Corsair 760T Review
just take my money
It seems like an age since we first saw the 760T. The internet was full of it at CES and Corsair have even made their own videos about it. So as its now going live at the end of March it feels like this case has been around for months already! There does still seem to be a lot of hype surrounding the launch and to be honest it's understandable once you start to peel away the layers and see what the case has to offer. Talking of peeling away the layers, lets take a look at the specifications and get swiftly on to the video review that you are all here for anyway!
If you're honestly interested in this case as an upgrade or possible new rig purchase, it really is worth watching the video above to get all of the details rather than the quick skim over the points we will put here.
First of all those and the most dominating feature of the case is that huge pretty much complete side panel window, it is ever so slightly smoked but its enormous size means you really can make a feature out of your entire system. This also does mean it may not be great for the lazy builders but for those of you that like to put a bit of effort in and really show case the hardware you have invested in.
Both side panels are hinged and also have magnets on the outer edge that just help to add a quality feel to what is essentially a plastic panel. The fact we are not marking this down as a negative point should show how well Corsair have done in the build and application here. This doesn't feel cheap at all and if you have cables all poked round the back, the door still snaps shut on the magnets.
The other major feature in our eyes is the water cooling support, you can get a 60mm thick triple 120mm or 140mm fan radiator (360mm/420mm) in the roof and a 240 or a 280mm monster radiator in the front but there is so much room there you can even run this in push pull. Yes that's an 80mm thick rad AND two sets of fans but it still wont impact on your main hardware area!
All in all this is a cracking case and priced at £145 we think this puts some of the £200+ cases to shame from other brands. If you like the looks of the 760T we cant think of a reason why you wouldn't want to chuck your wallet at the screen to buy one and for that reason we award it our OC3D Gold award.
On a side note we do happen to know stock isnt due for retailers until late April, we do how ever have a competition to win a custom 760T that is live HERE and could be your way to get your hands on one nice and early.
