Corsair announced the most affordable case in its lineup, the Carbide Series 200R (model: CC-9011023-WW). Priced at just US $59.99, the ATX mid-tower aims to offer most of Corsair's signature features that helped established its brand. The case goes with the catchphrase "...the only time you'll need to pick up a screwdriver is to install the motherboard." Measuring 490 x 270 x 560 mm, the case is made of SECC steel and ABS plastic. Its storage area includes three 5.25-inch and four 3.5-inch/2.5-inch drive bays.

Looks pretty classy for an entry level case. Very nice indeed. I hope it's under $80AUD when/if it comes to Australia. There aren't many other cases apart from BitFenix (and a couple of others) that look this elegant for under $80 in Australia.

At last a decent case (foremost the looks) at affordable price. That's for the US of course. In Europe it will be as usual, a rip-off.

This 200r could be released as mini-atx, would be very cool. The corsair could further diversify this type of follow-midi-atx the market is full. Especially models of corsair. But, the 200r is cool.

+1 to that. I think value or not, this case is awesome. But I am tired of only ATX sized cases. The battle of the sizes has already began. Corsair, if your PR snitch is reading this, please make a mATX variant of the 200R.

I don’t know on looks is just a tad too subdue, restrained, like it needs some gunmetal/black chrome trim. Something to quell the “big black box look”, which today is just everywhere, it demands something distinguishing.

I thought it little seemed lax with front USB, I’d almost want 2 more USB 2.0’s. For that top fan area; first I’d like to have one fan for just a H80 (like you’d buy this case and use a H100). Next have a nicer looking and finer mesh cover over that ugly punch-out, while also include a thin acoustic material that can placed between those to minimize noise from that big hole when not using it. Lastly those side panel fans punch-out are obnoxious and stupid… Like does any do those anymore? Those went out of vogue after the P4- 2900XT years, especially given they give you the bottom and top fans. I suppose there a few heavy OC’rs that see them as useful, but most looking at this level if case wouldn’t.

For a budget build case Corsair appears to toss in all the features to make it appear grandiose, when that’s not what many folk’s require at this level. It’s a case that’s a little too pertinacious in the execution while ho-hum aesthetics. I thought Corsair would buck the trend, be more avant-garde... I mean this is a case for 2013, but stuck in 2008.

This 200r could be released as mini-atx, would be very cool. The corsair could further diversify this type of follow-midi-atx the market is full. Especially models of corsair. But, the 200r is cool.
Oh I agree also. I've been saying Corsair would be the perfect company to release a nice little Midi-Tower for those APU builds, even bundle it with a nice 400W modular Bronze PSU something that provides one 6-pin.

There aren't enough clean "black box" cases. Kudos Corsair.

I really really like this one, and I'd love a mATX smaller version too!

It's not a pile of shit, which makes it better than 90% of cases released this year.

Plenty of easy-mod potential. (port holes, grill removal for radiators)

Good job Corsair! Wondering how they're going to do the 40$~50$ segment, if they are going to enter it in the first place. xD
