Inside the Carbide 275R

The front bezel will pull away from the chassis, which gives access to the dust filter for cleaning. You also need to do this if you plan to change the cooling configuration. Notice though, there are no wires to deal with, which is a plus to any chassis.

Inside of the box, there is an Allen key in a bag floating around, and as seen in this image, it is used to remove the tempered glass side panel. Keep in mind that the screws are aluminum, and the chassis is steel, as it will come up later in our review.

With the glass gone, the view inside does not change much. We still see the large chamber for all of the major components, while the lower section is blocked from view by the PSU cover.

Inside the front of the 275R, we see a single SP120mm fan there needing a 3-pin fan connection to be powered. There is room for more fans or 140mm fans, and with the notch cut out in the PSU cover, longer radiators have room to be fitted.

While there was no mention of it in the chart, we can see that the top of the chassis offers room for a pair of 120mm fans as well as a single 140mm fan. The fans will blow through the honeycomb mesh and can be hidden from view with the cover, once everything is installed.

The motherboard tray has a wide opening to access CPU cooler backplates, and two of the six openings have grommets in them. The standoffs are pre-installed, with a helper stud in the middle, and at last count, there are eighteen places to tie wires to.
