Corsair Carbide 330R Quiet Mid-Tower Case Review

Manufacturer: Corsair

A Detailed Look – At the Inside

The Corsair Carbide 330R Quiet Mid-Tower case offers a lot of usable space inside for a mid-tower enclosure. Looking into the case from the left side reveals a typical ATX mid-tower case layout with the power supply located at the bottom instead of up top.

The top section inside the enclosure is dominated by the motherboard area, which features a large cutout opening behind the CPU area for easy access to mount CPU coolers. There are several openings around the motherboard area for neatly routing cables and wires.

In the upper right are three external 5.25” drive bays, which include easy to use, tool-less drive locking mechanisms. Looking down towards the bottom of the 330R Quiet case reveals a single HDD cage towards the front and the power supply mounting area towards the back.

The HDD cage contains four slide-out HDD trays. Each tray can mount either a 3.5” or 2.5” HDD / SSD.

Removing the right side panel provides access to the areas behind the motherboard and drive cages, which offers a lot of room to neatly route and conceal cables.

Got one of these a few weeks ago. Bit tight but able to hit H110 and runs very cool and quiet with it. Only complaint is with H110 the top fan grill will occasionally vibrate and bounce of of the fans/rad.

Three hings I 'd like to see revised on this case.
1: Grommeted cable routing holes. (no real excuse as to why this isn't included)
2: More rear motherboard cable notches. (there are very few)
3: Less restricted front frame for better airflow.

I like the idea of this case, but it seems to cut corners.

are VERY restricted, that's something they got to fix.

300R was a nightmare build for me, compare to the 200R delight
hope they fix it in the 330R.
