For a case that has "premium" in the name is sure does look cheap. I don't feel that Corsair has found their real style of cases (eventhough they dont make bad cases). I feel like they are just following trends and have nothing that makes them stand out stylewise or functionwise.

It looks better in the video tbh. I love it, all apart from that hex frame. It's just too busy and detracts from the gorgeous glass. Shame, maybe you could mod it?

Edit. Within three minutes you'd taken it out Tom lol. Just a dust filter, those would have to go.

Still prefer the look of the Thermaltake Core P5 personally

But the 460X looks like a very good deal

Don't you hold out on us Snef! I'm itching to see what you're teasing now.

Argh my missus was getting me the 460X as a Christmas present. I was tossing up between that and the Fractal Define C - yes the Fractal is probably a better product and quality but that bling though...

Now I may have to talk her up to the next level and go 570X. Such a beautiful looking case! Mod those dust filters and she'd be spot on.

The only drawbacks aside from a more regimented cleaning regime for dust and fingerprints that concerns me is that when I transport it I'd have to be extra careful. My 500R has a few dings from travelling in the back of the car so I'd need a pillow sandwich or something.

I also believe the RGB fans don't actually have an off setting for the LEDs which could be a little annoying if you leave it on overnight.

Sorry i don't like this case at all, I don't like the fact it completely see through don't get me wrong i like temped glass but to me this case looks cheap and plastic which i know it's not.

IMO Corsair have lost there way with case design, Also i think too Corsair haven't made a good case in over 2 years back when they were making the obsidian line of cases.

Also i feel like this is kinda a rip off of another case Tom review a while ago.

Again with the DAMN RGB LED Fans sigh.

I think it's a beautiful looking case. But I don't see why anyone would call it a ripoff? Do you also call it a ripoff, when everyone is using plastic panels on their case? It's not like one company have the only rights to do tempered glass side panels.
