Taking a closer look at the front of this rather unusually shaped case shows that Corsair is using high quality materials. The plastics for example have a velvety finish. The front has been split into two parts and on the right hand sider there is space for two 5.25 inch drives. Below the driver there is the power and the reset buttons. Next to these two buttons, you find two USB 3.0 ports, a headphone in as well as a headphone out. On the left side you find a dustfilter, behind which there are two Corsair AF140L 140 millimeter fans. The dust filter itself is being kept in place by mangnet in the corner of the filter piece, which makes it very hand to remove and wash. Behind the air filter there is space for either two 140 or three 120 millimeter fans. Later in this review we will show you what you can actually fit into this case, since it offers quite a lot interior space. But before that a short note about the Corsair fans. The AF140L are high-flow fans, which brings the consequence, that there actully quite noisy. Since, the interior is very well thought it's absolutely not necessary to equip this case with such noisy fans. We would have loved to see lower rpm fans that offer a lower noise level.



Next to the usual slot bezels, of which there are nine in this case, there is space for another pre-installed AF140L 140 millimeter fan, which has been placed right behind the CPU cooler.
