Most of us can remember when picking out a case for your next build was a relatively easy thing to do, but during the last 3-4 years there are so many new companies as well as different style and size chassis to choose from, that picking a new case is no longer somethingthat’s easy do.

We have super towers, full towers, mid towers, ITX, and Mini ITX cases, so how do you get started? Thankfully Corsair is here to help you make the right choice, seeing as they have every size and style available for you to choose from.

Today we will be taking a look at the new Corsair Carbide Series Clear 400C mid-tower chassis, so let’s see what Corsair has in store for us.

Corsairs take on the 400C: Easy to build, hard to beat:

With a one touch side panel, tool-free drive installation, and three point dust filter access. The 400C is easy to build and even easier to clean. You’ll spend less time on setup and maintenance and more time enjoying your PC.

Hinged and latched full side panel window:

Easily access your components with a single touch-and when it’s closed, enjoy viewing every part of your build through the full side panel window.

Clean, modern lines with an all steel exterior:

Get rid of those plastic cases-the 400C has steel front and top panels for extra durability and gorgeous good looks.

Direct Airflow Path:

One way to reduce noise is to make sure your fans do not work harder than they have to. By removing the drive cages behind the intake fans, we provide a more efficient direct airflow path to your hottest components, the CPU and GPU. It’s just a smarter design.

Two included AF series fans:

Great airflow does not have to be noisy, the AF120L and the AF140L fans can push good amounts of air across your hottest components without that annoying hum, and the direct airflow design of the 400C provides an excellent path for cold air to reach your hottest parts.
