3 out of 5 eggsIn this case, no more corsair for me!

Pros: With 20 dollar rebate, this was 29.99. Its a really nice case, sturdy, and the fans are quiet. I wish it had more HD banks, and I dont like the HD connectors being on the reverse side of the case, making you have to take both sides of the case off to service them. I want to disable the fan lights, I see no need for them.

Cons: Being a HUGE corsair fan, and I have spent a lot of money with them. This case is nice, and the fans are quiet. This product was supposed to give a 20 dollar rebate, but they only sent me 10. I sent them an email and called, and they blew me off. Now, 10 bucks isnt a lot of money, but stealing 10 bucks from me makes me mad, and its just the principle of it. This is exactly why I hate rebates. They bank on the people that dont send them in. In this case, my dealings with Corsair, are done.

Other Thoughts: New Egg is a Stand Up Company. They immediately gave me a 10 gift card. I have to say, once again, I love NEW EGG!! I only wish they would start looking at these vendors, and making them accountable for lying and stealing.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Silent, fast fans, enough space to fit in two large dual slot GPUS.

Cons: Screws to remove the case covers are a little picky about wanting to come out. Could use more space to fit in CPU coolers as the CM Hyper 212 EVO wont fit (A real shame) in without some modifications to either the case or cooler(Which I would not recommend).

Other Thoughts: The extra space on the back for placing cords is an awesome feature and really helps remove the clutter. After I got this case I also noticed a lower cpu idle temperature.

Also, Corsair should include 1/16" nuts for the long fan screws and 3/32" nuts for the short fan screws as these are almost impossible to find at a hardware store AND on the internet. PLEASE fix this.

5 out of 5 eggsGood For The Price!

Pros: -Comes with 2 140 mm led fans and one 120 mm fan.
-Corsair Quality
-Nice Looks
-Okay Cable Routing
-Lots of features
-Toolless SSD and HDD mounts.
-2 Front USB 3.0 Headers
-Smaller than most MID tower ATX cases.
-Windowed side panel.
-Light
-Has Dust Filters
-Bottom mounted power supply
-Thumb Screws everywhere.
-Reusable PCI expansion covers
-Nice Ventilation
-Water Cooling Grommets at the back.

Cons: -Very Hard to use CPU cable hole, I had to remove the motherboard AND the top of the case to access the CPU cable hole on the top right of the motherboard.
-You cant install a rad at the top cuz there is no space.
-No cable management holes at rear bottom of the case near power supply.
-There is a big bulge that helps with cable routing, but it doesn't help in the corners of the case where it can get really hard. Expect having to spend time getting cable management done.
-Windowed side panel isn't perfectly centered with the motherboard.
-Poor dust filtering on the front part of the case.

Other Thoughts: While there are many problems with this case, I would still recommend it if its on sale because of the extra features you don't normally get with a case this cheap.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect budget case

Pros: The case is a perfect budget case for computer enthusiast. My build includes Asrock z97x, i4670k, h100i cpu cooler, corsair cx750m psu, and R9 280x. Solid case with cable management potential. I love the open windows to show off your build. There is a opening underneath the motherboard, Thus changing the CPU cooler is a breeze.

Cons: The starter fans that comes with the case are mediocre, If you wanted to get good ventilation, upgrading them would not be a bad idea. The case is only able to house one Saphire R9 280x Tri-x video card. I suppose I can fit another one after sacrificing the hard drives mounting bay and some modding. SLI and Crosfire can be done with smaller video cards though.

Other Thoughts: Maximum CPU cooler height is 157 mm This case is somewhat small to fit in CPU cooler such as CM 212 evo or plus. It is short by couple mm.
