Pros: Great Looks and Cooling. Amazing cable managment. Really digging the leds and fan controls

Cons: None so far

So I went to go get my laptop repaired at compusa and I noticed this case. I really wanted it but the price tag was 130. Just then a tech went over and put a sign( Holiday BlowOut Sale! 500R $69.99). There was only 3 left in the store and at that price I had to get it. When I got home I opened it up. 1st thing I noticed was that the packaging it comes in is really great for my case was 100% new and no flaws. When I put my rig into it I was amazed at how nice it looked and the cables looked great. The side panels have this lump that allows alot of cables to be shoved there for amazing cable managment. Also the front fans move good cfm and look great. Will post pictures in my gallery when I get my new camera for christmas:)
Thanks

Pros: easy access, good airflow , looks good

Cons: flimsly built , will lose upper three drive bays with large video cards

overall decent case but has some negative features that if I had seen the case in person first I probably would not have bought it

PROS:
quick connect hard drive bays
good air flow
comes with four of the seven fans
has fan speed control on case as well as led on off switch
front usb 3.0 and plenty long enough cables
easy to mount multiple radiators
Nice finish ( I got the charcoal grey )
bought it when it was on sale

CONS:
small feet don't raise the case high enough off floor to get airflow to bottom of the case for PSU unless you put it on a hard floor but carpet is out of the question

case is to short to handle larger video cards (mine are 13.25" long) you have to remove the upper three hard drive bays -- very disappointing!!

quilty was not what I expected for a name like corsair seems flimsily built you can feel the door bend when you try to open.
