Corsair is showing off a bunch of products for the very first time this year at Computex 2010 here in Taipei and the very first product is a new case series called Graphite. The first case in the Graphite series will be the 600T, which is pictured above. The Corsair Graphite 600T is a mid-tower PC case that is due to come out to the market later this summer for right around $150. What do you get for the $150 price point? A fair amount of great features that any gamer or enthusiast would be happy to have.
We got a chance to talk to John Beekly from Corsair about this case, but we also shot a quick 720P video that we uploaded to YouTube that lets you hear what the Corsair Graphite 600T is all about. You can check out the 4 minute video above and then some of the higher resolution images below for the detail specific areas.
Both of the side panels on the Corsair Graphite 600T chassis are held on by spring loaded push down levers that are very easy to put on and remove. The side panel is a matte black, while the feet and some of the interior feature gloss black accents. Corsair put some time into the design of this case and you can tell by just looking at the side of it. When it comes to height, the Corsair Graphite 600T measures in at 10.4” (W) x 20” (H) x 23.3” (D).
Moving around to the front we can see that it is full mesh, for great airflow. Even the top has mesh on it. This 600T prototype has a hand made top cover on it that was formed over wood, so it looks a little rougher than what will be on the retail models that ship later this summer. Corsair also said that they would use larger mesh on the retail models. Notice the inside lip of the front ‘bezel’ is painted glossy black.
The front of Corsair Graphite 600T is very simple and like we showed in the video, the entire case can be picked up with the front plastic trim. Corsair designed this case to be tough and we like to see that in cases that will retail at $150 like the 600T does.
The top mesh on the Corsair Graphite 600T is removable by just pressing on it to release it from a couple push clamps. This allows for easy cleaning of the mesh, but it also gives you space to mount up to a 240mm radiator on top of the PC case. With the top cover being removable you don’t have to worry if the radiator for your water cooling loop will fit or not.
The front 200mm fan does have a filter for it and can be accessed
with this pop down door that is quick and easy to get to. The power
supply has a slide out filter on the bottom of the rear of the case to
ensure the power supply gets a clean air supply. We forgot to take a
picture of that one, but it looks like any other slide out fan filter. Let’s take a peak inside the 600T!
