The Build

You're never going to get a burgeoning box of accessories with a £50 case, and the same holds true here.  A few bags of assorted screws and four cable ties is your lot.  The instruction book though is a positive phone book (remember those?) with fully comprehensive instructions in a whole range of languages.

Although there are a fair few cable tie points about the place on the rear of the case we found on this occasion that the best approach with the limited space was to not bunch the cables together.  Hard though it was to fight our OC3D we simply routed them into the areas we wanted them and them and let them find their own way once the side panels were put back on.

The Havik 120 is perhaps a little too tall for the Carbide 100R but it serves to show how much room is available.  There's no space up top for 240mm rads, but it should be possible to get a 120mm rad based AIO into the rear of the case.  These though do tend to be on the noisy side, with the exception of the recently tested Fractal T12
