Closer look at the interior

Removing the thumbscrews to relieve the case of its side panel you can get a good glance of the interior of the 200R. Corsair did a good job of keeping the case clean and well organized. The interior is all-black.

In the motherboard tray is a very large cutout for the CPU cooler and three large oval openings for routing cases to the rear of the tray.

For storage there are four bays for 3.5” drives and four more for 2.5” drive. The 2.5/3.5” drive cages can be removed to better support longer video cards. With the cage installed the cage supports cards as long as 300mm and without it the length grows to 430mm.

Each of the drives including optical devices is secured using plastic mechanisms. The optical bays have these brackets pre-installed and the ones for the smaller drives have to be mated to the drive first and then sled into place.

Upfront is a single 120mm cooling fan with the option to add a second 120mm if user so desire. To help protect your precious components there is a dust filter mounted upfront as well. But in order to access the fan mounted here or to even clean the filter the front fascia needs to be removed.

Looking at the top of the case from the inside you can see how easy it would be to install one of their AIO coolers.

Even in a cost effective case Corsair aligned all the expansion slots with thumbscrews and not the simple screws we often see in many cheaper cases.
