Clean and Cool: The 5000D makes a stunning, showpiece-worthy PC easy to build, and even easier to keep cool with the space and flexibility to mount multiple 360mm radiators.
Two Included 120mm Fans: CORSAIR AirGuide fans utilize anti-vortex vanes to concentrate airflow and enhance cooling.Corsair is launching a new line of cases hot off the heels of the 4000 series. The 5000 series of cases share many of the nice features found on the 4000, while providing more space for additional cooling capabilities. The CORSAIR 5000D AIRFLOW is a mid-tower ATX case that shows off your PC, and not its cables, finished with an airflow-optimized front panel for maximum ventilation to your system. CORSAIR RapidRoute cable management keeps your cables out of sight, but easy to route with 25mm of depth. A wealth of flexible cooling options let you build your PC your way, including room to mount up to 10x 120mm fans or multiple 360mm radiators, and a motherboard tray with customizable side fan mounts. Two CORSAIR AirGuide fans offer directed airflow to your PC's hottest components, while room for four storage drives and a modern front I/O panel, including a USB-C port, ensure your PC is ready for this upgrade, and the next.
Motherboard Tray with Customizable Fan Mounts: Side-mount up to 3x 120mm fans or up to a 360mm radiator, enabling new flexible cooling options.
Two Included 120mm Fans: CORSAIR AirGuide fans utilize anti-vortex vanes to concentrate airflow and enhance cooling. Our criticisms of the 5000D AirFlow are fairly minor points but we think we have the measure of the situation.
if there's glass too close to the GPU fans, you can blow all you want against the glass, it won't do much good (except cool a bit the fins from the outside) but the GPU fans are just depleted of airflow.Most are done for cases with a completely opened PCIE area (no steel ribs between slots). The 5000D isn't. So if you want to use one of those you'll have to take the dremel out. Next I decided to install the vertical GPU mount, which requires two standoffs that come with the case — not the cable itself! You install the standoffs into the case and then mount the extension cable with two screws, while flexing the cable in an S-shape into the PCIe slot. Then you just install the graphics card and you're done. In my opinion the vertical mount looks very nice, filling the space better than the horizontal orientation. This gives a nice glimpse of the otherwise unseen face of your often very expensive graphics card too. Vertical installations really do look sharp! High-Airflow Front Panel: An optimized steel front panel delivers massive airflow to your system for maximum cooling.
