The latest in the Carbide series of PC cases from Corsair would be the 400Q and 400C. The C (Clear) model comes with a see through side panel while the Q model (Quiet) is aimed at silence.

Something different, and we like that very much.

The Carbide series of PC cases from Corsair have been updated with the budget 100R and 100R silent, Corsair markets the product being entry-level, and with a 50 to 60 USD pricetag, we can not argue on that. These chassis remain to be good looking but really are feature rich products. Keywords here would be a dark design chassis, tool free, decent space and nice airflow with the help of a small fan controller.
