Update 6/13/16
It's hard to believe that the Corsair Carbide series has been out for almost 6 years! I'm hoping to take some time and further update this thread topic with a bunch of the changes and newcomers to the product line.

I'll be reading this thread just like I do with the Obsidian and Graphite ones, so I look forward to all your feedback. Things you like, things you think could be better - all this stuff helps us with our future cases. We've gone from 2 cases at the beginning of this year to 7 cases now, and we have a lot of plans to extend the product lineup into new and interesting areas. Nothing is off the table.

So every post on these forums where somebody says "make the cables shorter" or "I like the way the side panels fit" or whatever helps me make 2012s products that much better.

The 400R looks like a winner based on the combination of its price and the pictures and reviews I've seen so far. I couldn't find any shots of the 500R beyond the generic exterior angled ones; when are you doing a photo shoot for it, George?

I'm hoping to see silence-oriented cases; something akin to a modern version of Antec's P18x cases but with better airflow, or Fractal's cases with Corsair designs. From what I can tell, Corsair already did a great job with the 650D's acoustics, but I imagine those characteristics augmented with sound deadening and a lack of holes. tongue.gif

My preordered 500R should be here the 21st. Got it at 129$ with free shipping and now it's eligible for $15 rebate. This may be the best $115 spent. Count me in. Can't wait.

Also, CorsairGeorge, my first comment would be please keep a good customer service team going. "Come for the pie, stay for the atmosphere"

Negative Ghostrider, the pattern is full.

If the Army and the Navy ever look on Heaven’s scenes; they will find the streets are guarded by the United States Marines.

can't make up my mind between the 600t and 500r so your reviews and pc will be my decision maker. and I don't even know the difference between the two other then one is thumb screw and one is latches.

I'm planning on picking up a 500r, is there any solid info on CPU cooler clearance? I saw George's post saying it was about 18cm but that was more of an estimate.

Deciding between an Archon or Silver Arrow to go with it, and if I can't fit an Archon (with the side fan still on) that makes my decision pretty easy.
