Priced aggressively at just $59 the Carbide Series 200R offers PC builders a supremely flexible chassis with unmatched value and ease-of-use.
Corsair’s cases may be some of the most respected currently available and offer a wide variety of options; they were lacking a true budget-friendly solution. Now, with the Carbide 200R, it looks like they’ve finally gone that route with a chassis that doesn’t look anything like low-rent cases from other manufacturers.
The full press release, pictures and specifications is below.

FREMONT,California— October 24, 2012 — Corsair®, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced the Carbide Series™ 200R mid-tower chassis. Priced at only $59 and offering features designed to make PC building incredibly easy and quick, the 200R is ideal for PC builders looking for great value for money.
The Carbide Series 200R is Corsair’s lowest-cost chassis, yet it still includes many of the features that make Corsair chassis popular with enthusiasts and gamers, such as built-in SSD compatibility, front panel USB 3.0 ports, intelligent cable-routing, tool free installation, and a matt-black interior. It is exceptionally easy to use, and a screwdriver is only required to install the motherboard.
“The Carbide 200R is a great value case that breaks the mold by offering intelligent features, great cooling expandability, elegant looks, and is extremely easy to build,” said Thi La, Senior VP & GM of Memory and Enthusiast Component Products at Corsair. “Too often PC builders on a budget are limited to low quality, poor-performing cases with ‘extreme’ looks. Now they have a clear, refined choice.”
The Carbide 200R eschews the clichéd look of many low-cost ‘gamer-orientated’ chassis and instead offers a clean and elegant aesthetic design that will appeal to gamers, hobbyist PC builders, and professional system integrators alike. And with up to eight fan mounting locations (two fans included), tool-free support for four 3.5” drives and four 2.5” SSDs, and support for long graphics cards, it can even support high-end PC hardware.
