Corsair Vengeance C70 Military Green Case ReviewMon, May 21, 2012 - 12:00 AM
External Impressions of the Vengeance C70
With the Vengeance C70 out of the box we can get a good look at it. The version we have is the Military Green. The whole case is painted inside and out. For the case parts outside of the front I/O if it is not painted olive drab its black. After seeing nothing but black and white cases for so long, the green is a nice change of pace.
At the very top of the front panel is the front I/O. From left to right; Power, drive activity LED, audio ports, USB3 ports, and the reset button. To hit the reset button you have to lift a cover plate to hit it.
Top of the case has space for two fans. There are also two carry handles.
The handles are held down with not in use with spring pressure. This will keep them from rattling with the system in use or flopping about when the system is being transported.
The side panel features a smoked window. The window has space for mounting two 120mm fans.
To access the inside you have to undo the side panel latches. These remind me of ammo can latches.
Moving around to the back there are two water cooling holes, but to use them you have to knock out the hole cover. There are 8 expansion slots. Each of the slot covers are vented. There is also an area above the reat I/O and the expansion slot that is vented as well.
Looking at the right side of the case it is pretty bland, but this military green version is begging for a 1930-40’s era military pin-up to be painted on it.
Laying the Vengeance C70 on its side we see that it has two lower dust filters.
With them removed we can see that pretty much the entire bottom of the case is vented.
