Corsair Carbide Series 400R Graphite grey and black ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs A great case with ample room and airflow @ a good value! 07/03/2016

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 400R Graphite grey and black ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case

Pros: - Excellent airflow and fan placement
- Tons of space for modern hardware
- Easy access bays and nice carrying handle
- Heavy duty, solid
- USB 3.0 ports accessible from front

Cons: - Minimalist design, a bit plain (which I actually prefer)
- No side window

Other Thoughts: After years of reusing the same heat box, I decided I was long overdue for a new case. My top concerns were airflow and real-estate, without breaking the bank. Enter the Corsair Carbide 400R. If you're looking for a solid, modern case that is heavy on the things you need but light on the fluff (cosmetics), this will definitely fit the bill! There is plenty of space, it is well designed and has quick access to USB 3.0, headphone, mic and FIreWire ports on the front. The airflow is outstanding, featuring two front fans, space for side fans, and 140MM top fans and rear exhaust fan. My temperatures dropped over 20C with this case!! That says it all.

As far as the design goes, it is nice and sleek looking but nothing fancy and more of a "blend-in" design. It does have LED fans in the front, which is a pretty neat feature. I can say, If you're looking for something to show off your hardware with a nice big window or flashy design, you may want to look elsewhere. Other than that, all things considered, I got this thing at a great price and it offers everything I need and more. Highly recommended.

2 out of 5 eggs Not worth the cost of entry. Runs great for 6 months+ and then has major issues 06/13/2016

This review is from: SilenX IXP-76-18 120mm Case Fan

Pros: - Great airflow and very quiet (initially anyway)
- Thick enclosure brings it closer to your CPU or components for better cooling

Cons: - Begins to fail and rattle like crazy after around 6mo or so
- Short lifespan
- Overpriced and unreliable for the long haul

Other Thoughts: I was on the lookout for a good case fan that provided a high airflow, with minimum noise. I decided to pick this one up and loved it (at first). Around half a year or so later, the fan began to have issues reaching maximum RPM upon start-up. It would spin very slowly, struggle to gain speed and take its time performing at expectations. Finally, it would reach its speed and then rattle like crazy - now the loudest fan in my case. This thing just doesn't last and begins to fail in all respects. Starts strong, and finishes like garbage. You'll be lucky to get one years use out of it without these issues. I do not recommend.
