4 out of 5 eggsStrong on looks, good features but expensive for a case that is no longer leading edge

Pros: Airy. Watercooler-friendly. Lightweight but sturdy. Roomy but not behemoth. Space for electrical cables behind the base tray - plenty of grommets for cable passthrough. Powerfully-magnetic dust filters. Good clearance from the floor. Inobtrusive reset button. 2 rear SSD (thin or thick drives) trays (I recommend a SAS power cable splitter/extender). Brushed aluminum front face with offset hexagonoid grid looks great.

Cons: Top-edge of price in the group of mainstream cases. No USB2 ports. Too few tiedown points on the rear panel (I dremelled two additional). Traditional sliding sidepanels - thumbscrews not integrated. No fanspeed controller. 3pin case fans. Front dustpanel access is slick, but disengages when my knees bump it.

Other Thoughts: I bought this rig for the look of (genuine) brushed aluminum face place and the cool grid airflow pattern. (I'm a sucker for a pretty faceplate). I have a twinge of buyer's remorse over the extra features of the Define S, but I am pleased with the classic edgy styling of the 450D and almost daily I delight in the new look: a huge improvement over my previous case. I added two cold cathode lights which light the case from inside. I peeled the aluminum faceplace off an ODD faceplate and stuck it to the (free bundled) DVD tray (which almost offsets the price). Though I was forced to drilling a smallish hole so provide access to the eject button. Check the 450D review on TechPowerUp. I wish both motherboard AND case manufacturers included a Q-Connector (and several mini velcros or a mesh wrapper to tame the vine-like jungle of front-panel cables).

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Quality for the Price

Pros: -Good cable mgmt
-Updated features (magnetic dust guards, hidden SSD, etc.)
-Great aesthetic design details
-VERY quiet fans

Cons: Disk drive media (DVD) is not hidden behind face plate. Ruins the image of the case - would have been nice to have a build-in suicide door to keep this masked.

Other Thoughts: Great case for the money. Very pleased with the features. Good construction; although thin it is not flimsy as others have mentioned. No sharp edges either. Been troubleshooting a MB issue for a week and have yet to get cut.

Many have commented on the thin plastic see-through pane. Although it is indeed thinner than my old Antec, it's still plenty solid and didn't scratch at all.

3 out of 5 eggsPoor filtering

Pros: - Easy to clean filters
- SSD holders
- Removable cages
- Cable management

This case was ideal for what I wanted to do. I have a micro atx board and only a single gpu I didn't need a crazy case and the 450D had everything I needed and room to expand in the future. The cable management is great but it would have been nice to see a little more room in the back panel for thicker cables. The SSD holders are amazing and give you the oppurtunity to remove all the HDD cages to improve airflow. The overall build quality was there but it lacked some basic quality control with the panels, they flex a lot which makes it difficult to get on by yourself.

Cons: - FILTERS
- Packaging

I've owned this case for about 5 months now, at first I loved all the filters it had, and thought I would never have to clean my case again but little did I know these filters suck! About a month into owning it I had to go back in to reset my CMOS and when I opened my case it was covered in dust! I checked all my filters and they were all there but barely had any dust in them, my room is a fairly dust free place, I don't allow my pets in here and it's usually just me in here but with the large intake fans this case manages to suck all the dust in my room into it. The filters are great but if they don't do their job they're pointless.

also, upon arrival I held the case in it's box and shook it to listen for damage while shipping. I heard a little rattle and some little plastic thing had broken. I gave the case a good looking over and nothing was missing even after building I still could not find where the clear little plastic piece went. Maybe it was accidentally dropped in there while packing it up, but none the less that shouldn't have happened.

Other Thoughts: I would say the price/performance is perfect, this case is amazing besides the lousy air filters.

4 out of 5 eggsSatisfied, IMMENSELY!!!

Pros: AIRFLOW... The installed fans are quiet as... Barely hear any noise from the system. Tool-less to a point. Looks sharp and shows off all the other stuff purchased from Newegg

Cons: Issues with hard drive trays. Holes in wrong place for SSD. HDD had to be installed facing to not interfere with the tray locks. Cable space behind motherboard is cramped

Other Thoughts: Other than the bays being a pain, the build was non-problematic.

4 out of 5 eggsProfessional Looking Design

Pros: Well designed case. Looks like it belongs in an office. Nice front finish with elegant brushed aluminum front panel. Enough room for two GPUs and four drives. Added Corsair hydro cooler H100i with no problems. Goes well with my gray, black, and white color scheme.

Cons: Front air filter tray clicks out at times when handling case. Side panels could use more support or thicker gauge of metal. Top filter (metal) mesh is rough to touch. Do not set anything that you do not want scratched. My require some filing on the sides to smooth out.

Other Thoughts: Overall, a professional design without Bling. Great for system cooling. Multiple locations for fans and hydro cooling.

4 out of 5 eggsI'll be the manual

Pros: Good quality & Good air flow not so good manual due to the fact that I broke the front door (grill) in the first 1 minute of having it. I told myself wish I had read the manual first NOT that would not have helped. First off the door/grill has two push in unlocks push in again it re-locks at the top of the door just below the 2nd 5.25" bay one @ each side then it will open like a drawbridge. DON'T try to open it like a pedestrian door like I did you will break the bottom tap that it hinges on. Second if you are going to add DVD/BR drive into the 5.25" bays like 99% of builders do you will have to remove the front bezel you'll see the clips from the inside the case. Before you try to remove the bezel make sure the front door/grill IS NOT ON or you will BREAK the push in / out lockers like I did now its 20 minutes old and I'll be using duck tape to hold the door closed

Cons: not much just the manual so 4 eggs not 5

Other Thoughts: Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case with a Few Minor Flaws

Pros: I have built a total of 5 workstations now using this case and built around i7 4770k/4790k Processors, some water cooled, some Air Cooled. I've crammed a decent amount of hardware into this thing including a Corsair H105 Water Cooler ontop of a 4790k, GTX 970 (Still room to use SLI) and 5 hard drives (3 HDD, 2 SSD) as well as M.2 as the main install drive, with a single optical dvd drive and a hot swap thermaltake 5.25" bay in the front. Airflow is good, cable management could be a little better as some have mention, but for the price point and aesthetics you really cant complain much (I hate plastic space age looking game cases!).

Cons: My only real gripe with this case is the 2.5' drive bays on the reverse side of the motherboard. While they are a good concept, they are placed way to far back to be convenient. Most of systems have been built using CX750 PSU's (Not Modular) which while technically offering enough eSATA power connections, only offers them on 2 strands, which have the connectors very close together as most do. The problem is reaching the back 2.5" drive bays and being able to connect them both. Its streching the cable so tight, it actually broke the power connection on a brand new 240gb OCZ 460a drive (thankfully it still works). Just a word of caution, if you plan on using this case, use a modular power supply. Also, the plastic these bays are made from is quite cheap and you will snap the retainer clip off with very little effort if you are not careful! This could have easily been solved by moving these bays up by 2 inches.

Other Thoughts: Overall, great cases. I will be building a few additional workstations this year and will use this 450D again as I enjoy the aesthetics and I like continuity in workstation environments.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: Lots of ventilation, seems like besides the side panels, this thing is just perforated metal. Had just enough room to put in a AIO liquid cooling unit for the CPU.

Cons: The cable management was difficult because there wasn't anything to really help hold the cables in place. It would have been nice to have some little hooks to make sure wires ran where I wanted them to be.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Case

Pros: Running with an HX100i, everything fit in here perfect. It COULD have a bit more cable management options and I would like to have had more room behind the mobo tray but these are minor gripes.

Also hats off to Corsair, mine came with one of the two tabs that click to hold the front filter cover on and they shipped me a whole new front bezel to replace it for free right away, no need to RMA the whole case like I was afraid they might ask for!

Cons: None

3 out of 5 eggsJust OK

Pros: 1. Stable
2. Solid construction
3. Roomy on the MOBO side
4. Modular drive cage

Cons: 1. Cable management could be WAY better. Not enough tie-down points
2. Side doors and window scratch easily
3. Optical bays are not stealthed
4. Bottom dust filter awkward to reach, awkward to put back

Other Thoughts: Some suggestions to make this case better:

1. Better quality acrylic on side window and more scratch resistant side doors
2. Move HHD cages to back (only using one HDD and have to have the whole cage in there showing)
3. Removable optical bay if not using drives
