I had to knock the ease of installation down one star because of the sheer weight and size of the case when trying to navigate around the case to get your wiring done correctly. This isn't a case you can lay down and get everything done. You need to be able to move around the case and get to things easily from all angles. I would suggest having a nice table in the center of a room so you can move around. You will get very tired of heaving this case around if you don't start off on a table or workbench.
The space and ease of routing cables inside this case is a dream. The use of the grommets to hide your cabling really puts this case in a class of its own. Although other case makers (ie. NZXT) have started to use similar grommets, their implementation is nowhere near as good as Corsair (ie. grommets come out easy and create more of a pain than they should). The only real issue I have is that the motherboard tray could have been moved maybe a half an inch forward to allow more space for cable routing behind the tray. With the sheer amount of cables I have hidden behind the tray, it took awhile to get things zip-tied in a way that would prevent the rear panel from flexing. The inclusion of the CPU power cable extender was a very nice touch, as I can almost guarantee that everyone will need to use it to reach where you need to.Read more ›
Updated on 2/9/2012 -- I have owned this case for almost three months now. I want to write a follow up. As it turns out, I have been having problems with the SATA-III hotswap backplate in my case. I have all 4 bays filled, two of which contain SSDs, and the other two contain two 3TB Hitachi 6G HDDs. The backplate occassionally drops one of my hard drives. Unplugging and re-plugging it in will bring it back online. This problem almost always occurs after a cold boot or wake up from sleep mode. I tried replacing the cable just to rule it out. Then I saw in Corsair's forum that many people are having this problem. It is a known issue. I am in the process of applying for an RMA.
Original Review (original rating = 4 stars):
(1) The biggest selling point for me is the ability to mount the double radiator of the Corsair CWCH100 Liquid cooler underneath the top of the case. It fits perfectly. In fact, you can even mount a triple radiator there if you so desire. Additionally, it looks like that there is enough height clearance to use two sets of fans for a push-pull configuration, even though I didn't do that.Read more ›
Some things to consider with this case before you buy though:
- Does not have a USB 3.0 20-pin connection for the front USB 3.0 port. You have to use a connection from the back of the motherboard for it.
- The PCI slot covers are not vented for those wanting passive cooling from them without leaving them completely open, so I purchased some Silvestone covers that have vents for $10.
- If you want decent air cooling in this case, you need a lot of fans. It could cost an extra $100 in fans alone.
- If you use the fans the way Corsair tells you to (everything being exhaust except the bottom fan) expect a lot of dust in your system from creating a lot of negative air pressure and air being sucked in from every nook and cranny of the case. Go positive and add fan filters imo.
- Cable management behind the case can get tight since there's not enough space allowed between the back of the motherboard and the side of the case.Read more ›

Way big, weights a lot and lots of space. Should include cables long enough though, and needs a lot of fans to cool it.Published on November 20, 2013 by Cranespud
