Inside the Carbide 600C

The front bezel is made of plastic and then wrapped with metal to get the look we saw previously. As for the front of the chassis, to gain access to the fan, you first need to take out the full-length dust filter, which clips into the frame.

Our first glance inside of the 400C shows us a completely open top section for the motherboard, cooling, and whatever else you want to put in here. The wiring is tied up at the motherboard tray, and at the bottom, our view is blocked by the PSU cover assembly.

Inside of the front of the 400C, there is nothing. No optical bays, no hard drive bays, not one thing to impede the air flow offered from this single 140mm fan.

Once you remove the dust filter at the top of the 400C, it is easy to see the fan mounting options. Both the 120mm and the 140mm fan holes are grooves. This allows for various offsets in radiator design, and even allows a bit of room to shift things one way or the other.

The motherboard tray offers six opening for wiring, three of which have grommets, on the right side. There are limited places to tie wiring to due to the 2.5" drive rack, but with no major bump in the tray, to the right side, it allows for wider motherboards to fit with ease.

Taking up the majority of the bottom of the chassis is this two-part PSU cover. Both sections have a hole in them to allow wiring to pass through the top, but the back section also has a Corsair logo on the side of it.
