Corsair Carbide 200R review

The Carbide series of cases from Corsair has been fairly well received here at bit-tech. The 500R is a large, feature rich case geared towards water-coolers and picked itself up an Approved award too. We also looked at the 400R last year, which despite not picking up an award, still put in a good showing, especially for its relatively low price. With us today is the newest member of the family, the 200R, the cheapest and most basic case of the range with a price tag of just £50. Can it continue the success of the Carbide series?

Initial impressions are good with the 200R, as the steel chassis has a sturdiness to it that is very impressive for a budget case. There is very little flex to the flat side panels or to the case itself (with or without the side panels attached), indicating that build quality hasn't been sacrificed for price. The plastic front panel too is tightly secured to the case, although also relatively easy to clip out from inside the case, as it's fully detachable.
