4 out of 5 eggsVery good size for a mid-tower

Pros: It has more than enough room for my graphics cards, which is nice considering many mid sized cases don't support ones above 8 inches.

All of the vents have air filters on them to help stop dust from collecting inside. You can also choose what vents you want to use as they can be blocked off.

Cons: You NEED a modular power supply or else your cable management will suffer. There is not a lot of room to route cables in the back which in my opinion is the only flaw of this design.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Sturdy and keeps my system super quiet. Has plenty of cable room for routing. I plan on buying this case again for my gaming computer.

Cons: Slightly bigger than your average mid-tower, or it seems that way. It would be nice to have the option to buy without the side vent that throws off the look.

5 out of 5 eggsVery satisfied after 2 years

Pros: Plenty of room; I have an ssd and 3 hdd in the case. Very easy to make changes. Like that it has 3 fans and the filters seem to work well. Quiet, Not too tall. Very straightforward / clean assembly with modular power supply and other components.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Would make the same choice again. I believe it will serve me well for years to come.

5 out of 5 eggsA great case

Pros: This case is very easy to open and work within, and the fans are nearly silent. Upgrades are performed quickly and the front-mounted ports are extremely useful.

Cons: None that come to mind.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you need a case this large before purchasing. There are other, smaller cases in the Corsair family that have most of the features of this case without the imposing size.

5 out of 5 eggsLike a Butler - Silent and Effective

Pros: The case is solidly built. It won't win any awards for flash, but it's stylish and sleek in its understated way. It includes plenty of cable management (which I never take advantage of as much as I should), and its sound-dampening features are perfect. Even at 2 AM, with the ambient noise of the house and the city, if I couldn't see the power button I wouldn't know the rig was even running unless I put my ear to it.

Cons: None. This may not be the perfect computer case, but if not, it has to be pretty close.

Other Thoughts: It's not really a con, per se, but in the dim lighting I use it in most of the time, the power button light can actually begin to be distracting.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Looks great, if you're not into the whiz-bang of LEDs and windows. Keeps quiet, and still runs pretty cool. Has optional panels and tons of mounts for customizable airflow.

Cons: The door hinge broke within days of using it. There's a cut-out on the front for USB ports, which means you can't open the door if stuff is plugged in (seriously, how did they overlook that?). Seems to get exceptionally dusty, especially with the aforementioned panels.

Other Thoughts: It's surprisingly roomy for a smallish mid tower. Originally crammed a Noctua D14 into it, and more recently fit an H110i GT as well.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible

Pros: This is simply a beautiful case. Easy to use. Fantastic air flow. QUIET. Stylish. Dust filters are awesome. I love how easy it is to take off the paneling and "open it up" during gaming sessions (although it's not necessary). If I needed another case, I would buy this one again without even thinking about it.

Cons: I can't think of any cons.

5 out of 5 eggsMoney Well Spent

Pros: Fantastic build quality. Dead silent. has a few awesome and mostly unique features like the push button side panel. I have very high end hardware in this case with about 10 total fans when you count case, video card, CPU and PS fans.... Would be hard to tell it was on at all if it didn't have a power light.

Cons: no REAL cons.

Other Thoughts: the front panel door isn't as great as advertised. It's NOT meant for someone who actually needs frequent front panel access (for media drives). The option to open the door from either side doesn't work well. it's nearly as likely that you will pull the door off as open one side. or you'll try to open from one direction and accidentally open from the other. It's more like a semi-hinging Tupperware lid than anything else. It's annoying if you have to open the door constantly. If you don't use DVD's on a regular basis then this case is flat out awesome. The company should have just put standard hinges on the door with a "push to open" latch like everyone else

4 out of 5 eggsGood quality, but slightly overpriced

Pros: Excellent space and noise suppression

Cons: Thin walls, easily transmit low frequency fan rumbles. Should be made of thicker aluminum. Black paint feels cheap. Cannot open/close front door with cables connected to front USB header.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice design

Pros: Roomy- it can handle a GTX580 with room to spare. Six slide-out drive trays with pins for 3.5" drives and holes for 2.5" drives. Clever front panel that can swing open in either direction. Adequate room for routing cables out of the way. Sound-dampening foam, including a cut-out that can cover the fan mounts on one side of the case. Runs very quiet with four active case fans.

Cons: The slide-out trays take a bit of getting used to, since they are flexible and can be tricky to remove when empty. The front panel comes off easily if you are not careful, especially when lifting it.

Other Thoughts: The panel that can cover the fan mounts on the side panel arrived with a couple of broken tabs. I did not remove an egg for three reasons: one- this seems more like a shipping problem than a quality issue. Two- I am not using the panel and therefore the problem does not affect my use of the case. Three- I am not returning the item over such a minor issue, and therefore it's unfair to dock an egg without giving them a chance to show how they'd deal with the return.

Other than that, it is roomy and clean and tool-less once you have the motherboard installed. Lots of foam and rubber is used to minimize noise from vibration, and it runs nice and quiet.
