The 400R has been carefully designed for upgradability. With USB 3.0, support for 2.5 inch SSDs right out of the box, eight expansion slots, up to 316 mm of room for GPUs and even room for a full 240 mm radiator, the 400R packs a serious punch. And if cooling is your concern, the 400R has ten fan mounting points for cooling flexibility. Three 120 mm fans - two in the front and one in the rear - are included, so you're ready to start building right away. The side panels are easy access, with two captive thumbscrews on the rear of each so you never lose them.

Fan filters - yes it does have fan filters, but only on the front and bottom. This isn't too much of an issue for me because I have the side fan facing away from the dusty parts of my room, but it's worth noting. The bottom fan filter slides out so you can install a 120/140mm fan, but I can't because my PSU is quite long and covers some of the mounting holes. If you turn your PSU upside down as I did so that the intake fan points downwards, that's covered by the dust filter as well.
As for cooling, there's a total of ten fan mounts as listed, if you remove the 200mm side fan which I haven't just yet. Otherwise there are eight total. I, however, removed the top hard drive cage to improve airflow through there, and bought a Corsair SP120 fan to stick to the bottom hard drive cage in a push/pull type thing and also attached two Corsair AF140 Quiet Edition fans to the top of the case to act as exhausts. This means I have all 7 total fan mounts filled. The airflow is good when you manage the cables properly behind the motherboard. It was a bit of a squeeze for me because I'm terrible at managing cables, but there's enough room behind the motherboard tray for every cable you could ever fit in a case this size.
I can't speak much for ease of build. I imagine for a veteran it's a cakewalk to build in something as spacious as this, but I kept screwing up and had to remove the motherboard three times to fit new cables in or suchlike. I may even have to do it again to attach the wifi card to my motherboard. But what I will say is that this case is very forgiving for even a clumsy fool like myself, and it made it much less arduous than some cases I could mention (but won't). So overall I enjoyed building into it - you can get your hands around it and pick up dropped screws and so on, so no problems there other than ones I caused myself.
In my opinion, this chassis looks better than it's supposed better, the Graphite 600T. It's imposing and angular, but not ugly. The paint is solid and only scratched off where I attached my anti-static wristband, while a screwdriver barely scraped it. Most importantly it comes with a fan LED switch. A lot of cases seem to forgo this for some reason, but the 500R has one and I'm eternally grateful for it. During the day, the white light looks great but at night it gets a little bright and obtrusive and it's great to have the option to switch it off. The fan controller is a bit basic, only wiring up to the front and side fans by default, and I just leave it on maximum because they're quiet enough at that setting.
So basically, a forgiving first-timer's case with good cooling, cable routing and more than enough space for two, perhaps three large graphics cards, native SSD support (so no need to go out and buy an adapter), removable hard drive cages and a switch to turn off the LEDs if they get annoying (which they might in the dark) all in a <£100 case. You'll probably need to buy some extra fans if you're going the overclocking/heavy use route, but I guarantee you won't mind because the case you're putting them is of such great quality.
This is a solid, fairly heavy-duty case with some good cable routing options. This houses my first built PC so I don't have anything to compare it to, but I am overall very happy with my purchase.
It's a bit ugly, like most PC cases, it could be cleaner looking.
It's heavy as hell. Probably want to avoid this if you'll regularly be going LAN parties/your friends although one plus for this purpose is that it has a handle on the top.
The lights are bad in my opinion. I didn't even know it had them when I bought it but they're never on. They're a cold blue / white.
The hard drive LED is bright and really annoying if you're trying to sleep with your PC on. Might want to replace it with a dimmer one. Though I have no idea how complicated this could be it's probably best done before you build your PC.
But that's the only cons I can think of. They're just lights.
As a case, this is a 3.5/5.
As for the more practical side of things, Cable management is a tad more difficult than it should be, but nothing that's overly annoying to make a fuss out of. The clip at the top where you pull the cover for the fans off(although I know this is more down to me being sloppy) is a little flimsy, you really have to be careful when you pop the top off, I broke mine and the cover sort of just sits there now.
There is loads of space inside, and I mean LOADS, not just for a graphics card but for hardrives, disc player, whatever you want to put in the front of it, there's room for it.
The case comes with a fan controller with three options to go at a fast speed, low, or medium, and there's minimal noise from the fans.
There is a dust filter on the bottom, it's brilliant.
And just one last thing, the tray at the top, the plastic(whatever type of plastic they used I have no idea) is extremely hard to keep clean, dust will stick to it and for the love of God do not let your sister put their cup of tea in it, it's difficult to get rid of the ring.
