4 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: -Looks sexy and sleek
-Functionality is mostly there - dust filters that are easily removable and cleaned, USB 3.0, air ventilation's great
-SSD slots in the back of the case are pretty good

Cons: -Back side where the cables go isn't very roomy, to the point where getting the side panel back on was a chore. Had to sit on the floor and get a both knees and an elbow on the corners to get it to close, and this is after cable management
-Cable management isn't made easy with there only being 2 or 3 ziptie loops. This is especially strange considering how little depth there is to the back side, meaning you need to spread your cables out but there's not enough loops to tie them up that way.
-Not SLI/Crossfire friendly: There isn't enough room in the case to run SLI GTX 780s. I only have one 780, but I took a look at how 2 of them would work for the future and there's just no way, unless I just completely remove the hard drive bays. As is, the HDD bays are in the way of a second video card, and if moved up they're in the way of the first video card.
-I had the same problem as some other people in the reviews with my power LEDs. I could only get one of them working, which looked annoyingly lopsided so I just disconnected them altogether. Not a problem for me because I have an LED strip inside the case.

Other Thoughts: All in all, this case does what I need it to do right now and it's absolutely beautiful looking. It's not the best in terms of upgrading, meaning if I want to run multiple video cards I'll need to either not use a HDD or just get a new case. I'd definitely recommend this case if SLI/Crossfire isn't a concern for you and if you don't mind doing some work to get the side panel on.

3 out of 5 eggsGood but not Great

Pros: Beautiful case, the front bezel looks amazing, ample room for everything, lots of features

Cons: Arrived damaged on the windowed side panel, and on the opposite side panel, but are un-noticeable unless you are looking from the back, but they are there and they look ugly

Other Thoughts: Nothing wrong with the case, but I wish the shipping would have been a little better, as the box also came with a dent and some cardboard ripped.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic case

Pros: Fantastic, clean aesthetic with a gorgeous side panel window. This is a mid range case with high end looks... you really can make a clean, beautiful build in this case.

3 high quality included fans with good airflow and minimal noise.

Dust filtering on all intakes.

Easy to build in:
-HDD cage is easily moved around, and tool-free design works well
-SSD mounts around the back of the motherboard tray are great
-Plenty of cable grommets for routing cables
-The top routing hole for the 8-pin CPU power connector is well placed and large, and it's angled nicely so that you can get a connector through even if you have already installed a (30mm/AIO) rad in the roof.

Tons of room for cooling, especially in the top of the case. An H110 mounted easily in the top, and depending on your motherboard you may even have the option of push/pull on a thin rad in the roof.

Support for a 240/280/360 rad in the roof, a 240/280 in the front, a 120/140 in the bottom (technically supports a 240 but good luck with that after installing your PSU...) and 120 in the rear is absolutely fantastic for a case of this size and price.

Price is fantastic for the feature set in this case

Build quality has some issues but overall is fine for a $100 case

Cons: Just a few small things, none of which really detracted from my experience with the case given the price:

The acrylic on the side window feels cheap. Mine arrived with small scratches and marks, though they're only noticeable up close.

The SSD mounts around the back are a little bit of a pain with thin SSDs. Older 9mm SSDs will click right in, but if you have 7mm or thinner SSDs, you will have to screw them into the mounts to keep them secure.

The case desperately needs an additional 10mm or so of cable routing room around the back and a few more cable tie points. If you load this case with hardware, you can expect to have a wrestling match with the rear side panel to try and get it to close.

The dust filtering mesh, particularly on the front of the case, is a bit more coarse than I like. A finer mesh would have been nice to filter more dust.

Speaking of the front mesh, the "press to release" clips are annoying. It's too easy to accidentally remove the front panel, especially while building in the case or moving it around. DON'T put this case down near young unsupervised children as they could easily (and accidentally) remove the front cover and get a finger in the fans.

There is more or less no included documentation with the case, and only minimal accessories. As such, this case is probably not a great option for first time builders.

Other Thoughts: This case is, overall, a great value. It offers high end aesthetics and features at a very cheap price, with only a few sacrifices on features and build quality.

This case was absolutely perfect for me. I was downsizing from a CM Storm Trooper because I wanted to move my gaming rig from a bedroom to our living room. I needed a case with full tower features but a more refined aesthetic and a maximum of 530mm in depth (the Trooper is about 560mm). This case was the perfect option for me!!

Personally, I would gladly have paid an additional $50-75 to get higher quality materials in the case, but it's not a big deal... I knew what I was getting.

The build I have in this:
ASRock z68 extreme7 gen 3
i7-2600k w/Corsair H110
16GB DDR3
GTX 780 SLI
Sound Blaster Z
AX1200
2x 256 GB SSD, 1x 4TB HDD, 1x 500GB HDD
5.25" 6 channel fan controller
Additional Noctua NF-P14 bottom intake fan
White NZXT 2m LED strip

5 out of 5 eggsGreat addition to Corsair's Obsidian series cases

Pros: Very efficient use of space. It's mid-tower-sized, but feels much larger when working in it. Build quality is par for the Obsidian series cases, which is great. I love the aesthetics of the case design. The two 5.25" bays are just the right number (I'm using one with a fan controller). Fits a decent number of fans for good air flow and the dust filters keep my build cleaner than any others I've made.

Cons: Most of the cons I have were already noted in previous reviews. The removable front panel is a little too easy to accidentally pop off, so just be careful. I would have liked just a little more room behind the motherboard for cables. Mounting for 140mm fans at the top means the fans would not be centered. Power and reset buttons are a little flimsy/plastic-y feeling every time you click them, plus the white LED doesn't match my white case fans.

Other Thoughts: I was able to mount a 120 rad in push/pull at the rear of the case, plus three 120 fans on top, two 140s at the front and one 120 at the bottom. All fans have white LEDs, toned down by my NZXT fan controller, and the all-black components and cables make everything look fantastic. This was a huge upgrade to my home build (previously a 300R).

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: - Great air flow
- Looks great
- Sturdy!
- Plenty of room to work in
- SSD mounts on the back of the mobo tray are awesome
- fits H100i radiator in the top

Cons: As others have stated the clearance for cable management is a bit slim. had to give the back panel quite a bit of force to make the 24 pin connector cable lie flat.

Not enough cable management loops

and if you have to use an optical drive it does make the front of the case look a little goofy.

very minor complaints though I still love this case

4 out of 5 eggsQuiet, loads of room, well made

Pros: -SSD holders behind the board.
-VERY quiet!
-Corsair H110 fit in the top of the case perfectly.
-Build quality is good for the cost.
-MUCH lighter than my old CM Scout.
-HDD & Power LED's are white

Cons: -Lack of screws! I had to steal screws out of an old case to install all of my hardware. it basically only comes with HDD screws, and MOBO screws.
-Could use more USB in the front of the case.
-Front aluminum fan guard clicks in and out by pressing lightly on the face. which makes it easy to remove, maybe too easy. If you push on the front of the case, even a little, it pops the face off. Not a big deal, but to save yourself frustration, take the face off when working on the machine.

Other Thoughts: Newegg's shipping was quick as always. My only real gripe is, I ordered the "Black" series version of the case, and was sent the normal one. The only real difference i can tell is, the normal one comes with white fan blades, and the black one is all black.

4 out of 5 eggsA Good/Decent Case

Pros: This case has a ton space for additional fans.
I live in a dusty area so, the filters are doing its job.
It has a nice metal feel on the front and sides of the case.
The interior is an all black finish with no sharp edges.
Pretty good features such as a motherboard stub and SSD mounts.
It is a very nice case if you can get it with Newegg promos and rebates.

Cons: Trying to fit a Seidon 240M is pretty hard not because it cannot fit but because the rubber anti-vibration mounts on the case is too thick.
The case could have included a few more tie-down slots for cable management.
Adding a 5.25in front drive bay pretty much disrupts the mojo in the front.
The side panels feel a bit flimsy making it hard to put it back on the case.

Other Thoughts: The rebate was pretty annoying because I had to talk to reps. from Corsair and Newegg to get it sorted out. The problem was sorted out within a few days after talking with Newegg. (Newegg had the rebate but wasn't shown on Corsair's site.)

5 out of 5 eggsExceptional case

Pros: Lots of space, comes with three fans, looks beautiful.

Cons: The LED lights for the power button are wired backwards, If you don't fix this the light on the right side will not work.(Not such a big problem but it'd be nice if it were put together correctly when it was made)

Other Thoughts: I really enjoy the design of the case, it fits with all of my other electronics. Sturdy case, although there are a couple pieces that detach. The front panel swivels on the bottom and has a push-lock on the top. There's also a screen on the very bottom held onto the base by small magnets.
