Corsair Carbide Series 200R Mid Tower Review

Hi Tech Legion
3 February 2013
  • Summary: Corsair has designed a solid mid tower case with the Carbide Series 200R. I would consider the styling classic but the functionality is excellent. Corsair has combined budget pricing with features and quality that you would find on a more expensive case. The steel of the case is stiff and is painted with a black finish that does not scratch easily. The front bezel is made out of ABS plastic and is nice and thick, so there is no need to worry about parts breaking on it.

Corsair Carbide Series 200R Compact ATX Case Review

  • Excerpt: All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy and Corsair looks to remedy that with its Carbide Series 200R; or something like that. Outside of the motherboard installation, no tools required is the message Corsair is looking to get across about this compact size "mid-tower" case.

Corsair Carbide 200R

techPowerUp!
25 December 2012
  • Summary: The 60 USD/EUR price-range is probably the most crowded and hard fought case segments of the market. Corsair has successfully moved from their high-end Obsidian cases down to the high midrange with the Carbide family and, now, to the entry-level midrange with the Carbide 200R. That said, the most affordable case from Corsair does strip things down to the functional basics, but that is to be expected of a case in this price range.
  • Pros: Excellent assembly process, Extremely easy hard drive installation, Plenty of space for fans, Can hold all-in-one liquid cooling solutions, Plenty of room for large CPU coolers and long graphics cards, Nifty white power LED, Very good cable routing possibilities, Unique way to place up to four 2.5" drives within the case, Metal tension lock for ODDs are simple but effective
  • Cons: Multiple openings where dust can enter freely, No possibility to use the USB 3.0 connector for USB 2.0 based boards, Basic I/O, Tool-less aspects work very well, but you may want to drop a screw in to hold things down perfectly

Corsair Carbide 200R review

The Guru of 3D
24 December 2012
  • Summary: Corsair has a killer chassis in their hands with the 200R. With a 60 USD price tag you get a product that is aesthetically very pleasing (albeit taste is personal I agree). For that 60 bucks you receive a nice all black design chassis with mainstream features. There's plenty of storage space, it is tool free, you can do some nice cable management, fairly large graphics cards fit and sure there's plenty of options for cooling as well.

Corsair Carbide 200R Case Review: How Low Can You Go

AnandTech
15 December 2012
  • Conclusion: I feel like Corsair has ultimately acquitted themselves fairly well with this, their least expensive enclosure. I get nervous whenever a manufacturer relatively well known for producing quality hardware decides to chase the bottom dollar; we saw what that approach did when Lenovo took over the ThinkPad brand.

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: Just when you thought the Corsair line of case numbers couldn't go much lower, they drop the latest addition to the Carbide series of cases. Ever since I saw the 800D and pretty much every case since in the Obsidian, Graphite, Vengeance, or the Carbide series of cases, I have really liked what Corsair delivers in the chassis market.

Corsair Carbide 200R Mid-Tower

Pro-Clockers
20 November 2012
  • Summary: Corsair did an outstanding job with the Carbide 200R. It isn’t that often that you are grace with so many extras in a $60 PC tower. There are many cases in this price range to choose from and most of the time it comes down to features, looks, ease to build or simply company rep. and with the 200R you get all that plus some.

Corsair Carbide Series 200R

HEXUS

  • Conclusion: We're on a slippery slope, folks. If the current-crop of sub-£50 chassis can get so much right, are the premium alternatives anything other than a lavish expense? Granted, the Carbide Series 200R isn't as quiet as the Obsidian 550D, nor is it as attractive as the Graphite 600T, but it's less than half the price and still manages to get a lot of the basics right.
