Pros: Solid, Great Cooling Options, Plenty of Space, Cable Management, View-able Side, Easy Side Panel Removal, Great Finish.

Cons: Somewhat Heavy, plastic cable management and hard drive mounts, power button and USB placement (front panel)

I bought this from Micro Center in Ohio.

I like the finish of the case the sturdy feel of the metal is a nice feature.

Can fit a Corsair H110 inside above the motherboard, a Push-Pull config may require 2 fans to be on outer top of the case. (not a huge deal)

Lots of fan options 120 and 140mm for any fan location,

can fit another radiator next to drive bays, (for a custom loop) stock fans not the best BUT get the job done.

little sound damping so can be a little on the humming side (not LOUD but noticeable in a quite room)

Look at my build log for some pics of the set up with a RIVE and H110

has filters on the bottom for the PS fan and an added fan.

Really the button for the power button is an odd placement, the fact that its in the front has made me bump it once so far and shut down in the middle of a game frown.gif

the usb ports are odd in the front (3.0) but I rarely use them But if the tower is close to your leg that could be an issue if you have things sticking out of it.

over all I do recommend this though, has great cooling ability.

Pros: Cable Management! Bad@$$ looks. Reasonably priced.

Cons: Power button? Stands off the case, looks awkward.

Just got this case after doing some long needed upgrades to my 3yr old Phenom Rig (I was still running DDR2 mem lol) My rig was housed in a thermaltake V3, And this is a huge upgrade to complement any build. Reasonably priced ($75 with microcenter rebate) The cable management is the best part imo. It has a channel to run wires with hold down clamps to the back panel, Rubber grommets line the cutouts in the back panel to route wires as well. Badass military style looks and solid build quality. Id highly recommend this case.

Pros: lots of room, lots of fan options, great cable management, large window, looks great

Cons: stock airflow a little weak, stock window is annoying, no upper filter.

After countless hours of weeding through the ocean of mid sized cases I wound up with this C70 and nearly two years later I still love this case and I'm glad I got it instead of anything else. I wanted a case with cable management, a large window on the side, multiple fan options, good looks and for it to be of good quality. The C70 has all those things and more.

Nearly the entire case is made of metal. The only plastic is the filters, front panel trim, window and trim around the window, the handle grips and latch contacts. The handles are of more than sufficient strength, and one will support the weight of the rig if you need your other hand to turn a door knob or open the car door or something like that. The case is very easy to work with in terms of component installation / removal and cable management. There are holes with grommets as well as brackets for zip-ties. The I/O panel wires are long enough to route completely hidden from view. The I/O panel is well thought out with a white LED illuminated power button, headphone / mic jacks, 2 USB 3.0 ports and a reset button. The window is easily replaced with a sheet of clear acrylic from the hardware store.

The two HDD cages are modular and you can easily remove one or both of them. I chose to remove both for the sake of air-flow and mounted my HDDs in the 5.25" bays with 3.5" to 5.25" adapter brackets.

The included filters work well at keeping the dust level down inside the case. The bottom PSU / fan filters are split in the middle and slide out the front and rear of the case. The front panel filter requires removing the front panel, which requires removing both the left and right side covers and popping loose the front panel. This sounds like a chore at first, but it's quite simple and takes 20 seconds. Someone once mentioned they thought the tabs were too flimsy (they're metal) but I find the thickness sufficient and so long as you don't press them further than you needed to release, they spring back where they belong every time.

So far as cooling goes, there is one 120mm fan mount at the rear (stock fan included) You can have two 120mm fans or one 140mm fan (center) in the front behind the front panel. The HDD cages fit one 120mm fan on the backside of each (stock fans included) Depending on your power supply length and if you have the HDD cages installed, you can fit two 120mm or two 140mm fans on the bottom of the case. You can also fit two 120mm or two 140mm fans on the top of the case. The included window has mounts for two 120mm fans. You can fit a 240 radiator (15mm fan spacing) or 280 radiator (20mm fan spacing!) in the top of the case and a 240 in the front if you remove the HDD cages. You could install a 240mm or 280mm radiator on the bottom depending on your PSU length and HDD cage installation choice, though if you use a 280 plus fans you might run into clearance issue with the wiring from the PSU and the routing for those wires. There is also space for most CPU coolers.

In summary:

Rugged good looks- form follows function
Excellent cable management
Plenty of space for most water cooled & multiple GPU builds
Functional air filtration
Lots of options for additional fans - both size and placement
Space for large CPU coolers - (check your specifications!)

Pros: Looks awesome, rubberized cable routing holes, very sturdy, removable drive cages, plenty of fan mounts.

Cons: HDD/SSD drives need to be mounted backwards, side panel latches are loud, fans don't produce much airflow, hard drive trays are plastic.

Drawing inspiration from a military ammo box and Corsair's own Carbide and Obsidian series, this case is built for functionality.
When looking at the case, one of the first things you will notice is the handles. The only way you could get the handles loose is by using a bolt cutter. tongue.gif
Next, your eyes drift to the ammo box-style latches. These latches will keep your side panel totally secure, with no need for thumbscrews. However, they can get quite loud when snapped shut.
Look down, and you see an acrylic window with two 120mm fan mounts. You can unscrew the window from the side panel and rotate it so that the fan mounts don't interfere with your view of your components.
Speaking of components, this case can hold graphics cards up to 320mm, has eight expansion slots, and can seat an ATX or mATX motherboard. Two HDD/SSD cages hold up to three drives each, and can each be removed to give more room to your graphics card(s) if needed. Rubberized cable routing holes and cable clamps on the back of the motherboard tray make cable routing a breeze.
You know what else is a breeze? Ten 120mm fan mounts. Not too bad for a mid tower. thumb.gif
The front panel has a nice red power button, illuminated by a white LED. A reset switch that looks like it might launch a nuke, adds to the military theme. The other usual fare is two USB 3.0 ports, headphone and microphone jacks, and a HDD activity LED (illuminated with another white LED).
One more thing to mention. Some reviews of this case online say that the fan filters on the bottom of the case are loose, when in fact, they just have to be snapped into place.
All in all, this case is a worthy competitor in the ~$100 case market, and should be at the top of the list for your next build! thumb.gif
