Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Mid Tower Case Review - Packaging

We saw what $100 got with the 400R, now let's see what a little more of an investment and a white paint scheme does for the Arctic White 500R from Corsair.

The Packaging

Allowing money to be spent on other options in the chassis, Corsair uses the black printing on the brown cardboard solution to package the chassis and inform its buyers. Here you have an outline of the chassis on the left with explanations of three selling points in six languages on the right, and Carbide 500R in a large font across the bottom.

Here Corsair covers the specifications list in three of the languages found of the front of the packaging. At the bottom you get a rendering of the inside of the 500R and one from the front as well.

The exploded diagram gets an upgrade from the one we saw on the 400R. This time it not only shows the dust filter, fan arrangement, removable bay covers, and the panels removed from the chassis, the 500R also has the removable hard drive cages and the tray in each shown here. Along the bottom you can follow what each piece is or does by its designated letter.

This side has all the same information that the opposing panel displayed. The difference to note here, is that now the specifications list have changed to the remaining three languages covered on both the front and the back of this packaging.

Since the Carbide 500R chassis can come in both black and white paint schemes, Corsair decided to use a sticker placed on top of the packaging to denote which of the two is included inside the box. As you can see by not only the "500R WHITE PK1" there is also a sticker showing the white case and "Arctic White" plainly displayed.

A plastic liner is used to keep minor abrasions from destroying the Arctic White paint finish on this 500R. Inside the liner you will find a plastic bag with the quick start guide slid in there. To keep the case in the middle of the box and protect it from small drops or tumbles, thick Styrofoam caps are used with the 500R.
