Intro

We’ve reviewed a couple of Corsair’s cases in the past, and while they’ve been excellent products, they’ve also carried premium price tags. Now Corsair has set its aims at the mainstream market with their new Carbide series cases. Bringing the price tag closer to the $100 mark sure makes the case more tempting to the average user, but the big question is whether or not Corsair has managed to still maintain their high standards and all the features that made the earlier cases so great? Let us see!

 

Package & Specifications

 

Corsair Carbide 400R - Quality enclosure for price-conscious shoppers
 

Specifications:
  • Form Factor: Mid-tower
  • Dimension: 20.5” x 8.1” x 19.8”
  • Supported motherboards: ATX, mATX
  • Materials: Steel structure with molded ABS plastic accent pieces
  • Expansion Slots: 8
  • Drive Bays: four external 5.25", six internal 3.5"/2.5"
  • Cooling: six 120mm/140mm fan mounts and four 120mm fan mounts (two 120 mm intake and a single 120 mm exhaust fan included)
  • Front I/O: 2x USB 3.0, IEEE1394, Headphone, MIC
  • Power Supply: ATX (not included)
  • Warranty: Two year

The case arrived to our test packed in a plain cardboard box with some drawings printed on both sides. Also the specifications and list of special features are present, so overall the box is informative enough.

Looking at the specifications it’s a mid-tower case made of steel and plastic. For expansion there are plenty of 5,25” and 2,5/3,5” drive bays, eight expansion card slots and heaps of optional cooling. That’s total of ten 120/140 fans in a mid-tower case! As standard the case only comes with three fans, but even this should be enough for most.

 

Bundle

The bundle is more limited than on the earlier cases we’ve reviewed, but still packs all the necessities and also some extras. There’s an USB3.0-adapter for hooking the front panel connections to an older USB2.0-header and also some zip ties and anchors.
