Corsair Carbide 330R Titanium Closer Look:

Similar to other quiet style chassis, the 330R Titanium has a door covering the whole front with some silencing foam padding. The door opens from right to left with the door latch being a small plastic pin at the top and bottom. This is something I would have liked to see as metal, because plastic becomes brittle and it's just a matter of time until it will either break off or the hooks on the door will. With the door open, you can see three external 5.25" bays along with a dust filter covering a 140mm fan. The filter pops out by pushing down on two clips at the top and pulling at the same time. Getting the filter back in was just as simple and done in a reverse order. There was some evidence of support to mount a 240mm radiator in the front, but the front panel does not allow it, nor are the hard drive cages removable.

 

Corsair took an older style route and put the I/O ports on the front of the chassis. Looking from left to right, you can see two USB 3.0 ports, and the microphone and headphone jacks. Finally, a combo of a reset and power button at the end. The design is simple and effective, making it an easy access for the consumer.

 

Below the I/O ports on the front and under the door, is a small switch, which is a fan controller. It's quite small as seen in the photo below in comparison to the microphone jack. By default, it was set to high, which made the fans run at the highest speed and lowest temperatures, but in return, it was audible even with the silencing foam. The good news is, on the medium setting I was not able to hear the fans over the internal components. This is the only major difference between the original 330R and the Titanium edition that I could find besides the front panel color change.

Inside one of the hard drive bays was a brown box containing all the screws along with a few zip ties. Originally on the outside of the case was the paper manual, which lists all the screws and a blown out diagram of the chassis. The manual, as can be seen in the pictures below, is very basic. This is okay for once, as the chassis does not have much that can removed. Therefore, a detailed manual isn't necessary.
