Corsair Carbide 200R Case Review

Hardware Secrets Golden Award

Inside the Corsair Carbide 200R

Both panels are attached to the chassis using black thumbscrews, which is great to see on an entry-level case. The motherboard tray has a huge cutout for you to access the backplate of the CPU coolers without having to remove the motherboard from the case, a few holes for you to route cables behind it, and several clips for you to fasten cables using cable ties.

In Figure 12, we get another overall look inside the case. Expansion cards are fastened using black thumbscrews, which is terrific to see on an entry-level case. The Corsair Carbide 200R supports video cards up to 16.9” (430 mm) long on the top three slots and up to 11.8” (300 mm) on the remaining four slots. The reviewed case supports CPU coolers up to 6.3” (160 mm) tall.

The power supply is installed at the bottom of the case. It can be installed with either its bottom fan facing up or facing down, so you can decide if you want the fan of your power supply pulling air from inside the case or from outside of it. As shown before, there is an air filter for the power supply fan.

The Corsair Carbide 200R supports a 120 mm or 140 mm fan on its bottom panel. Unfortunately, there is no air filter for this optional fan.

Without a bottom fan installed, the reviewed case supports power supplies up to 11.8” (300 mm) deep. With a 120 mm fan installed, you can have a power supply up to 7.5” (190 mm) deep; and with a 140 mm fan installed, you can have a power supply up to 7.1” (180 mm) deep.
