Corsair Carbide Series 500R Case Review

8 February 2013
  • Summary: Final Thoughts I’m going to say it again, Corsair has another great case on their hands. When it comes to cases their track record has been pretty amazing. I don’t think I’ve reviewed one of their cases that I had an issue with or that I did not like.
  • Pros: – Sleek design, – Room for 6 hard drives and 4 optical drives, – Both hard drive cages can be removed, – 4 included fans, – Fan controller and LED on/off switch
  • Cons: – Hard drive trays were a little weak

Corsair Carbide Series 500R Mid Tower Case

9 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Corsair may have another case on their hands that one could call water-cooler’s dream as well as being air-cooled friendly. The case is the Carbide 500R. One of the advantages the 500R has over the 800D is that it can be had for around $120 and comes in black or white.

Corsair Carbide 500R Review

20 February 2012
  • Conclusion: As with many cases that are watercooling-friendly, the Carbide 500R doesn't break any records as an air cooled case. However it's far from bad, managing to keep up with some of the high airflow cases we've tested. However its not in cooling that Corsair's case impressed us the most.

[Review] Corsair Carbide 500R

25 January 2012
  • Conclusion: Overall, the Corsair Carbide 500R screamed first class, starting with the white/black color scheme to help it stand apart from the swamped, predominately black, case market. The addition of the USB 3.0, fan controller, and the LED light switch are always a nice surprise.

24 January 2012
  • Summary: A while back we reviewed the Corsair 400R Carbide series case. The Carbide series being Corsairs entry level case lineup, is not the cheapest, yet still remaining affordable cases. However no cut backs on build quality, design and features are made.

Corsair Carbide 500R

28 November 2011
  • Conclusion: The front of the case is one plain design with a mesh style fan filter. On the inside of the lower part there is actually a metal filter in front of the fans, but it's quite difficult to remove if you'd like and it's probably not the intention by Corsair.

27 November 2011
  • Conclusion: This is a very nice case, with a pricetag of 140$ it might scare off some of the potential buyers. I would have liked to see a price closer to 100$ for this to be really able to compete with cheaper on the market, granted they don’t have the same features but with the economy right now people go for...

Corsair Carbide 500R

10 November 2011
  • Summary: Corsair has already managed to impress with the Carbide 400R chassis and the more potent 500R is no exception. It takes the already great 4-series Carbide chassis and improves on its cooling possibilities, adds a fan controller to adjust the rotation speed and give the user the possibility to remove...

  • Cons: A full $40 (40%) more expensive than the 400R, Dust can easily enter the system
