Excerpt: I have seen over the last year, maybe even two, that there is a definite trend to offering users a "white" option when it comes to case color choices. Most of the cases I have seen up to this point started with modders painting the cases they already had. This led to a lot of feedback from users on the forums where these cases were shown, and the manufacturers saw the opportunity to make their mark and offer users a modded-like chassis straight out of the box.

Summary: Final Thoughts
As I said earlier in this review all Corsair products either are best in class or right up there, so does the 600T make the cut? It sure does, it is everything that a case should be. Starting out with the build quality the internal steel chassis feels very strong and sturdy. There is some plastic on this case, but it feels very solid. The case doors come off very easily and the latch system works great and I wouldn’t expect the latches to break either.
Pros: Great design, 4x USB 2.0 ports, 1x USB 3.0 port and 1x firewire port, Great cooling and fan controller included, Easy installation, Cable routing is made easy
Cons: Would have been nice to see a 6pin CPU power cable extender included
Excerpt: It’s no secret that we really like Corsair’s full-tower case, the 800D. That chassis earned a Kick Ass Award for its no-nonsense exterior, gloriously roomy interior, and its mysterious ability to make every build look fantastic. Of course, it was enormous and cost close to $300. So we had high hopes for the mid-tower 600T: Sure, it’s graphite-colored and clad in (gasp!) curvy plastic, but it’s still Corsair on the inside, right? The 600T is big for a mid-tower.
Pros: Absolute joy to build into; good looks, differentiated from Corsair's full-towers; good value.
Cons: No side fan; some kinda-high GPU temperatures.
Summary: Corsair is slowly venturing into all types of markets. The company is no longer just offering memory, but also power supplies, water and air cooling, SSDs and cases. With the Graphite 600T the company has once more underlined their commitment to offer enclosures which are not simply run of the mill, but are engineered specifically by Corsair to offer a great set of functionality along with some beefy design.
Pros: Excellent engineering quality, Great external looks, Excellent paint job, Large clips to hold the side panels in place, Very well thought out internals, New and unique locking mechanism for ODDs, Excellent cable management possibilities, Plenty of space for water cooling, Spacious interior, USB 3.0 connectivity, Large opening in the mainboard tray, Can hold large graphic cards and CPU coolers without loosing HDD bays, Eight mainboard expansion slots, Manual fan contro...
Cons: No real dust filter in front, You will loose LED feature if you replace the fans, No adapter for USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 header included
Excerpt: In late August of 2009 I was blessed with looking at the only chassis to make a permanent home for my gaming and work PC. Before that, I was just constantly changing cases in search for the one case out there that would fit my needs and look very good doing it. What I ended up with is the most loved case I have seen since I started writing reviews, and that case is the Obsidian 800D from Corsair.
Excerpt: 4 Flares 4 Flares × Corsair have been building on their success in the memory business, expanding into many other areas of tech in the past few years. But they haven’t done so in a half-hearted way – each new product they have launched has been class leading like their H70 watercooler which we reviewed recently. Today we’re going to look at Corsair’s latest PC case, the Graphite 600T, which fits in at the bottom of their range beneath the popular Obsidian series.
Excerpt: A Corsair é uma das marcas da moda. Há poucos entusiastas que não confiam à Corsair, algum componente do seu querido PC. A Corsair já é referência em memórias , SSD s, soluções de refrigeração a água sem manutenção, fontes de alimentação e mais. Além dos seus produtos, a Corsair cuida bem do cliente e acaba por fidelizar mais tarde ou mais cedo pelo excelente suporte pós venda.
Pros: Zeer veel ruimte in de kast. Je kunt er gemakkelijk zeer grote onderdelen in kwijt., Je kunt de HDD drives van elkaar afhalen en zelfs naast de voeding installeren. Dit is handig als je een directe airflow op je videokaart wilt hebben., Ingebouwde fan controller voor 4 fans., Meer dan genoeg kabel management mogelijkheden., Stoffilters kun je er zo uitklikken of uitschuiven., Je krijgt bij deze kast zowel een raam als een mesh die je op de zijpaneel kan bevestigen., O...
Cons: De koeling met de standaard fans erin is slecht. Ik heb de 200mm fan aan de voorkant vervangen (BitFenix Spectre Pro 200m) en twee performance fans toegevoegd. Dit loste het probleem aardig op., De grid aan de voorkant van de kast -- waar een 200mm fan is bevestigd -- begint te trillen als de fan veel lucht de kast inblaast. Dit zorgt voor een vervelende gezoem (en merkbare vibraties als je je hand erop legt).
