Pros: 280mm and 360mm rad suppurt, split design, not having to see the bunch of cables you would normally by having the PSU visible

Cons: Vertical 5.25 bays, only two 3.5 HDD cases, 2.5 HDD cages are directly behind the motherboard

Personally I love the case because I've never liked the idea of seeing the power-supply itself.
The ability to do a 240 or 280 mm rad at the top and 360 or 280 at the front of the case is great, but I feel they should have done something with the bottom of the case instead of placing the two 3.5 HDD bays there. I really dislike having the 3.5 HDD at the bottom of the case and I really feel as if Corsair could have spent a little more time a placed them at the rear of the case.
I wasn't worried about only having the front portion of the case filtered as that is typically the only place I do have intake fans.
This case is fairly easy to take apart and modify (or clean the dust off from when considering you can take off the grills that get dust on them at the top and front of the case).
I purchased this case after deciding that the Corsair 500r just wasn't right for me.
Unless I'm able to find the right m-atx and CPU combo I'll be sticking with the 540 for quite awhile.
