Corsair need better quality control as I needed to fix a couple of things but nothing the realest of real -HH-'s can't deal with! Superb none the less.
Very Impressed with this case. Tons of cable management options and easy access to everything
I like the size of the case but the following things stood out and kind of annoyed me.
PCI express thumb screw is very difficult to fit in once a big graphics card is inserted, there isn't much of a gap and even with the tool provided its very difficult to get the screw in place and fastened.
the front of the case. When you have a CD/DVD or fan controller, it isn't flush with the front panel and makes the drives and controller seem out of place slightly ruining the aesthetics
The good thing is
It is big
It is sturdy
It has some great features
It will allow for some great custom water loops
This case is very easy to work in, it's got 1 1/8 worth of cable management space, but its functionality is lacking. Airflow was a miss IMO, and the expansion slot screws are a ***** to get at with GPU's installed. It's also heavy too. And when I bought it, it was USD $299.99, so I can let it slide. But I can't give it enough respect because its functionality is something left to be desired.
With airflow in mind, you can make the argument that it's more of a watercooling case. That's correct, but for either air or liquid cooling, the heat exchangers love cool air, therefore keeping temps lower with nice airflow through your case.
Note to PCPP Staff: Any case that supports an EATX motherboard can therefore support SSI CEB motherboards without any modifications made to the case whatsoever. Such motherboards like the Asus X99-E-10G WS motherboard can easily fit into this case. Some cases like this one can easily fit an SSI EEB motherboard. Can you please correct this issue. Much appreciated :)
It's a great case, lots of room for whatever you have in mind. worked great for watercooling with the massive set up that I have in it. y major quirk with this case is the screws for attaching the video cards and any other cards you may have - the frame on the windowed side comes out about 2 inches. making it extremely difficult to get the screws back in, they give you a special 90 degree screwdriver/allan key type deal to deal with this. But still quite difficult ot get in there.
