In the last 6 months we’ve been struggling to keep up with Corsair’s onslaught of product releases. The multi-channel hardware giant has been relentless in their passion to supply enthusiasts with the latest computer tech. Today’s review sees us delve into the computer case arena by looking at yet another release from Corsair, this time from the Carbide Series.

The Carbide Series 100R is a low-cost, entry level computer case which comes in two different versions – standard and silent. The standard version comes with a side window, fan mounts at the top and just one cooling fan whilst the silent version uses closed panels, comes with an additional fan, fan controller and noise reduction material. This case hopes to deliver on styling, features and cost but will it win our seal of approval today? Let’s find out!

Corsair on their 100R
Sometimes you need to build a monster rig that doesn’t look – or sound -- like one. Instead, you need a case that offers you the flexibility that installing your top-of-the-line hardware requires, but without all the visual spectacle of the more hardcore models.

The Carbide Series 100R Silent Edition Mid Tower case does exactly that. The sleek, understated design aesthetic looks like “serious business,” while the sound damping side panels, adjustable cooling fans, USB 3.0 support and tool-free access door all say “serious gaming power.” And it all comes at a price that states “serious value”.
