Review of: Corsair 400R
By: XxVaptex467Xx


Corsair over the years has become one of the biggest name brands in the computer industry. This Corsair 400R shows exactly why they are.

Corsair put a lot of effort into creating a amazing midsize case i can tell with amazing finish, layout and the design. The whole product is very clean and has no design defects that i can notice on my case and any other 400r case i used for customer builds. The exterior of the case is very sharp looking and does not favor a side. This case is both great for gamer builds and work builds.

The interior is what i call vaptasic. The Hard drive cage is very well built and includes a place to place the hard drives. Also included is holes on the hard drive holder for SSD mounting so people will not have to go out of there way to mod it so they can hold a SSD. Another point of this case is the rubber grommets and the cable management. This case has a rubber grommets which is a huge + for cable management. Another thing that is amazing is the back panel has a huge bump to help fit cables without having to push the panel down because the cables are to fat. Overall with the # of fan spaces and the cable management this is probably one of the nicest and easiest cases i have ever used to build rigs with.

The only Con of the case is while using E-ATX there is a possibility that the bottom row of sata connections on the motherboard might be hard to get to without modding.

Pros: Unmatched cable management, 9 fan bays, more than enough room, sturdy well thought out construction.

Cons: Rubber fan grommets are not optional, no dust cover for side fans.

OVERVIEW

This case is by far one of the best in class cases out there, rivaling it's older brothers the 500R and the 600 series respectively, it only forgoes some of the minute features that the 500 and the 600 series tout. The 400R is nothing to scoff at, it is a high end case, period. Corsair is relatively new to designing cases and they have decided to hit the ground running with their new line. Instead of just pumping out mediocre cases at a quick build rate, they decided to focus mainly on the higher end market, a somewhat risky move for a company, that at one time, had not a name for itself in that section of the market. The cases they design are well planned and thought out. The advanced cable management system alone is enough to tell you that these people didn't just come up with this idea over brunch. Their cases do have a sort of hand crafted feel, making it hard to believe that they rolled off of some mechanical assembly line. The 400R, 500 and 600 series are the Jaguars and Mercedes of the computer world, but their newest creation, the 400R, is set at a price that will cater to the wallet conscious gamer or enthusiasts. Its evident that when you purchase a case from Corsair, you are dealing with a company, not merely looking to take your money, but a company that radiates pride in the quality of each of its cases.
