Corsair's Carbide 400R case goes on sale

Written by Slobodan Simic

For US $99
Corsair has announced that its latest Carbide Series PC case, the mid-tower 400R, has started selling around the globe. Featuring support for micro ATX and ATX motherboards and a full black paint job, the 400R also comes with a rather low US $99 price tag.

As far as the spec go the 400R supports micro ATX and ATX motherboard, has room for four 5.25-inch devices and six 3.5/2.5-inch ones, has eight PCI openings, front I/O panel with two USB 3.0 ports, Firewire, and audio ports, and comes with three preinstalled 120mm fans, two in the front and one in the back. In case those three fans are not quite enough for you, there is room for two more on top and two on the side.

As noted, the case is completely painted in black, including the interior, and features a rather decent looking design. It has a large hole on the motherboard tray making CPU backplate installation pretty easy and it features quite a few holes for cable management. (Much like Osama bin Laden. sub.ed.)

The new 400R comes backed by a two year warranty. As noted, the new Carbide 400R case is currently on sale all around the globe with a suggested price tag set at US $99.

cooler master haf series in IMO are some of the best cases around. with he haf 912 for 60, a case like this would have to be something special to make sense at 100 dollars

This will probably be my next case (if I don't see something better before I buy.) It is priced right, is short enough to fit on my desk top with enough clearance not to hit the first shelf, has good airflow, and a filter for the PSU. I like my Antec DF-30 but it doesn't have a bottom vent for the PSU.

It looks like Corsair has added support for the H100 installation on this model if you want CPU watercooling. It's very good quality for 100 bucks. You also have four watercooling ports on the rear which is something you don't normally find in low cost PC cases

looking good,
I'm still waiting for 500R, also considering 600T but it's very big and does't come with dust filter for top fan which is quite annoying for 150 euro case.CM HAF series might be good choice as well.

It would be nice to see some 5 cases under 100 bucks roundup

The Cooler Master 912 is a nice case but the only version that I see with USB 3 is the 912 Advanced which I can't find for sale.
