Corsair continues their methodical expansion process by adding to their product line one item at a time. This gives them plenty of time to research, test, and refine each new product to be the best they can offer. This time we get a new addition to the Corsair Carbide Series in the form of the 200R.

Corsair wants to offer a PC case in each pricing market by starting in the middle and then expanding their PC case lineup in both directions. The Carbide 200R will be priced at $59 MSRP taking its place as the new entry-level option from Corsair.

This mid-tower case features tool-free support for four 3.5" drives and four 2.5", three 5.25" bays, USB 3.0, cable management, and it's designed to support full-sized graphics cards. While the 200R comes with two 120 mm fans, it can support up to eight total 120/140 mm fans in the standard locations. The Carbide 200R includes all the user-friendly features you find in more expensive Corsair cases in a more affordable package.

The Carbide 200R has a simple, clean style that anyone could see sitting at their desk. It is walking a tight rope between a feature rich gaming chassis and a work environment understated appeal. The Carbide 200R is a great package with a 2 year warranty to protect your investment. This is perfect way for Corsair to say, "This is a less expensive case, but not our cheapest."

Corsair Carbide Series 200R Chassis Makes PC Building Easy

– Priced aggressively at just $59 the Carbide Series 200R offers PC builders a supremely flexible chassis with unmatched value and ease-of-use –

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 matte 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.

The Corsair Carbide Series 200R is available immediately from Corsair’s worldwide network of resellers and distributors, at an aggressive price of $59 in the United States.
