The beauty on the inside goes beyond the black-painted interior. Corsair’s innovative cable management system provides a straightforward way to route cables behind the motherboard, not across it where it can interfere with airflow and give your system a cluttered look.

Question  psu & 500R + p5Q premium by bladerunner


I am looking to build my first pc and I have the socket 775 Asus P5Q Premium motherboard using this motherboard which I have had for sometime. I am considering the Carbide 500R case and partnering it with the Corsair Pro Series AX850 CMPSU-850AXUK. will these all be compaitble ie will the asus motherboard fit in the 500R case and also will the psu fit this case.

I want to use the onboard raid feature on the Asus motherboard & I have x2 300GB w/digital raptors for this. I am not in to gaming but I just want a reliable and fast pc. I am not sure if there will be problems regard the case connections i.e USB 3.0 and the connections on the motherboard which are USB 2.0 but i think I am right in saying USB 3.0 is backwards compatible. I hope to add USB 3.0 via an add in Pci card can you recommend any?

Hello Sir,

Yes this is compatible.

Thanks for your question.

Question  Will my rig fit? by coldtrust

Please can you tell me if all this fit into this case?

#48921 = cpu
#44806 = ram
#46239 = psu
#46799 = cpu cooler
#48443 = mobo
#44533 = gpu

I am always worried that that the cpu cooler will be too big to fit on top of the cpu and mobo - nevermind with the ram and gpu in there too!

Answer by mohamedA on Wednesday, April 4, 2012
that looks fine except the cpu will not fit in an fm1 (fusion) motherboard , you will need an am3+ motherboard like this 48564 1


will this gtx 580 fit in this case ?



Answer by mohamedA on Saturday, March 31, 2012
yes this card should fit in that case with the hardrive cage removed the case can support graphics cards that are 452mms long

Question  fans by ganji

hi im planning on buying one of these cases but have a couple of questions first,
1, do any of the fans have led's?
2, in order for me to replace the fans what type is needed? ie 4pin pwm, 3pin or molex


Answer by joebe on Thursday, February 23, 2012
Looking at corsairs spec's the fan's do not have LEDs on them but it does'nt say anything about the adaptor type. For such information please try calling out customer service team who can help you out with that one.
