CES 2015 – Las Vegas – January 6, 2015 – Corsair®, a worldwide leader in high-performance PC hardware, today announced the Carbide Series™ 100R and Carbide Series 100R Silent mid-tower PC cases. Priced at $49 and $59 and offering features designed to make PC building incredibly quick and easy, the 100R cases make it possible for users to build a serious PC that looks as good it performs.
The Carbide Series 100R and Carbide Series 100R Silent are among Corsair’s lowest-cost cases, yet avoids the look of many low-cost PC cases, instead offering an elegant aesthetic that will appeal to gamers, hobbyist PC builders, and system integrators. The cases include innovative, builder-friendly features that make Corsair cases popular with PC users, such as built-in SSD mounts, front-panel USB 3.0 ports, intelligent cable routing, and tool-free drive mounts. And with up to five 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, the cases easily support high-end GPUs, liquid coolers, massive storage, and PSUs.
The standard version of the Carbide Series 100R come with a side panel window and top cooling vents. The Carbide Series 100R Silent version is sound dampened with a solid top and non-window side panel to reduce noise.
“The Carbide 100R shatters the stereotype that budget-friendly cases have to be gaudy and poorly designed, ” said George Makris, Product Manager for Cases and Cooling at Corsair. “Now gamers and PC enthusiasts have a subtle, functional, and affordable foundation for their next PC.”
