The 650D has a large 200mm fan at the top of case and a single 120mm fan on the back for exhaust.The top 200mm fan can be exchanged out for two 120mm fans, or a 2x120mm radiator, if you would like to go that route.
The front intake has another 200mm fan to bring in fresh air, which will blow straight over your hard drives, keeping them nice and cool.
The Corsair 650D was a pleasure to work with while reviewing it. The 650D oozes class with the brushed black exterior, which helps show the quality and pride Corsair takes in making their cases. The stealth I/O ports were a nice touch to help keep the clean, minimalistic look on the front. The top hot-swap bay is a nice addition to the 650D, making it simple for the average person (or lazy power user). The quick release handles make us really happy, as it takes no time at all to get inside the 650D. This is great if you like to exchange hardware out on a regular basis.
The addition of the USB 3.0 connections is good to see as more and more peripherals are starting to utilize it. With the built in fan controller, you can control the noise and performance of your cooling easily with the three settings provided. The wire management solutions provided by Corsair were some of the best on the market. It will help any user install their system with very clean and clutter-free wire management without any hassle whatsoever.
The synthetic fiber mesh filters will do a great job of keeping the dust to a minimum inside the 650D. The massive 200mm intake fan will do a good job bringing in fresh air to the 650D while keeping your drives cool. The Corsair 650D has set the bar for mid-tower cases, which will be tough to reach for other cases on the market today. We would happily recommend this case to any of our friends who are looking for a great case, though the impressive quality and feature list do come with a nontrivial pricetag of nearly $200 USD.
