    Yo this case is PLENTY big for anything you want. But the M2 slots at the back are kinda useless, when I connect the cables I am not able to screw them back in (maybe I am doing something wrong here). But one of the BEST value for money. Comes with Corsair Commander Pro, Lighting Hub and 2 LL fans. Cant go wrong here. And I got it for 150 bucks open box cant complain !

    I love the glass and easy-access doors, but it makes cable management a nightmare for a first-time builder like me since I can't very easily shove the cables inward with a traditional sliding panel like the unknowledgeable person I am.

    I am in love with this case! I was previously using a 460x, which was great but became somewhat cramped. I considered going with a 570x, but it didn't seem like it had enough additional features to warrant changing cases (which is a major pain in the butt... I had to spread it out over two days). This is built on the same chassis as the 570x but had enough new features for me to pull the trigger. The hexagonal design on the front filter of the 460x/570x were a little much for me -- the cross design on this one seems a little more elegant. The glass doors are so ridiculously convenient that I don't think I can ever go back to regular panels -- it's so nice to be able to just open the door to access something inside. The dust filters are removed very easily and the fans are mounted using removable trays, which are held in by two thumb screws -- very convenient. I came from a 460x, which is, in comparison, pretty compact, so, comparatively, this was much easier to build in. I don't think I'd go so far as to say that this was "easy", as I haven't built in many cases and you certainly need to be mindful of the backside, since it's visible through the glass panel (granted, it is very tinted). Because the back glass panel is a door which closes using magnets, you can't just "stuff the panel closed", like I did with my 460x. If you have lots of RGB controllers like me, it can definitely get tricky. Luckily, there's an included cable cover that really helps get the door to close, as well as makes it look much better. There are plenty of grommets and cable tie points so the potential for proper cable management is certainly there, just expect to spend a little extra time.

    Style and Function all in one package. I'm really happy with this case.

    Premium case and lovely to work with, overall, but with a few niggles. For the price of the case, the 3 included LL-series fans and the two controllers, it's brilliant value.

    The positioning of the Commander Pro and the Lighting Node Pro leaves a lot to be desired in regards to trying to connect a compatible Corsair fan in the rear-fan position - I'd have preferred them to be included but not attached/stuck on. Cable management features aren't too bad but can be a squeeze to fit everything into the cable bar.

    Whilst the motherboard-side glass window closes fine, the other side only really magnetises on one corner and doesn't fit quite so securely. Not sure if this is a QA or general thing.

    The best looking case in my opinion. The three included LL120 and Commander Pro make it a great value. A really annoying thing was that whoever made this case stuck the Commander Pro and RGB Hub to the back of the case with 3M tape, and it was literally impossible to get off (without damaging the case). I had to settle for slightly worse cable management.

    This case is absolutely beautiful. The tempered glass combined with the RGB give a very nice and clean aesthetic. I really love the look of this case. My only complaint, and the reason it lost a star, is that it has limited cable management space behind the right side panel. To make matters worse, because that panel is also tempered glass, you have to try and have really clean cable management on both sides. Don't get me wrong, the tempered glass looks really nice and I do like having it, but that extra effort required to tie and tuck every single cable makes it slightly less appealing. I would definitely build in this case again, just be aware that it will take you some extra time to work out your cable routing well.

    from completed build POWER LEVEL: OVER 9000

    This case is beautiful and full of features. Comes with 3 LL120 fans in the front along with Commander Pro and the Fan Hub. Absolute joy to work in. The wiring was a bit tough, but once you get it, it will be looking sleek and gorgeous.

    This mid tower case is not only gorgeous but also incredibly practical in terms of cable management. It comes with the Commander Pro and LED / Fan Hub, making configuration of all the fan and LED inputs a breeze. It was incredibly easy to work in. The doors on the sides are easily removed by simply unscrewing the pins in the joins. I successfully mounted a Micro ATX motherboard. It required me to screw in some of the spare mounts supplied with the case. But it fit in perfectly without any additional force.

    Because I went with a M.2 SSD, I didn't need all of the different chassis for the HDD and SSD. However, I did find it disappointing to find the HDD chassis were made of cheap plastic, while the SSD were made of the same steel as the rest of the case. Seemed odd.

    As far as long-term maintenance. It comes with easy removable dust vents that magnetically attach to the case's frame. These have done well so far to keep dust out. It has been a few months at this point and I've found the insides of the case to be dust free. Which is a huge win.

    This case is extremely heavy. Probably the only downside I could find with it.

    from completed build Wallflower to Desk Tower

    I had a rocky start with this case, having never dealt with fan controllers or lighting nodes, I wasn't knowledgeable on their placements within the case. It wasn't until I got to the point of routing all my fans and getting everything plugged in that I realized the Commander Pro that came with the case was factory mounted in a terrible, and utterly wrong, location. As you look at the case from the primary display side, the Commander Pro was mounted to the bottom right inside of the tempered glass. That means that if you were able to somehow plug everything in, you wouldn't be able to even open it, because the fan wiring would prevent it. I called tech support to ask them about it, and the tech acknowledged that it was a known issue and their solution was to use a blow dryer or other heat source to heat the adhesive to the put that it would pull off easily. I spent the MSRP of $250 just to have to use a blow dryer to remove and replace a factory mistake. Fortunately, in the end, it did work, and now I absolutely love the case. It was pretty easy to build in overall, and it seems to flow well enough. The LL fans look outstanding, and the build quality is top notch. Cable routing can be tough, especially since the routing side is also tempered glass that closes by way of magnets. If you don't route well enough, the glass won't fully close.

    I do love this case, but the initial problem and tech support's solution really put me off. There was no attempt to reconcile the issue on Corsair's side, other than to tell me to fix it myself. I would have appreciate it if they had extended some kind of nicety to me, such as a coupon or something for my trouble, but there was no such offer. At the end of the day, I do love the case, and I would recommend it for someone looking for a well built, and well lit case.
