Still working on it, but it is almost done. I have to finish sleeving my 24 pin, fans and io cables. I need to find a different sli bridge too.

I bought a 300R biggrin.gif

I was in Microcenter with the 500R, 400R, and 300R all sitting next to each other. The simplest option would have been to go for the 500R as it has everything. The 400R I didn't care for the rounded edges and the non movable drive bays, as I didn't need all of them. For some reason I kept favoring the 300R. All the cases had/have a good deal pricing wise so this was the last factor in my decision making. The 500R was priced at $120 and the 300R priced at $67.

The design on the 300R is just stellar. Of course looks are all a personal preference but it also matched everything I was looking for. I needed a new case with the ability to comfortably use SLI or Xfire, mount fans in a variety of locations with no or minimal modding, mount the drives facing the rear to run cables out of sight, have excellent cable management, and be able to place the case in any location easily. It does all of these and looks good doing it.

I will be migrating my system over in the next few days and I will post a mini log of my adventure. The case just exhibits the industrial yet simplistic look that lets you feel good about the case. Build quality is fantastic.

The only cons are that I need to order the USB 3 to USB 2 adapter as it does not come with the case. I recommend Corsair does include this cable because of the market placement of the case. Pricing in the affordable bracket I would expect more customer's like myself with older hardware that does not have USB 3 capability on their Motherboards ( I know, get with the times right?).

Nice job with the Carbide series.

kind of excited.
just picked up my 400r and h100 from fry's. kinda stinks i cant put it together til tomorrow. i still need to pick up hale90 850. im so loving that psu.
could've gone to microc and picked up the 500r but i didnt want to wait until wednesday to get it and probably friday to get it all assembled.
2 things i dont like about the 400r:
1. no top exhaust fan. doesnt bother me because i have the h100 BUT my 212+ will now be sitting in its box waiting for a new build.
2. no filters on the side panel fan inlets. they're intake vents. why didnt you guys put in a filter george ? this isnt an oversight. its more of a way to save $1 on your end.

but overall, i really like my new case ! find out if i love it after im done throwing my hardware in it.

I just completed a build for myself using a 500r and I have to say it's an amazing case! The build quality and finish are great and there is plenty of room to work inside. The only complaint I have is that the top removable hdd cage was out of square making it difficult to remove and install. Although it was still completely functional.

The one thing that would've made this case perfect (for me personally), aside from the bent hdd cage, would've been a slide out MB tray. The reason being that I happen to be in a wheelchair and because I can't stand up it's difficult for me to reach down into the case while it's on it's side. That being said the 500R is still by far the best case I've worked with to date. I'm VERY happy with the case overall and am glad I chose it! biggrin.gifthumb.gif

Here is my 500R.
Yes, I know, too much tubes (but I need them that long) wink.gif
Yes, I know, too much dust redface.gif

The point is, I just want to share, maybe someone will use some idea, like I did when I saw Rognin’s build.
