An absolute beast of a case. This is my newest computer case and I have no desire to change that in the near future.
First of all, this thing is built like a tank as far as PC cases go. Nothing flimsy here: just pure build quality, solid design, no cutting corners. Hardly any plastic goes into this case. I have the upmost faith that this case will last me a long time. I even like the screws that the case came with.
Space: This case is gigantic and can hold lots of things. It has so much room for expansion. With my previous cases, I had to consider the clearance needed for my GPUs and radiators. Not for the 5000D: I know I can upgrade my parts without needing to consider clearance space or size. And that's a huge plus if you plan on PC gaming for the long run. I have a large GPU, a GPU brace, and a figurine in this thing, and I still have room.
Cable Management: This thing can hold your cables and keep it all pretty. There are plenty of holes and paths to route your cables in an efficient and aesthetically pleasing way. There's even an ingenious velcro cable tie system on the right side of the case to keep everything organized. The HDD bay, which usually gets in the way of the PSU cables, can slide over to give more room for tucking away spare cables that would just dangle around in most PC cases.
Customization: There is a swappable plate for the interior of the case that gives you a slick curve if you don't need the HDD bay moved all the way over: and if you do need the HDD bay moved over, the other plate looks just fine too. You can fit 140mm or 120mm fans. I even found the perfect spot for my fan hub. One advantage of a large case like the 5000D is that you can find a spot for almost anything you want to add.
Cooling / Temps: This case keeps my parts ice cold. Even running games at their max, I've never seen my temps over 55. I don't know how much of it can be credited to the 5000D, but it is certainly a factor. This case was probably designed with cooling in mind. It can hold 140mm fans up front, it has side panel fans, plenty of clearance up top for a radiator, and there are almost no air leaks throughout the case (no matter how negligible that effect may be, it's still nice). Having potentially 10 120mm case fans is a dream come true. The case also has really nice dust filters that sit perfectly where they should, and are built to last. Yes, i've broken a plastic dust filter in the past. The 5000D was clearly built for me. And as another note, I have the model that has a solid front and top (with vents on the side). With my previous cases, I would worry that not enough air travels through the case because the front and top intakes were covered by plastic/metal, but the vents on the 5000D are large enough that it is clearly not a problem. The air goes in, no doubt, but it also protects anything from getting into the PC.
Aesthetics: I'd like to commend Corsair for making a great-looking case. It sits on my desk and I am proud to show it off. Pictures can make it look boxy or stiff because of the sheer size of it, but once it's actually in your sights, it looks great. It's no-nonsense, it's functional, yet it's cool. The smoky window on the left panel is excellent. You can see your RGB working inside the case without being too overbearing. I've had cases where the light bled through too much.
Some negatives: There really isn't much to complain about. The thing is heavy, but that's because it's large. I do wish that the side panel fans weren't as noisy: unlike the other areas, these fans have practically nothing between them and the outside. However this is more of a problem with my choice of case fan rather than the case itself. The thing also just barely misses the clearance for 3 140mm case fans, overkill though that may be. It leaves an awkward hole of like 120mm where it doesn't fit.
Overall, this is the best PC case for the value. I have no need to check if anything more expensive is better because, well, this does everything I want. I recommend it for anyone near the mid-tier PC level, and doubly so if it's on sale.
