Today we take a look at the Corsair 500R computer case that is included in their Carbide series. This has room for a lot of fans, radiator in the top, space also for bigger videocards, and PSU’s.
Well lets not waste more time but get on with the review to see what type of quality we can expect from this 140$ case.

The case comes packed in this brown cardboard box with explanation of the features. You will find a slip with the same information inside the box.
We got the white version of the case that has black mesh grills on the top, front, and left side.
The left side has a mesh panel on the side and beneath it a huge fan. You can place several smaller fans all over the sidepanel since there are pre-drilled holes for fan mounting.
On the top front part of the case is a small tray where you can store various smaller items.
