Pros: Plenty of room in the case, and it looks great. Really like the removable HDD trays and the front-end filters for the 120mm fans.
Cons: Although the case is loaded with fans, after some cooling tests I've noticed some redundancy. I watched my GPU/CPU temps as I manipulated the fans and got a few surprising results.
I experienced no temperature improvements running both rear fans, and I actually got optimal results with one rear fan completely off and the other on low. It appeared that the dual fans on high actually ended up pulling air away from the CPU/GPU fans. This could be attributed to the stock heat sink on the i7 980x.
The power button died after about two years, there's a short somewhere in the wiring. I've ended up just putting the reset button on the power jumper, which works, but I no longer have a reset.
Other Thoughts: It's a nice case overall, but I think the number of fans is kind of a gimmick at this point. It doesn't seem to be airflow optimized, and I've had better results with fewer fans. This may be CPU specific. It turns out the power button issues are a common problem on this case as well.
Good case, it's solid, can be customized, but in 2015 I think you can do better.

Cons: Side panels and interior are flimsy. Cable management needs improvement. The tool-less mechanism for 5.25in bay is trash. Some faded spots on my front aluminum panel. Magnets.
Other Thoughts: Okay let's be real, Corsair's definitely on crack. For this price there's so many things wrong with this case, at most it's only worth $60-70. The only thing that's well built on this is the front panel, the rest is something that you'd find in a $40 case. I've avoided Corsair's products for many years and thought I'd give them a shot with all their hype and I definitely regret my purchase. Yes I could return it but I don't have the time to move all my parts back into my old case.

Pros: Great case with high air flow, near silence, and more than enough room for almost anything you want to put in there. Only time I ever hear it is when I mess with the fan settings to make them ramp up to 80-100%.
Cons: In my case the front panel likes to pop itself off from time to time. Not enough to take a star off for but it still is a con
Other Thoughts: I bought this case because it was silent and looked great, but also had great water cooling support, however the define s came out a month after I finished my build which looks amazing for mid tower water cooling.
