Carbide 500R Midi Tower Case - Black/White (CC-9011013-WW)

Want even more outrageous cooling flexibility? Step up to the 500R. It adds a 200mm fan mounted on the side panel’s mesh screen for extra GPU cooling, a multi-channel fan controller, and removable and relocateable hard drive cages. The ability to move and remove hard drive cages not only improves airflow — it also allows you to install graphics cards of up to 452mm in length.
Support for USB 3.0 and 2.5” SSDs is built-in. Two USB 3.0 connectors are provided on the front panel and connect directly to motherboards with compatible USB 3.0 headers. Integrated SSD support lets you install 2.5” solid-state drives in any of the hard drive bays, without having to deal with adapters.
The beauty on the inside goes beyond the black-painted interior. Corsair’s innovative cable management system provides a straightforward way to route cables behind the motherboard, not across it where it can interfere with airflow and give your system a cluttered look. And since looks are an important part of any build, you’ll appreciate the ability to turn the front panel fan white LEDs on or off with the push of a button.

- Side panel with mesh fan mount locations
- Dimensions: 20.5” x 8.1” x 20”
- Four 5.25” drive bays
- Six 3.5” hard drive bays with 2.5” compatibility
- Eight expansion slots
- Supports most 240mm dual radiators (15mm spacing)
- Six 120mm/140mm fan mounts
- Four 120mm fan mounts
- Front I/O Ports: 2 x USB3.0, 1 x FireWire, 2 x Audio
- Two-year warranty

Very good case

I've had this case for well over a year now and it continues to be very good. Having 2x2.5" storage drives and a DVD Drive up top allows me to remove all the 3.5 bays which is nice feature. The fans it comes with seem very quiet, and have 3x speed settings and LED on /off options and I generally concur with what others have said about it having good airflow etc.

I only gave four stars for a couple of reasons:

The front panel and fans result in a lot of excess cabling that can get in the way a lot and is hard to keep tidy;
The ridge that boarders the motherboard area (allowing the motherboard to appear flush with the case) makes some of the SATA and USB3 ports inaccessible on my z87 sabretooth;
I can't fit my H100 up top under the black shroud; I have to have it off. This is with the fans hanging under the mount and the H100 on top of the mount;
It is pretty ugly; I went from a Betfinex Shinobi which is a subtle, classy middle sized atx case to this monstrosity;
It would have been good to have a SATA port of some kind in the random tray up top; otherwise the only function of this tray is to collect dust.


Amazing Case

I recently had a PC built by Over clockers. I decided to make some changes to the build and I chose this case. I can safely say I am not disappointed. This case is amazing, It has dust filters inside controllable fans and plenty of space for my water cooling system. I have plenty of space left inside the system to expand. I have room to fix another 290 graphics card and cable management is made so much easier. I would defiantly recommend this case as its worth the money and you will not be disappointed.


Truly Mind blowing

So I've been looking around for a while for a good cool case that will accommodate a new motherboard - the asus maximus v formula. It fits perfectly in the case - i was worried about it not fitting. although some sata connectors are inaccessible because of the grooves in the metal. Still there are 3 ports that are 100% accessible.

The airflow in the case has fascinated me, 2 fans included at the front of the case (white leds), one side panel large fan (white led) and the rear exhaust fan. On the front panel you have the option to speed up the fans (3 options, slow/medium/fast). On the slowest setting it cools beautifully and yet cant even hear a thing. You also have a button which allows you to turn of the leds which is good if you are going to leave the pc on overnight.

This case offers so much room, i've got the motherboard as mentioned, an asus gtx660ti, a 750w bequiet psu, 2 ssds - its good that you can remove some of the disk trays.

Overall i highly recommend for the price! :

Really amazed

Hands down...this is by far the best Midi Tower Case I have ever owned. Prior to that I had NZXT Rogue, Cooler Master Gladiator 600 for couple of weeks, then I switched to Antec 1200.
I have been thinking about getting repl. case for my Antec 1200 Twelve Hundred (2011) for the past couple of weeks. I was also thinking about waiting for Corsair Vengeance C70 to become available at the end of June'12 because it has similar fan config. compared to 500R. I couldn't wait... I was fed up with my Antec config. and constant problems with dust and believe me I keep my room tidy. This case has way better cable management system in place, fan mounting points and location are spot on, HDD trays and accessibility also way better than on Antec1200, quality of components incl. screws is very good. For water cooling freaks and people liking "midi config." it's a great solution. Thank you Corsair for developing this case.

Lovely case!

All round, the case is excellent, loads of room, removable HDD cages, space at the top for 2x 120mm fans, or a H100. Great cable management.

Well worth the money!

Awesome case

Arrived today only ordered thursday :), and what can i say apart from WOW, its awesome! I'm running a Corsair 800w non-modular powersupply and worried about cable management, and this thing hides all my wires, its solid, air cooling is fabulous, i have 8 fans in this and two on the radiator. I feel i have ripper corsair off :) thanks Overclockers once again :).

Bloody great case

Bloody Great case.

Great Airlfow

Great build quality

Lots of room for cable managment and lots of thumbscrews (which are done up bloody tight to start with)

The removable HDD bays are a great feature.

The 4 free fans are great and even with my HD6950 going full blast on crysis 2 i can't hear it

Comes with all the screws you could possible need

only downside is the LED on the power button is super bright so unless you intend to cover it up you wont be leaving this running overnight

Great Case

This case has excellent build quality as is expected with Corsair products, it was easy to assemble and has more than enough room for cable management.

It looks great as well, with the LED's on it just looks amazing.

Overall this case is great and at it's price point it's a really good buy.
