Corsair’s 4000D Cases Let You Prioritize Airflow or Clean Aesthetics

Corsair’s 4000D and 4000D Airflow cases (which were first spotted on Amazon back in July) get official today. The ATX cases both sport an understated boxy design with a tool-free tempered-glass side panel. The key difference between the two is the 4000D has a solid steel front (with vents on the sides), while the 400D Airflow’s front is generously ventilated with a diamond pattern. We have both models on the test bench, and you can expect reviews soon to see if they land on our best PC cases page.

The mid-tower cases focus on cable management, with a “RapidRoute” channel system and 25mm (1 inch) of space behind the motherboard. And both ship with 120mm AirGuide fans with “anti-vortex vanes” to concentrate airflow. Both cases will be offered in white or black, and cooling support includes up to six 120mm fans (or four 140mm plus a 120mm rear exhaust). Radiator support is ample, with 280mm at the top (or 240mm if you have tall RAM), 360mm in the front and 120mm at the back.

Storage isn’t a priority with these cases, but with mounts for two 2.5-inch drives and a tray for either two 3.5-inch or two more 2.5-inch drives (plus whatever your motherboard offers in terms of M.2) that’s enough for most system builders.

The top panel gives you two USB ports -- one 3.0 Type-A and one 3.1 Type-C -- alongside an audio combo jack and power and reset buttons.

Both the 4000D and the 4000D Airflow will be available for the same MSRP, $79.99 in the US and £79.99 in the UK (including VAT). Again, stay tuned in the coming days for a full review of these budget-friendly cases to find out how they perform, particularly against our current mid-range pick, Lian Li’s similarly priced Lancool II Mesh.
