Corsair Graphite 760T Full Tower Case ReviewSun, Mar 30, 2014 - 8:00 AM
Final Thoughts and Conclusions
There are plenty of full towers available from many manufacturers, even Corsair has many full towers. So what sets the Graphite 760T apart, first it follows the design of the Graphite cases, if you liked how those look, then the 760T is a great full tower choice. The next thing is unique side panels, while other cases have had swing out side panel’s, Corsair took it one step further by making one of the panels a window. The front panel we find the usual items that include dual USB 2.0, dual SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and three 5.25″ device bays.
Overall, the build quality of the Corsair Graphite 760T is will be hard to beat; it’s exactly what we expect from a top tier company like Corsair. There are no sharp corners, everything necessary to do a complete system install is included. If we take a look at the side panels, the poly-carbonate side panel is a great idea, it looks great against the case and provide a full view of the system components. While it has some flex in the panels, that is really a minor issue as once the panels are closed, they do their job rather well and in style.
No matter how great a case is, there is always room for improvement. Two items stand out as needing attention, the first is the bottom 120mm fan location, on other cases Corsair includes a filter, why skip that on the Graphite 760T. Second, the risers that the power supply rests on is steel, it is possible this could cause some vibration noise, put some anti-vibration rubber on these and then it won’t be a concern; again, Corsair has done this on other cases.
With around 1.25″ of space behind the motherboard tray, there is no reason cable management should be difficult. Corsair has provided plenty of cable tie locations to get those cables secured and moved out of the way. The hidden 2.5″ drive mounts are well placed, allowing the covers to be seen from the front, while keeping the connections hidden on the back side.
Cooling a case of this size, 22.4″ x 9.7″ x 22.2″ (HxWxD), might be difficult, if it wasn’t for the seven fan locations, and the integrated three fan speed controller; or if you would rather, you can install liquid cooling radiators in four different locations ranging from 120mm up to 360mm in length.
Corsair plans to begin shipping the Graphite 760T in North America at the end of April 2014, and had placed a suggested retail price of $189 for the Arctic White version and $179 for the Black edition; which both come with a 2 year warranty. At those prices, the features that the 760T provides it isn’t a bad price.
Legit Bottom Line: The Corsair Graphite 760T is a great full tower case with many cooling options, and huge possibilities for expansion. If you like to show off your hardware, and a full tower is your preferred form factor, then the 760T is the case for you.
