Pros: Good overall clean looks, high quality rubber grommets, lots of flexibility for installing drives (3.5" & 2.5"), lots flexibility for installing fans, lots of room on the inside to allow for a wide range of configurations & decent price (129.99 AR)
Cons: questionable quality (flimsy side panels & extremely delicate front panel), not enough rubber grommets for cable management (if you use an eATX board you're not gonna be able to use them), no side vents for air flow (GPUs runs particularly hot) & the front panel chokes the front intake fans
Other Thoughts: Overall a decent case but Corsair really could have done a much BETTER job. One of the things I found particularly irritating with my case was the already mentioned delicate front panel, the brush aluminum is a stain magnet and with my particular case the brush plating for the top portion ,where the power/reset switch & USB ports are, started to separate from the main cover piece (either poor quality glue or not enough of it).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I've had this power supply for a little over two months and have not had a problem yet. There were times where I had my rig running 24hrs straight with two 7870s full blast mining litecoins and never had a hiccup.
This thing has enough connectors and is beefy enough to power three mid range GPU. I wouldn't be surprise if it has enough juice for me to put in a third 7870 if I wanted to.
Cons: None that I could think of.
Other Thoughts: I bought this when it was on sale for $125 with a $25 MIR such a steal. A few years back I spent $90 on OCZ 700Watt Modextream and while that was a pretty good PSU and it pails in comparison with this PSU.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Looks great, plenty of room, great cable management (the best IMO), great drive mounting system
Cons: Side panels has a lot of flex, no option for 120mm front fans, side panels are not as flushed at the bottom (but not too noticeable), plastic exterior feels a bit cheap, no USB 3.0 internal header, minor concern with the white color staining over time.
Other Thoughts: Despite the long list of cons they are somewhat minor issues. However with a price tag of $150 I really do think corsair could've done a better job, that or lower the price to around $100 - $120.READ FULL REVIEW
