Corsair Carbide Series 200R Mid-Tower Comptact ATX Chassis Review
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
It wasn’t long ago that I was taking a look at the Corsair 300R, a budget friendly £65 offering that easily won our eTeknix Editors Choice award for providing rock solid build quality and performance in a neat and tidy package, that didn’t cost the earth. So what does the 200R have to offer us and will it be worth another eTeknix award?
With a price tag of around £55 (at time of writing) the 200R is targeted at the higher quality end of the budget market, while of course there are cheaper chassis’ on the market than this, it’s rare to find anything note worthy below £40. Yet for more budget conscious consumers and system builders £50+ is still a big investment and no one likes to throw away their hard earned money on a cheap quality product.
Because of its price, I won’t be looking for ground breaking performance or lots of stand out features, what we want to see in this price range is typically a decent amount of component compatibility, build quality and a little bit of style.
So let’s take a look at the specifications and see just what the 200R has to offer before we move on to take a closer look at the chassis itself.
