    I suppose if you can't be bothered building a float for the pride parade this'll do in a pinch.

    Unfortunately you'll have to spend the extra £50 for the Commander Pro to light both sides of the float, and even then, when the engine stop/starts the iCUE software will cut out anyway

    Re: Corsair Crystal Series 680X RGB

    So... aside from including some (removable) RGB fans in the package, there's nothing about the case that makes it actually RGB in any way?
    OK, whatever...

    The layout is nice and it looks rather pretty, except for the glass bits.
    Could still do with some 5.25" bays, or some kind of similar front access expansion, for custom-modded modules if nothing else.

    my 570x has an offset top fan rail- but is still about an inch too short to have push/pull. as this case is around the same height i can`t see it making a lot of difference.

    i do find dust filters in the top of cases puzzling i must say: why do you want to filter air that is on it`s way out of the case [in i would imagine nearly all setups]?

    the dual chamber design does suit my `holiday suitcase` wiring ineptitude though.

    In certain configurations you might want to draw air in from the top. I can imagine a couple of cases where you'd do that. Say you have a pet that sheds hair everywhere and you don't want filters to clog up stupidly fast. Hot fluids rise but if you can outdo that with the pressure and you're not looking for extremes, just decent cooling, you might decide to draw the air from the top and exhaust at the bottom. Get it right and it'll work just fine. That's one example. Certainly not for extreme overclockers but I'm talking the average person like.... me.

    I personally think dust filters supplied on all the potential intakes makes sense and then you remove them if you don't want them and use them to swap out with the ones you are using. Allows you to wash them and so on.

    I've got a similar case and the dual chamber thing is amazingly fun. I recently redid the power subsystem with new PSU and new wiring with new routing. The side with the components is fine and nice and neat but the side with the PSU is looks like an octopus orgy (or massacre, take your pick). I just pulled all the slack on all the cables into there and mashed the cover on. Job. Done.

    I have to say I have always loved the "cube" themes cases, and am kind of suprised it has not become more popular. Would love to see other brands have a go at it too
