For a number of years, most of the computer cases were made from simple materials – like metal or plastic.
But things are a bit different today – some companies decided to innovate and try their hands with new materials, and one of them is the tempered glass.
As you can already guess, the greatest thing about cases made out of glass is the fact that they can give you an unobstructed view of your PC’s internal components, and we don’t even have to mention how sleek this can look.
We’ve decided to take a closer look at Corsair’s new PC case that utilizes this interesting material – the Corsair Tempered Glass Crystal Series 570X.
Interesting features of the Corsair Crystal Series 570X
This popular PC case has a lot of good things going for it, and we’re going to try to list the most important of them.
The design of the Corsair 570X is definitely one of the best we’ve seen so far – the four glass-made panels that are present on the sides of this case are enclosing the entire chassis, which means that all the components of your build will be on display.
There’s also the customizable lighting, allowing you to light up the whole build with impressive LED effects. Each of the three included SP120 RGB fans is equipped with beautiful, configurable LED lights, giving the user a chance to personalize the build – and this is always a big plus in our book.
Another great thing is the fact that this case has enough room for virtually anything – there are mounting points for six case fans, and the chassis is fully compatible with the 120mm, 280mm, and 360mm radiators. The cable management is also very well done, as there are cable routing channels with the Velcro cable straps.
The whole thing is also very easy to clean, with the dust filters on the top, bottom, and the front being very easy to access. You won’t have to spend a lot of time on cleaning.
Our only complaint is the lack of the fan controller.
