To get the CCP to fit and the SSD, I had to remove the SSD bracket. I then mounted the CCP with the included adhesive back, and mounted the SSD with velcro mounting tape. Everything is running fine, and I could probably fit another SSD between my two HDDs if I really wanted.
Overall it is a really nice and compact little beauty. It is a little loud though, but that may be due to the LL120 fans I have. I got this case over the crystal 570x because that thing has 5 tempered glass panels... Screw that, I'm nervous enough with just two. Not to mention fingerprints. If anyone has any questions I will try to get back to you.
The glass is thick and overall the case is of very high quality and sturdy. I have 6x120mm fans and I'm using the hdd cage with 1 drive in it so I can hide some cables underneath. There's also 3x2.5" trays in the back that do not require additional hardware to mount drives.
There's 2 magnetic screens, one on top which can be removed at any time and one in front which you have to remove the 4 thumb screws and remove the glass and plastic frame to get to. If anything it could use a screen on the back but I suppose since most air goes out that back it's not necessary. Also the one on top seems to restrict air flow a noticeable amount, I noticed that the 2 fans blowing air out on top run 3-400rpm faster with it removed. It may cause extra stress on fan motors and cause premature failure.
Overall beautiful case, will more than likely never need to upgrade as nothing compares to this work of art. It's modular with thumb screws everywhere for tool free adjustments and the pci tray covers are replaceable for if you change card size. Colors are controllable from 3 buttons on top. Highly Recommend.
Warning: if you buy a large liquid cooler (with 2 air fans) you may not have room for the RAM, and the fan could block access to a couple of plugs on the motherboard. I have a MSI X470 motherboard. Corsair Dominator RAM won't fit unless I move one of the fans off the radiator.
Update: With the fan that comes with the 2700X Ryzen 7 chip, the front fans built into the case, we installed a couple of 120mm corsair fans - one on above the chip and one on the back vent blowing out - and the computer runs consistently between 30-40C , so now we know we don't even need a liquid cooler!
There's a couple of plastic covers that cover the power supply and hard-drive bays - I'm not sure that they're necessary - it's hard to get them back in the case because it requires more wire-bending and stress on the power cables going into the back of the power supply. We just took out the covers and let the wires relax.
The fans that come installed are surprisingly quiet. They only have three pins, where the motherboard has four. Just refer to your motherboard manual for the pin that you need to exclude. You won’t need pin #4, but it’s in different places on different motherboards. The fact that it only has three pins isn’t a huge issue. That extra pin just helps with some speed control.
My only issue is that the black paint on the screws tend to come off pretty easily. I used a screwdriver to remove the screws on the glass side panel, and in turn ended up chipping it and taking off some of the pain. I also wish the solid back door was a little deeper. It was a little hard to get it closed with the motherboard power cable and SATA cables there. It was a tight fit, and the door does bulge a little, but it closes.
Other things that I really like about this case are the PSU cover. It’s nice that you can hide all of the cables. It’s also cool that you can control the color and modes of the fans with the buttons on the front of the case. However, there was no documentation about what the different modes are, so you’ll need to play around with that.

Don't get me wrong the look of it is great - the quality so so, but whats inside is just beyond the joke.
Very nice feel, good front airflow and very quiet case. I think the price tag is for Glass only. The case in General looks very good while all setup.
That's where the drama begins. First most noticable part inside is the PSU cover - very cheap plastic which has a cut out for the cables and it's easy scratched with any cables. Very poor material. I don't understand what that supposed to be, it does not look nice, it's nightmare to remove and put it back. Running cables through the cutout is simply painfull then the whole plastic fits very tightly under your motherboard so plugging anything like USB3 it's just pure nightmare.
SSD drives - you install them behind the metal panel where you cable management is - this is such a weird place to put your drives when you need to connect power and sata cables + when you have single power cable with multiple power sockets it's alomost impossible to connect 2 SSD drives on single cable (I used modular PSU by Corsair ). Next part is your PSU - when you build it make sure to plug more cables than you need - I had to add another GPU cable and I had to remove almost everything starting from this horrendous plastic PSU cover. To remove it you have to unplut all your cables like PCIe, USB, and whatever plugs in to the bottom of your MBO before you can even remove the plastic. Simply stupid idea!!! Comparing this Case to any NZXT this case looks like it was designed by complete novice in that field. I understand that it maybe has better airflow but why on earth would you put that dodgy plastic cover that blocks acces to all cables - it supposed to hide them yes I know that but 3 screws to secure it and it does not even cover next genious part which is regular hard drive case - whihc is removable for some unknown reason. Simply shambolic design and if you like to spend countless hours swearing on this case go ahead and buy it. I have built maybe 300 machines and this case suprosed me all the way. Ah yes if you want to remove the glass panels with your fingers then better go and get screwdriver and makes sure it is plastic one otherwise you will scratch the screws that suppose to be decorative.
Parto con i pro:
-materiali di alta qualità
-un po' più grosso dei case standard (tipo pre-assemblati) ma allo stesso tempo più piccolo che i giganteschi case che puntano a chi assembla da solo pc
-pieno di gancetti con i cui gestire i cavi
-imballato molto bene
-il filtro anteriore e in basso sembrano molto comodi
-Per qualche perverso motivo non è possibile spegnere le luci delle ventole, non c'è alcun motivo per cui non ci possa essere un preset fra quelli disponibili con le luci spente
-Le ventole non girano alla velocità che dovrebbero, effettivamente nell'annuncio non viene specificata la velocità massima delle ventole tuttavia viene indicato che sono le sp 120 rgb di corsair, dalla loro pagina dichiarano che le ventole possano arrivare a 2350 rpm, io anche impostandole dal bios a velocità massima non superano i 1500 rpm (rilevato con hw monitor, e dal bios della scheda madre)
-I cavi delle ventole preinstallati sembrano un groviglio di spaghetti, alla fine ho tagliato tutte le fascette e li ho risistemati da capo, ci sono così tante opzioni per passare i cavi in modo ordinato che sospwtto si siano impegnati a montarli così male
-non è possibile controllare i led delle ventole dalla scheda madre(mobo), visto lo "scatolotto" incluso mi sarei aspettato di potermi connettere a una presa rgb della mobo e poter controllare tutto di li
-lo scatolotto inlcuso gestisce solamente i led, non è un problema di per se ma se questo scatolotto avesse avuto la possibilità di ricevere da una presa per le ventole della mobo si sarebbe potuto evitare di usare 3 diversi attacchi per le ventole sulla mobo, Facendo invece in questo modo ogni ventola deve essere connessa ad una diversa presa e se come me sulla mobo avete solamente 3 prese per le ventole vi troverete a dover usare degli splitter (che fanno in modo che la velocità effettiva delle ventole sia letta male) se volete mettere anche una o più ventole per fare uscire l'aria
-non prevede ventole di uscita almeno una 120 in uscita sarebbe stata gradita, visto che corsair produce anche normalissime ventole nere economiche. la configurazione "di fabbrica" ha senso fino ad un certo punto, l'ultima ventola in basso si trova praticamente attaccata al porta dischi rigidi e da aria praticamente solo a loro cosa abbastanza inutile visto che di per se un disco rigido non diventerà mai spaventosamente caldo
-lo spazio dietro alla scheda madre è sorprendentemente limitato, non capisco bene come mai abbiano lasciato così poco spazio per i cavi dietro alla scheda madre, il case è abbastanza largo (nel mio caso ci saranno 5 cm di spazio fra la scheda grafica e il vetro, avrei gradito avessero lasciato più spazio dietro e meno davanti, il cavo dell'alimentatore che va alla scheda madre sta a mala pena nello spazio dietro, per quanto siano tanti i gancetti a cui attaccare i cavi a causa della poca profondità è abbastanza impegnativo fare un lavoro pulito, io ho usato un alimentatore semi-modulare, auguro buona fortuna a chi decida di usarne uno non modulare (non che non sia fattibile ma richiederà un po' di tempo)
-ci sono un po' di vibrazioni, in particolare il cassettino degli hard disk vibra causando un po' di rumore, quando inizialmente ho usato un solo hhd non lo ho notato, da quando ho installato il secondo lo si nota, prossimamente provvederò a rismontarlo e vedere se riesco a bloccarlo in modo più saldo così che non vibri
-il filtro superiore per quanto sembri un idea geniale è molto fitto e limita parecchio il flusso d'aria sopratutto nella configurazione 3 ventole in ingresso e nulla in uscita, quando faccio qualsiasi cosa che metta un po' di carico sul pc mi alzo per togliere questo filtro e far prendere un po' più di aria al computer
- il telaio flette un pochino, nulla di tremendo ma spostando il pc senza pannello di verto quando vi troverete a rimettere il vetro noterete che il telaio si è storto un pochino (non me ne preoccuperei molto ma mi sembrava importante includerlo)
- è relativamente rumoroso, ma del resto è un case di vetro tutto aperto, nessuno si aspetta che sia un case silenzioso, a seconda di cosa ci montate fa più o meno casino, insomma non maschera niente il case, io lo ho a 1 metro e mezzo altezza viso da me e fa 40 decibel che è relativamente buono
Di per se un ottimo case, lo consiglio vivamente ma vi suggerisco di prendere quello senza ventole e aggiungerle voi, ha molto più senso sia come prezzo che come configurazione finale del pc.
Per completezza includo cosa ho montato
-mobo gigabyte b450 aorus elite
-CPU ryzen 5 2600x con cooleer compreso 70 gradi al massimo sotto carico
-GPU saphire nitro+ rx 570 8gb 65 gradi al massimo sotto carico
-RAM 2x8gb vegnance lpx 3000 MHz
-PSU corsair tx650w 80g semimodulare
-2 hhd 1 da 5400 rpm 1 da 5400 e 1 da 7000 27 e 29 gradi
-1 ssd mvme 40 gradi
I only have 3 issues with the case. Firstly, the room for cable management at the back is poor. My 24pin power cable is causing the back of the case to pop out slightly. Secondly Corsair have added a section whereby you need to insert a long thin screwdriver to remove the screws holding in GPUs/PCI extension slots.. Something that I didn't have! Finally the 3.5inch drive bay is crap - it is easy to remove and this can cause issues when pushing in a new drive. The bay is also visible even with the cover on! I plan on removing this soon.
All in all, I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a tempered glass RGB case - I picked it over the 570x because it seemed like overkill.. surely nobody wants to see the cabled section.
I have recently moved some stuff in the case. The 3.5" tray can be moved so it is not in view. Although there is less room for cables coming from the PSU so I would only recommend doing this is you have a modular unit. It can also be screwed into place so it is not loose.
Decent cable work does need some thought and planning, but is easily acomplished with patience. I plan on putting a full custom loop into this at some point as there is room for it, but just like the cables, it will require thought and patience as things can be tight.
The one thing I will admit to changing, is I have removed the HDD cage and replaced it with a silent ghetto HDD enclosure (a lump of hard foam trimmed into shape) because my HDD vibrates terribly and the sound resinates through the case, but this was also apparent in my old case so I cannot fully claim it to be the cases fault.
I have never written a "review" before(if thats what you can call it) but decided to for this as I am that impressed with it and would reccomend to people who know what to expect, which is a COMPACT full ATX case that looks great and functions just as good as it looks.
I got it for a decent price from Amazon Warehouse Deals too, which made it all the more sweeter.
Now I'm not a professional reviewer and I have not built countless PCs but perhaps more than a dozen and this is the finest I've ever built; if you wanted a NZXT-style case with better build (and front glass) this seems to be it.
Yes, put the PSU in first - I have a X299 system so a 1200W long EVGA PSU had to fit - thus best to be done first.
If you don't use any 3.5" HDDs then just don't mount the HDD cage for better airflow; to be honest I am not a fan of the back 2.5" mounts for SSDs perhaps just use on-board PCIe/NVMe SSD on the mainboard - with heatsink - and be done with the whole mounts.
As mentioned I think the RGB version with 3 non PWM fans is not worth it for a modern build - you likely have a mainboard supporting PWM which is superior to voltage control - myself I got the RGB ML PWM fans (also Corsair). Not to mention the 3-button colour/speed/etc. controller does not have dedicated buttons on the case but needs to be "tucked in".
So budget for 4 PWM LED fans (RGB or single colour) and re-purpose or sell the included fans.
I should mention that my version was probably assembled by a "rogue employee" that jammed the HDD cage at an angle (see pic) which is not great show for quality control - it was visible from the outside. Thankfully no harm done, it could be straightened out. Corsair - are you not paying those people enough or are they not trained enough???
Still I feed I could not have chosen for the price better - yes perhaps the similar price NZXT, SilverStone, Phanteks, etc. are similarly good - but I definitely know this is good.
