Fantastic Tower

Pros: I've been using this tower for 2 years now. I'm in love with how well I'm able to hide me cables, and the amount of space it provides for future upgrading. It has more then enough hardrive space, and it handles keeping the case cool even after long periods of gaming or editing.

Cons: The only problem I have come across (Like many others I have noticed) is the left USB slot on the front of the case. It's a bit, finicky, it tends to not respond when I plug something in. That's only 25% of the time though. Not a big deal, but sometimes annoying.

Other Thoughts: I've been thinking about getting another tower, but I can't seem to let go of this wonderful case! I'd recommend this to anyone who is first time building, or even people who are just looking for a great look and easy customization!

Great, solid case

Pros: - Solid construction
- Comes with multiple fans and has enough room for expansion
- Nice LEDs and 2 USB 3.0 ports on the front
- Still going strong after 3 .5 years

Cons: - None

Other Thoughts: - First case came in with damaged thumb screw area and could not properly secure side panel, but Newegg replaced it right away and the replacement case is perfect.

Came with SERIOUS flaws

Pros: - Giant sized (pretty heavy) mid tower = plenty of space to work with (can also be a con if you don't want a case this huge)
- Really big side fan included = nice for direct air intake onto your GPU (and CPU)
- Also two fans in the front = nice for airflow especially in a case this big
- A useful push-to-pop-out lid on top for adjusting cables/cooler
- Top drive cage (of 2) is removable = better airflow and allows installing massive GPUs
- Using screws, SSD can fit into existing drive bays

Cons: - #1 MAJOR flaw: there are little metal nubs on the case near two important locations - the main GPU expansion slot in the back and near the bottom where the PSU goes.
They didn't get filed down. So #1 prevents easy installation of the GPU because you'll have to slip and wiggle the back (output part) of the GPU under the nub so it can smoothly slot into the PCI-E. This risks damaging your GPU!! #2 is more of an annoyance because your PSU won't fully stick to the back since the nubs are protruding. Makes it hard to screw tightly.
- The drive sleds for the bay are cheap plastic and they don't firmly slot into place. They're quite loose which is bad for HDDs with moving parts.
- Motherboard standoffs already installed, top 3 are strange little mounds which made it hard to line up my ATX mobo.
- Dust panels, at least on the top, don't seem to hold out dust very well. Slips in through cracks.
- Front panel is very stiff and hard to pop out. I haven't taken it out yet for fear of breaking it.
- Internal thumbscrews for the expansion slots in the back need a screwdriver the first time. They're too tight.

Other Thoughts: No, I would not recommend this case. But it was really cheap with the rebate.

It's a decent case for the $60-80 bracket, but I have to give it ONE STAR for one reason: the nubs. Why would you risk a case killing your expensive GPU? FILE THE METAL NUBS DOWN. Why would you leave something sharpish and hard so close to critical installation areas?

p.s. Newegg why is the word 'screw-ed' not allowed in a PC case review?

Solid Case

Pros: -Looks sweet but not too over-the-top
-Spacious
-Reasonable cable management
-Side-panel fan

Cons: -Enormous, for some probably too large
-No side-panel window, if you care about that kind of thing
-Front panel has some USB ports but is pretty "meh."

Other Thoughts: The side-panel fan really helps manage temperatures and keep good airflow going, so I like it, but a lot of people like to have a window on the side panel so they can make their rig look dope. Personal preference, I went for the side fan on purpose, but some will view that as a con. Also, while I like its size, some may struggle to even fit this thing under their desk. It's almost unreasonable size might be off-putting to some, and it could stand to have more/better ports on the front panel, but is still a very good case for the price, and a looker.

Best case by a grand company!!

Pros: - has a decent amount of space so installation is nice and easy
- radiator mount support
- case has been out for a while, yet has 3.0 on the front
- stock fans work great
- looks sleek and nice
- instructions were simple and nice
- very nice heavy build quality
- screwless design is SO NICE

Cons: - wish the side panel (without the fan) had just a little more wiggle room for cable management

Other Thoughts: Fantastic!! I waited for a slight price drop so I got this at $129, absolutely worth it!! The case fans work very well and are actually very quiet! even with the built in fan controller on high! I've been a Corsair fan for a long time and this case is almost every reason that makes me feel that way about them. Great quality for a good price! Highly recommend!

Lots of room to work with

Pros: I've had this case for about two years now and it's been great, Lots of room for hard drive storage and easy to install or remove. Also the storage for cable management is key. The top storage is pretty sweet with my dual 120mm fans that are connected to my h100i v2 is mounted to underneath.

Cons: Side fan is a dust magnet but easy to clean, also as said in previous reviews the front fans are harder to clean, there is also a dust filter that over a long period of time I can barely see the front LED lights anymore. Might be that I'm lazy and don't want take things apart to try and take it out and clean it. May not be the best looking on the market with RGB and tempered glass but i'm not going to dock an egg on aesthetic.

Other Thoughts: There were some reviews complaining about the integrated dust filter on the top fan cover causing airflow issues and higher temps, the mesh is easily cut with a razor blade and can be pulled right out, with my i5 4590 and h100i cooling my cpu is at about 27 degrees in bios.

Love the case, faulty/outdated front panel

Pros: Lots of space, lots of fan mounts, cable management is good. Hard drive trays are easy to use and convenient. Looks cool

Cons: Front panel is cheap, Audio jacks stopped working first, then within a year the USB stopped as well. Also, why does it even have a 1394 port? Would be much better with extra USB or SD card reader. Could care less about the fan controls. Corsair rebates suck

Other Thoughts: Picked up one of these a few years ago for <$100. I was very happy with the purchase at first but the front panel gave me issues within the first year. Having the 1394 port makes the case seem outdated; Extra USB ports that could charge mobile devices or a SD card reader would add more value. I like this case and would get another since mine is broke but not without an update to the front panel

Great case, plenty of room

Pros: -Heaps of room, This case is pretty much a bridge between atx mid and atx full size.
-Cable management was easy
-Tons of fans and places for more fans, Side fan is offset so big cpu coolers dont interfere
-Slotting ins HDD, cd drives is simple and fast.

Cons: The only bad thing i can think of is there should be a bulge in the back panel around where the hard drives slot in as the sata cables get smooshed against the side panel when putting it on, Other than that nothing.
