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

Corsair Carbide 500R Computer Case

Benchmark Reviews

  • 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 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...

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

Corsair Carbide 500R review

The Guru of 3D
25 October 2011
  • Summary: With the 500R Corsair is aiming at gamers with a stuffed PC, tucked full with hardware. For these users this chassis thus offers a wider range of cooling capacity, that and a little more flexibility over the 400R in terms of removable drive cages and fan controller.

  • Conclusion: Sidst vi testede Corsair kabinetterne var det 600T serien der lå omkring 1100kr i den specielle hvide klasse, og denne gang er det Carbide 500R i samme hvide model der står på bordet. Prisen her i starten af 2012 ligger lige under 800kr.

  • Summary: Il Carbide 500R completa nel migliore dei modi la fascia entry level dei case prodotti da Corsair, che mette così a disposizione dell'utenza un prodotto che colma qualche piccola lacuna riscontrabile sul 400R.
