Excerpt: Premium gaming cases are all about superior build, good air circulation, provision for liquid cooling, ease of installation and not to mention jaw-dropping aesthetics. The all-metal Vengeance C70 is Corsair’s latest mid-range offering for those seeking to build a robust PC. Let’s find out what's in the box.
Corsair Vengeance C70 Military Green vs. Thermaltake Level 10 GT Battle Edition Review
10 December 2012
Conclusion: It's no secret that we didn't enjoy the Level 10 GT's bold looks when we first reviewed it nearly two years ago, and although time hasn't changed our opinion, the case has done well for Thermaltake, reinforcing that chassis selection is very much opinion-based. With that in mind, the fact that we've found the Level 10 GT Battle Edition to be even more obnoxious than the original is probably a good thing.
Corsair Vengeance C70 Mid-Tower Gaming Case Review
1 November 2012
Excerpt: Earlier this year Corsair added the Vengeance series to their enclosure lineup and in this review we will be taking a detailed look at the Vengeance C70 mid-tower gaming case. Corsair continues to bring a full line of high quality cases, memory components, power supplies, cooling components, SSDs and accessories to market for the PC enthusiast and professional alike. The new Vengeance cases come in three different colors: Gunmetal Black, Military Green, and Arctic...
Summary: A hole in the motherboard tray simplifies the process of adjusting (or installing) aftermarket CPU coolers, and four cable-management cutouts (three rubberized, one normal) along with a few snap-locking mechanisms on the rear of the motherboard tray, help keep your system’s insides from looking like Medusa. Tight PCI thumbscrews and fan filters that kept falling out of the case’s bottom were two of our bigger frustrations with this otherwise svelte chassis.
Pros: Lots of bays; great military theming (latches and handles!); built-in standoffs.
Cons: PCI thumbscrews a pain; fan filters kept falling from case’s bottom; two USB ports on front.
Summary: Final Thoughts
When I first heard of the Vengeance C70 I thought to myself, “Oh no not another overdone military themed case”. I’ve seen so many military themed cases over the years and they are either overdone or just not done right. It seems like Corsair has hit the nail on the head with the Vengeance C70. It is the perfect blend of a military ammo box and a mid tower case. You can distinctly tell that it is made to be both things.
Pros: Extremely easy installation, Unique military features, More than enough room to route cables, Supports larger video cards, Adequate cooling, with room for expansion
Summary: Once in a while a case manufacturer dares to innovate and therefore its new breed's design deviates from the masses. Stepping away from the milked out transformer lookalikes is in fact a great idea. Though a new design must be enhanced by utilizing a non daily color range, a palette different from the ordinary grey, alu or black colors, which we are so accustomed too. Corsair is taking a different direction with their latest Vengeance C70 case series.
