For an Immaculate Build That Keeps its Cool - CORSAIR Launches Versatile 5000 Series of Mid-Tower Cases

[Editor's note: Our review of the CORSAIR 5000D AIRFLOW can be found here]

CORSAIR, a world leader in high-performance gaming peripherals and enthusiast components, today announced a new series of mid-tower ATX cases to suit nearly any build: the CORSAIR 5000D, 5000D AIRFLOW, and the iCUE 5000X RGB. Every 5000 Series case offers simple and tidy cable management thanks to the CORSAIR RapidRoute cable management system, terrific cooling from included fans featuring CORSAIR AirGuide technology, and a spacious interior that fits multiple radiators, including two 360mm simultaneously. Between the understated styling of the 5000D, the optimized airflow of the 5000D AIRFLOW, and the eye-catching RGB lighting behind four beautiful tempered glass panels of the 5000X RGB, the 5000 Series has a case to meet any builder's priorities.

Debuting in the recently launched 4000 Series, the CORSAIR RapidRoute cable management system has proven to be a hit with PC builders looking to minimize the hassle of cable routing while still achieving a clean, professional look for their system. The 5000 Series takes RapidRoute even further, with a concealed cutout, wide enough to fit all major connectors to your motherboard, and multiple removable routing channels through which you can run all your cables out of sight. With a generous 25mm of cable routing depth behind the motherboard, and a magnetic door behind which to hide your cabling, it's exceptionally easy to build a top-tier PC that also looks the part.
The 5000D and 5000D AIRFLOW include two 120mm fans with CORSAIR AirGuide technology, built with anti-vortex vanes that concentrate airflow for enhanced cooling directed towards your PC's hottest components. The 5000X RGB goes a step further with three included SP120 RGB ELITE AirGuide fans equipped with eight individually addressable RGB LEDs each, controlled by an included iCUE Lighting Node CORE controller and CORSAIR iCUE software.

The spacious interior of all three cases offers great cooling potential, with room for up to 10x 120mm or 4x 140mm cooling fans. A specialized motherboard tray with customizable fan mounts enables you to install an additional 360mm radiator into the side of a 5000 Series case to bolster your cooling. With room for up to 4x 2.5in SSDs and 2x 3.5in HDDs, along with a host of front panel I/O connections including a USB 3.1 Type-C port and 2x USB 3.0 ports, the 5000 Series has all of your needs covered.

With the full range of features available in all three cases, the only choice is which style you prefer. The 5000D is equipped with a minimalist solid steel front panel, complete with dedicated ventilation channels for air intake. The 5000D AIRFLOW's steel front panel is perforated with triangular cutouts for maximum airflow to your components. The 5000X RGB makes for a breathtaking build encased in four tempered glass panels, perfect for displaying the vibrant RGB lighting from the included SP RGB ELITE fans and all your RGB components. Whichever case from the 5000 Series you choose, one thing is clear: you'll have an immaculate build that keeps its cool.

Availability, Warranty, and Pricing
The CORSAIR 5000D ($164.99), 5000D AIRFLOW ($164.99), and 5000X RGB ($204.99) are available immediately from the CORSAIR webstore and the CORSAIR worldwide network of authorized retailers and distributors.

Looks cool, until you look at the top of your sweet new 4000D build and see:


Covered with a cheap magnetic mesh filter.

Hopefully they put something that looks good on the top of the case, and it doesn't look like the far side of my AC condenser.

On the D and D airflow, the top panel looks like the front panel. And is removable. On the 5000X it's a piece of glass, like on 570X.

They should bring back the C70 and 500R cases. Those were the best they ever made.

Honestly the 4000D Airflow is better than the 500R in every way. And I was the PM and designer of 500R.

PSU cover, refined design, better cooling, easier cable routing, more AIO capability, and $70 cheaper than 500R.

Only thing the 500R has on 4000D Airflow is more hard drive space for 3.5" drives, 8 slots instead of 7, and a firewire port (lol 2010).

Unless you need 5.25" drive bays, I can't see why 500R would be your choice in 2021 over the 4000D Airflow really.

For A/V production I still use optical and hard disk drives. With the 500R I can remove the top panel and mount a 240mm AIO radiator externally. I'm not a fan of tempered glass side panels. I like being able to mount two Silverstone 140mm FHP141's running at full speed (171 cfm each) in the side panel for maximum airflow into the case. If the C70 had the popout top panel the 500R does it'd be my favorite case.

I was getting both for $59-69 dollars each after rebate from Newegg back in the day. The 500R was the first case I didn't have to take the Dremel or plasma cutter to in order to configure it like I wanted it. My days of carving up cases for cooling fans & radiators ended when the 500R came out. I used them for countless customer builds. The latching side panels and carrying handles on the C70 were great. I'm old and prefer function over form. My PC's are work tools so RGB and other nonsense means nothing to me. This picture is from 2014, everything but the mobo, AIO fans, audio card and optical drives have since been replaced with newer and better components but for my needs it's the perfect A/V production PC. I'd love to get another white 500R case for my Xeon E5 2683 V4 build.
