5 out of 5 eggsGorgeous Case

Pros: This case is sick! Plenty of room to work with, excellent airflow, dust filters in all the right places. Love the 140mm fans on the front. Cool temps all day!

Cons: I only have two gripes about this case. There aren't many places to zip-tie cables on the back-side of the mobo tray. There are a few, but could definitely use more. Also, if you plan on using an optical drive, removing the 5.25 bezel makes the front no longer flush. It doesn't look terrible by any means, but I would have designed it differently.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic case for the money

Pros: -Great looking with professional ascetic
-Ridiculous amount of radiator support.
-Super spacious build are making for a very pleasing work environment
-Support for up to 430mm long graphics card.
-Removable HDD cage
-Dual Spring loaded SSD cages behind the motherboard tray
-Support for long PSUs

There is so much working room in this case. Have a graphics card and an H80i? Throw it onto the rear exhaust. Want to cool your CPU with a Nepton 280L? Throw it onto the roof. I have yet to work with a case that is this easy to work in.

Cons: -HDD cage is quite flimsy.
-It is easy to remove the front panel by accident.
-Cable management is a little tricky with non-modular PSUs.
-Side panels are also a little tricky to put back into place.
-Side panels don't have retained the screws.
-Windows side panel is a little rough on the inside (Completely unnoticeable from the outside).
The cable management can be tough when you have all your PSU cables in use. I had to rely on the old "Two man resetting the back side panel." method.

4 out of 5 eggsGood case but small details hold it back

Pros: - Fantastic amount of room in this case. Freaking easy to install anything and route cables. Only a fool would have a hard time installing a system into this chasis. Speaking of installation, the center of board has a prebuilt standoff which sticks up from the tray. Just sit the board on top of it. It helps to hold board in place and assists in lining the board up with the other mother board standoffs to put screws in.
- Hard drive cages made it easy to install drives. Just slide drives in and they snap into place, both 3.5” and 5.25” bays.
- SSD drives can be mounted behind mother board trays. Easy to install as well.
- Fans are high quality and produce great air flow. My fans are hooked to my mother board and running at 50%. System temps are low and system is quite.
- Plenty of dust filters and they are all easy as can be to remove.
- Case looks really nice and classic.
- Huge hole behind CPU makes mounting any aftermarket cooler a snap.
- Hard drive cage can be moved up or down depending on how you want air to flow. If you have only SSD drives, mount them behind the motherboard. This will allow you to remove the HD cage permanently which will increase air flow.
- Cables inside the case (power, HDD activity, USB 3.0, etc.) appear to be fairly long and are well routed. Should be no problems here.
- Left side of case has a huge clear panel. Easy to see inside the case and you see everything.

Cons: - Cable management could be a touch better. It’s good but not great. An extra quarter or a third of an inch of more space behind the mother board would have made a major deal. Or, have the back cover bulge out a bit to allow for more room for the cables. For a typical system with a single video card along with 2 or 3 HDs with a DVD/BluRay drive the user should not have a problem although people with non-modular PSUs may have a little extra work to do.
- Front and back covers are a bit thin. They flex a fair amount when removing them or putting them back on. Not bad but noticeable.
- Front air filter for the front fans may need to be a bit more course to filter dust better. I haven’t had my chassis long so it is hard to say how the filter will do. Plus, the area my system is in isn’t bad about dust so I may not ever notice a problem. Others may though.
- LEDs on the front fan would’ve been nice.

Other Thoughts: Great job Corsair. This is a very well made case combined with some thoughtful design elements. This review gives four eggs though. The devil is in the details and the details hold this case back a bit. My last case, an Antec Nine Hundred Two v3, was a horrible case. The 450d beats it hands down.

However, this case does flex a bit here and there. The cable management on the backside could easily be better as well. Adding a touch more space behind the motherboard would have made this an awesome to great case. In that case, I would have given this case five stars.

I suggest Corsair come out with a 450D+ and fix the very minor problems with this case.

To those reading this, don’t let my four star review deter you from buying this case. It’s a fantastic case. I seriously doubt you can find a better case for the price. Get it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Really nice case. It's sturdy, sleek, and has plenty of room for what ever you want to put in it. Best of all is that the power and hd leds are dim and wont make your room look like there is a rave going on.

Cons: Ssd mounts are a little flimsy but do the job

4 out of 5 eggsGood case

Pros: -Really clean and professional looking front panel.
-Window is beautiful.
-Superb water cooling support. I could fit 3 radiators in here. All at once. In a case this size thats insane. Space for everything you need for a custom loop.
-Superb cable management. If you have a non modular power supply, things could get a bit tight, though.
-Room for 2way SLI/XFire
-Great airflow... if you decide to get rid of the hard drive bay in the front. That thing will block pretty much all air to a 2nd GPU if you dont have an intake on the bottom of the case near the PSU.
-Stands a bit off the ground so you have lots of space to intake air from.
-All the filters are easy to clean, and magnetic. The front filter is a bit tougher but a can of compressed air does the job.
-Included fans are most certainly not garbage like the older corsair fans.
-Fits an h100i and (with some elbow grease) will fit an h105. I'd check your measurements first with an h105 before buying one. Fits with some mobos, doesnt fit others.
-Rubber feet. Goes nicely on a desk.
-Despite looking like brushed aluminum, the front is a breeze to clean with pretty much anything, including a swipe of your hand. Looks like brushed aluminum, tastes like it, smells like it, but doesnt stain like it.
-SSD cages on the back work well.

Cons: -You have to route your HD audio cable over your PSU to plug it in.
-The top of your motherboard and all of its wires, especially if you have an AIO water cooler, can be a wild ride. You'll either have to route wires behind the mobo itself or up through the left corner. Theres no cable management holes up there.
-Will starve a second GPU of air if the hard drive cage is in and theres no intake on the bottom of the case. The included fans dont have the pressure to push air through that cage.
-Has a wider stance and looks pretty awkward with a CD/DVD drive in there.

Other Thoughts: Great case. Enough said.

5 out of 5 eggsBest case for the money

Pros: This case comes with everything you want from the more expensive cases at a fraction of the price. Room for upwards of eight case fans for overkill cooling at its best. Looks great and I highly recommend the 450D.

Cons: You will have to organize the cables just right to get the side panel to close correctly.

Other Thoughts: Great case and it easily fits my Evo 212 cooler on my MSI 970 board.

4 out of 5 eggsPosssibly the best mid-tower case

Pros: Well designed

Cons: Not yet

Other Thoughts: My only purpose of this review is to clarify if this case accept the Corsair H105. Well, in my case, almost fits. It basically depends of your mobo. I own the ASUS 97 Pro and it fits! Just a little issue but not big deal. In the upper external bay I did put my ASUS DVD-RW and it doesn't fit but not problem at all as the lateral face of the radiator fan stop it. So, with my DVD a little out my case looks nice! In the lower 5.25" bay I did put my Pioneer BD burner (longer) and it clicks perfectly. There is not clearance between the radiator's fans and the top mobo passive cooler (cooling the mosfets), but it fits! Not problem at all with your DRAM module. Indeed a great case!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Case

Pros: Looks beautiful. There is enough space in here for everything I put into it. The dust filters are nice to have and being magnetic is so nice for easy cleaning. I have seven fans installed in this case (2 on top with the Corsair H100i, 2 on the front, 1 on the back and 2 on the bottom). I love that I can move the HDD bays. I moved mine from the bottom to the top (right under the 5.25" bays) to make room for the bottom fans.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The side window is so cool. I put green cathode lights in the case and everything looks beautiful. I highly recommend this case to everyone.
