Corsair Graphite 380T Review
Up Close: Exterior Overview and roof
If you don't like yellow then have no fear as the 380T is also available in classic White or Black. If howeveryou do like yellow, then you're going to love the two tone Yellow and Black version we have for review. (and before you head over to the comments section to tell us what it reminds you of, bear in mind we shall be deducting points for lack of originality). Colour aside, we can't help but like the curved cubic aesthetic
Viewed from above we can now see that the mesh side panels are actually topped off with acrylic sections allowing a view down into the case
The case exterior is symmetrical from left to right. The side panels being interchangeable and are released by pulling lightly up on the catch at the top of each panel. There's also a good sized carry handle centrally located on the top of the case which should prove large enough and comfortable for all but the largest ham fists to hold. Although not rubberised, the underside of the grip is textured to add that little bit of extra grip when carrying.
At the front edge of the case roof we find the Front I/O, We doubt it's accidental that the 380T takes its design keys from exotic supercars. You've only got to look at the I/O panel with it's Start/Stop ignition style button and and indeed the roof section with "engine" viewing panels to imagine what sort of posters the designer has on his wall
The Hex mesh of the side panels is continued to the entirety of the front grill, with a subtle Corsair badge reminding you of the quality product you have in front of you. The case sits on two long feet, each of which has a full length rubber damping strip fixed to its underside. Although the feet might look to be something of a weak point they are in fact very robust.
