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: 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.
Corsair Graphite Series 760T Full Tower Computer Case Review
31 March 2014
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.
Corsair Graphite Series 730T & 760T Full Tower Chassis Review
27 March 2014
Conclusion: Both the 760T and the 730T are some of the best examples of high-end chassis products that are available on the market today, sure enough it is hard to find a “bad” product when you’re spending in excess of £100, but finding the one that is right for you or your system is the tricky part. Both of these new entries to the Graphite series tick a lot of boxes, they’re prime choices for anyone looking to build a high-end system.
Pros: Extensive options for air and water cooling, Magnetic top panel cover looks great, Easy access dust filters on PSU and front panel, Three high quality 140mm fan pre-installed, Fully modular and expandable hard drive bays, Four 2.5″ hard drive mounts behind motherboard, Impressive cable routing, Reliable build quality, Unique and visually stunning side panel window design (760T only), Two channel fan controller included (760T only), Very competitive price tag (730T only)
Cons: No dust filter for bottom fan mount, no dust / debris filter for top panel
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: The Corsair Graphite 760T is the company's latest addition to a series designed to offer versatility to advanced users. It would seem that Corsair released it as an advanced version of the basic 230T and a successor to the highly successful 600T. As such, the Graphite 760T is a product that should have been perfectly balanced, both practically and aesthetically, as it targets a very broad but highly demanding audience.
