Corsair Carbide Series 500R Case Review

ThinkComputers
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

  • Excerpt: We saw what $100 got with the 400R, now let's see what a little more of an investment and a white paint scheme does for the Arctic White 500R from Corsair.

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...
  • Pros: Excellent engineering quality, Excellent paint job, Additional 200 mm fan in the side panel (compared to 400R), Great external looks, Very well thought out internals, Parted HDD cages, so that you may remove one for long graphic cards, New and unique locking mechanism for ODDs, Excellent cable ma...
  • Cons: A full $40 (40%) more expensive than the 400R, Dust can easily enter the system

  • Conclusion: Yes, the Carbide 500R performed exquisitely. With four stock fans it rivals the best in cooling performance. Under extended stress in a cramped environment it kept CPU and GPU temperatures stable in a safe zone below 80 °F using the lowest setting on the fan controller.
  • Pros: Four stock fans: 2x 120mm front, 1x 120mm rear, 1x 200mm side, Many additional fan mounting options, All tool-less installation, Configurable hard drive cages, Multiple, wide, grommeted cabling spaces, Convex side panels for extra space, Excellent construction and style
  • Cons: Mediocre quality screws and threads, Could be a tad less expensive, PATA/IDE drives do not fit

  • Excerpt: We’ve seen Corsair expand from just memory products into many areas of the component markets, one of which is the chassis, or case, industry. And we’ve also had a chance to see the various cases, and the Carbide series has been very successful for Corsair.
