5 out of 5 eggsno rebate

Pros: nice workable case/ not to big not to small/ everything fits. This my second case like the first that much.

Cons: rebate was mailed in(on time) , log it on corsair web site , looks like it went with Dorthy and Toto, not sure who to blame newegg or corsair, now the fun starts tracking my expired rebate, not.

Other Thoughts: be real, lets us log our rebates on line and not be at the mercy of snail mail, hell i am 60 yrs old and know better, the worse part was i called newegg to help with what to ship to corsair and they did not even know where the upc code was on the box or the upc code its self , will stay way from rebates in future

5 out of 5 eggsSpacious

Pros: Installation: Everything fits.

Cable management: Enough options for a novice to manage cables half decently.

Other: Plenty of zip ties, hdd screws, optical screws, ssd screws, fan screws, and motherboard screws to screw everything in.

Cons: Minor: This may be a standards issue with ATX/Micro ATX compatible cases, the far right top/bottom mounting holes for a Micro ATX motherboard are not secured due to no available mounting studs supplied by the case.

There are enough side/top openings worry about foreign material intrusion into the case.

Other Thoughts: System Build

MOBO: ASRock H97M Pro4
CPU: Intel Core i5-4430
GPU: Sapphire R9 270X 2GB
RAM: G.Skill 8GB DDR3 1600

4 out of 5 eggsVery simple, easy case

Pros: Building with this case was a cinch. For the most part, this is a tool-less installation. For a budget case, there is some cable management along the side, but keep in mind you are getting what you paid for, and it's worth it in my opinion.

Cons: Some of the standoffs wouldn't screw in easily with my fingers, so I had to grab a pair of pliers to get them in. One was so stubborn, it bent that point on the case, forcing me to leave that one out completely as it would have been lopsided.

4 out of 5 eggsUpdate to previous review - I was partially wrong but the basic issue remains

Pros: This is an update to the review I just wrote on this case, because I can't figure out if there is a way to edit a review.

My comment / con about fan mounting for hard drive cooling was not completely correct. It actually is possible to mount a fan outside of the case chassis and still inside the front cover panel. At first glance, it looks like it isn't possible. At second glance, it looks like you have to remove the front panel, the hard drive cage, and 2 of the tool-free HDD mounting brackets. On third glance after disassembling everything, you'll find that the HDD cooling fan mounting holes are sized for the included fan, but are small and threaded so they require a long thin screw instead of a normal short/fat fan mounting screw. Corsair has helpfully included 4 of these long/thin screws in the included hardware bags (YAY!) but unfortunately this mounting method means that the included rubber anti-vibration fan mounting grommets do not work (boo!). If the screws were a little longer then maybe a little rubber gasket or grommet could be used, but not only are the screws just a bit too short to do this, the hardware kit doesn't include any rubber discs that would be appropriate for mounting this fan with a little rubber anti-vibration isolation.

Cons: Since the front fan is attached right by the hard drives, and vibration isn't good for hard drives, and the fan is essentially outside the case (while still inside the front cover), not being able to attach the fan with rubber anti-vibration grommets makes this only half a win for Corsair. So they still lose an egg.

Other Thoughts: Kudos to Corsair for including the required long screws necessary to move the included front fan from above the HDD cage to in front of the HDD cage to give hard drive airflow. Unfortunately the design and included hardware doesn't permit this fan to be mounted with any sort of anti-vibration rubber grommets. Having the HDD fan mounting holes drilled out to standard fan mounting size would permit the use of the included rubber fan vibration grommets, however then installing that fan would require removal of both the HDD cage and 2 of the plastic tool-free mounting clips that are in the way of the hdd fan mounting holes. I'm not sure what is a better solution, however given the current system, it would be nice if Corsair would include some smaller/thinner anti-vibration grommets (essentially just some thin rubber discs or strips would be more than sufficient) and have the long/thin fan mounting screws just a bit longer to accommodate the slight mounting stand-off of the fan if rubber strips were used to isolate fan vibration. This fan could potentially be the loudest fan in the whole system because it is between the case and inside the plastic front fascia, and has no vibration isolation. So this little omission has the potential to cause quite a bit of noticeable noise/vibration as well as vibrate the HDD cage which can't be good for the hard drives.

The more I work with this case transferring a computer from an old/crummy case to this new one, the more I like it. Some of these tiny feature omissions or design flaws are pretty frustrating though, since they could be fixed so simply. Some little stick-on rubber discs or strips and 1mm longer fan mounting screws would permit vibration isolation of the front hdd fan, at minimal cost. Or a design change permitting use of normal fan screws and grommets would require no additional hardware, at the expense of the owner having to remove the hdd cage and some plastic brackets to get the fan installed.

4 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

Pros: Nice general corsair carbide design features, like tool-free HDD mountings, lots of fan options, etc.

Cons: You get what you pay for. I have a corsair carbide 500R and it has several notable features that this 200R does not. First, the side panels of the 200R do not have "captive" thumbscrews. That means when you unscrew them completely, they fall out. In the 500R and other quality cases, the thumbscrews are captive so when they are fully unscrewed, the thumbscrews remain attached to the side panel instead of falling. Also, even though both the 500R and 200R have very similar front panel ports (USB 3.0 plus audio), the 200R does not come with the little adapter cable that lets you plug the front panel ports into older usb 2.0 mobo pins.

So.. you get what you pay for. I guess I didn't pay for captive screws and the USB 3.0 to 2.0 cable adapter even though both of these cases are in the same "carbide" product line.

Also, a feature failure specific to this case, is that there is no way to attach a front fan that blows across the hard drives. Apparently you have to remove the drive mounting bracket entirely if you want to put a front fan down where the drives go. This is a fairly significant design flaw, especially since there appears to be plenty of room underneath the front of the case, had they designed the front to be able to be removed and a fan put there. I'd like to be able to mount a very slow/quiet fan to blow over my hard drives since they heat up a lot under heavy use, but that simply isn't possible with this case. I'm going to have to go back to my case modding days to get some airflow directed over the hard drives, something I haven't had to do with any other case I've purchased in the last 15 years.

Other Thoughts: Again for the price, its a nice case. The corsair carbide line is attractive in an understated way, and has an awful lot of cooling options. The huge glaring defect of not having any way to blow air over the hard drives is most of what cost this case one egg. The other two fit and finish details of not having captive thumbscrews for the side panels and not including the USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 adapter cable is apparently a matter of saving a few bucks on the case. The thing is, unlike a usb adapter cable you can buy later, I haven't seen any easy way to swap out the thumbscrews for captive ones. So I think it would be totally worth the extra buck or two in order to get that quality feature up-front, just like with some of the larger cases in the same carbide line.

5 out of 5 eggsWell ventilated

Pros: 60 bucks. Plus ten dollars off.

Well ventilated .

About 6 120/140 mm fan options
-----including an additional 200mm floor fan option I found recently (very perceptive :D )

A lot of room for graphics cards

2.5 slot facing the inside of the case that I also didnt find until recently

Cons: My mobo back cover doesn't fit quite right. I hear many people have this problem with cases and mobos sometimes. Nothing worth taking a star.

Other Thoughts: I'm used to 30 day rebate periods, I guess. Rebate was available 21 days after purchase and I missed the deadline :(

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing case. Truly great.

Pros: - Spacious, well thought-out layout
- Great cable management
- Fantastic fan mounting options (6 off the top of my head)
- Big enough to water cool
- Understated design

Cons: - I wish i could mess with it more? Honestly can't think of any

Other Thoughts: This case has been an absolute pleasure to build in. Everything fits. The packaging was great. High quality materials. Extra screws and rubber stoppers.

Will probably buy again if needed.

5 out of 5 eggsDeceptively big

Pros: The case is deceptively big inside. I'll keep it pretty short and sweet but there are no screws needed-for almost anything. There are 4 slots for notebook sized HDD's and at least 4 for desktop sized HDD's. You can snap in and out HDD's securely WITHOUT any screws, and they are VERY secure. I have a R9-270x video card which had no problems at all. Nothing rattles-no screws or fan noises-if any are VERY quiet. Hiding wires and cable mgmt. was really good/excellent. Both sides of the case slide off. Some people like the super bling of epileptic neon lights in their system-I really don't want my computer to detract from what I'm doing (or possibly give me a self-induced seizure) and the simple black with led power and HDD lights on the front was great. Airflow is great with an intake fan-then bottom mounted PS blowing up over the CPU and then and out fan at the top. I have an HTPC I made for media center/recording tv which is fanless and though I did my research and got quiet components besides the case (GPU, CPU, SSD) which I kind of lucked out on, this thing is quieter than the HTPC. I've probably built about 7 complete systems in my life and this is by far the best case I've ever seen when taken as a whole. Take all this into account then price it (currently 69$ w/ a 10$ rebate 08/27/15) for a total of 59$-I just don't see how it can be beat-are there better cases out there? I'm sure there always are but not anywhere near this price point-I'm SURE there are far WORSE cases for a lot more $$ too...As an after thought when I say screwless that does not mean COMPLETELY screwless-there were standoffs, etc, and it did come with an abundance of screws and anything I needed(which are mostly all still in the little baggies they gave me :)

Cons: there was one kinda wonky thing which was a little specific to me, I had only 2 usb 3.0's out the back, couldn't make use of 3.0 out the front due to my motherboard but just had to buy a cheap connector from the mb to the front 3.0 usb adapter maybe 2-4$ if I recall.

5 out of 5 eggsCorsair quality

Pros: this chassis is very well made. its sturdy without being expensive. the internals are on par with most cases at this price point. the hard drive cage is shorter and allows for massive GPU clearance.with the included 120mm fan there for uninterrupted airflow.

Cons: the first one i received was damaged the corner of the case was crushed in. newegg helped with that quickly.
