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
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.
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.
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.
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.
wonderful looking case! good cable management and a nice window to complement it. very good airflow as Corsair had advertised
sleek, roomy, sexy
