    Re: Corsair Crystal Series 570X RGB

    I love the visual design of this case on its own - but I do think the on-show wiring from the PSU ruins it IMO. Perhaps some creative cable tidy techniques could be used to make the wiring look "good" however even my budget CIT G Force case hides my wiring better and looks tidier compared to this when fully installed, due to the way the PSU is fully shrouded and lets me feed cabling through the back panel space. It has nowhere near as good build quality as this of course, but still, that seems a bit of an oversight.

    It does look nice, but possibly looks a touch too much. For my own tastes, the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv Tempered Glass strikes the right balance of what to show or not. Still wouldnt turn one down as a freebie though

    Looks nice but lack of sound dampening makes it a deal-breaker.

    Haven't looked back since getting a Fractal Design Define R5.

    "Complicate and add fingerprints"

    Having owned a glass paneled case, I can honestly say I have better things to do than to constantly wipe away dust and greasy smudges.

    I'm a big fan of how this. It's something genuinely stylish in a market that often seems exclusively catered towards people who like their PC's to resemble alien spacecraft. If I was looking for a case right now, I'd probably take one of these.

    Ooo, another case with loads of fans with a solid plate in front of it and small holes round the edge.

    Unfortunately it looks like most manufacturers are jumping onto the tempered glass train.

    Re: Corsair Crystal Series 570X RGB

    I have a windowed case and do like some exposure... but at the same time feel that PCBs and exposed wiring should not be seen as it looks cheap and half-finished.

    Had I the cash, I'd get one of those Sabertooth motherboards, to keep the ugly hidden!

    Re: Corsair Crystal Series 570X RGB

    I'm not sure about this case
    Like the concept not sure about the execution , cable management looks a bit dodgy and then theres the question of tje USB 3 heade rcable

    In the UK this will retail for about £185 and only comes with 3x 120mm fans

    I'de rather have this with 140mm fans as would like to use a 280mm AIO (nzxt x61 / corsair h110i v2)

    Any one have other recemendations?

    Re: Corsair Crystal Series 570X RGB

    Why on earth would you want glass one the rear/ right side of it ? to show off all the cables zip tied together ?

    Must admit this case does nothing for me

    Re: Corsair Crystal Series 570X RGB

    Looks great from the side/front view, but having the glass exposing the underside of the mobo and all the cables isn't clever.

    Being a magnet for dust and a heavy noise polluter also put me right off.

    Why no reset button? That's ridiculous.
