5 out of 5 eggsA pleasure to work with.

Pros: This case has so much space for a mid-ATX tower. I was able to put in a 12 inch graphics card (Sapphire R9 290) and didn't even have to remove a drive bay cage.

The tool-less drive bays and pre-installed standoffs were incredibly helpful. it made building in it much quicker and easier.

The huge 200m side case fan is a great free add-on. The extra cooling is fantastic. There is even room on the top for two more 120 mm fans or a radiator! Cooling will not be problem with this case.

The general athestics of the case are fantastic. They are understated but still look sharp. This is especially cool with the LEDs turned on.

Cons: I am unsure if my case fan controller switch is working but it's a pretty minor oversight.

Other Thoughts: I think this is the perfect case to work with on your first time build. It was incredibly easy to work with as a first time builder.

4 out of 5 eggsNear Perfect

Pros: -Good looks
-Lots of space for cable management thanks to bulge on the side
-Extra space up top for a radiator
-Tons of fan mount positions (2 more can be mounted on the HDD bay)

Cons: -Proprietary fan connectors. The fan controller does not connect to fans using a standard 3-prong plug. Instead, Corsair has made their own supposedly because of the lighting features in the controller. This makes the fans impossible to replace without some hacking or using molex connections
-Fan mounts on HDD cage interfere with the bottom mount. This could have been fixed by moving one of the mounts over a few millimeters.

Other Thoughts: The fan connectors have annoyed me for quite some time, as the provided fans are fairly sub-par. It is easily worth one egg deduction, if not more because these proprietary connectors are NOT advertised.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Case!

Pros: This case is big and that is a good thing for me. I was amazed as to how quiet the included fans are. They really help with airflow. Building my pc was easy and fast with the amount of room in it. The extra space for cable management is a plus. The build quality is also great. Overall it looks great and is roomy with superior build quality.

Cons: None that I can think of. The HDD led light can be a bit bright in a dark room though.

Other Thoughts: It easily fit the EVGA 780 classy and there is still room for a longer graphics card. In the dark with the fan led's turned on it looks amazing! Great buy, not regretting it one bit.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case!

Pros: It is very open, very good air flow. This case is rather big compared to what I am use to, but I wanted some good airflow for my gaming rig. This case is just that and it is so fricken quiet. My old case was a tad smaller and I had to put allot of fans and such in it. It sounded so loud all the time!

Cons: None atm, it was rather easy to put together and such.

3 out of 5 eggsGood case overall, PSU screw holes wouldn't line up.

Pros: - Thumb screws to open sides and to remove drive cages
- Good airflow, lots of space for expandability
- 3 Setting (L/M/H) Fan Controller and Fan LED Switch
- Very Sturdy Build
- Good for Cable Management

Cons: - HDD LED a bit too bright.
- Came with a few minor scratches, although they are hard to see.
- My Seasonic Power Supply can only go in one way (the one way is with the fan facing up). When I put the PSU with the fan facing down, none of the screw holes would line up. I tried removing the rubber on the bottom, but that didn't do anything. Then, when I put the rubber back and turned it the other way, all 4 holes lined up. I'm not sure if it's Corsair's or Seasonic's fault.

Other Thoughts: My motherboard had no 1394 port, so I couldn't use the front panel 1394. All front panel USB 3.0 ports, Audio In/Out ports, and Fan Speed and LED ports worked out of the box without any problem. The diagram of screws was very helpful. Overall, I think this case is good if you're not going to pair it up with a Seasonic PSU.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Case!

Pros: Lots of space, extra room behind side panel for wiring, extensive expansion options, accepts ATX and uATX (micro) Form Factor, mounting hardware included!

Cons: None so far, I'll let you know!

Other Thoughts: I just swapped my uATX board into this monster of a case. I bought this case with plans on building a full gaming unit eventually and I am convinced after working with it that I made a great choice. Loads of air flow coupled with slots on top of slots of drive expansion and a place to route my wiring out of the way proves this. You will need some technical know how to wire up the power button and power/ drive activity lights if you are using a box store pc board. I was able to figure it out by looking at the factory switch, very simple if know simple wiring. I started with a Hewlett Packard p6774y pc. I was able to re-use the power supply (soon to be replaced), hard drive and disc drive. The plate for the fixed ports on the board didn't line up exactly, but it's super close and not worth an egg. If you are building a full pc or just looking to expand you current pc, this tower would be a great benefit to you. Happy gaming!

2 out of 5 eggsDecent

Pros: -H100I fits great-
-Drive Bays are easy to work with-
-Basic Fan controller for Low-High setting & lights on and off-

Cons: Feels very cheap in construction to me, one of the side panels buckled in the middle with light pressure.

I had to grind down the rivets to allow my PSU to fit and not be scratched. It looked like a small child's first use of a rivet gun job thing...

Other Thoughts: I have many corsair products, and this is really the only one I would say I don't get my moneys worth. I expected a lot better Quality for a case over 100 clams, or maybe I just don't what what I am talking about .

4 out of 5 eggsGreat first time build case

Pros: I was able to get this case for 99 USD and I can confidently say I it was worth every penny, this was my first build and I was able to get the motherboard in with no problems what so ever, It has a great amount of airflow and the thumbscrews made life while building a lot easier than when I worked on my mother's hp pc. There is amble room in the back for cable management and the case feels very sturdy, great first builder case

Cons: 2 things that were a pain were as a first time builder I had some doubt about the elevated stand offs in the top of the case but I looked it up and it was fine to put the mother board there, also It was kind of hard to screw the top screws for the the motherboard to the point where the screw driver slipped but thankfully I did n ot damage anything, oh and one last thing that kind of sucks is the proprietary fan connectors

Other Thoughts: overall a great case to build in
