Specifications, Availability and Pricing
On the technical side of things this is by all standards a mid-tower chassis. The steel enclosure and plastic front bezel combined measure in at 16.9" from bottom to top and 19.6" from front to back. Something else to consider if you use a taller CPU cooler is that there is only 8.3" of space in the chassis width wise and almost an inch of that is taken up in the back behind the motherboard tray. Around the outside the entire chassis is painted black, but very flat black with a grainy texture to it. The lines on the chassis are pretty square with splashed of hexagonal shaped mesh on the sides of the bezel, in the left panel, and in the top of the chassis.
Internally there is room for an ATX or a Micro-ATX motherboard on the motherboard tray, and there are four holes around it to run the various wires. Up in front, at the top there are three 5.25" bays with strong metal tabs on the side to lock devices into place. Then after a bit of a gap for the 120mm fan to blow directly into the chassis, you run into a clip in style 2.5" drive rack made of plastic. This allows for four drives in a two wide two high setup. At the bottom you then have four 3.5" drives with built in clips on the sides of the rack. No need for trays or screws here, just slide the drives in until you hear the click, and you are ready to go. At the back there is another 120mm fan installed as the chassis exhaust, and there are seven expansion slots above the power supply.
I already mentioned that this chassis can be had for less than fifty bucks, but there are many places showing stock, and some of the deals aren't that great, and others at the moment are spectacular. On the higher end of the scale, you can buy direct from Corsair and spend $62.99. Being that I don't play favorites, I buy where it is cheapest, I seen both Amazon and Newegg have this chassis at $49.99, but Newegg is taking it one step further. As I write this up, Newegg is offering an additional $20 Mail In Rebate making the 200R an amazingly low $29.99 - and with free shipping!
At $50 I think it is well worth the money, but if you act fast, at $30 to your door, the chassis is an absolute no brainer for any build.
