Small size but all the space you need to do pretty much anything but SLI...I would love one day to have a system with a 240mm radiator for my i7 and a 120mm radiator for my GPU...this case is pretty and even with my air build it keeps everything neat and clean.
Love this case.
The air filters are the best.
Removable optical disk bay is a plus for added space. Eventually I hope to mount a fan controller in this space.
I love the positioning of everything in the case. Very happy.
I had to glue pads back on a couple of the feet after a while.
Included 120mm side mounted fan has begun making some noise only after 17 months. It does run at full speed all the time however and is the only exhaust fan at this point in time. So I guess I can't fault it.
I absolutely love the Corsair 250D. It's a sexy, minimalist case that is built for a water cooled mITX rig. The fan filters were a MUST and these are easily removable. My case is set up with all fans as intake and exhaust is passive. This insures that I have a positive pressure case and that no dust or hair is sucked in through an area where there isn't a filter.
One of the better Cases for mini ITX I've seen in recent years. Stands a little tall but not much more than your market standard ITX case. Excellent use of fans and space. Just enough room for cable management. Maybe could afford an inch or two here or there but may be asking too much out of an ITX case. This thing can hold full ATX PSUs, almost 12 inch long GPUs (although be aware of height restrictions for those classified cards.) and has enough room for 2 SSDs and 2 HDDs. Perfect example of small form factor casing at its best
A really good case.
Mostly comes apart with no tools, although it would be good to have made the 5 1/2" drive bay removable without a screw driver.
Easy to build in.
Get a modular PSU to avoid cable clutter.
Lots of airflow.
3 possible case fans.
Front USB ports upside down.
Power light way too bright!!!
Great case, fits everything I need, a bit bigger than I expected but that's not a problem. The build quality is great, feels solid and nice.
I like small and compact technology. In my mind, technology is sized related: the smaller it is, the more advanced. It's arbitrary, but that's also the inspiration behind a lot of science innovation: make it better, make it simpler, more it more efficient. And, if you've ever moved more than once in your life, you appreciate that less lifting is more happiness. I also prefer the absence of clutter in my home, and having a build that tucks away and is unobtrusive is attractive for interior design.
Without a doubt, a case tower gives you ample room for working in, managing cables, and allowing for air passage and any sized third-party CPU cooler. Since I wasn't going for the biggest, baddest, beast out there, I compact size while maintaining good airflow, dust-control, and potential for future upgrades. What tipped the scales in favour of the 250D were the built-in magnetic-attached dust filters (front intake, both side intakes, and the PSU intake on the bottom), ability to handle any sized ATX PSU, full-sized GPU, and how well it was built.
Overall, it's a very solid, well-machined case, and has been very easy to work with. Quality costs something, and I was lucky enough to get this at a 25% discount.
It's a fairly roomy Mini ITX Tower, which is nice to build in, but kind of stinks because its actually fairly large for being a Mini ITX case.
Problems: the first time i tried to get off the power button side, side panel it was a pain in the ***. It felt like it had been welded to the rest of case.
The front panel air filter has cheap plastic clips, the left one of mine broke already :(
I don't really care for the power/reset button. I like seeing the power symbol and this case doesn't have one.
Back on the positive side, this case is very well built, looks nice, and is easy to build a Mini-ITX PC.
This is a great small case. I've jammed a lot in there and it let me reuse my full size ATX PSU. Pretty happy with it, may add some custom graphics. I wish it came in white.
