Have you looked for new cases lately? It’s difficult to find cases that don’t have tempered glass windows, even at lower prices. Now, though, Corsair has a case that it hopes is so quiet you forget it’s even there: the Corsair Carbide 110Q Mid-Tower case.
The Carbide 110Q is Corsair’s entry-level mid-tower case, priced to match at $69 US. It’ll replace the similarly-decked-out 100 series of cases. The headline feature on the case is the sound insulation lining four sides of the case.
Carbide 110Q Details
The 110Q hides its power supply and two 3.5″ HDD bays under a power supply shroud at the bottom of the case, with room for two 2.5″ drives behind the motherboard tray. There’s also a 5.25″ optical drive bay in the front of the case.
The mid-tower case can handle ATX, MicroATX, and Mini-ITX boards. Ther’s room for a GPU up to 330mm in length, and a CPU cooler up to 160-mm tall. The case comes with a single 120-mm rear-mounted fan, but if you want to expand, the case offers room for a total of three140-mm or four 120-mm fans on the front. If you want to liquid-cool a system inside this case you’ll be able to fit a radiator in the front up to 280-mm long. The system also features side- and bottom-mounted removable dust filters to keep all that stuff clean.
The front I/O panel is pretty spartan; you’ll find a power button, reset button, headset jack, and two USB 3.1 Type-A ports.
If you want the case window and aren’t as worried about noise, the 110R will also be available. It offers roughly the same feature set, minus the insulation and plus room for another fan. The 110R also appears to include an LED-lit fan.
Corsair says on its site that these cases will be available for purchase in the next couple of weeks.
