The Top, Bottom, and Rear Panels

The top panel of the Corsair Carbide 200R is meshed, supporting two 120 mm or 140 mm fans. The case comes with rubber rings for these fans, in order to reduce noise and vibration. There is no air filter on this mesh. Although usually an air filter on the top panel is unnecessary, since this case’s top mesh has big holes, this might be a concern.

This case has seven expansion slots with vented slot covers.
