Corsair Vengeance C70 Military Green vs. Thermaltake Level 10 GT Battle Edition Review
10 December 2012
Summary: 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.

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...
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.
Pros: – Extremely easy installation, – Unique military features, – More than enough room to route cables, – Supports larger video cards, – Adequate cooling, with room for expansion
Conclusion: The Corsair Vengeance C70 is a fun chassis. The design is different, we like the quick-release clips for the side panel, and there is nothing wrong with the finish or build quality. As long as you don't need much cooling, this is a good chassis. The cooling performance is quite poor, however.
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.
Conclusion: I’ve really enjoyed this chassis, it was easily on of the most pain free builds I’ve done yet, thanks to its quick release side panels, you can get very quick and easy access to the interior without ever having to fumble with screws around the back of the chassis, the quick release drive bays speed...
Conclusion: Important: In this section I am going to write a brief five point summary on the following categories; Performance, Appearance, Construction, Functionality and Value. These views are my own and help me to give the Vengeance C70 PC case a rating out of 10.
Pros: Great looking case, Original theme, Case handles built in, Side panel clamps look and work great, Massive side panel window, Tool free optical and hard drive bays, Supports up to six 2.5" HDD/SSD, Removable HDD racks, 8 expansion slots, Room for two 240mm long water cooling radiators, Fit up to 1...
Cons: Unfiltered side window fan vents, Heavy when full system is built inside, Big case, takes up a lot of room, Intake can become restricted if both HDD racks are full with 3.5" drives
Summary: When looking at the Corsair Vengeance C70 - especially the military green variant - some may think at first that a modder has had his fun with a standard chassis and added military elements to it.
Pros: Excellent engineering quality, Great level of details, Excellent paint job, Built-in handles, Awesome clips holding side panels in place, Extremely well engineered inside and outside, Cool Power and Reset buttons, Excellent cable routing system, Plenty of space to route cables, Parted HDD cages, ...
Cons: No water cooling grommets for the rear included, Handles only good for carrying a case for short distances
Summary: Today we’re having a look at another product from Corsair, namely the Vengeance C70. This new case comes in three colors, one of which we have on the testbench today, the military green. The Vengeance C70 certainly looks like a military product of some sort with its stylish and precise design.
