Inside the Carbide 275R Continued

The PSU cover is notched at the front as we addressed earlier, but there is also another grommet for connecting the motherboard and powering the GPU. There is an odd screw hole, we assume for a GPU support of some sort, and there is mesh over the PSU so that the PSU can be oriented either way.

The back houses the second SP120 fan, but we can also see that the seven expansion slots are accessed internally. The +2 slots use a cover plate, where the screw is on the outside, and there are extra screws in the hardware to use there.

Corsair straps the wires to the motherboard tray, as it divides four locations for 2.5"drives. Two need to be mounted to the motherboard tray, while the other two can fit in the black trays. With 25mm of room overall, we see no issues forthcoming.

Those of you still spinning discs, Corsair provides this removable cage with two bays. These trays can also be used for 2.5" drives and screws, or use the pins on 3.5" drives.

Without removing the HDD cage, there is limited room for a decent sized PSU along with the wires. Since the PSU has to go in first, modular connectivity can be tough, but it is doable.

The cables are long enough to get where they need to be, without a bunch of excess that needs to be tended to. All of the wires are black, and from left to right, we see the native USB 3.0 connection, the power LED, power switch and reset connections, and for audio pass-through to the bezel, there is the HD Audio connection too.
