    Nice that they're using the same bulgy side panel design as the 500R. Bags of room for cables.

    Bad move on putting the IO panel on the side, though - Limits the options for case placement.
    My case currently sits on my left side, 'front' panel facing to the right so the case window faces forward. Most people would probably put this on their right side facing front so they can still see inside, meaning the IO ports are on their 'far' side and cables have to stretch further...

    Still seems like a good entry-level case, though.

    Connectors on the opposite side of the "window"... what are designer thinking?

    ni case but echo Ttaskmasters comments about io placement, really don't like them on the back side. front or top for me but nice case for a good price.

    Been thinking about a new case for a month or two now , been more than happy with my Xigmatek Midguard but just fancied a change , I eneded up buying a Gamemax Silent one couple of weeks ago , very similar to a Fractal and amazing value £43.00. This Cosair unit isn't bad for the money but as others state , inputs on side is a no , no, also just one USB3 port , come on.
