With so many cases on the market, the pickings can be daunting. What it all boils down to though, is what you are specifically looking for in a case. A case should be able to fulfill whatever need(s) you have. Great features like places to route cabling and tool-less solutions are just some of the many things to look for when considering a case. A case should be just as much form as it is function. A case serves to protect your components and it does this in two ways. 1) Keeping them dust free and 2) keeping them cool. When it comes to overclocking, decent cooling is a must and depending on what options you are considering, your case may hold you back. Perhaps you are considering using water cooling or even a large heatsink fitted with two 120mm fans. A case could hold you back on either of these options if it isn't capable of even fitting such a heatsink or even mounting a radiator. Today we have the Corsair Graphite Series 600T. You may be familliar with Corsair's other cases which consists of the 700T and 800T. The 600T packs quite a few options for any eager enthusiast. It can mount a dual 120mm radiator on the top panel. It can even accommodate the largest heatsink by allowing you to mount the top 120mm fans on the inside or outside of the case. These are just some of the many great features to be found in this case and by now I'm sure your interest is peaked but if you wish to know more, then you must read on!
Starting with the front of the box we have a picture of the case and below it we are advised that this case is the model 600T which is part of the Graphite Series. Also on the front is a neat paragraph which tells a bit about the reasoning behind the design features that were put into the case (which is given in multiple languages). It goes on to mention that the case, though it is a mid-tower, packs full-tower features. Some of these features include space for larger graphic cards, the ability to move around internals to improve airflow and quick release side panels. The back of the box shows an expanded diagram of the case and it explains the different components. The left and right sides of the box are pretty much the same which includes a specifications table written in five other languages.
Once open, we reveal the behemoth inside which is sandwiched between two pieces of styrofoam and even bagged inside a protective cloth bag.
So far so good and this case looks to be quite awesome. Thus far, a lot of the features found in this case sound great, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. Let's read on.
