Corsair today announced at CES the new Corsair Carbide 400Q and Carbide 400C high-performance PC cases, along with the Carbide Series SPEC-ALPHA mid-tower gaming case. The Carbide 400Q and Carbide 400C feature compact mid-tower case designs. The 400C puts your PC's components on display through a full size windowed side panel, while the 400Q features an interior lined with sound-damping material to minimize noise. In both the 400Q and 400C, Direct Airflow technology ensures unimpeded flow of cool air to your PC's components.
The Carbide Quiet 400Q and Carbide Clear 400C are both easy to build in and liquid cooling capable. Tool-free drive installation, easy-access side-panels and cable routing options mean PC enthusiasts can spend less time building a PC. Dust filters are easily accessible to cut cleaning time down to a minimum and two modular and refined PSU and 3.5" bay covers make it easy to conceal cables and drives. The 400Q and 400C both feature room for up to a 360mm radiator in front, a 240mm radiator on top, and a 120mm radiator in the rear, and Direct Airflow technology directs air to the hottest components from two included Corsair AF series fans (1 x AF140L intake, 1 x AF120L exhaust). Despite their compact mid-tower dimensions, the 400Q and 400C can house a full ATX motherboard and multiple GPUs if expansion is desired.
The Carbide 400C features a full size side panel window that provides an unobstructed view into the case that's ideal to show off your PC's components.
Available in early February 2016 for $99.99 MSRP from Corsair's worldwide network of retailers and distributors, the Carbide 400Q and Carbide 400C are backed by a two-year warranty.
Also announced today is the Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-ALPHA mid-tower gaming case. As you see below, it has an angular design and an oversized window to show off its interior. Designed for PC gamers' next rig, the SPEC-ALPHA is equipped with three 120mm fans for Direct Airflow Path cooling, controlled by a three-speed switch on the case's front panel.
Uniquely styled with LED fans, the SPEC-ALPHA is featuring native USB 3.0 support and room for up to four SSDs. The case also allows for tool-free installation and side panel removal for easy building and access.
The interior combines with a Direct Airflow Path layout for optimal cooling and airflow. With no bulky 5.25" drive cage, the SPEC-ALPHA creates a clear path from the front intake straight to the CPU and GPU. The three-speed 120mm fans adapt to user needs, from near-silent operation to high-performance GPU cooling. The SPEC-ALPHA is also front 240mm radiator compatible, allowing for additional liquid-cooling upgrades.
The SPEC-ALPHA case comes in two color options - black and red.
The Carbide Series SPEC-ALPHA will be available in early March 2016 for $79.99 MSRP and is backed by a two-year warranty.
