Overall Review: Looks really good, like how the glass is tinted
Pros: Quality. Every surface feels high quality. The coating they used on the metal is tough and it feels premium. I love that there are no rough edges in this case. Usually in budget cases you find rough or even sharp edges. There is enough room to run cables in an intelligent fashion, and where their cable management fails, there are plenty spots to anchor zip-ties.
Cons: The hard drive cage and the power supply can be cumbersome to work with, but in Corsair's defense, a mid size case just doesn't allow much room. I had to move my hard drive cage to the secondary position to fit my Corsair RM 550x PSU (which isn't huge). The modular plugs were a pain to reach with the cage in place, but again, in Corsair's defense. This is more of a space problem than a design problem.
Overall Review: Quality case at a great price. Not much else to say.
Pros: Cable management was very nice and easy to use.
Good aesthetics with an all black build
Cons: Could be heavier gauge metal - but for the price it is OK.
Overall Review: Yes - for the price very nice
Pros: Comes with tons of cable managing features.
Easy to build in
Cons: Needs more airflow
Overall Review: Wouldve rather gotten a 4000d airflow, but it was $30 more expensive.
Pros: - Sturdy. I can lean on it with no worries.
- Easy to use, the design is intuitive and didn't give me any confusion other than the door at first.
- Comes with plenty of screws
- Good airflow, quiet fans. Keeps the temperature down.
- Filters! Intake filters are non-negotiable with my pets. These ones are nice.
Cons: - Too big for migrating straight from a mini-ITX system. Specifically the PSU cables from the SFX power supply cannot reach the motherboard mount, so you may need a new PSU. EPS, 24-pin, and PCIE were out of reach.
- The SSD mounts are only semi-toolless, you still need a screwdriver to mount the SSDs to the sleds in the first place.
- It was a little non-obvious how to take off the side panels, and the manual with the directions is inside the case, behind said side panels.
- The smoked glass is a bit too dark for my liking. You'll see LEDs through it but nothing that they're shining on.
- No Y splitter included for the case fans.
Overall Review: A solid case. Nothing in it makes me unhappy, and it's well-built.
It's reliable, and it doesn't get in the way. Exactly what I'd hope for in a "standard" computer case.
Do note that it's a bit larger than you may expect. Bigger than a prebuilt by about 20%.
Pros: Room for everything you can imagine 360 AOI for CPU, 240 AIO for GPU, 4 X Hard Drives with 2 X M2 SSD. Air Flow even with the solid front panel, USB type C. Strong but light and looks great.
Cons: None from what I can see.
Overall Review: Would recommend for any type of build.
Pros: Great quality. I came from the c70. A larger case. I do miss the handles
Cons: Too wide. Hard to fit liquid coolers and boards.
The 5000d is a better choice if more then 1 aio is used.
Not really a con but no optical drives.
Isn't an issue in 2022
Overall Review: Case is very nice to look at.
Pros: Looks nice and has great cable management. Plenty of bays and a good amount of fan/aio cooler options. Dust screens that are easy to remove and clean.
Cons: Got the solid front and it ran around 8 C hotter with it on.
Overall Review: So when i was looking at the case I basically checked the fan configuration and bays from spec then looked at reviews. The pics looked like how I wanted to set my pc so I bought it. I did not know that related items were shown on the reviews... I saw all airflows and assumed I was getting that. Once I got and found that it ran considerably hotter with the solid front I contacted corsair and they sent me a new front airflow panel! I was expecting to to have to purchase it but they said no charge.
