Good case, nice clean build. Seems very flexible for AIO water cooling if that was useful in the future. Strange placement of SSD drives-can mount them visible or on the cable management side tucked out of the way but works good both ways. HDD bays cage is removable to make for lots of space. Corsair logo on the front is just small enough to cover with an Intel processor case badge for an extremely generic but sharp look. I'd use it again.

This case is easy to work with. Has 2 HDD mounts and 2 SSD mounts, front is easy to pull off and there is a nice pop out in the back for some cable management including a large indention in the front right of the case on the back panel for the SSDs and maybe cables. Also comes with a nice window for the budget price. Would recommend.

Better in person than it looked online - and it looked pretty good! Very impressed with this case in both looks and value for $.

2 quick things

You case only comes with 1x 120mm fan, so add 2x more 120mm in the front at least or things will get toasty.

Install your DVD drive with the front of the case on, it will not fit over if the drive is in already.

Build Quality is a little cheap for my liking (frame is really thin) but you get what you pay for and due to these reductions the features are excellent, just be careful not to scratch the case as its easy to do, the tinted window is really nice.

Good case, although the motherboard standoffs are kinda cheap and get stuck when you try to unscrew the motherboard, which causes the standoff and the screw to come up with the motherboard.

Overall, decent build quality, would recommend for around $40-50.

Everything I could ask for in a case, and fit everything like charm. Only thing is that you most put in the I/O panel before the mobo.

I love the size, but the quality isn't the best. There isn't much room in the back for cable management. The side window scratches very easily.

Fits a 240mm radiator, a bay-mounted reservoir, a 170mm power supply (as long as flat cables are used), and both 2.5" and 3.5" hard drives. Should fit an SLI setup as well. Well designed given its size and weight. However, keep in mind that the front intake looks highly restrictive, and the power button feels terrible. Consider Carbide Spec M2 if good front intake is needed.

Perfect budget case. Side panel window, front panel USB 3.0, and space for cables. Hard drive bay is also modular.
