Three New PC Cases Unveiled by CorsairCategory: Cases
Posted: June 3, 2014 03:36PM
Corsair is no stranger to the world of computer computers, and has recently introduced three new ones to its lineup. Two of them are in the Graphite Series, while the third is part of its Carbide Series. The Graphite Series 780T is a full tower case with a uniquely designed exterior that should help set it apart from others. It has a large side window panel featuring an easy-open latch, so accessing the interior shouldn't be a problem. Inside are nine expansion slots for any number of add-in cards, as well as enough room to fit two 360mm radiators for an extreme watercooling setup, plus nine hard drives. A built-in three-mode fan controller lets you pinpoint the cooling potential of the three included AF-140 140mm fans, with quick access on the top I/O panel. That I/O panel also includes two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, audio in/out, and a power button in the vein of a Start/Stop ignition button like you'd find on certain cars.
The other Graphite Series member is the 380T, which is a portable mini-ITX case. It honestly looks like the 780T got chopped in half, as the styling of the smaller case echoes the big brother. There's a windowed side panel with an easy-open latch, and inside is room for four 3.5/2.5-inch hard drives and a full-length graphics card. Five fans can also fit inside, or a 240mm radiator for the watercooling crowd. A Corsair AF-140 140mm fan and AF-120 120mm fan are included by default, which can be controlled by that three-mode fan controller also seen on the 780T. Two USB 3.0 ports, audio in/out, and that same Start/Stop power button adorn the top I/O panel.
The Carbide Series case is the Air 240, which can fit either micro ATX or mini-ITX setups. It's a cube-shaped case, much like the Air 540, so the hottest running components will benefit from the best possible airflow. Hard drives and the power supply can remain out of sight from the side panel window, and also not block any airflow. Three AF-120 120mm fans are included in the Air 240, and users can even add a 240mm radiator (or two) if they desire. Two USB 3.0 ports and audio in/out reside on the front I/O panel.
All three Corsair cases are available black or white colors, with the Graphite Series 380T and Carbide Series Air 240 launching this August. The Graphite Series 780T follows in September. Pricing on the Graphite Series 380T comes in at $129.99, the Graphite Series 780T between $179.99 and $189.99, and the Carbide Series Air 240 between $89.99 and $99.99.
