Faulty Fan Controller
Pros: Solid design, well built (Structure-wise) And structural parts/mesh and windows are very cheap on their website.
Cons: There have been widespread issues with the fan controller going out. Mine went one fan at a time until they were all dead. And this is after about a year of normal use- and support is kind of an issue. I don't have a warranty, and Corsair says that I can't just request or purchase a new controller/io board. So I'm stuck with a useless dial on my case. Corsair support suggested that I connect my fans directly to the mobo. Thanks! lol. Also, those of us planning on using the hugely popular H100 series coolers will run into issues if planning on push/pull configs(due to mobo mounting too high up )
Overall Review: Just sits there and looks cool.
Great design, works just O.K. for higher cores. RGB fans are NOT Static Pressure!
Pros: Design, appearance, video screen is awesome, software works good.
Cons: 240mm isn't going to be enough for higher-core CPU's like the 5900x I have. I tend to get 60's on warm days with heavy browsing, tabs open. Included fans should be Static-Pressure, but are not! The included ones are airflow design. Their cheaper, non-rgb fans ARE SP, so I guess we take a performance hit for fancy colors lol. The temp display tends to freeze sometimes, restarting the CAM software mostly resolves this.
Overall Review: Good design overall, good software... Definitely confused why the RGB fans aren't SP? I replaced the stocks with Icue SP fans and it helped a bit. So 5000 AMD users prob should go for the 360mm. They do run hotter than others though.
Literally 2 more CM and it would fit a micro!
Pros: Seems good quality during build, no sharp edges tooling done well. It's the only one my mom liked out of the M-itx cases.
Cons: If they would've just made it 2-4 CM deeper it would be a perfect itx-atx micro combo case... Normal psu will put lots of pressure on the 24-pin/USB 3 jack. I've done a few mods to it, but cannot fit a normal psu in.
Overall Review: Good but missed a nice opportunity to sell for both form factors.
