5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Keeps my case virtually dust free. The white tower and white LED's go great together. Very customizable. Very well done cord management.

Cons: The PSU slot is on the bottom. Can make for tricky cord stretching if you have an older PSU.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: lots of room.
hidden wire management
massive amount of fans possible

Cons: msi 970a-g46 only has one molex connector so i have to choose between the 120 on the back and the 200 on the side. only three of the holes lined up on my raidmax power supply. the top fan mounts do not accept normal screws had to go find washers to keep the screws from falling through.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case, Great Size, Great Look

Pros: Great size, between a mid and full tower, which is just what I was looking for but not too common to find.The cable management capabilites of this case are superb. The fans included provide great cooling, but there is room for even more fans if you need them. Amazing look with the white sides and LEDs - not black like every case ever. The hand screws are nice and easy to work with. The storage docks are great. Overall really good case that I'm very satisfied with.

Cons: The case has one molex plug. I hate molex plugs.

Not too big of a deal and it can't be helped anyway.

Other Thoughts: If you are specifically doing a small build I might not recommend it. The size is very nice for a mid to large size build with extra wiggle room for futureproofing, but not too large that it is a behemoth.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: I got this case for a new machine build, I needed something with a lot of hard drive bays so I can mount old harddrives from yesteryear. I wanted a case to breath well as I am intending on overclocking the computer.

It looks great, kind of like a Storm Trooper. The quality, like most of Corsairs products, is very good.

It has plenty of room and access ports to route wires out of view. The punch outs on the side are great for dealing with hiding all your cabling.

It has tons of fans and breaths extremely well. I like that it has posts on the bottom of the case to get it off the ground and let more air flow underneath it.

Cons: Routing a few cables from the Power Supply to items on the top of the case was tight with the cable length. In the end I was able to connect everything but you should make sure your cables can reach.

The harddrive trays want to pop out when your plugging in your sata cables into the drives.

The stock fans are noisy, especially so with this free flowing case.

Not enough cons to justify a knock against the case.

Other Thoughts: I put in a Corsair H100i cpu cooler, assembling the fans for the unit as per the instructions of the H100i to attach them directly to the radiator. However when I installed it the h100i fans hit the ram banks on a Asus Sabertooth Z97.

Upon further investigation I pulled off the top grill to see there is just enough room to mount the radiator of the cooler. The grill doesn't quite sit flush, sticks up about 1mm, but the grill does still lock into place. So from inside to out, its, fans, case, radiator, grill. The case has a cutout to account for the tubing going from the radiator to the cpu.

The h100i also recommends to suck air in, however all the other case fans except the back fan are also sucking air in so I think it would be better if they pushed air out of the case through the radiator. Your front and side fans suck in, top and back fans push out. Your CPU may run a few degrees hotter doing this as your cooling with warm case air and not cool outside air.

5 out of 5 eggsSimple but nice looking case

Pros: - Nice cable management
- Very spacious.
- 2x USB 3.0 Front ports.
- 3 White LED fans 2x 120mm and 1x 200mm.
- Lots of fan mount locations, currently running 3x intake and 3x exhaust
- White case with some black as well.
- Bottom and top dust filter.
- Very simple design, I LIKE IT!!!
- Top tray to put USB thumb-drives or anything small.
- Removable HDD cage to fit long graphics card.
- I did end up getting my $20 rebate card. ($80 after rebate)

Cons: - The only negative is removing the front panel to clean the mesh dust filter which is a pain to remove. If only it popped out like the top dust filter it would of been awesome.

Other then that I don't see anything wrong with this case.

Other Thoughts: This review has been held of for about a year, i'll make it quick.

This case was my choice for my first computer build. I really like this case due to its simple yet modern design with a white finish.

The case already had screws installed for a mid-atx motherboard so that was nice. Also another thing to add is the top HDD cage is removable to fit longer cards even with the cage I was still able to fit my R9 280x which measures 12.2inches with about a half inch to spare but I still ended up removing the cage for maximum airflow from the the front case fans. It comes with 4 pre-installed case fans and even after 1+ year they are working just fine I replaced the rear fan and kept the three LED ones. Also has a fan speed controller to control the LED fans. Furthermore the cable management is acceptable with various spots to re-route your cables through. The case also has 3 areas with mesh to protect from dust getting in, it has 2 removable ones (top and bottom) and in the front panel which isn't removable.

Overall I like this case, I highly recommend it.

3 out of 5 eggsPretty nice.

Pros: Cable management is easy.
a great number of places to install fans and radiators.
you can install plexi glass if you want where the side mesh is.
lots of air filters
any PSU will fit really unless its just HUGE

Cons: The fans that come with it are pretty cheap.
terrible fan controller
bottom feet will peel if youre not careful
side door screws do stay in the door... but they dont exactly line up right so u have to cross thread them.
mm....Sort of cheap USB 3.0 Ports on the front.

Other Thoughts: I bought this too soon before doing al my research... i wish i would have gone with the Corsair 540.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very customizable, able to place many fans where I would like. Easy clipping in HDD's and other drives, plenty of space even for massive dual video cards.

Keep cables underneath the motherboard for a nice clean look.

Also, after a year of use, dust collection has been VERY low, and I keep it on a carpet.

Cons: You will need very long PSU cables for everything to reach.

Cons: none except it can get dirty because its white but really its worth it it looks great

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: -Air Flow
The main reason I bought this case was because my computer was overheating. This case keeps everything cool with the 3 intake fans. My video card is older and has heat issues playing newer games. In my old standard 1 intake, 1 exhaust case I was crashing at 90 C. Under the same conditions, I get no higher than the low 70s using this case.

-Looks
As a bonus, the case looks fantastic. While a little on the big side for a Mid Tower, it is very sleek. I usually keep the LEDs off, but turning them on is neat.

-Spacious
I'm not great with cable management, but this case makes it pretty easy. Lots of wiggle room.

Cons: -Dent
My case was damaged on arrival. The corner of the wall with the intake is dented near the screw. The screw still fit, so it was functional. I didn't want to risk losing the rebate (time constraints, more shipping, etc) so I just kept it.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this case to anyone with room for it. Just be mindful that it is large!
