4 out of 5 eggsGreat!

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case

Pros: This case is everything it is advertised.

Cons: I would have liked the option for a windowed side panel for this case. I'm looking to do a custom windowed side panel. Also, the instructions are terrible . This case was for my first time build and when it was time to mount the Motherboard, I had a few questions that the instructions couldn't answer. Anyway I figured it out and it's all good.

5 out of 5 eggsFavorite case

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case

Pros: great design. massive side fan, as well as ease of access variable fan speed switch on front of case. Tons of room...oh yeah and

CABLE MANAGEMENT 10/10 seriously if you posses the type of "ocd" mind that makes you feel insane when things aren't properly in order, then you love the cable management setup within this case.

What i love about this case is it's perfect for a mega-$3000+ ultra pc build, but would also be perfect for a lesser 1300 build (my build budget)

Cons: more usb ports on front of case..although the actual total number of usb ports on the whole case is great.

Other Thoughts: would recommend to anyone ...corsair products are of high quality and worth every dollar.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Case

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case

Pros: Very aesthetically pleasing with ability to turn fan lights on/off
4x preinstalled fans with fan controller
Easily fits all hardware, very easy build
Plenty of room for cable management
Fits most dual rad liquid cooling solutions (using H100i)
Good accessory kit
Great job at keeping out dust

Cons: Unable to close panel if hard drive mounted in bottom drive bay
Not enough room between motherboard mount and top to install 240/280mm radiator with fans in push and pull configuration
Firewire port (an extra USB 2.0 or even eSATA would be preferable, but I knew going in I wouldn't use it)
Proprietary fan controller

Other Thoughts: Purchased this to replace an aging Antec 900 case as I wanted better cable management and the option to install dual radiator liquid cooling. I agree with other reviewers that the proprietary fan controller is disappointing, since it would be nice to have the ability to easily replace a fan if it fails and still use the controller. This case was sub 80 bucks at the time of purchase after MIR, which I did receive from Corsair. All my Corsair products have been top notch, and this is no exception.

4 out of 5 eggsLooks sweet, its big

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case

Pros: Looks great with room for all sorts of goodies.

Cons: Motherboard bottom screws didn't have a spot to mount. Fan speed is very audible on any setting but low. Top mount radiator was a bit of a process.

Other Thoughts: Took an egg off for the fans making noise, but overall the case looks nice and its doing a fine job. Also you can hear every noise inside so if your paranoid about pc noise like i am, it'll drive you batty.

4 out of 5 eggsBig and roomy inside

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case

Pros: Cable management is really easy with this case, while the inside is roomy, and good for airflow.

Cons: Top grille sticks, and can be difficult to open. It is as though the latch spring is too weak to fully push out the panel on the front, for easy removal. It's not a serious problem, but installing a couple of fans, or a radiator later, will not be as easy as it should be.

If not for that issue, I would give the case 5 out of 5.

Other Thoughts: I've replaced an aging Antec 902 case with this one. My system is all the happier for it, but I suspect that this case will live up to its full potential with a premium quality air cooler, given how roomy it is inside.

5 out of 5 eggsA great case

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case

Pros: * Good cable management
* Plenty of room for even large components
* More than enough optical drive bays
* Allows for plenty of HDDs/SSDs
* Allows for the installation of more fans
* Really pretty

Cons: * Only 2 USB ports on front
* My case only allowed 3 PSU screws to go in all the way. The fourth had a bit of trouble, but still went in enough for it to work.
* Another hole for a screw didn't line up with the one on my motherboard. The other screws still hold it in place rather easily, though.
* The side fan doesn't light up quite as well as the one imaged.

Other Thoughts: The pros definitely outweigh the cons here. It has space for pretty much anything you want to throw in, keeps your wires out of the way, and looks really good. The cons are really just trivial nitpicking.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case!

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case

Pros: Runs nice and cool
LED Control
Very quiet stock fans
Easy to build with
Cool color scheme
Durable design

Cons: Shipped with a small bend in a thumbscrew. Not a big deal, but the packaging for the case was not more than just a few styrofoam pieces to hold it in.

Other Thoughts: I'm glad I was convinced to pony up a few big ones for this great case. It does the job and is probably one of the best mid-tower in the market
