Corsair Graphite 380T Review

Corsair Graphite 380T Review

Introduction

We’re starting to feel a bit sorry for other PC case manufacturers.  You see Corsair are at it again adding more new members to the already excellent Graphite range.  First up we’re going to have a good old gander at the 380T.  It’s available in Black and White versions, or if you’re looking for something a little more individual, of course the eye catching Yellow we have for review.  Those of you who have been following it up to release will most likely already know that it’s designed around the M-ITX platform and is intended to be a high airflow, highly portable enclosure.  The 380T is able to accommodate both air and water cooling along with decent sized GPUs meaning that if you fall in love with it as a LAN rig you won’t have to scrimp on the contents.  For a full run down let’s take a look at the Technical Specification.
