I must say, I don't have steady hand and my phone cam sucks btw.

So excited! packaging was sturdy, was easy to remove my black precious out of the box.

200mm side fan levels equally as if there were no side fan but the wire seems a little short for my taste (about 1.5 feet)

looks about the same as 400r except 3 click fan speed controller.
IMG_20110919_151616.jpg

looks little brighter than it actually looks because of the direct sunlight but you may notice slight color difference btw the center and side.
Center looks jet black, side has little dark metallic grey finish on them.

USBs wires to go to mobo

things that are included

front panel was easy to take out but has sturdy feel to it
IMG_20110919_152619.jpg

large bottom filter outside of the case, easy to slide in and out.

if it wasn't for it.. my psu might get killed some time soon.

couple things I might add, I thought I was gonna get speed controller for all 5 fans, maybe I understood it wrong but I don't see any way to connect 200mm side fan and 120mm rear fan to be controlled. one controller that I see is the 3 click speed controller for 2 front fans that are already connected to the case. Manual? Instruction paper? is a single paper folded telling you what are inside, weird thing is doesn't even mention the fan controller.

I will update as I go on moving parts out of my old armor case.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that you can attach 3 fans to the fan controller. not 2 as I told before.

fantastic phinos, I really can't wait to get mine

texas_nightowl - you're added

I'm currently running my rig caseless with the stock fan since I have to wait for the case to get the watercooling tubing measured out.

Just checked 400R at my Local NCIX. It was side by side with 600T and 650D. One thing i can say it does not carry Corsair quality. Build quality feel cheap. I would recommend spending a bit more and getting 600T.
