Corsair Carbide 300R review

On top we see a large mesh. Good for top side exhuast ventilation. The top mesh can be used for a radiator as there is room for a full 240mm radiator. Obviously you can go nuts with other fans here as well as installing a LCS (liquid cooling system) radiator. A dual 120mm radiator would be a breeze to install for sure.
At the front side at the top we see the power on switch and LED. Connectors wise you'll have plenty of them including USB 3.0 x2, MIC/Headphones. To the left we see a reset and power on/off switch.
Here we have the right side panel (behind the back of the motherboards). There's plenty of room there for cable management, we'll show you that in a minute.
Internals then, since the photos are dark, bear with me. First impression, that's a very decent amount of room to work in for a mid sized tower alright. The second thought would be the all black design, including cables and connectors. The grommet holes lack black rubber inlays to hide cabling, but overall you can make it all really clean and tidy.
A good and popular trend these days is to make a big gaping hole in the motherboard tray. This actually is a CPU backplate cutout which allows you to remove and install a new CPU cooler much easier.
Typically you'd need to take out the motherboard to install a new cooler, now you can access it from both sides without that unpleasant experience of removing a motherboard from the chassis.
We review a new chassis from Corsair, it Obsidian 350D. It is the mini-me version of the new Obsidian 900D chassis. Not mid, not full, mini and this intended for small form factor PCs. Now the product might be tagged as mini, the details and features however are grand. Armed with a price much better then the 900D this might be the product a lot of you are on the lookout for.
Corsair Voyager Air review
We review the Voyager Air, it is a portable storage unit allows you to connect it towards USB 3.0 and Ethernet, but it also includes WIFI support and it actually comes on a 100 GB HDD model as well. This great looking device might just be what the doctor to move or stream your content from.
Corsair Obsidian 900D review
We test and review the all new Corsair Obsidian 900D chassis. Not, mid, not full heck, this is a super tower. Probably one of the biggest products you have seen to date. It is highly configurable has hidden options in every corner and a craftsmanship that will stun you.
Corsair H90 review
A test and review the Corsair H90 liquid cooler. The Hydro Series H90 is Corsairs first 140mm Liquid Cooling solution that is bound to draw some impressive heat from your processor.
