Computex Taipei 2013 - Corsair has debuted two new and exciting cases at this year's Computex. Both cases are mid-towers, which makes them perfect for most users' needs. The Carbide Series Air 540 is "optimized for cooling" and the Carbide Series 330R is said to be "designed for quiet operation."

The Carbide 330R, seen above, is a slick looking case. It's designed for low-noise operation and features noise-dampening side panels and front door, which helps to keep the noise inside the PC. It features support for Mini-ITX, Micro-ATX, ATX, and e-ATX motherbaords. Tool-free 5.25-inch and 3.5-inch bays make working with the system extremely easy.
