Wow this tower looks great! Provides good cooling and cable managment capabilities, has clip on hard drive mounts that may seem a bit flimsy at first but really are not and is just generally an amazing looking case.

Love this tower. Plenty of space. Pretty good on cable management. Looks good with the stock blue fans.

Great product, the size is good for most motherboard, graphic cards , cpu coolers. Would recommend to anyone looking for a cheap case with good space. Includes two fans wich i didn't notice on the case's description.

The Corsair 500R is much more case than I need. It should be able to handle years of upgrades and whatever I throw at it. Although cable management was a mess, after using a few of the included zip-ties, it cleaned up nice.

PRO:

  • Includes 4 LED fans, pre-connected to the front panel fan controller. Since I wasn't overclocking, this was enough for my cooling needs.

  • Tons of space inside. 4x5.25" external bays. 6x3.5"internal bays, with removable trays to clear space for cooling. The top includes space for 2x120mm fans, which I didn't use but adds options for serious cooling. Plently of cable-routing holes and tie-offs.

CON:

  • The case bulges out on the sides, I guess to accommodate the large 200mm fan on the left side, and cables on the right.

  • Even with the extra space on the right side, cable management was ugly. The internal drive bays are mounted so that SATA and power cables must run on the right side, which is very tight on space. It does help the case look tidy, but I echo other reviewers that having to remove both side panels to swap out drives is a hassle.

Overall, it's a solid case with plenty of room for expansion.

It was good enough to use in a rebuild, I replaced all original fans after 5 years.
