bad choice.
I don't use internal Rom-disk drives anymore. I just use a external slim drive when i need and put it away. That way I don't need one for every system that i build so the 5.25" bays have become useless for me. Or I use USB thumb drives for installations. I don't remember the last time i listened to a CD from a CD player, usually just stream or use my phone.

Door should be mounted on the other side by default. eg: Obsidian 550D

Though the trend is to put the power supply at the bottom for more stability, making a completed build bottom heavy, there is less air flow for the cpu hsf and gpu. Since there is only 1 fan, it is not oriented high enough in the case to provide good air flow for the cpu. but at the same time, it isn't low enough to provide good air flow for gpus near the bottom. maybe inverted is the answer? well not my job to decide that.

I'm using this as a file server case, modified it to hold 13 3.5" HDDs would hold 4-6 more but that's all i need atm. cpu isn't OC'd and fan filters work great
overall a great balance of cost vs utility.
This was my first Corsair case, and wanted to see how they do the lower end. If they can balance cost and utility at the bottom end, I would imagine they do a great job at the higher end. Knowing what i do know, I would have rather bought the Corsair Obsidian 550D. A more expensive case, but i'm sure it's the better buy.

Final thoughts: I can't wait for my next build to try out a high end Corsair case.

4 out of 5 eggsI'm Happy With It

Pros: Nice looking and practical minimalist design, very easy to build in, quiet but not silent (just what the product name promises). Can't hear the computer in a room with normal background noise. Runs cool with stock fans.

Cons: When the HD is working hard the actuator noise booms through the entire case like a drum – the case vibrates and transmits the vibrations to the floor it is sitting on. Not a big deal for me because my system drive is an SSD. In my opinion, this case is not fully engineered for silence although the large front fan and shield are effective. The design of the drive cage is unimpressive.

Other Thoughts: I chose this mid-range case for two reasons: its minimalist design and its touted quietness. I would have happily paid for a premium silent case, but the premium cases are all aimed at gamers who seem to prefer gaudy designs. Despite my long-winded 'con' this is a very good case for the price, therefore 4 eggs.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little case

Pros: Good looking case, VERY silent, easy to assemble. Good front ports.
One of the front door hinges was not molded correctly, and would not seat securely Corsair replaced the entire front door assembly!

Cons: One of the front door hinges was not molded correctly, and would not seat. Corsair replaced the entire front door assembly. Too narrow side space behind MB to route cables; wider would have been better.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent case but...

Pros: It's pretty easy to use design, it's a nice compact light case, good air flow (with all the noise dampening) and you can mount a AIO cooling unit

Sound wise, it depends on the fans you use, the ones that come with them seem decently quiet

I'm digging the looks, and putting components is relatively easy.

It wasn't too bad weight wise fully loaded.

I personally didn't have any issues with the dust covers, pretty easy to remove and clean

Cons: The front panel cables are too short, Corsair, seriously, just make them extra long, I couldn't make my cables as neat as i wanted to, sure the case doesn't have a window but come on!

You can not mount a h100i in push pull config depending on the motherboard, you won't have clearance. In my case, the heat shroud or armor or whatever on the z87 sabertooth got in the way. tho perhaps without armor it's possible but it would cover your top cable plug ins.

I personally wouldn't use the top cover as the whole thing has noise dampening it would trap heat more so than the 300R

Other Thoughts: It's a nice looking, clean, minimalistic case that reminds me of the antec p180 that i really wanted a few years back but never did. It looks more modern and elegant than the 300R but I prefer the 300R over this case.

corsair seriously should give longer cables in their nonwindowed (and windowed) cases for their front panel stuff

Final thought, it's a nice compact case for an ATX build, if you do decide to go AIO cooling, consider the clearance depending on the motherboard if you decide to go push pull (and don't use the top cover lol)

4 out of 5 eggsBeautiful case

Pros: Very clean mature look. Love the sound dampening, coming from an old 7 year old clunker computer, this computer is so quiet. Very nicely designed, very thought out design of fan placement, and vents. Love the dust filters so the inside doesn't look like the titanic after a few weeks. Fits large video cards no problem.

Cons: Fans that come with the case aren't the quietest. Would have liked to see the fans that Corsair sells at retail in this case with the color rings on them. Took off one egg for fans that aren't as quiet as their retail fans.

Other Thoughts: Great case for a medium build.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case, worth the buy

Pros: I like this case enough that I bought it a second time when I built a PC for a friend. I would say it's one of my favorite cases thus far. I replaced my previous case with this one when I built my new PC because this case is much lighter but still strong, the internal layout is great for cable management, it has better air filters, better fan layout, and it has sound dampening material on the inside panels.

With a couple of exceptions that I'll touch on later, it was very easy to build a PC with this

Benefits:
Lightweight
Good noise reduction
Plenty of space for fans and coolers
Good space behind motherboard for cable routing
Dust screens / air filters for PSU and all intake fans
Front door can be configured to open from left or right
Looks great for both enthusiasts and business

Cons: This is a great case, but there is a small problem that needs modification. I'm writing this review so people aren't turned off from buying the case, because it is otherwise one of the best cases I've used. This problem is quite fixable.

The power button is sticky and needed modification on both cases I used. This could be a potential problem for some people.

Basically, the problem is that there is a floating switch on the case front panel that sits in front of the actual power button. The actual power button is a little tiny button behind the front panel that gets pushed by the floating switch. Unfortunately, the part on the back of the floating switch that actually pushes against the tiny power button is a skinny t-shaped protrusion that can get wedged against the button and get stuck.

The effect of this glitch is that your computer might act like the power button is getting held down and, for example, continuously boot and reboot.

To fix this, what I did was sand down the protrusion on the back of the floating switch by just a little bit and then I glued a small flat plastic piece to the back of the protrusion so there would be a large surface area to actually press against the power button.

Lastly,
It's a small annoyance, but the drive sleds are really only good for 3.5 inch drives - you still have to screw in your SSDs.

Other Thoughts: I really like this case case despite the problem. The glitch is enough of a problem that if I'm being honest, I have to knock it down to 4 stars, though.

I'd also recommend getting an extra 140mm fan for the front.

If anyone from Corsair reads this, if you release a second version of this case, include space for 2.5" drives and fix the power button issue.
