I'm going to keep this nice and short for anyone looking to buy this case. BUY IT. This case is wicked. And BT was bang on with their delivery. Well done to them. This is the BEST case I have EVER had.
5* Best Case I HAve Ever Owned
Reviewed by Pinguy on 09/02/2012
This is by far the best PC case I have ever owned. It comes with 4 very high end fans with space to add more. The fans it has got are very silent.

Nearly everything in the case is tool less meaning things like hard drives and optical drives are fitted with clips and not with screws.

The whole case is more or less perforated for air flow. Its all coved with dust covers so its very easy to keep clean and keeps the dust out.
The case is pretty large. It can easily fit the latest largest graphics cards that are out at the moment with ease. You can even move the hard drive caddy for extra space.

Cable management is awesome with this. You just tuck all the cables around the back.

Corsair maybe pretty new at doing PC cases but they are doing them really well.

P.S it comes with an adapter to covert USB3 to USB2 if your board hasn't got a USB3 connector. Also check out Youtube for reviews. There are some pretty well made video reviews for this case.
5* Great case
Reviewed by Lex on 31/10/2013
Good quality case, a pure delight when building your computer. I have had it for almost two years now and have no complaints. It cost me £80 at the time I bought it but has gone up since (£96 in October 2013) so I deducted one star in value for money. However this case will probably last you a lifetime.
