Corsair Carbide 500R Black Case Product Description

Carbide Series Corsair 500R Case : Serious airflow never looked this good.

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.

High-performance gaming systems need lots of room to work with. With eight expansion slots and 316mm of clearance, the Carbide 400R has room for triple-GPU installations.
The Corsair Carbide Series: Built for Builders.

The Carbide Series 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.


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.

It has the space I need for expansions, good air-flow and brilliant design :-)
I found it confusing to put my H900 in at first, it wasn't initially clear it was supposed to go in the front top space inside the case! As a first-time comp build, I was uncertain, I'd recommend a dual rad build, H110/H100 are examples.

Very easy to Build systems into this case. Drive bays are a breeze to set up (adapters required for SSD's but had these anyway!). Tons of room inside and great cable management. Cooling is excellent and although I used a liquid cooler for the processor which is overclocked, the supplied fans in conjunction with it are practically silent! Even with the standard Fan/Heatsink supplied with the processor I reckon the fans would be still fairly quiet!
None found so far!

Morpeth GB
The Corsair 500R has excellent cooling capabilities & loads of room for expansion for a Mid -Tower chasis & looks brilliant in white!!
Just one bad point:- It's a shame it doesn't have a clear side window instead of the meshed side panel.
