Hi everyone, usually just a lurker here but I couldn't resist posting photos of my new build! Went together really well for the most part, seems like a really nice case.

Hello guys, I'm thinking about getting the Corsair Carbide 400R black this weekend or monday, the only thing that I wish it had is one USB 2.0 in the front + the 2 USB 3.0. Any pros and cons about this case and how's the air flow?

Can I also keep my computer bay and tuck the wire back even if i had a non-modular PSU or would it be easier to have a modular PSU?

I was just down at Microcenter checking out a 400R and just wanted to point out a couple things I found less than great.
I'ts a great looking case, no question, but it looks like they skimped on the materials used to keep the price down.
For those that own one, are the doors really sticky and rather flimsy? the one I saw was. I had to really yank on them to get 'em off and putting them back on wasn't very smooth.
They use some very thin guage steel in some critical areas. The motherboard tray and rear panel have alot of flex. Also the 5.25 drive cage is also very thin, flexible.
I've never owned a Corsair case so forgive me if I seem over critical. The front panel fan and drive bay filters are poorly designed in my opinion, I couldn't see bending that mesh for cleaning.
Lastly and perhaps most importantly, the interior finish seems very fragile. I'm looking at this display model that's only been on the floor for a couple days and could see some chips, bare metal.
I wanted very much to buy one, but no dice, not up to my standards.

Even if thats the case on the 500R it will still be a upgrade for me, Maybe the 500R is a bit better in some if not all areas that you stated.

I expect it to be as it costs £20 more than the 400R tongue.gif

I currently own a thermaltake xaser VI It cost only £10 more than the 500R currently costs (£105 over here) and even though the side panel's are quite solid on my case, Cable management is bad, all the plastic eventually breaks off and i have the fan clips for whatever fans i use that will also break if i change fans again, The motherboard tray needs soldering on some points to fix it and its just pretty poor overall. not to mention it weighs 18KG possibly about 20 with all my stuff in.

Still, Even if it is flimsy or that its the only good case on the market at the moment. More people should move to 140mm fan mounts, i hate anything bigger.

I agree with you about the 400r front filtering as I ascertained that just from photos of such and commented as such in this thread. I already am doing the same type cleaning with my Cooler Master 690 II Advanced and HAF 912 cases and will not purchase such type filtering design ever again in my next cases.

smile.gif Thanks for showing me that however in the way the front fan is mounted on/inside part of the chassis in my 690 II Advanced that wouldn't quite work besides it's a 140mm and my HAF 912 wouldn't go with the 200mm fan up there.biggrin.gif
