Great case! Dust magnet :(

Gavin Calvano, Amazon
10 April 2014
  • Summary: Great case! Good stock fans, great q qfc çcairflow and super good looks. Cable management could be better but it is better than nothing or maybe I'm just bad at it. Lighting is cool I just wish it was offered in more colors. Ok the real problem is dust filters, there are none except for the bottom. If you get this great case I really recommend going onto frozencpu.com and get there custom made dust filters for the corsair 500r. They are so good at picking up dust.

Fantastic case, one defect.

John Snow, Amazon

  • Summary: Pros: Sharp looking, received plenty of compliments. Plenty of room, easily add upgrades. The fan speeds are easily controlled by a front panel toggle (you can also toggle the fan lights on/off). Plenty of room behind the motherboard for cable management. Cons: The black piece on top of the case (access for top mounted fans) has a cheap clip. It's designed so that you can press the top black cover and it will click in place.

A good starter case

Hayes Guidry, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a very nice case for a first build, it offers a large amount of cable management and cooling fans. It comes with 4 fans, 2 front, 1 side, 1 rear exhaust. The only fault in this case so far, the thumb screws on the back to tighten the case doors in place are already stripped, 3 of them are already stripped. There is lots of room for everything and it is a nice sized case.

  • Summary: This case is awesome in the way that it accommodates multiple fans, aswell as has plenty of room for various CPU coolers. It is on the bulky side though. keep that in mind... I also like the layout for the hard drives.

Nice case from Corsair, but with flaws.

Lance D. Ripplinger, Amazon

  • Summary: I have liked Corsair cases for client builds. They have a nice, sleek look, and none of the gaudy garbage. The Corsair Carbide 500R is the highest end case in the Carbide series from Corsair. The Carbide series targets entry level to mid-range case buyers. The line consists of: 200R, 300R, 330R, 400R and 500R and Air 540. This case features two 120mm fans in the front with blue LED's. The side panel features a huge 200mm fan with blue LED's as well.

Great case with a couple of quirks.

tsluss, Amazon

  • Summary: This case has been great for me because of the amount of "stuff" I have in it. The build quality is great and I love it's design. I purchased one of Corsairs H100 water coolers because it has the mounts for it in the top of the case and the combination is very effective. There are really only two negatives I've found so far. 1) I think there is a grounding problem with the front USB ports.

Very Nice Case

V. Law, Amazon

  • Summary: All the components are very high quality. The wire management system is excellent. There are only two complaints... the screw holes for the fans are not all properly aligned, and the case fans that come with the case is a bit loud.

great case overall

  • Summary: love every single feature. only gripe is the consistent opening of the reverse side panel. There isn't much room at all for cables once you start accumulating hard drives, especially if the cables aren't very bendable
