Reviews

from completed build Tiny Tina 2.5

Looks beautiful coming out of the box. The front fan door is a bane in my existence. It's only held on by clasps, which one broke because the female end (attached to the case) would not catch because it was also broke. Very little cable management behind the tray. Only marginally more than the cheap $30 cases. SSD slots are in a retarded spot and should mimic the 750D as far as placement is concerned. Not enough USB 3.0 slots, but that's just how I feel for paying over $100 on the case. Minus the door, build quality is really solid. Noise levels are dampened, but that could be my setup using AF120s.

Easy case to install in and a lot of features

from completed build Ditch the damned iMac build

I'll say that I'm really happy with this case when all is said and done first and foremost. I am only using the one SSD as my system drive which is behind the MB, and I have an external HDD for media/files so I pulled out the drive tray altogether so it's full of room for good air flow.

couple things I'm not totally happy with but will likely get over quickly..

  • the push to release hinged thing on the front panel.. every.. fricking.. time.. I go to move the case at all, I accidentally pop it open on one or both sides. annoying, but not a deal breaker.

  • the window seems like an actual dust magnet, like, if I dropped tiny bits of sand from waist height about 2 ft away from this thing, I'm almost positive most of the grains will defy gravity and be pulled over to stick to the window!? it's like it's statically charged...

  • the finish on the front is nice, but seems to mark up really easily.

Put the cable behind is quite a feat lack of depth which makes it difficult to close the Panel

from completed build Client Build: Operation Blackbird

The Corsair 450D was mainly a cosmetic choice by the client, although I feel it offers a effective open air design for increased cooling potential, despite some lacking cable management support.

from completed build X1

Great case with everything a PC builder may need out of a computer case, but not enough space behind the mother board for wiring if the power supply isn't modular

The simple and elegant design was exactly what I was looking for. Cable minding is extremely simple with guide holes and plenty of tie down points for zip ties. Im really satisfied with the amount of space I had to work with. Fits every component without a problem.

from completed build Noodle PC

I love this case to pieces. It has a sleek, understated design which looks great in any room and with any desk and supports almost any configuration that you can imagine. For such a small case, this is great, as it allows you to create 3-way SLI/CrossFire configurations without taking up too much space in your room like the cumbersome Antec Twelve Hundred (the case the system was originally in) which has minimal support for liquid cooling and doesn't offer many features (although it's great if you like having 9 HDDs or 12 DVD drives...)) There are 3 places to put your radiator, top, bottom, or front; the bottom one is ruled out instantly if you want a psu over 1000 watts and a 240mm radiator however. Although there is a dedicated top mount, my radiator and fans are too thick to fit at the top so I've had to install the screws through the mesh grate instead. You can mount the hard drive cage to the bottom (default) or to the top under the 5.5" slots. Mounting them to the top is great if you have multiple cards as the front fan will give it enough air to stay cool (unless you cool your GPU with liquid). The SSDs are tucked away nicely around the back under the motherboard in cradles that make installation super easy and the same goes for the HDDs which simply slot into a cradle and slide in the rack. You can also install a second rack if you need more HDDs which you'll have to buy from elsewhere as you only get the one that comes with the case. Overall, the 450D is a great case, looks sleek, and will support almost any parts you throw at it. It's also ridiculously easy to build with.

from completed build Well Deserved Upgrade

I absolutely love the clean looks of this case. It was a pleasure to build in, with plenty of room for components and easy cable management. However, the 5.25 drive cages aren't removable so my tubes for the H110i GT are sort of trapped, and the side panels seem very flimsy and not up to par with the rest of the case.

What can I say, it has a big window, is mostly metal, and has enough space and mounting positions that I know to do with. Being that has so much space it allows me to keep everything very neat and with enough space between everything to maintain high airflow. And keeping everything tidy and cooling potential of the case was one of the most important aspects I was looking for when picking a case.
