Corsair Carbide Series 330R Quiet Mid-Tower Chassis Review
Peter Donnell+ / 12 months ago
We’re big fans of the Corsair Carbide series here at eTeknix, from the products we’ve seen in the range so far it seems that Corsair cannot put a foot wrong and their design team seem to be at the top of their game, producing one excellent product after another. This much seems to be true of much of the Corsair product range in recent years, taking a look at their Vengeance products you’ll find award winning memory modules, gaming mice and keyboards, their entire chassis range is full of high quality solutions and their CPU coolers are some of the most popular on the market, so I think its safe to say that I have high expectations for the 330R, it has a strong reputation to uphold.
Priced at around £75 the 330R isn’t exactly cheap, or at least that’s a higher than average price for a mid-tower and that means that we’ll be expecting premium quality to match the premium price tag, but with steel construction, sound proofing material pre-installed, two high quality pre-installed fans, USB 3.0 support and more it looks like Corsair might be able to deliver the premium features we are looking for.
The 330R comes in a fairly standard box with a high contrast image of the chassis design and some marketing information about the major features of the chassis.
The back of the box features a break down image of the chassis which shows all the major components and fittings as well as some further information about component compatibility.
In the box I found a handy user manual and an assortment of high quality black screws and some cable ties.
