Corsair, a designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC hardware market, today announced the Carbide Series SPEC range of gaming PC cases in three models: the SPEC-01, SPEC-02, and SPEC-03. Characterized by aggressive styling, modern features, superior air cooling, and expandability, the SPEC range offers everything gamers need from a case and nothing they don’t.
Most case manufacturers out there make conventional PC cases, meaning they fit the traditional form factors and are not all that different inside. Well Corsair has changed things up a little bit with their Carbide Series Air 540, which is a cube-style case, but it actually fits a full-sized ATX motherboard and components. This case features a dual-chamber design that not only helps with better cooling, but makes installation much easier. This case has actually been out for some time, but Corsair recently announced the white version of the case so that is what we are looking at today. Will this be the case for your next build? Read on as we find out.
I’ve said this before, but I am going to say it again…Corsair has really made a name for themselves over the past few years. Not that long ago we only knew them for memory and now they are a top name when it comes to power supplies, cases and gaming accessories. Their entry into the case market was great and every Corsair case that I’ve reviewed I’ve enjoyed. There really has not been much I have not liked about Corsair cases. They have unique designs, good cooling and none of the unneeded crap we find on so many other cases. Today we are taking a look at the top case in their Carbide Series the Carbide 500R. This mid tower case features a sleek design, 4 included fans, USB 3.0 and 2.5-inch hard drive support, a fan controller and much more. Did I mention this case has a MSRP of $129.99. Let’s check it out!
Today we’ll be checking out one of Corsairs latest cases, the Carbide 400R. Most people know Corsair for their memory products, but in recent years they have converted over to Cases and other products. Today I’ll be checking out my first Corsair case. It includes support of up to 10 fans, future technologies and large components. Its sleek design not only looks good, but is functional as well, which is great for cable management and cooling. Read on further to see what else this case has in store for under $100.
Today we are doing another case unboxing! This time we are taking a look at the Corsair Carbide Series 400R Mid Tower Case. This case is Corsair’s first sub $100 case so it will be interesting to see if Corsair can still bring in their quality at that price. This case does have room for PCI-E cards of up to 316mm in length, and even room for a full 240mm radiator. It also features USB 3.0, 2 included fans, and many tool-less systems. Read on to check out our unboxing and overview video!
