Pros: Well built
Ton's of cables
Cons: Wires are a bit stiff
Wire sizes don't seem to fit the few wire combs I have tried.
Other Thoughts: I now own two sets of these. The black set and the newly purchased red set. For the price, these are hands down some of the nicest looking cables you will come across.
The box has every cable you would need for your G2/P2 EVGA SuperNova power supply. I do mean every cable that the PSU can use all for under $100. For the same thing in Corsair, you would pay nearly double and they have heat shrink showing.
My only issues are that the wires are pretty stiff and can make wire routing a bit difficult and that the wire seems to be smaller than the nice wire combs you can buy to really give it that nice straight look.
That being said, I will order these on every build that I do that would like a nice custom sleeved wire look.
The case it's self is well built.
For the size, it isn't overly heavy
Ideal for most high end liquid cooling
Cons: There are some serious design flaws.
Does not have a full set of wire grommets:
For some reason or another, Corsair chose not to include wire grommets for the top two spaces. Also I think there could have been a better design for the wire management for the 5.25 slots that should have included wire grommets
Sketchy radiator compatibility:
The EK 480MM PE radiator(Which is their slim radiator) would only fit on the top in one way. The case connectors blocked any chance of the radiator fitting the way I wanted. The front space that should fit a 360MM, will not even fit a 240MM without some case modding if there are any radiators installed in the bottom spaces. This was severely disappointing because I had planned to use a 240mm radiator there.
Like many have said here, the drive bays are complete trash. Many cases have much better quality when it comes to drive bays for a far smaller price tag.
PCI-E screws are near impossible to use with out some serious effort. In order to mount the 3 GTX 780 Classifieds with waterblocks, it took a good 30~45 minute effort between my son and I to finally get all the screws in place.
Magnetic doors and filters are weak and struggle to stay closed/on.
Included fans are not quite and will be quickly replaced for most people.
Other Thoughts: I would like to address something I noticed while I was reviewing reviews on this case. Many of the reviews that gave any bad reviews were immediately given thumbs down reviews even though they were quite honest.
This case is not perfect by a long shot. I personally believe it is a bit expensive for the overall quality of the case and the included items inside the case. That being said, the next case that offers more is nearly $600 from Case labs.
I do feel that Corsair should offer a midplate option and the correct amount of wire grommets for all wire management holes.
I also would like to see a clear window option. These are personal opinions.
Other than then mentioned cons, I will be using this case for a long time after some mods.
If anyone decided to really read this entire review, please don't rate down unless you honestly think I have been unfair to this product.
High quality feel.
Other Thoughts: I ended up winning this kit from a Facebook competition with Klevv. I wanted to see how this new challenger would stack up next to my current preference DIMM supplier.
I benchmarked my current kit which is the G.Skill Ripjaw x 2133Mhz CL9 vs the Klevv Urbane 2400Mhz CL11.
I figured the speed difference would give Klevv the advantage but I also figured that with the G.Skill having lower timings that it would equal the playing field a bit.
In every benchmark the Klevv beat the G.Skill by a health margin. It even had lower latency by a bit.
I honestly had no grips about this product at all. I would have replaced my kit permantley if I can get my hands on another 8GBs. I encourage everyone to give this company a try. They very well could be my new choice in RAM.
