  • Abstract:  I've taken a look at the 500R that Corsair sent. The 400R is (judging by the way its modeled) most likely a stripped down all-black case. Time to see if the case is good for its money worth.1. Introduction 2. Packaging and Specifications 3. External Imp...

  • It’s always tough to rank products in roundups like these, especially when each one has merit, as is the case with each of the products we reviewed here. Truly, depending on your taste and needs, you could purchase any one of these cases and be satisfi...

  • Abstract:  Corsair's successful entry into the case world has taken quite a few people by surprise including consumers and many competitors in the case market. With the first Corsair Obsidian series, the 800D, Corsair standardized many features that were only ...

  • Nice looking, Cable managment, Prepared for watercooling and fans, No vibrations
  • Price
  • This is a very nice case, with a pricetag of 140$ it might scare off some of the potential buyers. I would have liked to see a price closer to 100$ for this to be really able to compete with cheaper on the market, granted they don’t have the same feat...

  • Lack of dust filter/cover on the left side panel and on top optional fan mounting areas,
  • The Carbide 400R is the most economical chassis from Corsair’s line but it is every bit as impressive as its premium priced siblings. For a steel chassis, the Carbide 400R is surprisingly light in weight and svelte-looking externally but spacious and r...

  • Affordability meets quality, Supports future technologies, Sleek and stylish, Great cable management, Great cooling support,
  • None that I found
  • While the Corsair Carbide 400R is one of the cheapest cases put out by Corsair, it’s certainly a high quality one. Then again, I wouldn’t really think of this case as a budget case, but rather an upgraded budget case, with a $99.99 price tag. There are...

  • The Corsair Carbide 400R gets a gold star for being the easiest case I've had the pleasure of working with thus far. The cable management is truly top notch, and ample interior room is available to accommodate most hardware configurations. The overall qu...

  • Value for money, USB3/USB2adapter, Plenty of optional cooling
  • Dust filter removable through the back, No dust filter on the front, Lots of open fan holes with no filters
  • The Carbide series is yet another product area for Corsair to conquer, the price of the 400R sits at the 100 dollar mark, and also in Finland you can get the case for roughly hundred euros. Looking at the specifications and feature Corsair hasn't real...

  • The Corsair Carbide Series 400R is a success for Corsair, as it delivers good cooling performance at a reasonable price point. There’s also plenty of cooling flexibility built in, thanks to the myriad fan mounts, as well as plenty of useful features su...
