Hyte Y60 PC Case Review
Meet the Hyte Y60
It’s always great to see a new manufacturer enter the PC gaming market. New companies can often bring fresh ideas to the table, unorthodox new designs that can push the industry in a new direction or place a sharp focus on the downsides of many existing products.
With their new Y60 chassis, Hyte has focused on delivering a PC enclosure that looks like nothing else on the market today. While some of our readers have already called this case the “Fish Tank”, many others have praised its wrap-around features. The lines of the case’s fan filters neatly wrap around the whole of the Y60, and its tempered glass panels deliver a neat wrap around look that other cases do not offer.
What the Hyte Y60 has is style, a look and feel that nobody else currently offers. The case is striking and is designed to showcase your hardware from a lot of angles. Vertically mounted GPU support? Yes! Space for liquid cooling radiators and tubing? Yes! Plenty of space to hide cables at the rear? Yes! This case is designed to look good.Â Â Â
Colour options and Pricing
The Hyte Y60 has launched with an MSRP of $199.99 in the US. Sadly, we have not been given official UK pricing for this product. At launch, this case will be available in white, red and black. Today, we will be looking at this case’s white model.Â
In the US, Hyte has confirmed that this case will be available from Amazon, Microcenter, NewEgg, BH, Adorama, and GameStop. European availability for the Hyte Y60 is expected between March 21st and 25th.Â
Specifications and Half Height PCIe Slots
Unlike most modern PC cases, the Hyte Y60 is designed with vertically mounted graphics cards in mind. This design decision limits the size of most of this case’s PCIe slots, giving the Y60 a single full high PCIe mounting location (3-slots vertical), and six half-height PCIe slots.
This design is limiting, but half-height PCIe are readily available if you want an audio card, a capture card, or a networking card. The Hyte Y60 supports two 3.5-inch HDDs or four 2.5-inch SSDs, motherboards up to EATX in size and ATX power supplies that are up to 225mm long. The case also supports multiple large liquid cooling radiators, and has plenty of space where users can mount a pump/reservoir within their systems.
