I like IF i didnt already have Define R5 I probably would bought that. simply for the HDD location and the PSU.HDD being closed off Look like Smaller R5 with some nice tweaks.
Looks almost identical to the Corsair Carbide 400Q which I recently acquired.
Thanks for the review! The fan controller is the only omission, as far as I can see. Also the case should probably drop around $10. With literally $99 you can find R5s these days.
I note 2 minor omissions: lack of tool-free HDD/SSD installation and no HDD activity LED on the front i/o panel.

If it's like the R5, the HDD LED is part of the power button.Ah that's why I missed it, it is also mentioned in the article "power button, HDD activity led and power/reset buttons". I really like the PSU/HDD compartment and the cable routing space behind the rubber gomet area and the white accent expansion slot covers. Those are things where the Carbide 400Q falls a little bit short but it looks sexier on the outside. Define C looks like it was assembled from 2 separate cases and couldn't match the color.
