    Our under-load reading is actually pretty good....
    "pretty good" aka "the best of any chassis under test"? Given the decent cooling performance as well, I think the load noise level is pretty remarkable!

    Very little to complain about Corsair cases. They really are raising the bar for the competition...

    Thermaltake - who are they?

    "but we suspect it'll be a real challenge trying to squeeze in a 240m liquid-cooled radiator"

    I have yet to meet a case that could take a 240m radiator!
    Assuming you meant a 240mm radiator then it seems very easy, ditch the drive cages and one of the 5.25" bays and a 240mm radiator fits in front

    Re: Reviews - Corsair Graphite Series 230T

    they have a windowed version of this case w/c is good for me... but one thing i dont like is the wires that you cant hide from the side where the hdd's are placed even if it has a good space behind the case for wire management, i still dont like that most of the wires are exposed. i think rubber grommets are needed also if they have a windowed version of this.

    None of those cases are 240 metres long(or about 264 yards), your local park won't be that big.

    cjs150 was referring to a typo that left the extra "m" off of the millimetre symbol making it the metre symbol, a difference of a factor of 10.

    You appear to have missed the missing 'm'. The issue he was pointing out is they've put metres, not millimetres. That's a world of difference.
