5 out of 5 eggs Corsair is it for budget\extreme builds 02/13/2014

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

Pros:

Aesthetics: beautiful design. whitish LEDs(on\off switch). nice size\shape. white on black paint job is nice

Size: fits all components I'll need. not too wide or tall but expanded areas to fit large coolers and cables. extra space in the top for liquid cooling radiators\fans.

Very low noise with 4 fans running. Even with fans on high noise isn't a problem.

Cons:

Fan controller: I still haven't found a case yet that comes with a really good fan controller. Lowest setting needs to be 0% and highest setting needs to be near 100%, not this 30%-75% I always see.

No other real problems. Top vent was slightly bent and protruding from the top but just flattened it between my hands and it fits fine.

Other Thoughts:

Have one gaming system in a Corsair 600T and it is also a wonderful case. Keeps everything very cool with it's 2x 200mm and 1x 140mm fans. Will be replacing that rig with this new 500R + new components soon and am sad to see it go.
Would probably have kept the 600T around but I don't like that the LEDs are always on. It also needs mounting position on side vent for 200mm fan so I can add liquid radiator to top and move that 200m fan to the side.
