This review is from: Corsair Vengeance Series C70 Arctic White Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: hd bays are great, can go in tooless,
solid steel, quality is amazing, perfect size for atx boards,
handles are VERY sturdy,
clasps have a trusting rugged lock,
back io panel is solidblack like the front. real unique design.
internal routing panel has tons of room. i love the little mechanisms that they provide to hold down cords without zip ties. huge fan of that. i wish corsair did more of that.
front power has white led
around 25-30 pounds with system in fully. makes it very light for a steel atx build.
matte white color makes the case look flawless instead of a glossy or metallic look that can show finger smudges.
Cons: couldnt find the ssd mounting points on the back. in mind i didnt use the manual.. not a huge gripe i just used a regular bay.
buttons on front panel are kind of weird. they dont click in any way with both power and reset idk if theyre supposed to be like that but i like a little tactile feedback.
ok this is a big one. the top mounting points for 120 rads. no.. the grommets that are provided.. do not help you have to screw them down in a way where its almost un reassuring that itll come undone because you cant tightly screw them down or else they go through the hole and there isnt anything holding onto the radiator.. not to mention it took me way longer than it should have puting it into the case because of this issue. and i feel as if my rad is gonna fall and smash my system into pieces. and it seems there is no room for push pull either so im stuck with push on higher rpm fans to make it some what do-able to have it up top on the inside. i know you could do push pull if you had fans on top of the exterior but that looks silly
other than that the case is great. i mean i dont use the front buttons often enough to complain about them in a huge way so its nothing to me honestly i was just expecting a power button to click all the way in. it just pushes in without a feedback. same with reset, you really have to push that button in for it to reset which is nice in a way but annoying. so someone couldnt just push it and reset a session.
Pros: Sturdy, black, matches my system scheme, no problems,
worked right out of the box all 4 sticks,
Other Thoughts: Build -
Asus Rog Maximus VI hero ATX
16g g.skill sniper 2133 speed
i5 4670k oc 4.4ghz
gtx evga 760 gpu
Pros: UEFI Bios
backlit integrated sound card.
great specs, got my ram to 2133 as advertised without a hitch. clocked my i5 to 4.4 with a single click in the bios. still dont know about alot of the other gadgets inside of the UEFI bios but its nothing i really need to know for what i want to do right now so.
Cons: i've been used to the plain simple BIOS For years and honestly the UEFI bios is nice but i dont like it that much.
i had trouble at first loading up my 32 bit harddrive Windows OS, so i just gave up and redownloaded onto an SSD because i kept getting an A3 debug Q Code, plus blue screens while trying to set clocks for ram and the CPU,
only reason i docked an egg was cuz of the bios, and the errors i had to deal with but i dont think thats really asus's fault. i think its because i had problems already with my drive.
Other Thoughts: now stable and new system
120 SSD Kingston
16g GSkill Sniper 2133mhz clocked
4.4ghz Core i5 4670k OC
ASUS ROG MAX 6 ATX board
GTX EVGA 760 stock clocks.
runs like a champ. pushing ultra with great frames on just about every game i play.
i assumed it would of taken me an hour to install all my new parts.. lol took nearly 3.. ha
had to flip everything around
