Introduction

For a good number of years, Corsair"s chassis portfolio has been split inlớn four distinct categories. The Obsidian Series offers high-end appeal, the Graphite Series touts eye-catching curves, the Vengeance Series is aimed squarely at gamers, while the Carbide Series offers a lot of what"s good about a Corsair case at a lower price point.

Straight forward enough, yet you could argue that recent additions lớn each line have struggled lớn deliver the wow factor of some of the firm"s earlier efforts. With so many manufacturers vying for attention with new-look enclosures, Corsair needs to present something that will have enthusiasts champing at the bit & it hopes the new Crystal Series will do exactly that.

Launched today with the introduction of the 570X (pictured, $179) và 460X ($139), the Crystal Series champions popular trends such as tempered glass panelling & RGB illumination. Such features have become sought after in the self-build space, và Corsair is so confident in its implementation that it describes the Crystal Series 570X as "possibly the most beautiful case Corsair has ever made."

Bold claims, yet we can see how one might reach that conclusion as it is a terrific-looking bit of kit, with large tempered glass panels lining the front, sides & top. Dimensions of 480milimet x 234mm x 512mm make it a mid-tower proposition, yet the transparent elements allow the case to lớn appear smaller than it actually is - it"s certainly less imposing than a traditional, all-black box.

But is the 570X a classic case of size over function? Well, it"s a sort-of middle ground. There are obvious limitations of such a lavish exterior - the gaps between the glass panels mean less protection for your gear, there"s no sound dampening, dust could be an issue and cable clutter will always be visible - though such concerns are likely khổng lồ be overlooked by anyone who falls in love with the design.

It"s in the aesthetics department that the 570X scores big. Corsair"s build chất lượng appears robust throughout, with the tinted glass panels offering good thickness and a sense of sophistication that Perspex simply can"t match. Each panel is attached via four rubber-tipped thumb screws that help give the glass a floating effect, và the only potential snag in terms of looks is the design of the removable mesh filters resting behind the top và front panels. The hexagonal pattern will likely divide end users, and we"re of the opinion it unnecessarily detracts from the cleanliness & simplithành phố of the glass.

Making the most of the exterior transparency, Corsair includes a SP1đôi mươi RGB Fan Kit as standard. Fetching just over £50 at retail, the kit includes a trio of 120mm RGB fans, a six-port hub and a three-button controller. The three fans are by mặc định installed as front intakes, while the three-button controller is fixed to lớn the rear of the motherboard tray & routed to the chassis" top I/O panel for on-the-fly adjustments to colour or effect, but not fan speed. chú ý that the hub supports up to lớn six fans, meaning three more can be integrated into any chosen effect.

In an effort not to spoil the seamless front protệp tin, the I/O ports are located along the top-right edge and include a backlit power button, three lighting controls (colour, transition tốc độ & mode), as well as audio jacks and a pair of USB 3.0 ports. USB Type-C, sadly, hasn"t made the cut, and for some reason there"s no rephối button, either.

Looking good is one thing, but what"s the 570X actually lượt thích to work with? Well, it isn"t as quick to lớn disassemble as other Corsair chassis - removing the four glass panels entails 16 screws - but when it"s open the top và front magnetic filters are easily pulled away, leaving a roomy interior that is for the most part well laid out.

Motherboard sizes are supported up lớn ATX, there"s room for graphics cards measuring up lớn 370mm in length and the bottom PSU tray is covered by a shroud carrying a backlit (white) Corsair hình ảnh sản phẩm. It"s a shame the shroud doesn"t run the full length of the case in order lớn completely hide the cables, but Corsair is going by the presumption that 570X users are going lớn want to lớn install a pump & reservoir. Mounting points for said optional extras are provided lớn the right of the PSU bay, and there"s no shortage of fan-mount locations.

The front of the case can accommodate three 120milimet or dual 140mm, while the top caters for two 120mm or two 140milimet. There"s also a 120mm mount on the rear, but what"s handy is that the top & front fan mounts are on independent trays that are fixed lớn the chassis using thumb screws. Unvày the screws và the tray can be removed, allowing the user khổng lồ attach a radiator outside the case before slotting the assembled unit bachồng in place.

Style is ultimately the priority, so unsightly 5.25in optical bays have been overlooked, while the four storage bays are tucked behind the motherboard tray. These include two 2.5in & two 3.5in, all of which are plastic in material & removable if not needed. Cabling is going khổng lồ be a challenge with transparent panels on both sides, & the kết thúc result is a mixed bag. In order lớn hide as much as possible, Corsair has a removable metal column attached khổng lồ the rear of the cable-routing holes. Fixed on hinges & secured using a pair of thumb screws, it does a good job of keeping cables out of view, but it did take a fair bit of force lớn get it baông chồng on with the amount of cables in our thử nghiệm platsize.

For a case of this form size, we"re surprised to find that there are no cable-routing holes beneath the motherboard tray, & there"s also extra wiring lớn contkết thúc with on account of the RGB fans. Each người has two cables - one going lớn the hub for LED control, the other lớn the motherboard - and the controller is then routed khổng lồ the top of the case. The integration isn"t seamless, which shouldn"t come as a surprise as it is effectively a standalone RGB bạn kit added lớn a tempered glass case. These are compromises lớn be considered, yet the completed build does look smart, so let"s see if performance is up lớn scratch.
