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 taking it out...

The Corsair Carbide 400R Mid Tower Case is a solid well made case with good overall cooling and expansion capacity. The position of the front fan light switch, above the cases reset switch; and the flimsy separator bar between the motherboards backing...

I've taken a look at the 500R that Corsair sent. The 400R is (judging by the way its modeled) most likely a stripped down all-black case. Time to see if the case is good for its money worth.1. Introduction 2. Packaging and Specifications 3. External...

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 the Cooler...

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...

The Carbide 400R is the most economical chassis from Corsair’s line but it is every bit as impressive as its premium priced siblings. For a steel chassis, the Carbide 400R is surprisingly light in weight and svelte-looking externally but spacious and...

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 tag. There...

The Corsair Carbide 400R gets a gold star for being the easiest case I've had the pleasure of working with thus far. The cable management is truly top notch, and ample interior room is available to accommodate most hardware configurations. The overall...

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 features...

The Corsair Carbide 400R is a PC case of the mid-ATX form factor that is worth your money if you are looking for a high-end computer casing which is high on functionality and yet does not demand too much space for itself....

Including features normally associated with expensive chassis on sub-£150 cases is Corsair's goal with the Carbide series. The newly launched Corsair Carbide 400R is the little brother of the more expensive Corsair Carbide 500R, released at the same...

First off, let me say that I started out as a budget builder. I'll always have a soft spot for lower priced components that provide as much performance or functionality as those in a higher price range. I still use an overclocked i3-530 in my...

Corsair started their enclosure business from the top of the market and worked their way down. Their first case was an expensive black monolith, the Obsidian 800D, popular for watercooling setups but less so for air. They fired a shrink ray at it...

this case is definitely a great option for someone looking in the $100 range. It looks good (leaving my opinion of the bezel aside), is capable of installing TEN FANS, has good wire management possibilities, and comes with Corsair’s famous build...

All of Corsair's cases are acclaimed for their included features, support, expansion and functionally, so it should come as little surprise that the 400R is yet another excellent case from Corsair that succeeds on all fronts. Starting with the...
