5 out of 5 eggsH100i Compatible

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

Pros: Perfect size,Great cooling included, if you want a case to support your H100i with no qualms at all,this is the case for you!!
Its striking color combo [artic/white], is absolutely amazing with the naked eye!..Keeps all components nice and cool,with the provided fans,it also has the switch to shut off the lighting if you choose..Great case,and be sure not to pinch the wires in the side-case when doing cable management ..Could be the big cause of all the rant on the inter-webs about "fires" caused from this!!...Enjoy the case its wonderful!

Cons: 200mm side fan isn't switchable to blow out ,instead of in,but not a big deal..

Other Thoughts: Great case for a I7 4770K {OC}TO 4.6/ H100i on top ,plenty of room for expansion,but no one knows why the fire-wire port? Would have liked an extra USB myself..Don't hesitate BUY!

5 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: -Lots of room/air flow.
-Simplistic installation
-Excellent additional built in fans

Cons: -The instruction manuel, like many people have said, is very poor. Had to look up more details about the gadgets that come with the case on my phone. Not enough to get a 4/5 though.

Other Thoughts: Great for my first build, not at all disappointed with performance or cosmetics

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case!

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

Pros: I had been doing a case swap to install all of my hardware from my old case (Antec Skeleton ) into this new one and It was a breeze! Very spacious too. I was able to fit all of my extra fans into the extra mounts. Everything stay cool and looks cool at the same time! Haha. The Harddrive trays are great too.

Cons: What is a Con? In this case that isn't even in my vocabulary.

5 out of 5 eggsLOVE THIS CASE!

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

Pros: This case is absolutely AMAZING! There is SO much room for cable management. The case is sturdy and the airflow is excellent! I built a gaming PC using this case and it hasn't over-heated AT ALL. Fans are very quiet and not loud at all. The lights are bright, but not overly bright (you can even turn them off if you'd like). Overall, it's a wonderful case and I love it so much!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: loveloveloveee this case!

4 out of 5 eggsNice and roomy

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

Pros: 1) The space. Really, what else can you say? I have a raid 0+1 across 4 HDDS with 2 ssds also included, and no issues with cabling all of it together. Running a >12" GPU as well, and fit nicely in the case, with room for me to run a second (or third) along with it.

2) The color. White is just nice and pretty to look at, although black is nice as nice. White is a good "clean" look.

3) The support of the 3 provided fans through the case's own "fan controller" (if you really want to call it that) means I can run a lot more speed controlled fans and have less running off the PSU. For an OC build with 8 fans total, having all 8 be controllable instead of 5 makes it a lot quieter.

4) The side panels stick out, which means a lot cleaner cabling to me, and makes it easier to remove them. Although the panels have a cheap thumbscrew, I have removed the side panels more than I need to, and they are still holding up.

5) Number of fan types is nice. Each port can (for the most part) either hold a 140 or 120mm fan, which makes it easy to choose how to set up the input/output.

6) Top fans are set up to let you mount a radiator (up to 240mm). That's a nice touch for a water cooler user like me, as it means there is a nice place I could put it. However, not all will fit. My H80i is too big to fit there, without any fans attached, so I cannot use it, but some say it supports the H100i and some say otherwise, so just a thing to watch.

Cons: 1) The LED light for the fans is hard to push, while the reset button below it is simple to push. Have more than once pushed it instead and took the machine through a reboot

2) Stock fans are custom with the headers, so you cannot just pull them out and use them elsewhere.

3) Bottom fan slot is IMO pointless. You would have a decently large PSU with a case this big (or is an overkill case for the build) and so you would run out of space to put a fan there.

4) Firewire. No mobo I have ordered within the last year have had firewire. Firewire is underused, and so you end up with a cable that cannot go anywhere. If you have an older motherboard (my father's and uncle's both have it, but they are old machines), then it is used, but newer ones just drop it.

Other Thoughts: Was recommended by some tech friends I work with, and they were happy with it. Was with the 300R previously, but found issues with it that were making my build just not work with it. Upgrading to the 500R was a good solid choice I did.
Got it on sale with a rebate, and Corsair has not let me down with their rebate stuff yet. Wish rebates were just done though, waste of time really to have to go get money back.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Nice Case

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

Pros: Looks nice.
Lights are eye catching.
All the fans especially the large side fan make the case stay cool.

Cons: Mine came with a small dent and scratch on the side. You have to look for it to see it but it was there.
The fan plugs have little adaptors at the end that prevent you from using it with a fan controller without modifying the cables.

Other Thoughts: Everyone that see's the case likes it which is nice. The fans are pretty quiet. The case is pretty large for a mid-size case and has plenty of room for multiple graphics cards and liquid cooling. The cable hiding is a nice touch but isn't as nice as you'd expect because the more components you have the more wires you will still see.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case !!!

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

Pros: I have had this case for over 2 years now and it has been problem free. It's the last case you will ever need. Excellent quality and looks. It is large, but that is why you can do anything you want and never need for more.

Cons: None

Pros: Lots of fans and very quiet.
