Both the front and side panel of Corsair's newest case are constructed of tempered glass, giving you an impressive view of the inside of your computer and the RGB LEDs on the cooling fans at the front.  At 480x234x512mm (18.9x9.2x20.2") it is a little more compact that other ATX compatible cases but still large enough to accept most components including a variety of radiators for watercoolers.  The PSU is located at the bottom, under a cover as are the bay for two 3.5" drives; three SSDs can be installed on the back side of the case.  [H]ard|OCP were quite enamoured with this case's looks and performance, and at $140 it is not overly expensive for a case with that much tempered glass.  That will leave you some money for the white gloves and glass cleaner you will need!

I have that case. And the biggest negative for me

- The front filter collect dust very quickly and it shows
- The only way to clean the filter is unscrew the glass front
- The RGB controler is pretty lame, no decent color, or cycle mode
- The back fan grill is actually very narrow

I still prefer 330r with an acrylic side panel...
