In our experience, Corsair has certainly made a habit of releasing awesome hardware. None of this awesome factor is lost even when they make an “affordable” product. Case in point: the Carbide 400R mid-tower chassis.My first impression...

The Corsair Carbide 400R is priced at Rs. 5,399 (MRP). It’s a little on the expensive side, but it’s a good value for money cabinet. It’s cheaper than the Cooler Master 912, which we reviewed earlier and finds itself well placed among...

It’s always tough to rank products in roundups like these, especially when each one has merit, as is the case with each of the products we reviewed here. Truly, depending on your taste and needs, you could purchase any one of these cases and be...

Corsair's successful entry into the case world has taken quite a few people by surprise including consumers and many competitors in the case market. With the first Corsair Obsidian series, the 800D, Corsair standardized many features that were only...

This is a very nice case, with a pricetag of 140$ it might scare off some of the potential buyers. I would have liked to see a price closer to 100$ for this to be really able to compete with cheaper on the market, granted they don’t have the same...

Starting with the build quality and design of the 400R the case comes across as one which should really cost much, much more. The chassis is solid, the paintwork well applied and the components used all of a high quality. The case is also incredibly...

While the Corsair Carbide 400R is one of the cheapest cases put out by Corsair, it’s certainly a high quality one. Then again, I wouldn’t really think of this case as a budget case, but rather an upgraded budget case, with a $99.99 price...

The Carbide series is yet another product area for Corsair to conquer, the price of the 400R sits at the 100 dollar mark, and also in Finland you can get the case for roughly hundred euros. Looking at the specifications and feature Corsair hasn't...

The Corsair Carbide Series 400R is a success for Corsair, as it delivers good cooling performance at a reasonable price point. There’s also plenty of cooling flexibility built in, thanks to the myriad fan mounts, as well as plenty of useful...
