Case Build & Finished Product
One thing we like about the case evolution is when the chassis starts and ends with the same aesthetics on the front. With a solid front panel and no optical bays in this design, without cutting a hole or scratching the finish, the 400C keeps that sleek appearance we liked right out of the box.
With all of our gear inside of the chassis, we still have room at the front of the chassis for an AIO or a thinner radiator from a custom shop. The top is tight, and may conflict with the motherboard, but we had no issues stuffing our H80i into the back of the chassis. All of the attention to detail was worth it in the end, as this build is very clean to look at once finished.
When it came to installing the dust shield, it snapped right into place. The video card aligned as it should, and screwing the PSU into place caused us no issues either.
Even with the tray for 2.5" drives left in place, we did manage to work around it fairly easy. We did need to remove the HDD cage at the bottom to leave access to wire the modular PSU, but the leads all have room to get where they needed to, and not conflict with putting the panel back on over it all.
Just about ready to test out the 400C. We put the panels back on without issue, and it is at this time that you start to appreciate the size of the side panel window, and the view afforded by it.
On the top of the chassis, there is a glow of white LED from the power button, and the flicker of the HDD LED. While we would have liked the Corsair logo on the PSU cover to glow, at least, the Zotac on the video card, and the Corsair head unit LEDs are white to keep with the theme the Carbide Clear 400C offers externally.
