Corsair Carbide Series 400C Case Review

Back in December we took a look at Corsair’s Carbide 600Q case. This larger case was one of the first Corsair had launched in a very long time. Corsair offered it in the “Q” (quiet) version, which we reviewed, and a “C” (clear) version that had an awesome clear side panel. At CES in January Corsair showed us another new case that was part of the Carbide Series, which was the 400. It also is available in Q/C versions. The biggest change with this case is that it is more compact, there are no optical drive bays and less room inside. But you still have room for long graphics cards, watercooling, 5 hard drives, and it even has a power supply cover. Being a smaller case Corsair has priced this case at only $99, so it sits with many entry-level cases in that price range. Today we are going to be checking out the 400C which features that awesome clear side panel so you can show off your hardware inside. Let’s see if Corsair has another winner in this case!

Special thanks to Corsair for providing us with the Carbide Series 400C case to review.


The 400C comes in Corsair’s typical cardboard box packaging for their cases. On the frot there is an outline of the case and information about the case.

Flipping around to the back there is an exploded view of the case showing all of its parts.

On the side of the box you will find a list of specifications, much like we have listed above.

Opening the box up we can see our case is nicely protected by large styrofoam and a plastic bag. This is also plastic on both sides of the clear side panel to make sure it does not get damaged during shipping.


Inside the case you will also find an installation guide and mounting hardware.
