Want even more outrageous cooling flexibility? Step up to the 500R. It adds 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.
There’s room for eight PCI-E cards for multi-GPU setups, and even room for a full 240mm radiator for compatibility with the Hydro Series H100 Liquid CPU Cooler and modular watercooling systems. Superior airflow is a requirement for high-performance components that will be regularly pushed to their limits, so the 500R has ten fan mounting points for cooling flexibility. Three 120mm fans (two in the front, and one in the rear) and one 200mm side fan are included, so you’re ready to start building right out of the box.
The Corsair Carbide Series 500R: Serious airflow has never looked this good.
Built for builders.
Looking good, inside and out.
The fan controller wire is a tad under par and could possibly cause problems if you leave all 3 fans on full for an extended amount of time. The case has a contour on the side, to help bundle all your extra wiring, which is nice but it could have used slightly better placement for maximum effect. The HDD bays insert with the plugs facing the rear to keep wires hidden as well, however if you have all the bays full it will put stress on the plugs on 2 of them. Overall still well designed case.
