Pros: -Tempered glass panels look nice and remove easy enough
-Lots of space in the back.
-Corsair high quality
Cons: -Lack of meaningful airflow
-Non removable dust filters
-Dimensions are a little funny and don't allow for large GPU'S
-Tempered glass panels while nice looking restrict airflow
-Lacks nice little touches that make cable management in the back easy.
-Expensive for what you get.
Overall Review: I had this case for exactly a year. Initially I was pleased with the build quality. Corsair is always high quality especially when it comes to their cases. The case looks nice but in this case its more form over function. The lack of meaningful airflow lead to higher system temperatures across the board. While the glass panels remove easily enough, taking them off to improve airflow kind of negates the point of having them in the first place. The case is decent to build in but lacks the nice little touches in the back cable management area that you see from so many other manufacturers. Cleaning the filters was a nightmare because you have to dismantle half the case to get front panel off to get to the dust filter.
It's a mid ATX case, so if you're looking for something that will support longer GPU's this case simply isn't it. The included corsair LL120 fans are nice looking, but having the plug them all into the node pro makes for a mess in the back. Corsair needs to refresh their ecosystem because the cable management is simply a nightmare. Corsair like I said is high quality but their pricing is crazy. For the less money you can get a much nicer case with better airflow and room for more.
Pros: -Super spacious
-Lots of build options
-Room for (almost) any setup
-Phanteks quality is quite simply some of the best
-Integrated fan hub
-Built in RGB
Cons: -Lack of front and top radiator trays
-Can only accommodate rads that support 120mm fans if you have a beefier Mobo in the top
Overall Review: Overall I'd say this case is phenomenal. There is plenty of space in the back for cable management. If you want to do the dual system setup you have the real estate to do so. There is lots of room in the beast and plenty of options. The integrated fan hub was a very welcome addition as I put 12 RGB fans in this case. I would recommend this case to anyone looking for something that will last them years to come. My only complaint is that I didn't have the space in the top for my 280mm NZXT rad. I had to suffice and use my older smaller form factor Noctua cooler but honestly its more of my error as I didn't research it thoroughly enough. 5 Egg.
Pros: You can daisy chain them together so you only need one RGB header. They work with pretty much every onboard RGB controller MSI, ASUS, ASrock etc. They move a ton of air and really aren't that loud.
Cons: The only con I can honestly list is the fan screws that were included. They aren't quite wide enough at the head and almost pulled through the case so be extremely careful you don't over tighten and pull them through.
Overall Review: These are awesome RGB fans that move a ton of air. They were easy to install with the daisy chain and the included splitter for the PWM is a fantastic inclusion in the box. I don't have much bad to say about these fans. The price for what you get you simply cant beat. They are awesome!
Pros: 3 m.2, plenty of USB, LOTS of fan headers and plenty of RGB headers.
Cons: Optional Dragon Center software suite is complete garbage.
Overall Review: Easy to use and quick to setup with plenty of features. BIOS is easy to navigate. Clear CMOS and BIOS flash on I/O pretty neat. Included WiFi antennana also pretty cool. In my opinion it's one of the nicest looking x570 boards.
Pros: Smaller form factor
Cons: None so far
Pros: Coming from a 1080p... This monitor is drop dead gorgeous
Tried all of my AAA titles, refresh rate is just fine at 60
No dead pixels
Plug and play
Cons: The volume control is going to get to be a pain.
Everything is on the joystick in the bottom center of display, going to take adjusting to.
Pros: RGB lighting is a nice touch without being over powering. Worked out the box with no hiccups whatsoever. Corsair RGB Vengeance Pro worked with changing the xmp profile first try.
I've had nothing but good luck with ASRock and will continue to use their products in the future.
Pros: Cable management made easy for a midsize ATX. This case was fun to build in. For the price you can't really beat this one.
