Corsair Carbide 100R Silent Edition detailed review

Coming from the lower rung of Corsair’s PC cabinet portfolio, the Carbide 100R Silent edition case is aimed at users looking to house their low to mid end ATX builds and save space in the process. The case maintains a simple all-black look throughout its design and you won’t find anything fancy with it. As for extras, Corsair has thrown in a three speed fan controller with its switch at the back of the case. There are sound dampening foam sheets stuck on both the side panels and the top part.


Installation inside the 100R Silent was easy but we must say that although the case has enough cable routing holes, working inside it can be quite restrictive at times because of its size. There are two versions of the 100R – one standard and the other silent and so, the standard version (available for Rs.3,999) features the addition of a side-panel window and top fan mounts while the Silent one doesn’t. This somewhat limits the cooling options with the silent version but it pays off when you talk about its excellent noise performance.

Cooling performance was at par with other contenders in this price range as it maintained a temperature of 35°C at full load. The 100R Silent does exactly what it advertises but if you aren’t bothered much about fan noise, then there are much cheaper alternatives like the Thermaltake Versa H21.
