Pros: This case looks awesome!
good cable management.
Cons: Build quality with the metal trim.
Other small issues with the build quality.
Overall Review: After 2 days the trim on the case started to peel off. What the #@!@. This case costs A LOT more then others and yet it has worse build quality. Corsair I expect better from you on this.
Pros: For those who are familiar with Doctor Who, it's very much like a T.A.R.D.I.S.: it feels bigger on the inside. TONS of space to work with, lots of cable management space and cable tie-down points. Room for at least up to a 45mm thick radiator in the roof with a single set of fans and enough room in the front for a Monsta rad in push-pull. Dust filtering is nice; the bottom fan location lacks any but realistically that's not the biggest deal. The SSD trays are very easy to work with and make a nice showing of an otherwise ignored component in your system. The acrylic is smoked, making any light inside the case a bit more gentle. Grommets are sturdy and stay in place easily. The side panels are insanely easy to work with and the lynch pin system they use for the door hinges is brilliant. The top cover creates a very clean look for the roof of the case should you decide to keep the roof fans out of the equation and is held in place with several small magnets (similar to the doors). Stock fans are insanely quiet, and at full speed really only generate the sound of rushing wind rather than an irritating coil whine or gritty roar from shoddy bearings. The integrated fan speed controller is of very high quality: even though there are only four channels present I am able to take at least one channel and run a splitter off of it to run the two fans from my Glacer 240L with no problems whatsoever. The case is shockingly durable for having side panels made mostly of plastic/acrylic. The drive cages are plentiful at stock, removable, or if you are one who uses several hard drives can be expanded upon through Corsair's website to allow you to hold up to 12 hard drives (can hold six out of the box, and installing the optional cages may eliminate your ability to use the SSD sleds depending on hardware configuration).
Cons: Not really very many: there is a very small imperfection in the acrylic for the left panel near the front of the latch: this particular imperfection seems to be prevalent in these cases at the moment, though it isn't noticeable until you focus really close near the area it's located and intentionally look for it. To be fair though it sits on an area of the acrylic that sits in front of part of the black frame so you'd never know it was there. Anything else I could think that's wrong would be even MORE nit-picky than I'm already being.
Overall Review: If ever you wanted a proper successor to the Graphite 600T and really wanted to show off your build in the best way possible, look no further than this case. It's worth every single penny of the asking price, is extremely flexible in terms of build options, comes with nice standard features, requires little/no modding to be excellent and will assuredly last you a long time.
Pros: - Really good packaging, case is in a large box protected by very high quality foam. If you do purchase this tower, it will arrive in mint condition.
-Large and roomy. Will fit most components out there.
-This is the best looking case (IMO) and I will admit that I bought it purely for aesthetics. But, it does come with many features for its premium such as a fan control+hub. USB 3.0 x2, Quality corsair fans, and easy to remove dust filters.
Cons: -It's very expensive. You WILL find better options. This case easily loses to enthoo luxe when comparing features, quality, etc.
-It's not the most sturdy case, but unless you're traveling a lot along with it, you won't find any problems with the build quality which is mainly steel and plastic.
Overall Review: I had a REALLY difficult time choosing between the Luxe and the 760t. When I caught this guy on sale for 169.99 with a $20 rebate, I couldn't resist. I never looked back. The case Is much more gorgeous in person. Yes, the Luxe is still cheaper and has an all aluminum structure. But, this case is too darn sexy. It has a very unique, sleek look that makes it stand out compared to other cases. No regrets and highly satisfied overall. Well played, Corsair.
Pros: Completely aesthetically appeasing. Just gorgeous. The amount of room in this case is just ridiculous, there is so much room for cable management, water cooling loop, and you can fit in a lot of fans.
Cons: 2 cons about the case: 1.) My optical drive would not fit in the first driver bay so i had to put it in the second bay, really inconvenient :p. 2.) The hatches are kind of wonky. Whenever i shut the side panels sometimes the hatches will stay open. Very odd but not worth an egg deduction.
Pros: Looks fantastic, intelligently arranged and designed, more than enough room to accomodate the larger cards (I installed an R9 290). Did I mention it looks fantastic? I ordered mine in white with the blue fan LEDs. Really top notch.
The removable dust screens are super, and plenty of room for cable management behind the pass-throughs.
It's a little pricey I guess, but it should be able to stand up through at least one overhaul in another three or four years.
Cons: The white finish scratches a little easy. Be careful and work on a soft surface.
Pros: Case looks amazing and its way bigger than i thought would be.
Cons: Shipped with only one motherboard stand off screw.
Pros: -Excellent air cooling, CPU and GPU temperatures actually dropped 5-6°C compared to the Corsair 550D I had before, and I'm using a 3930k and a GTX 780 Lightning.
-Modern, unique gaming case without going overboard on the LEDs.
-Big case with a lot of room inside; I honestly thought the case was going to be smaller but this is a plus in my opinion.
-LARGE side window which allows you to view the entirety of your build.
-Easily fits any big AIO water cooler with a push/pull setup such as the H110 with room to spare.
-There are covers for your optical drives in the front of the case which is a nice add-on (optical drives kinda break the overall aesthetics of the case when they're out in the open).
Cons: The only con that I am aware of : the windowed side panel came scratched from the factory and it has some sort of... permanent "fingerprints" in a few areas - like if someone rubbed something against the window - and I can't remove them!
When I started assembling my computer, I safely removed both side panels and placed them somewhere safe without even peeling the protective plastic on them just so it wouldn't have any scratches on them.
After I finished my build, I put them back on and removed the protective plastic from both side and lo and behold, there were already several imperfections on the side window -_-;
I decided to keep the case anyway, since I didn't want to undo my build, send it back and wait a week to receive another one - which might end up being even worse than this one!
Overall Review: Even though the windowed side panel came with a few imperfections from the factory, it is not a deal breaker and I would still recommend this case to friends - provided they aren't as perfectionist as I am!
Pros: Hands down the best case I've ever owned. This case was so easy to work in. My previous case was the HAF-X which was also an awesome case. The 760T blows it out of the water on looks and noise reduction. The fully swinging doors are amazing and more sturdy than they look in pictures. There is also PLENTY of room in the back panel to route tons of cables. This case is also deceivingly large. I currently have two Sapphire R-290's in there with ample room. The windowed side panel is every bit as nice as it looks in the pictures and better.
Cons: No real cons other than a lack of fan filters at the top and bottom.
Overall Review: Some special notes.
There's room at the bottom for a case fan under the first drive bay once removed. This is good, but why they don't have holes for a140mm case fan is beyond me. There's so much room there. But there's only holes for 120mm case fan. That fan option also doesn't come with a built in fan filter. I purchased an aftermarket magnetic one and just stuck it to the bottom of the case.
There's no room or holes for a case can under the second drive bay once it is removed (front most drive bay) Which I don't really understand since the interior of this case is very similar to the 700d.
Concerning builds that will include a corsair h100i. Please note the spacing on the top most aluminum heat sink on your motherboard. If the heat sink goes right to the edge of the top of the pcb then you will not have enough room to set up a push pull type configuration on the rad. Just dual fans in either push or pull will work. I also don't believe the water lines are long enough for the rad to be installed on the front of the case.
