Corsair Graphite 760T Full-Tower Windowed Case Review
10 July 2014
Excerpt: Corsair is on a roll in 2014 as they continue to expand their PC enclosure lineup. Today we are taking a detailed look at Corsair’s new Graphite Series 760T Arctic White Full-Tower Windowed case (the 760T is also available in black). In addition to the 760T, the Graphite Series currently includes the 730T Full-tower, the 600T Mid-Tower, and the 230T Compact Mid-Tower cases.
Summary: The Corsair Graphite Series 760T is a great all around chassis. It has something to offer just about everyone but that isn't to say it doesn't have a few minor drawbacks. The lack of padding for the PSU is a bit disappointing as are the metal plugs in the back of the case for external water cooling. We prefer to see companies use standard rubber grommets instead because, once the metal plugs are removed, they leave unsightly holes in the back of the case.
Summary: Corsair's new Graphite Series 760T Arctic White Full Tower Windowed Case is extremely easy on the eyes and as the name implies it allows us to see in, but with the 760T it is a full clear panel that gives it an elegant look. There is room for plenty of fans with speed controllers to keep it cool as well, plus a host of other features.
Excerpt: We last saw a full tower case from Corsair back in September, when I took a good long look at the Obsidian 750D. It was a pretty sweet case, but lacked a few desired features in my view. Today, we're looking at another case from Corsair in the Graphite 760T. Will Corsair outdo themselves with this one? Only one way to find out.

Summary: The latest 760T case from Corsair takes part of the Graphite series and features specially designed side panels which allow a full-view of the system during operation. The inside quite spacious and was built with both air and water cooling in mind. Thanks to the modular drive cages, we have multiple mounting possibilities and the integrated fan controller allows running in both Silent (7V) and Full Speed (12V) modes.
Summary: Just as with the Obsidian 750D, there is very little wrong with the Graphite 760T. Corsair has done a great job in growing the 230T's look into what we saw today, and while the 760T is considerably more expensive than the 750D was at launch, there is some added value to be had. There are its hinged doors and the two-speed fan controller, and gone are the bumps for the motherboard, which is a good little upgrade. There is also a functional stealth cover now.
Pros: Excellent construction, Great water-cooling possibilities, Three 140 mm AF140L fans included, Lots of space behind motherboard tray, Excellent cable-routing and hiding possibilities, Excellent 2.5" brackets on the backside of the motherboard tray, Modular hard-drive cages, Great tool-less installation method for drives, Tension locks for optical drive bays work well, Massive window, Fan controller included, Latches for the doors, Doors swing open nicely, Dust filter o...
Cons: No external 3.5" drive, Hard-drive cages cannot be secured when hung from the top down, Using a long radiator will block a 5.25" bay, No lock on latches, HDD trays work, but have a tiny bit of play, No USB 3.0 to 2.0 adapter, Very few zip ties
Summary: The Corsair Graphite 760T is a great full tower case with many cooling options, and huge possibilities for expansion. If you like to show off your hardware, and a full tower is your preferred form factor, then the 760T is the case for you.
Summary: It is rare that I am impressed by merely the aesthetics and functionality of a chassis, yet the Graphite 760T ticks all the boxes on my wish-list, and then some more. Now that is a bit dangerous as I allow my personal preference to influence the conclusion a little. I do understand that taste differs per person, so it is pretty hard to remain objective here when we talk about aesthetics.
Conclusion: The proliferation of Corsair's portfolio has given consumer's a massive choice of enclosures across the Carbide, Graphite and Obsidian Series product lines. Whether you're in the market for a Mini ITX, Cube, Mid-Tower or Full-Tower solution, Corsair now has a viable option available. Choice is a good thing for system builders, however the problem facing Corsair is that it has stand-out features scattered across multiple products, and no single chassis has it all.
Conclusion: Corsair tells us the Graphite 760T will carry a MSRP of $189, which in my opinion is a terrific value. To be honest, once I laid eyes on it and actually started building a system in it, I totally expected a price of around $229 or so. I certainly can’t complain about the price. The Graphite 760T is unique by design and very functional in nature, which will make it stand out in the crowded full tower case market.
