A Detailed Look from the Outside
The Corsair Carbide 330R Titanium Edition Quiet Mid-Tower case is made from a combination of steel and plastic parts. The overall fit and finish of the 330R Titanium case is good but understandably not of the same quality as some of Corsair’s other high-end cases. The case is painted black inside and out. The riveted SECC chassis is light weight but rigid and the black matte powder coat finish matches the black plastic parts well.
The hinged front door is reversible and made out of plastic with a brushed aluminum front plate that is anodized gun-metal gray (Titanium) to match some of Corsair’s other accessories. The inside of the front door is covered with sound absorption material. Opening the door exposes three external 5.25” drive bays, which are fitted with plastic covers. The lower section of the front panel is covered by an easily removed dust filter and the 5.25” bay covers also contain vent openings with dust filters.
The 330R Quiet case comes with one 140mm intake fan located behind the grill in the mid-section with a second optional fan location below it. The fan blows air directly into the main chamber of the case and is not restricted by a HDD cage. A second optional fan could be used to blow air in across the internal HDD cage.
Note the small 3-position fan control switch just below the top I/O panel in the center above the top 5.25” drive bay cover.
Both side panels are removable and secured with two thumb screws at the back. The side panels are solid (no window option) and covered with sound absorption foam on the inside. In practice, both side panels are relatively easy to take off and re-install and fit securely once in place.
