Corsair Carbide 330R

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm currently in the process of upgrading my PC for better cooling during gaming.

Currently considering Corsair Carbide 330R but not sure if it has good enough airflow. One of the reasons for considering this case is that it can fit a DVD-ROM.

Furthermore, I'm considering Noctua NH-D15 or Corsair H115i for CPU cooling, so any recommendation will need to fit these.


Is Carbide 330R good enough? Any recommendations is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

GPU MSI Geforce GTX 1060 Armor 6G OCV1
PSU Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus 550W 
Case Cooler Master Elite 310
