5 out of 5 eggsSolid Standard Case

Pros: Very good quality for the money
Easy to route cables.
Plenty of fan and/or smaller water cooler options.
Simple clean design

Cons: None really. No cover for top to go over the top fan mounts if not using.

Other Thoughts: I had recently put together a build for my daughter using the Corsair 230T (also recommend) and was impressed with the build for the value. I was going to get the 230 for my wife but none had been in stock at the time so decided to try this 200.

It turned out to be a better choice for my wife due to a cleaner design at the loss of one of the mesh fan slots.


My only real complaint is that their isn't a cover to close off the top if not being used (or a SKU option without it). I just envision something dropping down in through these holes at some point.

This would actually be an easy solution for Corsair )and one that I would pay for) as they already have grommets on the top and side so a piece could be fabricated to pop into the grommets and still look clean.


Overall, for the price it is a great case for those not wanting something it to light up a like a Christmas tree and not look cheap on the desk.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case, better price.

Pros: This is the best case you can buy for $60. Everything is neatly organized, the screws, wire ties and grommets are in little baggies inside a cardboard box all marked. Little things like this impress me for this "budget" case. It has rubber grommets for mounting fans to the metal body of the case. The power supply is bottom mount. The front panel is USB 3.0. The power button is a good design and the light is not too bright.
The overall airflow is decent for a case this size, the only way it could be better was if the inlet fan (front) had more ventilation from the outside of the case, but this design flaw is quite common on cases that do not use a mesh front, and honestly I don't care for many mesh front cases because you always see the dust ring where the dust collects.
The case has a simplistic and very neutral look to it. I like this as most cases that look like a space ship seem ridiculous to me. The inside is painted black and the finish is great. It does fit an H100 or H100i on top just watch where you motherboard ram slots sit as this can affect whether everything clears or not. For me... they do not clear so I was forced to mount the fans externally, no big deal just got grill guards but still something to keep in mind.
The cable management is pretty good, enough grommets for most miniATX builds (like 2 outlet, 1 inlet from Pwr Supply)
The fans are fair, not great but they do the job.
The tool-less drive bays are good, plastic for the ssd bays, but still good none the less.
Overall a very well thought out package, exactly what I would expect at $80 but got it for $60.

Cons: Not a con of the case, but I wish motherboards would list somewhere some kind of spec to reflect where exactly the ram slots sit in relation to the top of the motherboard, so one could judge whether or not the ram will interfere with the top of the case's watercooling rig or not. I understand this may seem like kind of a niche thing for ppl who use AIO watercoolers top mount, but still it just would be nice to not have to "eyeball" it and end up getting it wrong.
On the same note of case manufacturers could tell us where the motherboard mounts in relation to the top of the case, that spec would be useful as well.

5 out of 5 eggsreally happy with the case

Pros: for the money, i don't think you can find a better case. love the lower height which is important for my desk bay.

Cons: fans are a bit loud but not horrible. wish there were covers for the all the open and unused fan ports.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked well for a newbie builder

Pros: This is my first build, and this case has worked well. It's relatively large - there should be plenty of room for a hyper 212 and a large graphics card when I decide to spend money for more upgrades. The backplate is cutout behind the motherboard so you can install coolers without removing the motherboard. The simple, straight exterior looks sharp by my living room TV. Front USB 3.0 ports will be nice for future peripherals. Installing my components and cable management was simple.

Cons: This is mostly my fault, but I initially tried to install my hard drive incorrectly and bent the tool-less holder in one of the hard drive slots to where it won't hold a hard drive now, so I had to install it in a different slot. If you're not an experienced builder, be careful with those spring holders.

Other Thoughts: Overall I am very happy with this case. I was a little worried I would have problems because I hadn't built a computer before, but this case has plenty of room to work in. I would definitely buy it again.

5 out of 5 eggsRoomy, well designed with plenty of fan mounting points.

Pros: I’ll admit that when I ordered the Corsair Carbide Series 200R I was extremely skeptical of its design, ease of access, and the overall accessibility I’d have to everything once installed inside. I’m very happy to say that worry was immediately put to rest upon opening the packing box and removing the case from within.

Side by side, next to the old case, a seven year old Cooler Master Centurion 5, the differences in usable space were imperceptible. Removing the side panel from the 200R proved the product page images do this case no justice! I have an Antec 1200 for my own personal gaming system, and I was completely floored by the amount of room in this case even relative to that behemoth. Installing 4 WD HDDs, a Lite-ON DVD burner, Soundblaster x-fi Xtrememusic w/ I/O box, an EVGA gtx660, and a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo cpu cooler in this case was going to be one very easy task.

The MSI Z97 motherboard I installed sports 90 degree SATA ports, (though 2 additional ports are straight up), this design makes it easier to install your SATA devices when you are also installing lengthy video cards. In the older case, it was very difficult to plug/unplug SATA cables with the motherboard installed, as there was little room between the motherboard sideways SATA ports and the HDD enclosure. In this Corsair 200R, there was more than enough room to easily insert the SATA cables with the motherboard already installed. The back panel cutouts also allowed easy cable routing, making for a clean looking installation, which in turn allows for excellent air flow.

The CPU cutout is great as well, especially considering I used the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo cpu cooler. Install the motherboard, and installation of the mounting bracket becomes a breeze. Without the cutout, this installation becomes somewhat of a hassle, not that it’s too difficult, just nowhere near as easy as when having the motherboard already installed, upright, and both sides easily accessible.

The included 2 fans are adequate enough for overall cooling, but you have the option of adding at least 4 additional fans if you so choose. Being an owner of the Antec 1200 with its top mounted 200mm cooling fan, I was pleased that this 200R has two installation spots for top mounted 120mm fans. We all know heat rises, and the amount of heat dissipated through the top of my Antec 1200 keeps my i7-3820/gtx670 FTW system cool even during hardware stressing situations (i.e. Highest settings while running Battlefield 4, Rome II, The Witcher 2, etc).

Thumbscrews make it super easy to install drives and expansion cards, remove and replace side panels, and save you a trip to the toolbox for that good old Philips screwdriver… though I did need that during this build for installation of the PSU and motherboard… but for future component replacement of drives and/or expansion cards, no tools required!

Cons: It would have been nice if the case came with at least one top mounted fan. I have a few extras lying around, as I’m always building systems, but I’d guess most customers would probably have to purchase an extra fan or two, and chances are, it would be after they opened the box and realized it only comes with a couple fans (although it does say so in the product description, I’m not implying anything to the contrary). Also, the inclusion of extra fans would increase the price, which at the current $70 is an excellent value, but still on additional top mounted fan would have been much appreciated.

Regarding filters, I really wish case designers would make them EASILY removable for cleaning. I should be able to either just pull them out from the side (regarding front installed filters), or open the front and pop them out. (The Antec 1200 requires removal of the drive cages, a 24 screw removal process!) This case makes it much easier to clean the air filters, not as easy as it should and could be! Applying aftermarket filtering material is still the best option and it simply should not have to be.

Other Thoughts: In nearly 30 years of building and upgrading systems, this is one of just a few computer cases I’ve been extremely pleased with, especially when factoring in the price of the unit. I’ll definitely be buying more of these for future builds for my kids, family, friends, and customers.

Some complaints of fan noise in a few reviews I read before purchasing... my kid mentioned how incredibly quiet the system was after we built it a couple days ago. Hopefully, it stays that way over time, we'll just have to wait and see. (currently only stock fans installed, with a Corsair HX850i PSU and CM Hyper 212 EVO 1 fan cpu cooler)

2 out of 5 eggsIt's great but...

Pros: Fantastic case for the price

Cons: Audio does not work correctly on the front port. I have to wiggle my plug a bit if I want audio through both sides of my headphones. Does not have a speaker either... odd...

Other Thoughts: For 40 bucks? Eh...

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

We're sorry to hear about your audio jack causing issues with your headphones. If you're interested, you can request a replacement for the front I/O panel and this should resolve the issue with the audio jack. For a replacement, please contact us by submitting a ticket at corsair.force.com or calling us at 888-222-4346 and we'll be more than happy to help you.

Thank you,

2 out of 5 eggsGrounding/Static Discharge Issues - Not good case for dry climate

Pros: Case is a nice basic case.

Cons: Major Grounding issues. I don't know the order that Corsair used for assembling the case, but 4 of the sides were insulated from ground (Front, Top, and Sides). This becomes a huge issue in dry climates where each side can build a static charge and discharge. Once I got it all assembled, it would randomly reboot and speakers would pop. Spent 2 hours sanding off paint and getting 3 sides grounded. Once all sides are grounded speakers stopped popping and computer stopped rebooting randomly.

Other Thoughts: Save Time and headache -- Get a different case

5 out of 5 eggsNice case

Pros: Nice layout, plenty of room, more that enough venting.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: First time I do a build with a bottom mounted power supply. I like the toolless idea. wires are easily routed behind backplate to components in case. I added 2 extra fans in the side and fabricated filters with a/c foam. keeps dirt out and components stay cool.. I don't game, but nothing ever gets above 40 *C when streaming movies and running multiple apps. I have an Asus M5A99FX mb with AMD FX8350,and no issues.
