The Corsair Carbide 275R is a mid-tower PC case designed for those who don't want to spend a lot of money on a gaming rig. This case is a mid-range enclosure that it is also compatible with all-in-one water cooling solutions as well as rather large air coolers. Corsair decided to make use the classic design approach common for their Carbide series but without the front door and there is no 5.25" slot as well. The materials used and the build quality are on a good level, which is something we certainly expected from Corsair. The tempered glass panel is a great add, however we would like to see a different kind of screws. We believe that hex screws can be rather annoying on a side panel.
On the inside there is quite a lot of space available. If you fit an ATX motherboard you can easily install a radiator in the front and one on the top. Apart from that all drive bays have been moved to the lower part of the case and behind the motherboard tray. Due to the size of the chassis, there isn't a good amount of space for cable management. We would like to see more room in the PSU cover and behind the motherboard tray. On the tray there are several openings with rubber grommets that help with cable management and improve the overall look of the case.
The Carbide 275R from Corsair is a PC case which we can definitely recommend. If you are looking for a mid-tower PC case with a pre-installed fans that is compatible with AiO water cooling gear, this is a great product. Building a nice and clean looking rig is very simple and straight forward with this case. The Corsair Carbide 275R is available on Geizhals for 79 Euro excluding shipping costs. Furthermore the case is available in two colors: black and white. The Corsair Carbide 275R earns 4 out of 5 stars
