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.

Yep i've pulled some strings and you have been granted full authorization to like this case . I also am quite a fan having seen one in the flesh I was impressed by the finish and thought it looked like a real quality product. The price however I really wasn't ready for and i'm not sure exactly what it offers to justify it internally. I have no problem with expensive cases but it would of been nice to have a little more native radiator support although I still honestly really like it, I think it got a fair award, the gold seems to go out too easily at times. I look forward to seeing how people build and mod with it.

Well it is... different. That shape is pretty neat. Its a pretty competitive market so it'll be interesting to see how it does.

-edit-
My guess it won't be super popular.Quote

Are you sure you can fit in a 120mm rad in the back exhaust? I tried but it didn't fit in.Quote
