When Corsair releases a case, they watch which features are popular and incorporate those into their next case line. When they released the Graphite 600T the side panels and the front I/O cluster were hits, however it was only a mid-tower with customizable interior to fit larger than normal systems in a mid-tower case. Taking the side panel style and front I/O cluster, Corsair expanded that into a full tower case and provided some additional popular features such as hidden 2.5″ hard drives, large liquid cooling radiator support and an updated design. Corsair sent over the White model of the Graphite 780T for us to take a look at. Let’s take a quick look at some of the features before we get to unboxing their latest case.
Internally, the Corsair Graphite 780T supports up to six 3.5″ hard drives, and two 5.25″ devices. For 2.5″ drives, there are three hidden trays behind the motherboard tray, which allows for over nine hard drives without converting the 5.25″ device bays to hard drive storage. The storage options are nearly limitless in this case.
Measuring 27.13in x 13.07in x 26.38in, this is a very large case, as a full tower it can support the largest components. The motherboard alone supports E-ATX and Xl-ATX, for graphics card it’ll take the longest of cards, supporting up to 14″ video cards without removing the 3.5″ hard drive cages. Cooling options are varied between air cooling and liquid cooling; there is room for up to nine 120mm fans, or liquid cooling radiators from 120mm to 360mm (two locations can support 360mm radiators).
Corsair has followed their standard pricing model for the Graphite 780T, with three models available, the White (CC-9011059-WW), and Yellow (CC-9011064-WW) models have a suggest retail price of $189.99, while the Black (CC-9011063-WW) model has a list price of $179.99. All of which are easy to find at various online retailers and they all come with a 2-year warranty from Corsair.
