great case very small form factor which is why i went with it. Trying to fit everything inside was tedious, need about half an inch more in the back for cables, I probably could have gone with the 570X for that little bit of extra room. Very easy to cut and bend parts inside. airflow doesn't seem to be an issue with or without the front panel. I actually get a greater temp difference by removing the top mesh of about 2-5c

Very pretty case with frugal cable management room behind the side panel, even so I got everything to fit nicely without bulging. In hindsight I should have got the non RGB version as without software control you only get a choice of 7 colours including white on the fans, also they are not PWM so they weren’t very suitable as my radiator fans.

Everything about the aesthetics of this case looks amazing in person. I've always liked mid-tower cases and this one is just slightly smaller that what I had previously in the 300R windowed.
Pros: -Tempered glass on front and side -Includes 3 RGB SP120's (Value) $80cad) -Basement Shroud cover -Sleek look -Pretty much can't add more than what everyone else has said
Cons: -Tight cable management but workable -Consider your cable routing before putting everything together, see Other for more details) -a bit pricey however the included RGB fans make it a good value
Other Thoughts: For anyone looking at getting this case, I would highly recommend it, I orginally was looking at the Phantek Enthoo equivelant but I liked having the front tempered glass as well, I also considered the 570X but I didn't like that the basement shroud left so much space on the right with the side of the shroud being completely open but I'm presuming that case was geared more for those that would install a custom loop.
Anyway, just wanted to point out a few key points regarding the cable management. It's not as bad as some have mentioned however you do have to plan in advance. For my build I'm using a Asus Crosshair Hero VI and like may other boards the HD audio connector is on the bottom left of the board, also there is one fan header connector right beside it that I use for my fans.
There is a very small gap between the mother board and the case that allows the HD Audio cable and my fan cable to pass through barely, however this should be done before installing the power supply and basement shroud is installed. I will post some links to some images to see what I'm talking about, it really is a tight fit especially when you install the basement shroud the cables can be slightly pinched depending on its diameter.

Also I think if you are building in case like this, it makes a huge difference if you use a fully Modular PSU or at least Semi. Sleeved cables will also help as they are more flexible that the typical plastic ones that come with most PSU's. Currently I'm using a EVGA 650w GS and both the power supply 24pin cable and 8 pin cable is just a tad short, there isn't much slack to cable manage those 2 cables. I don't have a picture but instead of routing it neatly following a path, the 8 pin cable has to come across the back on an angle. (I'll post some pics later). Not a huge deal but kind of a drag if you are finnicky about cable management. I plan on getting some custom sleeves anyway so this will work for now.
Anyway, I hope the pics help you to be more aware of the slight limitation, there is a workaround but again do it before installing the PSU!

Just what I wanted as far as size, lighting, and tempered glass. The 570X was too large, plus even with cable management I didn't want to be seeing the rear of the motherboard tray anyway. I did have to remove the case feet and add lower-profile rubber ones instead in order to reduce the height enough to fit it in the desk, but it all worked out. Do plan to invest some serious time in cable management if you get this case, but it is worth it when you do, IMHO.

Great case, Corsair puts some thought into planning for wiring and drive placement. The tempered glass is a nice look. Only gripe is the length of the screws to remove the front panel. Other than that, great case!

Definitely an awesome case, but 120$ is a steep price, even considering the RGB fans. the sticker on one of the fans is slightly off center and creates a wobbling effect when the fan is spinning.

After 10+ hours of building in this case, I have a result I'm proud of. But there isn't much room in the back for cables. The hole intended for routing GPU/PCI-E from the PSU is way to far left for full length cards such as mine. Love the tempered glass. Can't figure out how to get the LEDs to breathe different colors without flashing.

This case has a love and hate relationship with many people. The case is gorgeous and Corsair did a great job boxing this case up to make sure it's not damaged. The tempered glass comes with plastic covering it from scratches, definitely a fingerprint magnet. Like I said the case is beautiful and a wonder to look at, but building in it can be quite a challenge. Get yourself a modular PSU to make things as easy as you can for yourself. Trying to cram all the cables in the right side of the case is near impossible, they give you no room between the panel and the bottom-mid section of the case to close that panel. I ended up cramming the extra cable lengths into whatever hole I could find, I had to detach the SSD rack (even then, mine unfortunately still has a slight bulge at the bottom of the panel near where the PSU cables come out from the shroud). Once you get it working, the aesthetics are in my mind totally worth it. This case comes with 3 RGB controllable fans with controller but no powered fan hub to actually power the fans... what?! Luckily my mATX board had enough fan headers to install all 4 of my fans on it, love that mobo!
