  • Our 4000 Series and the most recently launched 5000 Series cases have arrived! Both lineups signal a return to classic CORSAIR styling with a focus on improving the build experience, flexibility, and performance over our previous lineup of cases. CORSAIR iCUE 4000X RGBThis new case lineup began with the 4000 Series launching back in September of 2020, introducing features like the RapidRoute cable management system, more space behind the motherboard tray, and all new case fans developed with CORSAIR AirGuide technology for delivering focused airflow to your components, all of which come together to make it simple and easy to make a clean looking and high performing build. CORSAIR AirGuide technology utilizes stator vanes built into the frame of the fan to concentrate airflow out the rear of the fan.The 4000 Series is a great starting point, but if you need even more room for massive cooling such as a custom water cooling loop built with Hydro X components, our most recently launched 5000 Series of cases take those great features introduced by the 4000 Series and expands on them with more cable management features using the CORSAIR RapidRoute cable management system and more options for mounting cooling hardware, all packed in a mid-tower chassis that’s grown in every dimension. Since it might be a little difficult to tell the size difference between the two case series, we’ve put together some line art with examples of both cases side by side to illustrate: Figure 1 – CORSAIR 4000 Series (left) and 5000 Series (right)Figure 2 – CORSAIR 4000 Series (left) and 5000 Series (right)If you’re looking for a comprehensive comparison between the two series, we’ve put together this table: Case SeriesCORSAIR 4000 SeriesCORSAIR 5000 SeriesVariants4000D, 4000D AIRFLOW, 4000X RGB5000D, 5000D AIRFLOW, 5000X RGBColorsBlack, WhiteBlack, WhiteChassis TypeATX Mid TowerATX Mid TowerMotherboard SupportMini ITX, Micro ATX, ATX, E-ATX*Mini ITX, Micro ATX, ATX, E-ATX*Expansion Slots7 + 2 Vertical     7 + 2 VerticalMaximum Video Card Length360mm420mmMaximum CPU Cooler Height170mm170mmInternal Drive Bays2x 3.5in, 2x 2.5in2x 3.5in, 4x 2.5inChassis Dimensions453mm x 230mm x 466mm520mm x 245mm x 520mmChassis Volume 48.55L 66.25L120mm Fan MountingFront: 3x 120mm<br>Top: 2x 120mm<br>Rear: 1x 120mmFront: 3x 120mm<br>Top: 3x 120mm<br>MB Tray: 3x 120mm<br>Rear: 1x 120mm140mm Fan MountingFront: 2x 140mm<br>Top: 2x 140mmFront: 2x 140mm<br>Top: 2x 140mmRadiator SupportFront:  360mm / 280mm<br>Top:  280mm w/ Low-Profile RAM, 240mm<br>Rear: 120mmFront: 360mm / 280mm<br>Top: 360mm / 280mm<br>MB Tray: 360mm / 240mm / 120mm<br>Rear: 120mmIncluded Fans4000D/AIRFLOW: 2x AirGuide Fans (1 front, 1 rear)<br>4000X RGB: 3x AirGuide RGB fans (front panel)5000D/AIRFLOW: 2x AirGuide Fans (1 front, 1 rear)<br>5000X RGB: 3x AirGuide RGB fans (front panel), white model includes white AirGuide RGB fansIncluded Fan / Lighting Controllers4000D/AIRFLOW: None<br>4000X RGB: Lighting Node CORE5000D/AIRFLOW: 6-port PWM Repeater<br>5000X RGB: 6-port PWM Repeater + Lighting Node COREMSRP (USD)$94.99+$164.99+It’s clear that the 5000 series case lineup expands on many of the same features present in the 4000 series, the most noticeable difference being in size and the addition of fan/radiator mounting on the motherboard tray as an option. CORSAIR 5000 Series Product VideoThe 5000 series’ expanded mounting options allow for increased flexibility and headroom should you decide to water cool your system with CORSAIR HYDRO X Series components or if you decide to do a build with a large graphics card like the RTX 3090 or RX 6900 XT which seems to be the current trend in gaming builds. CORSAIR 4000D & 4000D AIRFLOW Product VideoThe 4000 series, being the sort of little brother in our case lineup, you can still build a high end water-cooled system in a 4000 series case as shown by expert builder Hans Peder Sahl so if you’re up for the challenge or maybe just want a smaller footprint, the 4000 series cases are a great option for your next build!

  • Looking to make your system run faster and have your games load quicker? System storage is often overlooked but can provide a significant upgrade to your system’s overall responsiveness, especially if you’re still using a traditional mechanical hard drive! What Makes SSDs So Great? Speed It’s all in the name, a solid-state drive uses cells of flash memory (which are by nature, solid-state) to store data and can be accessed much quicker than a mechanical hard drives’ spinning platter. This translates to speeds that can be over 50 times greater than you’re used to with your old hard drive depending on the type of transfer. Noise Since solid-state drives have no moving parts, they run silently (unless being actively cooled by a fan of course). This removes the sounds of your disks spinning up and the low hum of them running entirely! Durability Another benefit of having no moving parts is that there are fewer things that are likely to break should your system encounter some unexpected shock such as when you move your system. Longevity Finally, the tech behind SSDs has matured greatly over the past decade, rivaling and surpassing the expected lifespan of traditional hard drives, ensuring that an SSD will hold your data well beyond the lifespan of a typical system. How Games Use Your Storage In-engine screenshot of CD PROJEKT RED’s Cyberpunk 2077How does that extra speed translate to games? Sequential read and write speeds help out when reading and writing large files like pre-rendered cutscenes and massive textures which you’ll often come across during a loading screen in a game. Load time comparison between a traditional hard drive and a M.2 NVMe SSD (lower is better).To help illustrate the speed difference, I’ve timed how long it takes to load into Cyberpunk 2077 on a hard drive compared to one of our M.2 SSDs. While load times can vary between systems for a variety of reasons, on my system at home I was able to see a significant reduction in load times by using a M.2 NVMe SSD, which cut the wait time roughly in half from 20 seconds on the hard drive down to just 10 seconds on the NVMe SSD. Example of a Cyberpunk 2077 loading screen.While shaving 10 seconds off of game load times doesn’t sound like much at first, this kind of speed boost can really add up, resulting in more time overall being spent enjoying the game rather than staring at a pretty load screen. Another perk of running your games off of an SSD is that it can also help to reduce what many call “pop-in” where textures and models will seemingly pop into existence due to a lag from loading the asset from slower storage! What Do I Need To Upgrade? SSDs come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, if you want to swap out a SATA hard drive you can grab a SATA SSD and use the same cables to connect it to your motherboard and power supply as a direct replacement. CORSAIR MP400 M.2 NVMe SSD installed in a notebook.However, the more popular option is to go for an SSD that connects directly to your motherboard through either a PCIe or M.2 slot! If you decide to pick up a M.2 SSD, we’ve put together this quick video to show you the installation process: The CORSAIR SSD Lineup CORSAIR offers a wide range of M.2 NVMe SSDs that put some pep into the step of your current system (or that new build you’re planning). CORSAIR MP400The MP400 is our latest M.2 NVMe drive, focusing on high capacity and endurance. You can get up to 8TB of storage on a single drive the size of a stick of gum! CORSAIR MP510The MP510 is an all around high performer, with speeds of up to 3,480MB/sec sequential read and 3,000MB/sec sequential writes powered by high-density 3D TLC NAND for an ideal mix of performance, endurance, and value. CORSAIR MP600The MP600 is our current king of the mountain, supporting PCIE 4.0 (but backwards compatible with PCIE 3.0 motherboards) allowing blazing fast speeds of up to 4,950MB/sec sequential read and 4,250MB/sec write, again powered by 3D TLC NAND for its balance of performance, endurance, and value. If you have or are planning to upgrade to PCIE 4.0, this is the M.2 drive to get. Conclusion CORSAIR MP400 installed on a desktop motherboard.SSDs are a great upgrade for pre-built systems and a must for new builds.

  • Want a pro-level build? This pro-level builder bundle includes everything you need to future proof your build. Providing more space to install larger, higher performance components and the dual-chamber design of the 680X RGB allows you to move your PSU out of the way for easier cable management and a clear view of your hardware. Relocate the pre-installed LL120 fans to the top and rear of the case as exhaust fans. This opens the front locations for the H150i PRO XT to be mounted. Relocate LL120 RGB fansTo determine the direction of airflow, you can look at the fan from the front side. Air would be drawn through and exhausted out the back. Air intake goes through the front of a fan and exhausts out the back.To configure your LL120 RGB fans, check out this video where we show you how to use the case’s included Lighting Node PRO. And if you need help with re-orienting your fans in iCUE for animated lighting effect, check out this video. With the front fan locations now open, you can install the H150i PRO XT in that spot. Depending on the how you want the airflow for your case, you can position the fans in front or behind the radiator. In either location, be sure to orient the fans so that they push or draw air throw the radiator to help cool it. The ML fans can be plugged into the 4-pin fan connectors that come off the pump head, you won’t have to worry about finding extra PWM fan headers on your motherboard. We have an installation video for Pro XT coolers to help guide you. When installing the AX1000, make note of where the power connections are on your motherboard.  The PSU is going to be located directly behind the motherboard, oriented vertically, and the cables will pass through the grommets from the rear chamber to the front. The fully modular design lets you use only the cables that you need. Rear chamber of a built systemThe 8-pin EPS12V is typically in the top corner and you can route this cable so it can connect directly to your motherboard. It helps to route this cable first while you have more room to work in before installing top mounted fans or coolers. The 24-pin cable can be routed through one of the middle grommets that is closest to your motherboards 24-pin connector. If your graphics card requires extra power, route the cable through the bottom grommet closest to the PCIe connector on your GPU. We recommend running a dedicated cable per power connector on your graphics card for best performance! Connect the SATA power connector for your H150i PRO XT as well as the SATA power for your RGB Fan Hub included in the rear chamber. Do your best to keep all your cables clustered closer to a single column, this makes for cleaner cable organization even with a lot of cables. You can check out this video on installing a fully modular power supply, just like the AX1000. And check out this video for some tips on cable management. And if you are planning to vertical mount your GPU, don’t forget to install your PCIe riser cable as well as removing the two cover plates for the vertical mounting location. Optional Vertically Mounted GPUOf course, you don’t want to forget to connect your front IO for the case. The power button, reset button and LED indicators pins are generally located in the bottom right corner of your motherboard. Check your motherboard’s manual for the exact pinout of the header. You can route these cables through the bottom grommet. Built System with general IO locations markedFor the audio cable, this is generally in the bottom left corner of your motherboard. As always, check your motherboard’s manual to be sure. You can route this cable up through the bottom cutouts. Your USB 3.0 header is usually at the bottom edge or along the right edge of your motherboard. Route the cable through one of the grommets that aligns with your cable management in the rear chamber. The USB Type-C connector is generally on the right edge of your motherboard. You may want to consider using a USB 3.0 header adapter for this cable if your motherboard does not have a USB Type-C header. Make sure your Lighting Node Pro is plugged into a USB 2.0 header on your motherboard, most boards should have at least 1 header. Always check your manual for exact location! Remember that the RGB Fan hub connected to the Lighting Node PRO will only control the lighting of your fans. You’ll want to make sure that you connect your fan PWM cables to appropriate headers on your motherboard (check your manual for header locations) or a fan controller if you have one that you plan to use.

  • This essential builder bundle takes your build to the next level of cooling and includes a CORSAIR 4000D Airflow case, RM850 power supply, and the H100i RGB PRO XT liquid cooler for ideal thermal performance with new, next gen components! Using a CORSAIR RM850 power supply will give sufficient headroom on system power draws especially when using the new CPUs such as the Ryzen 5000 series and new GPUs such as the RTX 3000 and Radeon 6000 cards. Before we jump into fans and radiator placement, make sure your motherboard is already installed into the case along with the CPU, RAM, and any M.2 drives you may have to make things easier. Please check your manufacturer’s instructions manual for guidance. We also have a general PC building guide video for reference.Additionally, you may want to have your power supply cables already connected to the PSU, route your 8-pin EPS 12V cable to your CPU’s power connector on the top left side of the motherboard and the 24-pin cable to your motherboard’s power connector. Install the RM850 power supply in the PSU compartment of the PC case and secure it with the right screws. Be sure to also connect all the front IO port cables of the PC case correctly at the bottom of your motherboard while you have more space in your case to work with. Use your motherboard’s instructions manual if you need clarifications on the header pinouts. Now let’s talk about the fans and radiator placement in the 4000D Airflow PC case. Our goal is to mount this 240mm radiator on the top panel of the case while exhausting the hot air out upwards. First, prepare your H100i RGB PRO XT liquid cooler by mounting the ML120 fans that come with it onto the radiator; same side where the tubes are in a push-configuration. Make sure the front side of the fans are visible when mounted. Ensure that you have the appropriate brackets clipped onto your CPU block; the H100i RGB PRO XT will come with an Intel mounting bracket pre-installed, but you can find brackets for AMD AM4 and sTRX4 in the box. When you’re ready, install the radiator with the proper screws under the topside of the case with the tubes at the rear side of the case. If you need help, have a partner hold the CPU block/pump during this process. Once the radiator is installed, secure the CPU block with the pre-applied thermal paste onto the CPU. Make sure the Corsair logo is facing in the proper upright orientation. DO NOT overtighten the screws on the bracket that hold down the CPU block, use your fingers to secure it just enough that it doesn’t wiggle. Then connect the USB cable from the CPU block into the internal USB 2.0 header on the motherboard (usually near the bottom side of the motherboard). Connect fan cable into the CPU_FAN header. Connect the ML120 fans on the radiator into the fan splitters from the CPU block; do this along the back side of the case. Lastly, if you have any additional case fans you’d like to install, go ahead and install those where you feel is needed. Typically, three intake fans on the front panel and an exhaust fan at the rear back panel of the case are ideal for thermal performance. And that’s it! Again, if you need additional references for building a PC from start to finish, watch our recent build guide video .Be sure to check out our Discord server, subreddit and the official CORSAIR forums to learn more.

  • With this core builder bundle, you’ll have the necessary components needed to power up and cool a new graphics card in a case with massive airflow! Our recommended configuration for the best balance between performance and aesthetics would be to install the SP120 RGB PRO fans in the front of the case and move the pre-installed AirGuide fan from the front panel to the top panel, positioned as close to the rear exhaust fan as possible. Relocate fans with SP120 RGB PRO in front and stock fans on rear and top exhaust.To ensure that you have your fans mounted the right way for airflow, make that the front of the fans are visible when looking at the front panel, the back of the fans should be visible when looking at the top panel and rear exhaust on the outside of your case! Air intake goes through the front of a fan and exhausts out the back.To configure your SP120 RGB PRO fans, check out this video where we show you how to use the kit’s Lighting Node CORE. And you may also want to check this out for how to re-orient your fans in iCUE for animated lighting effects. For your power supply, route the 8-pin EPS12V cable along the back of your case so it can connect directly to the power connector on your motherboard. It’s best to do this before you install anything like a fan/cooler in the top of your case so you have the most room to work with. Built 4000D with power locations markedYour 24-pin power cable should be routed from the PSU shroud up the cable management bar to meet your motherboard’s 24-pin connector. If your graphics card requires extra power, route the cable up the PSU shroud through the central cable cover on your case, we recommend running a dedicated cable per power connector on your graphics card for best performance! Built 4000D with general IO locations markedDon’t forget to plug in the front IO of your case onto your motherboard. Generally the pins for the power button, reset button and LED indicators can be found on the bottom right corner of your motherboard. Double check your motherboard manual for the exact location and pinout of the front IO header! The front IO cables can be routed through cutouts in your case to keep cables looking tidy. The audio cable will generally connect to a header on the far left corner of your motherboard, again, check you motherboard manual to be sure! This cable can be routed through cutouts in your case. The USB 3.0 cable should go directly to a header on your motherboard, these can often be found along the bottom edge or right edge of your motherboard. Pick a header that works best for your cable management. The USB Type-C cable should connect to a header on the right edge of your motherboard. If your motherboard doesn’t have a USB Type-C header, consider getting an adapter so you can plug this cable into a USB 3.0 header. You’ll also want to make sure that you connect your Lighting Node CORE into a USB 2.0 header on your motherboard, most motherboards will have at least 1-2 USB 2.0 headers, check your manual for exact locations. Remember that the Lighting Node CORE will only control the lighting of your fans, you’ll also want to make sure that you connect your fan DC/PWM cable to appropriate headers on your motherboard or a fan controller if you have one. Finally, we’ve put together this general build guide for building a PC from start to finish! If you have any questions, please contact our support team or join our community on Reddit, Discord, or the CORSAIR User Forums!

  • With the new Nvidia RTX 3080 and 3090 graphics cards finally on the market, it’s important that your system is kept as cool as possible with sufficient airflow. If you’re building a completely new system from scratch or upgrading your current system, you might want to double check your PC case to make sure it can facilitate enough airflow. Here are a few of our top recommendations for PC cases. The new 4000D is a great choice if you prefer a clean, minimalist aesthetic (take a look at the airflow version if you want even better cooling). If you have a slightly bigger budget and want to “bling out your rig”, then the 4000X will give you everything the 4000D has to offer, along with a tempered glass front panel and extra accessories like three RGB fans with AirGuide anti-vortex technology and a Lighting Node Core to control the lighting. The 4000D, 4000D AIRFLOW, and 4000X are available in black and white. The 275R Airflow is a budget-friendly mid-tower case that has proper airflow, as the name suggests, with its ventilated cutout design on the front panel. Since it has 370mm of clearance for the graphics card, it can fit even the monster RTX 3090 with room for up to six 120mm cooling fans. Another great mid-tower case is the 465X RGB, especially since it comes with three of our highly popular LL120 RGB fans. Instead of a mesh grill or cutout design for the front panel, it features solid tempered glass that’s positioned with enough space to allow good airflow and not smother the front intake fans. If budget is not a problem and you are willing to go all out on aesthetics without compromising on performance, then the Obsidian 500D SE mid-tower and Obsidian 1000D super tower are fantastic choices for ideal air and water-cooling. The 1000D is just an absolute beast and can hold up to 18 cooling fans, dual PC systems, up to 480mm sized radiators, and an advanced custom cooling loop like our Hydro X Series if that is what you’re going for. In conclusion, we’ve prioritized cases that offer a good amount of ventilation on the front panel since that’s the driving force for pulling in lots of cool air. That said, if you’re planning on mounting a front panel radiator with a push, pull, or push-pull configuration, it’s always best to double check the clearance to make sure you still have enough room to accommodate your new graphics card.
