    That is pretty lovely.

    I wonder, though, is there no way to turn off the LEDs? Other than installing a switch to do it yoursel? I have a couple scenarios where having bright LEDs in my case could be quite annoying. I only turn the one in my current one on when I am at LAN parties as sort of an ironic joke :p

    You can turn it off with the LED mode/switch selector buttons. You'll notice in the video that I start in the OFF position.

    These glass cases are great, but why just why do all manufacturers forget about dust?Is it really so hard to make one dustproof?

    Looks as usually great, but what I've seen few others reviews, this case noisy or noisiest case on market and price, still I would get Phanteks case

    Thanks, Jura

    I think adding exhaust fans would allow lower fans speeds.

    Hi there

    I would rather say, this case needs quiter fans and no always RGB fans are quiet fans, I think only ML series are quieter fans from Corsair what is offering

    As HH pointed out, this case needs too some sort of PWM hub or fan controller which would allow you to control fans through the mobo, yes I agree PWM hub are not expensive but I would expect to be there for this price

    I like this case, but for me is no go as there not lot of space for HDD, I'm running 3 SSD and 7 normal HDD

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    Yep, this is the one fellas. already wrote my local shop to ask when I can get one.

    Like this one better than the 460x. It has more room up front for large radiators like the predator 360, and now I'll be able to use in a push/pull config. Awesome.

    Plus, I only have 3 internal SSD as I have an external NAS for storage, so space is no issue for me.

    Can't wait to get it! My setup style points will get a big boost :)

    No case is dustproof though. It only takes a few minutes to clean inside a case anyway, I always clean inside mine whilst cleaning my house. Dust filters help, but are pointless if you clean your PC regularly, plus they affect airflow a lot.

    Personally when it comes to RGB controllable front LED fans in this case I'm not hyped about those, not a bit, but guess many out there, younger dudes on the first place, will be and you can turn those off so it's not a big deal aftera all. First thing I would do is to get rid of those transparent-whiteish fans on the front, mount 3x complete black fans and done with it: discrete lights comming from few motherboard and graphics card LEDs is all I need from this case to look just perfect.

    But everything else about this case is nothing more than exceptional, really beautiful. Hope I will have a chance to see it personally on Corsair stand some 5 days ahead in Belgrade.

    Thanks for the review HH!

    What a shame...i have 3 x 3 1/2" hd`s + 2 ssd`s.

    Im pretty sure most people have top fans venting out....so why on earth do companies block the airflow with filters, also unless the glass has an anti-static coating i can see this rapidly gathering dust on the glass. Such a good looking case though.

    Just saw the 460X existed - that looks interesting as well. Almost the same, but smaller.
