Rated 4 out of 5 by MrDonkey A really great case, just be careful with wiring
Used this case for a new Skylake build some months ago and I have to say I'm really impressed with it. Good solid construction, with plenty of routing options for cables. Be warned though, this really is a full-sized case, so check your measurements for where you're thinking of putting it!
I've put the massive 280mm Corsair H110i GTX in the roof, which easily fits with room to spare. Definitely no need to worry about space inside this case. I've also put an MSi GTX 980Ti Lightning in, the one with three cooling fans, and despite its length it also fits, no problem.
The case fans which are provided are also very quiet, but not too surprisingly, the noise they make depends on what speed you run them at. Having now had time to experiment, I've run the case fans direct from my PSU, which has a dedicated connection, and also using the fan controller connections built into the case. I've ended up settling for using the case's own controller as the three different speeds give you plenty of options. By default the case powers on with the fans at level 3, the fastest and "loudest", but if you're doing anything other than very quiet office work you're unlikely to notice them. Out of habit I find I now usually just hit the fan button once which cycles them down to level 1 when I power on, but it's just my preference.
Two reasons for docking Corsair a star, as this really is an excellent case:
1) One of the front mounted fans had a duff bearing. Sounded like I'd caught a cable or something in the blades when I first powered it on. Tried various positions and wiring but it proved to definitely be the fan at fault. Called Scan and they immediately arranged for a replacement through Corsair, which came about 4 days later - very pleased with the service!
2) the wiring loom for the case fans, lights and switches, as mentioned in other reviews, is a bit of a hit and miss affair. I've seen several reviews here and elsewhere on the web saying that their lights for the case switches and buttons don't work. Note that you really do need to connect everything to the right power cable. In all my years PC building I still made a mistake and had not lights for the buttons to start with. Make sure you connect the lighting cable to a Molex main power cable rather than running it off a SATA power cable. It definitely pays dividends if you take the time to sit down and separate/sort out the bundle of cables before you start connecting stuff. When everything finally lights up red on the top panel it's a lovely sight to behold!

This case has made my recent PC build so much easier due to the amount of room available and the cable routing options. My only slight niggle was the slightly flimsy construction of the side panels. However in fairness, this has not been a concern during either the build or subsequent usage. All in all, an excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chris888 plenty room for pretty much everything, looks epic and well designed
It looks epic and has more room than i need, It has so much potential for xtreme builds and with the built in fan controler it is super quiet on lowest setting even with x5 140mm x1 120mm and a 80mm fans running, it would have been better if it had 8 fan control rather than 5, the front dust filter does restrict a small amount of airflow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mike82 Best case I've purchased
No doubt this is the best case I've purchased.
Very spacious in side.
The cable management is excellent.
Fitted a H110i GT & its superb.
Fans can be a little noisy but I just run it on the lowest setting.
Can be a little bit fiddly to install everything but once you have it set up your never look back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SuddenlyPineapples Great high-end case
The case seemed pretty well packed from the factory and arrived in top condition; they even ship it in a cloth cover within the box.
The build quality is top notch, easily the best of several different cases I've worked with recently.
All possible fan mounts (except the rear) have external, removable dust filters which slide or simply push into place for easy cleaning, and the two front/one rear 140mm basic corsair AF fans that come with the case are pretty good in terms of air flow and low noise (you probably don't need to replace them straight away unless you have some specific air flow requirements)
The top mounting space has plenty of clearance within the case and there is about another 25ish mm between the frame and top dust filter meaning you can either hide a radiator up there, or fans, or there is plenty of room for a push/pull set up
There are 6 regular sized HDD bays, the sleds of which have screw mounting holes for SSDs too, and these are split into two cages of 3 slots - both cages can be removed, hung from the top 5.25" mount, placed side by side at the bottom of the case etc, making for some pretty flexible storage options.
The only real disappointing parts about the case for me are the complete mess of I/O cabling that quite frankly I just ended up tucking away into some space at the front of the case, it took a fair while to sort and untangle the basics (USB, Audio header etc) and the rest I kinda just hooked up as needed in a bit of a mess. (By the way, if you've hooked up most of the stuff you think you know about and still have a power connector dangling around, its probably the I/O and front lighting)
The second issue - and this is probably my own fault / inability / unwillingness (call it what you will) - is that the horizontal SSD bays which fit between the drive cage area and the rear panel don't really lend themselves to being used unless you have straight connector or even individual SATA power cables for your PSU. (Again, this could just be my complete lack of cabling ability so it shouldn't be a deal breaker when looking at this case, but just keep in mind that it seems tricky to use these bays with standard cabling).
I definitely recommend this case if you've got some large components, multiple GPUs, or custom cooling loop that will look great displayed through the huge windowed side panel

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ashy92 Great Case
When I bought this case I was expecting a high end service and I was not disappointed, the LED red lights make it look gorgeous, however I added a few blue LED strips and now its amazing and its massive you can fit four graphic cards

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frooble Corsair Graphite 780T
I bought this to replace my Coolermaster Storm trooper case.
I actually love the 780T and I especially like the way the side panels are so easily removed (I hate those slide panels because I open my PC case constantly). There's also plenty of room within to bung just about anything you like in there.
I was a bit worried about cooling (even though I've a Corsair H110i GT Hydro Cooler in there) so I decided to mod the side panel to include a 120mm fan, which is now blowing on the back plate of the CPU). I'm not saying this case does not have adequate options for fans and the like because it does, but my case gets mighty hot inside and I do like to have as much cool air blowing in as possible.
I also like the fact that you can buy spare parts for this case from Corsair themselves. That way, if you make an error while modding you can replace the part you ruined! ;)
All in all a splendid case. I'll be doing a new build toward the end of 2015 and this case is at the top of my shopping list....
I marked "Value" down to "Good" because I thought this case a little more expensive than it should have been. That being said the build quality is excellent and I will definitely be buying another...
Basically "What's not to like?!"
Recently I've been buying a lot of Corsair Stuff. My system memory, my cooler and all my PSUs are Corsair, good quality gear in my opinion...
