Product Description

Product Description

The 500R features outrageous cooling potential. Four included fans (2 x 120mm in front, a 200mm on the side, and a rear 120mm exhaust) cool your components, and USB 3.0, native SSD support, and eight expansion slots make it easy to build a rock-solid system. A removable hard drive cage means you can get more direct airflow over GPUs up to 452mm in length, and internal 240mm radiator support gives you tons of cooling flexibility. Captive thumbscrews provide easy removal of the side panels and our innovative cable routing makes your system clean and tidy.

From the Manufacturer


Serious airflow has never looked this good. The Carbide Series 500R has outrageous cooling flexibility: there's a 200mm fan mounted on the side panel’s mesh screen for extra GPU cooling, a multi-channel fan controller, and removable and relocateable hard drive cages. The ability to move and remove hard drive cages not only improves airflow — it also allows you to install graphics cards of up to 452mm in length.

Overview

Carbide Series 500R

Built for Builders.

The Carbide Series 500R shares vital DNA with the award-winning Corsair Obsidian and Graphite Series. They’re acclaimed for their ease of use and performance-oriented engineering, and this philosophy is abundant in the design of the Carbide Series.

Future-Ready.

Support for USB 3.0 and 2.5” SSDs is built-in. Two USB 3.0 connectors are provided on the front panel and connect directly to motherboards with compatible USB 3.0 headers. Integrated SSD support lets you install 2.5” solid-state drives in any of the hard drive bays, without having to deal with adapters.

Easy access.

Thumb screws on the side panels and tool-free drive installation mean that you’ll spend less quality time with your screwdriver, and the integrated dust filters can be quickly removed for easy maintenance.

Looking good, inside and out.

The beauty on the inside goes beyond the black-painted interior. Corsair’s innovative cable management system provides a straightforward way to route cables behind the motherboard, not across it where it can interfere with airflow and give your system a cluttered look. And since looks are an important part of any build, you’ll appreciate the ability to turn the front panel fan white LEDs on or off with the push of a button.

This is a great case all around. I was rebuilding my gaming rig and didn't want any of those corny gaming cases with the circus lights and the colored plastic moulding reminiscent of a nitro burning funny car at a redneck car show.

It's plain black, with white lights that you can turn off if you want to. Build quality is excellent, no sharp edges to cut you. It has EIGHT fan slots, you can design your airflow around your parts rather than the other way around. Lots of ventilation holes so hot air won't hang out in the corners and round your PCI cards. It's super spacious with fantastic cable management. If you run your cabling neatly, you'll have plenty of room to work in your case without scraping your knuckles or crowding your monster gaming GPU. I can work on almost any part of my system from the side panel without dismantling anything.

The stock fans that come with the system are the two front intakes and the large 200mm side fan, all of which are surprisingly quiet for stock fans. I bought high quality, quiet fans to use in the rest of the case, but kept the three stock fans. I have a closed loop CPU cooler and being able to mount the radiator on the top of the case, with a fan pulling frpom the outside saved a ton of room compared to my old case and the fan is dedicated to the CPU exclusively, rather than having it inline with the power supply ventilation or going out the back where it would crowd the water pump.

The removable drive cages were a must for me, I have solid state drives and I don't need 15 drive bays blocking my airflow. I removed the middle drive cage which allows the fist front intake fan to blow air right into my GPU intake. The lower drive cages can mount two SSDs per slot! I wish more manufacturers would start doing this.

Case is great but there are some cons with the total experience.

1. The packaging, the packaging is really not enough for those soccer players at UPS. The front/back/sides have no padding or protection. When I got my case I saw some dents in the edges of the box but thought it would be okay, I was wrong. The little plastic protrusion on the top filter part which allows the clicking in past was broken off (stuck it with epoxy and is now all better), there was a crack in the top plastic bezel under the mesh portion and there was a dent almost perfectly halfway along the side panel with the fan (it seems this is the weakest part of the side panel, I did fix it but you can still see it if you are really looking for it).

2. Integrated fan controller, it works as it should but you can barely tell the difference in the speeds. It would have been better if it was off/50%/100%. The airflow between mid and high in totally indistinguishable. I only notice a 1 degree Celsius difference in CPU and chipset and no change in HDD temp between low and high setting on the controller.

3. The fan LED switch, great idea horrible choice for switch, it has so much travel before it contacts that I am unable to press it without using my pinky's nail. The problem is further compounded by the shape used (if it was circular it would be easy to depress).

4. Inclusion of 1394 and not 2 extra USB 2.0 ports. I have never used 1394 over the years and every board that supports an internal header usually has a port on the I/O panel. Why did Corsair go this route is beyond me.

5. Power supply mounting, I'm really not sure who did the measurements for the ATX PSU mounting holes but 1 doesn't line up no matter the orientation (fan up/ fan down) of my PSU (a Corsair TX750 mind you).

The 500R is phenomenally good. I will start with the cons.

Cons:
1. Front panel over the dual fans is not an easy access removable filter panel.(why they did not include this is beyond me).
2. The 5 1/4" drive bay covers are a little tricky to remove.
3. Doesn't make me a sammich... that's all for the cons, now on to the good stuff.
Pros:
1. BIG space inside, plenty of room for anything your heart desires.
2. Cable management galore, offers the perfect amount of rubber grommets for wire routing. Also has tie down points.
3. Front loading, easy mounting/locking/removal system for all 5 1/4" drive bays.
4. 4 fans included. (3 that light up).
5. Self-contained water cooling option.
6. 8 expansion slots.
7. 2 USB 3.0's on the front I/O board.
8. Bottom rubber mounted PSU - also has an open face bottom with air filter. (true cold air intake for optimum performance from the PSU).
9. Bulges on side panels look great and add extra room for cable management - (I believe this is a must).
10. Removable HDD cages.

*I cannot stress enough on how important it is to research everything to the fullest before buying multiple component systems. Also, I did not include all pros for this case as you can find everything else that you need to know on the description of the item itself - although I will say that NEWEGG has a video review of the 500R which helped me with my decision.

On another note, this case is the perfect blend between style and functionality. The tray on top is a very nice touch, also having a front facing I/O board was a must for me. (I do not like top mounted I/O boards due to them clogging with dirt/grime/dust easier.
