Corsair Carbide 100R

★★★★★
Verdict: The Corsair Carbide Series 100R is offered in two different variants which has helped them take aim at two different target markets.

  • I/O panel easily accessible with two USB 3.0 ports
  • Protected dust filter for the power supply
Cons: 
  • Cramped interior
  • Small housing width means reduced space for CPU cooler and cable management
  • Low material strength
  • Cable management can be restrictive
  • No HDD decoupling
  • no tool-free installation of expansion cards

Corsair Carbide 100R

★★★★★
Verdict: Earlier this year Corsair announced what would be their most affordable computer case to date, the Carbide 100R. Selling for a price of just $50, without the need for rebates, should spark the interest of budget builders.

new build

★★★★★ 2.0
Verdict: perfectly adequate for non-gaming system although ended up changing the fans. Not that impressed by the switch at the back to control fans so took whole lot out and fitted new fans. Hard drive carriers plastic and not very substantial.

Corsair Carbide Series 100R Case Review

★★★★ 3.5
Verdict: So you sold that first Kidney to buy the newest and highest priced video cards, CPU and Motherboard.
Pros: 
  • – Paint job is excellent
  • – looks are classic Obsidian
  • – panel and buttons are well positioned

Corsair Carbide 100R

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: Corsair, or Corsair Microsystems as they were originally named when established back in 1994 started out as a developer of Level 2 Cache modules for OEMs. Intel eventually incorporated the Level 2 Cache into their processors which is when Corsair start to focus on DRAM modules.
Pros: 
  • - Great performance
  • - Stylish aesthetics
  • - Good cable management
  • - Comes equipped with a fan controller
Cons:

Corsair Carbide 100R Silent review

★★★★★ 3.0
Verdict: For 50 to 60 USD Corsair has a nice little offering with the 100R, certainly its not a grand product or anything, in fact it's quite a bit of metal and plastic with somewhat common looks. The 100R however does shin in its price range thanks to a very decent feature-set.

Corsair Carbide Series 100R Silent Edition Review

★★★★ 3.6
Verdict: There are certainly lots of things the Carbide 100R Silent Edition does right. It takes much of what was good about the Spec-01 and the exterior is, as we're sure you'll agree, much improved. With dust filtering, dual USB 3 ports, fan control and a removable HDD cage, the 100R is well-featured.

Corsair Carbide Series 100R Silent Edition

★★★★★
Verdict: The evolution of PC hardware is such that today's more powerful components don't run as hot or as loud as you might think. It wasn't that long ago that building a truly high-end rig required careful planning for lavish cooling solutions installed inside formidably-sized enclosures, but modern builds...
Pros: 
  • Well suited to a budget build
  • Built-in fan controller
  • Sound-dampened throughout
Cons: 
  • Struggles with high-end hardware
  • Can feel constrained on the inside
  • Cable management is tricky

Warning! May not be compatible with radiators and large air coolers!

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: The inside of this case has lots of space despite being small on the outside. The MB tray sits flush with the back of the case which frees up about 1/2" of space by moving the lip that your PCI cards mount to on the outside of the case.
Pros: 
  • - Price - Light weight
  • yet sturdy - Unique design maximizes internal space in a smaller external case
Cons: 
  • - Unique design makes it incompatible with lots of cooling solutions
  • - Unique design makes installing long GPUs frustrating

Good budget case

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: As my first case to ever build a pc, it was really good especially at the price point. I got mine for $50, and it comes with one fan and support for 3 more in the front and 2 at the top. Only downside is no psu shroud, but you can only get so much at $50

Corsair Carbide 100R Silent Edition Review

★★★★★
Verdict: The Corsair Carbide 100R comes in two distinct flavours. The review sample we'll be looking at being the Silent edition of the case as opposed to the slightly cheaper version which comes with a side window but minus and front fans.

Good: Cable Management Soundproofing Looks Nice Bad: Power Switch is Hard to Find Flimsy Case Panels Very Flimsy Plastic Hard Disk Holders Terrible Airflow and Heat Dissipation Very Tight Inside (Eg.

"Silent" edition is a big stretch.

★★★★★ 2.0
Verdict: Not a terrible case, just average. However, I'm seriously disappointed with how much noise escapes considering it's branded as silent . It's honestly just as noisy with the panels off as with them on so the sound dampening lining isn't doing anything.
Pros: 
  • Small for a mid tower and not flashy (strengths for me
  • maybe not for you Has a routing panel for cable management Physical toggle for fan speeds (3 settings) Not many openings which will reduce dust build up Can fit 3 fans (2 front
  • 1 back).
Cons: 
  • This thing is NOT silent
  • Not even with fans on lowest setting.Very disappointing Very little room between cable routing panel and side panel, really struggled to get the panel back on and the cables are definitely all jammed up in there.

Corsair Carbide 100R

★★★★★
Verdict: Corsair has delivered two very attractive cases for casual enthusiasts and DIYers, each geared towards a different need. Those who have no problems with noise will really love the vanilla Carbide 100R for its huge transparent side panel - something that has till now been available only on much more...

"Great case, cable management is a bit tricky."

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: Maybe its my cable management but I had a lot of trouble putting the back panel on after routing the cables, with a semi modular cable though I suspect this would be much easier

Corsair Carbide 100R

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: I purchased this case for a friend. It's okay for the price, but I would look for something else. It's hard to work in that case and hard to manage cables to make it look clean. 8 pin mobo power cable has to go on top of RAM, cant hide it behind.
Pros: 
  • - Cheap
  • - Good looking
  • - Sound absorbing panels
Cons: 
  • - Hard to work inside
  • - Big CPU cooler hard to install
  • had to bend the case a bit to make it fit
  • - No hole for 8 pin plug mobo

Corsair Carbide Series 100R Mid-Tower Case, With Window , Features Front USB3.0, Maximum GPU Length: 414mm

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: Wanted a plan and basic case with a clear side that supports Optical Drives. This is what it is. Super affordable (cheap) easy enough to work with. The case just barely fit a Cool Master Hyper 212 X CPU Cooler. Only negative is the cable management for Sata/Power for the Hard drive cages.

Verdict: If your looking for a case with a budget this is the one for you. Nice acrylic side panel. Just wish there a psu shroud but no complaints for the money.

Very nice case, practical, stylish and functional

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: The case is well designed, if setup correctly you can route all the power and SATA cables under the motherboard which both improves airflow and keeps it looking tidy through the windowed side pannel.

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: Exactly as expected for a Budget case; well laid out. Surprisingly good airflow even while using only the included fan! LOTS of room avaible for future upgrades; fan watercooler, hdd, video - ample space. Window (plastic) was very clear, just big enough to show off all the goodies!
