Sometimes you need to build a monster rig that doesn’t look – or sound -- like one. Instead, you need a case that offers you the flexibility that installing your top-of-the-line hardware requires, but without all the visual spectacle of the more hardcore models.
The Carbide Series 100R Silent Edition Mid Tower case does exactly that. The sleek, understated design aesthetic looks like “serious business,” while the sound damping side panels, adjustable cooling fans, USB 3.0 support and tool-free access door all say “serious gaming power.” And it all comes at a price that states “serious value”.
It’s the performance PC platform in stealth mode. With a mesh-free front panel, flush-mounted side panel window and clean lines, the 100R is both professional enough for the office and customizable enough for any home PC build.
The side panels are insulated with noise-isolating materials to reduce noticeable fan noise. This essential if you’re building a media PC, and just plain nice if don’t want your system to contribute to environmental noise.
The secret to silent PC design is putting you in control. Keep the three-speed fan controller at its lowest setting for silent operation. When it’s time to push your system hard, take it up a notch or two for on-demand cooling.
The simplicity begins with tool-free 3.5” and 5.25” drive installation, and all four hard drive trays provide solid-state drive support so you can mix and match to fit your needs. On the outside, dual USB 3.0 front panel ports give you quick and easy access to the latest high-speed portable hard drives and flash drives.
Two 120mm fans are included, and five internal fan mounts let you customize your cooling to match your build. The case is designed to draw airflow directly to the GPU to help ensure that you and your graphics card will both keep your cool during intense gaming sessions.
Corsair Carbide Series mid-tower PC cases have the high-end features you need, and nothing you don’t. Designed to be the foundation of awesome yet approachable gaming PCs, they combine the latest technology and ergonomic innovations with lots of room to build and expand, and amazing cooling potential.
