Posted on Thursday, October 29 2015 @ 14:13:22 CET by

Corsair rolled out a new Micro-ATX budget case, the Carbide 88R with a $49.99 price tag. This compact tower case measures 440mm x 198mm x 378mm and weighs a mere 3.65kg. The chassis is made from steel but features a brushed aluminium-like front to give the case a more high-end look.

The interior fits a Micro-ATX or Mini-ITX motherboard, one 5.25" drive bay, two 3.5" HDDs, two 2.5" SSDs, four PCI expansion slots, video cards with a maximum length of 383mm, a PSU with a maximum length of 160mm an a CPU with a maximum height of 160mm. Cooling is provided by up to five 120mm fans and there's space for one 120/240mm front radiator and a 120mm rear radiator.

The case has a large side window and features an all-black interior, it has dedicated cut-outs for cable management and features the usual tool-free installation. A front I/O panel with one USB 3.0 port, one USB 2.0 port and HD audio connectors rounds out the feature set.

Overall it looks like a pretty nice compact case for its price class.
