5 out of 5 eggsWind tunnel with black hole features!

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case

Pros: Everything about this case just. HUGE side fan with 2 big fans on front and not to mention the option to have the lights on or off and the fan speed on the front. plus you can add up to 4 more 120mm fans and they all have dust filters.

Cons: More color options would have been cool but I'd rather have quality every time!

Other Thoughts: Amazing

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case!!!

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case

Pros: The best case I've ever built with. Plenty of room, and easy to work on. I added 2 fans to the top, and it cools extremely well. Only took about 3 weeks to get my rebate, easiest rebate I've done in a long time.

Cons: None whatsoever!!!

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this case. If I have need for another case, I'd get another of these.

5 out of 5 eggsa really good pc case

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case

Pros: has really nice ventilation, simple yet stylish design, big enough space tall gpus, easy manuverability for when adding/replacing new parts or cable managing, enough room for liquid cooling and much more.

Cons: non at all

Other Thoughts: just a small question, what is the deal with that plastic area at the top of the case? it lookes like a tray of some sort, there isnt any indication on the manual or anything to point out what that area on top is meant for, the whole time owning it, just used to as a tray of somekind to hold any screws i need for moving things around and or other junk that fits in it, if it really is meant to be a tray for convienience for when removing part so that you dont lose any screws, then i just answered my question, but id like to atleast know so i dont misuse that area at anytime, but besides that every about this case is perfect! and id buy another of this model for when it eventually breaks down, i do really enjoy all the fans it came with those are really silent yet keeps the pc cool which is a very big plus along with it being very spacious. besides that i really enjoy it, id recommend it to anyone who wants a mid tower case.

1 out of 5 eggsCorsair used to be a reputable company

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case

Pros: It's a decent enough case; big, holds tall cards, reasonable room inside, and the white color is cool.

Cons: Sleazy rebate conditions. Reputable companies ask you to send in the rebate form/proof of purchase within 30 days of the order date, but not Corsair! Corsair now gives you only 21 days from the order date (given normal ground shipping time, that means only about 2 weeks from the date you receive the case). I'm sure one of their beancounters decided that customers who didn't read all the rebate fine print right away (like me :( ) would miss the early date and so lose their rebate.
You saved $20, Corsair, but you lost a loyal customer who had purchased over a dozen of your cases/power supplies over the last decade.

Other Thoughts: The physical case is fine, but it's hard to trust any warranty or other claim by Corsair, given their use of sleazy tactics to try to trick customers out of their rebate.

4 out of 5 eggsA case is a case, hard to have a bad one.

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case

Pros: -large fan cools hot running GPU's
-Great airflow
-Great included fans
-Dynamic (can remove HDD bays/ optical drive slots)
-Plenty of cable management space
-Rubber feet hold on the desk firm (no sliding)
-Fan filters over front and top fan holes(kinda coarse), and fine filter on bottom for PSU
-lights are a nice added touch

Cons: -Cables could have better labeling
-Large fan on side can be a bit noisy
-Instructions ARE NO HELP WHATSOEVER (Its like a picture book; and a non detailed one at that)

Other Thoughts: -Overall great

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case

Pros: Lots of room, great cooling and quiet.
I like the feature being able to install different size hard drives without investing money for adapters

Cons: none to speak of yet.

Other Thoughts: This case was a vast improvement over my previous case. It offered a lot more space than the previous, and on this one, I do not have to remove everything to install a hard drive. Wire routes are great, but can become congested if you are not careful.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Case

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case

Pros: Light and Sturdy,
Roomy and looks amazing.
Great airflow and quiet.

Cons: Backside connectors against the hard drives can be a tight fit without the right angled SATA cables.
Did not come with the USB 3.0 -> 2.0 adapter as stated although not really a big con for me.

Other Thoughts: My 8 year old Antec power supply cables weren't long enough to feed all of them through the cable management. So watch out if you have an older PSU with shorter cables.

3 out of 5 eggsGood product, meh service

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case

Pros: The case is large enough to fit almost any need and comes with plenty of space for expansions and upgrades. I you are ever looking to overclock a hard drive and want more space for cooling this is the tower to get. The screw in plugs and the parts provided with the tower make installation possible without the use of tools.

Cons: The plastic fan on the side of the case rattles obnoxiously after a few weeks of usage. The rebate provided with this offer is finicky to achieve compared to gigabyte.

Other Thoughts: Get the product for the product, don't expect corsair to be there if you need help

1 out of 5 eggsTook a long time to get here and was broken

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case

Pros: Case looks nice enough and is quite big,

Cons: when I received mine the front panel was so dented that one of the bottom corners is jutting out from the box about two inches.
Very unhappy with this, the case took two weeks longer than the rest of my parts to arrive and was the only part to arrive blatantly broken.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case, lots of room.

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case

Pros: Easily fit an R390; plenty of options for cable management, stock fans are super quiet.

Cons: It's big. It's metal. The wife doesn't like the look of it sitting on my desk.

Other Thoughts: Highly recommended. I hadn't built a new machine in a while, this was an awesome case to use.

Edit: Be careful of their rebates - unlike every other manufacturer who offers rebates, they will exploit any opportunity to deny rebates. At the end of the day the case was great, but Corsair is pretty shady in their dealings.
