Corsair Carbide 275Q Silent Mid-tower Generally Available

Corsair over the last week sneaked in a variant of its Carbide 275 mid-tower chassis that comes with noise-reduction, the Carbide 275Q. The new model is generally available on Amazon for USD $89.99, a $20 premium over the original that features tempered glass panels. Much of the premium isn't just toward the noise-dampening, but also the included 5-channel fan-controller. The Carbide 275Q features noise-absorbing foam along the inner walls of its side panels, which are now opaque matte-black. Much like the original, the 275Q features three 120 mm front fan intakes that guide air through the top and rear exhausts. You get room for graphics cards up to 37 cm in length, and CPU coolers up to 17 cm in height. You still get two vertical expansion slots in addition to 7 normally located slots, even though there's no window to show off your graphics card. The rest of its features are carried over from the original.

how many 2.5" ssds can it hold ?
Up to six, counting the 3.5-inch trays. Up to five if the fan controller isn't touched.

Nice, but more manufacturers could try a bit of different colors. Majority is still black or silver and white at best.

In the last picture, the feet are not in the right position. This is why i hate “artist renditions” over “picture of 3d model” because the 3d models are way more accurate 99% of the time.

Also not sure why they added vertical mounting unless they thought maybe we would deck it out with extra usb ports

its pretty good price for having all that sound dampening plus a 5 way fan controller built in.

Not a huge difference or nothing special but I do like how they didn't put a PSU shroud, so they left space for HDD trays. Overall it's a nice polished case. The case feet are nice too.

Silent, except for the giant mesh hole in the top.

There's a sound dampening panel for the top :) Though this can be removed for better cooling if needed.

Hey! Another Fractal Ca... Corsair copypasta
this is about $30-50 cheaper than any Fractal silent case though, and to my knowledge Fractal did not include a 5 fan controller either, which imo, is a nice touch for a $85 price point.
