    The side bevel is nice for cable management

    I love this case, it looks good with its red frontal fan and side window.

    I got it for $30 before taxes.

    Worked on this case before and I loved the level of quality on it along with ample room for cable management. Even with using a non modular PSU, I was able to hide every cable behind the backpanel.

    A 'budget' case (cheap I guess) is the description I saw most often used for this case, but I like the airflow and the industrial look.

    I fell in love with the industrial and sturdy look. Side panels are rock solid (or steel solid), nice window and 2 fans (one obviously has a red led) both of which uses 3 pin connectors.

    Cable management was… an ok first build experience. Bad that there wasn't that much options for proper cable placements and places to tie them down but good thing that Corsair knew how to fix this problem - a big side panel. But truthfully it wasn't so bad but I have a semi modular PSU so that might be why.

    And yeah, the reviews are right about the dust filers not being great. Good if you want a bit better airflow with the mesh holes being quite big but bad for effectively catching dust.

    USB ports are upside down and I'm honestly quite annoyed about it. Who thought it was a good idea?

    It's a nice lower end mid-budget case. It is advertised to come with front dust filters but mine did not; only had the coarse mesh attached to the front grille. Also the thumb screws used to hold the side panels to the case can be difficult to align since there is a gap between the panel and case holes. The side panel protrusions are nice in helping with the cable management but felt that the internal wall should be moved about 1/4" inwards as I felt a few cables resisting when reattaching the panel. Since a specific CPU_PWR punch out was provided; motherboard mounting should be moved 1/4" to 1/2" downwards; due to cable routing I could not mount a fan using the rear mounts on the top panel. There were a total of 10 screws holding the HDD/SSD drive cage in place; seems a little excessive. The quick release for holding down the different drive bays were nice though. This case does not come with grommets for the cable management cutouts and Corsair does not sell them as additional accessories on their website. The case is elevated about an inch with four plastic feet so power supply can take in external air.

    Love the looks of this case, but it is a little tight. It barely fit my CM Hyper 212 Evo cooler. Other than that it has everything that I needed with good space for cable management. The build material feels solid and the side window let's you admire your creation!

    Pros: The case is a little on the cheap side, depends on the price you get if <$60 I say its worth it, but not over, just save $20 or $30 more and get a better case.

    Its got good airflow with space for 140mm fans in the front, altouth getting 140mm there would be a bit of a pain cause of the space but its doable.

    Its a decent size so it can fit a CM Hyper 212 Evo with a couple mms to spare.

    Has dedicated SSD slot (but you need some force to set the ssd in)

    Has a good size back plate cut out and cable management cut outs

    Will fit very large graphic cards and psu

    Supports 120mm fan in the bottom (if your psu is small)

    Subjective, but I think it looks cool

    Has a windows to show ur work of art :)

    Cons: First you have to make sure to route the CPU power cable BEFORE setting the mobo or it wont fit. The cut out is too small for the connector to fit, so pass it before you screw the mobo in place. Once there you can pull the cable though is a little tight.

    Also I recommend you plug the cable right there and then, otherwise you might have a hard time trying to plug it specially if you have a big air cooler like I do.

    The "air filters" are useless, their are more like a mesh with really big holes. I live in texas which is kinda a desert so there's a lot of dirty in the air, I have only around 3weeks with this build and I can already see dust inside it!! but with 2 fans pulling intake I guess that was bound to happen.

    Also these filters are a pain to remove. The one on the top is not realistic if you install fans or a radiator since you will have to remove them to get the "filter" off. The one of the front is easy enough bur you need to take off the whole front. The once on the bottom for the psu is also a pain to remove. I suggest you do it with the system off and cables unplugged so you can till it more easily.

    Before buying the case I saw reviews complaining that the paint comes off very easily its true. You can see this if your not careful with ur screw driver or while installing the psu.

    Also there are no grommets for the cut out holes for cable management, not a big deal but worth mentioning.

    This might not really be a con but, the windows is kinda big, consider this before getting it.

    I tried to hide my PSU cables but since the space on the side panel for cable management is not very big, hiding all the cables is not easy you will see them cause the big windows doesn't cover not even the hard drive cages.

    Other Thoughts: Overall I think the case is good looking and has an attractive price, but is kind of a pain to work with and wont help keeping ur system clean, if this is not a deal breaker I say go get it.

    I love it! It looks clean and it's not too big and it has a nice window to check out all the parts in it! Very good cable management and lots of room. Keeps everything nice and cool. I switched out the red fans for 4 blue led fans and wow it just looks amazing!

    from completed build Black & Red MSI For Gaming

    Great case. Docked a star due to the standoffs are too high. Depending on your mobo you will struggle. I had the hardest time with an Asus H87 mobo but had no issues with a MSI Z97 mobo. With the H87 I had NO SPACE to mount exhaust fans on the top. Everything was a very tight fit. But with the MSI Z97 Gaming 5 I had space to mount top fans and actually with more room for other stuff like routing my CPU power connector. Other than that, the window isn't that large compared to many other cases out. But for around $55 the case is a good window case. Cable management isn't great but it isn't horrible either lol. I wasn't using the 2x 5.5' bays so I put my fan controller in there and ran all fan cables to there. And the rest, well go look at my pics and see lol
